I had my last university class today. I’m really going to miss this. But I miss home, too, just a little. It’s April Fools Day today so I can’t help but think of my little brother who absolutely loves this holiday. He was nine years old when I first left, and he’ll be twelve when I get back. It’s insane how fast everything’s gone by.
Holy moly, I have been keeping a blog for two months! I don’t just have a blog, but I’m posting an average of five posts per week! (That’s an estimate.) This is a big deal. My best friend recently asked how many blogs I had. You know what? I hadn’t really thought about it until she brought it up and I started counting. I have thirteen Tumblr blogs alone, and I post semi-regularly on only six of those. I also have two Blogspot blogs and a Wix blog, all of which I gave up on long ago. If we’re going to count video blogs on YouTube, too, I have four different channels and if I don’t include the videos solely of my dog, the last time I posted a public video was in October, nearly four months ago.
So yes. This blog and the success it’s had (nearly 60 followers as of today!) in the two short months it’s been online is a huge deal.
Here’s a video of my attention-seeking dog to celebrate:
And without much further ado, here are this week’s Weeklies:
Reality Show – Project Runway
Nothing inspires me more than hearing Nina and Zac using creative insults to describe wearable disasters. I sketched so many character designs, blueprints, and costume ideas this past week that I had to look up hand exercises for when my drawing hand cramped up.
Television Show – Agent Carter
A badass female secret agent in the forties? Which passes the Bechdel test in every episode? (I think?) The former girlfriend of Captain America who despite being outnumbered, outgunned, underestimated, and having no powers, can not only hold her own, but owns her hold!?!
Okay, that last line sounded better in my head. My point is, Agent Carter is an excellent show and everyone should watch it. It’s got action, intrigue, Marvel, what more could you ask for?
Sandwich – Peanut Butter and Jelly.
I haven’t had an actual PB&J in so long, but I recently bought some crunchy peanut butter and it’s good for when I’m running late in the mornings. It’s got a nostalgic component to it, too, since I remember having PB&J in those beautiful few years when I was an only child. They stopped after my sister was born. Don’t know why.
That’s about it for now. I wish I watched more movies and read more books that weren’t part of my required reading, but this is okay, too.
