So as you might have suspected, this dorky potato took a bit of a blogging break, because A.) she was really busy, and B.) she was blocked on everything from drawing to blogging to existing.*
*It was a trying time.
But I think the blocks have mostly gone, and I'm trying to work blogging back in, because I LIKE blogging and I miss it when I don't.
If all goes well we might even have a Picture Saturday!*
I do apologize for this lack of everything, and I'll try to be better.
So! Here's what happened in my life:
1.) I finished Lockwood & Co and became rather sad, because after reading Lockwood & Co, I only wanted to read about Lockwood and Lucy and George. And since book 3 isn't out yet, I had to make do with the final Percy Jackson book.
2.) Speaking of which, I hated the last Percy Jackson book. I will never read it again. It was terrible, and I'm mad! I might have to do a post on it, because after finishing the series, I don't think I can publicly recommend Percy Jackson anymore.
3.) On a happy note, I'm twenty now! And my cousin came up for a visit, and it was just a really awesome birthday. (Last year's might have sucked a little.)
Art supplies, and a freaking baseball glove (!!!), and a bullet-knife (looks like a bullet, but it's a knife.) and a $25 dollar gift certificate to B&N. Chocolate! Life is good, people. Life is GOOD.
I have a new tote bag. I use it way too much.
Also, I have a Supernatural Clue Game. I HAVE A SUPERNATURAL CLUE GAME. (be jealous, Cait.) The people in my life know me way too well. I'm gonna swap out Cas's character for John, but yeah. Good game, quite fun.
4.) Bella and I helped Amy film the video for the song she sang.
It was raining quite hard the whole time, but I got this really awesome picture of the rainbow.
I did absolutely nothing to this picture and it's beautiful, and I think it looks like a freaking fairytale.
6.) My solo for voice class went really well, I think, and if you want, you can watch it here. I was happy with it, but it sounded better live. lol.
7.) I'm re-reading the whole Penderwicks series because they're clean, they're fun, and they remind me of my family. (And because I just read the last book, cried many copious tears over it, and decided a re-read was in order.) I'm working on characters sketches of the people in the book, which also consists of pulling my hair out because I care a lot about these characters and it's hard for me to draw what I care about.
8.) We FINALLY have a frozen yogurt place in town and I can die happy now.
9.) Happy 4th of July, by the way, to all my American followers! *distant cheering from Americans. Fireworks. Explosions. So patriotic. Distant groaning from everyone else.*
I love the 4th of July, it's always such a nice day, and I always feel the need to sing The Star Spangled Banner at the top of my voice. "AND THE ROCKET'S RED GLARE! THE BOMBS BURSTING IN AIR! GAVE PROOF THROUGH THE NIGHT, THAT OUR FLAG WAS STILL THERE!" I mean, maybe it's just me, but I think it's a more invigorating song than most national anthems.*
Toink may have sat in a puddle. She might have then asked me to document it.
It rained all day on the 4th. Our back road was a giant puddle, and we almost cancelled s'more making. (But we didn't, and Chloe was so happy.)
It was a good day despite that, and we made fun of the rain. Because when you say, "Toink, make a mad face!" she does and it's adorable.
10.) Who else is gonna go watch the Minion movie in theaters? Because I am. Because minion. movie.
11.) Now I shall finish reading Lark before I have to go to work. (Seriously, James is one of the single most attractive guys in bookish history.)
Cheers, bai, and God bless!
