 I ended up taking a break for the summer, mostly because I'm terrible at posting when I don't have a set schedule, but like homework and ill timed late night heart to hearts, it's September and I'm back!

A quick summary of the past three months or so:
  • Started volunteering at a birth center after a lengthy and confusing application process. I mostly file things and I'm unreasonably excited about it
  • Studied Russian very slowly, not feeling to great about it tbh
  • Fell in love with Killjoys because best friends and siblings kicking ass in space with great world building and supporting characters is pretty much all I could ask for (plus it was renewed for a second season today) 
  • Went to Maine with my family and shared the most uncomfortable futon I have ever slept on with my sister for three days
  • Went to my first comic con (as Kate Bishop/Hawkeye)

That pretty much sums it up

 Todays links are all about pysanky symbolism. I first learned how  to make these from a friend's Russian grandmother when I was very young.
