 I've been away for a while so here's a brief update, since December 2015 I've:
- passed Chemistry with an A (don't ask me how, I'm positive it was a miracle)
- declared a major (English Lit)
- gotten accepted to study abroad in England
- designed my first show professionally (as a costume designer)
- finished my sophomore year
- turned 21
- gotten a job at a food truck
- committed to doing an art show 
And that's just the highlights.

Vietnamese coffee cake, I want to make this cake immediately enough said
I'm on and urban fantasy kick and I can't get enough of Mercy Thompson and Kate Daniels. Some of the English students at my school refuse to read (or at least admit they read) anything but Literary Fiction, but I have no such compunctions. I read enough lit at school, I can read about werewolves if I want to. If anyone has any recs, please share!!!
Speaking of "beach" novels (as my mum would call them), can I just say that Sarah Dessen really has stood the test of time well, her most recent book Saint Anything made me cry just last month and I've been reading her since I was 14
Namesake just keeps getting better
I discovered bullet journalling in the winter and I've been using a modified version ever since, here's my inspiration board on Pinterest
My family went to Disney World and I fell in love with these adorable dolls (my brother laughed at me but you are never to old for dolls in my humble opinion), Lilo is definitely my favorite
I want these shoes
Killjoys is just so good guys, last week there was a space ship inside of an astroid!!!

Long time no see. I've been busy with real life but apparently the Universe has decided I need a break because I pulled a muscle in my back last week and I have had to take a few days off from work. I'm trying to make the most this time to focus more on myself and what I need so I thought it would be good to do a little writing as a distraction, hence bingo. This is is for the Survival Bingo over at [community profile] allbingo  hosted by [personal profile] dialecticdreamer

 Given that November will end in only a few days, I feel okay giving a summary of the month today when I sort of have time. I'm going to try a new method of summarizing, we'll see if it sticks. 

November has been a long month. It feels like it's been a million years since the beginning of the month. November stretches from hell week through midterms to Thanksgiving break. I desperately wanted to do NaNoWriMo but it simply wasn't to be. I was able to find other ways to be creative and I had a good year at the craft fair even though it was quite a haul to get there. The weather was unseasonably warm for most of the month and once the play was over, I was able to find more time for myself. Here's looking forward to December. 

November by the Numbers
Number of times I felt like giving up - embarrassingly high
Number of nights I went to bed before midnight - maybe 5
Number of times I regretted ever signing up for theatre - so many
Number of successful performances of Flare Path - 3
Number of hours spent fighting with the printer - at least 12
Number of days I called in sick to work - 2
Number of classes I skipped - 1
Number of times I went from school to home or home to school - 6
Number of parents who visited me 3
Number of friends times I went out on the weekend - 1
Number of plays seen 2 (counting Flare Path
Number of tests failed - miraculously 0
Number of overdue library books - 2
Number of late assignments - 0 
Number of books read - 6
Number of things I have to be thankful for - too many to count

Poem of the Week
Barter
SARA TEASDALE
Life has loveliness to sell,
All beautiful and splendid things,
Blue waves whitened on a cliff,
Soaring fire that sways and sings,
And children’s faces looking up
Holding wonder like a cup.
 
Life has loveliness to sell,
Music like a curve of gold,
Scent of pine trees in the rain,
Eyes that love you, arms that hold,
And for your spirit’s still delight,
Holy thoughts that star the night.
 
Spend all you have for loveliness,
Buy it and never count the cost;
For one white singing hour of peace
Count many a year of strife well lost,
And for a breath of ecstasy
Give all you have been, or could be.

 Sometimes I hate the holidays ... and then I feel bad. But other times ... I'm feeling very divided right now. Happy Holidays. Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza, Joyous Solstice. etc.

 I've been experimenting with digital art lately ... so here's a sketch of a goat. Don't get too excited.

In other news, I'm planning on coloring my Marvel Bang illustration tomorrow and that'll be uploaded next week to my Livejournal Also, eating jelly beans and reading comics (Black Widow and Ms Marvel in this case) on the subway are my new favorite things and I've discovered that eating protein is the easiest way to feel like a superhero (in this case also known as a semi-functional adult).

 I don't know why I've been in such a bad mood today but I undeniably have been, for no good reason at all. I got a donut this morning and went on a walk and everything. I made dinner and cake (for an anniversary). I finished my book and I actually get to sleep in a real bed tonight.  I just feel like screaming for some reason that is apparently beyond me. I think that "pissed off' describes my mood at the moment quite well. Ahh ... sigh.

 I feel good about today. I've pretty much managed to stay positive and focus on doing things rather than just getting mad like yesterday. Probable reason for my bad mood yesterday )I feel like I got a lot done today. I sent in a volunteer application, wrote two cover letters, picked up my sister, got a form from the DMV, went to the library, made a therapy appointment and a couple other random productive things.
