A strange function of time: the more content I am, the faster it flows...
And the sadder I am, the slower it goes.
My life is jam-packed recently; things happening and whatnot. Lots of getting ready for college, for moving out... and then chores, of course, doing those keep me quite busy usually.
And of course commissions are happening. Toothless came out wonderfully, and this dogsona is looking pretty beautiful so far. I got a mottled gray from one of my favorite wool producers-- my local store sells some of this wool in four ounce balls of roving, and it comes from Holland, and it is simply the prettiest stuff. I'm excited to be able to work with it again; the stuff that went onto the Mews was their Pink Lemonade color. Simply gorgeous, the dimensionality of it.
Harvest Pokemoon is going along great. Lots of submissions; I'm glad people are having fun.
I found some earrings I can convert into Fireshield earrings for my 'Casual' Link cosplay, which is very exciting. I also found a lot of other cool things for projects in the future. I collect odds and ends just so that I can make them into something; I have everything from miniature doilies to discarded earrings and polished quartz waiting for the day I can devote my time to them.
My new glasses should be coming in soon; along with the boxes for sending out the commissions. Hopefully those won't be too long in coming, anyway.
Recently finished all episodes of Dr. Who on Netflix, so now I'm watching MLP:FiM again. I forget how... utterly wholesome that show is. It's such a nice change of pace, from my usual fare of dramas. And the animation is so nice.
is taking a break from the computer, which is looking like it's pretty good for him. I miss him, but y'know, whatcha gonna do. It'll probably be worse during the school year.
Got plans with friends, things to do, going to the beach this week, I think, if my parent's murmurings were correct.
Strangely, Skyrim lost a lot of its appeal to me recently. I dunno, I can still play it for hours on end, but I just... I mean, I go around killing things for people who kill people or I kill people who kill people who are killing because of killing. ...Or something like that. And the people are just so... not people, you know? You have this whole, rich, diverse land and history and conflicting cultures and everything. And then the common people are just that: common. Not one person on the earth is completely common, and if they were, it'd make them extremely rare. It just-- there's no point protecting a land whose people are so... not people.
I wanna go see Brave with my mom. If I can get her to, anyway. I'll be a blubbering mess I bet. Movies I love are way more emotional the second time through...
Got myself a design art trade, which I need to do. I'm also making a couple of adoptable designs. Which, I really actually kinda adore; they're really awesome. But if I can sell them, I will. I'm not going to use them.
Still slowly working on the self-inserts. Pokemon-style is so difficult. I may just drop it and get the darn thing done.
Various other projects on the backburners. For future reference for anyone interested, I want to make Kuzco llama, Stitch (life-size if I can find a good reference), Golden-hair Rapunzel, and Merida. Merida has such glorious hair.
Also I need to find myself a good pair of headphones to alter. Yup. Gonna make me some Sollux headphones. Patron troll, n' all. Although... according to [link]

Average (if Aradia=1 and Fef=12) iiiis... (32+6+24+20+2+4)/12 = (88)/12 = 7.3 which is closest to Terezi. No surprise there, it is an average. :,D
Anyway that was interesting. Lots of things are interesting in the world. Many many things.
And it feels like weeks have happened in the place of days.
