I should totally have put up one more post for auto-publishing, but I didn’t think it would take so long for me to get back into writing one again. Sooo, autumn vacation is over, people are getting sick, leaves are falling, people are getting sick, and Christmas isn’t that far away. Oh, and people are getting sick. This will just be a random post about my current thoughts and activities, so nothing special. You can skip it, haha!
Let’s start with Inktober! I was actually doing really great, until vacation time hit, and then my boyfriend got sick. When he’s lazy, I’m lazy, so I got nothing done the last 4 days, ugh! I feel awful for not having done one drawing a day, as my streak was awesome. But I did the drawings last night, and will post them on Instagram today. I’ve noticed how doing a tiny drawing a day has actually made me active overall. I feel like doing something more after being done with my drawing, and it has led to me make more bracelets again. Chainmaille is really fun, so I’m sticking to that for a while, although I’m also planning some washer bracelets. On top of that, I’m also working on displays for bracelets and necklaces. If I succeed in making them pretty and useful, I will write tutorials on how to make them yourself, as they are made with materials almost everyone has lying around or can get for cheap anyway. Being creative and crafty is so much fun!
But as the title states, I’ve also been pretty lazy. We started watching the new Star Trek Discovery on Netflix, and despite what people say about it, I think it’s absolutely brilliant! Yeah, granted, Michael is a shitty main character, but the focus isn’t that much on her anymore, so that’s nice. We also watched Star Trek Beyond, and although it was riddled with flaws, it was still a really great movie. Aaand I’ve finally gotten around to watch the last episode of Little Witch Academia, the first season at least, and will write a review for it here soon (next post I believe). Castlevania has also been dragged through my lazy eyeballs, and although it only had a few episodes for starters, I’m eager to see what will happen next. The pacing is a little off, but overall, I found the story to be interesting, so I hope they’ll make more episodes sooooon! Yesterday, I started watching Mononoke and Mushishi, and while I’m not sure if I want to continue with Mononoke, I’m sure as hell gonna finish Mushishi! It’s absolutely wonderful!
Since the last 2 weeks were vacation and sick time (not for me, I’m fine, yay!), I haven’t really played much FFXIV. Got a few hours for myself, and did the challenge log as good as I could, but that’s it, ugh. Monk is lvl 70, and now I’m on Bard, because why not. Deadpool is still alive and kicking as a retainer, and I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of him again. Having those extra 20 marketplace slots has made it so much easier to level crafting, as I don’t clutter my inventory with all the stuff I want to sell. Playing is my way of getting rid of stress, and often the sole reason I even turn on the PC. And I need to play for DAYS now to get back to normal!
So, that’s what I’ve been up to. Vacation time and Netflix, hooray. It’s November soon though, and the time for me to buy Christmas presents. That means, that it’s also time for others to buy presents, and I better get my shop up and running for the shopping rush! Not that I’d expect any sales, but it would be fun. My goal was to have it up and running when summer was over, but I just never got around to it. Maybe because I’m still unsure of how Storenvy works, and it really keeps me away from actually doing anything. Ugh, I hate myself for that. I just need to kick myself in the bum and get it done!
