Looking forward to next week, full of turkey dinners. Found family, gaming family, and friends. Then a weekend of tabletop gaming. I really enjoy having a job that gives time off for holidays.

This month at work has been a lot of getting ready. Prep for a colleague leaving and reallocating her responsibilities. Prep for the archival work starting next month. Gathering accessibility resources for upcoming web and document work. Looking forward to a productive 2020.

At home, I still working on drawing and writing several new stories. If I can get in gear to draw my gaming characters, I might post those next month. When I get more minis painted, I will post those as well.

In listening, I’m still working on Snow Crash, and The Starless Sea is next. I need to catch up on my comics, too, but my focus has been on creating for these months.

For my parents, brother, aunt, and anyone else who might be curious about what I am talking about when I mention Critical Role. This article about Critical Role and the church is Really, Really good.

The semester has started and the students and winter have returned in full force. Icy mornings, and full computer banks fill my days.

This coming weekend is also DeCon, in a new hotel. And we will be full of Pirates. We have a pirate family coming, and our very own pirate artist as Guest of Honor, along with our usual shenanigans.

On a creative note, I have restarted my gaming blog, and added my NaNo project, planning to put a lot of my new writing online. This time as a separate account at WordPress: Ravonlocke.

Watching: I am up to Episode 75 of Critical Role, campaign one. Listening: I finished Mask of Shadows and started Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. Reading: I have moved on to Locke and Key v. 2, and read DIE Issue 1, a D&D + Jumanji mashup. Looking forward to A Darkened Wish. I did read the first volume of Saga over the holidays, and bought a bunch of comics on sale. And finally figured out that Chronicles of Atlantis is an Aquaman comic. (This is how little I knew before The Wednesday Club.) There is just So Much.

Graduation at CSCC was yesterday. I watched via the live stream, and it was nice to see nearly 1400 students receive their diplomas.  Students have finished their exams and we’re now heading into semester break. One week of work, and then a week off for the holidays.

Heading to a Festivus party this evening with friends. I’ve finally gotten all my Christmas presents taken care of, and my first convention ticket for 2019 taken care of for my own present. Looking forward to seeing my family this holiday season.

Started our new Mage School campaign on Tuesday, and finalizing my character for the holiday marathon. Still working on City of Brass, about 2/3 of the way through. I still have long waitlists on all my other library books.
