Crazy weather week had me running around coatless one day and freezing the next. Sorry for the late post.

Spring Break at work went quietly and well. I got to have a meeting about my big project and get some plans in place. We will have an awareness campaign over the next few months and hopefully be able to provide better resources in a more accessible way to all our students.

In health news, my weight is mostly maintaining a slight downward trajectory. I have started seeing a therapist to work on anxiety and self care to keep my journey going in a healthy direction. I have also started writing a new short story and my drawing is improving, too.

Nervous Goblin: Nott the Brave from Critical Role

Nervous Goblin: Nott the Brave from Critical Role

I finished listening to Every Heart a Door by Seanan McGuire and now am on to Friday Black, written by Nana Qwame Adjei-Brenyah, the older brother of a good friend. I am also very excited for a new comic coming out this week: A Darkened Wish, written by B. Dave Walters and drawn by Tess Fowler. And also, the Critical Role Kickstarter just surpassed another stretch goal, now reaching over 10 times the original requested amount!

Or Herstory month, as my morning brunch was calling it. Lead by an amazing woman here at CSCC, who is leading the charge for equal pay and better maternity/paternity leave policies. Dr Crystal Clark is a wonderful speaker, and left us with this message: It is better to speak, and be a powerful and dangerous woman, than to be silent and forgotten. When we stand up for ourselves, we stand up for everyone. Happy International Women’s Day, indeed.

In other work news, I am tabulating my use and usability tests to create action items for a meeting next week. I am also preparing a presentation with a co-worker for our In Service Day next month. We are heading into Spring Break this weekend (for students anyway).

In life… ConCoction was a fun weekend with friends. Going to see Captain Marvel tonight. I’ve spent my week obsessing over the Critical Role Kickstarter which made its goal in 40 minutes, and has had to scramble to create new stretch goals when we blasted past all their original ones in less than 9 hours. We are well on our way (6 episodes so far) to an animated series.

In book news, I finished Girl of Paper and Fire, and started listening to Stephen Fry talking about Victorian Secrets. Next up is Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire. I have finally finished Campaign one of Critical Role. Next is catching up on Relics and Rarities. I’ve read a few more Captain Marvel comics, as well as the Vox Machina Origins series. A new issue of DIE is out, and I should read Locke and Key v. 3 soon, too.

May is always a busy month, and this month is no different. First weekend I went up to visit my Parents, Nieces,¬†Brother, and his Fianc√©e and her kids. Second weekend was MarCon. This weekend was a Pokemon Community Day, Deadpool 2, and lots of cleaning to get ready for next weekend. Next weekend is Barfleet’s annual camping trip. For which, I’ve been busy punching 160+ personalized dogtags, with a very old and cranky machine.

Work is going great. I’m loving all the things I get to do, and my lovely coworkers. I had a great time at Innovate 2018 at OSU, and an ALAO conference called Actively Inclusive. Currently creating a Use and Usability study for our Research Guides.

On the reading front, I finished Dead Beat and listened to The Magician. New Butcher book coming next month, and a buy two for one credit sale on Audible right now. Haven’t looked at it yet, but my credit just came through.

Also, there’s a new baby kitty outside.
