I had a great time at GenCon. My presentation at OPAL was a success. My brain is full thrust into my next adventure.

My apologies for the radio silence, but it likely won’t get better until September. I’ll try to post a photo or two here as I go, but the majority won’t be up until I get back.

In the meantime, I’ve colored in a few of the sketches I did earlier this year. Enjoy!

It’s almost WorldCon!

August Already August 1, 2019

Tomorrow is my first professional presentation at a conference. All the nerves, but it will be fine. I have been getting a lot of practice here at school, so it won’t be complete stage fright, just a bit jangled. I am prepared and have all the info I need, and all will be well. I put a lot of work into this project, someone ought to hear about it.

Then my first GenCon, first live CR show, followed shortly by my second WorldCon, first time in Scotland and a best friend’s wedding. It’s a great month ahead of me. All the excitement! I even put pockets in my skirt!

I had a great time with friends this past weekend and a nice trip up to see family. Duvet cover for my birthday, I have reached adulting status. (Thank you, Pete and Sarah.)

I finished Ender’s Shadow, Wishes and Wellingtons, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Vox Machina Origins II issue 1. Now, I have picked up a new author with Fated by Benedict Jacka. It’s a modern British wizard story in the vein of Dresden, he even references him a bit at the beginning. I also picked up issue 2 of A Darkened Wish. It’s so Pretty!

Happy Birthday, Erika!!!

It’s been a pretty rough week outside, but nothing unusual for July. Makes me not want to go out and do things though. On this, the first community day for a new Harry Potter game. Might still do…

Work has been busy. Boss’s last day. Code4Lib Midwest chapter conference for two days. Meetings and measurements in the Archive. Writing up my presentation for OPAL. All the things with an August 1st deadline. Having a consultation this week with a conservator, then may have to completely rewrite my grant proposal. Still have to create the PowerPoint for my presentation. Weeee, summer!

At home, my skirt is nearly done. Just the hem (which I should have done before attaching the last row, but didn’t), and the waist band, and then sewing the final seem to bring it all together. Been finishing up my coloring page from Girls’ Night, too. All the pretty colorful things.

All the excitement for August. It’s going to be a whirlwind. One conference, Two international conventions, an arts festival, and a wedding!

In books, I finished Ender’s Game Alive, and now I’m listening to Ender’s Shadow. I picked up the first issue of Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins II (both digitally and physical) and on my birthday, A Darkened Wish issue two comes out! I’m hoping to get both signed next month.

Have a great summer!
