So I have 10 Imsy invites if anyone wants one! I'm heartship on there. I have no idea what I'm doing and I don't like that I don't have an individual journal. I definitely prefer DW to it but it if it becomes the next big thing and displaces tumblr on the top of the fandom pile, I'm all for it. At least people talk on it.

So one of the first monologues we analyzed in script writing was about a woman with leukemia who's facing down her death. Of course, I started crying in class, haha. I made it through and afterwards a friend comforted me and I headed over the the art building. I was really tempted to just go home but i didn't want to miss any class.

Because I'm in painting 5, I can wear headphones and do my own thing. So I'm listening to music and this unknown recording comes on.

Now, for some reason, my phone has the habit of just randomly recording the sounds around it. idk why it does this but it does. Normally I just delete because it's not like anything important is being recorded; usually just the sound of me eating or something. But for some reason I decide to go ahead and listen to this one. Probably because I was concentrating pretty hard on the piece I was working on and didn't want to like, press the skip button lmao.

So I'm working and listening to myself eating chips or something out of a bag, when suddenly my dad starts talking. Apparently this recording took place in the living room and he'd come in from the back porch and started talking to my mom. And he sounds happy and whole and I'm sure this was around Christmas time because he complained about it being cold outside.

And I'm just so happy. I was so afraid I'd eventually forget what he sounded like. But I won't. I have this. I have like nine more that I need to listen to of various lengths.

And if I'd just gone home after script writing, I probably wouldn't have heard this for a long while. It's funny how things work out.

Home alone! Mom and sister went to the book sale and I elected to stay home. :3

If anyone's playing No Man's Sky and you find yourself on a planet called Hecate's Cradle, that's the planet I crashed landed on and named! :D

I'm going to try like hell to a) finish this fic and b) finish this sketch. That's it, those are my goals for today.

So I had my doctor's appointment last Thursday! Cut for general doctor-y things, it was a breast exam so yeah )

Classes are going well. I have so many friends in my painting class that it really makes up for having THE MOST ANNOYING PERSON ALIVE in there as well. |D

Sketch! This one is a little big, idk why my phone's camera took this one bigger, I didn't change any settings but anyway Sad gay dudes saying goodbye )

My sister and Mom are going to the Really Good, Really Big, Really Cheap Book Sale tomorrow and I'm debating whether I want to go. On one hand, I've never been before and it might be fun! On the other hand, I'm tired, Mom and my sister should spend time together without me, and I could spend the time with my dogs, who've been kind of overshadowed by the kittens. XD

Crap, I really should have been getting ready for work instead of writing this post! |D

I bought a 3.5x5 inch sketchbook in attempts to do a sketch a day in it! This is the first one, because I always start sketchbooks with a battle lady. XD Just a reminder that my instagram is Heartfelt Ghost Studios and while it's rarely used, I'm going to start using it more often. It's just so easy to post stuff there. ;;;

Today was the first day of classes, by which I mean I had my only Mon, Wed, Fri class, which is graphic design. It was a little overwhelming being surrounded by so many people again and my professor knew about my dad so she gave me a hug and then after class we went to her office to talk. She told me if I ever need to leave class due to emotions, she understands, and that if I need to a quiet place to sit then her office is always open. She's so nice. ;3; I'll have to remember this when I'm struggling in her class, since she's a very tough teacher, haha.

Tomorrow begins the bulk of my classes (environmental science, public speaking, script writing, and painting v) although I'll be missing script writing since I have a doctor's appointment. I hope that professor doesn't get too upset that I'm missing the first day of his class but on the other hand, I frankly don't care that much if he does. |D

It's quiet. The Olympics are on tv but it's turned low, so we can pay attention if we want and ignore it if we want. It's just Mom and me. She's in her chair and I can faintly hear the sounds of her clicking the mouse. I'm on the couch. The air purifier is humming away, creating a lovely white noise. The kittens have been playing in non-destructive ways and now Penelope is sitting on the couch with me. The dogs are quiet. It's a little bit cloudy out, so the sunlight is a soft grey where it's trickling in from the blinds and the glass door leading out to the back porch.

It's a good morning. :)

OH and I suppose I should add that I'm reading A Year's Temptation by [personal profile] lomonaaeren, which is an oldie but goodie.

I'm experiencing two different kinds of sads. The first kind sad, I experience daily. Missing Dad, being reminded of dumb jokes we had or how he touched other people's lives. It's a good sad, one that makes me cry but then I'm over it.

The second kind of sad happens when I'm reminded of the last few days of his life or when I'm reminded of the day we got the diagnosis. That's a bad sad, and tends to keep me up at night crying.

Last night a bad sad happened. But at least I woke up this morning okay.

I've been invited to go to a Harry Potter and the Cursed Child midnight release party with some friends at the nearest Barnes & Noble. Kinda tempted, ngl. But also kinda not tempted because I'm old and midnight is a time I like to be curled up watching tv. XD Also I work that day and I'm going clothing shopping early the following day. So. :\a

Classes start in less than two weeks! Aaaaaahhh. Last night I broke out the watercolors and tried to figure out if I knew what I was doing. I don't. |D But that's okay because I got a lot of practice with them and by the end of it, I think I kind of got the hang of them. It was fun. I'll probably play around with them more tonight. I'm terribly inspired by Qinni but I don't want to straight up copy her. I want to paint some Mori boys. ;3;

I've been playing Pokemon off and on lately, although I've been slowing down a bit as new to me Pokemon get harder to find, haha. Oh well. It's still a cute game. I'm really excited for Sun and Moon though. I really like the newer Pokemon that they've shown us.

ALSO. No Man's Sky comes out the same day as classes start. How am I suppose to play that game AND have a life? ;;;;

Hello friends! I have been consumed lately with working, getting the house in order, and playing Pokemon Go. I am exhausted.

my art studio
First thing's first! I have an art studio! The art desk is for traditional art, the computer desk is for digital art, and the tv is for catching up on all the things I want to watch. XD I look forward to spend plenty of time in this room staring at a piece of paper and wondering what the hell am I going to draw. XD

We also finally fixed our electricity! We haven't been able to run too many things at once without it shutting off. Which meant having to go out to the main breaker box and flipping the switch. So we'd only been running one thing at a time; the stove or the AC (very rarely the AC because it would cause the power to shut off all by itself) or the water heater. Also, hey it was a fire hazard! Which we didn't know until like, four days before it was fixed! But anyway, a neighbor who has a ton of electrical experience came out and took care of it and didn't allow my mom to pay him, even though it ended up being an all-day job. ;3;

Pokemon Meet Up at Flowery Branch!
A friend and I are going to this! And I'm pretty hyped. :D Pokemon has consumed my free time. I caught so many new Pokemon new pokemon just today. I'm kinda tempted to share them all.

....ah hell, I'm doing it. Under here! )

Other slightly unusual catches were three Abras and a Scyther. I already had caught those before but they're not exactly common around here.

...look I said I was addicted, okay?! It's so much fun. ;3;

Now I'm going to settle down and read some Live Free or Die Hard fics and try not to fall asleep before 10pm. XD

Today's my last day of vacation. :( So I'm setting up my studio space and going through my dresser drawers, getting rid of old clothes and crap I don't care about anymore. When [personal profile] imperion gets off work, we're going to go pokehunting and after that, I'm probably going to come home, flop, and practice using the watercolors I bought. :D

And hey, at least when I go to work tomorrow, I can see what kind of pokestops and pokemon are hanging out around there. XD
nanslice: (Default)
Okay, so who's playing Pokemon Go? The obsession is real. I'm pretty sure I walked more today than I have in a while.

Guess who had to go to the ER today! Yeah, it was me. :\ I mentioned in my previous post that I was having some chest pain that I chalked up to overexerting myself. Welp, last night I started having heart palpitations and that, combined with the chest pain, really freaked me out. I was so scared I was going to have a heart attack over night, guys, y'all don't even understand, lmao. I woke up this morning feeling a ton better! I mowed the yard (using a push mower, even!) and my chest felt fine! Mom and I went to town to pick up some things and then the palpitations came back and I was like WELP. Going to the ER now.

I was diagnosed with ventricular bigeminy, which is basically an irregular heartbeat. The doctor said that it's not really anything to worry about until, like, 50 years from now, haha. One of my nurses told me she'd been diagnosed with the same thing 15 years ago and while she enjoys her morning coffee, drinking a couple of cokes causes the palpitations to get stronger. So I'm going to cut down on caffeine, I think.

Also the chest pain doesn't have anything to do with this. That actually was from overexerting myself. It's just the palpitations.

I'm suppose to schedule a meeting in a week or so with the actual cardiologist to get an echocardiogram to see the actual setup of my heart.

Today was my first ever IV, which sucked a lot (I've never spent any time in a hospital), my first time having blood drawn that I can remember, and my first x-ray since third grade. EXCITING.

Anyway, like the doctor said, it's not anything serious but I'm glad I know anyway. I would have stressed myself out so much worrying about it, haha.

☆ We watched Independence Day: Resurgence! Spoilers )

☆ Mom and I went to the nearby outlet mall and did some shopping (I bought the cutest fucking leggings, aaaahh so precious) and ate out at a pretty nice restaurant. We were both in a good mood and we both got some good walking in before it got to hot to breath. It's been a good day. ;3;

☆ I've been on the NoSleep forum on Reddit and man, some of them have fucked me up, lmao. I'll be doing a rec post sometime in the future, although chances are if you're into creepy stories, you've already read the ones that I'm going to rec.

☆ I've had to do some pretty heavy lifting (70-80lb dogs from floor to about chest height) over the past week and I'm paying for it now. I'm pretty sure I pulled some muscles in my shoulder and chest; I'm experiencing a gentle, pulsing pain just under my right breast, going up to my shoulder. Boooo. If it doesn't go away, I'm going to the doctor and seeing if they can give me something. :\

☆ I'M ON VACATION! \o/! Until next Thursday! It's going to be an easy going week, I think. Catching up on sleep (if I can, reading the stupid spoopy stories I'm reading), catching up on shows (Voltron, mostly!), and spending time with my puppies and kitties. ;3;
nanslice: (Default)
I started playing Final Fantasy Brave Exvius yesterday. It's pretty interesting! It's an odd mix between typical cell phone game (gems to buy if you want, energy, borrowing friend's party leaders in battle) and typical jrpg (npcs, exploration). I quite like it so far! The main characters, Rain and Lasswell, are kind of freaking adorable and I already ship them, because of course I do.

LOOK AT LASSWELL MAKING EYES AT RAIN. I mean, come on. I'm 100% into it.

Mom and I watched Zootopia last week. I'm not as in love with it as a lot of people seem to be but it was super cute and I loved the universe.

We're going to watch Independence Day: Resurgence today! I adored the original movie when it came out so I'm hoping this one follows in its footsteps, at least a little.

This morning is going to be devoted to catching up on Camp Nano stuff. I've finally been inspired to write some things. Finally.
nanslice: (Default)
So I'm planning on doing Camp NaNoWriMo this coming July. Again. I think focusing on a project like this will be good for me. Once again, I have no idea what I'm going to write so instead of planning like I usually do, I'm going to wing it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Due to everything going on, I ended up missing the priority deadline for financial aid. Hopefully the priority deadline just means I won't be a priority but I'll still get financial aid.

A friend wants me to take a play writing class next semester! I'm going to have to drop a class to take it but that's okay. I'll probably drop photography, since eeeh. I'm not to terribly enthused about that one anymore.

Going back to work tomorrow. We'll see how it goes!

Also, meet Hecky. He's my new love. Selphie's afraid of him, hahaha, my sweet baby pumpkin head. ;3;

Thank you very much to everyone who commented on the previous post. I'm going through periods of being okay to being completely devastated. But I know that everything happened the way he wanted; he passed away at home and my mom and I were right by his side. He didn't go through any of the pain the hospital guaranteed he would go through and he was never strung out on drugs.

Mom and I have started the pretty arduous process of going through his stuff and getting the house set up for our new normal. We also went to the shelter and got two kittens, because a death in the family is definitely a good time to get new pets, right? Yeah. Probably not the best idea but they've brought some laughter and also annoyance (CATS) to the house and that's pretty important.

We're doing okay. We've been able to laugh about some of the things Dad used to do and also predict what his reactions would have be to new stuff ("I ain't been gone a week and y'all are already filling the house up with damn cats!"). I'm sad, of course; a kind of bone deep, empty kind of sad, and I think Mom and I are clinging to each other pretty tightly right now. But I'm still able to laugh. I'm able to think about him without crying. I'm able to remember the good times, of which there have been many. I'm not living in despair.

It's going to be okay.

My dad passed away at 7:50am this morning. Thank you all for being here. I love you guys.
nanslice: (Default)
It's been a bad day. Someone please tell me it's okay to spend most of the day just kind of sitting on my ass. I'll go to my dad when he needs me but I need to get some rest.

Krampus: I don't know what I was expecting with this film but spoilers )

10 Cloverfield Lane: So okay, I have had a crush on Mary Elizabeth Winstead ever since I first saw her in Final Destination 3 so this film already had that going in its favor. spoilers )

The Boy: Haha, okay, I also have a crush on Lauren Cohan so this was another film that had that going in its favor. spoilers )

Also, Mom watched Age of Ultron and really liked it! This is the woman who once said she didn't like superhero movies! And yet she adored Winter Soldier and Avengers, went with me to watch Civil War, and now really liked Age of Ultron. Doesn't like superhero movies, my butt.

I've been devouring Fast and Furious fics! I don't know what brought back my interest in this fandom that I'd had a brief but intense affair with back in freaking 2001 and then wrote maybe two ficlets for in like, 2009? I haven't even seen all the movies! I watched the first one and then [personal profile] imperion and I watched Fast and Furious when it came out in theaters but that's it. Although I'm terribly tempted to buy the box set and binge on these ridiculous movies. And then write all the Dom/Brian fic I can handle. ;;;
