Aaaaah, the blood moon is so beautiful! I took an “eh” quality picture of it on my tablet (really it just looks like a finger in a field of black but I know what it is at least). I love the cycles of the universe around us, ohmagawsh.
Also Mars is the closest tonight that it’s been since 2008, so says the news. It’s almost as bright as Venus tonight. Go neighbor planets! Woo woo!
Beautiful Lunar Eclipse occurring right now. There’s a bite out of the full moon, as promised, but it will become a blood moon at midnight approx. Go out if you’re still awake and see it when it turns red!
Admittedly, going into formal workshop today (on my own with no one else’s piece to review, so the class was focused on my work), I was a little nervous. I feel like perhaps I hadn’t become as close to the class as I wanted to, nor they with me, but today revived my spirits. I presented a work which I thought may have been on something too sensitive, on feelings too raw, and that it wouldn’t have been well received.
But my class pleasantly surprised me—the resounding consensus was that of admiration for my writing and the plot. They also gave me so many good tips and tricks to make it even better, and I’m so thankful for that. I was able to employ my love of mysticism and the unnatural in a story successfully (finally) and combine it with a seemingly real-world past to create my own world and circumstances, so it was said. It was such a wonderful night; I learned so much more and I’m that much more thankful to have peers in my class who are passionate and care about the efforts of my writing as I care about theirs. Reciprocation in a circle of writers is such a wonderful feeling; it’s like being wrapped in a warm blanket.
Many thanks to all my fellow workshoppers, my true friends, for your valuable critiques and your never-failing interest in what I’ve written. What lovely people that surround me. ; U ; ! I am truly grateful.
I almost think my game is stuck or something = w = Except for the break period I had for a month or so, I keep up with AC:NL every day and I have never seen hide nor hair of Gracie. I know she’s supposed to come randomly but I seriously have never seen her.
I just want the T&T Emporium, really, but I wonder if I haven’t bought enough at Labelle’s to warrant Gracie coming or something?
yeah but lets be real here if it meant I could live in a world with completely free healthcare and take tours across entire countries on foot with superpowered animal/else companions I would fight a hundred fucking beedrill at once naked with only a butter knife
Oh my goodness gracious golly I got my very first brand new car today! ; A ; I’m so exciteddddddd he’s so handsome and beautiful and everything else under the big blue sky, I love him. He’s got some serious business headlights and a cute as heckie hatchback butt. Aaaag, today was a great day.
I’m going to call him Hershel. Hershy for short. Might post pictures tomorrow. :3
Mocha’s becoming a moody cranky nipper. She bit me yesterday for no reason, and now when she wants me to let go of her she tries to nip at my fingers. I’m starting to get the feeling that her little tumors are bothering her…in addition she’s become quite slow nowadays… I think she might be entering the last half a year or so of her life.
I want to take her for a vet visit to see if it’s a possible plan to have the tumors removed, but LouLou’s surgery was upward of $300.00, and I don’t think I’ll be able to afford a double removal.
I’m also almost certain that my vet will advise letting her live the rest of her life out. I get that. She’s a little past her prime at 1 and a half years old; there’s more of a possibility that she could have complications. (She was bred as a feeder rat in a crummy pet store; I doubt her longevity looks that great).
But I’m worried, because even if she does bite me when she’s cranky I still love her with all my heart. It was a long road trying to gain her trust and a longer road still in gaining friendship, and I wouldn’t have traded a day of it. She’s my baby, and like Lou I just want her to be free and easy and happy.
Tumors are so heartbreaking.
