Lot of pain today, even with Vicodin. Can’t much move my head around or open my mouth. Got control of my eyebrow again but my outer layer of skin on most of my face is still numb. Wish the inside were still numb too.
Sorry if I don’t post much of anything (not that I’m a regular poster anyway but weekends I try to queue funnies, didn’t happen this time).
Need hugs and sleep and more ice but it’s in the freezer right now.
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?
