Things I am excited for.

 Next month is Starfest.

I'm cosplaying Fionna (Adventure Time), Urusla (the Little Mermaid), and Burlesque Hulk (For the Dance, it just happened). I'm also getting to meet a good online friend of mine for the first time. And we are going to sit down and hash out working with Generations of Art.

Which is another thing I am super excited for. Because there is a strong possibility we will be making a living making costumes and selling them at cons which is incredibly exciting. GoA is where we got the gorgeous corsets for our wedding, as well as various costumes corsets we have worn.

So that is very exciting.

And then is Denver Comic Con which I have been making tons of Mucha style geek prints for. And is also very exciting. 

Annnnd last but way not least, my aunt from Australia is coming to So Cal this summer. And since that doesn't happen often I rearranged plans to go out there. At first I was sorta bummed because I have been to So Cal dozens of times. Then I talked to Be and Sarah (And eventually my mom and Molly and maybe Ki) and we decided to all go. And go to Disneyland. And camp. At least one night on this stretch of beach right here.

So yeah. Excited.

So I keep wanting to keep up my journal, and I keep thinking about it, so here it goes!

A brief over view of the year since my last post...six months ago. Uh.

I have started a tattoo apprenticeship, and I am loving it. It is the first thing in a long time that is like YES THIS. I mean comics are like that, but I can't survive off of them. And I'm good at it, I have all my gear and a really awesome, laid back teacher (my friend Amanda's cousin), and everything is just going really well with it. Amanda is also learning to pierce, and we are talking about, with some of the other girls, opening up a pin-up themes tattoo parlor, where all the employees have pin-up personas (Bunny the Atomic Girl here) that is just very open and friendly to everyone. 

And we can sell comics and art prints in the front and it'll be amazing. But it's also some years off. Still, the idea of working at a job I really love, doing art, and being able to live off it...yeah I'm pretty excited.

Speaking of art, Fae X has been quiet. Quietly planning. Because of the wedding, and Sarah's health, we sorta put it on the back burner, because we didn't really wanna half ass shit. But we are getting back into the swing of things. We are reformatting Forteanaville, just into a different publishing style (Because buying a chapter for $5 just didn't seem to be working) We are going to release it in novellas, and possibly but the chapters up for free/cheap on Amazon for digital download. And Helion is kicking back into steam as well,

In addition, we are slowly developing a new series about post apocalyptic liquidators (for those not feeling linky, people who went in and cleaned up nuclear radiation, particularly after Chernobyl) in the future, after a war with an alien race. It's cool, trust me. But won't see the light of day for a few years.

Just in general, I have become like a walking encyclopedia on radiation. It's...sorta weird. But awesome? IDK.

I'm almost done with school. Hopefully next semester. Knock on wood. It's still...school. I got nothin. 

Still into hunger games. Now also into Adventure time. Probably also into a few other things again. Also Supernatural got good again, so into that. I was really worried there.

The trend of toxic people being gone in wonderful ways continued. Got rid of one nasty thorn in my side, that I hadn't realized I had gotten use to the toxic nature of. I really, truly...you see those motivational things all the time that are let...don't let people be around you who don't deserve it and man, I cannot expound that wisdom enough. I use to cling to people no matter how bad the relationship was because I was so scared of being alone and the grief it caused....blows my mind.

And I am almost at 2 years of living with Sarah and my wife, and everything is wonderful.


Oh yeah.



We got married on 10/19 in Central Park, and it was gorgeous. And then we had an awesome reception. And I love being married to Be, she is the love of my life. Here are some pictures:

(my favorite)

All of the above are from my bridesmaid (and oldest friend) Holli G.

And us at our reception!

How are the kids?

No I haven't been updating much and I'm sorry. Lately I have been:

-finishing this semester of school.
-rereading the Hunger Games, playing at [community profile] thegames, nursing a giant crush on Josh Hutcherson, generally being a big Hunger Games fan. I never reread books. Like...ever. I consider it general a waste in a world with so many books I want to read. Sometimes I'll reread parts, rarely I'll reread whole books if it's been years. I totally turned around and reread these suckers as soon as I was done with them.
-loving the avengers, like everyone else.
-doing SHIT TONS of fae x stuff. Denver Comic Con is in a few weeks, and we have #1 of helion and forteanaville done and a sketch book. Plus chibwees soon.
-also helping with 2 of my BFFs Paul and Amanda's wedding, which I am a bridesmaid for.
-reading the new dark tower book, Wind Through the Keyhole. Very good and a good place to start if you wanna try out the Dark Tower but aren't sure about committing to 7 books.
-watching be and sarah plays a lot of mass effect
-being social again and seeing all my lovelies.

So there's that.

Me and be and Sarah have been living together for a year.

It has been awesome. We have not had one serious fight. Our apartment is super cool. We always get along. It is just...like amazingly as awesome as living with your best friend should be but never seems to be. But this is. We are magic, idk. I think really awesome people can live together and it can not work, so it is really impressive that we do work together.

It is just super happy making.

It has also almost been a year since we broke up with stupid face. Which...is also super happy making. I dunno how I was so brain washed in that relationship, but man is it awesome to not be made unhappy all the time by such a thoughtless, negative person.

So he is to the last awesome year and to more awesome to come!
