It’s the last Monday in Halloween, and I’ve got some Jekyll and Hyde for you. Enjoy~Week 34
Last week it was witches and vampires. This week, it’s zombies. Have I mentioned how much I love October yet? Just a couple more weeks til Halloween~ 🎃💖🎃Week 33
What’s October without a witch or two? And of course vampires…(See, I told you I’ll be switching it up~)Week 32
Get used to seeing these guys every
OctoberVIXXtober. Don’t worry though, I’ll be mixing it up a bit throughout the month 😉😉😉
This one is bittersweet for me. Three of the members of this group were completing their military service and a fourth has left the group for…reasons. One of the remaining members, Ravi, was supposed to tour the US this year, but the concerts kept getting pushed back because of COVID and was cancelled altogether a couple weeks ago. It’s just a mess, but I love this song, it’s got a good story to it, and it’s got cyborgs, so it definitely falls under the sci-fi theme for the month. Enjoy! (Or don’t, but I mean, at least give it a chance…)Week 30
So apparently I’ve decided that September is Sci-fi month. This week is Starset’s “Bringing It Down.”
One of my favorite things about Starset (besides the music, itself), are the stories they weave in their videos. They have an over-all story arc and then they have these side stories that have nothing to do with the original, but are still great all on their own. I won’t spoil the story for this one. Just make sure to watch all the way through.Week 29
This week, we’re hoping across a couple ponds, over to Japan. J-rock singer, Gackt, has done a couple songs/videos with sci-fi themes. This one, “月の歌 / Tsuki no Uta” (Moon Song/Song of the Moon), is a personal favorite. I just wish I was able to find a better quality version of the video…Week 28
So. It occurs to me, that I did not do an “end of year” review type post. Honestly though, I don’t really have anything to write about for this year. It was 2017 when all the “important” crap happened. The tumor behind my eye was discovered and removed. Sis’ skin cancer was discovered and removed. The first full year without my brother-in-law. Everything and anything happened that year.
This past year…the only thing of any note was that my vision has improved. Oh, and I finally received my first rejection letter (which, considering the publishing house in question, I expected). I got to visit my family in Arkansas, and introduced my sister to filters. We found a graveyard from the 1800s, and it turns out, most of the people in it are related to us. I introduced my niece to Doctor Who, and she binge-watched it within about two months? Something like that. She completely devoured the show, and is now a dedicated Whovian. I rediscovered my love for VIXX, and decided to give learning Korean a try (spoiler alert: the alphabet is like, a million times easier than Japanese, but pronouncing it is a bitch).
I found my writing tribe, participated in Twitter author events. Made it through an entire summer without a single tornado warning (!!!), and missed out on Trick or Treating with the kids because they both decided to act like first-rate jerks. Added a minor to my degree (I am now minoring in Social Sciences), and am starting my senior year of college. Had two scary instances with our doggo (see the skunk incident and the brownie thief incident), and two with two of my aunts (and they say bad things come in threes…).
I won the award for favorite aunt this Christmas, when I gave my niece a laptop, and my roommates got me gifts very fitting for a writer of sci-fi and fantasy.
One of my roommates is now working at the same place as me, and the other is annoyed with me for buying her stuff for Christmas and her birthday (her birthday’s the 28th).
Funny story there, actually. Our family is a Batman family. We have Batman; his wife, Alfred; I’m Nightwing; and the kids are Batgirl and Robin. Well, everyone had to work on Alfred’s birthday. Batman was working 6am-4pm, I was working 5pm-9pm, and Alfred was working 9am-6pm. Since there wasn’t going to be a time where we would all be together (the kids go to bed before 9), we decided to give Alfred her presents the night before. I knew she was going to be mad at me for one of the presents I had for her, so I gave her the two I knew she wouldn’t mind too much, and then waited. On her birthday, I left her last present on her desk before I left for work (remember, there was an hour gap between when I went to work, and when would be getting off). I got to work…and waited for her reaction.
So yeah, it’s been an interesting year, but not one to really look back on and go “oh yeah, that was crazy…”
I’m honestly not sure if I’m hoping for an eventful 2019 or not…
Just a heads up that there will not be an installment of “Don’t Feed the Trolls” this week. My university is online, but we still have finals. The professor for one class has given all of us an extension on the ones due for her class, but that’s not the only class I’m in, and my eye has been blurring more than usual (oh joy), which severely hampers my ability to write. Hopefully next week will be back to normal.
