kol: (Blah blah blah)
I am feeling very fragile as of late, as if I am on the edge of a precipice, getting ready to jump off into the unknown which may be better than this rock I'm clinging too... or it could be much, much worse. Things are not helped by the rabidly escalating sickness I came down with in the middle of the convention-- for everyone else it was a simple cold, but the six or seven days I worked in a row before the convention killed my immune system, and this minor cold went right for the lungs. I'm trying very hard not to let it further fester into a COPD attack, but judging by how low oxygen I was at work today, I have a good chance of facing April sick. Which makes me glad my golden birthday isn't until the end of the month :D. 

The steampunk convention itself was very fun. It was lovely to see Fyre again (although I doubt I stopped talking the entire time ;___;) and I saw a Hawaiian Dalek, which I don't think is a costume anyone at Fanime can top. I did not shop at the dealers rooms or go to any panels, but I don't feel as connected to steampunk as I do the offerings at Fanime, so I really felt no loss there.

And my tax monies came in this weekend, so I can finally begin gathering materials for my Twelve Kingdoms cosplay. I will probably be purchasing a wig next week *__*. 

Progress Notes
  • Completed the rough first draft of She Walks The Stars Reborn. Which is apparently a drabble in eight parts? 
  • 101 words of Deadline At First Light.
  • Survived a six hour shift :D
  • Scribbled down more of the final Coffee Log post at work. Should have the finished post up before the end of the month! 
  • Just turned in my time off request for Fanime <3. So excited to see Charis and Pixie, and to finally meet K!!! WE WILL HAVE THE BEST OF TIMES! Plus, I'm totally bringing the awesome kettle so THE TEA WILL NOT BE DENIED!
kol: (Note To Self)
Ever After is on! Oh how I adore everything this movie choses to be! And I am entirely too amused that when I paused the movie to begin this entry, Henry's codpiece is taking up a fair portion of the screen XD. Life's not-so-little amusements <3.  

Progress Notes:
  • 980 words on She Walks The Stars Reborn (Unbirthday drabble #1)
  • 1 Venti Chai Latte and 1 Cup of Chai Latte
  • (9 hour work shift)
  • Third day of No-Soda-For-Kol
  • Possibly successfully plotted out how to finish Coffee Log!!!
And the solution for the last was, as always, oh so apparent once I stopped freaking out about how I can't write and thought about what made sense for the narrative. Oh writer brain, how nice it is to see you again :D

I have to say, a part of me has always been convinced I can't write without soda or sugar. But yesterday night and today has proved that dude, you can do this.  
kol: (All cleaned up)
I think I met a lot of my goals this month, especially considering the depression and the computer crash. I lost all of my pictures. Not only did I rediscover foodporn settings on my camera, but I took quite a few landscape photos, neighborhood shots, and did lots of shots while on vacation.Pictures of Carmel, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and around Kolsbeckistan. Also, birthday bundtinis!!!! )

March Goal: Santana Row, Rose garden, possibly the nunnery. *___*

Art & Sketches

6! That's right, one more than last month! Clover & Reed, a couple Neves, and a few chibi's from the Cloudnin AU. )

March Goal: STILL need to do a series of sketches to regain my ability to draw Neve and Mara's faces without references once more.

RP Tags, Fanfiction & Drabbles

I did not do as much this month as I had hoped, but considering I lost so much when my harddrive crashed at the beginning of the month and mood was seriously down due to a bunch of things, I'm not going to beat myself up. I've had a few good posts the last month, I just have to be more consistent about getting them out.

Killer in Me
The Fandom: ANCD's Cloudnin AU
Subject: Dee & Galen
Comments: This is a rough draft, but I fricking love where this drabble is going. *___* I've been having a problem getting back into the drabble side of writing, and this proved that I can still get there.

March Goal: My monthly average will be 2 tags a week and 1 drabble a week. Will reach this goal!!!
