It’s been five months since I last did one of these posts! Geez! Sticking with my plan to make this place whatever I want, as well as more personal posts and less ‘content’, here is a chatty post about what I’m currently up to this month.
Watching: My partner and I just finished up The OA, and while it was super strange I really enjoyed it. It’s certainly not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, and it’s also got it’s flaws (what doesn’t?) but overall, I was captivated by it.
Reading: A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab. Book 3 in the Darker Shade of Magic series. LOVING IT SO MUCH. Full review of the trilogy to come.
Playing: Horizon Zero Dawn. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s a gorgeous game, and the game play could not be more up my ally. Aloy is my stealth bow-sniper goddess. I’m also just about to beat FFXV but I’m putting it off as sadly, this game has gone really downhill in terms of it’s story and characters. Color me unimpressed.
Listening: A mix of podcasts and music. I stream music while I live stream my art on Twitch (more about this in Thursday’s post!) and on non-stream days I attempt to keep up with podcasts.
Making: Lots of art, as usual. I’ve started a Women I Admire series in my sketchbook. Once a week I sketch up a portrait of a lady I admire, be it someone I personally know, know from online, or a celebrity. I’m streaming these on Twitch, and really enjoying getting to be a bit more loose with them since this is a sketchbook series. I’m also continuing my Zodiac Portrait series with work on Scorpio, and doing some fanart in between just for fun! There’ll be a post soon with my latest artwork, I just haven’t put it together yet.
Feeling: Hmmm, back and forth between just fine and anxious. Most days are okay, but as our trip to Costa Rica creeps closer (just about ONE MONTH until we leave!) I am definitely getting hit with bouts of anxiety about the travel aspect. I haven’t traveled much in general, especially with my kiddo, and I’m a little stressed about it.
Planning: Summer hiking trips. Last summer was a record low for hiking trips due to some personal things taking precedence in life, and I want to make up for it this year! I’m putting together some lists of trails in NH that I think my kiddo will be able to complete. Now if only the snow would disappear.
Loving: Warm temperatures. My best friend getting a new house. Streaming my art. Family weekends. Horizon Zero Dawn. A little break from commission work. My kiddo reading like a freaking champ. More hours of sunshine in the evening.
How has your March been?
