October, the month of spooky, scary things. It was an okay month; I did find myself flailing around at so many good things and crying over how much I spent on comic related stuff (per usual). It was also quite devastating because of the Santa Rosa fires that destroyed so many homes and the air quality being shit. I just hope November’s a better month—hopefully better than last year’s.
September started off with a heatwave that was choking my lovely city to death. It was truly awful. I’ve been stressing about another pest situation. But hey, I did meet two of my favorite people—Robin Sloan and Kris Anka—and got my comic pins (and a lot of comics hahahahaha)!!!
August had its ups and its down. This month was especially hard since it was the anniversary of my dad’s passing, and we had to deal with a bunch of other annoying things that happened. I wish to have a solidly good month.
July hasn’t been that great of a month. At work, you can feel it in the air that people just want to quit. (Which I’m sad about but they gotta do what makes them happy.) In my personal life, I’m super stressed about by my little sister (she’s a big spender), goddamn pests that strikes fear in my heart, and my five year old iPod touch broke. :((
And although it’s been kind of awful, not awful things include EVERYTHING COMIC RELATED!!
I can’t believe it’s Summer.Ugh.
June flew like a blur, and I don’t know if I’m ready for the end of the Summer or what.
In June —
- I met Brenden Fletcher (again) and Babs Tarr!!
S C R E A M I N G. For those who do not know, Brenden Fletcher and Babs Tarr (and Cameron Stewart but he unfortunately was unable to make it) is the creative team behind Batgirl and their new book, Motor Crush. I’ve been a massive fan of them since their Batgirl days, so when I heard they would be signing at my LCBS, I made sure I had the day off to see them! (Like, I bought five different covers for Motor Crush. That’s how much I love them.)
I may do an event recap for it, but there was a Q&A where Brenden and Babs talked about Motor Crush—its inception, the inspiration behind the fashion and certain scenes, etc—and then a signing took place after. It was my first time meeting Babs, and oh my god, she is amazinnnnnnng. I literally had hearteyes when I stood in front of her. For Brenden, it was not my first time meeting him, and I was so psyched to meet him again (last time he showed me previews of Black Canary #2.) and talked Black Canary with him. I didn’t realize until right before the event that I own A LOT of his work. :D So, here are the lovely two:
May, don’t go! I loved you so much!
I can’t believe May is over! Where did the month go? Can we go back to the beginning of the month or to my birthday please?
In May —
- I celebrated my birthday!
MY BFF WAS FINALLY PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES FOR MY BIRTHDAY! After spending yeaaarrrs away from each other, we got to celebrate my birthday together and what a joy it was! I hung out with a friend earlier in the day for fish tacos + comic hunting, and then I met up with my BFF for Korean BBQ + book hunting. A+++++ outings.
