Hey there guys! Yes, I'm aware I didn't do any updates for July. There was too much going on for me to really make anything solid for writing and I was very distracted. Plus, due to everything going on, any update I'd given might have been null and void the next day anyway. So, here we are!
Real Life: I'm a resident of Wisconsin now. I moved on the 9th, finally getting out of my abusive situation with my mother and her fiance. I had a GoFundMe up for just shy of a month and managed to raise (both online and offline) just over $1,000. If you want to know the details or would like to help, since I can't get certain kinds of help until I've been a resident for half a year, you can follow this link: www.gofundme.com/brittsescape
Even if you can't donate, a simple share is great.
Quit my job after being with that family for over a decade. I've known them since I was little. It hurt to leave, but I needed to go. I am currently unemployed, but we'll see what happens in the coming weeks. I might have a nannying job lined up if the mother can get her shit together, but if I don't hear back within a week from my weekend out, I will be job hunting, since I don't plan on waiting around.
I'm walking distance from my partner, Velocity, now. It's been amazing seeing them every day this week and, even better, waking up next to them. I'm still getting used to it and it still feels strange, having been long distance for all 4 years of our relationship. I wouldn't be where I am without them. Velocity helped the move happen and found me a way to get out. It's been a bumpy ride, but we've made it this far and I'm excited to start this new chapter with them, so close to living together but not quite. It's been talked about, but we're trying not to put our carriage before the horses.
Cons: Geek.Kon is this upcoming weekend and, as per usual, there's nothing really going on for panels and such. The one I was on got declined, so I'm hella free. Really the biggest things going on for me are the ball, a private Tiger & Bunny shoot and I will be going to the Digimon panel come hell or high water (I always seem to miss them no matter which con or who is running it).
Might be doing Daisho, now that I live so close. But if I do, it will likely only be for Saturday and not even the whole day.
Cosplay: I did Tomoe for a birthday Tiger & Bunny thing last month and it was so much fun! I'm cosplaying her for the ball while Velocity borrows some of my things for Kotetsu, with Raine going as Kaede. Finishing the final touches on Yamato and Kevin, the former of which may or may not be done in time. Otherwise I'm still in the process of finishing Blake and Makoto. Houndour and Mary have been put on hold because of the move. Meika is fixing up the Austria cosplay I ended up getting in such poor condition/make. Leon needs a new spellbook and I really need to get going on styling his new wig.
Art: Still not anything on the drawing front. But some of you may have noticed some of the Hetalia fics got updated. I will go back and forth with those as I try to power my way through my next chapter to Wishful Thinking. Just like my drawing, I know what I want, I just can't seem to produce the results to get there.
Might work on a joint fanfic project with Velocity, an AU we made up by pure accident based on my situation prior to moving. I will be doing the writing, Velocity will be editing. It will be mainly Yuri x Kotetsu with Barnaby x Kotetsu in later chapters. Not sure what the title will be if we do go through with it. And I still have my other stories I haven't started yet, GAH!!!
