How are you?

Really, I mean it. How are you? Tell me about your day.

I got the new Story of Seasons game. It’s Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns. The man at Gamestop gave me the tiny stuffed capybara that comes with the pre-order. I didn’t pre-order, but I’m guessing he was flirting with me~ I love my capybara; I named it Gabby.

Thanks for reading. Let me know how your day went in the comments below! And today’s featured picture is a family of capybara’s. I’m almost done with the drawing I’ve been working on, hopefully I’ll post it next time!

A Little Slow on the Draw

It’s funny because it’s in reference to old western shoot outs! Shoot offs? Shoot downs…? You know, where they walk several paces away from each other, then turn and have to draw their gun and shoot. What do you call those?

In any case, I neglected writing for a few days. And drawing! I’ve neglected pretty much everything except for video games and the dishes. I managed to keep washing those, so I’m proud of myself for that. Still have laundry mountain waiting for me in the bedroom. Must fold those at some point. Unfortunately, and fortunately, I have events tomorrow! So I won’t be able to do chores, but I will be able to make money! Woo!!

We took a break from Assassin’s Creed Syndicate for a few days, and I picked up a 3DS game that I had started a few months back. It’s called Story of Seasons. It was made by a few of the same people who made Harvest Moon, I believe! Maybe I should research that information before I write about it… Well, anyway, it was made by a company called xSeed. The formula for the game is very similar to Harvest Moon. You get a farm, you grow crops, you befriend the townspeople, and woo a bachelor or bachelorette of your choice. In the original Harvest Moons, you can only play as a male character. But in later games, they begin appealing to their female fans and give you the option of playing as a girl or a boy, adding bachelors to the games. In Story of Seasons, there is a wonderful selection of both bachelors and bachelorettes to choose from, all of whom have backstory, cut scenes, and engaging dialogue that make it easy for you to fall head over heels for them.

I had a difficult time choosing between the six possible bachelors. In the end, I decided to choose the one who reminded me most of my husband.

This is Klaus. He makes perfume. Those aren’t the attributes that remind me of my husband, they’re just facts about him.
Klaus is the oldest of the bachelors, and they remark on the age gap between the player’s character and Klaus regularly throughout the courtship. My husband is seven years older than me. I’ve never really noticed the age gap, or even felt odd about it, with my husband. Other men that I’ve dated who were older, though, it was very clear and I always felt like a child around them. My loving husband never makes me feel that way and it’s always been something I was grateful for.
Another similarity is based on some of the dialogue. Because Klaus is older, he’s also more worldly and knows more about life than the player’s character. One of my favorite cut scenes in the game is with Klaus, where the player goes to visit him in his house. When asked why, the player can respond with “I just wanted to talk to you.” Which is so sweet and innocent, it makes Klaus blush. He points out that you shouldn’t be so innocent, because you never know when there will be a “big bad wolf” lurking about. Of course, the player’s character is oblivious to the meaning, but we all know he wants to eat you up~
There are many more similarities in the courtship that remind me of my husband, but I’ll spare you the details. Just know that I love Story of Seasons and I’m looking forward to playing the next iteration of the game, Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns. So excited for that.

No drawing today either, so sorry. I’m going to go work on drawing now though! Hopefully, I’ll have something for you by Sunday.

And as always, if you’d like me to check out your blog, or just give me tips on how to write a better blog, leave a note in the comments! Thanks so much!

Killing Time – Literally

I’m thinking all of my post titles will be puns. It seems that it’s going that way.
So I didn’t post yesterday, and I’m sad about that because I like writing a blog! It’s fun. As for the reason I didn’t post; it’s because I was so busy playing Assassin’s Creed Syndicateac-syndicate-helix-credits-rewards

Super cool game so far! I’m really enjoying it. There are two main playable characters. A couple of badass assassins, who also happen to be brother and sister! You can switch between the two characters at any point during the game (except while you’re on a train, balancing on something, or in a character specific quest), so my husband and I take turns playing the quests. We spent the whole day with it, yesterday.

I don’t play a lot of games, but I do watch other people play games, my husband and various Youtubers, so I feel I have the right to confidently say that this game is worth playing. It’s immersive, interesting, and tons of fun. Not to mention that it is visually breathtaking. I’ve always though that the Assassin’s Creed games were gorgeous, and this one is no different. 10/10 catbeans will agree~

I won’t be able to post this weekend, as I will be out of town! But when I get back, I’ll tell you all about it~
I have an event tonight where I will be performing with fire, so hopefully I’ll get some pictures to share. In any case, I’ll be back hopefully Sunday night. Until then, my sweet~!

P.S. No drawing today. I’ll post some when I get back! Here’s the start screen of the game I’m playing~

Knife To See You

It’s a pun!

So today, I finally finished flicking all the acorns out from between the floorboards of a deck. You have to have something that will fit between the boards, as well as be able to cut some of the debris to help dislodge it. I was using a paring knife. Small, ergonomic, efficient.
Well, after roughly five hours of being hunched over, I was almost finished with this exhausting project. All I had to do was finish up the stairs. I was working on the second to last stair, and I sat up, stretching my back with a groan. As I looked out towards the street that the house faced, I noticed a sweet old woman power walking with her headphones on. She gave me a friendly wave, and I waved back in return. Her expression immediately dropped and she hurried off, keeping her eyes down. I didn’t know why she had such a reaction, until I realized that I had just waved at her with a knife.

TL;DR – I waved at an old lady with a knife.

After I got home, I made more business calls and now I have a fire performance this weekend! Yay!!
Thanks for reading~ As always, if you have tips, or would like me to read your blog, leave a comment below.

P.S. My drawing today is a cat-squirrel thing. Unrelated to my last post. Enjoy!

squirellstatuecomic

Today I saw a squirrel hanging out with a squirrel statue. I couldn’t get a photo, so I drew it.

One a side note, I was very productive today. So proud of me~ Here’s a list of things I did!

  • I did some physical labor flicking acorns out from between the pieces of wood on a deck. I made money doing that, so that means I’m a Professional Acorn Flicker.
  • When I got home I cleaned both bathrooms (That’s right, I have two) and the kitchen.
  • Then I made business calls. And some emails!
  • After that, I exercised a little and then I drew that picture up there. Pretty cool huh?

That’s all for now~ I hope you enjoyed this post. Or at least my doodle. Thanks for reading!
And if you have any tips, or would like me to read your blog please leave a comment down below! I’ll totally check it out~ ^^

My Very First Blog (D’awww~ How Cute~)

I have never written a blog before in my life. You will soon find that to be painfully obvious as I continue writing.

One of my biggest problems is that I never finish things, or follow through with plans that I make, and I want to change that. One way is to be held accountable for your actions, or at least, for what you say you’re going to do. And what better way to be held accountable than by posting it publicly for all of the world to see and judge you if you fail!

A little bit about me…

  • I’m a professional entertainer (not a stripper) I go to children’s birthday parties, festivals, corporate events, etc. and paint faces, juggle, make balloon animals. Whatever they want. I can also walk on stilts and perform with fire.
  • I’m an aspiring artist. I only started about a year ago, and I’ve still got a lot to learn, but I’m hoping that writing a blog, where I intend to share my drawings, will help me improve even more.
  • I’m super lazy. Like, holy shit. I’ll take all the responsibility and blame for my laziness. It really needs to stop. I’m dying.

That seems good enough for learning about me. You’ll learn more later if you stick around.

So, I’m hoping to start posting cute little comic strips and stuff. You know, you’ve probably seen some of the popular ones on Facebook or Twitter. They’re simple, cute, and you can relate to them. I have things I want to draw comics about. I’ll do that probably. Still lazy.

Forgive me, this post wasn’t informative, or funny, or helpful…or anything that a blog post is supposed to be…though perhaps I should start reading other blogs so I can get an idea of what they’re supposed to be. If you have a blog, and would like me to read it, please send me a link in the comments. I’ll check it out. Pinky swear. Or if you don’t have a blog, feel free to give me some tips on what you’d like me to write about~

Thanks for reading. Until next time~

P.S. The featured picture is something I drew for Valentine’s Day. So…that’s relevant. Enjoy~
