So I did finish NaNo! I won November 16th, and I'm still working on it. Turns out 50k words wasn't near enough haha. But my goal was accomplished and that's what matters to me! Maybe someday I'll polish it up and get it published.
I saw the new Star Wars and it was pretty good. That's all I really have to say without spoilers. It certainly wasn't the best movie I've ever seen, and some of the acting really could have been polished (for example the personalities of the characters were not at all solid, one minute they'd do something badass and the next turn into whiny brats), but all in all it was okay and I enjoyed it.
I'm currently housesitting for a friend and taking care of his cats. Which is wonderful because I adore cats and don't have any of my own. The only downside is, I'm really sick with a nasty cold (thanks coworkers for harboring the sickness and passing it on), so my coughing hasn't been very pleasing to them lol. Speaking of being sick, all of my coworkers have been sick on and off for the past like four months, but still come in anyway. I hadn't caught it, so I was starting to get cocky and think I was safe. ...Obviously, I was not. T_T When I came in for my after-Christmas shift literally everyone in the store was terribly sick. So I guess it manifested all at the same time. I lost my voice completely so my coworkers tried to help out and let me organize and clean the store while they dealt with most of the customers. Eventually I got it back, so I was able to work properly at the end of my shift. It was pretty funny though, even if it was miserable in parts because I couldn't stop coughing.
Oh yeah, and I graduated in August. I'm excited to move on in my career and it should be pretty fun.
As for everything else, I'm still dolling. I dabble in tooling for fun nowadays, but still usually do pixel work. I'm still writing, but most of my stuff is anonymous kinkmeme writing, so it usually doesn't get publicly put anywhere unless I save it and actually remember to put it up at my AO3 account. The original stuff I share with very, very few people and prefer it that way. Not sure what else to say on that front. I occasionally crochet but I've been at work every day except for the past few days and Christmas so have had zero time for any of my hobbies (it was mostly eat, work, sleep for a while there).
I think the most awkward moment I had lately is when one of my ex's friends came into the store looking to buy a present for him. Of course I knew what he'd liked when I'd known him and helped where I could, but hearing about him wasn't that fun. He's one of the rare relationships I've had that ended terribly and we aren't friends at all because of it (where usually I am friends with my exes), and I was particularly moody after that. I hope he likes his present anyway, he doesn't need to know it was my suggestion. *eye roll*. On the other hand, I saw my adopted brother, sister in law and one of my other exes. I'm actually friends with him, so it was pretty nice to have a few minutes to talk to them all and catch up.
I think that's pretty much it. I'm around every once in a while to answer messages and maybe put a thing or two up, but otherwise life has just been busy and I'm doing my thing. Hope you are all well. ♥ Thanks for all the faves and watches, I do appreciate it.
