Listening: Imagine Dragons – Night Visions
Creating: Working on slowly painting and putting together my Archangel because I just picked up my caster (Lylyth the Herald) and need to build her, but dragon pieces were taking up all the space. It looks badass.

Dragon in progress

Feeling: relieved, and actively un-stressing (which can sometimes be a little stressful, but that’s what Imagine Dragons is for). Yesterday, well, actually since the weekend I’ve felt kind of on the verge of a meltdown between feeling generally overwhelmed with life and secret projects and mother’s day (don’t get me started) – it just didn’t let up until I let myself spill to some people. I don’t know why I suddenly (or not so suddenly) have a hard time telling people who I know care and are there for me that I’m feeling kind of depressed and on the verge of a breakdown. For some reason I feel like I need to take that on alone and it’s only after I break my own walls and admit it out loud (or in text) that I begin to feel better and less overwhelmed.
Playing: WoW – I’m almost almost to cap now! I’m over half-way to level 90, and I have entered the Vale of Eternal Blossoms so I’m actually battling level 90 things and earning more XP, which is great. I also found (finally) the alchemy vendor so I can make potions, and the person who you give the motes of harmony to. So I bought some Golden Lotus because you earn 2-3 XP/Skill with those in alchemy instead of just one. My Alchemy is 590-something now, which is exciting.
Watching: Strip Search! It’s become a habit of mine to draw while watching episodes. In that vein, tomorrow (Thursday 5/16) at 11pm EST I’m going to do a live-stream on KieryGeek with a friend and we’re going to do our version of a strip search challenge, so you should watch it. It auto-saves and posts to youtube too, so it’ll be up again after the fact.

warmth

FLEECE!
I have a fleece jacket, it’s soft and warm, and makes me soooo happy. Because now I can go outside with a jacket and I’m not still freezing. I’ve been wearing a track-ish jacket for a few years because it’s small enough to fit under other jackets, but it wasn’t providing quite enough warmth. So we went to old navy on Saturday and I got a warm fleece jacket with built in hand warmers. ^.^ My mood has gone up several notches over the last few days because of it (I like to be warm).
Saturday night we went to a concert with Alex’s family to see Elizabeth Von Trapp (yeah, the sound of music people). I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but her performance was amazing. She’s not a musician you could really sing along to, or with, but what she does with her voice and the words that she chooses in the songs that she writes is something that is more like painting than singing. She’s an illustrator with words and uses her voice like a painter uses a brush. I’ve never seen anything quite like that before, and it was amazing – completely unexpected,  so very artistic and stunning. I couldn’t help but feeling that she’s transcended the world of musicians and crossed a bridge and what she does and how she does it, is art. and it’s lovely.
Yesterday, Alex and I ended up finishing (sort of) a short we came up with the other day, and that was a blast. I love filming with him. We’re only able to do it on nights and weekends, but I love it. It’s fun to get out of our comfort zones and try new things (in the comfort and seclusion of our studio 😉 ) and learn what we’re good at and comfortable with and figure out new things. The longest thing is post-production and adding in things and cutting things together, which I can’t really help with (because it’s all on Alex’s computer) but I love seeing what it’s like at all the stages. ^.^
