I haven't updated in a while, so here's a journal for you! I just got back from the Chuckanut Writer's Conference and I'm feeling super inspired! I'm still in school and taking classes summer quarter (Philosophy 101 and Intro To Communication). I'm so happy because I've been getting straight-As so far in every class, and also found an amazing group of friends in the form of Whatcom QSA (Queer Straight Alliance--yay, same-sex marriage!), Writer's Club and the unofficial Witches' Club. As you might imagine I am super busy all the time, which is exactly how I like to be.
My knees have been doing better, but still giving me problems off-and-on; I use the elevators at school and have a massive rolling backpack that makes far too much noise in the tiled hallways. I made friends with another veteran at school named Daniel, who is blind and served in Afghanistan. I have gained way more weight than I care to admit by eating school food (which I recently discovered is even more expensive than twice the same amount of food in organic non-GMO form from Haggen). I've been walking about 2-3 miles and doing physical therapy every day, but I need to start eating better and doing more serious excercise.
I have become addicted to an amazing webcomic called Stand Still Stay Silent, which takes place in Scandinavia 90 years after an epidemic wipes out most of the human race (and has cats! ) I also am still reading Girl Genius and working up the courage to make some fanart, which I really want to but am super embarassed by. XD I need to make more of my own stuff and not get lost down this fanart rabbithole...
Also, I am finally out to my family as androgynous and asexual. My stepdad is being an ass about it but my mom is trying really hard to understand and my sister has been incredibly supportive. (For those of you who weren't in on this already, congrats! Now you know. )
