I cannot BELIEVE I almost went to bed without making this week's journal, especially since I was looking forward to this journal for a while. Happy First of August! Good God, July flew by like that!
First and foremost- it's the thundercrack carnival on flight rising. hooray~! I can't help but feel i'm most active during the holiday weeks on FR. It certainly gives me a reason to grind and level up my permanent dragons. Speaking of which, more than a fourth of all my permanent dragons are max level! (though to be honest I only have 59 permanents and 16 are max, so this barely counts). I also hatched out two fan dragons of mine this week after waiting two months for both pairs of parents to get it right. Now they just got to grow up so I can cover them with clothes~
Yesterday I finished a 50 day art challenge! It feels weird not to be drawing every day now, so I'm going to try to start drawing more, even if it's just doodles and practice. I won't be putting all of it here on DA or anywhere for that matter, but I'll try to get back to more serious art. (it feels really weird looking at my latest deviation which was posted back in may, even though I know I've been drawing almost daily since then). I plan to draw dragons. Lots of dragons. Mostly for the bios of my 59 permanent dragons on FR. Brace yourselves.
On Thursday thelastperformer
and I climbed Enchanted Rock
and became official Disney princesses. Because it's enchanted. And although it's technically all one rock, Enchanted Rock has three distinct hills. Most people just climb the main hill (which is also the tallest), but there are absolutely no rules against exploring the other two. Sure there are no paths, but the truth is, there are no real trails at all when hiking up Enchanted Rock. More or less, you will scramble up one way and pick your way down an entirely different route. Being the lovable idiot and restless adventurer I am, I dragged thelastperformer with me to climb the second hill. It was exhausting and I probably almost led us to our deaths on our first attempt down, but it was an exciting adventure none the less. After that we wondered around the local town for a while. We found a store called Dogologie. It's amazing.
Homestuck has entered it's omega pause, which is mostlikely going to be the last pause before the comic finishes. I thought I was ready for this. I thought I was mentally and emotionally prepared for it to end, but clearly I'm not.
Speaking of homestuck, the t-shirt design contest over on welovefine ends in two days! It'll probably be a few more before voting opens up, so keep an eye out!
Our power went out for about an hour last night. It was so hot I couldn't sleep, and with no white noise of my fan to fill my ears, I could hear some jerk blasting his car radio in the street for a good 30 minutes straight. At 9:30 at night
. I don't care if most people don't consider that "late". It's disrespectful at any hour, really.
With this my summer vaccation is officially 3/4ths over. It has kind of felt like it's been winding down now for a while, but I am kind of excited about going back to school. I want to see my college friends one last time before I join the work force.
