Okay so naturally, like anyone else, the year he some good and bad points. I’ve shared some of mine, some of which I still am having trouble getting over or past. Still. It wasn’t all bad.
Friends days out from January to December; going back to old fandoms and old (and new) movies (Veggietales!!!); Friends doing better in work after having a hard time of it; the plants maintained and thriving; friends married; jobs obtained and managing with healthy work relationships.
New fandoms, old fandoms, Animarket convention (brother’s first con!) lots of D&D, comics, and of course Harry Potter. Lots of creating and crafting. Some new recipes. Less crochet but I made a couple bags with zips! So progress, even if I’m stalling.
Sign language! 🤓🤓 TTSL level 1 course attended, but not graded 😐😐 I still practice tho.
Now we get into it.
Of course, after all of that, remember the one challenge I set out to complete this year? The reading challenge. It’s been my tablet background all year. Sad to say, I’ve only completed 10 out of a very doable 12. Less sad to say, it’s because other books distracted me 😋
So reading challenge above, what I completed below
Naturally, with Cursed Child coming out it had to be on my list. And comics. Of course. And manga. And lit text books because they’re interesting damn it! I think the only one I really regret is Star Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers because I think I sort of expected a Proto-GotG and got…. Misogynists in Space. Or a parody of it like, ????
So why didn’t I finish the challenge?
Spoiler: it’s all books
1) Harry Potter, because I have to reread it at some point, and I can’t just leave it alone after one. *3
2) Eragon. I’m
finally getting into the series after so very very long. But it’s taking me a while. It’s not a bad series, just, it takes me a while sometimes. *3(+1)
3) The Name of the Wind. I immediately had to read Wise man’s fear. It was necessary. *2
4) comics. I’ve lost track of how many comics I’ve actually read since Hawkeye vs Deadpool , but it’s been quite a lot. Halfway of Deadpool’s collection up to I don’t know when, Hawkeye 2012, Hawkeye 2015,2016, Dark Hawkeye, where it was really Bullseye
spoiler , Young Avengers, while reading Eragon’s last book, I’m also reading Grayson, I read Nightwing, reread Hawkeye vs Deadpool and Hawkeye 2012…
Umm so that’s *?? For comics read
5) yes it’s mostly the comics’ fault.
6) and Harry’s.
7) And maybe Albus Severus’.
Because wtf would you try to make out with your Aunt, and break up Romione- TWICE!!!!
8) He broke Romione
On the upside, I really am looking forward to sourcing more of Patrick Rothfuss’ works, and Kate Bishop is a fairly easy Hawkeye cosplay. And Scorpius is a soft little Marshmallow that deserves happiness
+ A lot actually happened this year. I loved every bit of it. But Books, tho. These always take precedence. Except 50 Shades. Why did I waste another day on this, I don’t know. I’ll blame my friend. Yes. Perfect scapegoat. It’s your fault, dude.
