No new artwork today. I had hoped to get my business cards designed and uploaded this week; there's a couple of different designs I've been puttering with, and I'd appreciate another view/opinion on them. But I've just been feeling rather flattened, and we're leaving town early early tomorrow. So I will try to get those up next week.

In scholastic news, I received an invitation to join Phi Theta Kappa, an honor society for students attending 2 year colleges. The registration fee is a bit hefty, but membership opens up eligibility for scholarships and grants that aren't available otherwise. Exciting stuff, considering I was a rather lackluster student in high school.

Unfortunately, I don't have a whole lot to post about today. My health is being a problem again; I won't post the gory details... suffice to say I'm really tired of a chronic problem that just will not go away, and doctors seem unwilling to do anything about. (This is not an invitation to talk about the state of healthcare in the US. Really.)

Anyway, I have my favorite class today, tonight we'll have dinner with [livejournal.com profile] linnaeus and drop off el doggie with him (She goes to see Uncle Paul sometimes when we travel), and then far far too early tomorrow, we'll be off to MKE to fly to Boston. I'll probably post something from the trip, either here or on twitter.

Have a great weekend folks. :)

Home from Anthrocon - We made excellent time on both legs of the trip, and it was overall a very good trip. [livejournal.com profile] roho is excellent traveling company (indeed, excellent company all around), and we giggled at each other through most of the trip.

Got to meet some long-admired artists, and more than that, I kept finding them in our room! Was most excellent to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] ninjahijinx outside of the business transaction setting, and I believe that Louvelex has the most adorable fursuit ever.

Today's agenda is liberating the fluffernutter from the kennel, then maybe working on pencils from some of my takehome work from the con. I have alot of painting to do, I'll be busy for the rest of the summer, I think. Good times.

Home at last. Very tired. Had a good holiday... was awkward in spots, and there are things I'm still chewing on. More of an update later.

I am apparently now a twit. I signed up for Twitter, so if you'd like to get the short little updates (or if I watched you and you have no idea who I am), I'm cheekitty there, as 'genet' was taken.

I will not be dumping tweets to my LJ, sorry guys. :)

We're probably going to be heading home from Boston today. We want to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] shadowstalkerw for lunch, and spend a little time visiting with him, then we'll hit the road.

Yeah, know how I said I hoped we'd get nice weather? HA.

9.5 HOURS of blizzard. I have never seen a storm that could stretch from Rochester to Boston. :P

We're safe in Boston, ensconced in a cozy apartment watching traffic go by that does not include us.

'The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful...'

Apparently we left the Chicagoland area just in time! We're on our way east to Boston for the holidays, and I just checked our local forcast. -7 (-34 with windchill) and snow for the next 3 days. Yikes, I'm glad we're on the road!

Buffalo was surprisingly clear for once, and we ended up stopping for the night in Rochester. We should hit Boston early this afternoon, and have plans for dinner with friends. Hoping for good weather!

With MFF coming up, this article is well timed.

Visiting Chicago? Read on! )

I just want to clarify my last entry.

Friends aren't really what's stressing me out. My job is stressing me out. There's a lot going on there right now, with deeper political currents that I really don't want to get caught up in.

On top of that, we have the trip, and two other fairly major events that I can't talk about yet. They're all good- but for someone like me, there's a lot of associated anxiety.

Digging stuff up from the past isn't a bad thing- old wounds have to be reopened sometimes so they can heal properly.

So yeah. I'm okay. :) Art is actually not something that's been stressing me. I did a stunning bookmark as a gift for Zephyr (still working on it!), finished Lanakila's commission in a way that I am VERY pleased with, and have enough time to do another painting (maybe) before the con.

I've also been fiddling around with other styles, taking what works for me and integrating it into my own way of doing things. I have a really cute piece of that I need to scan...

I think I've given up on the idea of doing any sort of sales at AC. I don't want to stress out about getting up and getting down to Artist's Alley, and especially since I don't have any sort of prints available, it's just gonna be better for me to veg and harass friends. (And yes, Kevin, this means you. So nyeah.)

Lots of wonderful opportunities are happening this year, they're just... stressful. :)

So yeah. If I seem quiet online, I am fine! Honest! I'm just recharging in a quiet kinda way. :)

You're not allowed to worry. Nuh uh!
