Surprise for Christian

Heyo,

Lately I have been busy with work, and too tired to do anything else after. Except finishing a shoe order I had. But this weekend I decided to surprise Christian. He has been really into LP lately, and that band means a lot to him. So he has asked if I could draw Chester bennington for him..So on thursday when I came home from work and saw the ugly rug we have in the hallway (which christian had spilled some orange juice on which left a stain) I started googling ideas to pimp up a rug. I didn’t have textile paint, only acrylic and oil.

Linkin Park & the Evolution of Music

Right, this is something that’s been rumbling about in my head for quite a while. And now, it’s the middle of the night and I’ve been listening to music. For the rest of the weekend it seems I’m home alone, and these days listening to music for hours are pretty much what I do when I’m alone.

Back to the topic at hand though. Linkin Park, the void it’s actually left in my life, the outpouring of love from around the globe and the impact they’ve had on my life, once it’s all simmered in the back of my mind.

Above all though, their music.

One Year Anniversary

Last night marked the one year anniversary of the day the two of us moved in together!

It’s pretty exciting, folks. Well, maybe not for everyone else, but for us it’s a big deal. It’s flown by, really, and it is only the first milestone of many. It’s been weird, but it has also been amazing, and I can stress to past me about how good of a choice it was. Good job, dude.

For my part, despite that one year I had an (almost random) roommate, I’ve pretty much been living on my own ever since I was eighteen. That is, the year I was ruthlessly and carelessly thrown to the wind in a sort of ‘get out’ sort of fashion. Well not really. But I did have to move out then.

I’d think it would have been harder, but I’ve loved every minute of living with this woman <3

We took the opportunity to eat out:

Book Haul

As you might expect, I love books. Perhaps even more so, I love the smell of new books. To the point that I honestly wish it was a cologne. It’s evigorating. Almost..sexual, actually I should reel this in right about now…

Anyway, over the years I’ve developed this mindset that I should try to write, just anything, even when I’m not really writing for any of my projects or just generally ‘working’. As I kind of am not doing right now. I’ve written on other stuff periodically, yet at the moment I’m hip deep in editing AA. As such, whenever I write anything, be it blog posts, grocery list, reviews, I feel better. Like I’ve done some writing stuff.

As such, one of the things I could add to the blogging are my book hauls. Despite not finding time to read them all, I do get a lot of books (and we need more shelves) and I often get them in clusters.

So here’s my most recent purchases:
