Life is Good  
Today has been a great day. I really enjoyed chatting with you guys in the stream today. I'm very happy to have worked on so much art today and made some progress. I don't know if I'll be able to finish the budgie pic. It's so late now and tomorrow I'll be pretty busy so it will be late but it should be done by the end of the week. So much stuff in the works. And I have enjoyed writing again. I want to work on an outline for Flight of Fire. Been thinking about Pyranax. Oh and some good news I have been meaning to mention. I finally found Fear's wings. I was starting to freak out they had been lost. We moved so much stuff out of my computer room and nothing. Chris mentioned they might be stuck between something like paper or magazines. Then he said that he even looked in my book bag and no luck. That's when I stopped and had an idea. What about my old camera bag? I checked it and sure enough they were folded in there. So I had not unpacked them since I visited ACTipton last July. The wings have been missing almost an entire year. But of course when I got back from that trip is when my life got turned up side down.

On that note. I have been the happiest this month than in a very long time. You guys know I went through Hell last year after getting back from that trip with all the stuff that happened because of my mother's death. Nearly 10 months of aweful things I had to endure that even trickled over into this year. But I am better and stronger for it. I am very thankful now. I have my drawing skills back, I'm very happy, I get easily amused by things again. And I'm so much more free now. I got a new car out of this mess and I have done amazing things with it already like drive to Canada. I have an awesome husband that helped me through it all. Things still aren't perfect but they're a hell of a lot better and I am happy and thankful.

I watched this video today about the eclipse. Well the first part. It's annoying this guy did those stupid ads on his video.


It was this video too that made me decide to buy that app so I can track the neat events of the eclipse. I put in the coordinates for the Target I will go to and it says it's a great location. So I have done my research well. Let's hope the weather is perfect that day too. That's the only uncontrollable factor that has me worried. But this darn app kept talking to me even when I had closed it. I don't know why it was doing that. Doesn't it know what the date is? I finally turned off notifications on it and it seems to be ok now. I almost uninstalled it but now it may not be necessary. I just have to remember to turn everything back on on the 21st.

I played Plague Inc today on the Simian Flu level. Well, it does have music but it's super faint. I only heard a few notes at the start and it may as well be muted. It sucks this way and it's boring without music. What a shame. Shanalog showed me what the music is supposed to sound like and it's too bad it just doesn't work on PS4. So only one campaign left for me to play and I'd have beaten everything as far as main game goes. I'll check out the other stuff after that. I have enjoyed it.

As you saw I logged all the stories I have made for George on one post. I'll be making more index posts like this and try to organize my stories better. Cope and Owen will probably be next and they'll get a huge one. I bet there's stuff I've totally forgotten that I wrote. I've got quite a bit of material made up over the years. And I have to do this too with my descriptions of the types.
I need to fix the mood themes on my DA since stupid photobucket has screwed everything up with linked photos. They keep emailing me to which is pissing me off. I'll have to just block them. I haven't linked to them in ages anyway. They're not getting a cent from me.

And lastly I need to keep destroy that Fear plush so I can make the new black Scary Fear plush. I'll be so glad once that's over because I really want to have my new travel buddy before the end of the month if possible. So lots of stuff to work on. Things are good.

I'm glad to know that you had a great day and I also enjoyed talking with you and friends on Livestram as well as your progress on your art. Nice to know that you found Fear's wings and working on Flight of Fire.

It's great that this has been the happiest month for you and that things are going better for you now.
I watched that video and I found it really interesting, especially with shadow bands, though he is right, it is tricky to find them captured on video, odd that the app doesn't know what date it is though.
That's annoying that Plague Inc on the PS4 has problems with sound, though it's nice that you tried Simian Flu.

It's a neat idea having Livejournal posts of all the stories for George and it's great that Cope and Owen will be getting one as well as fixing the mood themes due to what happened with photobucket.
I'll enjoy seeing what your new Scary Fear plush will look like when it is completed.

Yeah streams are a lot of fun when you get everyone together. Thanks. I'm so glad about finding his missing wings. I was so worried about that.

This whole years has been getting better but I realized yesterday that I really am feeling great like my old self.

I'm glad you liked the eclipse video. It was rather fascinating. I'm excited about making a plan to set up cameras.

I liked that Simian Flu game. I may have to try it again for fun now that I know how to beat it.

Yeah, I should make indexes like this for everyone that has a lot of stories.

Thanks. I hope I can find time to work on the plush and finish it soon.

I think indexing all your stories is a good idea. That way you can find them later.

It's also good you found Fear's wings. Now hopefully you can get on making an updated plush.

Yes this will be way more organized than scrolling through the Story tag. It will help a lot.

I'm so happy about Fear's wings. I hated how they've been lost for so many months. Too bad Gamma didn't get to meet him complete.

It is always fun to come together in a stream. And it is good to hear that you are in a writting mood again. Always a fun thing to do, and for us to read. And yeah, last year and a chunk of this one were really annoying and draining. But you go through those and enjoy the peaceful periods.

Also, glad to hear that your planning for the Eclipse seems to be going well. If the weather plays with, then you should have a perfect view on it.

Hmm, yeah the music and sound are a huge part of it. They create a wonderful atmosphere while you try to eradicate humanity. But I am glad you had fun on your ride... I am still stuck at fungus meanwhile, so I really need to catch up (I currently have a safefile where I am undetected, but have infected all of the world).

Splendid Idea actually. That way everyone has an overview of your different works. I think you can pin those at the top of your journal then?

Yes I'm very happy that things have been on the up and up.
I have learned a lot more about the eclipse now and had no idea it would be so complex after seeing that video. I may set up a video camera and just let it run because getting perfect photos at the exact moments seems too much work and too hard despite this being a once in a life time thing. I do have so many cameras though. I'm not sure perhaps I'll practice and try to get some gear for them.

Yeah the music is so important in this game. I'm disapointed that it's screwed up on that level.

Yes I think making indexes will definitely help. I can only pin one thing at a time. I should have pinned the wish list but it's too close to the date now to matter.

I'm so glad you found his wings and also glad you had such a great day!
Desthagirion on July 13th, 2017 03:41 pm (UTC)
Thanks. Yes so glad about the wings being found. Just things have been better the last few months.

You made such an awesome job of them, it would have been a pain to do them again.

I'm glad your last few months have been better.

I was very happy to join that stream and i will always be happy to do in future hoping not to miss them. Streams are one of best tool because they strengthen our friendship plus i learn new different things. I was very relaxed especially when you drew ocean (sorry for mistaken it for the sky, flat colours confused me) and sky, in that moment i was drinking a fresh bottle of still water. It was very fitting considering the summer atmosphere of the gift art. By the way you did an awesome job with that. I love the detail of colours, especially on chest. What morph is Luna?

Let me say i am very happy to hear this is your happiest month and i am relieved to know things are better and seem to get better and better^^

As for Plague Inc. Evolved i enjoyed the level and i like noises apes make when you create a new colony not to mention i find them very cute when they travel countries and oceans. That lovely deadly black mass of apes^^ (dark humour mode on)
I like the music of that level but my favourite will always be "Plague Blossom": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfAGGQ9a_Ko
I love listening to it when i read virology stuff.

Glad you are going to log Owen and Cope stories. Even if i read their character sheets last year i didn't read their stories and i would like to know them better.
I look forward to seeing new Scary Fear plush^^
Desthagirion on July 13th, 2017 03:46 pm (UTC)
Yeah I might hold another session in the near future. We'll see. It is fun to talk to everyone. That's ok. It was blue and looked like the sky. Except it didn't go all the way up and there was white background still. Yeah nothing looks right in the flat stage so you have to be patient and keep coloring until things start to look like something. I'm trying to decide what pic to do today. Let's see there's in FBTF, in No Hard Feelings, Ink George and Fear, color rocks and BG for Fear relaxing, color the stork...I think that's all for now. All my other ideas I still have to draw.

Oh yes the theme song is amazing. I love the tension it cause. A good one for Fear too. Dark and creepy so I love it.

Logging Cope and Owen's story will be hard. I know that for sure. I may have to save the post a few times before it's finished. Cope and Owen are such complex characters and back then I was as obsessed with them as I am with Fear now.
Ah yes the plush. I must find time to work on him too. Goal is to have him done before my next trip. I hope I can do that.
