I'm motivated, y'all

I'm feeling a ton more confident than I was yesterday when I put up this post, due in very large part to all the helpful advice and perspective. I'm going to bike over to the place I applied to yesterday to turn in my resume in person. I'm also going to spend today finding at least 2 other places to apply to, and spend every one of my days off doing the same thing until I get an interview somewhere I like. We're gonna turn this mother out.


My album is going to be out on April 15th.

I needed an arbitrary deadline, and this is my Mom's birthday. It's so fucking close to being done, and I'm never going to finish it if I don't have a date. I'm going to master it myself, and if it sucks it sucks. It's going to be the first music I've charged for. $5.


I'm sewing again.

A shirt I made my bf for his birthday. Yes, it glows in the dark. It's also got some hand-embroidered stars around the collar that are kind of hard to see.

90% done with this, just need to hem. Unbelievably cozy.

For anyone interested: this is the month that I actually open up an Etsy shop. Get hype.


A story to make you feel things

I went to Lan Su yesterday, which was absolutely stunning. In one section of it, they had set up a Qingming display, where patrons could honor the deceased with written notes. Lots of beautiful little remembrances to lost parents, pets, stuff like "I hope that you are happy in heaven, Dad" etc.

And then, this.

Which destroyed me. I seem to actually be feeling emotions these days, which is a nice (if draining) change of pace.

EDIT: Uh, accidentally made some sweet fuckin' glitch art when I was editing it.

Keep me posted for when you open up your etsy store. I know a lot of Mascs who would die for some dope ass short sleeve button downs, and if you're up for the challenge I know a few people (myself included) who would be into women's button downs, especially if you can mod a pattern for wider shoulders.

I would spread this ALL OVER the Ontario queer community.

Thanks 'spoons, I'll absolutely let you know! Still working on understanding how to make flattering women's button-downs, but if I ever crack the code I would gladly make one for you (and for you, Dala!)

Honestly, most of my non-work clothes (for summer, at least) are men's anyway, so I don't even have to wait for you to learn ladies patterns. I am excited for this etsy shop to happen.

Seconded. I have the worst time with button downs because I am just built funny I guess. Am jealous of your bf's new shirt.

My mom's birthday is also the 15th!
