Oh gawrsh it's been a while

Hey blog, how have you been? I have been a bit busy...or rather that is the excuse I would normally give. The truth is that I had let some folks bully me into hiding and being scared to share my thoughts on this space or to be creative in general. After taking a short break to go to my happy place (Disneyland) and a short staycation I took time to think and realized that it's time for me to get back into doing the things that I love.

Since my last blog (which was back in April) I have gone to Playlist Live in Orlando, EA Play in LA, VidCon in Anaheim, and hosted a two-day event at work. I have also gone to Disneyland twice in the span of  4 months and made a short trip to Disney World for a day while I was in Orlando. I'll be doing a separate blog about those trips over the next week or so. 

I have also completed a few more outlines from my Pokemon cross stitch project though I, admittedly, need to pick up the pace as I am lagging behind significantly. I am hoping to finish the outlines of the first 151 (plus Alola varients) before the end of the year so I can go all in on the colors in the new year. 

Another thing that happened: I reached "Affiliate" status on Twitch. I haven't streamed since I got affiliate because I have no idea what I want my emotes to be and so now my brain is thinking about the "long game" when it comes to this stuff. I don't plan on changing emotes completely as I'd rather just update the look of an emote than remove one outright. I've just never given it much thought as to what I would theme my channel around...probably Disney and Karaoke >.> WHO KNOWS. 

Looking forward to getting back into blogging, streaming, making more YT videos, and just overall being creative!
