It’s officially the beginning of May! Hallelujah! I hope y’all had a safe April, and that you were able to get things done and maybe caught up on some well-needed rest.
I had a rather rough April, as I know many other people did-although mine was probably for different reasons…but I digress XD-but let’s hope that things start looking up soon! :D
Now, to delve into the virtual nothingness of April…
I’m kidding. X”D I did do some worthwhile things, I promise.
God Bless the Broken Road cover by the Piano Guys
This beautiful cover came out a few weeks ago, and I can’t stop listening to it. It’s calm and quietly rousing, with a gentle crescendo; the Piano Guys outdid themselves on this one.
Level of Concern by Twenty One Pilots
ACK TØP released a new song and it’s SO MUCH FUN. So lighthearted and bouncy sounding, not usual for them, but still /epic/. -flails-
The Stars Are You and Me by Thomas Bergensen
Thomas Bergensen of Two Steps From Hell has been releasing a few songs, and they’re SO GOOD. This one was one of my favorites, it’s got AMAZING vocals.
Oh, and I made a Quarantine playlist, if anybody cares to check it out. XP
The Great Mouse Detective
The Princess and the Frog
The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight Rises
Tales of Redwall: The Rogue Crew by Brian Jaqcues
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
I did a lot of Beta reading this month as well, so I didn’t get as many regular books in. XP
My 18th Birthday: Yep! I turned 18 on April 25th. Expect a post screeching about adulthood fairly soon. XP I had a nice, calm day with my family complete with cinnamon rolls; and got some chocolate, a book about Scottish chiefs, my favorite movie: Inception, a Gimli minifigure (thanks, bro), a hoodie, a bag, and some money. Plus a few friends surprised me by dropping their presents off, which was epic and totally made my day. :D
^^^ my Gimli
^^^ one of the gifts that one of my friend dropped off-it's a fairy garden Hobbit Hole!!! -flails-
Story Embers Virtual Writing Summit: Story Embers put on a virtual writing summit over the weekend of my birthday, and it was SO GOOD. They had amazing speakers with fantastic tips and ideas; it was engaging and overall just a lot of fun. The theme was writing great characters and relationships-and now I’m all hyped for writing my own characters. XD
Camp Nano: Yeah…this didn’t go as planned. XD XD Some extreme tiredness and the realization that I needed to finish school in order to graduate this year hit me about halfway through the month, so I wasn’t able to get as much writing is as I’d hoped. X”D But I did get a few chapters of Ship’s Log in, and started plotting some new twists…
Huge shoutout to all the lovely people who I shared writing groups with-y’all did amazingly with your goals. <33
See above. X”D
Aanndd that’s all I’ve got for y’all today. XD ‘Twas a month of much schoolwork, some health problems, and craziness. XP
Oh, and if you didn’t hear about the Random Blog Party, here’s a link to the first post and the second (on my blog)-it’s been a fun way to take our minds off of things, if anybody else wanted to join us. We’ll be announcing part three, the art contest, this next week! :D
How was your April?? Did you watch any good movies? Read any good books? How was your Camp Nano, all of you writerly types out there?
