The Monthly: August 2020

August 2020 was a stressful, exhausting month for me where I realized I needed to change my life. Oh, and BATMAN.

I swear the plan was to write more often this month – I just forgot. Got stressed, worked a lot, you know the drill. It just means that all of the posts I had planned for last month can get bumped to this month. I am trying something new this month to get me to be more thoughtful and productive and also like myself a little more – I invested in a Thoughtful Journal (by invested I mean $15 at Target).

That will be talked about more next month – for now let’s talk about my August.

Life

I thought I was the most stressed from June – July but oh was I wrong. This month was a different kind of stressed, an exhausted stressed. Pushed to my breaking point where my health was starting to go to shit. I was sleeping all day, waking up to eat and go to work, taking my medication at different times.

Midway through the month I started setting a 3pm alarm to take my ADD and anxiety meds, and I feel like that has helped immensely! It means though that when I go out anywhere or to work I need to keep them on me to take on time, but luckily no one at work as given me anything for it (not that they would, literally it’s my medication). I did have to bring it with me to Disney World to take, which was a little nerve wracking but it was fine other than that.

I did go to Disney in August! My friend and I went to the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot on August 17 and then on August 18 we spent the day at Magic Kingdom, staying overnight at Pop Century with my Gold Passholder discount. I’m going to write a whole post about this actually so people have a first hand opinion on the parks at this time, but since I am going again on the 12th of this month, I’m going to wait and see if there are any differences.

So after feeling semi better after Disney, of course nothing can stay nice for me. I’m in a mental rut – sort of. I am drawing a little more and writing more, but other than that I just feel….. stuck. I know I need to make a change in my life, something that I don’t want to do. I had a good conversation with my mom yesterday about it and instantly felt better, then felt even better after talking to my friend.

Things will be changing, we’ll see what happens after that.

Fan Culture

Hang onto your asses, everyone cause this is a ride. We all know what happened this month – DC Fandome. Now everyone who knows me knows that I am not a big DC person – I fucking despise Batman who is one of their most popular heroes. But this shit was good man – let me tell you.

We’ll start with Batman himself. We all owe Robert Pattinson an apology – myself included cause I unsure as to how this was gonna go but woooooooo daddy this is just – forgive me, Mom, for I am thinking sin. They released this teaser which was enough juice to keep me satisfied for a while – and yall they haven’t even filmed half the goddamn movie yet.

I’m just – I’m speechless.

Next up on the list is Wonder Woman – she is the love my my life and that was also released. I need it – y’all she just – she fucking rode lightning! Like she lassosed lightning! She is so bad ass!!! Also I still need to know how Steve came back to life cause damn – I would quite like to know.

Next up there was some behind the scenes released of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad – those I won’t like here since it’s not really anything like a trailer but god damn does that look dope too. It’s just a bunch of psychos trying to do some good and I want Margot Robbie to marry me. Please Margot, anything – marry me.

Lastly, I end this section with just this: The Snyder Cut Justice League teaser. Just….. it speaks for itself, don’t you think?

Monthly Obsession

Other than anime, I have no shame in admitting this, a mobile game. It’s one of those otome dating sim games and it’s called Obey Me: Shall We Date?

Demons. Hot demons. And it’s consumed my life to the point where me and a friend are writing a full on fanfic about it plotted out to the god damn nines. If you need to kill time and are lonely, download this game. Its addicting and fun and the story is really good and the fan works are even better. Then come talk to me and I’ll send you the link to my stuff.

Besides that I’ve been trying to draw again – which has been proving difficult but I am working on telling my brain that it takes time and practice and that I won’t be a Pablo Picasso right away.

That’s about all I have for this month! Stay tuned for my Disney posts and a few other things and let me know down below how your months have been going!
