I'm Back  
After taking the intervening time between semesters for myself, I have returned to LJ/DW and will hopefully get my butt back to writing in the next few days.

What did I do in that interim period? I went to the March for Science in NYC on a rather drizzly day and participated in a color run with my friend K; I bought a ridiculously overpriced hair dryer and dyed my hair a lovely red-violet color that my boss has yet to comment on (*snerk*). I don't know if I'll be keeping this color or going for a deeper purple, but I'm enjoying it.

I went to free comic book day up in Massachusetts with my close friend B, where several young men stared at us wide-eyed because girls were in a comic book store which entertained us to no end. I learned that day that there are, in fact, Batman Beyond comics and got some level of judgement from the guys who run the shop for purchasing 2 of the Stargate: Atlantis comics from the Kickstarter campaign. I almost left with a Hawkeye Hot Toy. Instead, I saved the money and have since started collecting some of the Aquaman merch that I find on clearance. I now have a cute little Aquaman Dorbz to sit with my Funko POP! Maui and a plush Aquaman that I will likely have to constantly steal back from the cats!

There was a trip to Florida with the niece & nephew. For the record, after 30 years, I should know better than to go into EPCOT without a water bottle: I dehydrated, overheated, and threw up on a Cast Member. The sunburn I got that day could have guided in planes and took a week to calm down enough I could throw my purse strap on it. Upside, I got to ride the new Frozen ride in Disney and can legitimately say I hate that they replaced Maelstrom with it.

My new semester starts Monday, and I'll be re-taking the class that the video didn't pass as well as emergency procedures. If I can pass it this time, I'll be on track to graduate after the fall semester. I'm crossing my fingers that I can start videotaping this week after work and have it submitted well before the due date. If I can do that, it'll give me time to correct any videos that she finds fault with.

I'm going to try to catch up on the flist, but how have you all been? :)

Wow, sounds like you've been pretty busy! I'm glad you had fun and are back though :)

You might have gotten some level of judgement from the comic book people, but I'm jealous you have the comic :)

Thank you. :) I'm really hoping this semester doesn't kick my ass so much that I disappear again.

It was worth the judgement. I now have #1-3 and I'm keeping my eyes out for more.

!! Mass! I wish I'd known! I did free comic book day, but probably somewhere very, very different.

I'm glad you mostly had a great time!

Thanks!
