I have been so productive these last few weeks!
well, maybe "productive" isn't exactly the right word... but at least i'm not slacking all over the floor.
MY FRIEND EMM CAME TO VISIT!
we ate fancy breakfast
and had a lot of giggles while she showed me how to use snapchat
I still can't figure out how to see stories? whatever. i'd rather tweet.
I FINISHED MY FIRST SEWING PROJECT SINCE 2006
well, this stitch bitch still got it. i as asked to embroider a fabric square for a coworker's baby gift, so i dug out my hoops and orange scissors and made:
IT IS DONE. my first sewing project since 2006. ♥️✂️ #needlework #domesticated pic.twitter.com/DKpaSjmZNf— salmiak (@synonyme) August 15, 2016
i'm really proud of this! it's even for the most part (there are two stray stitches in the cat that i couldn't fix and it brings out the OCD in me, even though it's hardly noticeable from afar) and i free handed the border (because i was lazy to draw up something) so i even impressed myself with how well it turned out. ironically, i stitched my name in last with some leftover thread and i wish i had made it smaller (it's a little distracting). but at that point i was like, what the hell, i'm done with this project, i can't feel my fingertips, and i don't want to cut more purple thread so i am leaving this shit here. >__<
I SAW SILVERSUN PICKUPS LIVE

still living off the high of this memory...
I WENT TO MY FIRST COMICON
i was a little under the weather (and extreme sleep deprived) but it was still a vivid experience! so much to see, so many pop culture references!
i would also like to mention that i went to hear john barrowman speak. i honestly didn't recognize his name/face but le boyfriend informed me he is from the arrow show (i watched the whole first season but haven't kept up since) and wanted to check out his panel...
I LIKE THIS GUY AS A PERSON. he is really honest and funny!!
i guess i just became a john barrowman fan.
I WENT TO WATCH SUICIDE SQUAD
dressed like this, of course
i won't say anything since the movie is still pretty fresh... perhaps later i'll toss some comments around. i CAN say there are a few things that the aerialist in me appreciated. corde lisse is no fucking joke man. it should be an olympic event.
speaking of which, at aerial i've finally got a nice little combo down- triple roll up to cross back straddle to dancer's pose. the new thing i'm working on is iron cross:
|one day i hope to look this graceful.|
to double foot locks. it's hell on the wrist so i might be stuck here a while. new session is starting at samadhi, if anyone wants to try flying! http://samadhihawaii.com
I HELPED IN A PUBLIC ART INSTALLATION
the hotel where my dad works has major renovation right now. the new lobby will feature a giant copper fish along the ceiling. employees and their family were invited to help hammer out the scales. i'm number 44-13
come see it in person later this year. ^^
hope everyone else is having a nice august.
