Well look what the cat dragged in...



Someone dropped off the edge of the blogging world for a bit. It's kinda funny how long I've been absent because it wasn't intentional... but now I'm back!  I have so much to share--ahhh, where to even start?!  Get ready for a mish mash of posts. haha


P.S. FOLLOW ME ON BLOGLOVIN / Hello Cotton
So bummed about Google Reader! I love that format for reading blogs and I haven't found something similar.

Derbywire

I helped out a few friends on a video for a new app they pitched to Google at the beginning of November. It was a lot of fun, even when riding around Atlanta on the squeakiest bike ever with no breaks!

Derbywire is a collective space where creatives from all walks of life can house, sell & buy digital content on the go.

I've been cartoonized!



My friend Yoonhwa took on a project last quarter where she drew a lot of the student body at our school. This is her version of me! I don't actually own a dress that looks like that....but now I wish I did. ;D

Pumpkin Patch Shennagnigans

Woops, I missed a day. [I don't count the weekends in this "challenge"] I blame it on not having Internet for the past 2 weeks in the new apartment. It only took FOUR Comcast technicians and then my roommate finally Googling how to connect our router. The final technician figured out the wiring, but was baffled by the router.

Now we have Internet and all is right with the world...inside our apartment anyway. ;D  Now I can share with you all pictures of when some of my friends and I took a trek to the pumpkin patch last month.

[Most pictures taken by my lovely friend Kate...unless she is in the picture. obvs]

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I had to photobomb at least once. ;D

Earworm: Grimes

I've been listening to this song a lot on repeat. I'm pretty bummed I missed seeing Grimes when she was here last month.

Wanted Wednesdays: Books


When I was younger I was a HUGE reader! I refused to get in the car unless I had a book with me. 
[I'm lucky to be someone who can read in the car without getting sick]

Then as I grew older, the Internet stole my soul, and I just generally became busier, books took a back seat in my life. I've recently rediscovered my love of books again and I've started to compile a list of soon-to-read.  Here are just a few I'm itching to get my paws on.


I'd love recommendations for books.   Like-- really really. ;)

*The Body Farm is so fascinating to me, and Death's Acre is one of my favorite books.

Brunch Date with grrfeisty!

I've known Roxy from grrfesity for a good 9-10 years online, and today, I FINALLY MET HER IN PERSON!!! 

She was in Atlanta for the WFTDA Championships and I was able to grab Sunday brunch and give her the 2cent Atlanta tour.

 
Photo thanks to Roxy. She's pocket-sized!

She's just as awesome as she is online and I didn't feel any first meeting awkwardness at all. I actually kept forgetting this was the first time we had ever met because it was so relaxed. Hopefully I can make it out to her neck of the woods before another 10 years goes by. ;D

 
My yummy spread at The Flying Biscuit Cafe. 

 
Continuing the trend [via I Still Hate Pickles] of taking a picture of Roxy while she takes a picture.

 
Me trying on some ridiculous shades while Roxy purchased some goodies in Little 5 Points.
 
 
 I wish I had more pictures, but my camera is packed up in one of the 10 million boxes I moved over to my new apartment on Saturday.  Another blogger fail--I'm racking them up! ;p

My Instant October


Today is packing so that tomorrow I can move approximately a block over. Yep, you heard me--ONE BLOCK OVER.  Don't you love apartment management who moves you in an apartment only to tell you 2 weeks later they are tearing your building down and you have to relocate?  So much frustration!

So let's look back at the happier times in October. It flew by, but I was still lucky enough to sneak in a few fall activities!


 
Annual trip to the pumpkin patch.

 
Followed by the annual trip to the apple orchard for all the apple goodness.

 
Halloween decorations with the roommate.

 
Spooky movie festival with the BFF Amanda

 
Carving family member's faces out of pumpkins

 Refusing to make "normal" cookies. 

 
And even a trip to the zoo!

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!

I only had one costume this year...but it was pretty awesome.  I was the Yellow Power Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!  The idea was originally created for a group of us to wear in a Halloween bike ride and then I reused my costume again for a Halloween party later in the month. 

We all bought spandex body suits and then heat-pressed the vinyl diamonds on ourselves. The Yellow Power Ranger doesn't have a skirt like the Pink Power Ranger because she was originally a male character in the Japanese show, so I hunted down some yellow shorts so I didn't feel so exposed.  Unfortunately, the males in our groups were not as concerned about that as me...so I apologize for the male bulge/s below. ;p

(I also apologize for the wide variety of sizes. I'm pulling these image from a lot of different sources and am being a lazy blogger and not making them all the same size)

 
 
 
 
Please note my one finger that is exposed so I could use my phone. haha
 
 
Then I just removed that glove completely so I could eat food without it getting all gross. yeah-classy!

Happy Halloween!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderfully spooky holiday! 

 I can't believe how long it's been since I updated this blog. :X  I've been super stressed with school and moving twice within 30 days...it's just made time switch to warp speed.  I have so much to share though and so I've decided to join in on NaBloPoMo.  <--please font="font" fun.="fun." out-loud--it="out-loud--it" pretty="pretty" s="s" say="say" that="that">
I'm hoping posting every day in November, no matter how little or large, will help me get back in the swing of things.  I miss blogging!

Pay It Forward

(source)
 
 I've seen this idea pop up here and there around the blogosphere and always thought it was neat, so when I saw Mary Van Note post one on her blog, I decided to join in!
 
Here’s how it works:
The first three people to comment on this post will receive a gift, a little something from me to you.
 
The fine print:
– I’ll create something special to share with the first three people to comment on this post. 
– In order to receive your present you have to play along.
Spread the love on your own blog promising to send a little special something to the first three people who comment on your post.
– You get 72 hours to re-post, or I’ll have to move on to the next person.
 
Who doesn't love getting fun mail? Let's keep it going!

Chicago Bound!

(source)

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I will be heading to Chicago from September 16th through the 22nd.  The main reason we are going is to attend the Cusp Conference, but we allotted some extra time to explore!

 That's where I need your help--what do we DO/SEE/EAT while we are there??!

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :D

P.S. How cold will it be up there around this time of the year? This is coming from a girl that has only every lived in the South. My friends that are going with me say it will be fine, but I have my doubts.
