A couple of weeks ago I had several days off in a row so I decided to go somewhere, anywhere. I asked around questioning my friends where I should go and while they all gave me great ideas it was something my mom said that inspired me. I asked her where to go and we chatted back and forth and then as the subject was nearly dropped out of the blue she goes, "There's a lot to do in Missouri!" This struck me as kind of an odd statement because all I knew about Missouri was that it had the Gateway Arch but I was intrigued so I looked into it. And the more I looked the more I saw.
I got a label maker for Christmas. I feel as though I was entrusted with far too much power. Right away I started labeling things with what I felt like were their true names. A chair became butt shelf, refrigerator became cold box, etc. To see more of these unique names check out the video below. Keep an eye out for the Little Mermaid and Crocodile Dundee reference!
A few months ago I came home to a surprise from my roomie. Apparently she'd agreed to cat sit for a friend. The cat is still here. I've accepted that this is our new cat. To commemorate this I made him model.
I was recently commissioned to take a photo for a family who wanted a unique perspective. After hiking through a local trail we came across the perfect spot overlooking the river. This photo was taken with the insta 360 one x on a selfie stick which allowed for a drone like perspective while achieving the tiny planet effect. Thank you Maureen for letting me try this unique style and I'm glad you liked the result!
I can't say my vacation was particularly relaxing but man o man did I do a lot. Mere moments after landing I was almost immediately lost and never really figured out where I was the entire time I was there, ha. I was in San Francisco for 3 and half days and in that time I went to: pier 39, explored a mirror maze, played with light sabers, found some cool art, played on the beach, and well you get the gist. I think my favorite activity was the suicide girls blackheart burlesque show.
Desire to learn silks intensifies! There were so many cool things happening. I only captured a fraction of it with this video. I would have liked to include more but it was so dark most of the footage didn't look very good. I think my favorite act was the silk duo. It was so cool to see 2 people doing silk at the same time.
A few years ago some of my friends made a video called, "Darkest Dungeons." They put a lot of hard work into it and I respect the project but it wasn't my favorite video that they've made. I felt like the pacing of the video was off. This came up in conversation recently so I decided to take a crack at editing it. I'm pretty proud of how much I was able to change it. Over all I'm jazzed I could take a 20 minute video and cut it down to just over 3 minutes and have it make sense.
For context here is the original 20 minute video. https://youtu.be/Tk_-ZJJEyY4
Last weekend I saw some bright wibbly wobbly lights. I went to an event called Blink. To quote their website, "Blink is an experience of light, street art, murals and live performance spread across 25+ blocks of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky." It was quite a large event and really spread out. I feel like I missed quite a few parts of it but my favorite things were the bridge and the teeter totters.
In a surprise to no one I went to another Renaissance Festival. This one was in Ohio and was by far the largest one I've been to. Not only did I get lost for a little bit but I didn't manage to see everything in a day. I think my favorite part was the kamikaze fireflies. I even got to see a Guinness world record broken. 5 flaming hula hoops at once!
