A Month In Review: September 2016

month-in-review-spt-2016

Well, school is back. So things have been very busy for the last month. I haven’t had as much time for art recently, but I still got several pieces done that I’m really happy with. I did some palette requests on Tumblr, which was fun, and I got all the Blue Team redesigns done and redrew the height chart! I also started an Ask Blog for the characters so I can work on character development/consistency. You can find it here and leave questions if you like!

things-watched-sept-2016

We watched several things this month. My sister’s friend came round fairly early in the month and as usual she brought her Studio Ghibli collection. This time we watched Laputa: Castle in the Sky. It was good, with a lot of cool animation and stuff. Not my one of my favourite Ghibli films, but still a lot of fun and worth watching.

We borrowed Batman Begins from our neighbors and watched that. I’ve never watched a Batman film before so that was fun. It was good, and quite Batman-y.

My sister got Iron Man for her birthday, so we finally watched that! It was great.

We also started watching the tv series, Victoria, which is about Queen Victoria (if that wasn’t obvious). It’s very interesting and well made.

games-played-sept-2016

This section isn’t going to be a permanent fixture, but I played enough games this month I thought it was worth giving it it’s own section. After drawing fan art I succumbed to playing Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, since we own it and there was a free save slot. I haven’t played strategy games in a while so that was pretty fun. It’s pretty hard too though.

I got a new phone this month! And I can play games on it 😀 (what do you mean that’s not very important). Most importantly Pokemon Go. Woo! It’s fun. And also makes walking fun. So that’s good. Yay for exercise (and Pokemon)

I also got the Love Live School Idol Festival game. It’s a lot of fun. My sister has it too so we can nerd over it together.

things-i-read

books-read-sept-2016

I finished the Ascendance Trilogy, which I started a long while ago. It was good!

I also finally got round to reading The Hidden Oracle, (which I finished literally like a week before book two was released :P). It was a lot of fun. Lots of good Rick Riordan-ishness.

I didn’t write any blog posts this month.

Fandom Stuff:

We got some more episodes of Steven Universe. Then it went on hiatus again. But at least we have some shorts to look forwards to!

Moana got yet another trailer.

RWBY got a character short! It’s amazing. So much hype for season 4

Other Internet Stuff:

next-month

Wow, there is so much stuff I’m hyped for in October!

RWBY Volume 4 begins on the 22nd! The character short released recently has me super excited for that!

Haikyuu!! Season 3 Begins!

The final Ruby Redfort book comes out! Hopefully it’ll be good!

There’s Halloween as well of course.

My Little Pony Season 6 ends! I haven’t been all that impressed with this season so far, but from what people have said about the leaked first part the finale will be amazing.

So that’s what I’ve been up to in September! Have you watched, read or played any of the things I did this month? Anything you think I should try? What are you looking forwards to in October? Hope you all have a great month!

A Month in Review: May 2016

Month in Review - May 2016

Well, May is finished! It’s been a fairly busy month. It was my birthday on the twelfth! I was slightly ill at the time so that was annoying. It wasn’t too bad though. I got Thor and Captain America 2 on blu-ray (it still feels weird to me that we can actually use blu-ray now), and a cool t-shirt.

This one, in fact.

We also went to a circus, which was cool, and rode a steam boat around a lake. I went to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at Rheged. There were a lot of fantastic photos there.

This was my favourite one. It’s so confusing to look at.

I got a ton of art done, mostly requests and birthday presents. A Fairy Tail Reversed!AU (where everything’s the same but the roles are switched, so Lucy brought Natsu to Fairy Tail, Erza turned evil instead of Jellals, etc.) popped up on Tumblr, so I also did some fan art for that, which was a lot of fun. I also worked some more on my Naruto OCs.

Things I Watched

We watched Captain America: Civil War in the cinema! It was great. Go watch it if you haven’t already.

I’ve also been rewatching Gravity Falls with my dad. It’s really interesting spotting all the tiny pieces of foreshadowing.

Things I Read

books read May 2016

I got lots more reading done this month than I have in a while. I continued reading the Naruto manga, and I’ve gotten up to the Sasuke Retrieval Arc. Some things are much better done than in the anime, but I think some parts are actually better in the anime.

I also finished the Fruits Basket manga! It was great. I also started reading the sequel, Fruits Basket Another. Yuki’s son is so fabulous it’s ridiculous.

Lastly I read the entire Harry Potter series within just over a week. It was good, but I’m slightly unsatisfied with the ending. (I have so many questionssssssss)

On the Blog

I didn’t have time to do Adelle’s character interview what with being ill and busy, but I did do Beautiful People for the first time in a while. Hopefully I’ll be able to do the interview in June.

I also made a guest appearance at Stori Tori’s Blog in a post about writing characters from England and Scotland

Elsewhere on the Internet

Fandom Stuff:

My Little Pony Season 6 continues with a couple of very cleverly done episodes, including a Christmas Special in May.

The Beauty and the Beast live action movie got a teaser trailer

Steven Universe is finally back! We ended up seeing some of the soon-to-come episodes early. They’re fantastic. Peridot and Lapis Lazuli are the Best Thing.

Naruto Shippuden finally returned to the plot, with an extended version of Kaguya’s backstory, which has been very interesting.

Other Internet Stuff:

Next Month

Go Teen Writers is holding another 100 for 100 challenge which starts on the 1st of June!

And I’ll be collecting questions for Adelle’s character interview.

So that’s what I’ve been up to this month. How was your May? Have you seen, read or done that I have, and is there anything you think I should try? Looking forwards to anything in June? I hope you all have a great month!
