Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving and Black Friday

To start things off, here is the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade on video if you've missed it (like me):

For Thanksgiving, my family ended up having much more to do than we expected a month prior to the day. My middle sister visited with her boyfriend for breakfast at our place, we headed over to my best friend's house for lunch, and then went over to my aunt and uncle's condo for dessert.

As for Black Friday, it wasn't anywhere near as Thanksgiving, but I still did some shopping.

Picked these up at my nearby thrift store. A few pairs of knee length socks, some tights, and covers for my boots.

I also got all the essentials for my own Christmas tree. I was planning on getting a 4 ft - 5 ft tree, but I got a 6 ft one that was at a great deal for $27. And here is the tree all decorated up.

Other news? You might have noticed I haven't made any projects related to Christmas. I personally am focusing on more personal projects and getting gifts ready before the big day. I'm thinking I'll work on holiday themed ideas at the beginning of 2017 so I'm prepared ahead of time.

One last thing to mention is that I plan to buy a microphone and headphone set so I can actually get to work on video blogs. I'm excited to get started on that when I can.

Welp, got to get back to art projects! Will write again soon.

This is how I Like to Spend my Nights

Burning the incense and lighting up the candles while relaxing at my desk. (I actually took this picture last Friday, but it's still relevant).

I apologize for this post about the election for being a few days late. The results on election night came out when it was time for me to get to bed, the day after I was physically exhausted from being able to get little sleep, and the other two days I ended up two busy to sit down and write. But here I am now.

If you noticed from what I have written earlier, I was in complete shock over the results. I voted for Clinton and was completely sure that she was going to win. But nope, Trump won by electoral college. I'm legitimately terrified what's going to happen in these four years. I pictured wanting to move to Canada, and basically escape. Sadly I can't because I'm too poor to live off a decent income if I were to move.

The short answer to all of this is that I didn't want Trump to win. Can he end up doing better than a lot us think? Maybe, it's possible, but for now I'm going to remain skeptical.

The most that we can all do is look out for one another, stay up to date on current events and try to volunteer for each other. That's what I'm going to do. We made it through the Great Depression, World War II, the Cold War, other shady folks as our presidents, and at least one other economic recession. We can make it through this. Let's keep fighting for our rights!

Mandatory Election Post

Won't post who I voted for tonight. I'll say who I voted for tomorrow. Also I'm looking at the current results through Yahoo in case you want a way to stay updated!

Half true and half false

Meant to post a picture for Halloween, or more specifically, one with the costume I wore. I really didn't like how my costume turned out, which is why I'm showing an image that merely fits the theme of the holiday.

Now I'm off to get ready for the holidays.

(Note to self, don't make promises on this blog).
