Thanks Chelsea.

This is what happens when you are intoxicated and begin to bite other individuals, and then one decides to bite back. Yeah, actually, this isn’t going to stop me from biting people even still.






October is one of my favorite months ever. Not just because my birthday happens to be contained in it, but because of the glorious weather, Halloween, fall scents such as cinnamon and pumpkin pie, haunted houses [I have visited just one so far.], and all of the super fun events that tend to take place during the beginning of fall.
This year has brought so many changes, and it is so stunning how quickly time flies. “Don’t waste your time, or time will waste you.” I heard this quote the other day, and it made me seriously reconsider my procrastination habits. There are things I have put off for what feels like years, and I don’t want to find myself any older still feeling unaccomplished. I don’t want to wake up one day and discover that I have wasted so many precious years of my life doing nothing relevant.

Handmade wrist pin cushion.

Today was a very lazy Sunday; usually dedicated to be my homework day, but instead turned out to be a semi craft day. Whenever I am procrastinating on school work, I actually begin to do other tasks that I’ve been needing to do, and so I guess it is not entirely a wasteful procrastination?

I made this little wrist pin cushion after I saw a designer somewhere on television with one of these. I can’t count how many times I have struggled pinning things on a dress form, or pinning some tiny seam allowance, and I would have to stretch over to my container of pins. Noooot anymore! By the way, mosquitoes love me.

And how adorable is that piggy patch? I love chubby pigs, especially when they are dressed in clothing. AND ESPECIALLY when they are holding baskets.

Embellished with this little inane patch I found at an old warehouse.

 Among other things that I did this weekend; I celebrated Cisco’s birthday, one of my guy friends, and by the end of the night we ended up in an ollllld diner that looked like it was last updated in 1960.


I also visited this supposedly super haunted restaurant called the Catfish Plantation with two cosplay friends; Nick and Angel. Now I must tell you that I am a huge skeptic, I need cold hard facts and scientific evidence before I will jump to any conclusion; but that place literally sent chills up my spine.
They hosted a special after hours event, which included a buffet of delicious catfish, chicken, wine and beer, hush puppies, sweet potato fries, and other goodies. Afterwards they gave us a tour and a detailed history of the location. There were several moments in a specific spots where my arms were covered in goosebumps, and my neck and back felt chilled, but that could have easily just been the excitement.


When I got back home, I looked up online media on the place, and I found this video: : A featurette of the restaurant on the Travel Channel.
I plan to take my mother and father there for lunch. 😀

In case anyone is curious, Samus made a full recovery, and is back to her normal self. She just gets cuter with each day.
