    Ayyy~ My name is Kerri. I am a 31-year-old dweeb who lives in Atlanta with my 32-year old dork husband Mark, our small lady Luna, and our blue tabby Link.

    When I’m not spending time with my cuties, I’m usually absorbed in one hobby or another. My hobbies include, but are not limited to, drawing, writing stories, playing video games, playing tabletop RPGs, reading regular novels and graphic novels, watching anime, cooking, decorating and organizing everything, learning new facts,  and finding new music, sci-fi, or fantasy creations to obsess over.

    Overall, I’m just livin’ and chillin’ and whatnot. I’m sending good vibrations to the world ’cause we sure as fuck need it right now (LOL)! Take care!

Grand Summon

baby shower

I feel like the anxiety of taking apart these diaper cakes will be 10x worse than the anxiety of using good stickers. LOL

It’s almost time. Permission to freak the fuck out. ◉‿◉

Although the due date on paper is June 21st, I’ve been told multiple times by doctors and experienced parents alike that when she is ready then she is ready. So, realistically, Luna could be here today or tomorrow or next week. She may not even get here until after the 21st—though not too long after the 21st for her own sake. It’s all just a waiting game… and all I can do at this point is try to squeeze in as much preparation as possible. The things I can handle physically have been folded, packed, unfolded, unpacked, re-folded and re-packed because… pregnancy makes you weird. LOL. Other things, though, are beyond my physical capabilities this month, and that is where I have to rely on Mark. *sigh* Poor Mark. I know growing a baby is tough at times, and I appreciate all the support from everyone, but Mark is the one picking up my slack until I’m completely able-bodied again. So, at the very least, please give him a pat on the back when you see him. I couldn’t do this without his help. ♥

That being said, I’ll likely be on a long hiatus once Luna gets here. And that goes beyond this blog. I probably won’t update social media accounts or answer back calls/texts immediately or accept every invitation to hang out. It all depends on how well we adjust to this parenthood thing. At the moment, it looks like I’ll be spending at least a few weeks taking care of Luna full-time while Mark works. Of course, we’ll both be full-time photographers when she gets here, too, so… LOL. We’ll try to share pictures. Keyword: try.

Well, I think that’s about it. Wish us luck! More importantly, wish Luna luck. She’s about to enter a new world where everything is weird and confusing. I hope we can guide her through it all with our house motto: courage, wisdom, and power. 😛

Alright, that’s about it. Take care!

pin_pink - Copy Mark and I are expecting a baby girl. 

pin_pink - Copy The due date is June 21st, 2018, so we’re pretty much at the halfway point. After the anatomy scan we had on 2/2/18, the due date has been updated to June 13th.

pin_pink - Copy Her heartbeat is strong, blood tests came back with low risk results, and ultrasounds show no abnormality so far. This is a major relief, especially after the loss we experienced last year. Please send positive wishes to our small lady~! hearts_lace - Copy

pin_pink - Copy Our close relatives and friends know about the pregnancy; however, we will not make any “official” announcements until we get the 20-week anatomy scan (along with a crapload of pictures).

Edit: Anatomy scan went great! She’s so energetic! And cute! Even when she’s stomping on my bladder ( T u T )! Waiting for pics though…

pin_pink - Copy We have seen her via ultrasound multiple times, and… yeah…  she is energetic. Aside from the strong heartbeat, the first time we saw her moving she was bouncing all over the place. Then when we had another scan after I had a nightmarish bout with the flu, the midwife told us there was A LOT of activity in there and we were going to have our hands full. LOL. I heard many tales about what a handful I was as a baby, so this is probably karma. ghost_laughing - Copy

pin_pink - Copy Yes, we have thought about possible first names and middle names: Alexandria, Luna, Zelda, Penelope, Vivienne, Francesca, Beatrix, Charlotte… It honestly goes on forever, but we’re trying to shorten the list. -_-

pin_pink - Copy Oh yeah. Baby shower is currently planned for April. We’ll worry about that later though. Not that we’ll have to do much worrying. It’s pretty much being planned for us which is a huge relief. (We suck at parties ghost_crying2 )

pin_pink - Copy All of that aside, Mark and I are wishing for the best. It’s hard not to dwell on the worst once you’ve experienced it, but we’re maintaining hope and thanking our lucky stars each time our hopes are confirmed in little ways. Even the unpleasant symptoms of pregnancy confirm that our daughter is growing stronger, and that makes all of the discomfort worthwhile. Is everything perfect? No. As expecting parents, our home could always be bigger, our income could always be larger, and we could always be better as human beings. Nothing is ever good enough for your child. Period. That, I think, is one of the first habits that parents pick up. Still, that is not an excuse for us to loathe ourselves or become so dejected that we don’t even try. Just the fact that she will have two parents who love and adore her is a luxury some will never know. We want to keep adding to those luxuries that she will have. We don’t want to spoil her, of course, but we also don’t want her to suffer needlessly if we can do anything about it. That is our goal as parents: do our absolute, genuine, and honest best for our daughter. We haven’t even had the blessing of holding her hand yet, but we love her immensely. I hope she never forgets that.

*sigh* Well, I’m off! I’ll update as updates come along, including the usual nerd shit like hobbies and interests. LOL. As always, fight, fight, fight!

Especially you, small lady!

Radiohead + Hans Zimmer: Ocean Bloom

I’m so happy about Hans Zimmer and Radiohead working together for the Blue Planet II OST. My favorite band AND one of my favorite composers…*sigh* So, so, so, so happy. ghost_crying2

I already know whatever they make will be amazing because this version of “Bloom” sounds incredible when compared to the original version, and the original version is already incredible enough to me. I like that they found a way to take the chaotic sound of “Bloom” and organize it into this symphony. It’s so amazing! ghost_crying2ghost_crying2ghost_crying2

*sigh* I’m just going to post the original version of “Bloom” then bounce. I drained myself with all the fangirling I did at AWA yesterday (LOL), so I’m going to chill… until I have the energy to fangirl again. 😀

Björk: The Gate

 

MY SPIRIT HAS BEEN CLEANSED. THE FILTH HAS BEEN WASHED AWAY. I AM UNSULLIED. MY WIG HAS BEEN SNATCHED. MY SCALP IS REFRESHED. GROWTH HAS BEGUN ANEW. I AM BLINDED BY THE LIGHT. DIVINE GODDESS BJORK, WHO DWELLS IN A DIMENSION TOO HOLY FOR MANKIND, HAS COME TO THIS LOWLY PLANET AND RENEWED MY WORTHLESS EXISTENCE WITH PURPOSE. I HAVE BEEN BLESSED. CRYYYYYINNNNG.  

 

 

 

 

* On a serious note, I am really looking forward to her new album. The acceptance and joy that comes after the heartbreak of Vulnicura. My body, spirit, mind, etc, is ready. ( T u T )

YISA 005: A Place To Call Home

Feeling… Thankful
While Listening To“Riding (Day)” – Breath of the Wild

 

 

The past three days have been… adventurous. Let’s start with the first day. I was not awake when it happened, but Mark told me when I woke up Monday morning  that the power was gone. This is not really abnormal where I live. I would say every other month the power goes off for about 30 minutes to 2 hours, and it’s usually preceded by a scary explosion sound in the distance. Um… anyway… not a big deal. It was my assumption that with this whole hurricane ordeal we would just have to deal with the inconveniences for a few hours. That was before noon on Monday. Then came night time on Monday. I would say a good 8-10 hours passed, and we did not hear shit from the electric company besides “we’re working on it”. At that point we just had to make do. We went to Kroger, stocked up on canned foods, got our candles ready, got our flashlights ready, and just tried to have fun with it. “Fun” being Halli Galli and Scrabble and naps, basically. Lol. Oh, yeah. And everything within a five mile radius of our place was a dead zone, so I had no service on my phone either. Needless to say, it was an interesting day. I even found my Vita and played a shitload of games. FF Tactics, Xenogears, Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy VI–all the good shit I downloaded eons ago. All of that aside, Mark and I went to bed around midnight and told ourselves that we should definitely have power by Tuesday because we couldn’t go 24 hours without power… right? 

 

 

 … And this is the part in a sitcom where they cut to the next 24 hours, and the person who spoke too soon is in the exact same situation but 200% angrier. Lmao. Actually, I can’t say I was angry. I was just… disappointed. We get up Tuesday morning with no power and decide, “Fuck it. Let’s just go deposit this check (basically, Mark’s check from Publix for stocks).” We leave around 9am. …The fucking bank wasn’t opening until noon ^^. Go back home for FF Tactics and naps. Go back to the credit union three hours later. Ta da! Check deposited! With no issues! *victory fanfare* With the extra money, we stock up on the supplies we couldn’t get due to our limited funds beforehand, and we head back home for another day in the dark. But, honestly, that depressed the shit out of us. Mark suggested we go on an impromptu date, and I’m glad that he did. We had pho, we got another board game to play (Arkham Horror), we got some things to read (Saga 44-46), and then we headed back home to prepare for the night. Honestly, the moment I stepped foot in the house I was in a crummy mood. (1) I had this cloud hanging over me because I knew the remaining hot water that was in the water heater would run out soon, and (2) everything remotely electronic was about to die including our phones. After ranting with Mark about how annoyed I was by the whole thing we decided to check into a hotel. BEST DECISION EVER . Keep in mind that I have not stayed in a hotel room for years, so this was exciting for me. We checked in (after getting hounded with promotional bullshit that neither of us had the patience to deal with), went in our room, and we instantly felt better. First of all, this place (still here >>) has a mini-kitchen, a living room, a bathroom, and a room, so it feels like home. Secondly, we both went 24+ hours without a long, hot shower or TV or the internet or all the things we take for granted, so we were losing out shit. Lmao! Anyway, after settling in and having dinner that wasn’t in a can and eaten in the dark (*sobs*) we went to bed, intending to check out Wednesday morning whether or not the power was back to save money.

 

 

 Yeah… We didn’t go anywhere. Lol. That’s actually my fault. The change in environment made it really hard for me to sleep last night, so I probably got… two hours of sleep? We were about two hours from checking out and Mark was in the shower, so I decided to squeeze in a quick nap before packing everything thing. I wake up hours later, freaking out because it was way past noon, and Mark was like, “It’s okay. I added another day for us”. Thank you, mochi ! Naturally, I went back to sleep (lmao), and Mark got us breakfast/lunch/brunch/whatever while I was sleeping so… I cannot thank Mark enough. Seriously. Anyway, I eventually got my lazy ass up and joined Mark in doing the run around while we continued waiting out this lack-of-power ordeal. We checked up on baby cat (he pretty much ignored us lol), grabbed some more clothes, bought some things at Wal-Mart, walked around Best Buy, and then came back to the hotel to add another day since it didn’t seem like the power would return until the weekend. Or at least that’s what GA Power was saying. BUT–but–we got our power back! Of course, this happened like an hour after we added an extra day, but it is no biggie. We cancelled the extra day, so we’ll be checking out tomorrow afternoon and heading back home. Finally. I’m so homesick right now that it doesn’t make any sense. I can’t wait to go back home! 

 

 

 Well, that should cover my entire experience with Hurricane Irma. The TL;DR version is that I was mildly inconvenienced. Seriously. Three days without power is nothing compared to the people who died or lost loved ones or lost their homes or are still going without power right now. So, it goes without saying that I am extremely lucky. Whatever it is I bitch about here is tiny, trivial shit. I am fully aware of that. Just wanted to let that be known before I continue with some minor, pointless bitching I am about to do. So, time for the minor, pointless bitching that in no way compares to what others are enduring. Tomorrow when I go home I have to dump everything in my fridge. This is the part of the power outage that we were not looking forward to at all, but there is really nothing that we can do about it. The fridge will be cleaned out completely and then refilled with the essentials. Actually, there may be more than the essentials since Mark and I had this grand idea to have a tiny feast to celebrate several things. Coming through this hurricane unharmed, Mark getting a new job, our financial situation taking a major turn–these are all things that we wish to celebrate once we are back home and settled in. I already yelled “HAM” the moment we had this idea, so everything else is pretty much up to Mark. If there is a feast I will always have two questions: “Where is your ham? And where is your macaroni and cheese?” Lmao. Anyway, I look forward to it. I plan to spend all day cooking, and having plenty of leftovers for the next few days! It will be a good homecoming celebration–amongst the other things we want to celebrate. ^^

 

 

…Uh…I think that is it.

Sorry about the weird-ass format. I mentioned wanting to change it in the past, so I’m considering this image-friendly, colorful format with paragraphs instead of bullets. Of course, that all depends on how I feel. If I feel lazy then I will probably end up doing the same shit. What else…?

I think that’s it.

I hope everyone is doing okay. I’m very, very, very, very glad that my Florida and Georgia family and friends came through these hurricanes in one piece. I hope everyone else is doing okay, too.

Please, mother nature, no more hurricanes!

Weiss Kreuz Gluhen OP

Never seen this anime but this song is my shit.

(I’ll try to post more than songs I like, I guess.)

Avatars! Avatars! Avatars!

I’ll post a real entry soon but first… BUT FIRST… MORE AVATARS.

*My OCs are lame but I love them.

Edit: Forgot to add my boo, Aisne (lol). Also, another version of Odin.

Aisne

Odin_Dragon

Survey + Mythology = Yes!

I’m stressed out with added writer’s block. Time to answer cool questions! ^^

  • Aphrodite: What do you love most about yourself?
    Huehuehue~ I’m amazed by own skills sometimes (don’t look at me like that).
  • Apollo: Do you have any talents?
    A few. My main focus is always drawing though.
  • Ares: What small thing makes you angry?
    DON’T TOUCH MY STUFF. I WILL LOSE MY FUCKING MIND.
  • Artemis: What are you hunting for in life?
    A constant, reasonable level of inner peace.
  • Athena: What is/was your best school subject?
    … I aced biology. Like, I did better in biology than art. LOL. I don’t know why. I’m not really that interested in biology, but it sticks for some reason.
  • Demeter: Do you miss anyone?
    I always miss the people I adore.
  • Dionysus: Do you drink alcohol? If so, what’s your beverage of choice?
    Yes. If it’s fruity I will devour it whole and hate myself later.
  • Eros: How do you define your sexuality?
    I am attracted to personalities before anything else. Yes, I do find some people physically attractive, but they’re just eye candy. I can’t develop feelings for a person unless there is a genuine connection present.
  • Gaia: Where’s your favorite place in the world?
    Hmm… Anywhere that is quiet, isolated, and preferably with blankets.
  • Hades: Have you ever had a near-death experience?
    Yes. Now I’m pretty sure my own downfall will likely be clumsiness and/or bad luck.
  • Hecate: What do you think of magic?
    I wish on everything that it was real; however, there is no real evidence out there.
  • Helios: Do you sunburn easily?
    Not at all. I just get sweaty and temporarily darker in the sun.
  • Hephaestus: What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever made or built?
    When I was a kid I used to build landscapes in shoeboxes, cut slits at the top, draw random characters, cut them out, tie those characters to strings, and make these little puppet shows. I’m sure I made better things over the years, but thinking of those little puppet shows always makes me smile. I was so precious ( T w T ).
  • Hera: Are you the jealous type?
    No. If I have time to get jealous then I have time to improve.
  • Hermes: Have you ever stolen anything?
    … I thought I was being cool as a kid by stealing Spice Girl lollipops. Not cool at all.
  • Hestia: Where’s your home away from home?
    My car…? LOL. I don’t know. Home is home. Nowhere else makes me as comfortable.
  • Hyperion: Do you prefer sunrises or sunsets?
    Sunsets.
  • Hypnos: What was your most recent dream about?
    All I remember is Tom Hiddleston(sp?) asking me to recommend a place for him to stay because he was new, and I kept taking him to random places in classified ads that all ended up being comically horrible. LOL
  • Iris: What’s your favorite color palate?
    Pastel blues, pastel pinks, pastel purples–mainly those.
  • Kronos: What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever eaten?
    Ah, who knows. I’ll shove just about anything in my piehole as long as it’s edible.
  • Nemesis: What’s a time you helped deliver justice?
    Um… I guess when I did jury duties?
  • Nike: What’s your most recent accomplishment?
    I beat Persona 5! Whoo! This is huge for me because I never actually finished a Persona game. The closest I got was the final boss of P3 and then my memory card got corrupted. ^^
  • Nyx: What’s your favorite nighttime activity?
    SLEEP. …And video games.
  • Pan: What do you do for fun?
    Too many things. I draw a lot. I write a lot. I live on YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and PS Vue. I play a whole lot of video games. I go to the movies regularly. I do plenty of shopping, online and offline. I just keep myself busy and spoiled as often as possible.
  • Persephone: What’s your favorite season of the year?
    Autumn. A nice, rainy autumn day… I could cry right now… especially thinking of this sticky, cocksucking heat outside. ( ; u ; )
  • Poseidon: What’s your favorite sea creature?
    * ALL OF THEM. SEA CREATURES ARE THE BEST (after cats). But if I had to choose only one I would choose jellyfishes.
  • Rhea: What’s your favorite type of nature?
    … Type of nature? I’m not sure what that means. I guess I’ll just choose an aspect of nature that I like. I like forests.
  • Selene: What’s your favorite phase of the moon?
    Waning crescent.
  • Tartarus: What’s your personal hell?
    Being surrounded by countless strangers who are all talking about banal, shallow crap and touching me. I… would choke myself to death… ^_^
  • Thanatos: Is there anyone you just really, really hate?
    I don’t hate anyone. I do hate irritating-ass tendencies though.
  • Uranus: What are your zodiac signs?
    My star sign is Cancer. My Chinese zodiac is fire rabbit. …That’s all I really know. When we start getting into sun/moon/whatever rising then I am completely lost.
  • Zeus: What do you think about thunderstorms?
    Great! Send more!

 

*sigh* I’m going to get some ice cream.

Moonpools and Caterpillars – Heaven

tumblr_ne45hkPjna1r5ps77o1_500

I believe in Heaven and know
That I should just accept it all
So content with the paths that I walk on
Surely I should see it all

So take care and don’t go too far, I will miss your soul
And when the distance grows and the nights are long
And you’re scared at times and you wonder why
Take care and don’t go too far, I will miss your soul

I’ve looked into the sky one hundred times
And I’ve seen the stars that shine so bright
And I’m sure that one of them is you, my friend
Watching and waiting and hoping that I’ll be alright

So take care and don’t go too far, I will miss your soul
And when the distance grows and the nights are long
And you’re scared at times and you wonder why
Take care and don’t go too far, I will miss your soul

I believe in Heaven and know
That I should just accept it all
So content with the paths that I walk on
Surely, surely, surely I should see it all

So take care and don’t go too far, I will miss your soul
And when the distance grows and the nights are long
And you’re scared at times and you wonder why
Take care and don’t go too far
The road back home is shorter than you know

The road back home is shorter than you know
The road back home is shorter than you know
The road back home is shorter than you know
