April's been full of projects. I'm working on a few pitches at the moment which are coming along well. We'll see how they go. Got some editing projects done, too, including a really cool comics script that I can't wait to tweet about once I'm able to.
Speaking of comics, on a complete whim, I've decided to go to Van Caf (Vancouver Comic Arts Festival)! It's May 23 and 24th in Vancouver, BC and it's completely free to attend so you should totally go if you're able to. A lot of super cool people are going to be there like Cat Farris, Ron Chan, Ben Dewey, Kel McDonald, Levi Hastings, and tons more. I'm not tabling so I'll just be walking around, checking stuff out and chatting with people. If you're there, send me a tweet!
I've started watching Game of Thrones with Kel McDonald. I've read all the books but I've never watched the show and she has the new HBO streaming service so we've been slowly marathoning it. It's so strange to watch, knowing what's going to happen and anticipating things. We just started season three. One thing I keep noticing is how a lot of the younger character's choices don't make as much sense now that they've been aged up for the show, especially Theon. He makes so much more sense as a confused fifteen year old! Oh, Theon. I have such conflicted and strong feelings about you. I never realized how strongly I felt about Tommen, either, as any time he comes on, I sigh and go, "My sweet summer child." I am, however, really sick of all the extra sex and violence. I mean, the books are dark but they really went out of their way to make the show worse, huh? All in all, I like it but I think I still prefer the books.
Avengers tomorrow night for me. Perhaps some favorite superheroes will cleanse my pallet. Plus, Agents of Shield has been so amazing this season, as silly as this may sound to some of you, I hope the movie lives up to the expectations AoS has given me. (I know a lot of the internet doesn't like AoS but I will fight to defend its honor. I love that show.)
May shall be a busy month. I've got VanCaf and the day after I get back, I fly out to Texas to visit family for a week. It's been a few years since my old annual summer Texas trip and I'm looking forward to it, despite knowing I had to factor in a sick day (the weather always knocks me out for a whole day, every time.) At least I get to see a lot of family and eat some good food, maybe even sneak in a day trip to Galveston. Any vacation is a good vacation.
