That time of Semester again, when I have to head-down-tail-up on all my projects. Especially this one – a multimedia ebook of the first part of one of my short stories. It’s projects like this that make me very, very grateful for my new laptop. My old computer was not fond of InDesign, let alone multimedia publication.
So, I’m on the mend, back in Sydney, and headed to the movies with some friends yesterday to see Civil War. Verdict? Solid film that somewhat makes up for the train-wreck of The Age of Ultron that makes me want to give therapy kittens and fuzzy blankets to all of the characters.
It was super fun to go out to the movies with friends – I haven’t had anyone to hang out with in a very long time, since my best friend from high school moved away, my best friend from childhood moved interstate, and all my other high school friends kind of ditched me when we graduated. So, yes, it was awesome. We’re tentatively planning on doing it again in a few weeks, when XMen: Apocalypse is released.
Today was meant to include a trip to Books Kinokuniya for Free Comic Book Day, but I arrived forty-five minutes before the store even opened, and the queue went right around the block. Like, along George St, past Topshop and right around to Pitt St. Not today, Satan. I can snag scans from the free comic books online, and buy my comics online. I was stunned, because last year it was chaos in-store, but there was no queue. I blame the addition of the Maid Cafe – the menu sounded delicious.
Now, I’m going to curl up with a bowl of udon and watch cartoons, because how else does someone in their 20s spend a Saturday night?
I am at home with the flu. Well, the end of a really nasty flu.
I also have tickets to Civil War. Gold Class tickets. Gold Class tickets that only cost me twenty dollars.
I cannot go.
This is the greatest injustice of the month, if not of 2016 in its entirety.
