Holiday Cheer, 2016!

Post by Caprizant on 22nd December 2016, 5:48 pm

What are your holiday traditions? Expecting any exciting gifts this year? Talk about them here!



Personally, I'm really excited for one particular present this year: a Wacom Intuos Draw! Dunspach is Glory! It's gonna really help me develop my art in the next year. It's hard to really practice when you can't do variable line weight or anything. It's kinda tedious. :V

I'm getting an NES mini (list price mind you) a bunch of LEGO games including dimensions expansions, and some amiibo I bought for myself to give myself.


I need a life.

Sadly I'm not really looking forward to the "holidays." Maybe it's because I don't really have any presents to look forward too. I've already gotten the one present I really wanted (a new iPod shuffle). Just about anything else I really want is out of everyone else's price bracket. I'll be getting a gift card or two, as well as some pocket money.

I'm also being worked hard just about round the clock. This past Tuesday I worked longer than the sun was up. Clocked in at 6:30, left at 7:30. Got a call from my boss a few hours ago asking if I'd work tomorrow morning to just after noon and I agreed. Now Saturday I do get off an hour early at 4:30, if not sooner due to lack of workflow. We've been so busy this week, though my boss expects it to slow down tomorrow afternoon as most people should be leaving town by then.

Now I am looking forward to more frozen weather. I found the ice storm to be an enjoyable challenge and thinking back to last winter, I had fun just driving to work. Maybe it's because to drive in this type of weather requires more skill. Though before I get too playful, I really want to know if it's legal to use chains in Virginia. Don't want to get myself into a situation I can't get out of.

On the topic of giving, I bought my sister Project Mira DX. She was thrilled when she unwrapped it and has been playing it nonstop since. It's an adorable little game actually.

On the flip side, I got another $50 gift card, and a $20 gift card to Dominos. I'm reconsidering putting in that Back Rack. This nicely covers most of the cost involved with getting the components, which only begs the question if I want to spend the time to get it done.

My Christmas consisted of a ton of mission stuff.
Spoiler:
For instance, I now have my own hair dryer and straightener, to use during the mission. I also got a little speaker and an iPod Shuffle, because I'm not supposed to access the Internet and I am not allowed to use headphones or earbuds. I got some socks, boots, a doTerra oils box, a bag to use during my mission, and a temple bag. So those are all great and will be useful in the upcoming months!

Things unrelated to my mission included
Spoiler:
a nice hot chocolate set thing from Valk, a drawing from Snazz, and some earings and a necklace from my brother! Valk also got me a ring I can wear during my mission-- it's a "CTR ring" (Choose The Right) and it is written in Hylian! So that's super cool and really pretty! (I teared up to be honest) I got candy in my stocking, a cute little sketchbook, some more earrings, and more hot chocolate mix.

So, overall, for me it wasn't exactly a very "exciting" Christmas in terms of gifts, but I really enjoyed it anyway! I was very hyped for Christmas this year because of what I could give!

I gave Valk an iTunes gift card and some Pokémon cards with a Rayquaza keychain.
Snazz got the first Trials of Apallo book and the Good Mythical Morning 1000th episode commemorative coin.
My other sister also got a vanilla giftcard that she can spend to buy yarn, haha!
My brother got a Steam gift card from me and my dad got a World of Tanks Giftcard. (I didn't want to send something too big because they're overseas)
I got mom some earbuds and new kitchen shears!

And of course I participated in the gift giving during the Steam sale this year, and did a Secret Santa on Tumblr. I meant to do more art, but time is running low, you know?


ALSO
Congrats on the art tablet, Caprizant!

I just learned that my sister got a cosplay accessory in the box for Project Mira, which I never expected, having paid only $30 for the game.

It's the odd loop thing on Miku's hip, does anyone know what it is or how it's generally worn? Miku's art generally has it clipped in somewhere in her skirt and I've seen similiar accessories before:
