-that moment when you realize the year is halfway over already-
Wow. End of June.
Here we go. What have I been doing with myself?
Still plugging away on Say Uncle. Got about 2-3 more chapters done? Yeah, I’m not moving at light speed here and I still don’t know what I’m doing for the ending, but I’m hoooping to finish it sometime soon here.
Short stories. As always. The Blank Mastermind fanfiction obsession continues.
Brainstorming. For Mysterious New Project which cannot yet see the light.
In particular, things I’ve found/have been listening to have been:
Andrew Peterson’s music. (more details below but I went to a concert of his and he played some stuff I really needed to hear)
Solo soundtrack (John Williams and John Powell? Sign me up)
Aaaand other random songs including a Guardians of the Galaxy playlist.
In the book section of things, I read Holes (Awesome book I really loved) and the first book of The Ranger’s Apprentice (preeetty disappointed but I’ve been told it gets better).
And listening while mom reads Gordon Korman’s Titanic Trilogy aloud.
I read those years ago and still love them and am not over the character deaths.
Anyway, on to watch-y things.
So for Father’s Day, I took my dad to see Solo: A Star Wars Story. And I still need to write up a review, but quite possibly one of my new favorite movies ever and probably my favorite Star Wars. It was really awesome. And being the huge Han Solo fans me, my dad and my brother all are, we were all loving every moment. It was funny and had a good plot and was aLL ABOUT HAN SOLO. Despite the lack of Harrison Ford, it was awesome.
Voltron season 6 happened. And that was possibly the best written season yet. So much stuff happened. A lot of heartbreak. A non-cliffhanger ending, for once. Some resolution for poor Shiro and what the heck has been happening to him. Keith growing up and being awesome. In general, everyone else being awesome too. It was a good season and I’m excited going forward.
First few episodes of Gravity Falls. Mainly to humor my brothers. But hey, it’s actually not half bad.
Not exactly something I watched. But. Timeless got cancelled again and I am very sad.
Now for a few movies I’m really behind the times on, as opposed to the new releases.
Jurassic World. Which was the choice for my brother Peter’s 11th birthday (accompanied by Tiramisu because he’s classy like that.) And actually I liked it 100% better than I thought I would. I would even go so far as to say I liked it better than the original Jurassic Park? So sue me. The plot was a lot more engaging and there was a goal beyond “let’s just not get eaten”. I was more invested. (Of course it was very weird when the T-Rex just dosie-doed right back into his cage at the end instead of continuing on the path of destruction. But hey whatever.)
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Another Chris Pratt lead movie hey I didn’t make that connection until now. XD
But yeah. I liked this one a lot and really love the Guardians. ❤ It’s been on my list for a while to watch and ’twas not disappointing in the slightest.
New section! Things that have made me laugh this month.
[the life things]
Big event of the month was the OYAN summer workshop, which I attended with my sister Sprinklesquink and I cannot recommend highly enough. It was a spectacular week of hanging out with friends, staying up way too late, cosplaying, scavenger hunting, improving writing, learning things and addressing some hard things that had been bothering me (in the eerie way that quite a few things being talked about in the sessions helped me out.) I also had a Blank Mastermind fanclub there because of that being posted on the forum and there was an event of me dressing up as Wolfgang and reading a few chapters out loud so that was fun. -too much awesomeness to list here, we’d probably best move on-
I had a few days where I got to work concessions at a baseball stadium! It is very fun and I like it a lot.
Also it is very hot here. June in Missouri is not my friend. AC is a lifesaver.
We had a brief trip to Kansas City and stayed in an old church with modern decorations and it was interesting.
Oh yeah and I got my ears re-pierced. Hopefully they stay that way. (With an extra piercing on one side? The extra note of punk/pirate holds more appeal for me and I’m more motivated to take care of my poor ears now.)
Camp Nano. Sort of. I mean I just set a goal on the site so it’ll send me reminder emails and I’ll remember to write more of Say Uncle and hopefully get closer to the end by August/the OYAN novel contest. xD
Many more works at the baseball stadium are lined up and I’m excited about that. (I get to see the expensive 4th of July fireworks show for free mwahaha)
dYING IN THE HEAT
Mission Impossible: Fallout comes out this month as well and I’M PUMPED GUYS.
So that’s been my month.
How has your June been, my peeps? Talk to me in the comments!
And I shall see you all in July ❤

OH also I hit 400 followers.
Not sure where to put that so I’m just putting it down here for anyone who cares.
YOU GUYS ARE ALL AWESOME I’M OVERWHELMED
Wonderful wrap-up I really want to see Jurassic World soon 🙂
Yesss, it was pretty dang awesome. ❤ Can't speak for the new one? But the first was awesome.
I really have to catch up on your writing and I feel like a terrible human being for putting it off so long. But then I look at the mamothine pile of stuff I must do and start internally screaming. Anyway, your month sounds like it was awesome! and yes. Definitely yes. AC is a lifesaver.
xD it’s perfectly fine. I crank out a lot to keep up with if you have a life. And hey it’s sitting right around whenever you want to read. -pats-
Thanks! Yes, AC is wonderful.
I DIDNT KNOW YOU LIKED VOLTRON. I LIKE YOU EVEN MORE NOW ITS MY FAVORITE SHOW. Sorry, freak-out is over, THATS JUST AWESOME THO. Fun review!! I really liked Solo as well and can’t wait to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and M:I:6- Fallout *happy dances*
-scream- ANOTHER VOLTRON FAN YAY. Wasn’t that season just incredible though? augh.
MISSION IMPOSSIBLE YAS. You’ll love Solo. <33
Yes, Season 6 was awesome, but at the same time it almost killed me XD The Shiro vs. Keith part, tho. 😐
Shiro vs Keith was a risk to my health, man. I just about had a heart attack. As it was my heart got broken….
Same…….. But at least the ending was hopeful! XD
Yes! Finally not a horrible cliffhanger. xD
Oh you’ve been dying in the heat too? Cool. Or hot, as the case may be. I’m pretty sure I’d be dead if not for electricity and the wonderful inventions of fans and ACs. Summer is not my friend.
Awesome stuff. Looks like a very full life. My June’s been full, to put it mildly, but July looks to be even fuller, so I’m tryyyying to be thankful. 😛
So Andrew Peterson, eh? I haven’t heard tons of his songs, but he’s got some really great ones. Helpful for sure.
Also, Jurassic World and tirimasu. That. Is. Gold. Your brother is epic.
And your Oyan workshop time sounds amazing, plus you as Wolfgang? O.o This I need to see. XD
Also yay for 400 followers! That…is a lot of people. Wow. That’s great.
Ahh sounds like an awesome and very busy month!! I’m glad the new Star Wars movie met your expectations (I haven’t seen any😂 I know SHAME ON ME, but I love both those composers so I should check out the soundtrack?!) And that workshop sound like a lot of fun yayyyyy!! Good luck with Camp NaNo too!! I can’t decide if I’ll write in July?! Like probably, but I never manage to remember to sign up.😂
Yes it was an absolutely awesome month. xD
(sHAME. you must see star wars, how can you call yourself a writer if you haven’t seen the classics? okay but absolutely check out the soundtrack it’s epic and awesome for writing.)
Yeesss it was wonderful.
-salute- best of luck with your writings in July! xD
