06:19 pm - I know this is late.
Midwest Furfest crept up on me this year. Hadn't really been anticipating it, so I ended up treating the convention more like a general vacation. I haven't been feeling particularly social lately, so I did lots of napping. Didn't really plan on meeting people there aside from my roomies, Leo and Derecho.

Unbeknownst to me, there were people attending who were actually interested enough to seek me out (kinda) and spend some quality time together. That was a an unexpected (and welcome) surprise!

I only busted out Scar at parties and the dances. Damn, I want a real fursuit.

09:06 pm - Really late post-AC post.
This Anthrocon was a bit different in several aspects. A few friends couldn't make it this year and I don't have very many to begin with. And you guys know me; I'm horribad at making new ones.

Though, I've taken a new approach to con-going. Instead of focusing on the social aspect, I take the trip like a general vacation from life and relax. The friends that I do have are scattered among different social groups so they're usually found hanging out with them. If someone expresses interest in hanging out with me, I'm more than happy to oblige but I'm not going to pour too much effort into finding people who are probably busy anyway.

As far as making new friends.. I think I may have given up. As much as I want to talk to someone I've been a fan of, every fiber of my being tells me to go away. Unless, of course, if they say hi first. I've been trying to fight this meek, passiveness in myself for years, but I can't get past it for the life of me.

The second half of that is that.. well, I just don't care to meet most people anyway. Past experiences with people have killed a large portion of my will to be social. A lot of people I've met recently would rather play a social facet than be a -real- person. I'm not going to delve much into that.. but it bothers me. I told Chance once, "There are good people out there. There really is. You just have to filter out all the bad ones first." I'm failing to follow my own advice. The ratio is just so.. so bad.

So, instead I did just what I wanted to do. I suited in Scar, worked out, danced, ate good food, commissioned Cooner (as always) and had fun. Though, I fear I may not be returning to Anthrocon. I'm debating whether or not the cost-to-fun ratio is worth it. Even if I leave the con feeling revitalized and inspired... it's expensive!

09:19 pm - Flattered.

Usually when I'm making bar drinks for the cafe and drive-through at the same time during a rush, I like to keep my head low and try not to look at the angry customers who are more than likely looking at the time or tapping their feet impatiently. I know if I acknowledge they're there, they'll acknowledge how slow I am and that they've been waiting a whole 5 minutes. I just try to bust out the drinks as efficiently as possible.
I called out a drink and made the mistake of making eye contact with the recipient, so I said, "Thanks!" like a good baristabot, hoping he wouldn't verbally abuse me in some way.

He opened his mouth to speak, so I prepared my, "sorry for the wait blahblahblah" spiel in my head, but what he said completely baffled me.

"Wow! You're so fast and amazing to watch! Thanks!"

That was completely unexpected.

10:41 am - Late post-con report.

I took a very different approach to Furry Fiesta this year. I just sorta did my own thing (aside from assisting Bauson with the table from time to time) instead of fretting over what to do or who to see. I realized that at any given time there are multiple things going on and it'd be impossible to do everything anyway.

Brought both Scar and Pokkit along, but I only ended up unpacking Scar, heh. It may be my secret passion of dressing up in skin tight costumes. Or not. Who knows? I did have a fantastic time dancing as Scar. I'm thinking I might go to the clubs this Halloween with it. I gotta badge from Dook for it too!

Had a pseudo-decent workout on Saturday before jumping into the pool. No one else wanted to swim with me! Those weird amine girl things were having a poolside photoshoot. I wonder if I photobombed them at all.

Didn't get sick! That's a plus. It was great seeing everyone and I can't wait for next year!

07:17 am - Happy new year!

For the past few years my new year's resolution was to go back to the gym. You know, for real. Not for play play.

But this year I'm already there!

06:13 am - Hm.

This morning I weighed in at 106. I think I'm going to change up the routine next week. Instead of splitting upper and lower body workouts, I'm going to try splitting pushing and pulling muscles. Fewer muscles to work each day so I can work them harder!

My parents reminded me that I probably won't get very far. The whole metabolism thing.. Everyone to ever exist in this family has been skinny etc. Supportive, huh?

I think it's safe to say I'm probably gaining a pound a month.. Or maybe a bit less. Is that normal? Or slow. Guh.

I'll probably post progress pictures again when I hit 110. Yeah I said 'when', not 'if'.

11:58 am - Progress!
I have to do this. I have to be able to reassure myself that my efforts aren't futile and that I am actually making some sort of progress. Going to the gym can be arduous and conflicts with a more social agenda. Though, I'm fortunate enough to actually enjoy the time I spend lifting. But from time to time, I still doubt myself. Progress is slow, and I never notice a difference anyway, right?

2006 (I think?) Probably around 86lbs.Collapse )

Spring 09, 95ish lbs.Collapse )

November '10, 103ish lbs.Collapse )

One of my coworkers is kinda touchy-feely. She happened to grab my arm for some reason and exclaimed, "Oh wow! You -are- getting bigger!"
