In a picture-sharing mood today! I was gonna share these in Random Images, but I noticed this thread and it's stuff I'm proud of, so it seemed appropriate!

After my friend got me into Gundam, he also got me into Gunpla (Gundam Plastic...models? I don't get Japanese portmanteaus). They're not perfect, but I put these bad boys together all by myself.




Also, I got some little army men, and I dunno, on a whim I decided to do a little customizing. Captain America is my favorite Marvel hero, so it seemed like a good match. Also the box, I used the box my new cell phone came in. I tried to black out part of the name, so it would like...classified stuff. Anyway, I'm happy with how it all turned out.  ;D

Wow, awesome, Opera! I salute you. Tiny fingers are hard as **** to paint, I remember when I used to paint D&D figures.

Don't give me painting credit! The only thing I painted was the pink beam saber! They come colored. I'm terrified to actually paint them.  :-[ That little Captain America is basically my level of painting talent right now.

But hey, that's part of why I love them; don't need to paint if you don't want to, don't need glue (but it helps), and then when you're done you've got an action figure with great articulation.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I wrote a play that drama society are putting on in less than two weeks. After doing at my university, we've been invited to perform it at York Uni.

Add that to the Prose module going well, spending Wednesday afternoon discussing a sitcom pilot in a pub and being asked by a media teacher to write something for the university's media magazine, I'm finally starting to feel like a writer, and that I'm not just saying it.

Thanks. I'm pretty proud of it. It's based on an old Russian fairy tale (The Fire Bird), and elements from a bunch of other Russian tales like Baba Yaga, and making the original story more magical and less repetitive.

It was going to be a devised piece with the youth theatre back home in summer 2016 or 2017, but the society president and director liked my description of the story so told me to write it in a couple of weeks.

Though when I'm director next year I'm not leaving as late as we did. Get it all sorted over the summer.

Well, I'm impressed.
Probably not a Goat, either.

So last night I won third place in a friendly dance competition. Super pleased because all I really wanted to do was get through to the final and I ended up placing. There may well be a video at some point.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Being a ****ing winner tends to do wonders for depression.

Having a physical outlet does a great deal in helping depression of any type.
