Hurt muh bones
Ate shit while skateboarding and sprained my right ankle and arm. Been out of work for a week and recuperating. I think my arm might actually be fractured, but I can still move around and thankfully draw and type. I want to take the opportunity off of work to practice with my tablet and learn Blender (as opposed to Maya, which I know a lot more about). It's going to be a pain in my ass to relearn 3D in a completely new program, but its capabilities are growing SO much, it's free, and it does the kind of art that I want to do. So, I'll learn. I hope everyone had a good Halloween. I binge watched scary movies with my fiance, binge ate chocolate, and binge sat trying to rest my injuries haha.
In more recent and personal news, yesterday I had the most wonderful day. I was able to sleep in, got a little further in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon (as well as Hades, a truly great game), and my mom came over to help me out. She really put the work in. She made her awesome chicken soup that she makes around this time every year to make sure none of us get the flu, as well as garlic bagels (and did my dishes, bless her). Once my dad was off work, he came over for dinner too! That was a pleasant surprise. We put on Over The Moon, a Netflix animated musical that just blew me away. Mom passed out before the opening credits (she was exhausted), and Dad kept poking fun at story tropes in the movie. There was a point where I had the captions on because some of the names and pronunciations were Chinese so I thought it would help, and my dad leaned over and says, "Do we need the captions on? It's not like I'm hard of hearing." So I turned them off, and not five minutes later he leans over and says, "What'd that guy say?" And I laughed my whole ass off. We had JUST turned the captions off, are you serious!
After dinner, my parents left and I saw I had a call from my big brother. I called him back, and the noise on the other line was RAUCOUS. He, his wife, and his two kids were in the middle of a Super Mario game. Practically the first thing that was coherent that I could pick out was, "We're coming over to your island!" And, before I knew it, I was leading my niece around my Animal Crossing island showing her my fun things, while my nephew baby-babbled to me over the phone about his Halloween (he was Spider-Man) and sang This Is Halloween to me. My sister-in-law had the most put-together house on their island; naturally the whole family has a house. And my niece's house was very much a dollhouse, and that's just about the cutest thing ever.
And then, once all was said and done, I soaked long in a bath, my fiance came home, we watched Death Note, and then I fell asleep drawing (also we banged nice) and I practically had the best day ever, despite being injured.
TL;DR: I love my family.
All the best,
