So this week I took a few days and visited my childhood home again, but this time to see my other nephews. I have three brothers, one blood, one half, and one adopted. This was my full blood brother’s family.
Well, I’ve officially started the next semester of my continuing college experience. This semester I’m taking two classes (fancy). I’ve got Conversational Spanish I, and Drawing II.
Ever since I was little I was a furry. I just didn’t know it. I wish I could be better about this, but in reality, I just keep it to myself. It’s my special thing, and I’m very careful who I let in.
So, I went to my friend’s going away party. He’s moving to Seattle to work at Amazon. Pretty neat. It was an interesting party because the only person we knew going in was my friend. I met him about ten years ago when he worked at GameOn at the mall. That store doesn’t exist anymore, but it was interesting. We actually met a few people, and it was nice. We talked about all sorts of things, and of course, Maus impressed with his huge body of knowledge as usual.
Identity is a funny thing. What exactly is an identity? Is it your personality? Is it how you look? Is it who you think you are, or is it who everything thinks you are?
Today I went to the Peach Festival in Fort Collins. I saw a robotics booth there! It was awesome. In other news, I started drawing again in preparation for my Advanced Drawing Class (Drawing II).
I made a video testing the moving jaw in Isaac Homebrew’s head. So far it looks like things are perfect! There’s going to be a little more shaping in the back and sides, but it’s pretty close to done.
Maus actually drew a couple views of Isaac before I started constructing him. I didn’t quite get them up though because they were drawn on traditional media and not imported into the computer. However, I managed to take some photos of them (as opposed to scanning them in) so I thought I’d post them here.
So, I’m working on Isaac Homebrew. I’ve never actually made my own fursuit head all by myself. I’ve always had help cutting and shaping the foam. Well, my help is not available in a...
Last Sunday, Maus and I held an Excel Saga viewing with one of our female opera friends. Excel Saga is hard to describe, it kind of needs to be experienced. Make sure you watch...
A while ago, when coming back from the Vocal Arts Festival that Maus was in, we took a detour to the Denver Aquarium.
So, Maus and one of our female opera friends decided we’d go try this new place in Fort Collins out. It’s probably not new at all, but it was new to us. Maus and I discovered it when we were taking our walk to the Dazbog, (actually more expensive than Starbucks!) just a morning constitutional, not to actually buy coffee. It’s simply called Ramen, as far as I know.
“Rose, what I’ve forgot you’ll never know.”
I’m making a new fursuit. I hope to have it finished as soon as possible. It’s name is Isaac Homebrew. Isaac is an engineer extraordinare! You can tell from his glasses. Here’s a digital sketch of him from the front.
Several weeks ago I visited my childhood home (my parents still live in it, in fact, my father built it). I visited it but not only so that I could see my parents, but also so I could see my nephews.

Nothing ever seems to lead anywhere. I lay on the couch every night, anxious, trying to think how I can use my strengths to change my life. And I come up with nothing. Am I afraid of failure? Am I afraid of success? I don’t feel like I’m afraid of anything. The more I think about it, I don’t think I feel anything at all.
No, no, not those kinds of shots. I was able to capture a few more funny faces on Golden Girls.
This is a funny picture I shot when I was shaving. I don’t know if this is a 70’s style, or what decade it belongs in, but… doesn’t it fit me? Heehee. Obviously, I didn’t keep it.
Is there beauty all around us? Even atheists have transcendental experiences. Being open to experience the world, experience life in the raw, is the key.
