Today was another sketch meetup. I alsot didnt make it because I had to get the bus hours in advance and woulve had to wait 45 minutes until the time of the meetup so instead I decided to catch the later bus and got there about half an hour late but it wasnt too bad. It was awesome cuz there were other ladies there. Anyways I made sure to eat before I left the house so I was full. I decided to draw a teacup. Its not perfect but I’ll add a photo of it anyways. The Common Grounds Coffee shop was aweosme as usual and after they closed at 3pm and the owner gave us a card with punches for a free coffee we went to Starbucks and sat there and continued drawing. all in all it was fun except for the part where Starbucks locked their bathroom and when I asked to use it told me I had to buy something to use it to which I responded my friend bought something. That is the most ridiculous I’ve ever heard of in person. Anyways I had to charge my tablet so I plugged it in behind me. basically it was a great day.
Today I got up early to make it to Platos Closet for when they open to take part in the grab bag sale. I was the second person there when I arrived but by the time they opened there were like 20 people waiting. Anyways I went to accessories first when they opened then went to skirts and then the other bins. I got some good stuff but missed out on some skirts which was fine cuz I got some of them. I was pretty happy with how much I got by folding them and placing them in the bag. Anyways I had to send my mom some pictures to get some ideas of what to take and then finally I was able to cash out get some more punches on my card including an extra one that she gave me to be nice and then I went to Target to get pancake mix and then go home. The bag was pretty heavy cuz I had alot of stuff but I made it home in one piece.
Today I got a ride from James to go to Mini Iwai. I went to some of the panels once we got there including a film making panel and a few others. I took alot of photos of costumes and met up with Chantel once she arrived and we all went to Wendys for a second time to get food. Some of the group members had to leave early but we still all got to have alot of fun. matt was in costume which was cool. I was able to log into the wifi at the hotel we were at by asking one of the bartenders for the password. I got some contact info for the two female film makers and I also went to a largest pop group performance. Basically it was a fun day.
So today we took Kuma to get dewormed then after that we went home I picked up my package from the mail woman and then Matt came to pick me up and we were off to Sunrise Florida for a small fun thingie lol. On the way there we stopped at McDnalds and I used my coupon to get a signature burger. I got a burger with pico de gallo and guacamole. The burger was really good. Then we got to the event and we explored the anime art exhibit which had really awesome art work. After that we checked out the martial arts exhibition. It was mostly young people in their early teens and they did a really good job using different types of weapons and each having a segment where they did their own routine to really upbeat dance music. Then we checked out the vendors met up with some more people and checked out origami making classes and then the costume contest. I made sure to get alot of pictures of the costumes and other cool things including the artwork and food trucks. Also Crystal and Eric were there too. yay. All in all it was a fun day.
Today I went to a crafts meetup at Panera Bread. I got there first I believe and saw a woman working on beading a picture using a bunch of strings on a large loom type thing. She wasnt a part of the meetup but she used to go to other meetups in New York. Anyways Jess finally showed up and we all got food, I got my free birthday pastry, and then we all sat and ate and chatted. Sadly I was in a rush and also doing a survey. I had to leave early because I had a 2 hour survey session to do and so I left at like 6:30pm to catch the bus. I ended up leaving later than 6:30 cuz I was still talking to the members of the group and sadly when I got outside the bus was already driving away. I tried to catch up hoping it would have someone to pick up and or let off at the next stop but sadly it just kept going. The good thing is that the woman who was doing the pretty beading came outside as I was standing there trying to finish my survey and she aksed me if I gave up on the group already and I said no that I had to leave early and had missed my bus and she offered me a ride. She is Jewish and her name is Robin. She was talking about her doctor who didn’t want to write her a script to get an xray and that she had had surgery on her hip or something like. She also didnt have any kids but she liked kids. Anyways I was really happy that she gave me a ride. She was pretty nice to me and I was able to get home in time to start my session. The session didnt start until like 30 minutes later but I was happy that I didnt have to walk home so it was happy to get home early without having to walk to get there. Sadly the meetups are only once a month but I did have a good time and I loved the almond drop raspberry cookie and I was able to do my session afterwrads and submit it.
Today James and I went to see Wonder Woman he had a flu so Im really hoping I dont get it. I’ve been taking vitamin c since then. Anyways it rained the whole day so it was a good thing that James brought a large umbrella. Anyways we missed the beginning of the movie but what I did see was really good. Awesome day despite the incessant rain.
Today I went to the second sketch meetup at at cafe in delray. I continued working on my drawing from the plein air meetup. the meetup runner bought me a coffe and we all talked with the other woman that showed up then we went for a walk around downtown. Then afterwards Kat gave me a ride home and took my number so we could stay in touch. I was really happy to get a ride home becuse I wasnt sure the bus would be running on schedule because earlier at the tri rail station the bus left 9 minutes early even though its a marked stop in the schedule booklet. anyways I was able to hang out for a longer time because I got a ride home so I was pretty happy about that. I had known I didnt have any money with me so I made sure to bring a few snacks with including two pieces of guava cake and a banana. Yup I was prepared but sadly not prepared enough as after a few hours of drawing I was starving. But it was fine I got home and went to get a pizza and used a mcdonalds coupon to get some sandwiches. All in all it was a pretty awesome meetup.
