Hello! I have not been blogging much lately, mostly because I did not really want to and felt like my head was going to explode. My Spring 2015 semester of pursuing an MA in History sucked, partially because my classes were stressful (though I was getting straight As, which is cool!), partially because I had a very strange roommate situation, and, in the last chunk, partially because I was panicking over work stuff. All of that went by, and I intended to get back to blogging nicely, but last week, I broke a futon, thought I was going to lose my summer work for a very stressful day, and stabbed myself in the hand with a kitchen knife because I was trying to make a nice sandwich and had an unfortunate coughing fit while doing so. These things were also not conducive to blogging.
Things have gotten way better! I got a new, not campus-owned apartment with people I get along with, have a tuition waiver job next year and work for the summer, and, of my three classes next semester, have one on American feminist histories and another on using real historical methods to study Game of Thrones. From here, I should be able to blog a lot more.
Though I am blogging right now, I can tell you now that if you have requested something from me, I probably have not made it. My current desktop patterns to chart and post are, in terms of sprite patterns, some more stuff from Avengers: Age of Ultron and the equally popular Project Justice, a Dreamcast fighting game. Inexplicably, I also made a very nice portait pattern of Plucky Duck from Tiny Toons while I was throwing a mental snit fit about the internet's lack of Tiny Toons patterns. (I loved that show when I was a kid, so I felt it was necessary.) I also have a Walking Dead sampler I'm working on, because every well put together room needs a shout-out to Terminus, but I want to stitch that before I post it. There's also a lot of half finished stuff.
Anyway, I did not really want to post tonight, but I got sick of watching TV and wanted to accomplish something, so here I am! Tonight, I'm back to my Avengers rubbish, because I like making sprite patterns of characters from Marvel movies, with this super-impressive pattern of Falcon, who first showed up in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It's probably the best in the new round, so I'm wasting my grand finale here, but I don't care. Designing the wings and, suprisingly, the sunglasses for this pattern sucked, so I'm showing it off! Plus, I posted Bucky last, so I'm sticking with a theme, I guess. Here is the pattern!
