Seriously though, how is it February already?
So much has happened this month, here are a few highlights.
If you haven’t already seen I started a new Youtube Channel, QuirkNSpite! So far I have a bunch of shorts, both reposts from other social media and some originals, as well as some originals. I have been making some meditation and background videos as well. I am constantly looking for long mixes on YouTube to just play in the background while I work, so I figured, why not make some for myself? You can find my most recent one here, Take a Nap with my Cat, though I might re-balance the audio and re-export it. TBD. I am going to try to post a new one of these videos every two weeks (I had wanted to do weekly, but I realized there just isn’t enough time.)
Why isn’t there enough time? Cause I started a new contract at Atomic Cartoons just over a week ago. I am super excited to be joining the team over there as a Production Coordinator! But I don’t plan to stop with any of my other plans. If anything I plan to blog more often, post more videos, and eventually get back on the bandwagon of prescheduling some social media posts, and finally finish organizing my rebrand. So, please subscribe and be the first to see my new (and old) videos. Cause seriously, I have 10 years of untouched archives and I *really* need to finally do something with it. And the best thing about being creative, is it makes me feel even more creative. Definitely more ideas than time in a day, or possibly a lifetime, but I am still going to try to do as much of it as I can. Just one thing at a time.
Redbubble is having a 20% off sale, so if you were thinking of grabbing some stickers, a hat, or even a new bag NOW IS THE TIME!! If you haven’t checked out my Redbubble shop yet, Check it out! I have stickers, hats, and some more affordable shirts and tights (though I can’t say the quality will be as high as the clothes on the original Flowers & Fuck Off online store. If you want a sneak peak as some of the print on demand stickers, check out these videos I posted: Stickers 1 and Stickers 2.

Daniela taught me almost everything I know about Script Supervising, and she is an amazing teacher and human overall. She has an ever increasing catalogue of courses including topics such as Comedy Writing and building up your creative Dream Team. Not only are the courses amazing, but she has also built a robust community of creatives who actively support each other. When you sign up for one of Daniela’s courses, you’re probably gonna end up with a lot of new contacts as well as knowledge.

January ended up bring a great month for photography, and I am hoping to invest in a full frame camera soon and hopefully up my game over all, but until then check out this months photo montage on YouTube. I also started getting some material in my Photography gallery here, so check out my January 2023 Photo Gallery Page!
I feel like I have more to say, but I also feel like I have lost 99% of readers by this point, so though I have more things to come but I’m not going to say too much yet. So I guess, you’ll just have to keep coming back?
