Day 208.
2 years ago today I lost my dad to cancer. I was never close with my family, my dad especially. It’s just how we were. We didn’t entirely understand each other and that was ok.
My dad was always watching TV. He loved MASH, Leave It To Beaver, and Wrestling - things he’d always talk to us about over dinner. Maybe it was his way of bonding with us, but most of what he and my brothers talked about, I was just a little too young to have seen. 
Our last Christmas together (his favorite holiday, before we knew if would be our last) Serenity was playing on the TV when I came downstairs. He asked if I had seen it and when I told him no, he said I’d love it and should give it a watch and we spent most of dinner watching it in the background.
Tragedy struck and we all went to visit him and spent time watching stuff with him like WWE and Iron Man. Once he passed there wasn’t any life insurance, but my mom gave us each some money telling us to buy something that reminded us of dad. I used the money to buy Firefly and Serenity on Bluray, still having yet to watch it all the way through.
I fell in love with the show and movie. They let me feel like even though he was gone, there were still ways for me to feel close to him, even if they both left us before their time.

See you Monday.

I know he’s really proud of you. I bet he’d really love this. I wish I had known him better.

Day 217.
It’s not that we don’t love eachother and don’t cuddle very often -  we do! But sometimes it’s just easier to sleep on one side rather than the other.

More on Friday!

B) I love you!

Day 209.
Retail work forces me to get up way too early and leaves me in a cranky, murderous rage. Thankfully Kelly is a napper! If we didn’t fall asleep for a little while, I’m pretty sure I’d be in jail by now. Maybe I should nap more often.
———
I was running so late today and yet I still managed to pump this out in just over 2 hours. That is something I’m proud of. I need to start doing these faster anyway.
More Wednesday!

The Start of It All.
I love character line-up/walking things and figured it was high time I did one for mine. So I drew up the characters and background and enlisted  thekellybear to paint it all nice and pretty for me! I couldn’t be happier with the end result! She’s beast, check out her stuff if you’re unfamiliar.
The name comes from a Royal City Riot song of the same name. Something you should also check out.

I painted the background for my boyfriend! Hooray!! he drew everything and colored the characters.
