Greetings, Earthlings and Martians in disguise!
More cover work was this week's job. Marie sent over a bunch of cover designs. I'd post them, but I need to see if I need permission from Spencer Hill to do so since they are their designs. However, I will say the ideas they've sent over are awesome. They're all bits and pieces photoshopped together with weird figures representing certain parts, but they hold promise. There's some designs I really like, and I've found a font style I hope to use.
One thing I'm worried about is my own cover idea. I sent it to Marie, but she hasn't said anything about it. Probably should send her an email to see if she got it.
Now, Weekly (Dis)Likes! It's rather light again.
Like 1: I got a haircut this week, and the stylist told me she liked my hair. That's one compliment I'll never grow tired of hearing. I have thick, curly red hair that falls to my shoulder. Sometimes it's a hassle when it gets frizzy or messy, but it's my favorite physical feature about myself.
Like 2: My grandparents came over for dinner tonight. Grandma was looking well, and we actually had real food for once (my whole family minus me is on some diet). It's always great to have them over. I don't know how it happens, but everyone, including me, gets so animated; we always have the funniest conversations that make us laugh.
Dislike 1: Speaking of diet, the aforementioned one is driving me crazy. It's a vegan diet my family's on, which means all wheat, no cheese, no dairy, gluten-free, little to no meat, all in the name of losing weight. Yes, my mom specifically buys regular food for me to eat, but she doesn't cook the foods she usually cooks
Dislike 2: Yearly political campaign commercials. It's a miracle I've lasted this long. Usually I start hating them the first time I see one. They've only gotten annoying just now, but I wish they were gone from my TV screen!
This week's quote fits this blog well:
