So just a quick update on what I’ve been up to, as it’s now obvious that I haven’t been updating daily as promised.  I’ve actually been busy :O, and summer is actually beginning to feel draggy.  Looks like I’m not the only one who’s lazing around–summer is, too.  

This week, I’m sailing.

That’s right, sailing.  No, putting on a floppy hat and some sandals and hopping into one of those little motorboats does not, in fact, count as sailing.  This is the real deal–two sails and a buncha ropes that look super confusing and that you can easily tangle yourself in (trust me, I know).  I’d say that’s the hardest part; rigging the boat properly so that you don’t capsize when you’re sailing.  Once you’re out on the water, though, it’s smooth sailing (haha, pun-y), and when the wind picks up and you gain speed, it’s actually a lot of fun.  Being too young to drive, it’s great to feel like I’m in control of something, especially something like a sailboat, which is, I guarantee you, far more complicated than a car to get a hang of. 

The downside of sailing: the SUN.  I don’t know what on earth happened with that thing, but it was extra extra extra bright today and I–apparently–did not put on enough sunscreen.  So I burned my face, and now I look like a beet 😦  Which sucks.  So if any of you are planning to sail, or go out in the sun at all, wear some good sunscreen.  For your sake. Please.

Oh, and before I go, here’s a piccy I finished recently.  It’s….well I like it.  The proportions aren’t great, but I like it.  So tell me what you think ^_^

Kayy, I’ll post again soon.  Promise.
