Speaking of Robot Camp, we've heard back from a couple of shows for the season! (When I talk about our convention season I'm generally referring from beginning of spring until whenever MICE happens that year, because it seems to be the last indie show on the east coast and because half of us are local and/or involved in organizing it.) So far, we know we'll be at MeCAF in Portland, ME (6/17), and at SPX in Bethesda, MD (9/16-17). Our name's in the pot for MICE in October, but they are getting swamped in applications, apparently; I'm super proud of them but also nervous for us, haha. I have at least three books/projects that'll be debuting this season, but I don't want to talk about them right now because it's stressing me OUT. That'll have to come next time I remember to write a blog post (and after these freaking deadlines!).
Alright, the last Big Update of the night: I'm finally moving back to New York! It's been a little over three years, and I'm totally ready to be back in my goddamn heart-home. No offense to Boston - it took me in when I was floating around with no idea what I was doing and helped me figure out my shit - but hot damn is it slow here, or at least not fast and busy and crowded enough for my taste. Now, I always figured I would be getting back to New York eventually, but the reason for this particular timing is that I'm going back to school. Yyyyup, gonna finish my degree this year, because there's a master's program I want to attend but I'll need that bachelor's first. I don't relish the prospect of being a full-time student for another eight months - that feels like a phase of my life that ended a while back - but hey, I'll do it. I'm going to miss having a studio; I definitely won't be able to afford a working space separate from my living space back in New York, haha. I find it hard to get myself into an undistracted work mode at home, so I'm going to have to cordon off an area across the room from my bed and build myself an impenetrable wall made of bedsheets or something.
Guys, does this read like a diary entry? I feel like it kind of does, whoops. I mean, then again, that's basically how I've always treated blogs. A public diary. Anyways, that's it. The end. Back to work. ✌️✨
