What is up everybody? I just finished winter break, so I'm back at work now (I work on a college campus so when school's out, work is out). Right now we are just going through a training/cleaning week, and it is pretty boring but not too bad.
My coworker surprised me with gifts today from christmas! It was so crazy, I had no idea that was coming. I got a beautiful Japanese tea set, and I am using it as we speak to drink an entire pot of matcha iri genmaicha. We were supposed to hang out over break, but she ended up not being able to, and because she felt bad about it she bought me a second gift to make up for it, which would be a lovely sake set. I can't even express how much I love these things. The sake set is lovely gray stone, and the pitchers are shaped like gourds c: I've wanted both sets for a long time, and suddenly here they are!
Other than that, I've been sketching a LOT over break, and also knitting and such. I will slowly post my sketches over the course of the week; I haven't done them all because I am lazy about uploading. I will also post some of my knit stuff, too, and show that off a bit. It's so fun~
As for video games, I started and finished Okami for the Wii in record time (for me anyway, I am a crazy slow gamer). It was a beautiful game through and through, I have never been so in love with style choices since I played Persona 3. Everything was just gorgeous; the music, the voice actors, the line work, everything! And it was so... culturally accurate, too. It made me miss Japan a lot. So now that that's beat, I'm playing through Dark Cloud 2, a game I had since high school, but lent to a friend for several years and only got it back recently. It's so fun <3
So let me hear about people's winter time fun activities of various sorts. How was it? Any snow? Any sweet and awesome presents or silly family stories?
