NEW KEYBOARD



i'm excited my partner got me a new keyboard, mouse, and headphones for xmas, its so pretty!  Mostly my keyboard worked but it was SUPER loud like typewriter loud it was only like a 5 dollar microsoft  keyboard. My mouse was also dying...it wasn't registering all left clicks it makes sense tho it was SUPER Old like someone gifted it to me used then i used it for like another 7 years it was a razer death addler it did its job well. i just reverted to my tablet when i was annoyed hahah I honestly wanted another razor set but i didn't ask for one cause it was so much more than this set. This set is made by red dragon ....it had good reviews!! why not i hope it lasts we shall see! its very fancy with rainbow colors! I FEEL LIKE I'M HAVING A DISCO PARTY!! It's suppose to be spill proof too? we'll see about that when the time comes hahah  XD it came with headphones too which i needed as well cause mine omg my head phones were also so old they worked but they look hella beat up, they were sony mdr zxc100 they aren't even expensive ones i got like 11 years back! but they were good i would recommend them. I'll use them for walking or something instead of stationary computer headphones

INDIA

Long flight 25 hrs!? ugh my butt so sore!!!! my ankles swollen! T_T plus a 5 hour car ride from airport to where nag's family lives in a cramped hot car.. Driving in India is like playing chicken with everyone like are you going to go? OR ME?! WHO KNOWS!!! VRRRRRROOOOM!!! SPEED UP! STOP! WEAVE! HONK HONK!!! TRAFFIC SIGNS? use your driving intuition!!!! OH YEAH also our roads are super bumpy and narrow! cause whatever! LOL while i'm  hanging on for dear life watching the road to prevent me from feeling more queasy! @_@ lol then I look over and there's like a whole family of 5 on a motorcycle. 

this was the second time I've gone to India, the first was for our marriage in India in 2015. Nag's family is super sweet i got to hang out with them the whole time, i didn't really go anywhere or do any tourism. mostly the only tourism in India is temples and shopping? i'm not a fan of shopping even in america so its cool and nag is not very religious. LOTS OF CHORES!!! i had to wash laundry by hand which i quickly hated!! I would wash dishes outside by a faucet with a bucket, that or i was watching the kids. Much of Nag's distant relatives live in this village his aunts and uncles on both father and mother's side, siblings of his grandparents, as well as 3rd and 2nd cousins. The internet was very spotty and power would go out randomly at their home! but their home was really nice because of Nag, he is a good son, he recently paid to remodel his parent's home so if you contrast his home to some of the neighbors homes his home is very modern by India standards! actually this remodel was the first time his parents had a faucet! before they only had a hand water pump for all the water needs around the house.

 His Amma and Nana (mom and dad in telugu) own two buffalo and one goat, and lots of chickens, which they killed one for one of our meals lol I didn't eat it...i dunno if everyone in america had to see the animal before you eat i think a lot of people would eat a lot less meat!!! but honestly the chickens are happy there they run around free, jumping on the houses, barns, roads, nesting, they only go home to eat and sleep under baskets! so if you gotta live and die somewhere i think India is a great place for a chicken! They wanted to kill the goat for goat curry and Nag and I said no that's ok!! lol they walked it like it was a dog! i just couldn't!  My later years i've just kinda shifted to more vegetarian foods, i've been on slow shift away from meat i only eat it once it awhile or if someone else makes it but i don't buy it at the grocery store. Nag's sisters are so busy and hard working they are both excellent cooks i ate so much good food and tried so many dishes i've never had before! I learned lots of new telugu words and new recipes! Everyone was so excited to see vik since that was the first time he had been to India. I only saw 3  non Indian people while i stayed one time i went to Vijayawada and i saw some tourists walking around but they were all male. When i did go out i got lots of stares haha. It was pretty hot and i had to dress pretty conservative by american standards which is fine but sweaty me hahah O_o honestly i really don't wear Indian traditional clothing often i only wear for special occasions or on their request...i feel like i shouldn't wear their national dress? plus i have hard time draping a sari and making it look good...BESIDES i wanna be ME i wanna be weird american artist MICHELLE!  which by the way they only called me Vadina which means sister in law in telugu, I tried to get them to call me michelle but its a pretty much a tradition to use titles vs. an individual's name 

 
Diwali 
made friends with a street dog, who i saved scraps for and it kept coming back to receive free food but the neighbors didn't like it they threw rocks at it :( dogs are very different in India they are scavengers, you see them starving, tick infested, some have skin diseases, puppies wandering in the streets!! sad, but in India the buffalo, cow,  goats, and chickens are more important pets to them those animals they take very good care of.  I also saw some stray cats but cats only come out at night they are very hard to spot but people don't keep them as pets they are hunters and scavengers like dogs...Its rare for people to have cats and dogs as pets in india.


I also noticed how little bookstores there were and how comics are like non existent there ? maybe i'm looking in the wrong places but it made me feel like what am i doing with my life?!

vacation entertainment

 some stuff i was thinking about over my vacation and entertainment i consumed....
________

Social media in comics

Love interest in this comic is social media star

Edith  by swansgarden
 features a main character who is a nerd in highschool that turns into a social media star with large following besides the subject matter the style of the comic was really cute i like the pointy noses

 the inclusion of text sms screenshots is another rising trend used to move the narrative along, i think small doses of text screenshots is acceptable but long conversations or heavy story telling shouldn't be done like this, personally i find this format is very boring to read...and tends to pull me out of story
_______

TOYS THAT COME ALIVE!!!

Skipping around a bit but i read Corduroy by don Freeman I forgotten the story but rereading it I must have enjoyed this story as a kid cause it wad so familiar and the opening page is similar to the intro of my comic paperdoll.

corduroy, Winnie the Pooh, raggedy anne & andy, and The velveteen rabbit probably inspired Toy story and before that The nutcracker or Pinocchio i am sure one could trace this concept of toys come to life further back



 This part is creepy like chuckie if I was that watchman I'd run for my life those eyes....lol but as a kid this was not scary totally normal
________

Best comics i read over my vacation! 
recoil had EXCELLENT coloring and the characters were diverse and well designed! the story was interesting too! can't wait for more! 
this is the same artist as taproot and i'm a big fan of their story telling style! they are good at making stories! :D
combine gangsters and dinosaurs meets the land before time wow this comic at first i didn't like it and thought it was very outlandish but soon found that was the joy of it! and the story was well constructed and illustrations were well made!! READ IT
a disney princess fan comic normally i would gaze over this but they did some bizarre stuff with the characters i was like hey this is creative and cool! :D 

________

PHILOSOPHY
I spent a lot of time watching philosophy videos,
note taking key concepts, and reading about certain thinkers
Here are some of my favorites

__________
Best movies I watched on the plane

Sorry to Bother You
Wow i really enjoyed this heavily with symbolism and related to alternative modern reality. I felt the story was trying to make a comment on big companies like amazon and the effects of you tube on society and how we consume entertainment, as well as a big theme of slavery, the dangers of redefining a tool!! ALL i can say is holy shit....it was really good and i loved the artist character and how she challenged the problems in the main characters life. The girlfriend was a fun inner critique in the story! also the last third of the movie really threw me a  loop like I DID NOT EXPECT IT it took a serious turn for the dark side!!!! and I"M GOOD at guessing endings!! but not when writing is good! I loved how the ending so much! so creative, ahhhh I LOVED THIS MOVIE
Secret Superstar
I watched this cause the main character reminded me of my own book i'm writing and i like to read or watch other stories like mine to get inspiration to see how they end the story...i cried at the end of the movie on the plane lol this story got me so emotional I love how they tied this girl quest for music, with her mother, and her family life! AHHH the ending message was beautiful! 
Shape of the Water
I finally got around to watching this i've heard lots of good stuff about it! very cute take on lochness monster, fairy tale, love story! ahhh it was a refreshing spin on mermaids too :P I really enjoyed the choice of main character as well <3
