I appreciate my mother going out of her way to remove this comic from the newspaper and give it to me.

You know what's neat? The little positive things people do for each other because they've been ingrained in so many of us. Like saying "bless you" after someone sneezes, or holding the door open for someone else, or giving someone presents just because they were born on that day years ago. There are so many little ways people are just cool to each other.

Have I mentioned my school's library is super pretty? One benefit about being on campus all day is getting to spend hours here. It's also absolutely ginormous and I still sometimes get lost, which is the opposite of a problem.

Even though I've been following politics for years (for many of them as part of my job) the toxicity in today's environment still surprises me -- not to mention the frustration and utter pointlessness of debates. Any time I'm in a discussion, the other person just goes, "Nope, fake news" to anything that doesn't say what they want. I had one guy offer me a pixelated, uncropped screenshot of a picture from his phone as a source, but five separate, fully detailed reports of my own weren't enough to dispute anything. Just fake, biased news. Many people have always dismissed anything that doesn't fit with their world view, but now it seems like every single person I encounter.

Not to mention the desire to see the other side lose that trumps all else, no pun intended. Like with the Oroville Dam issue recently, people were saying California deserved it because it's liberal, Trump shouldn't provide any aid, etc. They'd watch total strangers lose their homes or worse because they live in a liberal state. Some of these people would set their own homes on fire if someone they disliked would suffer for it. So all this news of scandal and everything doesn't matter; so long as we win and they lose, the train can keep going right off the cliff.

There just doesn't seem to be a point to being involved at all apart from staying informed. It's extremely frustrating. I've enjoyed discussions with people from all over the spectrum for a long time, but I don't know if that's even possible anymore. At least not online. Blah.

Obligatory first post of the semester. Campus is weird at 3am, but look! Parking!

If I can write 15,000-20,000 words in the next 24 hours, I can finish up part one of Ghost Walk before school starts. In theory, not such a lofty goal. I have my outline, a box of chocolate, and insomnia.

What's more interesting than photos of my own cat? A lot of things Photos of someone else's cat. She seemed a little skittish at first, but once I pulled out the camera, she started posing. Look at that face. She knows.

This is a little awkward. I kept saying I couldn't do print versions of my books because reformatting them all and getting cover art was a lot of work, and since Amazon didn't do print books, it wasn't worth it. Now guess what service Amazon has decided to offer?

So for anyone who may have been interested, all my books now come in print form as well, as will all future ones if Amazon keeps this up. I got proofs today and they look pretty nice. Links below since Amazon is still processing stuff.

One more, featuring one of the few walls in the district that wasn't covered in designs.
