A submission from pocketsthelesbian, who I have to thank for submitting this because I went to class warm and waited for the bus afterwards in cold weather.
A thanks to sketchesthecat for this submission!
Have you ever had online pals from Florida who say they’ve never seen snow before and you try to imagine not ever seeing snow, so hard, that it makes you angry because you can’t imagine it?
Somehow, I turned my back and the blog reached 1,136 followers and it was at 900-somethin last time I looked. Wow! This is surprising but pleasing!
I feel like it calls for a celebration and I’d do a giveaway if I had anything to give away. But I’m a poor loser college student, so I don’t.
Thanks for the follows, though! No idea where you came from but you’re all welcome here.
There have been people posting on instagram and what-not talking about swimming/playing in the flood waters.
There have been deaths from these floods, please do not play in the water.
Stay safe and dry, my fellow Coloradans. I’ve been soaked through twice the past two days while heading to/from work and class. If you don’t absolutely need to leave the safety and protection of shelter, stay put! Read a book, play some games if you don’t have knocked down power lines, draw, watch a movie - just don’t go play in the flood waters.
Hey friends, I am pleased to see a good amount of you still here despite the fact that I dropped off the face of the earth for a while (a good number, too, 933 thank you for staying).
Reassuring you that indeed, I am not dead! As it turns out, my coworker at my job had told me they followed YKYFCW and then unfollowed during activity drop because they though I had died or something. I am no ghost. I am here and ready to post.
Which reminds me, I do have good news for all of you that have been waiting a good year to hear it:
I have a job, and I have a computer. I am a little busier, but it will be easier to post here now that I can work from my own computer again.
By the way, if you didn’t already know, I am looking for co-admins to help me run YKYFCW. The blog has grown quite a bit. If you’re interested, let me know!
Also, because I love good ol’ CO a whole lot and I am an artist (which you will be seeing when I pop out some CO merchandise to buy if you’re interested), I started a Colorado artists blog some time ago. It features not just people who can draw or paint, but photographers, musicians, dancers, actors, and writers as well. It’s the works. Art isn’t just limited to drawings, after all.
Colorado Artists is an ongoing project, and I am testing the waters and still smoothing it out. Eventually I’ll get it running how I’d like it to go, but for now it is a baby. Have mercy on me while I work out the kinks. If you’re interested, head on over and check it out! We’re also adding people to the critiquers list if you’re just interested in giving some people pointers on their work when they want it. It is a community effort and meant to bring Colorado artists together.
This has been a very long and windy announcement from your admin. Expect at least one update tonight. I’ll try to do more if I can, due to my terrible guilt over the stagnation of this blog.
