September

September is almost over and fall is definitely here now. I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte.
It was a busy month since I'm writing my final paper and it's due in two weeks. I'm doing okay but it is a lot of work. I was conducting some interviews for that paper and that got really stressful.
To distract myself I used my favorite coping strategy - dice hoarding. I reinked a bunch of dice since that doesn't take long and is great for taking a break from writing. 
It also was Mr. Biests birthday. We had a nice party with a lot of friends at our apartment. 
And the birthday of one of my D&D characters. Yes I celebrate my characters fictional birthdays - what you gonna do about it?! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

#Document Your Life - August 2019

Here is this months "Document your life" video. There was quite a bit going on this month but I hadn't really the time and opportunity to film everything. So I chose the nice and quiet moments.

August

August was a weird month. I started school again and I'm more stressed than I remember having been since my last exams two years ago. I finished one big project already and I'm just glad that it's behind me. I have to be a bit vague but it was kind of a group project and it ended up being so messy and stressful. Just so happy it's done. Now I'm trying to concentrate on my regular studies but if I'm honest I'm not really good at the moment.
I tried to distract myself but most of the productivity I had last month has already vanished again. I blame the horribly warm weather.

Starry Sky Dice Tray

I hope you're not tired of seeing alls those dice related things on my blog. This time it's neither a new addition to my hoard nor more dice cups. This time I made myself a new foldable fabric dice tray. 
I got a similar one for my birthday last year that I've been using ever since. And since I really love having matching gaming equipment for all of my characters I wanted to get another one. 


The fabric that I used is from Spoonflower and I didn't use a pattern. I simply drew a hexagon on a DIN A3 paper, transferred that to the fabric, sewed the front and back together leaving a small opening for turning and stitched down the edges and the lines for folding. Added some buttons and done. It looks a bit wonky (and I really should iron it again) but I really like how it turned out.

Also these are some of my favorite dice. It's the set I use for my oldest character. A very chaotic (ex-)monk how likes to set stuff on fire and steals his enemies fancy clothing for himself.

#Document Your Life - July 2019

Here is this months "Document your life" video. There wasn't much going on that was worthy to film.

July

July was a very lazy month for me. I was on summer break and used my time mostly for sleeping in, catching up on my favorite D&D streams and having a lot of naps. 
Since I wasn't really up to celebrating my birthday back in June one of my friends prepared an awesome pirate themed D&D one-shot and we had a small get-together to play. Big thanks to all of them for gifting me not only this great adventure but also the matching minis and even new paints. The same paints I tried out a few weeks ago and loved so very much. 
We didn't go away on vacation this summer. We're maybe going to take a short vacation later in the fall but nothing is really planned yet.
Instead I spend a lot of time with some of my hobbies. I painted some minis with my new paints, I made some new dice cups, build a few more notebooks for my D&D characters and I even did a bit of sewing. Nothing fancy, only taking in a few shirts but I've been more productive in the last few weeks than I have been all year. It feels good.
