Alla’s July Junctions

July has definitely been a month full of ups and downs.

The heat wave that swept the midwest was a huge down. I never knew I took A/C for granted; my roommate and I almost died. But fans and open windows had to do. A huge up is that I have been offered a new job that I am starting in August. My first “big girl” 9-5 job. Yay! I have been talking with this company since May, and it’s now finally paying off. I’m very excited to start, however telling my managers at my current job that I was leaving was extremely hard. Maybe I’ll tell this story another time.

Another up; my closest friends moved back to Columbus after months of planning, and I have been able to spend quality time with them. We are all just a bunch of artsy gamers, and even after all this time apart, we came together like no time had passed. It was magical.

Either way, I have a couple goodies I would like to share with you. July has been pretty hectic, so I don’t have much to show this time, but let’s see how it goes!

  1. Mellow Mushroom Pizza

Pizza might be my favorite food ever. I have always joked that I could eat pizza out of the garbage and it would still be good (If I actually do this, please stop me immediately). My friends and I, in order to catch up together, had dinner at the Mellow Mushroom pizza joint near the Sawmill/Dublin area in northwest Columbus. We all shared three pizzas together: one half pepperoni/mushroom, one barbecue chicken, and one veggie. I tried all three, and while I may be bias, my friends and I all agreed that the pizza was top notch, super delicious. The dough was nice and crispy, ingredients tasted fresh, the pizzas were hot and fresh out the oven. Along with pizza, the restaurant had board games for us to play while we waited for our food, which made the experience way more fun. I will definitely be going back, especially with my friends.

2. Queer Eye

This month, I took a week vacation and stayed with my mom and stepmom in Indianapolis. We spent some quality time together going shopping, visiting my nana, doing  my hair, but we also binge-watched “Queer Eye” most days. If you haven’t heard of this Netflix show before, it’s about 5 gay guys, all huge advocates for positivity and self-love, help a person who needs a little lesson in self-care. They help with their wardrobe, morning routine, their personal relationships. They even remodel parts of their home. They spread love everywhere they go, changing people’s lives for the better, bringing out the beauty within. Sometimes it gets emotional, and admittedly I have gotten misty-eyed while watching.

But if you haven’t watched “Queer Eye” yet, I highly recommend it. It’s a feel-good show that makes me happy when I watch it.

3. Apple

Now I’ve talked about the Apple Store’s Genius Bar before in a previous blog post, but I have to give them another shout out here. You see, my computer, as old as she is, is starting to show her age. Programs load slower and slower, the screen will freeze every few seconds, and I’ll have to force reset my computer multiple times to get things done. So I made the trip to the Apple Store, and we discovered that the hard drive is failing. I would have never figured this out on my own; I would’ve bitten the bullet and bought a whole new computer. But the associate recommended that I buy a new hard drive, and helpfully pointed me in the right direction. I now have the knowledge to purchase one and go through the process of replacing it. I really appreciated all the associates that helped me, and they are saving me thousands of dollars by helping me increase the longevity of my old, wise computer.

That’s really all I have for this month. Things look wonderful in the coming months, and  can’t wait to share with you more of my life updates.

But before I go, I have a new wallpaper for my patrons for August:

A cute pinky Princess Chibiusa to grace your smartphone! If you would like to have this cute wallpaper for your phones made by me, consider taking a look at my Patreon! I also have a donation jar there if you are feeling particularly generous today.

Also, If you have taken a look around my website lately, you may have noticed a few changes. It’s looking more peachy, huh? Well, when I got back in town from visiting my mom, I made the decision to rebrand! allasart.me is now known as softpeach.art. I wanted to combine my life with my art, and I have fallen in love with Soft Peach; it’s kind of becoming my identity at this point. So if you would like to take a look around, here are my social links:
