Welcome to 2021! Everyone is still socially isolated. I’ve become addicted to Discord, and it’s helped me get through the winter… It was a pretty lame winter with very little snow; we had none at the end of March. Most of April has featured 15°C+ so ma nature continues to favour us!
As far as Discord goes. I decided to start my own server there. I made a page, here, where you can see what the server’s about and decide whether you’d be interested in joining. For now it’s pretty quiet, but if it grows up a bit, it could end up being a nice place to hang out…
I’m looking forward to spending some time outdoors after spending most of the last few months on the couch. I’ve managed to de-stress significantly in the last few months, though, so it was totally worth it. I may even get back into some of my old hobbies, like nature photography and hiking some new places. I’m pretty sure that in all of last year, I went only to and from the same mud hole, which is a good hike, but always to the same spot
Meanwhile, I’ve decided to buy a GoPro. It took me a fair bit of shopping around to get a decent price, and I debated with myself quite a bit over whether it’s worth the price or not. The GoPro is considered by most reviewers to be superior to the lower-priced knockoffs, and given it’s proven versatility, I ultimately decided it’s worth the splurge.
I’ve lost a lot of weight over the winter in complete opposition to normal… And so, in addition to yet another new camera, I’m going to be ordering up another custom zentai outfit. This time around, I’m going for a more expensive option, with heavy weight spandex fabric instead of the cheap lighter stuff that I usually get. The site I’m buying from sez it’s 10 oz/yd2, which works about to 339 gsm, and so it’s quite heavy weight. I might have to ask some questions before getting it, tho, because the heavier fabrics I usually see are around 250 gsm (7.something oz/yd2)… Without any frame of reference, I don’t really know what I’m getting into.
My first suit had an attached head and feet, and my second one had no head or feet. This time, I think I will get a detached hood (mostly to use when filming/photographing), and feet. I’m also considering getting the zipper in the back instead of the front, although the zipper doesn’t usually interfere with the fun, and it’s easier to access…
Thanks in part to COVID, no doubt, I’m looking at a 6-8 week lead time, which means if I’m lucky I’ll have it for the end of June. Chances are I will end up having a session or two with my older suits, which is fine, although they aren’t as nice and tight any more. I’m sure they’ll do fine!
