    Hi Adrianne! I read your comment and I’d love to exchange links with you. Its a rarity when people ask me I sometimes just ask first.
    I just wanna try and make friends since I don’t have any in rl.
    I understand people have RL things to do but it wouldn’t hurt to say hi or check up to see how each other is doing. People don’t have the same interests as me so I never know what to blog about that other people would like. What’s the name of the font you use? It’s cute =)

      Hi there! Sorry I only replied to you just now. Must be the time zones. ^^

      I don’t have that many friends RL either, but I make it up by spending time doing hobbies, like art, video games, writing, etc. Sometimes just creating/building something can be a lot better than just hanging out with your friends (no offense to the friends out there LOL). Sometimes, RL can get really hectic and uncontrollable, I mean if you think about it, what if that person couldn’t go online anymore because their internet got cut off or if their computer got busted, etc.? Sometimes, the only way for us to know what’s going on with other people is for us to reach out to them, rather than us waiting for them to reach out to us. Give and take, I say. :)

      The font that I’m using (I’m guessing it’s the text content font?) is called Amaranth. You can find it at Google Fonts. ^_^

    See, I never thought of it like that way, to be honest, but it makes sense as to why fairs are so important even now. :D

      Oh, absolutely! ^_^ I guess, being the artist in me, county fairs are heaven to me LOL. Sometimes I have fun just going to the local Farmers Market every weekend, just to see what “rare” local stuff they’re selling aside from the usual fruits and veggies and other local-made goodies like honey, wine (SF Bay Area has Napa, Sonoma, and Livermore areas as “Wine Country”) and coffee beans LOL. I’m a foodie too, so I get all happy and excited when I see local foods being served there.

      At the fair, there’s a Tales of Symphonia cross-stitch embroidery portrait (yup… CROSS-STITCH EMBROIDERY LOL. That’s unique fanart right there LOL) and I wanted to take a photo of it and post it on my Instagram. Sad part is that we’re not allowed to take photos on the exhibits. Boo. :(

      Hi there Pim! My blog has moderation on, and I was at work (yes, I work on the weekends >.<), so couldn't really approve your comments til I got home. ^^; My apologies. Great! I'm redoing my links section, which is why it's perfect timing to do more link exchanges. ^_^

    I’ve been to fairs when I was younger, as of late not so much. Only because we live rather far away from where the fair grounds are in California. Plus, I’m not much of a fair type of person anymore. However, I did go once with my best friend that’s also named Michelle and her boyfriend at the time. Pretty good experience with her and her boyfriend, but I haven’t gone since then. Fairs are really all about the arts and crafts moreso than the rides. Although, I do feel that the owners placed rides and activities for the whole family so they can get more money that way. That’s just my opinion though.

    Some times, things and places will give us ideas and inspiration to do something we vowed never to do again. For instance, I vowed to stop blogging as the posts felt a little forced. What happened? A friend of mine and my programming club asked me to be the blogger for the club and that lead me back to blogging. Haha. It’s true.

      Hm, weird, I thought I replied to you before. Darn WordPress LOL.

      The thing with fairs is that they only come once a year, which means plenty of new stuff to be showcased there. Sometimes you can find some form of inspiration in fairs the least you expect it. That’s why I feel that, as a creative, being in a fair is like heaven sent for me LOL. I really like looking at other people’s hard work and creativity, regardless if they won the blue ribbon or not. The fact that they’re there on display really does mean something.

      As far as blogging, I like to keep a list of ideas on my notepad app on my phone when I’m away from my laptop. The problem is, once I reach my laptop, I start to get lazy and distracted and just simply ignore what I listed out on my notepad app. That doesn’t really help, I know LOL. Glad to see you’re back to blogging again, but keep in mind that it’s your blog, take it easy, and you’ll be fine. :)

    That’s great that you went to it and also shared the importance of them. They are able to provide and share a lot for the local communities and it’s important to support them. Hopefully you do find the photo!

      I haven’t even started looking for it yet. My dad keeps our old photos in shoeboxes and then stores them in one of the backyard toolsheds with locks included. It’s the same with what happened with my old books (*coughmyCardcaptorSakuraartbookscough*). Dang, should’ve kept them in the shelves instead of making room for new development/programming books LOL.

      I just barely started on the forum beta testing (it’s installed in my computer, but bleh LOL), so not much progress yet. It’s going to be a forum about us who love to build things and sharing things that we build… well if that makes any sense LOL.

      That’s also one thing about some fairs too. Some fairs are beginning to fade in a way because not very many people seem to be interested in showcasing something simple, original, and local to the masses or even just experience the simple life away from all the rapid age of technology. In my case, because I live in an area where “pride of originality and creativity” is high (San Francisco is across the bridge northeast of where I live (about 25-min drive) and Silicon Valley is just 20 minutes south of where my hometown is), fairs are a really huge deal for us here. ^^

    After reading this, I looked back at the last time I went to a sort of local fair and realised that I may attend too much. LOL. Especially on certain months of the year. In England, especially in my hometown, there were always local fairs in the neighbourhood and trips to see artists born there and their work. Additionally, we have a huge museum that is dedicated to local artisans, craftsmen and other creative being’s work – they are updated at least every two months and so I visit often. I think it is a great way to appreciate those who really put their heart and soul into the work, and as you know, it’s not an easy task/to live off.

    I always visit fairs with my friends or family, and it really is some nice relaxing time off the usual hectic day-work chatter and more about appreciation and love :)

      That’s really awesome! I have relatives in England also (both parents have huge families and they’re all over the place LOL) and sometimes they’d share some pics on their Facebook of the fairs they would attend. But a museum dedicated to artisans, craftsmen, and the like is just amazing!

      There is one fair that I would like to attend again one day. We call it the Renaissance Fair, but it’s located in Hollister, California (UNRELATED to that “Hollister” clothing line that isn’t really coming from the real town of Hollister XD), which is like an hour drive from where I live. It’d be fun to experience how life is like during medieval times. You get to cosplay there too. ^_^
