Hey Howl Pack

It’s Mae Polzine! I started this blog back in 2015 to be a place where I could be creative and share things that I love. So, I post a variety of things. I stream a variety of things (gaming, body paint, art, etc.) on Twitch multiple times a week, with stream highlights and all VODs posted on my YouTube Channel.

Lastly, join our Discord to chat with other pack members. We have a great and supportive community over there. I love talking with everyone in Discord as it’s a great way to connect. Also, I offer Twitch emotes, sub badges, and moreover on my shop page as well as my own merch.

Mid-Year Reading Wrap Up

I figured as we’re halfway through the year, I would do a wrap-up of the things that I read. Especially as there were a lot of books that I managed to get through already. I don’t know if I’ll have quite the same amount read in the second half of the year, but you never know. When I get into a good book, I have a hard time putting it down.

Having Fun in Minecraft

I’m not great in Minecraft by any means. But I try. Usually, I end up building in creative mode. However, I got invited to play in a survival realm so I’m been trying my hardest to do everything the normal way. Which has resulted in many deaths, and some of my friends giving me enchanted armor and potions to help me avoid dying as often. But other than that, everything else I’m made for myself. Well… not the village I took over but the main buildings that I use were of my own creation. One reflects the village around me and the other is my storage which resembles a nether fortress in some regard.

I Tried Following a Bob Ross Tutorial Digitally

I decided to follow a Bob Ross tutorial digitally today on stream. But to give myself more of a challenge, I was only allowed to use “weird” brushes. So, not your typical flat brush, oil paint, or line brushes. I had to use the artistic ones. Those that have weird textures or designs. This also went for any smudging or blending that I had to do. In addition, to keep with the traditional style art I could only use one layer. The tutorial I ended up following was Tropical Seascape from Season 12 Episode 9 of The Joy of Painting.

Making a Clown of Myself

I haven’t done a makeup photo diary or post in a while. I’ve done creative makeup looks for Caturday (a thing I do every Saturday with two of my streaming friends: Foxtail and Cassii over on Twitch), but I just haven’t made specific posts about them. Sometimes I don’t remember to post them on Instagram though the most of them are. But this one is just creative makeup for the sake of creative makeup. I wasn’t trying to do it for anything. I was just in the mood and picked one of the looks I had in my Inspo folder. This pastel rainbow clown look inspired by @yannalinnaa and @jamescharles.

Finally Got Myself New Furniture

Now before I begin this post, I want to state, I have not received any of these items in person yet. Some of them are not coming until the beginning to mid-August. So, the pictures are from Amazon and HOM Furniture where I got the pieces. But I’m really excited about this fact and since I’m blogging every day this month, I thought this was a great time to talk about it. Especially since this week’s theme seems to be “exploring new things.” And purchasing my own furniture would count as that. I don’t know if this theme will continue for the rest of the week, but might as well continue with it.

First Time for Everything…

I’m blogging all month long, every single day I’m going to be writing something new. There isn’t really a theme or anything. Sometimes it might be about books, shows, beauty, or life. It’s really just going to be whatever I’m in the mood to write about that day. And today, I thought I would start off with something personal. As I did something for real, for the first time, and it’s literally the only thing I can think about writing about at the moment. Honestly, I’m not even sure if I should as I feel almost embarrassed talking about it, but it’s a natural thing that happens in life and I don’t know maybe someone out there can relate.
