It is still indeed morning. It is 11 a.m. on this cold Saturday. I have been busy busy busy for the past couple hours packing orders. I, erm— [chuckle] It’s always fun admitting your failures, publicly. I, um… I fucked up. I scheduled poorly. I planned poorly. I procrastinated, and so I wasn’t able to send out all the orders that I needed to before I left for Thanksgiving holiday. Now, I’m basically just playing catch-up. [to Sophie] Hi ‘goph!! Hi Soph!! Hi~ Hi!! Um, so, been packin’ the past few days We got back yesterday at like 5:00 and I stayed up to like 2:00 last night packing orders and then gonna be packing orders today, but then I also have this like zine thing that I need to work on because the final draft of that is due today, but what I will probably end up doing is emailing the like, curator of the zine and be like “Yo, is it chill if I email this to you tomorrow?” And I have a feeling that’ll be okay. But if not, I can probably get it done today. [in a gentle voice] Hi Sophie. Hi my little angel darling. Hi, baby. [normal voice] Yeah, so I’m basically just packing orders like a madwoman. I…got so many orders with the shop update and I’m so grateful and so thankful. And it’s made me realize that I’m probably going to [sing-song] need to hire someone in the springtime. Which is a scary thing to think about as a business owner because it means that like I have to think about, like, I probably need to like register an LLC, I have to think about benefits, if I can even provide those, and what, like, legal and, legally and financially what is this entail and all of these things and w9s and [sigh] Because suddenly I won’t just be self-employed. I will then become an employer which is weird to think about but that that’s for 2020! I don’t have to think about that right now. Today, basically, all I need to do is pack orders. So Basically pack orders and then I need to reorder some stickers that I’m running low on ,particularly like freebies and stuff. [to Soph] Hi !! I will probably need to make a trip to Staples to get printer ink because I realized that I ran out of printer ink yesterday and um.. I ordered some online, but the fastest it can get here is Monday and I need it today, so I can print prints and things. So. I will probably need to do that. You can probably hear Soph sniffing around, she’s a very sniffly baby. Hmm? [in the special voice I only use with Sophie] Hi. Hiiiii. [in Swedish] Hi, little darling. What’s up? Hi, hello. [in Swedish] What are you doing? [English] I’m gonna take this first batch of orders for the day to the post office, and then I should probably get food. I also need to get milk for tea. Connor and I had a lovely holiday. We were down in the bay, the East Bay, celebrating with his family for Thanksgiving and it was so much fun. His family is so cool!! And it was just such a delight!! to, like, experience, like, a fun Filipino Thanksgiving, which is very different from like a typical, like white person Thanksgiving, where it’s just a lot, where everyone you know kind of sits down and has like a meal. This one was really fun, because basically just everyone brought stuff, we set it out on the table, and then people were just milling around and chatting and it was so fun and so lovely and I made friends with a baby! And, um.. Like, his family is just really cool, and I’m just really happy that they like me! And uh, it was lovely to get to see the spot where like Connor, you know, grew up and learn about more about that part of his life. Um, It was, it was a good holiday and now we’re, we’re We’re back! to it! friends! So. All good. Where’s my darling? Oh, she’s back in her little, she’s back in her little cubbyhole. I think I might pack orders for a little bit more? I’m gonna pack orders for a little bit more, and then… Ugh, but I’m so hungry. I’m gonna pack orders for a little bit more, and then I’m gonna go drop this off, and then I’m gonna go get food. ♫ chill wintry jazz ♫ [sing-song] We’re making dinner! I’m in charge of dinner today. You’re gonna have to pardon my kettle, I’m heating up water for tea. But! I’m in charge dinner today. It’s going to be~ It is, this… phenomenal cauliflower orzo pasta salad. I will post the recipe link down below. It is phenomenal! It only has like 3 stars, as far as the reviews go, which personally I think is preposterous. Also it is, (what time is it?) It is 6 p.m. But it’s been dark for like an hour and a half because it’s The Pacific Northwest in the winter. But this is a really easy This is a very easy pasta salad. And it’s good hot or cold and it makes so much and I just eat it for days. It’s great. 😀 Also, I would recommend—she uses sherry vinegar in her recipe. I would recommend red wine vinegar instead. Also, this recipe is vegan. So yaaaay! um Let me see, so we need red wine vinegar. We need olive oil. We need cauliflower. We neeeeeed… pine nuts! We need orzo. We need… Where are my raisins? So you roast the cauliflower, orzo, pine nuts, raisins, parsley, and you just throw it all together, and it’s—you just roast up the cauliflower then make a dressing and then you just kind of let it marinate for a bit and it’s uh, it’s phenomenal. Also, I just feel I’m so used to filming when there’s daylight out and now since it’s just this time of year, uh Filming at night’s gonna be brutal. I hate filming at night just because of like exposure and white balance like this. For instance, my kitchen looks fine now, but the light in my living room is really pink, because we have different light bulbs in different rooms. So. [stammering] [sigh] It’s fine, it’s just, it’s just bothersome, but now I’m gonna make tea and chop up cauliflower, so. 😀 ♫ chill jazz music ♫ Okay—I’m sorry honey, I know, I know. You’re so cute [kiss] and I love you so much, but you gotta be careful, okay? Connor: Goddammit. [curious Sophie meow] Chey: Way to go! [Sophie meows]
Connor: I fought a particularly scary-looking… [LOUD Sophie meow] Chey: What?!
Connor: Whoa! Chey: What do you need?
Connor: ..Yiga dude. Chey: Oh, the big buff one?
Connor: Mmhm.
Chey: Yeah, those guys are frightening. What is up little one? [small laugh] Chey: How’s it going? Connor: I got a little bit owned just then. Chey: That’s okay! Are you trying to climb the tower now? The scary one? Connor: Yeah, look at that one. Chey: I know, it’s-I mean, I can’t really see it, this- Can I? Yeah. He’s trying to climb the tower in, um… Oh gosh, I forget what this region’s called. Connor: Death Mountain!
Chey: Akkala! [to Connor] No.
Connor: What? Connor: It is time to—
Chey: Hey, there’s a stable! Chey: Nice. Yeah, that’s-this is-yeah. He’s in Akkala. So. Are you having fun, darling? Connor: I am! I’m gonna play video games for- [Sophie trills] I say 10 more minutes but we know that’s not the truth. Chey: No, we all know that’s not the truth. What do you need, Goph? What’s going on, darling? Chey: We’re gonna play soon okay? Mama has to tidy. Chey: [high-pitched] MERP! [Sophie trills]
Chey: Yeah, I know. Chey: Hello. You’re so pretty. I see your tail! You want to play. We will play soon. Soph: [inquistive trilling sound]
Chey:You’re mama’s favorite girl! Chey: I love you. Soph: [tiny meow]
Chey: [small chuckle] ♫ soft jazz music ♫ Okay, so, um, Every Sunday, or like, there’s lots of farmer’s markets all over Seattle, but there’s this one bakery called Seawolf and they do these lye rolls which are basically like pretzel rolls, but they’re They’re like, oh my god. They’re just so good. And since I don’t go to the farmers market so often anymore, I never get them. But then sometimes Connor wanders in to the farmer’s market on the weekends and he’s able to pick them up for me!! Connor: About like once a week, I’ll go on a walk and usually I walk by a Seawolf opportunity.
Chey: Yes.
Connor: And so, I make it a point. These are my favorite things in the world. I get half a dozen and I eat them all in about like, I don’t know, 30 minutes?
Connor: You love ’em! Chey: I do love them. [Connor coughing] You good, baby?
Connor: Yeah, just hydrating. Chey: [with joy] MMMMM! mmmMMMM!
Connor: [laughs] Chey: [triumphantly] BREAD!! Happy Monday! I have just been tuttling away at my computer for the past, like, two hours, organizing my emails. Um, I went to therapy this morning, I went to Miro for lunch and tea, my typical Monday routine. And I wrote in my planner, and so now that I’ve got all my emails sorted, I’m going to organize my commissions and then I’m going to pack orders. I’m running out of little freebie stickers, but I’m gonna cut out a couple so I should be able to get through like another probably 30 or so.. ..tonight. Actually, before I do that though, I’m going to–oh, my battery’s about to die. Please hold. Okay, we’re good. Um, fresh battery. But yeah, so I’m gonna organize my–I have a couple like family/friend commissions, so I’m going to organize those and then I think that the orders are more pressing, so I’m going to cut out my stickers, pack those orders And then after I’m done with that, I’m going to sit on my couch and work on this zine piece that I have. And that… I think, I think that’s all I have for you for this video. Um, as I said at the beginning, this video, this little weekend vlog, was very very kindly sponsored by Squarespace!

  1. When you talked above it therapy as part of your Monday routine I loved it, because every Monday I do therapy at 10 and then sometimes I get myself Starbucks and go to the bookstore. Or in the case of this month, take care of Xmas shopping before the stores get crazy.

  2. It makes me so happy when you upload! I love seeing you, Sophie, and Connor, it really makes my day ♥️♥️♥️

  3. Awe! I just found you not long ago and I really enjoyed this vlog. The music was calming throughout and your space is super cute. I also think you’re just adorable and I enjoy this type of content as I’m a new full time artist myself 😬 anyway, I can’t wait to catch ya he next one, thanks for sharing. Oh, and it was super endearing how you proclaim your love at the end💕🎀

  4. Hey Cheyenne! Allow me to get a little retrospective here. It was 2016 I think when my friend told me "I follow this girl on instagram who reminds me of you a lot, she's @studyrose." (I guess you and I look a little bit alike.) I was very into bullet journaling back then, as were you, and I loved your content. I stuck with you through the years and I have always enjoyed your company. I often play your videos as I do little things in my house. Your being open about mental health has been very important to me, and I'm so happy to see you thrive. And since you're a professional actress and illustrator (my two hobbies!) I really connect with you and your lifestyle. Also, I just got deja vu and I feel like I've left this same comment before, but in case I haven't, please know that I appreciate you very much and I wish you all the best. Kisses to you, Connor, and Sophie, all the way from Athens, Greece. (P.S.: Sorry for my inconsistent rambling!)

  5. I like everything about you and your videos … Your art style, your aesthetic, how nice and wournuble you are … Thank you so much and lots of love 🤗😄

  6. your videos are like a balm to the soul✨ also, missed your journal videos so so so much, thanks for including clips of you planning💛

I can't wait to dedicate more time to writing for my queer blog (doesn't pay, but its really fulfilling) watching your videos is just so calming and now I feel like everything is going to be okay, best of luck in 2020, I know you'll be a superstar employer because you are full of kindness

  17. dear cheynne,
    thank you for this vlog. this past week i’ve come down with a cold so seeing this on a friday night was probably one of the best things that’s happened to me this week. stay cool, you funky human.

  18. hey ate cheyenne,

    I'm currently a freshman in college and I'm a huge fan of yours. I've been living far from home for about 6 months now, and I'm not gonna lie, living alone is tough. It gets lonely sometimes, having no one to talk to or hang out with.

    At night I find myself reaching for my phone from the nightstand, opening this app and scrolling through your channel. Your videos give me a certain type of warmth I can't find in the corners of my dorm room. When I watch your videos, it feels like I'm meeting an old friend, it radiates a familiar vibe I only get to feel when I'm home.

    There are times when I feel so down, when my sadness and loneliness absorbs me into a tiny hole and I am tempted to give up, but I don't. Your channel gives me a reason to keep on going. It inspires me to keep moving forward so that someday I'll be able to do the things I love to do.

    Today I write you on my joy log journal entry. I wish you all the happiness this world has to offer <3

    Stay amazing,
    dana

    p.s. someday I hope I find a relationship like what you and connor have, you guys are so sweet

  19. Hello there! Just popping in to say thank you so much for your wonderful videos. I’m 52 years old and I have been encouraged by honesty. I also learned a lot from you, so once again a big thank you 😊
    I do have a question and seek your wisdom (yes I believe us old school folks can learn from the young). I opened my Etsy shop two years ago—how can I get my shop noticed without being a YouTuber? I have a FB, Twitter, IG and Pinterest. Do you have all these? I just recently taught myself Procreate (never knew this awesome app existed) any suggestions I would appreciate 🥰🖤😊
    Keep on making these videos—I watch them with a big cup of tea and a snack.

  20. Ooh that orzo pasta salad looks delicious! And bonus that it's vegan, I think some of my friends would love it!

    Thanks for the little insights into your life Cheyenne! I hope you have a lovely weekend and a joyful next week too <3
