The Crossroads of the Aether
So I finally had a small heart-to-heart with my dad about my future after college. Thinking about life after college has always been a source of immense stress and anxiety for me so I avoided talking about it (especially with my parents) or thinking about it as much as I could. But my dad brought it up in the car on the ride home from hiking and asked me what I want to do and how I feel about my current major.

What's this, yet another Steampunk Novel?

Although I am still just a college student with two more years until graduation I have always had the ambition to open up my own restaurant. I now have the idea for "The Clockwork Cafe", a small restaurant that will serve baked goods, drinks, and lunch/dinner food for all ages with a Steampunk atmosphere located in the Historical Triangle of Virginia (Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown).
All I need right now is support and ideas from the Steampunk community (and any tips…Continue

So after much ado, the paint job is finally on. I had a massive headache getting the paint to behave in an appropriate and timely manner. The piano faces directly west, so the sun beats down on it pretty relentlessly during the longest days of our year. The heat was so intense that the paint started to blister with every coat.
