First, the bad news.
The Kickstarter Project I talked about some days ago has, unfortunately, failed to reach its goal of $40,000.00. It reached $11,469.00, but that just wasn't enough.
As an autist, I do not like this. I would've liked it if this project was able to get off the ground. It probably still will, but unfortunately it might take a lot longer.
On a different note, today is Victoria Day in Canada. For those of you not in the know, Victoria Day is celebrated on the last Monday before May 25th, in honour of the monarch, Queen Victoria. (info on the holiday and monarch here -> [link] [link] ) In my neighbourhood, our tradition for Victoria Day (and for Canada Day) was to go down to the nearby beach and light fireworks. However, the police have seen to it that that is more restricted as of Canada Day 2007. As a result, we've been restricted to watching the fireworks display that the city sets up. People still light fireworks on the beach, but me and my family don't. My brother said the magic is lost because he can't light fireworks himself, but you know, the city's fireworks display is pretty good.
So, yeah, that's all I've got. The Kickstarter fundraiser failed, but Happy Victoria Day!
