Change of plans! I started college today and it’s for writing! I’m taking five classes that will help me better some writing skills such as editing and descriptive settings(because I seem to forget the seasons in my books) as well as the publishing processes. I already turned in my first assignment today and everyone has loved it so far but omgosh! I’m still overcome with joy, lol! Maybe sounds crazy but I accomplished another of my goals! Next is to get the editing and illustrations for Book One finished. Then to have it published! Holding my own published book in my hands is my ultimate dream so when that comes true, first I’ll probably cry while I’m jumping up and down screaming. Then I’ll have to make another huge writing goal. 😀 Looking forward to all of that!
Today I ended up going to the mall with a couple of friends and it was awesome! We started off by walking around and just talking before running into the game zone. We played air hockey and a couple other games for a while before behold, there was laser tag. The best game in the universe and I haven’t played it in years. In we go and this one was very space-like. Ten minutes of hunting each other down and it was epic. When we finished, we checked out our scores. Scarily, mine at 1,980 points doubled theirs, lol. I got hit six times versus the thirty-one I shot. Apparently a high score for the game too and I got called “Raptor.” Then it was back to some more air hockey before we went ahead to Books-A-Million where we got coffee and discovered that there were books not only 20% off but used and in very good condition for only $2-6 each. Needless to say, I was in heaven and managed to finish collecting two series. All in all, a good Saturday. Now back to my reviewing need-to-read list. ;D
Happy November! Time for cooler weather, thank god, lol. Don’t get me wrong, summer is awesome but I loooove fall and winter. So! I’ve been extremely busy lately. It turns out that I will finally be starting college in late January so I’m really excited. It won’t be for writing though and I’ve been told I’m crazy but it’s for a fifteen-month auto body course. I’ll have even less time to do anything during that time but it’ll be awesome regardless.
Today is just one of those days where everything I do feels wrong and I feel like I’m getting sick. This week has been another rollercoaster for me. I will be getting my first book published before the end of this year and everything seems to be falling into place. However, two weeks ago when it felt the same way, the next day was completely different so I’m just waiting for someone to pull the plug on this as well. I’m nervous but excited and no, critics will not get inside my head. I’m over and out for the weekend because I’m too tired to blog much at the moment.
So, for this birthday, I’ve received four birthday cakes, two out-in-public dinners, and a wonderful steak dinner prepared by my best friend. We just spent the entire evening with Wolf and Debbie. It was amazing, as always, and now I have several books to read and movies to watch. I should really be sleeping early because I’m also going shopping tomorrow and have to get up early to take care of my dog but I think I’m going to pull another late-night, rather than an all-nighter. Thank you to everyone who helped me celebrate my eighteenth birthday and I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
The Hunger Games midnight premiere was amazing! It was cram-packed so we had to sit in the second row but wow! I was actually surprised by how accurate they got every scene(unlike Harry Potter). It’s definitely one of my new favorites and they better make the other two books into movies as well. Otherwise, we may just have to hunt them down and force them to. For those who haven’t read the books, you won’t find spoiler alerts here(as this is a very short post because I’m really tired from all of today’s events). You’ll love the movie and I suggest reading the books regardless of how amazing the movie is. There’s just that whole feeling you get after you read a book and to see it played out onscreen. It’s fantastic! So, happy Hunger Games and may the odds be ever in your favor! ;p
Other than feeling really weird to be an adult and have so much responsibility and lenience abruptly, everything is pretty normal. My entire family are still asses(other than my mom) and they’ve broken all promises to me yet again. I went out with Nancy all day today on job hunts and managed to pick up six job applications. Now to fill them all out and to turn them in tomorrow. I actually pulled an all-nighter last night and slept for two hours so I wouldn’t strain my eyes, lol. I should be preparing myself for the midnight premiere of The Hunger Games tomorrow with my sister so I’m going to try to sleep for ten hours straight. Hopefully it’ll work, even with my allergies bothering me so much. ;p All in all, a good day. This entire week total will end up being awesome.
