Writer's Block: Talent show

I am a writer.  It is what I am and always have been.  I don't say it as bragging, but as a fact.  I don't know how to do anything but write.  Alright I can do things like be a cashier, answers phones, cook, and all of that.  But those things are just jobs.  They're just chores and tasks that I have to go through.  Music and writing though.  Those things keep me sane.  And when it comes to writing, that becomes everything that I am.  It is the only thing that I can ever imagine holding onto for the rest of my life really.
What is something you do well?

Writer's Block: Up in the Air

Do you ever call friends or use the Internet when flying or do you use airplane time as an opportunity to unwind, read, or talk to strangers? How do you usually pass the time when you’re in the air?

Well, the few times that I get to fly instead of facing the terror of taking the bus to and from school, I usually find myself enjoying the take-off and then (or even before the take-off) passing out. It's usually uncontrollable and usually happens during at least one flight. I am not one of the fortunate ones who is blessed with only one flight, I usually have to endure at least two if not more. When I actually have time to stay awake, then I have fun. Sometimes it's playing around on my laptop. On my last flight, I watched episodes of Supernatural and Sanctuary that I had loaded on youtube and another site. Usually I either read or write. It just depends on what I have on available to me.

(no subject)

Life is a bit of an adventure. That is probably putting it lightly, but that is beside the point and well anyone who can agree knows. For those that cannot make sense of that statement, you are not in that group. Not meaning to offend anyone who dares read this, just kind of stating a fact. I can be terribly blunt sometimes, especially when I am in a particular mood. Today happens to contain one of those moods. In just a few days, my step-sister Laura and my brother Titus will be graduating from high school. That isn't the end of the adventure though -.-

You see, beside the fact that two siblings are graduating AT ONE TIME, we are also moving my grandmother out. Trust me, we're very grateful for that. We love her, but she is driving us INSANE!!!! She is nosy, she is overly talkative and she tends to treat my parents like children. Bad idea. Of course once we get her out, Friday night, my aunt, uncle, and their girls get in for the graduation. That will be another adventure, not so bad hopefully, but still really busy and crowded. Even when graduation is over the adventure won't be over, I'm certain of it. I could wish otherwise, but it's true.

Home for the Holidays

So after a slightly nerve-wracking trip via bus, I am home for the holidays while waiting for the next semester of college to begin. Kind of exciting I suppose. I love my family so it's nice to see them. All the doctor appointments aren't so fun. I'll live with those though. I am getting to do plenty of reading and writing though. I can only hope it stays that way. I love my books and I don't know if I'd be able to do things without them. Let's hope I don't have to figure out how at all during break. A week without Internet is not something I would look forward to. I am making some progress on editing my novel. Page seventeen...out of one hundred eighty nine. So yeah, I have quite the ways to go. But I'm not about to give up anytime soon. I love writing too much to even consider it.

Finals, oh Finals

Definitely not my favorite time of year. Finals are simply a pain. That's a nice way of putting it too. I wish I could say that I enjoyed them, but I'd be lying. And since, one I don't like to lie and two I'm not really good at it, let's just stick to the truth. So I am studying and being good because I need to and sometimes I really do have some pride which means I do not wanna mess up in my classes. So this has put a bit of a dent in my writing, not that I have stopped. I don't think It's physically possible for me to stop writing. I've been doing it for about eight years so that has got to mean something! Let's just hope it doesn't take me eight years to finish my story this time around! I would be really disappointed in myself if that was the case.

Well besides all that, I'm kind of excited to be going home. But I'm also nervous. I have no idea what my parents have in store for me. I doubt they'll try to make me find a job. Not for three weeks that I'll be home. That would be cruel honestly. I can understand for summer break. I need to work on my plans for that anyway.

Writer's Block: Voulez-vous parler ...

Which language(s) do you currently speak? If you could learn only one other language, what would you choose, and why?

Hm, I speak that English stuff XD Then again, I have some German (not much) and just the tiniest bit of French and Japanese. I would love to learn both German and Japanese fluently though and throw in Italian and Greek.

Snow Day

Never in my life can I recall having a snow day...until today. Oh glorious glorious day! No classes! It makes me ridiculously happy. Mostly because I don't wanna walk out in the snow. Hm, wonder why THAT would be >.>

Of course it also gives me time to work on stuff like homework *snorts* or editing my finished novel *sighs* or working on one of my new ones *plots*. It should, therefore, be a busy day full of joy!

Sunday was Exciting, Today not so much

Alright, so Sunday was a great day actually! Sunday I finished up my nano! That means this is the first novel length story that I have finished. I'm really proud of myself! I printed it off on one of my friends computer and it totals 188 pages. Of course now I have to go through and edit it, but that's okay. I love it! I know that it's perfect. Well, not perfect, but what the story is supposed to be and that's what matters to me.

Today, not so great :( Today it's been snowing lots. And it's cold and windy. It reminds me of home in such an annoying way. It makes me want to stay in my apartment the rest of the day, but I know that I can't. The really annoying part is that the public schools have been canceled, college classes weren't. What's up with that? We have internet for a reason don't we?

My Novel

Well, I finally got around to working on finishing my novel. That's exciting! I'm hoping that I can wrap it up this weekend. That means it'll be my first written/finished novel-length story. It makes me want to bounce around! I have decided now, Nanowrio was definitely good for me. I don't know if I ever would have done this story without it. And now I'm really into my writing again so that's another HUGE bonus. It appears that life is going very well for me in that respect.

Writer's Block: Name your passion

What are you most passionate about and why?

I would love to say that it was God. That's what it should be. But I have never quite made it to that point in my life or faith. I'm still working on that area. So, quite honestly, it'd have to be either books or history.
