So this week and next week is pretty much all tests and midterms for me, and I must say, so far they’ve been pretty boring and easy. With the exception of the Pre-calc midterm that I did without a calculator. But there is still the AP Chem test that I have to take so that should be interesting.
Other than that all I have is a contest for Figment which ends on the 25th. They are fun contests, you need an account to be able to participate and a few friends to read through your stuff and heart it for you. I find them fun and entertaining, if you go on the contests page you can go vote for some of them once you get an account.
Well back to studying for stuff that I don’t have to study for… Hm… I should probably go write my letter of meta-cognition… But first I’m going to self-lessly promote my roleplaying site that I’m on… go to the side column and click on the little picture with the WM on it… it should say War Mage when you click on it. It’s fun and Tamora Pierce-y

So it’s Christmas here still, and I’m extremely happy with what I got for it. I got:
- A Harry Potter T-shirt
- A new Sansa-Fuse+ MP3 player
- $30 dollars for use on the internet
- Earings: penguins and these crystal things
- A stuffed penguin that was hugging a fleece blanket.
- Extremely fuzzy socks that are blue
- Gertrude Hawk dark chocolate raspberry Santas
I intend to use the $30 on the internet for at least one Rhapsody subscription and then maybe something else… but IDK I’ll figure it out… Well anyway… Happy Christmas ALL!!! Or holidays to those who don’t celebrate Christmas. I hope your day was wonderful all the same. Finally, GERTRUDE HAWK IS THE MOST AMAZING STUFF EVERR!!!

My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I don’t really like this style of writing, mostly because I’m not a fan of verse. The other reason I didn’t necessarily like this was because some of the stories were just kind of, vulgar, and really disgusting. I read this for British Literature in school, and we had to do projects on it, and I don’t really know why I disliked it as much as I did. I mean was it interesting in some parts, but others it was too much, or just wasn’t finished.
I guess it was just not my style…

Hey all so NaNoWriMo starts this Tuesday and I’m totally freaking out about it! I can’t wait but then again I’m so stressed, I have to finish a college essay and get it edited and then re-write and submit. So I’m a little bit stressed right now because not only that, I have homework on top of it all.
So the point is… If I’m not reviewing books or doing much of anything on here, that’s why… I’m sorry, if you have any special requests you can just post a comment and I’ll try to post on it if I have time. But other than that, I’m going to busy… Sorry again if you’re waiting for something.
Okay so I’ve been horribly neglecting this… Though I doubt anyone is following it so I don’t think it’ll matter that I post this. But I shall anyway. So lately I have been busy with school work and sleeping, and roleplaying. If I haven’t been working on AP Chem home work, I’ve been sleeping because I’m so exhausted from school and from this cold that I’ve had since last Thursday. I have just now posted on a role-playing site that I’m on for the first time in about three weeks. They must be so annoyed with me, but I just can’t do it that often anymore, I have no idea why I’m so tired.
We haven’t been very active and I think that’s because of school and because of other life stuff, but if you want to go to the site and check it out, the site is on my side bar, it is BV. This is a House of Night role play but we have strayed kind of far from the books. The site is http://www.dragoniv.com/bloodvow if the link on the side doesn’t work. And the rules and plot are clearly outlined in a board on the forum. If you have questions, comment here, or there’s a way to message an admin, or you could post in the chat box. Anyway, it’s really fun, and some people are posting.
So this week has been a little hectic, from the power outages to Pottermore, and getting ready for school to start. I have been very busy. As of right now I am working on a short story I guess, for a contest that I found online. The parameters of the contest are: It has to be under 1500 words, and it has to involve some one finding something magical and it either gives them or has magical powers. This contest can be found at this site: http://blog.figment.com/2011/08/30/the-magical-contest/ and you can get more information from there. I am currently 366 words in and I already have a good idea of where to go with it.
But there’s actually doing something with it and wanting to do something with it. So I should stop writing this, and go write that. But first: I have to figure out how to fix this picture that I want for the Cover Pic. because if I don’t, I’m going to go insane. If you all can’t tell by now, I’m not good with computers, they are complicated, they give me headaches, and they all seem to hate me. So this may take a while *sighs*. If I had money I would hire someone to do all of the techy stuff for me, but I don’t have money. So I can’t hire someone, currently my friend is taking pitty on me and doing it for me… got to love having friends. Well anyway, I need to finish this, and go to sleep because it’s 5am and I haven’t slept yet.
Also, when I post the short story I’ll pop a link up here, or on my wordpress, or maybe even on my tumblr. I’ll also tell you if I win or not, (may or may not be likely). I suggest if you wanna participate or help vote you get an account, and vote or write! It’s fun, I promise. Other than that, I just learned how to use photobucket! Woo Hoo.
So I am sitting in my chair with the worst headache I’ve ever had, trying not to vomit and writing. Why am I telling you this? Because I needed something to make my brain work and this was the only thing that was working. I have to finish writing this current project before November, and it isn’t going too well. I have ideas for it, and I know where I’m going for it but finding time to write when I’m not busy, or sick, or doing something else that needs to get done is difficult.
So as of right now, I am struggling to write more with a pounding headache and I feel like I am producing some pretty weird shtuff. For example, I was talking to my friend and I came up with a new word. “Unobserveyness” is my new word that I shall use when I don’t notice something… yup. Well anyway, back to painfully trying to write and post and other fun stuffs like that.
So I am taking full advantage of the August Camp Nanowrimo, even though I just did the July Camp Nanowrimo. Why you ask? Because I had a project that needs finishing and editting. It will probably be really terrible when I go to read it, which might result in me rewriting the entire thing. I’ll be updating the word count after I edit the entire thing and continue with finishing it. You will see these updates on the side of the blog, through the word count widgets.
These word count widgets were coded by Diana Peterfreund for her website: http://www.dianapeterfreund.com , but she was gracious enough to email the coding to me and tell me how to edit them to fit my blog. Anyway, the word count widget you should direct your attention to is the one in the middle, titled Utano: A Rivalry Turns Dangerous this title is subject to change however so if it randomly changes, don’t be alarmed. If you wish to join me in my quest to make a novel you should do Camp Nanowrimo found here: http://www.campnanowrimo.org . Well have fun I must go wait for Pottermore and then poof to bed.
Oh okay I forgot something on here so I’m adding an addendum: The title that is subject to change, I’m open to suggestions so if you wanna provide some title suggestions, feel free to comment!

So my prom was last night and I must say it lived up to my expectations which means it absolutely SUCKED! Now does that mean all prom’s suck? probably not… see if I had had friends who actually you know cared and weren’t more focused on drama than having fun. Also if the DJ had been good then maybe I would have had a good time and actually have been dancing.
So summery: Prom will be lonely if you don’t make it fun with friends and other things, tell them to forget the drama and shit, just for this one night. Also it will SUCK if you don’t get over your nerves and ask some one even if its just as friends because if they say yes at least you know they won’t leave you alone. And finally REQUEST SONGS YOU want to listen to! Cuz other wise it will be non-stop grinding and grossness, so if you’re not into that, don’t go or have a song list ready to request.
Other than that I hope your prom is better than mine, and I will not be going back next year. not at all.
Ugh… I have been so dead for the past week or so. I’ve had a cold and I’ve been living off of Haal’s Relief Vitamin C drops. They don’t seem to be working and I haven’t been able to get a ton of sleep because I can’t breathe and the medicine doesn’t do much. So I was wondering since people seem to be looking at this if not reading it. Anyone have any suggestions for remedies? Herbal teas, etc. I don’t care as long as it works and isn’t illegal in the United States I’ll try it. I’m that desperate…
