I'm Totally Gonna Do This!!

At least, that's what I say now.

"This" is a 30 Day Drawing Challenge:

So, I'll work on that. But don't get your hopes up (because I definitely know you have, all you nonexistent readers).

And I'm Back

Writing went...well, it didn't go very far, let's just leave it at that.

So then I played the Sims, and it was lovely.

And then I got bored of that, and I thought, "Hey, I'll blog!"

So that's what I'm doing now. Duh.

For Christmas, my wonderful boyfriend got me a stuffed Dalek (it talks!), the Sonic Screwdriver of the Tenth Doctor (cos it's prettier than Eleven's), and a squishy stress ball cupcake. It was awesome. He's the bestest.

And the other day, we went out to lunch at a cafe that neither of us usually get to go to, but I love. Turns out one of our friends that graduated a couple years ago works there, and we got to visit with her for a while. Then we went across the street to a little antique shop, because we could. And he bought me an awesome teapot that's shaped like Big Ben (cos, you know, I'm a tad obsessed with England). It was awesome, and really sweet, and I lurve my new teapot.

Isn't that just adorable enough to make you want to vomit just a tad? That's what I was going for. 

And now it's...well, in one minute it will be Christmas Eve. Yay! I love Christmas. It makes me very happy. 

But now I'm very tired, and I want to go to bed.

So, goodnight!

I'm Trying To Write.

And it isn't working so well.

I really need to do this more often. Now that I've decided to be a writer and stuff. 

However, what my brain is trying to make me write sounds like a plot for an episode of Doctor Who had a baby with George Orwell's 1984. And then had a one night stand with every other dystopian novel ever written.

Which is weird, and not like me at all. I'm just trying to see where it takes me, I guess.

Well, right now I'm blogging, which isn't really helping me write at all. 

So, I'm gonna go back to that, I suppose. Or else, I'm going to get distracted by the Sims. Cos I bought that the other day. And it's very addictive. And distracting.

'Kay, bye bye now.

I Wish My Wifi Worked Better...

Bleh. Our new internet doesn't like me very much.

And my laptop, which is only two-ish years old (a year and a half, really), told me the other day that my battery is crap, and I need a new one. Well, not exactly in those words, but you get the drift. And batteries are apparently expensive! Not such great news for a soon to be broke college student.

Just had to whine about that for a bit, and I'm feeling slightly better.

Oh, no, wait, not done yet:

I hate winter. I'm sick of it. All it's good for is making me cold and sad and ill. No fun at all for me. Blech blech blech.

'Kay, I think I'm really done now.

Not much is up. Waiting for packages to be shipped. Waiting for myself to get some motivation. Just waiting, waiting on the world to change. Oh, wait, that's a John Mayer song. My bad.

So, what's new, what's new? Well, I always want to write stuff, but I can never think of what to write about, or any good storylines. It makes me really sad and stuff. So I'm just gonna keep thinking. Yep.

Today in my 2nd hour class, we went out to our local community charity organization to help sort and organize toys for the Toys for Tots program. It was actually quite fun, and there was the warm, fuzzy feeling of doing something nice for someone else. And I don't think I've ever seen so many toys. It was insane! I kept getting distracted; I do that a lot. You should see me in Wal-Mart sometime. Or really anywhere.

But anyways...still just looking forward to Christmas and the so-called holiday season. I've only got 4 more days of school left before a nice long break, so I think I can make it. Although I've already got three tests scheduled in those four days. Le sigh. 

And tomorrow I get to sit in on the new member interviews for theatre, so that's the first of my new senior-ly duties to attend to. I'm very excited; it's a rite of passage. 

Anywho, I'm either going to go to bed, or go back to playing Tiny Tower now. The latter's more probable at this point, sadly enough.

Ciao for now!

Who Has Two Thumbs, Speaks Limited French, and Completely Forgot They Had a Blog?

This moi! 


Oh well, I'm back now. Apparently. Which isn't really to say that anything interesting has been going on. It's almost Christmas; that's the most interesting thing right about now. I've been busy buying and making and wrapping presents, and so on and so forth. So...yep. 

One of these days, I'm gonna have to think of something interesting to say. Don't hold your breath.

 Other than that, I've been busy getting ready for college and whatnot. Scholarship applications don't fill themselves out, after all. And I've been thinking a lot lately about what I want from life. Yeah, it just got all profound in here. I used to want to be an actress more than anything, but after a lot of logical thinking, reality checks, and prioritising, I've realised that perhaps that's not the best course for me. I still want to act as much as possible, but I think it's not the best career choice. As long as I can do it, for a hobby or whatever, I'll be happy. I don't need to be famous, and the more I've been thinking about it lately, the more I've realised that I don't even want to be a "star" anymore. Celebrities have no privacy, no life, are often publicly ridiculed and slandered, and that's on a good day. On top of that, their careers often put a lot of strain on their family lives and personal relationships. And if that didn't sound like a well planned out research paper, then I don't know what does. All I want out of life is to be happy; plain and simple. I'd still love to live in a big city, and I've decided more and more that what I want to do is write. I want to be a writer, and also probably an editor, preferably of a fashion magazine or big time newspaper. Mhm. 

Now, whether or not this is more realistic than the other goal or not, I don't really know, but I can only hope that all works out in my favor. 

 So...that's about it, I suppose. And if there are any spelling mistakes, blame autocorrect.

 Oh yeah, I got an iPhone. Au revoir!
