I’m disgusted with the fact that I spent my childhood learning about world peace and the importance of being kind to one another, because as I grew up I reality decided to slap me in the face. It’s disgusting… all of this violence is just disgusting. It makes me want to puke.

Writing Update

So I’m still trying to convince my little sister to do illustrations for my online series (yep still working away at it). I could do it myself but I feel like she could add some really cool elements to her images that would really compliment the chapters.

Let’s hope she agrees!

Book 12…You’re Almost Mine!

I’ve been searching all of my usual book stores for this book and online and haven’t been able to find it! Been looking for two years…and its apart of a series that I own and I basically own all the books but one.

See two years earlier I was visiting my grandparents and they always take me to Coles or Chapters depending on if we go to the mall or straight to the book store…so I bought two books from the series and before buying them she said, “Are you sure you have book 12, because I’m pretty sure that you don’t.”

And I said, “I think I have it.” and naively purchased 13 and 14.

So when I returned home I was shocked to find that I didn’t have book 12 and therefore couldn’t read book’s 13 and 14. FOR TWO YEARS!

freakingout

…can you sense my frustration? I looked…everywhere.

Finally, during my reading break my parents were like “I think you can just ask Chapter’s to order the book for you.” so I was like, “Oh now you tell me.”

Sadly I didn’t order the book while I was home. My dad drove me back and after we grabbed lunch he decided to bring me to Chapters and said, “You need to order than book right?”

So then I was all ready to buy my book and then my dad buys it for me! I was like, “Eh? Wha? My money righ’ here man? What you doin’?”

But he bought it.

AND I GOT THE EMAIL SAYING IT’S IN THE STORE!

Thanks Dad. That really means a lot.

Dear R2 (Lol…I love Star Wars…but this isn’t a Star Wars Post. Sorry!)

This is all new to me, so I guess its normal to feel a little nervous and sometimes even a bit insecure. However, I want you to know that whenever we hang out you make me feel calm, and happy and I feel like I can be myself around you.

Thank you for being my friend.

…my blogs starting to sound like a journal or something.

Sorry for posting this on a blog that you don’t know I have…I’ll tell you in person someday. You really are a great friend. P.S I’m going to call you R2 from now on. It’s just too perfect! I’m gonna go laugh like a total dork now and hope no one hears me!

WHAHAHAHA!

…That was evil sounding. O.O

Writing Update!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, so I’d like to begin this post by apologizing for that. I was really hammered with assignments for school. I’m on break now so thankfully I’m able to focus on my personal projects again.

I’ve got a short story that I’d love to share with all of you. It’s the first one that I’ve written other than a children’s book that I find decent, however it’s currently being marked so I can’t share it until I’ve received it back. I don’t want my professor to think I took it from someone named Orion, even though we’re the same person.

I was extremely shocked by the way my story turned out. Some of my YA fiction contains scenes with violence but my short story had an intense amount of it. I’ve never written a story like this before. It’s slightly creepy and slightly exciting all at the same time. If I look at it one way, it means that I’ve grown as a writer…look at it the other way and it means that I might have some deep dark aggression buried within me. Either way…shocked by the result.

I’m also hoping that I’ll be able to get lots of work in on my series that I’d like to post online throughout the week. I’d like to include pictures with the story, and if I’m lucky I’ll have it up by the end of the month. It needs a lot of work though, so I don’t want to make any promises. I’d really like to finish the first section of the story before I go back to school though. Once it gets closer to exams I’m going to have to manage my time better.

It’s getting late and I’d like to get a bit of work in before I fall asleep. I’ll blog again real soon!

Stay golden!

Surprising My Little Sister

So last month my sister’s favourite DS game went in the wash. Well…all her DS games went into the wash but her favourite one was the only one that didn’t recover after the tragic incident.

So today I had to go pick up some groceries and I decided to walk around downtown, because there were a few shops I wanted to check out. I never left campus last year because I didn’t have to buy food and I was always home on the weekends (I couldn’t sleep). While I was walking I came across this little video game store and decided I’d pop in and look around.

Then girl asked if she could help me find a specific game and I told her I was looking for “Fire Emblem.” The girl thankfully had the game because I couldn’t find a copy of it on the self, and I bought it.

I’d felt like getting something for my little sister all day. I saw earrings and necklaces that she might like and I saw some cool posters but I remembered how heartbroken she looked when he game didn’t work…so I spent as much as I did on groceries to buy her a new copy.

It isn’t her birthday or anything. I just felt like surprising her. I can’t wait until she see’s it.

SERIOUSLY!?

I was nice enough to clean the bathroom by myself this morning and it’s already messy again! Seriously you guys?

How do you make that much of a mess in like…4 hours!? How!?

I’m just going to…pretend like I saw nothing. I’m going to go about the rest of my evening…enjoying this delicious food and trying to get some more homework done.

Not exactly looking forward to my one class tomorrow. Oh well. It might get better…it might not.

Thought Process

Text me. Text me. Text me. Text me.

Can you just text me?

I’m not texting first again. I’m not going to seem desperate.

GAH!

Why!?

I ate too much.

I don’t want to seem annoying.

What if they don’t text me all week?

They’re busy. Stop freaking out.

I want to go back to bed. I’m tired.

ABCDEFG…

I need to buy an envelope.

Well…I do have homework to do.

I just want to sleep.

I just want you to text me.Talk about something random. I really don’t care.

La la la!

Because the sky is blue it makes me cry.

Oh brain. You’re so brainy.

Tick tock. 3 o’clock.

I’m gonna go sleep and when I wake up there better be a message from you.

Or not…

I mean…you could text me tomorrow.

Or…whenever.

I guess.

Not like you have to.

I really need to use the bathroom.

Why does it have to rain?

Homework…why do you exist? Be gone with you.


Surprisingly enough, this counts as part of my homework.

Sit and write down whatever thoughts come to your head. What do you think about?

I think… I don’t understand this whole texting thing. I also think I’m overthinking. I also think I really…really need to use the bathroom. Roomie get out of the shower! I gotta go so bad!

Ugh….why can’t my head be quiet for more than a minute?
