Seems like life has been busy lately. In case you couldn't tell from the title, I am here to apologize for my inactivity.
Except that would imply that I am actually sorry and in my heart I am not.
I really think I'm neato, even in my current slug state, so I suppose I should just own that fact and turn my nose up at people.
Yesterday I was too demotivated to pack carrots for my lunch. I eventually packed them. Around 1 AM.
Mah premium is running out. : <
I've been a bit of a slacker on writing but I've gone but to trying to edit/finish the When You Wish series. It's technically done-ish and the first two books are edited and rewritten, though they probably need another run through. I really wanna get the last one up to a level of decency where I do not have to cringe when I read it though. Such is my goal. I think I used to be faster about these things.
Work has been a crazy series of strange events and ups and downs.
I blame it partially for my laziness.
I started climbing again and doing more volunteering at the gym. And I got new climbing shoes. They're purple. My heart is happy.
My roommate and I have also started a fish tank. Currently we have one upside down catfish, a pleco, snails, lotsa gupsies, a mickey mouse fish, one white and one black bubble fish, a bamboo shrimp, and an army of ghost shrimp, one of which is currently preggo.
We had to rehome our dwarf frogs after they slaughtered everything in the tank, but they are doing well in solitary and their new owners adore them.
Hari finally grew! She's about Tifa-sized now. Still a smallish cat but not a complete midget. She'll be a year soon and her and Fevy get along so well now.
I also saw/read Divergent. While there are aspects of the books that I liked, I wasn't too impressed overall. Mainly due to the writing quality being bad, the "borrowing" from a lot of similar books, poor plot structuring/world building, and the author just being overall annoying (srsly? She included theme songs in the back?). I did like the movie though, more than the book actually. I hated Tobias in the book - the guy is such a weenie and it's hard to convince me that he's the equivalent of a Navy Seal. He was better in the movie but the romance still felt a lil forced. I DID really like 300: Rise of an Empire despite its crappy reviews - it was a fun movie.
And my supa dupa boyfriend visited for a week!
I miss heeem and have plans to kidnap him for longer next time.
I have also decided I want another tattoo. A watercolor one most likely on my ribs, but I am unsure of the placement as I hear that's kinda painful. We shall see. I know vaguely the design I want.
I think this will be my last one though. Dang, tattoos are addictive.
Seems like I haven't been very involved in the writing community on here and I hate to think I'm integrating too much into the real world *gasp*. So if anyone has a piece that they would like critique on or would like to trade pieces or have a general books and writing nerd chat, hit me up!
