    Random Life: Changing One of My Goals Already

    For some reason, I thought it would be a great idea to study a foreign language this year. To clarify, the goal of studying a language is not the problem. I took French for a year in high school. LOVED it. Then my parents moved to boonyville. They only had Spanish. So the one Spanish kid at school had to take Spanish. It’s so…a bunch of things. So I was forced to take Spanish with a teacher who was lovely, but who moved so slowly through the material that I thought I was going to lose my mind. She was literally supposed to move twice as fast because they’re on…

    Final Reading Update of 2019 & 2020 Goals

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Happy 2020! Confetti canyon and all that jazz. 😀 It’s New Year’s Day and what better day to wrap up the previous year and lay the foundation for the new year than New Year’s Day?! Also, it’s Wednesday. And on Wednesdays, we post a blog. ^_^ (Mean Girls reference for the win.) First, what books did I finish in December? 59: The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek Author: Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal Genre: Horror/Supernatural Rating: 5 stars I was surprised by how good this was, but I probably shouldn’t have been.

    Goals: 2018 Wrap Up and 2019

    GUYS! 😀 It’s here! The last post of the year! ^_^ First – still working on the same story. Ha. Actually working. And for the first time in I don’t know how long, I haven’t gone back and edited the first chapter a gazillion times. I was happy with it, so I moved on. Didn’t even know that was possible. I was definitely dragging my feet a lot, but one weekend I started thinking about a musical adaption idea I have and how I should write the idea down (and a couple of others) so I’ll remember to check in on it later, and naturally, I got super excited and…

    WIPMarathon Check-In #5 (December/January)

    So glad I had this update this week to kick my butt into getting something done. Never underestimate the necessity and power of pure force. ^_^ Things I’m Glad I Did in 2013: Hmm…I forgot about this part. I talked about my year over here, but as far things I’m glad I did…I’m glad I entered the two contests I entered. Nothing too exciting happened, but I did them, and I know how to find out about them now. I’m also glad I started hanging out with a friend at a coffee shop. I didn’t want to, but it’s been a lot of fun, and it is nice to leave…
