Camp NaNo and all the things!

Work has me pretty busy right now despite signing onto do Camp NaNo for July, and I haven't had as much time to get the things I want to be written done. But it's cool, I'm not superwoman. I'm doing the best I can with all the curveballs thrown at me. So normally I sit and mope about all the things I didn't accomplish, but today I'd like to write out all the awesome things I've done. in no particular order.

I've prepared about five blogs to post, averaging 600 words each. They still need to be edited, but I wrote words!

I lost 10 pounds

Athena can spell her name

I'm helping a friend edit his book to the best of my ability to get him ready for a writing contest of sorts

I'm chugging away through SQL. I both love and hate it

I'm making my own application in QuickBase. It's both fun and challenging. 

I found my inspiration for writing a very completed character. 

I get out of bed every day.

Celebrate everything you do no matter how small society think it is. If it's big to you, it's big to you and celebrate it with cake. (Okay no cake.) Maybe a new book. You can't get fat from reading a good book.

I run a lot, you’d think I’d be skinny or something, but I run to cake; because food is love. (it’s not, stop eating your feelings)

After the Candy Holiday

After the Candy Holiday

Happy First day of November! It is unseasonably warm; I am both is love with it, and hate it. There is nothing fun about a drought. The Oregonian in me thinks it's not autumn until it's well below 60, but here we are, the day after Halloween and it's in the 80's with no chance of rain the next couple days. I'm ready for the cold rain, while curled up inside with a good book.

Nostalgia and gaming

Nostalgia and gaming

We always remember things better than they were. I don’t want to get political here, but the slogan, “make America great again”, turns my stomach. Stay with me, this is not a political post, you do you. I will always remember the 90’s as the best time to be alive. I was 6 in 1990, and 16 when the dreaded Y2K hit us. But we forget about the Clinton scandal, Anita Hill,

Update on my life

Oh my Goodness! My last post was back in April. I can do better than this, especially if this is the job I am passionated about to doing.
