Recapping november and writing since the end of NaNoWriMo....

Well, I hit 12k for my nano novel. Not great but it's still a pretty significant amount of writing to accomplish (for me). It averages out to like 4k/week but really I think I was doing more like 7k/week for the last two weeks which is not too shabby.

Since then I've been giving myself a tiny brain break by writing a fairly serious take on a crack Inception Kink Meme prompt. It's good. I started it about two weeks ago and have a little over 8k written. Not too shabby at all considering it was the last week of instruction + dead week (ie study for finals week) + FINALS this week. Am going to try to write 1.2k on it today and hit around the 9.5k mark if everything goes according to plan. I'm confident the entire fill should reach 15k possibly 17k. After that I need to write a couple short fills for Angst_Bingo since I REALLY want to write a blackout for that this round and April is the deadline (I think that means 25 fills at a minimum of 500 words/fill but knowing me they'll all be closet to 700-1500/fill)

Am looking at possibly being expelled from school. I'm basically 100% certain I'm going to fail one of my classes and theres a cap on how many classes you can drop in the course of your ENTIRE academic career which I used up last yr. What kind of policy is that? Ugh. So I'm going to get an F and I'm feeling pretty worried that this will lower by gpa too much. In the event of possibly expulsion though my plan is to finish my AA via online classes with SPS and get a job and save up enough money to go to film school.

I might break and buy Adobe Creative Suite before I buy a kayak. I knoooooow i've been saving up my tips for like three months now for a kayak and i almost have $700 (i'm thinking that i'll need 750-900 depending on the cost of the roof rack i need for the Kia) but omg, i want CS, well specifically i want photoshop but i figure one day i'll probably need inDesign and i know i could use Dreamweaver and Flash now so i might as well buy them altogether so i only have to pay for a [significantly cheaper] upgrade a few years down the road.


tips were SO BAD this week. i barely made $45 probably. hopefully i'll hit a little more than $60 after tomorrows shift since last sunday Cuz and i did much better than weekdays. payday not for another week almost. i guess its a good thing i had to return the boots.

i think i'm going to have to give up eating out and buying coffee every day. and buying dinner at work. i'd probably save, gosh, $45-60 a weak if i did that. then i could probably afford CS and a kayak at the same time. *sigh* being responsible. why am i always reminded to buy stocks on the weekend when the market is closed? *rolls eyes at self*

I have a plan for sure to get caught back up on NaNo. we'll see how well it works though since 3/4 days i have to implement it are workdays *eeps*

must remember to make essay corrections tomorrow for monday.

Stargate Atlantis was interesting today. esp like the end with Rodney. and the beginning with jealous!rodney. and the part in the middle with befuddled!rodney. and sad beaten down/whumped john was very sweet and heart breaking to watch as well. pretty good ep all around. i started rewatching s.5 but stopped because i havent quite recovered from watching The Shrine the first time.

so in summary, want CS so can make SGA icon prettiness *sigh* so so so bad out of practice.

*boggles* I just hit 10,001 words! 20% finished. I am so amazingly happy and amazed. Course that doesn't mean i can stop today, I still have like 3000 more words to make up for falling behind this week. But this is still a milestone imo. I'm shocked and amazed I've stuck with this story so far but i guess I shouldnt be since its hardly more than an aggrandized retelling of stuff thats mostly already happened in real life. i guess anyone can ramble on in a journal for a billion words right?

i went to the library today too, returned about 8 items since they were threatening to send a collection agency after me *shiver* just hope this appeases them and i dont have to pay any fines. books are expensive!

i cancelled on M last night because i was working and i knew that i'd need to work on nano. she hasnt responded to me at all. i find it kind of odd. i cant really imagine her being angry but i guess its possible. *sigh* it's not like she makes a whole lot of time for me so she can deal with it. nano is only for one month.

i havent finished this weeks SGA but there was something i was going to say... you know, beside just "oh boys! just nerds!" how are they canceling this lovely lovely show?

i broke and bought "Knives Don't Have Your Back" by Emily Haines. beautiful album. just amazing and lazy and gorgeous.

I fell a few days behind on my nano novel due to family drama, see previous post, but i worked a little harder yesterday and regained a little ground. Still way behind but i just need to write about 3000 words today and tomorrow each and i should be just about back on track, woo hoo!

so long as my story itself doesnt lose steam i think i might *actually* be able to do this this year. i'm so amazingly happy. and i dont think it's too likely to lose steam, i finally roughed out an aprox word count outline which is fairly monumental for me.

currently having to restrain myself from going crazy and buying a bunch of stuff on iTunes. oh the joys of a credit card :)

new episode of SGA tonight! Can't wait. oh show, why are you cancelled? finally forced myself to read through the entire character release sheet for SG:Universe and omg, it really is as bad as fandom thinks. its all "20 somethings" and i have this horrible inkling that the sarcastic math guy is going to be as wretched as whatisname on Sanctuary -_- (that guy reminds me of cappachino!boy at work, its very disconcerting)

... is just around the corner. it's so exciting. I think I shall definitely be using my journal to keep track of my novel since LJ has bene so nice this year and supportive to the event.

Check it Out!

if you've never heard of nanowrimo before.

So i've gradually begun making icons again. just sort of easing myself back into it. cruising LJ for current "it" icon styles and etc.

School is CRAZY. i honestly didnt think senior year would be all that much different from years previous because i've always been busy but no, it is, and it's terrible. i have 8 classes plus senior project (which is a JOKE, but don't get me startedon that) plus there is all this applying to college stuff i have to do, essay writing, info gathering, appling for scholarships. and of course i want to do none of it, i just want to hang out and watch Battlestar Galactica reruns and knit but alas i cannot.

i started a knitting circle with some gal pals of mine, it's very fun. i'm currently working on a patchwork blanket (made out diamonds not squares though) i've got 71/170 -_- but i've only been working on it just shy of three weeks so i figure if i can speed up today and tomorrow and keep up the pace i should be done in another 3-3 1/2 weeks which would be cool.

but yay! NaNoWriMo, just in time to make me even busier.
