BACK FROM THE BLACK... (wait for it)... OUT!
Yeah, yeah. I actually couldn't wait till school started to come back from my BLACKOUT (what you people call, "unplugging"). I thought, no... that's CHEATING! So I compromised. I wrote it. Saved it. And then decided to post it the next day... Yeah.
I fell out of a plane, with a man on my back--purposely. They call it SKYDIVING! I'm gonna write a short about it, hopefully soon before my short-circuit memory... well you know.
Oh yeah. Got my first full request. No big.
I redesigned my blog a few times this summer, out of complete boredom. Could you tell I was listening to the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS at the time?
Okay, I know you all are prob gonna gross out when I tell you but, I tried dip for the first time in my life. At the beach. It was kinda fun. Kinda gross. Then I puked. On the beach. And it was just plain old GROSS. So there goes my tobacco days. I will admit it was peer pressure from one of my best-guy-friends who I totally CRUSH on.
I shopped at AE for the first time in my life! Spent $100 dollars, which I barely have... then felt really GUILTY and locked myself in the house for an entire week so as not to spend any money till my next paycheck.
Got a second job (you might remember I mentioned it about a month before my BLACKOUT) at this BBQ place. The guy hired me based on my smile, didn't even look at my resume. Seems nice right? Nope. He's a total douche. And I'm not being mean, he's a COMPLETE bigot and just plan old JERK. He kinda skeeves me out to be honest. However the money is good. So I'm not complaining (at least not to his face). But def trying to get outta there.
Learned to CASHIER at my other job. Another restaurant. Been there for 2 years now... been trying to get out of there for 1 and 1/2 years. Dirty minded OLD people and creeper bikers aren't my THING.
HA! You thought I was just not gonna tell you about my first FULL there, huh? I got the news while I was on VAY-CAY in Ithaca, NY to see family. I had just woken up from a nap and was kinda groggy when I looked at my email on my CELLULAR. My face musta looked really funny cause my mom got really worried. I tried to speak to tell her the GOOD NEWS but my mouth wouldn't work. Couldn't really breath straight. My aunt (who's a nurse) ran into the room because she thought I might be CHOKING. Finally I gave up trying to form my own way of telling them and just read the freaking email. Couldn't get it out to the AGENT right away though since I wasn't at home, but I made sure to email and assure that it was on its way.
Anyway, I totally got addicted to those newspaper CRYPTIC quote things. Where it's a coded message and each letter is assigned a new letter. Found the APP online and can't stop playing it.
Took HISTORY OF ROCK this summer. A 5-week summer class. I'm not a fan of history stuff... at all. But I love music, and esp. rock so I figured, "what the heck." FLIPPIN' loved it! ACED all my papers and even got a 96 on my final paper, passing the class with a 94. Too bad my other history classes can't be like that... we watched a bunch of movies and listened to MUSIC all day!!! =/
UGH. So you know how I had big dreams for SUMMER 2010? Two novels, one summer. Ring any BELLS? Write-a-holics Anonymous. Yeah, my eyes were bigger than my schedule. All those things I mentioned in the above (plus random BEACH trips with SEXY best-friend boy and friends in tow, a concert, some trips, a 5-week summer class) took up the majority of my summer. DL Hammons, you were right. Ha you asked if I had a LIFE outside of writing. I said NO. But apparently my friends think I DO. Anyway, I'm taking my challenge into the fall and early winter. I still plan on finishing two books, but I'm hoping to get them both done before DECEMBER now.
