September 10, 2016

Well, today I got a lot of writing and homework done.  I also did music and guitar practice.

Brunch was fun.  Me and my sister got Starbucks.  I hung out with my sister a lot today, actually.

Not much to tell here.  I slept in and it was just a kind of relaxing, down day.


On Reality

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

– J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The Big Short

I’m watching The Big Short on Netflix and so far it’s terrifying and offensive and I think it’s supposed to be that way.  It’s pretty awesome.

I’m not sure why I dignified this with a post, but I just thought I’d let you know what I’m doing on a Friday night – drinking tea and watching movies about the 2008 housing crisis.

Today was a good day.

I wasn’t anxious today.  Fiction writing class went well.  So did my meeting with disability support services about accommodations for my bipolar disorder.

I got lots of glorious story-writing done, I got to the bus stop just as the bus was pulling up, and when I got home a friend came over and me, the friend, and my sister all had pizza and brownies and watched funny videos on YouTube.

Lots of people are liking my latest posted fanfiction, I get to sleep in tomorrow, and life is good.

I feel SUPER lazy right now.  I’m in bed and it’s not even bedtime.  I was going to practice guitar today, but I think I’m just going to practice a lot alongside homework over the weekend.

Random thought of the moment: Since I’m writing Harry Potter fanfiction right now, I’ve got to admit, I’m really ready for Pottermore’s Patronus quiz to come out and then for that quiz to be ridiculously overanalyzed.  Because, like, I need this to happen for story writing purposes?  Also I’m dying to know what my own Patronus is?


September 8, 2016

There were high winds today and I couldn’t go outside to class because I was anxious.  This just made me feel guilty, which made everything worse.

I did lots of snacking on chips and tea and I watched The Finest Hours on Netflix.  I also talked a great deal to my family.

Someone in the apartment complex’s dog was howling all day.  I think the poor thing had been left inside alone.

I’ve been feeling restless and dissatisfied today, for some reason.

This is a little late, but yesterday after class I took my guitar downtown and had my first music lesson of the semester.

It went really well.  I bought a little guitar book and Doc gave me some basic chord exercises to practice.  He wants to give me a solid grounding in basic guitar before he moves me on to singing and songs.

Then I went to a pub and coffee house and had some pie and coffee, doing homework.

I met with my sister, and we went by a bagel deli in the same downtown area.  Then we walked home.  Lots of walking that day.  It was a fun day.

Came home and did the rest of my homework.

I finally figured out what I want to do for a story I’ve been planning for a while, so all in all it was a good day.

September 6, 2016

I was busy today.  I got up at 6 AM and I haven’t stopped since.

I went through three classes, two classes’ worth of homework, and I wrote 3 brand new chapters in my latest Harry Potter fanfic.  I also went grocery shopping with my sister.

I’ve joined the National Society of Leadership and Success.  They’ve invited me to be a member, and I accepted and paid.  Supposedly they’ll help me find jobs.  I’ve got good grades, an internship under my belt, a business minor, and a membership with a national honors society who can write me letters of recommendation.

I’ve done all I can to get a good job as an English major.

One embarrassing thing did happen today.  I had to leave my last class early because of a panic attack.  I tried to tell the teacher quietly, but he didn’t get the the hint, so I ended up having to announce it to the entire class.  It was pretty humiliating.

Tomorrow I finally get back into music lessons, but that should be fun and other than that tomorrow won’t be too hectic.  And then it’s almost the weekend!

September 5, 2016

Most of the day was spent with Mom and Dad driving us back to our apartment and helping us do various around the house things.  Then they said goodbye and headed for home.  School starts again tomorrow.

I did, however, get some writing done – posted another two chapters of my Harry Potter fanfic – and my sister and I had pot pies and ice cream for dinner.

This three day weekend has been very relaxing and I feel prepared for a busy day of school, writing, and chores tomorrow!

September 4, 2016

Brunch this morning, hash and eggs made by Dad, was entirely delicious.

I went to seen the latest Jason Bourne movie tonight with my family.  Lots of action packed adventure.  Then we went out to get pizza.  Fun times!

I also got another two chapters of my Harry Potter fanfic written today.  It’s posted online and people seem to like it.

Got a few menial chores done, along with all my homework.

All in all, a fun and productive day.
