I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m getting better at taking care of myself. I don’t forget to eat anymore, and I actually go downstairs and make myself something good to eat instead of just using instant pasta or rice and miscellaneous meat. Like today: I had an apple with peanut butter for breakfast, a grilled cheese for lunch (not enough cheese for my liking…), and a huge stir fry with tons of veggies for dinner.
I don’t know why I’m saying this. I’m just proud of myself.
The soda bread I made yesterday is divine. It’s be nice if Dad SLICED our loaf instead of breaking it in 3 parts. Now I can’t have toast with it. I can only butter random chunks of it.
Stupid word count limits...Me: *Sees that Canada Writes has begun again*
Me: OH GOSH I CAN SUBMIT CROWN OF MADNESS.
Me: Wait no I can't.
Me: It's about 15,000 words over the limit.
"The goal is not to turn kids into your kind of adult, but rather, better adults than you have been. Progress happens because new generations grow and develop and become better than the previous ones.”
From Adora Svitak’s talk “What adults can learn from kids.” In her talk, Adora makes a case for why adults shouldn’t underestimate kids. And they shouldn’t. Kids are doing amazing things. Let’s just take a second to think about how Adora organized her first TEDxYouth event when she was just 12.
This weekend, young people around the world are attending, organizing, speaking at, and watching TEDxYouthDay events — TEDx events dedicated to the ingenuity of kids worldwide. Every year we’re taken aback by the amazing things that come out of these events, and we think you should be, too. Find a TEDxYouthDay event near you to attend or watch live online here.
this is so effing important and i’m super impressed after read her transcript
Didn’t go for a run because it was drizzling out D:
For those of you wondering, the doctor’s appointment went well. I got talked at again, but whatever. They found some sort of fibrous pocket (??? How they described it made it seem like the opposite of a pocket) and they want to keep an eye on it. Another pelvic ultrasound booked for December 17th, and if they find it’s grown from now to then… Well, I’m not going to think about that. Right now, they believe I have something quite common. Need to get my hormones checked via blood test, though -.-
Anyway, let’s get to today.
- Write 4,000 words of anything (I only got to just over 2,000 words yesterday because I was out for like 3 hours!)
Calculate how many cookies I need to bake for circle on Sunday
Make Dad’s friend’s luck charm (I WILL DO IT TODAY I PROMISED HIM!)
- Send that letter to Polar Expressions Publishing (:D!!!!)
Right, so that is what I’m doing. Thursdays are known for being crappy, sluggish days, but I won’t let it get that way!
Word Count: 0/4,000
Only halfway through today’s word count, and it’s already after 4 D: I just want to lay around and eat apples like a god. Is that too much to ask? Yes?
Maybe working on a different project will help me reach the goal.
Word Count: 1,997/4,000
27.Do you plan on moving out within the next year?: I hope so, if I get a job and therapy.
33.Who was the last person you drove with?: My dad.
45.Your thoughts of long distance relationships?: They’re okay. I’ve only ever experienced one. Fine if you can stand the distance and see each other often enough. It’s rather easy to get disconnected. Partners shouldn’t be able to switch off their phone or turn off their computer every time they get in an argument or don’t want to talk. They should be forced to deal with their shit. And in LDR’s, it’s all too easy to just turn away from issues like that.
Other than some major witchcraft and possibly dressing up as Daenerys Targaryen (and my dad as Jon Snow), no D: Trying to get together with my friends because they know people and would possibly drag me to a party. Who wouldn’t want me at a party? I’d bring cookies and shit.
All that, and then watching scary movies until I’m immobilized by fear.
