Well, I didn’t get a lot of rest last night. I got plenty of sleep. But my dream included a murder mystery (with the detective being Sharpay from High School Musical) and witnessing death by suffocation and drowning. So…. yeah, I do not feel very well rested at all. And I stayed in bed later than I should, hoping to finish my dream on a different note.
On to more pleasent things, Dad wanted to do something with the family yesterday. He usually likes to do something with the family, which is one of the reasons why he’s awesome. He ended up taking us to see Wreck it Ralph. It was especially interesting given Dad’s line of work. Dad knows a lot about arcade games. In fact, when we watched the trailer and saw Cubert, Dad was able to recognize him. None of the rest of us knew who he was. Anyway, I enjoyed the movie (and I positively adored the short at the beginning) and it was good to have that before Jasmine and I leave. You know, in like…. two days.
Time just goes by way too fast these days. Not that I mind going back to school, I love being a student. It’s just… I have stuff I can do here, you know? Like writing.
I told you that I was actually managing to write something didn’t I? I still have trouble coming up with my own story, but this is a fairy tale retelling, so the story is already pretty much set up for me. And so far I’ve managed to get over 14, 000 words in it! Before that, my record for a continuous story was nearly 5,000. Lori promised to read what I have before I leave.
It’s just exciting at last be writing something, you know, since I’ve been dabbing into it for a over two years. I’m not planning on being a writer, I don’t even know if I want my family besides my sisters to read what I’m writing. But it fills a sort of yearning of mine to have something complete written. As I said, my goal is to have a collection of these sort stories which I have written. Just for the sake of having them. Which may seem weird to other people, but I’m not going to apologize for it.
Hopefully, I will be able to get more of that writing done today, before I have to move on to things like… packing and stuff.
