School.....

The spring schedule is out, and I'm not sure which class I'm going to be taking. I want to take more writing classes, but because of when they start, I don't know that I'll be able to make it work, so I may just end up taking a History class. Not one of my favorite subjects, but anything to put off doing math or science :P

Reception stuff

We got plates, cups and napkins today. It's all coming together. The wedding is only five weeks away, and we'll be there in no time at all.

I'm getting a good deal of homework done, too. My final portfolio is really my only project remaining. I'll have that done by the due date, of course. I also have some critiques for my class mates' short stories. Half a page is easy to manage for each story.

I've started reading Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clark. I read the first chapter, and it's a pretty good beginning. She jumps around a couple of times, catching me off guard and making me lose focus, but other than that, it's cool. It's like a well written, kind of like a narrated APA text book. So far, though, I can't think of a single person who I would recommend the book to because I don't know anyone who would actually enjoy it. I know I am so far, though I've just begun. Anyway, I'm watching an episode of Samurai Champloo. Then I'm off to bed and reading.

RPGs

I just signed up to run a playtest for the Dresden Files RPG. I've never GMed, but I want to run this game because I love the books and I enjoy RPGs, so I want to create stories with my own characters in this world. This way I can do with a good deal of participation.

Turkey tomorrow.

I like Thanksgiving. It's one of my favorite holidays. I get to spend time with my family, and for the first time since Portland (the only time in my life), I get to spend it with someone NOT related by blood.

P.S. It snowed last night, none of it stuck to the road, and the roads are dry. The speed limit is 35 miles and hour NOT THIRTY!!! It's NOT DANGEROUS TO DRIVE THE SPEED LIMIT WHEN THE SNOW IS ONLY ON THE SIDEWALK!!!! GOT IT?!!??!

good:)

Snow

Maybe tomorrow. Awesome!

I get four days off, I have my final portfolio to work on for school, but it's not due until DEC 12. I have plenty of time to work (not procrastinate). I'm going to go home in a few minutes and have supper with Emily.

Just over five weeks!

Six weeks

In six weeks I'll be on a plane to London with my wife:)

I have to begin work in about one minute, so I'll be working for three hours, then I'll do homework and chores for a little while.

I feel like a dork

So I freaking FORGOT to vote this last tuesday. I just kept putting it off until I could do some research about the items on the ballot, and then I forgot. DANG IT! I think voting is one of the most important things a citizen of this nation can do. I won't forget next year, no doubt. Out of all of the times I could forget, this wasn't the worst time. But still, now I can't complain about the results :P

Anyway. on to homework

Brr....

It's chilly at work today. I work in a warehouse, and it has a heater, but it's still a warehouse, so it's colder than I'd like.

Holy Crap

Looks like Arsenal tied with Man. U. in their game this morning, 2-2, making the standings even in the league. They now both hold 27 points, but Man. U. has played one more game than Arsenal has.

P.S. NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. November. 50,000 words in 30 days.

Okay

So I've started writing some stuff for my book story, but I'm three pages in and stuck. I have concepts and ideas, but no plot! That's the problem I've run into at the moment. I need to get something out on paper, and I need to work on my final story, too.

Hrm....happy hour tonight.

Not much to say

I haven't blogged in a while because I haven't really had anything to say. I have some stuff in the works, but some of it is still hush hush, and the rest is writing, so you already know about that.
