hmm. What's going on.

It's cold here! Which is weird! But I'm outside in a sweatshirt and my feet are FREEZING (because I'm wearing flip-flops) but it's cold!

I don't have internet at home...the router's screwed up, dunno why. I may not have internet at home for the next month (oh my!). Ummm...hmmm.

So. I gave up on the nanowrimo thing because when my computer crashed it ate it all. I'm contemplating having a NeNoWri10 (nebulia novel writing 10 days) and just totally ruining my life and destroying what little sanity I might possess by writing 50K words in 10 days.

Let's see if we can get back on our feet, hmm.

hahahahahahahano. It's not gonna happen. But I'm gonna give it a shot. I'll plot until nov. 20, and then it's off to the races. When I start babbling like a maniac, you might want to give my mom a call, k? XD

So it's cold here, and I don't have internet and I'm homesick. I'm happy about the cold though. I'm also sad because my spanish class for this month finishes on Friday and I really like my teacher. Que lastima. D:

Also, my new favorite thing about Costa Rica:

Age at which you can marry: 15
Age at which you can have consensual heterosexual sex: 18

…wait, what?

XD

um...yeah.

Oh, wait! Here:




You're The Guns of August!

by Barbara Tuchman

Though you're interested in war, what you really want to know is what
causes war. You're out to expose imperialism, militarism, and nationalism for what they
really are. Nevertheless, you're always living in the past and have a hard time dealing
with what's going on today. You're also far more focused on Europe than anywhere else in
the world. A fitting motto for you might be "Guns do kill, but so can
diplomats."




Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.




Obviously, they didn't have Les Mis among their choices, because...really. :D

haha, no. But seriously, it's pretty accurate. If I were to be more politically active than I am. XP

Sometimes taking three years of Latin really helps me.

Other times it doesn't.

Like the imperfect tense. In Latin, the imperfect tense is used to describe a verb you starting doing but never necessarily finished, or you were interrupted, like "I was talking to Susie and then I got shot" or something. "I was talking" is in imperfect. It's generally a "was/were + verb" kind of thing.

Which is something entirely different in Spanish; just a basic gerund. Which in Latin gerunds were not basic at all, but in Spanish they are. D:

No, the imperfect tense is used to describe something you used to do but don't do now, I think. I'm still trying to figure it out.

I'm also having problems with indirect pronouns. I'm beginning to follow them when I read them or have to use them for homework, but I can't even fathom putting them into actual sentences during my conversations. Good lord.

Somewhere between 1500 and 2000 words, I think. I will continue! I will persevere! I will be awesome! :)

WAHOO!

but instead i'm working on my most recent original fic idea.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy, as I've mentioned before, was one of the most inspiring books I've ever read, and my second favorite book of all time. And I've finally begun formulating a vague idea I've had from The Road, and I've been trying to emulate McCarthy's style in a way, because I love how he writes. The plot is more inspired by the work of the artist Falling You (check them out on Magnatune.com--they're AWESOME). Anyway, here's kind of the opening.

added about 400 words to NaNoWriMo ust now. I'm still horrendously behind--15K and a little more, but I'm going to catch up over Thanksgiving.

Speaking of that, my article came out on Saturday in Imagine! And it was amazing! I'm so happy with how it turned out--it's AWESOME!

*dies from joy*

My back has been killing me for the past couple of days. I think I'm sleeping funny, not to mention I'm not getting enough sleep and stressing myself out, and then my period started this morning, so backaches galore, and homework is raping me, and college apps, and aaaahhhhhhhg

going to bed now. before I die from crazy.

ugh. Sooooo tired.

TP'd the girls going to stte last night--got like 4 hours of sleep. It was a lot of fun (I loved it! I felt like Santa, only more awesome!) Not feeling well on top of it.

Opening night was tonight--it went pretty well. I got flowers! *happy*

NaNoWriMo is going well--right now I'm a little behind, but not like I was last year. Not to mention that I've got some momentum going. I feel pretty good about the story, actually.

And I got a job! At the vet center I applied to last week! I start on Thursday!

Yay!

*snore*

Right then, my [livejournal.com profile] spook_me fic, aside from being a day late is turning into a chapter fic.

Gasp!

I've got to get it done by next Wednesday, so I can devote my life to NaNoWriMo on Thursday, yesplz.

But here it is:

Title: empty as the sky
Fandom:: Rurouni Kenshin
Rating: Let's say...for now, T, for gore-ish stuff, and future language and stuff. I dunno yet, it's still forming in my head.
Summary: Kaoru is on earth to help people let go of the darkness within them. Kenshin is on earth despite the fact that he has come to terms with his own darkness. Together, they discover what it means to really live, and how to let go. [modern AU, KK, zombies and ghosts galore]

Wait...Undead? )
nebulia: a nebula (such great heights)
So, I gave up on NaNoWriMo. The thing is, though, I feel okay with it. Those last couple of days it was just no fun to write; I was adding wordcount just because I needed to and I was bored out of my mind. Writing's no fun if I hate it; so I feel okay that I quit. Because I wasn't doing something I loved. In December, I plan to make a Nebulia Writing Month...and I'll edit a couple more horrors chapters and finish another Dark Roses chapter. Then I'll see what I can do about updating (GAH!)

In other news, I've definitely been writing. I don't know if any of the ideas I've had are any good, but I'm detirmined to write and angsty Matantei Loki fic and I also want to make Spirited Away dark and creepy. Because it would be really good dark and creepy. Not to mention the post-volume-three Kami-Kaze smut-plotless-fic. If you haven't read Kami-Kaze, go read it. Now. I think it's my second-favorite manga, after Angel Sanctuary. Third's probably RK, and By the Sword, Saiyuki, Her Majesty's Dog, DoD, and Black Cat are probably up there.

But I digress. I've also got a couple of RK fics...foremost presently in my mind in this fandom are two fics I'm researching but haven't actually started writing yet...*sigh* One's the childhood of Kaoru--from birth literally up until the first page of RK (I've got the beginning and end written). It's really going to be just this absolutely huge character exercise for Kaoru, because there's her, Oguni-sensei, Maekawa-sensei, Uramura, and a smidgen of Tae, but all other characters have to be original.

So that's the news. I babysit tonight...if I can pick up connection I might do something. What, I dunno.

Last night fianlly picked up Ergo Proxy. I only watched the first half of the first episode, but it looks amazing. and the DVD came with the OST...which is fabulous.

And I have a new idol, along with Victor Hugo, Ghandi, Buddha, Milton and Einstein: Moses Mendelssohn. Freakin' sweet, man.

I'm thinking of giving up. I've just lost total desire to finish or even write. the crack is fun, but I'm considering killing someone or something. The problem with that, though, is I've been kind of skipping around and stuff, so yeah. I'm just totally bored with it. And last year, I knew what I wanted to write, and, even now, I don't mind adding to horrors every once in a while. I just have absolutely no idea what to write anymore, and no desire to do anything more with it. I like the characters, just not the sotry, and I'm so far behind that the dask is absolutely daunting.

Gah.

And I have a lot of other stuff on my mind about writing...writing during NaNoWriMo really makes me want to write. Lots of stuff. And maybe since FFN is okay.

And Kousuke from Spiral reminds me of Enishi. Darker glasses and spiky hair. And how do Kousuke and Rio sit on those jungle gyms without falling off, especially how they sit in volume two?

Agh! I hate NaNoWriMo!!!! Why do I torture myself like this every year?

And being beaned by stuffed animal puppets isn't that painful, is it?

and Eyes is sooooo hot.

18, 189 words and counting. Pretty good for someone who was at 10000 yesterday morning.

No school today--yay!

Cousins in town. From Colorado. I like my cousins. I actually like them a lot; they're pretty cool. My older cousin and I have, right now, the best relationship we've had in years, seriously. The past couple of years we've been pretty wary of each other, but now we're actually talking to each other. He's more cheerful now; for a while he was all emo-I-hate-the-world. My middle cousin--a girl--and I get along as always, despite the fact that I'm a total tomboy and she's punkpreppunk. A little bit prep, a little bit more punk, but not enough to dye her hair. My younger cousin and I are cool as always, so it's all good.

I work tonight. Fortunately, I work the end as opposed to orders, so I actually know what I'm doing. But then I don't work until next Wednesday, so that's good too. I think I need another job, but I'm gonna stick this out until at least the end of the semester. That's my goal.

NaNoWriMo is coming along, but I'm still horrendously behind. I'm working on thast as soon as I finish the post.
So that's next. I want to be at 35,000 words by the end of break. *crosses fingers* That's a little less than 5,000 words a day, but I've written that much in a day in the past, so I think I cana do it. Bring on the unimportant dream sequences and sappy romance flashbacks and random fandom charries!

yay. I got almost ten hours of sleep last night, so it's all good.

For the past seven days: from Monday to Sunday, I have spent more time at school than I have anywhere else. How screwy is that?

NaNoWriMo is meh...it's coming along, I guess, and that's all good and wonderful. The goal is a thousand words a day, and I'll have that soon. I've decided every time I touch the file I'll at at least 500 words, if not more.

Just discovered Rammstein. Wow. Pretty damn cool, if I may say so. I like them a lot. My musical tastes are really expanding, especially with the discovery of LimeWire; now I can get music I've always wanted to check out but have never gotten the chance to because I'm consistently broke. For a while there, I was into a lot of hard rock/heavy metal, and then I went more mellow, but now I'm liking them both and intermixing them. Also, Sting's new ablum is pretty firkcin' fabulous; he redid a bunch of John Dowland's--a Renaissance composer--with a friend of his, and they both play the lute. The CD's called Songs From the Labyrinth. Check it out; it's really amazing. The music is georgeous.

So that's that. I'll probably update another chapter of horrors soon, maybe even tonight, so keep a sharp eye. Other than that, don't expect much from me this week. I have a huge AP Euro project due on Friday and, of course, there's NaNoWriMo, and then I have to clean my room before CBLL and my movie weekend. So ta-da!

Wow. Just got back from our matinee and night show. It went really well, but I'm exhausted. I was at school from 11:30 to 10:30. AHHH!

Samurai 7 volume 5 was fabulous, but WHY OH WHY DID IT HAVE TO END THERE? I mean, whiat is with ending episodes (particulalry volumes and seasons) on CLIFFHANGERS!? ARGH!!!!!

Sheesh. Just as Kambei's about to get his head cut off (but you know he won't; he's got something planned) and I'm thinking, "Oh, Katsu, for once, please don't show up and save the day JUST yet; wait two minutes, please!" It ends. Jeez.

Any Anneliese smells like bad tootsie rolls, which bothers me. I hope it goes away; it's been smelling bad in the drama area because of the play and none of us notice until we're somewhere else. *Sigh*

Started a samurai 7 fanfic...am catching up in NaNoWriMoness but I'm not going to worry about being not-too-severely behind until Thanksgiving. If I churn out at least 1000 words a day until then, I'll be happy.

It's so daunting I think I'm gonna die.

I love it!

Another 6-hour play practice tonight. Not as bad as last night, when my headache made me think my head would split open, but still pretty nasty.

But NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow! YAY!!!

And we should get our new modem tomorrow! Instead of 1.5 Gigs (as far as speed goes), now we have 3 gigs, which will make things uber-fast! At least, compared to before
