Doctor Who, Birthdays, NaNoWriMo, and Winter Break

So, I seem to blog right before my birthday most years so I guess this is that post as I will be busy on my actual birthday, with other things, so yeah – my 25th birthday is fast approaching – it’s on Saturday – and it’s kind of mind bloggling to me.

I am not really sure what to think. It doesn’t help, that as much as I love Doctor Who, the 50th anniversary is on the same day as my birthday, so I have a count down, whether I like it or not, and that is just kind of driving me crazy. It is nice to know that the wait for the 50th is about to be over but at the same time, am I really ready for my birthday?

Honestly – not really. But I have to be I guess.

Just so crazy, that I will be 25. O.o Where have the years gone?

Anyways, that being said, it’s also mind boggling to me that we’ve got about a month left of school – where has the semester gone? This year has also gone by way too fast. It’s just crazy!

Also the weather, yes this is me being random, has gone colder – well not really cold by Northern California standards, but for Southern California, yes this is cold. It’s in the mid 60’s at the moment. But not quite cold enough yet for jackets and scarves, unfortunately. I wish it was – I miss wearing scarves. But I’ll get a chance to wear scarves over Winter Break, as I’ll be back up in colder NorCal – I’ll need to remember to pack my scarves, or rather give them to my parents when they visit this weekend, so I have more room in my suit case for flying home.

I do have quite a bit of school work to do, but thankfully I’ve already hit my 50k goal for NaNoWriMo (hit it on the 10th) and my inspiration to finish has kinda gone, but hey, 50k… not finished, but I ‘won’. >.< 3rd year in a row!! 😀 Not as insane of a win as last year, but hey, I’m still proud of myself. ^_^

Anyways, going to get going, get a few more snuggles in with the dog, before heading off to the library to study a bit before class this evening.

Hope that you all are doing well!

Almost another year older…

So, I just realized that my birthday is in like 9 days (the 23rd), and is it sad that I am not really excited about it? Like I get that when you are younger it is a huge deal – celebrating, and the like. But I have noticed that as I get older, I really do not want to do anything for my birthday.

And I know some people who just don’t seem to understand this – I would MUCH rather have a low key birthday than go out and celebrate, only because celebrating to them means loud places with lots of people, both of which I do not get, and like. I do not handle loud places well and I get overwhelmed with too many people.

Plus I do not have a lot of spare cash, and so low-key fits that so much better! *shrug* Plus most of who want to see me, are in my school town, and I will be at home for the holiday – Thanksgiving – as my birthday falls the day after Thanksgiving…. sooo yeah… >.< And then NaNoWriMo is this month too – although having passed the 50k word goal in the dust ages ago – passed it a week ago – I guess it’s just writing and finishing my novel – I am aiming for 100k — at 70k at the moment, but we’ll see how that goes. 🙂

Anyways, yeah, I don’t honestly get the big hype that birthday parties are – mainly because the last few parties I have attempted to throw flopped badly, so I kinda have given up for the time being with throwing them. I am sick if people deciding that they can not come like the day before…. blah… anyways, so yeah — that may be another reason I am against celebrating – well not against celebrating, mainly just having parties. If that makes any sense?

Honestly, I wish that people would understand that when I say that I am not really one to want to have a party – that does not mean that I do not want to celebrate, but also when I say that I am busy, and really can not take too much time off to hang out to celebrate – understand that it doesn’t mean that I do not love you, I do — I just have a crazy life right now. >.<

Anyways, I think I need to either go and focus on getting some of my homework done – or writing letters – I have letters to write for Soldiers’ Angels. Or just spacing our or Noveling. We’ll see how this goes.

Although Torchwood sounds more interesting at the moment *shakes fist* BARROWMAN! ❤

Oh, also, I want to do 14 things I am thankful for – given that it is the 14th:

I AM THANKFUL FOR (in no particular order):

1) My parents – they are so supportive of me, and willing to help me out with whatever I chose to do with my life. ❤

2) The opportunity to get an education.

3) All of the colours that are on campus right now – beautiful

4) My NaNo Buddies – who make writing fun

5) My friends – You all are amazing, never forget that

6) Those who I know who are accepting of everyone – you all make it easier for me to just be myself.

7) Teachers who make learning fun! ❤

8) My imagination – without it I think the world would be a boring place

9) Traveling – even though I have not done much of this, I love it

10) My brother – keep following your dreams, I am so proud of you!

11) ASL – and how I have found where I am meant to go with my life

12) Rainbow Alliance – And accepting me in, even though I am a strange one, who sometimes doesn’t feel like being super social.

13) Giggles and laughter – because without the world would be boring without these

14) Music – because that to helps keep the world a happy place, without music, life would be dull

So, there y’all go! ❤

Hope that you all are doing well!

The Doctor Made an Appearance in my Novel

So first off, I am at 60k with my novel and still going strong. Totally shocking me how fast this is going for me. Hannah and David – my characters – are very chatty, that’s for sure!

Just before I hit 50k, I was struggling and so I decided to throw my characters for a loop and throw the 10th Doctor into it. Sure he was just in a dream, but it made me laugh, that’s for sure. Here’s a little snippet of that part that totally made me bust up laughing:

“Who are you?”
“I told you… I am The Doctor.”
“Doctor Who?”
“Yes, precisely. That is who I am.”
“No, I asked you, who are you?”
“I am called The Doctor.”
She just looked at him like he was crazy, which she supposed that he was. But nothing new there. That was the fun of this… he loved the insanity that this caused, but he really did want to help. Before she could respond, he pressed another button before grabbing his coat and put it on as he ran to the door.
“Ok, off we go! we are here!”
“Wait, where is here

Just between Hannah (my main female character) and 10. Just totally made me laugh.

Also my main male character was explaining children’s laughter and this is how he explained it. Or at least it was a tiny bit of his explanation.

And so funny and cute and just contagious, just like yawning, but cuter.

Just the little things that come out of NaNo. Definitely! And then earlier I was on Facebook chatting with some people on there and someone was mentioning Firewood and my fingers – in typing a response – typed Fire Food instead of Firewood. XD

And oh, yay for firewood (and apparently my fingers decided that first go was firefood – although firewood is firefood, so it works right? :P)<3

But I caught myself in time and managed to correct it before hitting enter to send it. xD Oh, the NaNoisms. ROFL!

Anyways, happy noveling to those of you doing NaNo this month. And if you aren’t then hope that you are having a great Fall (STAY WARM!) or Spring, depending on where you are!

I’m the WriMo Robot – who is insane!

So, I just have to brag and gloat, and I am not getting around to this only due to my hands totally hating me yesterday – although I got over it, and signed through the issues last night (ran into a friend of a friend who knows ASL and we kiiiiiinda went to town – what a blast that was – only signing back and forth. Totally amazing).

Anyways, I am doing NaNoWriMo this year, and I am feeling completely empowered at the moment as I managed to already hit 50,000 words in *drum rooooooll* 7 days! My novel is no where near finished so I am definitely not stopping there, but I am hoping to get to 75k or something like that. We’ll see where these characters go! ❤ But I am feeling great at the moment, despite keeping myself back from writing for two straight days – no writing today… not allowed. HAHA! ❤

Just wanted to share that achievement with you all!

And omg, before I leave, I have to share something else, and I do have a picture that I will include as well. SO this past week – well Tuesday the 6th through Thursday the 8th was Pride Days on my school campus and one of our presenters that we had was Ann Bannon – the Queen of Lesbian Pulp Fiction from the 50’s – and she came to give a presentation and I managed to get a picture with her!!! Freaking amazing!

All around, it was a great week – an insane week – filled with lots of awesome memories and accomplishments.
Good luck to all of you peoples doing NaNo this month! You all can do it! I have faith in you! ❤
It is most definitely possible to do around school, while being sick… it’s just harder, but not impossible!

Happy Writing! ❤

His name is ‘The Doctor’ not Doctor Who!

 

So, I found this image the other day on Facebook, and it totally made me just bust up laughing, as this is totally how I feel whenever anyone says “Omg! So that’s Doctor Who!” when referring to the character, not the show itself. Makes me want to do this:


I actually typically do facepalm, and then go “The Doctor”. Can’t stop myself from correcting people. What people who aren’t Whovians don’t realize… yes, his name is The Doctor because when he tells him that his name is The Doctor… their immediate response to that is “Doctor Who?” Hence the name of the show! XD

Anyways, now that I’ve said that I want to apologize for being kinda MIA lately. I’ve been busy with classes and school — mainly just life in general, plus I’ve been feeling kinda not creative and been struggling to make myself write. I’ve tried to write a blog post a few times over the past few months, but I just couldn’t write something worth sharing. [XD]
Well, my life has been pretty good. I did apply to CSUN and CSUS this past monday… just have to wait till March of Next year to see if I got into them or not. ^.^;; Wish me luck and cross your fingers… I’m honestly hoping for CSUN. I am planning on doing NaNoWriMo next month… CAN’T WAIT!! 😀

And I also registered to be a letter writer on the Letter Writing Team (LWT) over at Soldiers’ Angels (And because I’m still slowly figuring this site out… need to mess around on it more… but if you’re interested in finding out more about Soldiers’ Angels… go to http://www.soldiersangels.org).

I’m excited about that – I get my first few names this coming Monday – hopefully my envelopes and stamps I ordered come before then. =] They better!!!

Anyways, nothing much new other than fighting a weird respiratory sickness of some sort (probably a cold that has decided to bother me). And classes. *lol* Story of my life… school school and more school. xD

Hope that you all are doing well – and I’ll do my best to post another post soon. =]
