Because it haunts me

It's all about gathering your courage to take that first step

Month: November, 2013

Last day of November

Can you believe it? I mean where did the month go to? Today was a good day. I read Reggie’s story. It was incredibly rough but yet I still loved the premise. I mean I sat at my desk and 300 pages of the manuscript. Almost in one sitting. I wrote on a character chat. […]

Sigh. Apple sucks

It’s getting to that time when I know I need to update my cell phone. Right now I’m on the iPhone 4S which has been giving me grief since 5 came out. So now I’m mulling over what to get and the easiest way to bring all my music with me. Man, do I miss […]

Pleasant weekend so far. “Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.-”-Helen […]

On my travels today

I saw this pinned to a bulletin board:

Do you see how late it is again?

Ugh. I am so glad this week is done. For work. I know there’s like a million dust bunnies to destroy in my house ( perhaps not quite that many). But work work is done for the week. Started my off time at a middle school orchestra concert tonight. You know, it’s really great to […]
