Type...type type...scribble scribble...

Life has been crazy lately. But I'm okay with that.
And I've been all inspired today. So I write when I'm not cleaning. And I blast Blue October's new cd.
And thus, an idea I've been turning about in my head is taking form. Whenever my main character reveals a bit more info to me, I listen to him eagerly, and scribble down notes. Writing will be delightful tonight.
I saw the new Star Trek -- quite amazing, I must say. And I finished watching the first season of Dragonball Z last night; I've already bought the second season, but have yet to begin watching it. I may end up waiting until school's out. I have a lot to do to get ready for the graduation party.
Plus, I really need to finish reading both Angels and Demons (for contemp. novels) and Graceling (which I need to return to the library). I'll be sad to finish Graceling -- it's an amazing book. I love Katsa -- she's my hero. But I shall post a review for it on my review blog, which will be the kick off to my magnificent review-filled summer. Until something happens with my writing, that is. If I gets all agented and need to do lots of writing, I will more than likely sacrifice reviewing for writing.
Speaking of writing (when am I NOT? Honestly...) -- it has been a magnificent head-clearer lately. I am quite pleased to have the opportunity to come home and get the things done that need to be done, so I have plenty of time to write of an evening if I please. Or read. Or watch anime. Or whatever. And my blood pressure isn't sky rocketing anymore. It's like...amazingly amazing to be feeling this free. Like my heart isn't made of steel anymore -- it's nowhere near as heavy as before.
Well, back to cleaning. We have a new stove and fridge coming in tonight!

Of glass, comics, and good moods.

So, after basically FORCING myself to be happy on this already bleak and miserable day -- I'm feeling loads better. It's possibly just a temperary fix, but I try to hope for more.
So, I met this woman today that is pretty fantastic and actually helped influence my mood. She's an artist of sorts -- she does these jewelry sculptures and glass hangings and stained glass things... I mean, it's gorgeous work! We talked and she showed me some of her stuff, and I think I may even go learn how to do some of this stuff from her. She was fabulous, and quite the positive influence on my spirit.
Today was also FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!!! I love comics, so this day is like Heaven for me. Taylor usually goes with me, but he was in Jeff City for a photo shoot. So, it was just me today. I got a Batman comic half off and a TON of free comics. This, too, added to my better mood.
And, since it IS Free Comic Book Day -- I'm going to go see X-Men Origins: Wolverine tonight. I am SO excited! It has Gambit, and Deadpool, and Wolverine....*geeky squeal* I'm stoked.
Well, off to clean before the movie.
