Changed my layout, about to change my icons.

I've noticed something, in my travels between LJ and Dreamwidth. Dreamwidth is really empty. Sure, I have some friends over here, but hardly anyone posts. I check LJ multiple times a day, and there's always something new to read. I check DW once a day, and I'm lucky if there's five or six new posts to read.

Anyway, today Bryan and I are moving the daybed over here to Tara's. I hope it fits in the hole we made for it. Worst comes to worst, we'll just shuffle stuff around.

I gotta clean my room. It's a wreck. I can do that later, most likely, once the daybed is in.

Day Four

Well, today went better than expected.

I read through four volumes of Trigun Maximum (and was really sad to find out that it doesn't end at Volume 10, which is the last volume I have, which means I have to buy more when I get money), and packed up some stuff as well. I also moved some stuff around over at Tara's, and emptied some buckets in the process (and made a mess of my bed over there as well - since I don't have a closet or dresser or anything yet over there, my bed is a closet until I move in). Tara bought some pretty purple sheets to put on my bed, which makes me feel special. I like them.

Did some writing- a little over the daily 1,667 I'm supposed to do, but not too much. I'm still ahead of where I should be, thank goodness, and if I really get motivated, I could break 10,000 words tonight. It's a good feeling. I used Write or Die tonight, and it helped a bit- I cranked out all the words I needed in 32 minutes! Including this gem of a sentence, in reference to the cleanliness of dorm showers: "Yeah, the shower stall sparkled like a vampire from a Stephenie Meyers book," Sarah said.

Best. Sentence. EVAR.

9660 / 50000 words. 19% done!

I'm going to omit a lot of this to spare any of the NaBloWriMo readers out there, but to make a long story short, Bryan's bad attitude has ended up with him not being able to move in to Tara and Josh's house. I'm more than welcome over there, but his attitude towards them, and how he treats me, has made Josh decide that he just doesn't want to put up with Bryan.

Which is understandable.

Also, I've only cranked out 600 words for my novel today (I was going to shoot for another 3,000, and who knows, I could make it, but only with coffee and chocolate and late night writing), I slept through the morning, I lumped around all day on the couch, and now I'm freezing and starving.

Oh lord, how I LOVE being an adult.

I'm really getting excited about NaNo. This is the first year I've done any sort of preparation besides "oh hey, I have a title, a vague idea, and a handful of characters", and I think I'm going to do really well this year. I started planning in September, that's how early I got started on my novel this year. I'm glad I've got some friends on Dreamwidth who are doing NaNo as well, and hopefully I won't bore the other people who read my entries with rambling about my novel.

One of the things I am not excited about, however, is the urinary tract infection I have. Not fun. At least the antibiotics aren't killing my stomach - one small thing in my favor, I guess.

I'm slowly getting stuffed moved over to Tara's. I would have loaded her car up and made a trip over today, if I didn't have to go over to Student Health to get this "omg I have to pee all the time" taken care of. Ah well, there's always tomorrow. I'm going to see if I can explore her basement and see how gross it is down there, if it's not too bad I might put some of our plastic buckets of stuff down there so Bryan and I can have a relatively clutter-free attic and bedroom. Although... hahah, clutter free bedroom? Like that'll happen- the bed takes up practically the entire room. XD

My paid account runs out soon, and I can't afford to pay for more paid time right now. Maybe when I get paid next week, I dunno, but it might be a while before I can afford a paid account since we're so broke. Ah well. I wonder what 6 icons I'll be stuck with! That's always a fun game to play. I can't believe I've uploaded so many icons- I never did this when I had a paid account on LJ.

I gotta get into the swing of blogging every day, for NaBloWriMo.

I have a plot. I have a title. I have a rough outline that covers a year of time in the stories. I have names for all my characters: Maia, Julius, Sarah, John, Frank, Rob, Dee, and Arthur. I have detailed character profiles for my main characters, and have fleshed out the basics for my lesser characters. I'm ready for this.

... OH NOES. I think the NaNo website went down. Dammit! I wasn't done doing my morning forum perusal yet!

Ah well. Later today Bryan and I are going to take care of some stuff at Tara's, maybe move some stuff up to the attic and clean out our bedroom (if the cat boxes have been moved, anyway), and then Tara and I are going to go to Jo-Ann Fabrics and get some cross-stitchy stuff. :D

Yeah, last night sucked, but today's been pretty darn good. I went downtown to mail some stuff, deposit some money, and went to campus. The sun was out, and it wasn't too hot, and the trees are green and pretty. Talked to Bryan a few times today, too. I also got to hang out with Tara and play with her lovely puppies. I'm gonna try my hand at making little loli clothes for Hitomi later. :D

My dad is an idiot and is using the fact that Bryan's dad's van is broken and I may or may not have to be around to give the keys to the van to whoever tows it as a reason not to come up to visit tomorrow. I fucking knew this would happen. This is the 6th time in the past year that he's said he'd come up and then tell me he's not coming the day before he's supposed to be up here. I've stopped expecting much. I see Bryan's dad more often than I see my own. Hell, I think the last time I saw my dad was before I was even dating Bryan.

Mmm, I has yummy noodles to nom on for dinner. :D

Today was a nice day. I got some housework done, and then I spent the afternoon with Tara and Josh. We went to Massena, and Tara and I looked at some clothes, and then Bryan popped over to the mall when he got done teaching and I went home with him. Bry got a new digital camera for cheap - $69 for one that's comparable to the one he got me for Christmas for $99. His old one eats batteries like there's no tomorrow. Why do old electronics do that, anyway? Mom's got a digital camera that can only take three or four pictures before it dies. Weird.

Anyway, I also got some work done on my annotated bibliography project for kiddy lit. (Basically, we have to come up with some activities for 25 books of our choice.) I decided to do it as a Powerpoint presentation, where you click the image of the book you want, and it takes you to a slide with all the activities on it. Ahh, brings me back to the days of HyperCard, and making presentations with that.

Tomorrow I have my math 'final', where I go hand in my paper and see how I did on the last test. I'm also going to turn in my annotated bibliography (if I finish it, we'll see how that goes - I may end up spending the day in the lit center) as well.
