A girl and her cat take on the world with nothing more than a cup of tea and a good book and enough dreams to fill the universe.
As my three o’ clock bedtime rapidly approaches, I find myself not working on my story like I had promised myself but in a bit of a panic over all the different social web media one of my classes this semester will require. I thought I would get a jump start since I had an hour, though I can feel my eyelids growing heavier by the minute.
How I feel the first day of class and some of the days after that.
One of my New Year’s resolutions was to write at least five times a week on a personal project. I’m not sure this really counts, but at least I’m writing which is better than last year. I am currently working on a steampunk novel that seems to have taken on Tolstoy-like dimensions that are rather daunting to say the least. Even as I’m writing now, I’m not sure I agree with Tolstoy and steampunk being in the same sentence, but I’ve done it twice now and will just have to get over it.
My cat, Joplin, has abandoned me for a box and a catnip mouse. He tends to be anti-cuddle, but he definitely knows what he wants and when he wants it. I was cleaning my kitchen earlier and he had decided that every pile of dirt I collected was an invitation to play and as a result I ended up sweeping at least three times.
Over my holiday break, I have also become incredibly obsessed with this T.V. show “Once Upon a Time.” All of the characters annoy me except for Rumplestiltskin and Belle. They are the only reason I watched all ofseason one and all of the episodes of season two in less than a week. Not even Doctor Who inspired that kind of passionate consumption of television. Being so involved with the beauty and the beast storyline, I am beginning to worry if I am not a little attracted to Stockholm’s Syndrome. Sometimes I find myself wishing to be kidnapped on my way to do my laundry, but I always dismiss this as silly because I would probably be way too terrified and angry at my predicament to possibly fall in love. Fairy tales…
That’s all for now folks.
Push your mind, get inspired & be on top of the world.
