[Update] C'est Moi

Hi all! I'm finally able to blog again. I can almost hear your groans of displeasure. *relishing in it* I've had to rely on my Surface Tablet since my laptop started acting up in May. I still haven't gotten the stupid thing fixed, mainly because I don't want to shell out a bunch of money for it (that's a lie, my parents would have to pay) and I'm loath to talk to the idiots at Best Buy (laziness factors in as well), so my boyfriend built me a desktop. I love that he's graduated and has a job now. He spoils me so. :D

Writerly Updates:

I got nothing. Seriously, this summer has been a waste. All I do is sleep and swim. Anyway, I'm revising book one, wrapping up book two, outlining book three, and I've written, so far, eleven chapters of a YA fantasy standalone. I swear, if I don't finish the first draft of it by the end of August, I'm going to commit seppuku. No lie.

So playing Jeopardy has shown me that I am horribly not well-read. When it comes to classic literature, that is. I haven't even read Huckleberry Finn for pity's sake. So I've decided to go through Book Riot's list. Not all of them are classics, of course, but they're pretty popular books that I should still read. I'm a little leery, since 50 Shades of Grey is on the list. I will read everything on it, from top to bottom, except The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson because eff that noise. Poetry can go suck it.

Well this concludes my post. I'll hopefully be getting back into my routine of posting Tuesdays and Thursdays. I've noticed my most popular posts tend to be about anime and k-pop, so my next one'll probably be something along those lines. ^.^

How's life?
