Well, '09 has certainly been the year of the short, random post, often thought up while half asleep. It has also been the year of the long hiatuses followed by spastic times of constant posts, several times a day. Hmm, it's good to know that I've evolved.
Anyways, today is, so far, exciting! I spent the night at my mom's house for the first time ever (considering even though it's titled my mom's house no one really lives there full time as of yet), and visited the house I'm currently house-sitting and hung out with their two cats for a while.
What's so exciting about that, you may ask? Well, nothing, actually. To add insult to injury, my Winter Break is quickly coming to a close and I still have a lot of homework to finish. Lovely. Oh, and did I mention that I'm feeling quite sick right now?
Wow, I really, really suck at this! Okay, without further ado, the exciting news:
I just sent off my entry to the Young Writers Contest courtesy of PenWriters. Now it's floating somewhere in a Penticton in-box, waiting to be judged and hopefully loved. I'm very anxious, but also extremely excited (can you tell?) and happy considering I've actually pulled together and finished something before the deadline! I'm coasting on the same kind of accomplishment-high as I was when I finally completed my CBC Literary Awards entry. Winning would be spectacularly amazing, but really just entering has me very happy :)
On top of all of that, I have oodles of newly downloaded music on my iTunes! It's all happy and lovely and folk-y pop, the new direction I'm gravitating towards... Ah, third generation hippies.
Love and excitement,
