Happy Canada Day!

Standard

A few minutes ago I stood outside, at the end of my street’s block, beside my mum and watched the fireworks devour the darkness.

While watching the fireworks I noticed a plane circling around and a twinge of jealousy ran through me. I would have loved to been a fly on that plane as it circled the fireworks shooting through the sky, witnessing the precious seconds of flame in a full 3D explosion.

Happy Canada Day to all of you whether you are Canadian, or not, at home or abroad.

Shine bright, dear fireworks. (Taken outside with my cell phone)

Just the relief, a quickie prompt

Standard

Last night I went through the writing prompt tag on tumblr just to see what I would find. There were a bunch of awesome prompts but one list stood out to me: Bookstore AU (apollofastingdionysusdrunk.tumblr.com)
I decided to work on the prompt that made me laugh the hardest (whether it’s because I pictured writing one of the cheesiest scenes, which is honestly so much fun, or not I have it written down at the top of my blank page.
“Holy shit this assistant is hot – yes, I’m looking for a science fiction, a Gothic horror, a spy mystery, a modern dystopian, historical fiction, and – and…”
Not sure where this will lead. I already have some ideas swirling in my mind.
This won’t be the first prompt I have decided to tackle in the last few weeks. Sometimes right now all it honestly feels like I only have enough energy to work on a short blurb.
But for me it’s a relief.
My brain doesn’t feel overwhelmed and for a short time I can focus on melding myself with paper. Even if I fall asleep while working.
If you want to take a crack at it, and don’t mind sharing, feel free to either comment or post it on your own blog (but please let me know, I would love to read it)!

Radios and Ghosts

Standard

I just finished watching a CREEPSHOW dvd and found my brain chugging as I scampered up the stairs to my room to change into my pyjamas.
It feels so good to have some fresh inspiration again.

Tiggy just chilling on my shoulder.

It doesn’t feel good having Tiggy the cat walk across my chest and settle his furry bum on my paper though. His enthusiastic purrs do make up for the uncomfortable moments when he settles himself, realistically short few seconds.
But now I am going to move to my room so I can finish writing in peace and no furball trying to chew up my paper.
I mean honestly, how much trouble can ghosts and a radio station really get into?

Okay so I get that the title of this post is, well, trending on twitter and whatever other social media outlets. It ain’t going to stop me from using it though!!
I just wanted to drop a line to say how much I want to thank you all for reading my munchkin words over the time I have been running this blog; how I want to thank you for coming back even when I have disappeared for months and for sticking by me. I love each and everyone of you.
As many of you know I am, well now have been, in school to be a library technician. What you don’t know is that I have been on academic probation for the last semester and have failed to comply.
These are words I never wanted to say or type.
I feel sick to my stomach, not just because I have finally admitted that I am going to be seen as a failure for x amount of time, but because I have finally learned something about myself that explains I think why I am such a dipshit in school.
For now I leave you with this. I hope you will support me and comfort me as I tell the rest of my family.
I love you.

I know I haven’t been the most active on posting…but I just wanted to post this.

Today is my last day of being 20.

In less than 15 minutes I will be 21 (even though I was not officially dumped into this world till around 5.30am back in 1993).

You know, I have really learned, and maybe grown up, a lot in the last year; which will probably shocking to some people since they will vocally tell me I have not.

The 20 year old munchkin is out! Bring on 21! Hope to see you sticking around.
