Moved In, Settling In, Let the Nightmare Begin!

Our final shipment of household goods arrived on Tuesday, which means instead of an empty house we now have a house full of boxes, which means one step away from disaster as those boxes get cut open and the contents spread throughout the house in "temporary" locations until it is firmly decided where those specific items will spend the next few years (that is if anyone actually ever decides to put things in their final "resting" places). As for my room, like every other move, I'm the first to have everything packed in boxes, and the first to have them all unpacked. The question has been raised by quite a few family members now how there is even room in my bedroom for me to sleep because i have so many things. All I can say is that it fit in my last bedroom... haha... Now I've got to go out and buy storage bins to put away the 75% of my clothes and boots which all just so happen to be things that you'd overheat in standing out in the 100 degree weather o…

A Trip to My Hometown

Wow, have I never thought that returning to the place where I spent six very important years of my life would be so eye-opening and wonderful! Although my seven day visit hasn't gone exactly as the visit did in my short story I wrote back at the start of the year for writing class, it has been a wonderful experience and so nostalgic. I've gone kyaking out on the reservoir where my family and friends used to go jet skiing, camping up in Bear Gulch like good old times only to be chased back down the mountain by a thunder storm, sit through a rodeo in which you watch some of the most gutsy people take on danger and fears with courage and skill, walk through the ghost town Virginia City where we used to dress up in colonial clothes and raid the candy shop, and so much more that has brought so much joy and excitement to my life this past week!

As a writer, this trip has also taught me something. It has shown me first-hand how lives can change when you are gone, and how your life ca…

Moving In!

Finally after a long loonnnggg month of tedious work on renovating our new house,  I finally got to spend my first night in it (even if it was sleeping on an air mattress). It has been a very stressful month working on the house and getting set up for school. As of July, I am officially enrolled as a student in one of the community colleges here which I will attend for a year or two before transferring to university. It may not be everyone's first choice when thinking about after high school (many of my friends want to get straight into Ivy League schools), but with all of my own personal factors involved, it is my best decision for the moment, and I'm quite happy about it too!

This past week I have begun researching Literary Agents which is my next step with my stories once they are finished. The King's Daughter rewrite is about halfway done now, but with the a little more time on my hands after finishing the house, I hope within the next month that "halfway" wi…
