And Pause

I'm going to be without Internet for about a week and a half. And I have no idea how I'm going to make it. But once that week and a half is over I will be back to my regular blogging schedule, at least once a week, and will be able to keep a closer tabs on all the people I stalk, uh I mean follow. Because honestly you guys always manage to make me smile even on the worst of days.

This is brief because it's late and I'm supposed to be in bed, though I'm praying for a snow day tomorrow. Here's the deal, I have not finished my novel but I haven't given up and am still chomping at the bit to get it finished, but like you all said these things take time. I'm almost done betaing Surviving Reject High and that is all I plan on doing tomorrow pounding out my last little comments on it before I loose Internet completely so I can get it back to Jade. I would have it finished but all the testing I've had to do in the past two months has left me unable to finish it, two or three hours of sleep can only get you so far before it starts affecting performance *sigh*.

I will also be basking in the sun by a pool in less than four days and will be indulging myself in my newly purchased novels, Percy Jackson and The Olympians (1), The Secret Year, Sharing Sam, Something Missing, and about fifteen others I can't wait to sink my teeth into. (Not literally because I can't bring myself to break the binding of a book let alone desecrate it with my teeth.) So yep. I'm a year older by the way, 17 and still feeling like I should be 8. I've picked a college I want to go to(it is a reach school but that's what determination is for right? And at least I've picked one), decided I'm taking four English classes next year including an independent study for creative writing (I'm calling it CW^2) because my school cut their regular program, and should hear back from that extra curricular creative writing program I applied to back in the fall during the first week of March. *Phew* That's a lot. But that's it for now, I'll be back here in about well two weeks. I'm going to miss you guys. *tear*.

So here, is yet another pause.

Wow, you're a put together 17 yr old and keep that in mind. It's tough to be this age, at this time, blah blah. All the stuff my old parents told me. LOL However, I did want to comment that you hang in there, we'll miss you too and best wishes!

Hi Hayley,
You will love Percy Jackson. Enjoy the pool!!!! And the sun!!!

I'm currently buried under 24 inches of fresh snow...on top of the already 20 inches we got last Saturday. Ugh.

p.s. Lisa and Laura's blog shared a really cool site that I think you may like - it's called Teen Fire. It has a writer's forum where you can post 1000 words and get it critiqued by fellow YA writers.

Kristi-My paretns are always telling me that stuff too, hehe. And thanks so much for commenting, I really am going to miss getting on everyday and reading everyone's blogs. *sigh* but I will be back before I know it. So again, thanks ^_^.

K.M.- Yes I read your blog about the site last night but had to go to bed (even though today was a snow day!) and I do really want to participate but I'm not sure if I'll be able to read or comment on anyone elses because I'm going to be away, and I would like to do that if I'm going to participate. Also I cheated and read the first few pages of Percy Jackson last night, even though I'd planned to wait to start it until tomorrow, now I'm bouncing in my boots I want to read it so bad. Thanks for the heads up though, and I think I am going to put my thousand in there, maybe I'll get to a wireless coffee shop and read a few others while I'm away. ^-^
