I found this

Really powerful photos. I cried. Check it out.
I can't get the photo to load onto this... but it's Flower Power because it's more about hope, then terror.

My morning.

It's been an eventful morning so far (and yes, I realize it's only 8:00 am).

(Note: I haven't been to sleep yet...)

I got a text at about 5 a.m. from my friend saying her mom was in the hospital, with what they thought was cancer. So, I threw on some sweatpants and drove over there. This friend was the first one I had when I moved to this town. Her mom was like my second mom for quite awhile. I sat with her until 7:30 a.m. and then her parents came home. They still couldn't figure out what was wrong with her. I almost cried. Mary, my friend, just wanted to go back to sleep so I headed back home.

The drive home, reminded how much I hate living in Minnesota during the winter. I barely went over 40 mph the whole way there and back. And it's like a half hour drive. I almost had a panic attack during the entire drive. It was awful. I would miss the snow and even the cold, but driving in the winter makes me wish I lived in a place like Cali, where it was hot all the time and I didn't have to worry about slippery roads. Or maybe NYC, where I could still enjoy the snow, but could just take taxis everywhere and not have to drive.

For those of you who have never driven in Minnesota in the middle of the winter, I envy you.

I'm really sick of...

People making fun of Twilight.
Movie and books.
Don't be hating cause Edward is perfect

I know the book isn't the best piece of literature ever to be written, but it's a book for teens. It's not supposed to be hard to read. And I enjoyed it soooo much.

That does not make me some screaming twelve year old girl like people accuse me of being. I'm still a mostly level headed adult who reads more serious books, like Pride and Prejudice. It makes me someone who can enjoy all types of books.

Back the hell off.

Well. I didn't reach the goal for NaNo. I kinda sorta lost all drive to do anything in the middle of the month (that's something that happens every year round this time). I was lucky if I got out of bed and showered, much less wrote 1,600+ words.

Don't worry though. I'm not too discouraged though. I'm still proud of the 18,000+ words I did manage to crank out. And I'm going to finish the rest of the story as soon as I can. At least the rough draft part. I'm excited to see how it turns out.

Next year NaNo,
You're mine.
