I refuse to use Zoom, but would also be up for a chat. ^^ What about Discord? I also need a hair cut but it's like 3 years overdue so...eh. As long as I've got enough of a warning to put decent clothes on. LOL

Thinking:
Everything is happening too much.
Does Discord do video calls?

if anything we could use Skype or something else?

There are times I could back up someone in an argument because I have in-depth information that would help out that person's stance.

.... except that guy is a jerk and said stupid things when he disagrees with me.
So he's on his own.

Wondering if I can get Shattered Time done by August (before friends get married).

Also trying to maintain optimism about things while everything seems to be on fire. ._.

Thats been me the past few weeks. I suffer from depression and apathy is a big part of it. Staying focused and making decisions isn't a strong suit.

Try something small and see it through.
I manage to do that sometimes... it's no problem when doing creative stuff at work... it's only problematic with personal works, whenever I try to start I feel like it's not going to work for some reason... I mean I know that no one will ever see the stuff I do (wich is ok) but I guess I tend to be my own worst enemy when it comes to this

I've been having a "writer's block" for three months already. Haven't written anything proper stuff for ages, and I couldn't figure out why.

Now I think I found the reason for my lack of inspiration. Yesterday I bursted for a couple of friends with my accumulated frustration towards an unbelievably toxic person. They're not a friend of mine, rather a bully who has been trying to harass me in some really imaginative ways for half a year, including leaving a fake suicide note, about which they warned some people in advance that 'it's not real, don't worry', and telling everyone it was me who made them end their life, despite the fact I hadn't talked to them for three months.
An hour went by, I was meditating and taking some time for myself. Thought that it's easier to cut off a person than a cancer, despite that they can be equally harmful.
Lucky to have some friends to stand with me and to keep an eye on this prick (thus taking care of my security) while I don't want to do it anymore. I mean, this person isn't their problem, they don't have anything to do with them, but still, they were ready to do this for me without hesitating. I don't know how to thank them.

Well, back to the writer's block. After making some arrangements and delegating my security checks to these friends of mine I wrote FOUR PAGES of a short story that has been circling in my mind for weeks. FOUR PAGES. FOUR. In less than an hour. Didn't know it was about that, but apparently it was.

I like the taste of freedom here. :woot:
I'm still blasting these keys!! Feeling so alive, can't wait the next writing club meeting <3
Also, apparently a writing break was needed, since I've now got a GREAT idea about how to make my fantasy manuscript work for real. It's been a real pain in my butt, I've written three drafts already and none of them works. It has some difficult themes in it, but now it seems I've got a resolution.

Also, I've had a lot of stress lately (not only relating to persons... this one is not capable of hurting me alone, nor to affect my inspiration alone. This stress is rather related to studies and work). Because of that I didn't feel like celebrating, but now that my studies are in a fine state, work projects are going well, and I've cut some stress factors off my life, I can finally let this out: I took part in a kind of big (in this country's scale) writing contest lately, and a while ago I got to hear that I'm among the finalists!! The top 25 out of nearly 200 :jawdrop:

I'll let you know when I'm informed about whether I got on the award list or not :) Exciting times! I might raise a glass tonight.

Oh, and I've found happiness in running. Had to mention this. Hitting the trail in the nearby forests just makes me feel so powerful, and I've lost some weight thanks to that!

I can barely remember what I dreamt last night/before waking this morning, but I can't escape the feeling it's helping me with ST. Like laying down a brick path to where I need to go next (which seems to involve deviating from my outline a bit, but for the better).

+Five more days! =D

Feeling really nostalgic seeing Command & Conquer as #1 Best Seller on Steam at the moment. :cool:

Both my boys look like Cousin It right now...I dare not cut their hair myself; last time I did that, they both looked ill.
Amy cut Jacks hair with the clippers and now he looks like one of the Mitchell brothers so I told her if she comes near me with it im cutting hers with a knife and fork.

Isn't it curious how I, a regular, heterosexual, white woman, have to consider carefully whether to include my name and contact information on an online tip for the police of a written public post in the internet? Isn't it weird that I had to choose to send it anonymously, despite that I wanted to give some further information on it if necessary, because I was afraid of getting bullets and threats in my mail on the grounds of pointing out a possible crime committed by a "wrong" person?

Not going to the details but this world is just insane. Insane, I tell you. It wasn't like this a couple of years ago.

Its finally happened... ive hit the 'dad' stage of gaming... After going around in circles for an hour on Jedi Fallen Order trying to get back to the ship a few weeks ago I did the unthinkable and let my step son have a go last night. It was the first time he had ever played it and he found his way back in 20mins while also finding some secrets I had missed... :dead:
