I’d Rather Be Sleeping

kittenI’m having one of those days at work where I’m struggling to keep my eyes open. Do you know how hard it is to stay awake when you’re sleepy and your job consists of reading boring crap all bloody day?? Very hard.

My back pain is pretty consistently present in one form or another, but lately it’s just been killing me at night, which may be why I’m so tired today.

Or maybe it was the restless sleep I had from catching up on The Walking Dead last night. Holy creep on a cracker that shit is tense. In order to deflate I then had to watch an episode of The Mindy Project in all its sparkly goodness.

I don’t want to be here. So, so tired.

Also, I want pie.

Today’s Word of the Day: Somnolent


The NaNoWriMo Madness

So I joined the NaNoWriMo Insanity this year because I’m such a ….joiner. Really. I am. Okay, I’m kidding. Anyone who knows me knows this to be the furthest thing from the truth. I’ve never been a joiner. I’ve never been a follower. But I’ve really never been a leader either. I’ve always just been…on my own?

There’s been the odd time here and there where I decided to do what I called the Social Experiment, where I forced myself to do tedious things like talk to people and such. I haven’t done that kind of thing in a while, and I guess I figured it was about time. Besides, I’ve been “working” on the same old book for five years now, it’s probably about time I started something knew, right?

Well, in true MaryPoppins style, after much procrastination, I joined late and was unprepared. From what I understand, most people know what they are going to write about in November before they actually start, and they have a nice outline and any research they need done. I had no idea what I wanted to write about when I joined a  day late; hence, why my word count on the official Nano site is exactly ONE.

Besides this embarrassing detail, I decided that tonight would be my first outing as a member of NaNoWriMo. I was of course nervous about mingling with the humans, but I’m glad I gave it a shot. It was a bunch of like-minded people (at least in this one corner of our lives) sitting mostly quietly together in a room, and writing. That’s it 🙂 Which was perfect actually. Little to no pressure of actually having to socialize, and yet I got out of the dungeon and was slightly more productive than usual. So that means a reluctant thumbs up from me, so far…

Go NaNo Go.
