Long Time Gone!

It has been quite a while since I have gotten myself to write here on my blog. I have been doing a whole lot of writing and really just avoiding. It’s funny when you start out and you are so dedicated and then life happens. I have still been writing, though not for my book or here, but I have been writing for my examiner site. I enjoy going to the shows and getting to see all these things that I have wanted to see for so long, but then I find that work and this writing and life in general has just kept me so busy. I read an article the other day about “fit people” and that they don’t make excuses, which is why they are fit and often times I feel that applies to most things.

Creativity is dead?!

So what is it you are saying or what is it that you want to say? It is like a post I did a while back asking “what is it you really want?” In order to succeed, you first must decide what is it that you really want before you can pursue it with all you have inside of you. If you fail to see what it is you want, then you fail to get it. That is a pretty simple concept right? It is the same if you are not sure what it is you want to say.

Obsessed with Fun

It might not be the post you were quite expecting from the title, but there is a band called Fun, that I have become increasingly obsessed with. I finally was given, by my boyfriend, the “Some Nights” CD and I have been playing it non-stop ever since!! I can’t quite pin point the exact reason that I love them, but they sound like a mix of punk, rock and pop, their lyrics are intriguing and they do just as their name says, they have fun!

Happy Tolkien Reading Day!

How exciting!!! Love me so Tolkien!!!

Interesting Literature

Today is Tolkien Reading Day, an annual event launched in 2003 by the Tolkien Society. (The date of 25 March was chosen in honour of the fall of Sauron in the Third Age, year 3019, in Tolkien’s fiction.) The reading day promotes the use of Tolkien’s writing in schools and library groups, and is celebrated in numerous countries. To mark the occasion, we’ve put together ten of our favourite quotations from John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. The first quotation, about Beowulf, is especially timely because of the recent announcement that Tolkien’s translation of that epic poem is finally going to be published!

On Beowulf and myth: ‘The significance of a myth is not easily to be pinned on paper by analytical reasoning. It is at its best when it is presented by a poet who feels rather than makes explicit what his theme portends; who presents it incarnate in the world of history and geography, as our poet has done. Its defender…

What Is It You Really Want???

Lately things haven’t been so bad. I have missed my half way point deadline for my novel and the days just keep on moving by. I feel like I should be doing things, but just keeping up with my daily life and responsibilities is taking all my time. It sometimes feels like after you get done doing all that you need, you don’t even have time to do what you want. I guess in all honesty though I have felt a bit uninspired lately. I am not sure why, but I guess it’s just apathy, if that is the right word.

Being Happy and Sharing Love

Loving someone is the greatest thing that you can do. It’s amazing how much we hold back in and from ourselves to either keep from doing this or to not do it at all. There are those who don’t seem to understand love, for whatever reason, but why is it so hard to be happy and support someone? It’s funny how much people think they know about you and what is best for your life, but no ones life is the same. We all make decisions and choices that are our own and no one else can or should make those for us.

Being “Social”

Are you a social person? Today this is a very interesting question, the first thing that people think when anyone asks this, they are talking about your internet foot print, so to speak. It’s ironic that a computer screen and these kind of things could be considered our “social” lives, when these things aren’t social at all. Nowadays we have seemed to forget the interactions that come with being social and we have abandoned them for computer screens and keyboards. Is it wrong? Is the amount of friends or followers you have really have an effect on your life?

Getting Our Chance

There are people that seem to have it all figured out. They have a plan and they execute it. I wrote a post about getting your dreams someone mentioned luck. There are times that I think about it and I think luck isn’t what matters, it’s about actions right? When you stop and think about, it has to be luck, at least partly. After all the saying is, “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know”. Even that lends to the fact that you don’t have to have the best skills, but you just have to know the right people who can use your skills. Things like this are just frustrating and part of why most of the time we feel like life just isn’t fair.
