I...I've gone and done it...

I got myself a paid account *hangs head in shame*

Now I'm just playing around with settings and junk, hoping that I don't screw everything up.

Hehe 15 userpics. I could have got more, but didn't want to spend the extra 10 dollars...yet.

I think maybe one day, when I've got DSL, I shall look into actually creating my own style. I was looking at it, and I love programming, and so it may be something that I can get into. Maybe. Who knows with the way my fickle brain works.

Okay, off to do some more tweaking!

M.A.

Who probably shouldn't have spent the money...oh well!

Yet another uneventful week...

Well, unless you count the fact that I've just purchased a paid account. Which I don't because, well, it's really not that exciting. I'm happy with my layout--for now. Probably in five minutes I won't be and will be changing it again, but...oh well :)

Does anyone notice that I use 'well' way too much? Because I do. I try very hard not to, but a lot of the time my writing skills just aren't up to snuff.

Speaking of writing, I've finally got around to checking my email for my Weir/McKay ficathon challenge and will, sometime today, see if I can't get something done on it. It's something that I write anyway, so it shouldn't be too hard.

I've also been watching Labyrinth, over and over and over again :D. I love that movie! Been thinking about writing a fanfic for it, but there's too many plot bunnies, and the one I really want to write will have too many logistics to work out so I probably won't even attempt it.

As for working, I don't even want to talk about it. I know there are better jobs out there, that would hire me, I just can't get to them. Mostly because they're half-way across the country from me and don't pay for relocation. *sigh* Still, if I purchase stock, in a year or so, I'll have enough to pay for my own relocation. Unless I've already found something else by then.

Now, I'm going to go see if I can't start writing my ficathon piece...

M.A.

Oh dear..

I had to go shopping today, so I wasn't able to do any writing. But that's not the part that sucks (after all, I am procrastinating), no, the part that sucks is that we just had to go today to get all of our Christmas (or at least most of it done) and what happened? We didn't buy anything. At all.

The stores were extremely crowded (which I told my grandmother and mother would happen considering it's a Saturday) and they were sold out of the things they wanted to get. I could have got something, and saw several things that I wanted to get my adorable little Gavyn, but no, I wasn't allowed to.

It's my money. And we spent all day out (part of which we sat at Grandma's apartment, chatting about how the world today is a horrible evil mess of things) for nothing. Nothing. We came back empty handed.

Oh well, my car should be fixed soon, meaning I can drive myself instead of depending on everyone else and oweing tons of gas money.

I'm tempted to go back to the NaNo forums to attempt to join in some conversations, but I'm still a bit shy. It takes me forever to get involved with a group, and even when I do, I still mostly lurk.

Which is why I don't comment on my friends' lj's, not because I don't want to, but because I generally can't think of anything worth saying.

Anyway, I'm going to see if I can run everyone off so that I can write tonight.

M.A.
