Summer is treating me relatively well, except for the fact that no one is hiring. I have no job and basically do nothing all day, which is good, in and of itself, but also gets boring. I have to motivate myself to write, every day. That is what I am going to work on. I want this to be the summer of words, both reading and writing. I think tomorrow I may delete my internets for at least half the day so I get other things done.
I have, however, been successfully motivated to work out. I've only lost 4 pounds, but hey--I lost 4 pounds! So that's exciting. I've taken to walking with my mom at least twice a week. Legit walking I mean, not moseying around or anything. I've been lax on going to the gym lately, but walking is so great, and it's outdoors and everything. Only problem is that sometimes I miss the feeling of working out until I'm exhausted in a good way. So I'll probably continue my gym classes.
Memorial Day Weekend was positively glorious. We had our annual softball game on Sunday, and actually had enough people to field two teams. Normally we just rotate from positions to batting because we don't get enough people. It was really fun though, except I sort of clobbered my Other Father (the guy who's basically a dad to me, even though he's not). I was coming from 2nd to 3rd and realized he was going to have the ball before I got there but also was in the base path. So haha, I'll run him over, it'll be funny. Except we both put our heads down and he ended up with a nasty black eye. I learned my face doesn't bruise very easily, though sometimes I forget we collided and rub my eye or something and it's basically OUCH. Twas quite grand though. After softball we had lazing around and cooking out at my house. I went swimming for the first time. Cold but glorious. Definitely a good thing after being so hot from softball.
Tomorrow I'm going back in to all the places I applied to tell them I'm still interested and they should probably hire me kthxbai. That won't be fun.
I've finished Battlestar. Third season is obviously the best. Also, did anyone else think of Santa Claus when Chief was talking about going north to some place cold and without people? It made me laugh.
I love Starbuck. I love finding new amazing female characters to adore. They always remind me that I have to create my own. I have bits and pieces of a character in me, but I don't know what her story is. I'm thinking of doing a one-sentence meme on my original fiction just to get to know the characters better and figure out what I want to say.
Posted my first BSG fic at bsg_kink
. You should check out both comms if you haven't yet. They are wonderful.
I wish I had a frakking paid account so I could have more userpics. I have to figure out which one(s) to drop so I can get at least one for Battlestar. I'm wavering between Starbuck and Roslin, but I think it'll have to be Starbuck. She's my girl.
Tell me about your day, flist.
