It will probably be some time before I update much other than my journal. With the Christmas season on its way, I'm not going to have a whole lotta time. Future plans for this site as a whole include a 'Shadows of the Past' section in my journal so I can jot down little things I remember about when I was younger, my 'Short Stories' page, a 'Works In Progress' page, a 'Formal Writing' page, the songs I wrote/am writting, some real-life pictures, and a completed Card Index. I'd also like to get more of my bmp and gif files on here, but I know they take up a lot more space than text pages.
I'm a little disappointed that John, the card guy, hasn't gotten in touch with me again. It figures, I'm about to get the best deal ever on Star Wars game cards, and my seller comes up missing. pfft.
Parental update: they played Password together before I got home, and last I saw them, they were in the same bed together. They've also taken notice of the horrible condition of the basement. Good thing for me?...
Two months left, today. Well, today as I write this, not the day I'm writing about. I'm so scared about this, it's unbelievable. It will more than likely be the hardest thing I ever do. And I'm not so sure I want to make a career out of it. I said I did, and there are some things that I really want to do, but this is what I like. Taking a keyboard or a pencil or what have you and turning it in to something more. Maybe I can get a job as a journalist, or a web designer or something in the Corps. Even then, how am I going to leave now? I think the reason I actually went through with it in the first place was because, at the time, my parents kept harrasing me about not doing anything here at home. What I do at home only counts for people who come to my home, things like this could get me a spot in history. You never hear things like 'Oh, and Sir Isaac Newton had the most lovely home!' But that's unrelated to the subject at hand.
Why did I do it? Yeah, one reason was to get away from home. But another reason that was pretty obvious to me at the time kind of got lost in the last few months, but I still remember it. What is there for me here? Seriously, unless Lam Productions really takes off and starts an honest film producing business, all I've got is factory work, retail, or fast food. No, I couldn't stand for that. I'm doing it because there's nothing else for me to do.
I went to Amy's again tonight. Fought over the TV control for a while, then I fixed dinner, we played a board game, and went to watch The OC. It's the first episode I watched, so I have no idea what's going on, but it looked like it might be good. I'm going to miss her. But I'll be back. I just hope she's still waiting for me when I get here.
I have a damn lot of stuff to do, and I haven't touched a thing. I have more to say, but I've said enough for now.
All I want is animals to be free...
