Look at the time my friend

Yesterday was a pretty bad day. Dad was feeling sick and Nanna decided to be really difficult. She wouldn’t take her medication and was really ‘off the planet’. I was so tired and exhausted and just wanted to shut off and go to sleep. I kept snapping at people and staring off into space. I have been a bit the same today and it really frustrates me. But I am trying my best to keep on plodding along. I know this could be so much worse, I just have to be thankful for how lucky I am.

Today marks the start of National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo. I don’t exspect to win, but I am still going to have a go and see how far I can go. It’s probably not the best time, but I guess in some ways it could also be a good distraction. I have currently written 484 words, a suprising start for me. I just started writing and things began spilling out. I do realise that if I am going to change the story it must be in the first three days NOT after that, or halfway through the month like I have gone before! XP

Poll is closed, looks like bubble.nu is the winner! I actually had hoped quirky.nu would win because I really love the sound of that domain, but nevermind I shall still spread the bubble love and hope it can be a useful resource for people needing free hosting. I upgraded my hosting plan at Surpass to make room for all the new bubbles! :k

  1. Hello my beautiful. *hugs* Ah, I’m sorry to hear that yesterday wasn’t a very good day for the family. Sometimes you have those days but I promise that it will get better! I’m really happy to see that you’re taking the positive out of it and indeed still “plodding along”. Your family appreciates that so much regardless of behaviour sometimes, and you and your family being there for your dad is the best thing possible. So I hope you always find the strength to “plod along” because it is so worth it. *loves* I’m always here for you of course, also if you need to call me I’m here.

    I’ve never participated in NaNoWriMo! (that’s so hard to type out) but always admire people that do. Actually, I’ve never taken part in TFL Secret Santa, come to think of it…

    Ah, so bubble.nu was the sure winner! ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s so so so so cuuute. (: But if you really love quirky.nu why not go for that? I’m mega looking forward to it whatever it turns up being. I know you’ll do a bootilicious job.

    Love you forever. Remember what I said!

  2. Awe…days like that bite. ๐Ÿ™ It’s hard to keep going when you can’t stay focused and become irritable. I get like that a lot these days, it’s so frustrating and then everyone around you become irritable as well.

    I’m excited for NaNoWriMo. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m not sure how much I have so far. I’m going to try really hard to get it written, but this month is filled with the end of school, holidays and a musical. ๐Ÿ™ If only it had been like September. ๐Ÿ˜› In the mean time, I know I have over a page written. I actually started in the middle of mine and will be working backwards. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I wish I had something to be hosted by bubble.nu…so cute. But, then again, I’m hardcore addicted to .nus. They’re so cute! ๐Ÿ˜€ One day, I shall have my own. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Love! ๐Ÿ™‚ It shall all be fantabulous soon, I promise, or else you can make me dress like a Slytherin for a week. And since I’m a Gryffindor, that would be bad. ๐Ÿ˜› But I love you? ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. I’m sorry things aren’t going too well at home! ๐Ÿ™ I can honestly relate, and I have been in the situation you have been before, although it was my Nana and I was ten. No comparison, but I know how much stress and utter emotional duress can come from this. I am glad you’re are getting through it and thinking positively, it can be so hard to do such a thing, so it’s very much admirable of you!

    Yes, NaNoWriMo! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m so excited, you’re one of the only online friends I have who actually does it, so it’s nice to see someone is doing it! I hope you do get along with your story, I know it’ll be splendid!

    Bubble.nu and quirky.nu were my favorites, and I honestly agree with Raine; why not go with it? Whichever you do, I know it’ll be awesome! ๐Ÿ˜›

    I know I keep saying it, but I want you to know I’m here, though I can’t seem to catch anybody lately. Even if through e-mail, I’m always here!

  4. Awww i’ve had a couple of days which are like and I snap at people too which is so sad coz sometimes I make other people feel that i’m taking them for granted and all. But sometimes I just can’t control my emotions especially when i’m super exhausted :s

    Bubble.nu won, eh? Awww it still sounds cute.. Too bad the quirky domain you liked didn’t win! :s

  5. -hugs- ganbatte~ Good luck on NaNoWriMo. bubble.nu is really cuuute and spreading the bubbles sounds cute in itself -imgaines the bubbles flying around-. LOL. Though I do still like quirky.nu and had voted for it.

  6. Good luck with the novel!

    I’m having too much of a writers block to write anything serious.

    I voted for quirky.nu. I thought that was the coolest sounding name.

  7. Family life can be tricky…I hope things are better today! Good luck with NaNoWriMo. Every year I toy with the idea of joining but I just can’t seem to find the real motivation to do it. I guess I let the fear of actually having to stick to a goal hinder me (which sounds really bad when you think about it!).

  8. Congratulations, you have officially gotten further than I’ve ever gotten when trying to write a novel myself. I seem to doubt myself early and then it never gets anywhere because I’m too critical. Go figure, right?

    Sorry to hear you had a rough day. Today will be better!
