[ mood | cold ]

I've just realised It's been a year since I landed myself in Christchurch hosptial. It's amazing what life can bring and the fact that I turned twenty one is a miricle in it's self. (although that was yesterday) It's also been one month since I last updated and that's mainly because I've been conserntrating on my writing and finguring out my new layout which I finally decided to chose a premade layout from premade_ljs because they have absolutly beautiful ones which would be a shame not to use.

I had to debate between this one and another one and I'm glad I chose this one because I adore it and yeah. I'm happy. I still haven't decided what I'm going to do but it looks like I'm going to go down to Dundin for a year and see what that ends up like. I just need a change of senery something other than Wellington and Masterton and somewhere away from my parents it seems.

I'm trying to figure out what to do next year. I know it's only seven months away but that's my point. It's been nearly three years since I've finished school and two years since my course.

So I'm seriously thinking about doing another course next year I just don't know which one to do or where to do it. I'm also thinking about moving away from my parents- maybe even Christchurch.

I just don't know anymore what to do and I know things can change in seven months- just like it can change in a year it's just so difficult to think what I want to do and what to plan out. Because if you had told me this time last year what I would be doing this time this year I would of defently laughed in your face. So who knows really what I could be doing this time next year.

Twice in one month. Getting back into updating see :-) Still trying to do the whole finding a job thing which gets rather tiresome at times. I still need to find one and I do need to find one soon if I could. In other news I may just be in our paper which shall be interesting. However the not so happy part about it is that I shall be in my pj's if I am.

Why? I hear you all ask. Well we had another fire alarm today and I was still in bed (as it was at 9:30am on Easter Monday who gets up early when you don't have to?) so I basically threw a jacket over me and with out my glasses exited our building. The joyness of firealarms.

Anyway a photographer and also a reporter pulled up and took a couple of photo's of my mum and I outside our building (one with a fireman behind us too) the fire alarm was a false alarm however I was in my bright pink and purple little miss naughty pj's....

Eventful morning. Not much of an eventful afternoon but I was happy about that. Mum, Dad and I decided to go for a drive and ended up getting lost but finding our way back again so all was well.

I wish I could stick with a plot to a story and just write. It just annoys me from time to time when a new (sometimes better sometimes worse) idea comes through. I just wish I could have the dedication to stay with one thing.

It's just annoying.

In other news I still haven't gotten a job. I'm still living at my parents. My goal was to move down to Wellington at the end of the year well that hasn't happened yet and I don't think It will. Maybe I should do what my friend did and try another place for a few months to see how I like it. Hmmm may as well apply for that job in Rotarua then.

This is really just a test on Rich Text but I thought I may as well update this anyway. 

Mum's going down to Wellington for the day so I've offered to look after the hotel while she's gone. She hasn't gone yet but she will be soon and hopefully on my list to do things I will get to tidy my room with out anyone interrupting. Which will be a good thing because it's getting to the point where it's even annoying me and that point is always bad. 

Sometime before the second lot of school holidays (in other words while all the little kids are all at school) I hopefully will be able to go down to Wellington for a week and go on a week long job hunt for two part time jobs. Because that might actually be the better idea then starting straight with a full time job, I'm not actually sure any more. So I'm slowly planning that idea so when I present it to my course tutor and my parents (who will probably let me go- have I mentchioned latley how much I hate living at home?) But I've also got to save up first due to the fact that part of the proposal will be (the one on my parents side) for me paying for it.

Oh and I'm also going to be doing some creative writing today hopefully because I absloutly need to.

Alright after a few months of taking a breif holiday (alright a long) holiday from Live journal I've decided to update this thing. Not much has happened since I last did a proper update though, I've been on more job interviews. Been informed that I need more experience in the job that I'm trying to apply for.

I have decided though I'm going to start applying for some part time jobs in Wellington and hopefully be out of my parents house by Mid June/July this year. I do not want to be living in my parents house for Two years and I want off the unemployment benfit because I hate being on it. I really do. I want to be making my own money. I want to be employed. I don't want to be sitting around doing nothing.

[ mood | calm ]

1. Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

2. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

4. Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women
are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

6. Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile
couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

7. Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours,
the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's
why we have only one religion in America.

9. Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.



Re-post this if you believe love makes a marriage.

I didn't make it to my goal of 10K tonight but I will tomorrow morning. I just a) need sleep and b) need sleep.


I also had a minor breakdown when Kevin one of my parents workers at the hotel my parents own took over my custmores and repeated what I had already bloody well told him. So that killed my creativity too.

I'm still pretty pissed off about it so I'm going to bed now Goodnight :-)

I didn't get to yesterdays goal of 5000 words but I felt dead and had to sleep. Today I would have written more except I had to fold letters and stuff them into envlope for dad (I got paid for it $10 bucks an hour)

However my goal is that by Sunday I shall have 15,000 words.

Which means I've gotta get writing.

Total words written. But I found a mix cd that's given me loads of ideas for my story. Now all I've got to do is figure out how to add them in and get past the stupid but nessary job interview in chapter two and I think my characters are taking the plot to a new level.

Evil characters.

I need another 1151 words TONIGHT to make sure I'm up to date on my novel. Maybe joining nanowrimo this late wasn't such a good idea after all :-S

At least next year I'll be prepared :-D

and at least I'm finally up to chapter two

Last night I signed up for http://www.nanowrimo.org/ I left it a bit late but I've started to write my novel already. It's a little close to my life but I have tweaked it.

It's about a twenty one year old who's looking for work in the hotel indistrury and keeps running into the same guy at her interviews. She thinks that he's going for the same jobs that she is but is he?

That's the basic plot for it. So far.
