Birthdays and stuff

Journal Entry: Tue May 27, 2014, 1:27 AM



Hello peoples :)

I recently celebrated my 27th (yikes!) birthday. I had a wonderful day. Started off with breakfast of french toast cooked by my mom and brother. (A yummy nom to wake up to). Then a family friend took me and my mother out for lunch (I had fillet steak!). I then had a family supper of my favourite meal (roast pork, PEAS!!, etc). Even the weather cooperated and it was a fantastic day - not too hot and not too cold!

And to top it all off I just (finally) got the time to go to the post office to fetch a parcel that arrived on the 12th (my birthday is the 20th) to find a wonderful present by the lovely vespera (see, it arrived in time mouse). I absolutely love the music, just my type, and the pen thingie is so awesome XD. The card is so cute too! (All in all you know me well!) So thank you so much for that!

Thank you for all who wished me. I had a lovely day.




My PC has finally decided that it is only going to live 20% of the time. It switched off during a game I was playing yesterday (God bless Anno1701 and qwibes who recommended it to me - another one who knows me well)so I switched around my computers and am now working from the old lappy. I wish I could replace the damn thing. Would be so much easier. However I am saving up for Sims4 when it comes out (it sounds fantastic). Bit pointless though if I don't have the PC, but one has to get the priorities right XD.

So right now it's the very old lappy for work-work and the old lappy (a gift from a friend of my dad's to my brother when his PC fried itself) for DA and general work. I still prefer my desktop though.




Still looking for mentors for Adopt-A-Writer . There are many people waiting to be adopted.




Quick question - does anyone else have trouble hiding messages group threads? I have been having this problem for ages and DA has yet to rectify it. It makes things like keeping track of adoptees and mentors for Adopt-A-Writer , or songs used for Understood-Accepted , a difficult task as I cannot hide what I have used. Anyone else with this issue?




The amazing KieWakakie has finished editing my book Fighting Darkness (of which the first chapter can be found in my prose folder in my gallery). Now I just need to finish formatting (I figured out how to make it into a PDF all by myself - go girl!) and the front cover (which I am not sure I have put together correctly but it's the best I can do.) I had to wait for my friend (who paid for everything) to send me the barcode so I could include that into the cover design and I am waiting on inspiration for the back summery / blurb (got to make it interesting!) I will work with KieWakakie on that, as he is excellent at things like that.




Front-2-Back is slowly (like a dying snail really) growing in numbers. If you feel like utilising it's services just remember to comment on two works that are already in the gallery and when I send you a question asking you to you can just link the comments to me. Alternatively if you forget let the question remind you XD. But it is growing and I like seeing pieces submitted and people joining.




My-Soul-Bleeds-Ink will be holding a critique challenge in June, and with a bit of planning GrammarNaziCritiques will be holding one in July / August. Keep watching their journals if you are interested as the announcements will be posted there. Also, GrammarNaziCritiques is looking for more prose entries to critique, as the folder is running low. Help keep our critics active and on their toes - write and submit prose. Just remember to read the simple rules in the journal XD.




And that's all I can remember to talk about. Thank you all for reading through this - laboriously typed up on a lappy with stiff keys - and I hope that you are all doing well.

Ciao

I'm a relatively simple person who likes to write. I value honesty, especially in comments and critiques, and loyalty.

If you are going to fave something of mine it would be nice if you could leave a comment as well. It is not required, but feedback is always welcome.

If you need to talk about anything feel free to note me.

Hey~~

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in supporting me in that endeavor of mine?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!
