I haven’t blogged in six days, whoops! I’m so sorry everyone.
I officially finished working the night shifts a week ago and since then had two days off and been working AM shifts. It is all prepping myself for the 9-5 job starting in the beginning of December. I am just grateful that I have six days off in between the hotels, it will give me time to relax and prepare for the new role.
The rest of my life has been same old, my pictures on Flickr are getting more recognition and though I’m still not going to dabble into Photoshop I am glad my unedited photos are still getting likes. On the writing front, my imagination has returned to what I used to have during my school days with new ideas and stories popping into my head at the most random of times, I just hope that I actually complete one of them, that would be a highlight for me. To finish a series or a short story.
Relationship news, my boyfriend will be booking his flight to come here end of February next year, next week. It is all happening and 2018 is already shaping up to be amazing for myself and my family.
I have been on a creative run since my three days off and it has been focused on this single fantasy story that I have previously mentioned in other diary entries. I even have written notes for book 2 plus a chapter which will be continued after I have completed the first one. I am thankful that my imagination has not left me and that I am still able to create scenarios and ideas in my head.
I have also completed my map and my current novel is up to 78 pages, not bad considering I haven’t done any kind of para roleplay in either IMVU or Second Life for the past three-four years. I only hope that this imagination of mine continues to flourish so that I can finish a story for once. It is a bad habit of mine because I haven’t completed an actual story ever!
All this excitement of leading up to the end of the year, my new work opening at the beginning of next month and I will be joining them in January has got this week going very quickly. Today on my day off was quiet during the day though I have been writing a fair lot even if its one shots that have been inspired by my dreams. I used to do this a lot when I was in high school, I’d have a random idea pop into my head and I used to quickly write it down in a notebook or type up a story on the downstairs computer.
It is why I have so many books that are half full in my book shelf and in the drawers too, I had an endless imagination that a tiny piece was only used during my roleplaying days on IMVU. I guess being hardly online in either virtual universe, the imagination is waking up even more and I am creating my own alphabet, drawing up maps and creating new fantasy species especially for the bigger tales. Alongside my Ame chronicles, I have about four other big stories saved on my laptop.
Three days out of eight have been done and dusted so far and I still have yet to continue my exercise, though I’m still very much moving around but not at a cardio level. Mum has been telling me about my budget for our Europe trip in August, thank goodness I been saving up is all I can say despite the random splurges of cute buys online…
Our clocks went back an hour today and I am forever grateful for the extra sleep I got this morning turning six hours into seven, I also worked with my front office manager today, despite being constant with our check outs, the guests were all so lovely and happy people, so we had a lot of fun while on shift. I also got fed breakfast at work today too, we got to have eggs and hash browns plus a free lunch! I can’t say no to fish and chips.
Been on a writing spree when it comes to the story of Mistaken Identity, I am up to chapter 6 for it and so far ironing out the plot while trying to calm down all the crazy ideas that keep entering my head around the fictional tale. Watched Burlesque to help with the dance sequences since the main focus is in the club. Can’t wait for this week to finish though, not just because I’m looking forward to a mini weekend away with mum but to get my rest will be nice.
I haven’t done a mood post in so long for its always been filled up with my personal diary and five likes for the week. Today I’m switching back to this heading because I have been on a creative streak the past week and a half. Whether it is on Minecraft creating beacons, mini forts for my journey and even train lines to go down mountains easier or having four folders consisting of four different stories including Ame’s chronicles.
The other three stories have come from my notebooks of random plot lines that I have jotted down during my high school years, if the idea looks interesting enough again or I can evolve it to something new, I will create it. The stories I have are an Alice in Wonderland rendition, Mistaken Identity- a college girl who desires something more than studying and the Seven Realms- an original fantasy story about a half Dragon/elf king ruling a planet.
I use IMVU to socialise and Second Life if there is something cute in a current event that I want to buy but other than that, my SL days are numbered as I’m becoming less meh over it unless the boyfriend is around but he and I moving into reality very soon 😀
Four days later and it looks like I forgot to keep you all posted in what’s happening on my end (yet again) Sorry! I have this weekend off and just got home 30mins ago after spending all evening out with Mei but instead of our usual dinner and movie outing we just had dinner tonight to continue discussions on each other’s story. My story Life Giver has expanded into a trilogy now and I have written notes passed the halfway mark in my little black book 😀
Mei’s been seeking help and creative inspiration from yours truly because she is officially writing up a story line of her first RP character from back in our IMVU days, the big sister of Ame Hayato, Meiakane.
In between the delicious Japanese and Korean cuisine that we eat as well as sating our sweet teeth with waffles, we are well and truly on a roll in getting these stories written. I also have literally 10 shifts of work left until my annual leave! Can’t wait for palm trees, white sand and lots of sun!
This week’s five likes from me;
- Having both Saturday and Sunday off after 6 days of work
- Waffle bites and peppermint tea
- Passing the halfway mark in my note book for Lotus Hexad trilogy
- Shopping in Mooii store tonight
- Ghostbusters 1 and 2 on blue ray for bedtime movie 😀
I watched the first Ghostbusters before I went out tonight and got the second one ready for later, also making sure my younger sister comes home safe tonight, she is at a friend’s 30th birthday I think in the city.
After deciding to restart the Ame Hayato Chronicles as well as continue writing up the many random stories featuring my human warlock Andais Lu, I have realised after the two days since I posted something in this blog I haven’t done anything yet. Call it procrastinating at its finest, all the ideas are there in my head and ready to be written into a great short story and yet I still haven’t done it. Don’t worry it will happen soon, after I get inspired to do my next fashion tile for Second Life.
In other real life news I am really sick of this back burning that our fire brigades have been doing up in our mountains to prepare us for next Summer because we get severe bushfires. Don’t they realise we need a break from all this smoke or our air quality will be that of Shanghai! x.x
