Why does StumbleUpon need a category for "Left-Handed"?

Well, I got on the computer just now to read some blogs, write a bit, and edit.

I was reading one, and the author mentioned "Stumbleupon". So I, being the hapless idiot that I am, Googled it.

I'm insanely intrigued, and I've just found 100000000000000000000 more ways to procrastinate. *click* Yupp, just hit procrastinating. :D

... I have no life.

In other news, my proof shipped today. What does this mean, loyal readers? Well, now I'll finally stop talking about it. Well, once I get it, I promise I will. :D So, y'all should be excited.

... With all the times I say "y'all", you'd think I was from Texas. o.o

And now I'm all of a sudden really tired. Good night, everybody! (No, I haven't done any writing. Don't judge me.)

CreateSpace proof...

I have sent in my novel. (: It's being (hopefully) validated as we speak/type. :D As soon as I get it in the mail, I'll put pictures of it up here.

I don't know why this is such a big deal to me. I mean, I know: it's not published, it's really crappy, etc. But it seems like having this novel, having something to hold in my hands and read like I'd read any other book, means that my November amounted to something. (:

In other news, we go to State tomorrow! State Choral Festival, that is. (: We're in the top 10% of choirs in Michigan, anddddd we get to perform again in front of MORE judges and be critiqued. It's going to be hellishly hot, but at least I get out of Economics. :P

Speaking of Choir...

Next week is our big concert. It's going to be fun, but I have to miss all of my dance. ): Did I mention that already? If so, sorry. :P The teacher was so pissed when I told her. She's ready to fucking kick me out of Thriller. Gah, I'm nervous...

Short post, but I didn't have much to say; I'm far too tired. Curse you, Interwebz, for distracting me until 4:30 am!

Kthxbai. ;D

Hey, Novel. Haven't talked to you in a while...

So today is a historic day. In my life, at least.

I have rebegun working on my novel.

I know, I know. It's crazy. It's been five months, and I actually gave up yesterday. But then, I was about to send it in for my proof copy, and I had just gotten a laptop (IT'S SILVER AND SHINY AND WORKS ZOMG!), and I realized that this thing that I call a work of fiction has the potential to be, if not great, better then it is.

So it's 8:30 at night, on a Sunday, and I'm considering staying up all night so I can work on it (AND ALSO SURF THE NET ON MY SHINY NEW SILVER LAPTOP! ZOMG!). And also 'cause I had a buncha coffee today. ... I like coffee.

I'm going to be a screwed up adult, if I continue in this vein.

But aaaaaaaanywho, I'm pretty sure I don't have anything 'important' going on tomorrow, unless you count dance, which I don't 'cause I go three times a week. So I figure, I can stay up and have (almost) no repurcussions.

And yes, I am procrastinating by writing this blog post. He... he?

Also also, I'm finally back into blogging. (: I've missed it. I've wanted to many times, but I simply never got around to actually typing the darned thing.

So, here's my gift to you, loyal readers, because I can actually call myself a writer again. (:

... Editing counts as writing. :P

Later, peeps. I might write another post tonight, if the insomnia kicks in (it probably will) and I actually DO stay up all night.
