My journal is Friends-Only, comment to be added, if you really want to.  I deleted my last journal because I just did not have 3 weeks of time to make all 1,400 posts private and I needed to make my blog private for confidential reasons.

Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays

Most definitely Elf!  This is my favorite Christmas movie and unfortunately because of finals, I have been unable to view it yet this year.

Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays

I want a sewing machine so I can make a quilt for a dear friend.

Writer's Block: Study break

What are you studying or did you study in school? Is it related to what you want to do for your career?

I am studying Biochemistry and Biotechnology. This does relate to what I want to do for my career. My career choices are either Microbiology, Forensic Biology or something like neuropsychology.

OMG!  I got an email about my submission to the NHCC bi-annual publication and it made it to through the first round of selections!  There is a good chance my story will be published!!!  This is awesome!  I want to be a writer and having something of mine published (granted it is only a school thing) is still pretty cool!  The story is about my time as a mute.  I'll put the story behind a cut for you to read if you haven't yet.  I still have some work to do with the ending, but it is pretty good for the first 4 snippets.  The formatting is off.

Writer's Block: A charming defense

If you could conjure an animal spirit protector, which animal would you choose, and why?

The bison.  I have designated it as my "spirit animal".  It's an odd choice, I know, but I feel drawn to buffalo.

Writer's Block: Out, Out Damn Spot!

Have you ever been passionate about something to the point of an obsession? If so, how did it impact the rest of your life? Did you ever (or would you want to) break free?

Yes, it's a wonderful show called Bones.  I generally find something every once in awhile that I latch on to and become completely obsessed with.  While I do like that I love the show, I wish I could love it just a little less so I don't keep pissing people off.  I just need to find someone to talk to about Bones who is just like me.
Do you prefer to live in an urban or rural environment? Why?

I have lived in both suburban (Plymouth, MN) and rural (Morris, MN) environments and there are things I love and things I hate about each.  I loved the rural setting because it was a close knit community, I could walk anywhere within the city and I could actually see the stars at night.  It was beautiful to be there.  I hated being so far from civilization though.  I had to drive over an hour just to go to a Target or a movie theater that played more than two movies.  Suburban living is more for me because I have lived in the suburbs for 21 years.  I like that there are so many things to do within driving distance.  I love that there are actual places that are open for 24 hours.  I don't feel so isolated in the suburbs.  I don't like that while everything is in driving distance, not much is within walking distance.  I have never lived in an urban setting and I can tell that I probably wouldn't like it.

Writer's Block: Dream reader

Do you have any recurring dreams? If so, what do you think it says about your personality? How about your unconscious hopes, fears, and desires?

My most frequent dreams include trying to lock the basement sliding door, but every time I check to make sure it locked it opens.  I try several times and it never locks.  Most of the time there is someone chasing me too so I am scared and trying to lock the door.  Another is me missing the school bus.  I haven't been on a school bus since high school.  Sometimes I try to run after the bus or other times I am in my house when the bus leaves and I decide to just drive to school.

I'm not sure what the lock dreams mean, but I suspect the bus dreams mean I'm missing my chance at life by staying holed up in my house.
Here's a fanfiction I wrote for a fiction writing contest.  It's my first completed 30 Rock one so be kind.  Oh and I was hopped up on Ambien when I wrote it and it was 4am.
