I'll Name It After I Write It

Here comes a regular blog post. No poetry this time and no prose with veiled meanings. This isn't a post that's a sample of some larger piece I'm writing nor is it a post about what I plan on writing (though it may stray to that at some point). No. This is a blog post like few I have done before. This will be just me talking about life and what's going down for me at the present moment. I want this one to be fun.

First off, the unstoppable train that is college has finished it's long stop in Graduation Town and is now chugging full steam ahead to Post Gradatopia, and I'm their precious cargo. I've been out of school since December (minus one summer class that wasn't hard at all) and my next battle with education is starting come 9am Monday morning, August 22nd (happy bday mom!). Yes, I begin my 9 hours of grad classes on Monday and I am not excited for school to start like I falsely believed I was in past semesters. I don't think it will be hard, the classes at least. What I do think will be hard is having to have a job where I will probably need to work every hour I am available so that I can afford to live. See, unlike previous years of college, this year I am paying for half of my tuition and my parents are paying the other half. I know that is still alot easier than some people have it but it's a first for me and I apologize if it doesn't seem as big of a deal to you as it does for me. I am also planning and trying to help pay for a wedding at the same time.

That's right, I'm engaged to be married. Her name is Jessica and she is beautiful and amazing and everything I could want in a woman. I can't go on about her on here without being uber cliche but everything would be so true. She's perfect for me and I deeply love her with all my heart. She is a woman who encourages me in God and believes in my abilities and tells me when I'm wrong. She's not afraid to put me in my place and she can handle me when I get a bit out of hand. She's funny and thinks I am too and our life together will be amazing.

What else do I have to add to this? Hmm.... I could talk about my writing. I did say that I might touch on that a bit at some point. See, I left myself an out so that I can go back to it and not be a liar. Ok, we'll touch on that a bit. Rolling through the semester from August to December last year I wrote 2 or 3 poems max. That was mainly due to the hefty load of writing I was doing for my screenwriting class where I was drafting my first full length script. It comes from the novel I started way back when I did NaNoWriMo that one and only time. Since then I have been tweaking and revising it a bit every now and again and haven't been writing hardly any poetry at all. The script is coming along nicely and I have 87 pages of it done but there is alot of room for improvement.

So that's me in these recent days. I hope that all of you who read this have a blessed day and that none of you fall for the blunders of the sleeping priorities you may have dismissed. Good bye.
