Seeing something I didn't quite recognize in my bookmarks, I stumbled across a pretty neat short story! I have no idea when or why I bookmarked it, but it was fun to read. I thought I would share it with the few friends I have here on lj, haha. c:
"I had been in the water about an hour, and cold, exhausted, with a terrible cramp in my right calf, it seemed as though my hour had come. Fruitlessly struggling against the strong ebb tide, I had beheld the maddening procession of the water-front lights slip by, but now a gave up attempting to breast the stream and contended myself with the bitter thoughts of a wasted career, now drawing to a close."
The rest can be read here.
I don't know why, but I've been in a real reading mood lately. A friend reminded me of my Dragonite named Hayden from Sun of Suns, so I looked up the book summary to show her what it is. I really want to read it again, so I'm packing that for my long bus rides to and from school. The fifth book should be coming out sometime soon, awesome! I have all of them so far, but I'm afraid I lost track of two of the covers. I never threw them away, I just put them in one of those 'safe places' while a friend borrowed them.
In WoW, I've been doing the 'Green Hills Of Stranglethorn' quest line. (I only started it because RP wise, my character would love to read the pages from it.) I've been reading it and goodness. GOODNESS. Everything is magical.
School is magical too. Although I'm taking all the Intro classes at the moment (Save for two I was able to get out of since I scored high enough in my AP Art portfolios), I'm having a lot of fun. Delicious Analysis of Form Class. Delicious Intro to Game Development. In about 5-7 weeks my group and I will have a fully developed, original board game. I am very excited. \o/ However, it is time to sleep now. I have to head out early tomorrow to get some work done at school.
