Weekly (monthly?) post [Aug. 16th, 2006|07:37 am]
I keep tell you all that I'm boring, and that's the main reason I haven't posted lately (because do you really want to fall asleep reading my post?)

Gosh, I've been slacking. I really need to write a few letters - real letters, not online or e-cards, as I'm still in the old mind-set that real physical paper letters are actually more 'personal'. My girlfriend - she was one of my bestfriends in grad school but we drifted after I graduated (I am/was three years ahead of her) and after she got married - had a baby a couple months ago. I believe her name is Kristin Sophie (Sophie's her middle name, btw) although I know her grandpa (my friend's father-in-law) was supposed to come up with a Chinese name for her middle name (something about superstition/tradition with the birthdate and last name; or something along those lines - don't ask me - I have no idea). She sent me pictures online, but I have yet to write her a congrats letter. I also have been meaning to write a friend that we (my sister and I) made during our last European trip; we sorta became pen pals. So possibly - hopefully - tonight, while my sister is on the computer, I will NOT watch mindless TV and just write a couple letters.

Anyone have a hard time writing physically on paper with pencil or pen? I am so used to writing directly to computer - especially my fics and novel-in-progress - that it's hard for me to write my ideas on paper and then transpose them onto computer. I really ought to get cranking though... that novel isn't going to finish itself. I guess I haven't really been sufficiently motivated or angsty enough. The last few chapters are - naturally - more dramatic and a little angst-filled as it's nearing the climax and resolution. *sigh*

I'm not sure if I will have time to write the next lesson for arithharmony this week since this is now my sixth day of work (I am working eight days in a row this week). We'll see. I still have to grade homework and the test and update the hourglasses. I wonder if we still get participation points for posting to Witherwings, as I don't recall seeing our points listed. I could just be blind; that wouldn't be new.

My new layout - SQUEE! - but for some reason, something is up with the coding if I try to 'go earlier / back' in my entries. Thank goodness the flist works all right, and I actually don't look at my past entries too often. Ah well. I can always go look in the 'archive' or specific month if I need to.

Note to self: Do mtfmpharmony and harmonyrunes homework!

Woah... Slytherin won the H_E house cup this term! Congrats to them! (although I don't think I have any snakes in my flist from H_E) I am happy though that us Puffs did not get last place again ;).

God... my flist is long! It takes me quite a while to go through it... I hope I read everything that was important! (like *Squee!* for sevarem)

Perhaps you and I can hold one another accountable to write these pen & paper letters/cards, then? I need to write one to my cousin (in case you missed the 'big' announcement, she's 16 and pregnant...oy.) and some little thinking-of-you sort of note cards for some others. Very glad you mentioned it! Now...get to work! ;] (This deserves the beautiful icon that ladybluestar made at my request...the Procrastinatin Ravenclaw icon!)

So with you on the physical writing thing, too, usually. I've had to do a lot of it at work lately, so my hand is 'in shape' right now, but usually it's as you've said.

Homework...yes...another reason for this icon...

It's just nice to know you're still alive and well. :)

hehe... ok, I will *poke* you to remind you to write your letters too!

I'm alive, but as I said at HH, I think everyone's been slacking because of the end-of-the-summer drag. There just isn't much motivation to do anything!

I agree that they are both more personal and more difficult to write. *sigh*

I have been sooo unmotivated lately.

I need to tally points as well. I think I'll go do that right now.

I find it hard to just write on paper these days too.

Actually you reminded me there are some letters i should write too. Must get on that.

The layout is adorable btw.
