Start of a New Year?

A New Good Year.

So quick update I guess.

* Yes I have written the prompt up, but because of my NaNoWriMo experience, I wrote a draft and it needs some work. I think you'll be surprised in the direction I've taken it.

* My girlfriend filled out her FAFSA and has been accepted into the program she wants. Seeing how she didn't have a job last year, her expected contribution is $0 and she'll get good pell grants.

* And last but not least, her unemployment finally went through. She'll have some weekly money to help with the bills and can pay off her vehicle.

So all in all, especially for my girlfriend, this year is her year I think. Which would make my year. So now I'm off to apply for a summer job that will get me in the area we want to settle and if I am correct will lead/turn into a permanent, even if only seasonal, kind of job. And I'm okay with the seasonal because that gives me a few months to work on writing...


  1. Ohhh I love NaNoWriMo! I've never actually signed up and participated, but I've always wanted to. However, I have the slight problem where if it's not a short story, I don't finish it. Oops.

    Glad your girlfriend is having a fabulous year so far!

  2. Yeah I finally got the guts to participate in NaNo, but I barely made it 4K words. Life kind of got busy. But I think I learned the more important lessons about it which is just write.... Plus I was taking something that I intended to be a short story and tried to make it longer... I should have went with my original idea.
