Holy F!

Today I woke up at 6am. Did I mean to wake up at 6am? F no! I have been known as of late - since the summer ended - to roll out of bed between 7:15 and 7:30 when I have to be on the bus by at least 7:55. I leave myself with BARELY enough time to brush my teeth, shower quickly, throw on make up and clothes, and run out of the house.

But for some strange reason, at 6am I was wide awake. I tried to fall back asleep for another hour and fifteen minutes... but then I was like, "What if I got up? What would happen?"

A long shower is what happened. One of those good showers where you can blast your awesome music (today was N.E.R.D "She Wants To Move" and Lily Allen "Alfie" - that's right, enough shower time for TWO songs!) I even got to leave conditioner in my hair for the correct amount of time, which is three minutes. I'm such a girl.

Then I brushed my teeth blasting more music, and I washed my face (with all 3 steps of face washing), and I took my time to do my hair. And my face, it looks like I took my time with my makeup! I had time to think about what I'm wearing, and I look trendy and presentable. And... I WATCHED ALL OF 30 ROCK SEASON 3. Which, well, consists of two episodes. But that's MORE EPISODES THAN I HAVE EVER WATCHED BEFORE GOING TO WORK.

Today's a big day.

It will never, ever happen again.

Oh, so yeah, this post wasn't meant to be about my morning routine when I get up an hour and a half early... it was supposed to be about NaNoWriMo. I was going to write a book this month, remember? It's November 7th - I should be about... 10,000 words in?

I'm no words in. I tried writing two seperate novels and got about 2,000 or 3,000 words in and gave up. There was absolutely no connection with my characters. In fact, I hated one of them so much that I actually began to think she was real and having to write about her was like having to see her in person - I wanted to kill her so bad. Which I actually could do... but she was the main character.. and I was 2,100 words in... that'd be bad.

So, I'm writing a play, or a show, or whatever it is. It's for Suffolk University... and the characters are based on my friends, or at least three of them. It was the idea of Jenny which I am executing. And I absolutely love it. I spend my days writing it, and then I think about it when I'm not writing it, and I constantly write little notes to what I could write about next, and more situations, and one character is based on Trevor and it's my favorite thing in the world to write about him - besides actually spending time with Trev. Aww, how nice did that sound?

But so I thought - the whole idea of NaNoWriMo is to do something you've always wanted to do but never took the time to do. To actually achieve your "dream" and not just say, "One day I'll write a book." So, I took that idea and decided, well, when will I ever get around to writing a show? I always say I want to, but I never actually attempt to do it. So now I'm 23 pages in... and I'm shooting for 60-70 so I'm at least 1/3 through and I'm only into the first week of November. So, for my own little month of writing, I'm totes on track.

And lately, I'm totes ecstatic about my life.

Have a happy Friday erry'body!
