I made some serious headway in Final Fantasy X today, getting past that accursed temple where you're on the moving walkway and have to navigate around like an idiot. It took me a while, but I beat it, and now I'm in the next dungeon wandering around as Yuna trying to find the rest of my party. A lot of people complain about FFX but I think it has one of the more cohesive worlds and stories, with deep themes. It's true the game is a hallway like FFXIII, but I think it's loads better than that game.
I had a rough day yesterday. No real reason why, was just depressed. It was rainy outside too, which didn't help. I just felt really bad. And I wasn't able to get in touch with my friends either which sucked. My best friend Katharine got her phone stolen by a student at her school (she's a teacher) and I haven't been able to text her all day like I usually do, which has affected me too. I tried writing but couldn't focus on anything at all. But finally the day came to an end, and now I've slept for a few hours and it's 3:30AM here and I feel much better. Stupid brain chemicals.
Can't sleep. Drinking some hot milk with sugar-free cocoa. Been up all night. Did some writing, but mostly just been moping and thinking. I realized one of the reasons I have been so effective writing lately is because I think I've been doing it with a chip on my shoulder. A part of me has been writing angry, like trying to say, "Enough!" I dunno, I can't explain it.
Another year, another BaD done. Time passes fast in life. If you blink, you'll miss it. I think everybody who participated did a GREAT job, even those who couldn't do it every day. It's the thought that counts, and just being part of the community is a cool thing, I think. BaD is kind of our own personal holiday where we remember 1up, and celebrate both the present and the future of our blogging. It's nice that we do it.
Sorry, I of all people have been slacking at BaD. I HAVE been sleeping, a little, but most every second of my time has been spent writing, and I really haven't the energy for more serious blogs other than updates to say hello. I've probably written/rewritten about 200 pages in the past five days, and I'm so elated that I have been kicking so much ass. I've been skipping around from project to project and gotten past a lot of humps I've had, sometimes ones that have existed for years. I think maybe I finally reached critical mass where I realized I was sick of wasting time and being lackadaisical about writing, and now I just feel like writing all the time. Nothing else compares. I don't know if this will last, but I'm trying to develop this into a habit at least to sustain this sort of productivity as best I can.
