Hail the conquering blogger come(th back)!

And here I am to say, with a flourish and a twirl, that I am BACK in the blogging world! No more bland scheduled posts and leaving comments unanswered for weeks! This is my happy face. Because I am happy.


It’s four am here right now, but I couldn’t sleep. I’d joked to my brother a week or so ago that I was going to do a blog post at midnight September first – I didn’t think I’d actually do it! I’ve missed you all a lot; though many of you have frequently emailed me and made me feel very loved during my absence 🙂

The past month was spent in —–

a. Doing school (I’m reallyreally hoping to finish my senior year before Christmas and start in the new year free as a bird to study whatever I want and WRITE!) It’s a weird feeling, actually winding down and finishing subjects I never thought I’d be done with.

b. Reading. That’s right, I actually got some READING done!!! Granted, I still have a huge TBR pile, but it’s dwindling. Slowly.

c. Writing. Ah, yes. I reached 73,000 words in Monster and am almost finished with it. I didn’t expect to be slowed by the trial scene, but I was – however, I hope to have the novel finished within a week. I think I’m also experiencing prolonging-the-ending-because-I-don’t-want-to-let-my-baby-go. ARGH, why must I love these people so much?

d. Working on art commissions. I feel like I have an artistic block right now, and my artwork looks stiff and forced when that happens. Therefore, it irritates me.

e. Polishing up my armor. Of God, that is; my sandals of peace were getting a little shoddy. With my parent’s help and a lot of prayer, though, I’m getting back on track and am becoming a nice person again!

f. Planning for NaNoWriMo. Ah yes. An entire notebook devoted to Unforget, Cayne, Moon, telepathic officials and memory dens. It’s marvelous.

g. Listening to music. Lots and lots of music thanks to some epic friends who kept an eye on the KPop world and sent me files. You’re awesome.

I have a lot of plans for after I graduate – things I’ve been wanting to do but haven’t had time for. For instance, I’m going to become a big reader again – and review every book I read on the Book Fae, which will undergo a complete makeover. I’m going to devote a lot more time to writing as well as studying (writing, mythology, history, herbology). I want to finally get my driver’s permit and eventually a license (so I can, you know, drive places). In September I’m joining a Bible study group along with my mom and older sister, and I hope to make new friends and grow in God.

For now, though… I have a lot of blog updates to catch up on 😉

Big hugs to you all; I’ve missed you so much –

  1. Ah, merry-hearted whirly-gig you have indeed been sorely lacking. But I am delighted to see the progress you have made, in our absence ;). Also, not to down the book-fae but I do know that thechristianmanifesto is looking for book reviewers. It’s a bit intense, a book a week is what is asked. Think about it, check out the site etc

  2. Yay!!! You’re back!! 😀 I feel for you and graduating, I’m doing the same here. Hopefully I’ll be finished in February of 2013. I can’t believe that Nanowrimo is coming up so fast! I need to start planning too.

  3. Hurrah! The blogosphere always perks up when you’re around to post, I must say. But I am glad to see all the things you accomplished during your month off; reading the crossed off items on other people’s “to do” lists always makes me feel more productive myself, if that makes any sense. And your further plans are exciting as well: I want to see more of BookFae, to be sure!

    (Most unfair of you to be finishing school soon, though. I’ve got until June of 2013 before I call it quits – ho hum!)

    • Awww, thank you! I feel perkier when I’m blogging. ^.^ I know, lists always make me feel so organized, even if I didn’t write them. I LOVE writing lists and checklists and planning things…and I hardly ever use them. It’s just fun to make them. XD I can’t wait to get BookFae up and going at full speed!!!! Well, you know, I AM two years older, so don’t worry. You’ll be graduating before I did 😀

  4. Whoa, you got a ton of stuff done! O_O You’re amazing!!! I’m so happy for you! 🙂 I wish you lots of luck in your future pursuits!

    Nice happy face! 🙂 You look very awake for 4 am… My siblings think you look like me there. I am not convinced… >.>

    Yay! You’re back! And so am I! Woohoo for both! 😀
    Now finish Monster! I’m off to write Tare…
    *vanishes most mysteriously; maybe I learn from him…*

  5. Oh, I’m so excited to see you back, Mirriam! I missed you so much!!! ^^ I’m glad you got so much accomplished, though.
    And, count your blessings, girl! A degree in Korean is going to keep me in school for a looooong time…so many unnecessary subjects, too, urgh. XD

    • I’m glad to be back! I missed you even though you were awesomely helpful during my absence =D Okay, you have a good point….I’ll learn by music and dramas and interviews. Much more fun. XD

  6. Ah, good to have you back. 🙂
    I really need to get reading. My supply of book reviews to schedule is looking… slim. Terrible. School takes up sooo much time. And it’ll be another… fourish years before I can graduate. Yay. -_- (Oh, and thanks for letting Eristor introduce me to that emoticon. Sooo expressive.) 🙂
