The Lighter Note

I was just reading my most recent post and… wow, dark much? I wasn’t even in a bad mood when I wrote it, but somehow, it came out all sorts of jaded and mean. Honestly, I do like my friends quite a bit. And I’m sure that if they ever grow into quasi-civilized members of society, I would love to stay connected to them. I have a few friends whom I don’t go to school with, and whom I love quite dearly and would of course stay connected with throughout my life, too, like you, Riko.

Anyways, since this is supposed to be a writing blog, I thought I should mention that I’ve recently entered a writing contest for the upcoming Machine of Death: Volume 2 book, which is a follow-up to (just guess, I dare you) Machine of Death. I entered one short story, and I plan on submitting at least one more. Each person is allowed three submissions, so have at it!

I just checked my piggy bank and I have managed to save up most of my gift money, so I have ~$170 for upcoming events this summer, which is great! I think I have something like $3 on a gift card to a store I really like, so that’s pretty much a moot point, but I have a gift card for Kohl’s that’ll hopefully get me through any beginning-of-summer shopping I need to do, and a treasure trove of bookstore gift cards, so there’s always that! I don’t think I’ve used a single one of them yet, either, so that’s good. I’ll be able to satisfy any book cravings as the months crawl on, which is such a relief, because the less actual money (as in cash) I spend now, the more I’ll have for such exploits as conventions and trips and concerts that I plan on going to later on. I intend to use whatever’s left after that to shop for back-to-school clothes, but I could have a little forethought and save for, say, Christmas shopping or the like.

I think there need to be some money-giving holidays in the Summer! I mean, I’ve got my birthday and Christmas for winter, and there’s usually a little cash involved in Easter if I play my cards right, plus the usual spattering of report card money throughout the school year… but summer–the months during which I have the most time and means to go shopping–is the time of year that I have almost no opportunities to get money!

Okay, I’ve been basically complaining about this since April or something, and I’m sure everyone I know is tired of hearing it, so I’ll just cut myself off and try to think of something else to write about today.

I’ve got nothing. I just got the best sleep of my life, and I’m suspecting that it’s because, A, I only slept for 8 hours, and, B, I ate a ton of food in my dreams, so I’m gonna go now and enjoy my day. See y’all later, chickedies!

  1. Oh, poor little Writer Chickedy (re: your financial woes)!

    I’m glad you followed up on yesterday’s post. I was feeling a little badly for Riko and all of your other “little friends”.

    Many (many) hugs, from me to you, and have a good evening. ❤
