Write up a mid-year “State of My Year” post.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us NOW.
I’ve never once considered recapping the first six months of my year so far, so I guess now’s the best time to start. But I’m so forgetful about things that happen in my life that it takes me a few moments to actually come up with something. But here’s a few that I can think of so far:
- I actually finished a novel length story. Forget that it was fan fiction, but it was still 140K words! And it had a beginning, a middle and an ending. It even got its own prologue. So, that was an accomplishment right there, and one that I’m proud of. Even if it is fan fiction.
- Because of fangirling late last year, and starting a fangirl blog this year, I made new friends online and that’s a wonderful feat by itself. I also learned how to use Twitter because of them, and now am quite well-versed with Twitter, although I ended up deactivating my massage twitter account because it just got too boring, really. What do massage therapists talk about anyway? Especially when we want to be politically correct? Apparently, in my experience, nothing too exciting.
- I bought a new car! Well, it’s not the car of my dreams but it’s still a car – a sensible one at that. It’s a Toyota Corolla Sport and it’s so brand spanking new. I miss the RAV 4 which Mr. M now drives, but that’s okay. I’m actually so blase about this new car I don’t even have a picture of it. Yep, I’m so excited. Can you feel it?
- My father died. And then the drama after his death began and it’s far from ending. There’s really not much I can say there since I haven’t begun mourning his passing at all, much less get involved with all the drama of land titles, valid marriages, divorces and annulments and all that. The only thing that I could come up with it yesterday, while telling Mr. M what was going on so far was that while I was so busy following all the rules of life, despite its consequences, my dad was so busy skirting everything else by paying everyone off, and now it’s biting all of us in the ass.
And I guess for now that’s it. So much for the half-yearly recap.
I’d probably be more upbeat if the prompt said, “half-yearly sale” – then that’s when you know I’m all there!
