Random & Random & Random & My Brain Is Tired

Peacock-Printed Napkin

Hey all! I’m getting really bad about posting, which is terrible… I need a new hobby. Currently my life is pretty boring, so the blog is also… boring.

Anyway, this post is about random things, and I’ve decided that I’m going to sort the randoms into categories. Enjoy!

(Also, a disclaimer: I’d provide an explanation here, but I can’t think of one. So be warned, my writing right now is very scatter-brained.)

On School Being Out

The fact is now just hitting me that I’ve graduated high school. It’s so weird… I will probably never see most of my former classmates ever again, and I guess I’m okay with that in some instances but… I’m really going to miss some of them. Definitely didn’t think about that…

The picture above is a napkin I decided to take a picture of on the last day of school. I just thought it was pretty.

I always feel bittersweet about endings like this– I tell myself that I’m so ready to move on until the actual event happens, and then it hits me. I’m floating in an emotional cloud right now, just floating around, pretty much waiting for life to pick up again right where it ended.

Wow I sound like a loon. Sorry about that, I’m kind of daydrifty-dreamy right now. Which, in fact, leads me to…

On Writing I: Stuff’s Looking Good

So right now the novel’s looking good. My sister’s helping me reach my word count goals, and so far I’m enjoying my own story, which is a good sign. That’s all I’ll say about it, lest I jinx it…

 On Writing II: The Myers-Briggs Personality Test

A couple months ago my teacher had my class take a Myers-Briggs Personality Test online, and I kind of forgot about it until a couple of days ago. That’s when I started really looking into it, and I’ve found it to be really interesting. I’ve always liked these kinds of personality tests where you can find out more about yourself, but I’ve also found that this test has become very helpful in sorting out my characters’ personalities in my writing.

If you’re bored, or your looking for some character inspiration, you might want to look into this. Or, you know, take the test. I took it at HumanMetrics.

Apparently I’m an INTJ >:) I’ve learned a lot about myself in the process, one of which I think I probably already knew but never recognized… I go through “phases” of hobbies, which makes total sense. I never stick to one thing for very long, which really kind of bothers me, but oh well.

And that I am apparently an evil unicorn, ha.

(There are some really funny images out there related to personality types, just sayin’.)

TV Right Now

I thought it would be worth mentioning, because, I don’t know, but at this very moment I’m watching Dark Matters: Twisted but True on the Science Channel. It’s really interesting, and isn’t actually as dark as I thought it would be. The show is about strange events in science– the events are dramatized, but I find the way the setting is presented to be very nicely done.

Well, that’s about it. Sorry I can’t be more scintillating right now. I’m just… tired.
