So as you might (not) have noticed, I’ve taken a wee break from my little internet kingdom, and let me tell you it wasn’t all out of laziness.
(Some of it might have been, but mostly not.)
October was a little strange for me. I started out feeling a little under the weather, with all the new fall allergies rolling in and everything. And that’s all fine and good, and I got through it.
We got a call from our apartment complex three weeks ago asking us when we were going to be turning in our keys. Because apparently they were expecting that? We had no idea what they were talking about.
Turns out, they decided to do a non-renewal on our lease, and somehow failed to notify us that we needed to be out at all, much less by a certain date. As you can imagine, this was a wonderful experience, and not stressful in the least.
It actually turned out well, because we got them to give us a really good deal on a bigger place that had been entirely remodeled and just was nicer than the place we were in. Still though, we had to pack and move all of our stuff within a week.
Which, if you’ve been lucky enough not to experience this, IS ALL KINDS OF HELL.
We still haven’t finished unpacking everything. Mostly because I got sick.
This time, though, it’s an entirely bullshit reason. I’m thinking that the stress of this whole situation (I don’t know if that can even cause this, but science also doesn’t really know what causes this so this is what I’ve decided did this to me) I got vertigo. For no reason. Just sitting on the couch, entirely still, I’d get dizzy or motion sick.
Sounds fun, right??
But I’m back now! I’ve got a bit of a backlog on book reviews, which is good because I’ve not had a whole lot of time to read lately (and I don’t know where my current read is at the moment), and I NEED to finish Stranger Things because I just really want to.
I’ve also decided to do NaNoWriMo this year because apparently I like to make things complicated for myself. But I’m loving my story idea, and am really curious to see how far I can get this year. I kind of tried last year, and didn’t get very far, but I also didn’t really make it a priority, and I think I’d gotten too in-my-head with the story I was working on. This time, I’ve got a new idea and I’ve actually made it a priority, so I’ve already got a better chance of making a dent in this challenge.
(And now I’ve told the internet I’m doing it so now I have to finish. If you’re also doing NaNo, we can be buddies! I’m Lizabeth648 over on the NaNo site. I’d love some writing buddies!)
What about you?
What did your October throw at you? Anything fun?
What do you have going on in November? Who else is beyond excited for Gilmore Girls??
Are you doing NaNo?
LETS TALK ABOUT ALL THE THINGS. 🙂
