Toooo hot

The last week or so has been a crazy haze of end-of-summerness. School starts on Wednesday, and this time our last hurrah will be seeing Inception in D-BOX tomorrow. Omg.

I spent last week with my family and we went to Reno for the weekend. If you've never been to Reno, it's like Las Vegas but really tiny and somehow much, much trashier. It was filled with homeless people and it was extremely hot and windy at the same time, and half of the casinos are closed/abandoned. It was fun. It was also my first time being of age in a casino, so that was an experience. I played video poker and slots and the cocktails were awesome but the money-losing, not so much. I did enjoy hanging out in the arcade in the middle of the night (we were at a Circus Circus), and I won a thousand tickets in less than 20 minutes and walked away with a big bag of stuffed dice and crap. Who's the loser now, eh???

On a very nerdy note, my fic got a hundred favorites on ff.net! Even despite the fact that the formatting on ff.net baffles me and I've not at all mastered it.
If you went back and told my 13-year-old self that someday I would be writing stories for fun and putting them up for strangers to read, I would have scissor-kicked you right in the face.

I'm also finally getting a chance to take an actual life-drawing class. I feel kind of intimidated cause I'll be around real art students, but I just really want to learn. I may even be annoying and post some of the drawings. You have been warned.

DFH GKSTHI SRU INCEPTION WAS TOTALLY AWESOME. that d-box video was so intense XD

summer stared off really strong here, like everyone's grass was burnt out by the first week of july, and now it's been on and off gray for the past week, or so, i'm not rly sure, time's exaggerated for me during summer.

It was filled with homeless people and it was extremely hot and windy at the same time, and half of the casinos are closed/abandoned. It was fun. XDDDDDDDDD after ALL THAT "It was fun." that sounds like one awesome vacation =D

you haz an ff net? so do i =D! i used to be much more active on there, but then i found livejournal and realized that you could REALLY format stuff, post links, and you could actually put in section breaks and they wouldn't magically disappear after you posted your entry. B|. the fact that you can't link anything is what really annoys me. idk, last time i was on was a few months ago, maybe they've changed it.

LOLOLOLOLOLOL that's exactly what my 13 year old self was planning on doing XD.

OSNAP that sounds awesome 8D. that wouldn't be annoying, it would be very welcome spam 8D /is a spam post/

I know!! I'm so excited, it's ridiculous!

I'd had an account on ff.net for like 8 years, but I didn't post anything on it until Strange Powers. The formatting and interface really suck balls, but I do like the stats information and stuff.

It's good that you had that goal cause you've probably had a lot more practice! I hated writing when I was younger. I just never thought I'd be decent at it. I feel like I can express myself a lot better now, though.
