My Brain Is Currently All Over The Place April 8, 2014

And by all over the place, I mean ALL over the place.

1) Okay, so remember how I told you that I was going to raise sponsors, and how much fun it would be.

….Yeahhhh, now I know why nobody ever gets into pageants. Darn $500.

2) PROM IS THIS WEEKEND! And I don’t have a jacket/sweater thingy to go with my dress yet…

3) DUDE, I’M ALMOST IN FREAKING COLLEGE WHERE HAS ALL THE TIME GONE!? I mean, I still have until next year…BUT STILL.

4) I keep forgetting I still need to get money for Girls Camp. For real.

5) STUPID STUPID FRENCH

6) This is the conversation I had with my teacher this morning. Work for word.

Teacher: Hello Kirsten. How can I help you today?
Me: Hi Mrs. Davis :D I wanted to talk to you about the 6.07 Assignment.
Teacher: Ok
Me: Okay, so, it says in the instructions that it needs to be 600-650 words long, but I think that that’s too long. If the point is to make this an online article, people won’t want to read something that’s that long. The original story is only, 450-ish words long, and newspaper stories that are online are generally shorter than the ones that are published in an actual newspaper
AND we’re still supposed to be deleting sentences. I know we’re supposed to add some too, but that’d still keep it at about 500 words.
Sooo yup. I think it should be shorter.
*are generally shorter than the ones that are published in an actual newspaper
Teacher: Hi Kirsten – please follow the directions. Part of the challenge of writing an online story is to keep the reader engaged by making it interesting. Do the best you can, but make sure you follow the directions.
Me: But the point is to make this as real and authentic as possible, right? It won’t be as real if the online article is longer than the print-out version. Shouldn’t it at least be the same length? I mean, take Wikipedia for example…that’s a condensed version of a bunch of different information from other stories and websites.
Teacher: I’m sorry you don’t agree with the lesson requirements, but if you want maximum points, you have to follow and meet them. Like I said, just do your best and try to make it as engaging and interesting as possible.

…Come on, tell me that wasn’t an amazing argument.

7) My own sisters don’t want me (or my other sister/their other older sister) at their skating rink party. WHERE IS THE LOVE/I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT I DID/ I DIDN’T EVEN DO ANYTHING YET D:

8) Stupid French…

9) I TOTALLY SHOULD’VE GOTTEN A 100% ON MY HISTORY PAPER. I got a 90, and that’s great and all…BUT STILL.

10) Dylan hasn’t emailed me back yet…

11) Josh hasn’t texted me back yet…

12) I’m running out of minutes on my phone, and I need to buy more, but COME ON PEOPLE I HAVE OTHER STUFF I NEED TO BUY TOO

13) Dex and Chazz haven’t emailed me back yet…

14) Google hasn’t had a picture thingy on its main page for forever D:

15) HOW COME EVERY TIME I TRY TO DO A NANOWRIMO THING, I FAIL D:

 

And that, ladies and gentleman, is my random list of woes that I thought of just now.

Back to your regularly scheduled program.

 

 

P.S. OH OH OH BUT IN GOOD NEWS, the guy I like sat next to me. And today’s his half birthday. And he probably doesn’t know it but THAT’S OKAY ‘CAUSE I STILL FELT SPECIAL DEEP INSIDE. Okay. I’m good now.

Camp NaNoWriMo (and how I’m kind of cheating, but not really) April 2, 2014

It’s that time of year again, guys. Time to bring out you pens/ pencils/ paper/ notebooks/ coffee/ tea/ water/ OJ/ lemonade/ typewriters/ laptops/ keyboards/ …I don’t know, gift cards? and START WRITING.

Again.

Seems like just a few months ago, I was trying, then deciding not too, then deciding too, then failing at the regular NaNoWriMo.

Oh sweet memories…

But in ACTUAL GOOD NEWS I GO-

Oh yeah…I didn’t explain the title yet. Okay, so I was SUPPOSED to start writing whatever I’m supposed to be writing yesterday, but my laptop charger broke, so then I could no longer charge my computer…so I couldn’t use it for a 2 days…

IT WAS TERRIBLE I TELL YOU. TERRIBLE.

But I survived. So I’m okay.

But anyways, I went on to check my account, and there were like, 30 camper messages from people saying hi. 45 hours after I said hi. Cabin-mates suck sometimes, you guys. I’m just saying. So THEN, I went on and put that I wrote 1,435 words today.

Now this is kind of a lie…but not really. I didn’t actually physically sit down and type up that many words and decided to dedicate it to NaNoWriMo. No, what I decided to do was edit a story that I had kinda sorta started a little bit, and see how far I got with it. So TECHNICALLY, since I had to do all the work and search for a grand total of 30 seconds for the document, that can count as my writing time. Besides, I’m going to go edit it some today anyways. And THAT counts as working.

…Right?

And besides, it’s not like I don’t have that many words and I totally lied…

Okay, moving on.

P.S. DON’T COMMENT AND MAKE ME FEEL GUILTY ABOUT THIS.

Okay, now for not rambling actual GOOD news.

I GOT ACCEPTED TO BE A STATE FINALIST TO COMPETE FOR MISS KANSAS TEEN THROUGH NATIONAL AMERICAN MISS OH MY GOSH I’M SO EXCITEDDDDDDDDDD OH MY GOSHHHHHHH!!!!!

Only un problemo, mi amigo’s (and no, I’m not taking spanish…I’m taking french. Don’t ask)…there’s a sponsor fee. And I need half of it ($240) by before the end of the month. So I have to like, call people. REAL PEOPLE. LIKE, REAL REAL LIVE PEOPLE.

HOW AM I GOING TO DO THIS?!

Haha, I’m just kidding…I’m actually really excited about it. Even the getting sponsors part. I mean, this is a pageant with a purpose. They don’t do the swimsuit modeling part, and you don’t even have to model at all if you don’t want too. You learn interviewing skills, you learn how to confidently walk and talk in front of a live audience with lots of people, you can practice your talent, and win awards for it, you do community service…it’s awesome. Getting the sponsors should be REALLY fun after I figure out what I’m supposed to say. If I can make it to state finals, I can talk to a general manager. I mean, they’re not going to like, bite me…right? They’ll just sit there and listen and look at the brochure and talk with me and tell me yes or no! I mean, I’m ALREADY a people person. It’s why I like downtown so much. And why I never ever EVER want to live on the farm. Or too far into the country. We could have a 2 million dollar mansion, but if it were too far away from civilization, I’d go rent a bungalow or something.

Okay, the mansion part miiight not be completely accurate…but you get the point.

In other OTHER good news, WE’RE DOING FOOD SCULPTING TONIGHT AHHH I’M SO EXCITEDDDDD!!!!

Wow, I get excited REALLY easily… But I guess that’s a good thing. I mean, cause when I get a boyfriend (AHAHAHAHHAHA THAT’S FUNNY! I mean…*ahem*, keep reading), he’ll always be happy cause I’ll just be happy to see him all the time!

But flowers are still good. Oooooh or chocolate. You can never EVER have enough of that.

Like, ever.

 

TODAY’S THE DAY (I get Cabin Mate people) March 25, 2014

GUYS I GOT MY FREAKING CABIN MATE PEOPLE I’M SO HAPPYYY AND EXCITEDDDD AND GAH I’M SO EXCITED!

GAH THIS MAKES ME EXCITED ALL OVER AGAIN

GAH THIS MAKES ME EXCITED ALL OVER AGAIN

DON'T THEY ALL JUST LOOK SO WONDERFUL?!

DON’T THEY ALL JUST LOOK SO WONDERFUL?!

I’m so excited. You guys have no idea.

I’M SO EXCITED OH MY GOSH.

Okay…now only 6 more days until it actually starts…

This is going to take forever, isn’t it?

 

why is it that no one thinks homeschoolers want homecoming too… November 12, 2013

Filed under: 2013,IT WOULD BE SNOWING,NaNoWriMo,NaNoWriMo goes bye-bye — pinkdoughnuts15 @ 11:15 am

Hello again fellow children!

So, as an update for the whole NaNoWriMo thing I’m working on, it’s…going. I mean, it’s fine and all, it’s just that I feel like I need to put a little something more in it…I just don’t exactly know what. But OH WELL, I’ll probably figure it out…I usually do.

But anyways, I have so much stuff going on this week, it’s ridiculous. I had an ortho appointment on Monday (we’re doing adjustments on Thursday…woohoo), I don’t thimk we have anything today, Wednesday we’ll be roasting marshmallow’s in the cold (WOO-HOO), Thursday is the adjustments, and Friday is girls night. And Saturday is this random lady’s wedding. And Sunday is Stake Conference. That we’re not even going to the Stake building for. So this should be an interesting week.

Oh, and we ended up not going to the tailgate party thing because my mom had, and I quote “A bad feeling about it”.

So yup. But we had chinese for lunch, so all was half forgiven.

 

yes I know…I half murdered this November 8, 2013

Filed under: 2013,come oooon weekend...,NaNoWriMo,NaNoWriMo goes bye-bye — pinkdoughnuts15 @ 10:10 am

Okay, so you know how I’ve been so excited about the whole NaNoWirMo and kept talking about how I was gonna do it and all?

I have decided to back out and not do it.

I know, I know. I’m such a disappointment.  BUT I have decided to do something else instead.

So you know those girls that are completely prom crazy? Not psycho-prom-crazy…just regular prom crazy. Well, I’m going to write a book about that. But through my own experience, so it won’t be so cliche. And that’ll take 155 more days, because that’s how long it is til prom.

Plus, I’m reading a book right now, and I don’t want to accidentally take something from that book…so yeah.

But at least I got inspired!

 

As my friends would say, LEZ DO DIS! WOOP WOOP November 6, 2013

Filed under: 2013,it's pouringgg,it's raininggg,NaNoWriMo — pinkdoughnuts15 @ 7:59 pm

So today I signed up for the NaNoWriMo Young Writer’s Program, and I did the word calculator to see what the ideal number of words I could write if I started writing today, and I finished on December 1st. This is the result I got.

nano

Apparently, I’m a really fast typer. And I can think pretty quickly about what to write about. Even if I’m not really writing about anything.

My only problem with the way they calculate it is that I spent 10 minutes typing a possible intro to my novel/story, and all of it got erased when I was finished…

And the four thousand words I wrote went down the drain.

Other than that, I’m pretty excited! I can’t wait to see how everybody does!

And yes, I know I spelled doughnuts way wrong….especially considering everybody spells it ‘donuts’ now.

 

NaNoWriMo

Filed under: 2013,NaNoWriMo — pinkdoughnuts15 @ 11:12 am

So in honor of NaNoWriMo (which, if you haven’t heard of all ready, is an awesome idea and you should look it up. I’d tell you myself, but I don’t trust myself to explain things very well. part of the reason i made a blog), I’ve been thinking about actually WRITING something. Like, a novel. Like your supposed to be writing anyways.

SO, starting tomorrow, I shall start writing something. I might actually end up doing it today…but hey, all that matters is your writing, right?
