Bad Blogger

I am a bad blogger. I haven’t made a post since last year! And even then the last post was me ranting about the amount of books I have piled in my To Be Read list. But my lack of blog posts doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy.

I am currently working on eight different books, plus at least five more that I just started mapping out in the past week or so. My problem being I have all these ideas, but no inspiration or drive to actually piece them together into anything coherent.

So while it has never stuck with me in the past, I have taken to writing everything down in my pretty notebook and folding the pages down in a method I learned from my dad.

Been working on a project for my dad, and slaving away in my classes. I’ve also been working with my family to get ready for moving day. Soon we will be packing up our whole house to move… a few roads over. If it wasn’t for my short trips to Facebook, I wouldn’t even know what day it is. So I’m going to try and pop on here more often, but if I am absent for long periods of time, you know I am neck deep into something. Happy (late) New Year!

Land of the Midnight Sun

In the land of the midnight sun
You are surrounded by eternal light.
Light that almost haunts you and makes it seem like you can do nothing.
You do nothing, for you can’t find anything to do, but sit and watch.
Watch the people with normal fulfilling lives get up and go.
Go to work, go to play, go and live.
Live with friends and family and while you’re watching you start to wonder,
Wonder if your move here was right.
Was it right to move away from all of your new found friends and life long ones?
Friends that had stuck by you through everything?
Everything you left behind you sit and wonder was it worth it?
Worth losing touch of everyone you cared about?
Everyone you cared about in the end will still love you when you go back.
Go back to visit or to stay they will be there for you till the very end.
The very end is far off. Spend the time you have making it joyous and remember,
Remember that very soon the sun must set in the land of the midnight sun.

If I could live anywhere…

I have never been real fond of living in America. Yes, it has it’s good points and beautiful landscapes but it just seems…drab to me. I would much rather be in another part of the world. Take Germany for instance, that beautiful feature image is just one of the many castles speckled throughout the country. How awesome would it be able to wake up near the Black forest and see gorgeous castles like that every day? Talk about awesome inspiration for book locations. I’m already getting a jump start and teaching myself German…bit of a rough going but getting there.

Japan has so much history, colorful cultures and crazy traditions; it would be a different experience day after day. They have some of the best horror movies and ghostly legends, I would be right at home. I of course would have to avoid some of the food, due to allergies, but living in Japan would be amazing.

I don’t know why, but I have always wanted to go to Russia as well. The major destination being the Winter Palace, but I also have a thing for the Russian accent. When I was younger I was fascinated by the Romanov family so I think that is where wanting to go to Russia comes in, but it definitely has an alluring atmosphere.

London, home of sophistication. I will admit I am an Anglophile, but who isn’t? As I mentioned with Russia, the British accent is just so appeasing and wonderful. Big Ben has always been a favorite attraction to me and again I don’t know why.I think I first fell in love with London when I watched 101 Dalmatians. The scenery in the cartoon was just so pretty and compared to where I lived, much better. Then of course I was obsessed with the Spice Girls, and Beatles. Britain in general has come out with some pretty good music, that eclipses some of the crap that Americans produce. Their TV shows are better as well. Yes I am talking about Doctor Who, and Torchwood. That means living in Cardiff, Wales is also a possibility for me as well.

Finally Ireland. My family on my mother’s side are Riley’s, so naturally I want to live in Ireland just to get closer to my ancestral roots. The Emerald Isle is just Heavenly and the ultimate destination if I could live anywhere in the world.

My childhood is just a mixture of places I want to live in for no reason other than they are not America.
