I Didn't Crash and I Also Didn't Procrastinate

GUESS WHAT??? I DROVE TODAY!! AND I DIDN'T CRASH! Lol! I was so happy! Not with a driving instructor or anything big like that, just around the neighborhood where the New House is. At first, it was a little scary as usual, but it got easier more quickly than usual. I've driven before, but only for like three minutes at a time. Just down the road or something. This time, I drove ALL OVER the new neighborhood when we went to see the House.

Oh my gosh, the House is finished! All that's left is for the people to come and clean up the floor and counters and vacuum and stuff. It's beautiful! Wow! And it was really windy today, which is, like, my favorite! (I absolutley LOVE wind.) The landscaping is so beautiful, and the carpet is in. I don't know how or why, but the carpet made my room look bigger...My room with BLUE WALLS of course. Lol! Creativity to the max!!

Today I tried not to procrastinate, and things went...wow. A lot faster than usual. I finished much earlier when I wasn't stopping to stare at my story or check my empty inbox for the millionth time :) Not that I usually do that or anything...........hehe :) I think staying on top of things will be a little easier now that I've seen for myself how big of a difference it makes.

Oh, and I finally figured out who this OTHER girl in my dance class reminds me of. Can you guess? Yup. (Or maybe no. What did you think it was?) Another book character. There's a girl in my dance class named Brooke that looks exactly like Paige Walt from Creepy Story. Acts like her sort of; not quite. But she looks almost just like her, and she reminds me of her. I'll have to post a picture of her if possible....which it probably isn't. Still. I'll try. And I'll try to get one of McKinna, too. Gosh, McKinna scares me sometimes. She's just exactly like Ember Smokeman....

Well, other than my driving and the fact that the House is so awesome I can hardly stand it, not a lot is goin' on. But still, that's pretty good for me. Driving, moving, not procrastinating, meeting my own characters. The worlds is a pretty crazy place after all. Don't miss it. :)

P.S. I still haven't heard back from the Shurtugal.com people. I don't know if you remember, I applied for a job as a columnist for them. They haven't responded...Do you think they're still considering, or should I give up?

cool! =) I never drove

hmm... post pictures of the house, please ^_^

about the girl... wow. it's strange enough to find one character in your dance class! weird (but cool)

about the website... I can't tell, but maybe you should email them asking if they haven't decided yet, or if they already chose someone else

It's so much fun!! Especially for a control freak like me :)

I'll try. I'll get my litte sister who's a computer genuis to help me post pictures of the house.

I know!! It's so crazy! It's like my books are aliiiiiiive! Haha! It is really weird though...

Okay, I might try that. I just don't want to bug them...Lol! I'll try though.

Kendra Logan said...

Lol, thanks!

Well if you really enjoy writing on the subject, and think you can do a decent job there...don't give up. Let them know you are capable...it might just take a while.

Doesn't mean you shouldn't apply other places in the meantime.

Kendra Logan said...

Okay, good advice. Do you think I ought to email them again or just wait and see? I can't decide...I don't want to annoy them so that they're like, "Oh, not her! Don't pick THAT girl!" Lol!

Cool! Was it in the van....or did you say that? When do you take the driving part of the drivers ed test thingy....

Like I've told you my dad forced me to drive the trucks and I wasn't as excited as you.

Hey maybe I shouldn't procrastinate too! I could get SO much done!


Hold on Kendra how come you didn't tell me about the column thing??????? *Glares*
I want to know more.
Any way how can they rufuse a great writer like you? :P
We'll talk about this later Kendra >? ( Just kidding)

Kʀɛѵɑɳ said...

even if not there, you'll sure get a position somewhere you like, with your skills
I'm totally a night owl ^_^

Kendra Logan said...

Thanks, I hope so...I'd really love to write for Shurtugal...

Me, too. Especially if it's a choice between that and a morning person. I'm definitely NOT a morning person, lol!

Kʀɛѵɑɳ said...

=) me neither

Kendra Logan said...

Lol, I drove again today!! :)

Kʀɛѵɑɳ said...

^^ good for you. I don't know if I'll enjoy driving that much though

Kendra Logan said...

It's really a lot of fun. Not even that hard. It just takes me a while to get used to how hard I have to push the brake and the gas and stuff. I think it's so much fun! Lol!

Kʀɛѵɑɳ said...

^_^ maybe. I hope I find it fun, or else it'll just be another common and boring thing in my life

Kʀɛѵɑɳ said...

I'm not gonna start learning it for 3 years, though, so no hurry ^^"

omg... I noticed now that today is valentine's day X]
happy valentine's day! (I don't know how much importance you give to this day in the us, but here we aren't really affected by it)

Kendra Logan said...

Thanks! You too! Yeah, it's a pretty big deal here. No parades or anything :) but we still celebrate it.
