Another year down.. 400 million to go.

Well here we are again. A year later from where I started. If you remember (if you’ve followed me that long) you remember that I started with a post stating my new year’s resolutions. Well here they were:
1.The first is to Love more. When I was younger loving everyone wasn't that hard, now that i'm older it's become a little more difficult. This year I want to learn to love everyone equally.
2. Become my own person. I thought last year I had myself all figured out, only to be hit with the fact that I was incredibly far off track. I will find myself this year through trial and error just like I have all my life. With this I'm going to learn all that I can and pick up new hobbies. I want to be educated in many different things and learn more. College will be a great experience for me and I will get to learn oh so very much. In the end I will be doing what I love [hopefully].
3. This third one is a little farfetched but it's a resolution. Get my book published. I've never been more passionate about anything in my life. This book has totally encompassed me and my whole life. Everything I do revolves around my writing. Stories are constantly circulating through my mind. I look around me and feed off of everything. If you truly know me you know how dedicated to writing I am. I sleep, breath, and eat writing. I live for my books and I live for stories. My book Silver Lining is the name of it [Yes I finally chose one] It's my most prized possession. Of course not many people will enjoy it due to it's controversial matter [Gay Superhero] I am wonderfully proud of what I have accomplished. I am so proud and people have been so receptive of it that I have started a sequel. ANYWAYS! Getting it published would be a dream come true.. Become and rich and famous wouldn't be so bad either. ;].
4. This is probably the resolution I will work the hardest for. Become more active in the fight for Gay Rights. I know that many people don't feel that this is an important resolution. People [especially in Idaho] don't believe that gays should have rights at all. I don't believe that way at all. I believe that humans should all be created equal no matter what. Whether it's their race, religion, or sexual orientation. The minute I see people being discriminated against I get rather angry. My best friends are gay most of my friends are gay actually and I want to fight for their rights with all my heart. So I am going to dive head first right into the activism of Gay rights. I hope that some of you realize that great cause this is and join me.


So let’s start with number 1, love more. I believe that I was able to accomplish that. Sure I wasn’t perfect in it, but I really made an effort. It really helped in my happiness and I gained a lot of insight this year on all the many people surrounding me constantly. I’m glad I made this a resolution.
2. Become my own person. Oh boy did I do this. I finally feel like KDwan. I’m pretty stoked about everything that is going on in life right now. I started new hobbies, started a bunch of new things. I really branched out and tried to see myself from someone else’s shoes and change myself. I believe that I did really well with that.
3. Get the book published.. hehe. Well this didn’t turn out the way I exactly wanted it too, and truthfully I’m glad. There was still a lot of work that the book needed and still right now there’s more than can be done. I rewrote the book and am currently rewriting it once more. I love this book though, I could work on it forever and never think it’s perfect, but I’m really going to try to get an agent this next upcoming year, so yeah, I’m not too worried.
4. Be more active in Gay rights. Oh I did this. . I really worked hard to make known what I believe. So Yeah, totally did this.

So basically I didn’t actually do too badly this last year. There was only one resolution that I wasn’t able to accomplish. I was a little crazy for thinking it could get published last year. Anyways, I’m sure it’s time for some new resolutions, so tonight while I’m watching the ball drop I will think of some, and tomorrow I will post the list for you.
I love you guys more than anything, and I’m very glad that I have all of you.
Remember who you are, and what you stand for.
-Love KD

Thanks.

It's amazing the way your life never seems to go the way you thought it would. I keep seeing people--people from my past-- and they keep reminding me of who I was. They also show the person that I am right now. I'll tell you now that there are many things that I would love to change about myself.. and there's a lot that I would like to change from my past, but I don't regret any of it. Sure times were never the easiest and I went through some incredibly difficult times. I've loved and I've lost. I've been through pain that seemed unimaginable. Now I find myself somewhere where i'm supposed to be. I've always looked at people around me and wanted to be just like them. Now I see that I have become those people. Sometimes people say that being like others is bad.. and yes I'm one of those that believe that. but if you want to be like someone who has goals and knows exactly where they're going--then that is not bad. I don't really know what my mood is really.. it's just sort of reflective. I'm just proud of what i've done in my life and the people i've met. I wouldn't forget a face i've seen. I'm also just grateful for everything that you all continue to do for me. It's amazing to have such awesome people all around me all the time. :D. I love you guys..
Remember who you are and what you stand for.. and always.. May the Force be with you!

Book Idea

Have you ever wanted to write a book but you know you aren't good with grammar or things like that? What if I told you that I have the solution.. let me do the work and let you come up with the fabulous ideas.. here's how it's going to be done..

Recently I have gotten this idea about a book. I've been watching this show called I <3 vampires. it's s show where people get to comment and they decide what happens in the next show. I want to take this same idea and incorporate it into a book. At the beginning of the week I will ask a question like.. if you were the main character of a book what would your name be. You guys will give me votes or comments and I will take in those comments and start a chapter with it. For the first few weeks i'll have to start and ask a lot of questions about plot and such but once it's rolling we'll be getting a book going. I think this could be really fun and really great and I will keep a running list of ideas for the book and names of people who give me ideas. that way if this book ends up being awesome we'll go ahead and try and get it published and you will all be given credit for the writing of the book.. you will be published authors. anyways.. I love you guys.. I hope this idea can work if you're up for it! I appreciate all the help and support you're giving to me already. I love you.

Hey guess who just got mobile blogging and twitter.. I so totally love the internet when im bored

Plus..

Hey I almost forgot I took a picture of myself in my new room. You can see how tired and sick I look.. yaaay!




Cute? Oh totally.. I look completely awful. But there's me.. there's my room.. that's my roommates bed behind me. haha.

Love you guys!

Moving..

On Friday I started my long awaited journey of moving. Lets begin on the 15th. It was a nice last day. I woke up not feeling all too well. I went through most of the day pretty good. Jake needed a ride so he could go to baptisms. Being a nice sister I told him I would take him. We met up at the church building and talked to the people there. I told them all about my schooling and such. They were rather excited. As we spilt up and moved to our cars jake hopped into mine. As I started the car I realized that it no longer ran. My car was now dead in the middle of the church. Jake had to run and find another ride before everyone left. I called my dad and he came and tried it out. After realizing that it was not going to work because it wouldn't idle we carefully drove it to the car shop. They said they'd fix it.

We drove home and continued our day. My stomach wasn't feeling all to great so I decided not to eat dinner. (Which was a very wise choice). A few hours passed and I realized I had jumped straight into the stomach flu. The rest of the night was filled with unpleasant memories.

Finally friday rolled around. Only two hours of sleep fueled my exhausted body. With no second car we piled everything into the van and headed out. We didn't realize what we had gotten into. When we started we had no idea where we were going. so we walked around and almost got me living in a boys dorm (SCHYEA!)it didn't work out.
We eventually realized we sign in exactly where we started.. my dorm. So we get the kay and such and start hauling things up. I brought a lot of bags. haha. Surprisingly I didn' take up a lot of room. :S. So we packed and packed then walked around finding the stuff I needed to do. I joined this thing called Get connected. IT's like a big weekend seminar where they introduce you to the school and what not. Anyways, we signed me up for that and found a bowling alley! yay. We thought we needed to get a wireless card. we thought wrong.. I'M ON THE INTERNET WITH NO EXTRA FEE! yay. haha. I love free wifi. Did I mention that my bed is above my desk.. scary. It's really hard to put sheets on them too. haha.

So then I met my Iteam they're dang sweet. Sometimes i'm the shyest person ever.. haha. it's okay because once they break me out of my shell they want to put me back.

There was a meeting, there was a nother meeting, there was walking, there was more walking. anyways that was day one. I went home that night because there was no one in my dorm and I still felt all sorts of bad.
I spent the night watching Will and Grace with my mom.. (I think there's someone banging on my wall.. wtf mate.. or maybe my bed is going to explode.)

So saturday morning I wake up early and pack everything into my now fixed car. I drove with my mom and we packed everything away. My new roommate Jessica also moved in. She sleeps in my room. :D. haha. I win the roommate! haha. Jk. I think she's making dinner.. Yum I want some. I'm going to have fried rice.. Okay get back on topic. I moved in and realized I forgot my contacts case.. i'm stupid leave me alone I already know. So we went and bought one and then it was time to say good bye to my parents. :'(. Every year I go to girls camp I always hated leaving my family. I still do. I'd rather live in my parents basement my whole life, buuuut! It's nice knowing I can talk to them through internets and such.. unlike girls camp.

After they left I went to another meeting then got a free lunch from the school and ate with Brandon Queen cause he's in my Igroup. We're buddies. Then we had another meeting.. are you getting this yet? there are a lot of meetings. Then we had a service project. We put hygien kits together. It was quite fun. I went home after that and have been sitting here all day. It's pretty dang boring. There needs to be a park by me or something.. I might go out and find something to do. I'm super bored.

At nine there's a talent show. I was going to try out for it but it's clear across campus and there isn't parking where there is so I would've had to walk with my guitar across campus.. Excuses for just being scared.. I think so. haha. I've never performed alone in my life.. I'll have to start with smaller crowds. Sound good? My feet and hands are cold which is weird cause my room is fudgin hot.

Anyways that's been moving. It's been rather eventful and quite fun. I think i'll like it here in the burg. i'll miss my quartney cook cause she won't be here, but.. that's okay. i love her still. So quartney if you ever read this.. I LOVE YOU and I MISS YOU! haha.

I guess I could've written while I was bored.. haha. idk.. I feel awkward having someone in the same room as me. Weird? I think so. haha. well I love you guys. I hope you're enjoying your lives as much as I am.. Oh and like a major PS don't get that dang 24 hour stomach thing going around.. not good.. not good at all.

I love you guys, keep on living.

Bohemian Rhapsody

I've had this idea about creating a musical with only QUEEN music.. so i've started that! haha. I don't own rights to the music or anything.. This is just kind of fun. Maybe if I actually become serious about it then it could possibly happen.. haha. we'll see. I love the idea.

INTRODUCTION:

Blake, Duff, and Frank Ferguson are brothers. They’ve been separated by careers and lifestyles. The three of them share one loving mother, a mother that they continue to talk to.
Blake (about 18) is a young boy who is madly in love with his girlfriend. When she breaks up with him he kills himself. That is the beginning of the play. Throughout he is mentioned. As the youngest the two brothers feel a deep connection with him.
Duff (about 22) is the middle brother. His homosexual and drug lifestyle has put him in New York City. There he has tried to start his music which is his life. A dream is built up inside of his head and he will do anything for it, even sell his body. Now a hustler on the New York he finds himself in a hopeless situation.
Frank (about 26) is the oldest and most mature of the brothers. He is the only one who is married. He is a professional bike racer (like Lance Armstrong.) For the past few months he and his wife have been having marital issues. One night when he walks in on her cheating he goes out and does the same. That one night stand leads Frank to contracting AIDs. At the start of the play is when he is first told.




BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
ACT 1
Scene 1: The Beginning
The curtains open to a dark stage. Three different scenes open up. They’re spread equally across the stage.
Stage left is a small doctor’s office. There’s the doctor’s bed and a cabinet. Posters about AIDs prevention are on the wall. A single man sits on the bed (Frank.) There’s a door leading to off stage Left.
Center stage is a small wall. It’s just a few dark bricks or a dark wall. One man (Duff) is sitting on the ground. A syringe lies next to him.
Stage right is a small office. A desk covered with papers and a few books surround the wooden object. One man (Blake) is in the center. His light is dimmed more than the other two and he’s in either sepia or black and white. He is writing a letter to his mother. The last letter to his mother.
Far stage right there’s a small band set up; Bass, Drummer, Rhythm Guitar, Guitar, and Piano. They stay on the stage the whole time. They are the narrators of the play. The leads of the play can interact with the band. The one who does the most is Duff. He and the Lead Guitarist get along quite well.
The band is cast just as much as the actors.

The lights slowly come up on the three men. When there’s a solo, the other two are singing harmonies and background.

DUFF, FRANK, BLAKE:
Is this the real life?
Is this just Fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.
Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see.

BLAKE:
I’m just a poor boy.
I need no sympathy.
Because I’m easy come easy go.
DUFF:
Little High

FRANK:
Little Low

ALL THREE:
Anyway the wind blows, doesn’t really matter to me.

BLAKE:
To me.

FRANK:
Mama just killed a man.
Put a gun against his head
pulled my trigger, now he's dead.
Mama, life has just begun
but now I've gone and thrown it all away.

BLAKE:
Mama, ooh
didn’t mean to make you cry.
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

FRANK:
Too late, my time has come

DUFF:
Sends shivers down my spine.
Body's aching all the time.

BLAKE:
Goodbye, everybody
I've got to go.
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth


FRANK:
Mama, ooh
I don't want to die.

DUFF:
Sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

[GUITAR SOLO]
(After the guitar solo [small piano solo] a small group comes on the stage, stage left. They are a rough bunch about four guys. The only one who notices is DUFF. He becomes uncomfortable as he sees the men. He stands and starts to look for a way out.
FRANK and BLAKE are both sitting in their own situations reflecting on the outcome while this tango goes on with DUFF.)

DUFF:
I see a little silhouette of a man.

GROUP OF MEN:
[They are looking for a good time.]
Scaramouch, Scaramouch, will you do the Fandango?

DUFF:
Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very, frightening me.

[A small group of cops come out from stage right. They notice this strange little encounter happening and start walking over to them.]

COPS:
Galileo

MEN:
Galileo

COPS:
Galileo

MEN:
Galileo

COPS AND MEN:
Galileo Figaro.

DUFF:
Magnifico.
[He tries to defend himself from the COPS and MEN]
I'm just a poor boy nobody loves me.

COPS AND MEN:
He's just a poor boy from a poor family.
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.

[The leader from the group of MEN and COPS grabs onto DUFF]

DUFF:
Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?

MEN:
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go

COPS:
Let him go

MEN:
Bismillah! We will not let you go

COPS:
Let him go

MEN:
Bismillah! We will not let you go

DUFF:
Let me go

MEN:
(Will not let you go)

DUFF:
Let me go


MEN AND COPS:
(Will not let you go)
(Never, never, never, never)

DUFF:
Let me go, o, o, o, o

MEN AND COPS:
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
(Oh mama mia, mama mia)

DUFF: [fed up]
Mama Mia, let me go.

[DUFF realized that the COPS and MEN are both become occupied with each other instead of him. After this last line both of the leaders let go of DUFF.]

Beelzebub has the devil put aside for me, for me, for me!


[GUITAR SOLO]

(The COPS, MEN, AND BAND start to head bang leaving everyone completely out of the picture. DUFF runs off behind BLAKE’S wall. DUFF’S wall is taken out by the COPS and THE MEN and replaced with a bust station window. A woman stands in the window waiting for a new customer.
As the guitar solo is also going BLAKE and FRANK both stand up. A doctor comes in with a nurse for FRANK. FRANK also stands.
BLAKE is obviously frustrated and he starts smashing books and papers off of the desk. He gets everything off besides his one suicide letter.)



FRANK:
So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
[He is yelling at the doctor]


BLAKE:
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?

[He’s still standing yelling at the note]

Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby

DUFF:
[He runs from off stage.]
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here!

[DUFF is given a ticket and again he runs off of the stage. The counter wall is then replaced with a small bus bench during the guitar solo]

[GUITAR SOLO]

(The doctor and nurse leave FRANK he sits back down, defeated. BLAKE also sits back down and continues to write the letter.)

ALL THREE:
Ooh Yeah!

BLAKE:
[He writes the words he’s singing on the paper]
Nothing really matters.
anyone can see

FRANK:
Nothing really matters.

DUFF:
Nothing really matters.
[BLAKE finishes the letter and puts it in an envelope and sets it on his desk.]

BLAKE:
To me…

[During the small piano solo BLAKE’s light is slowly shut off. The other two stay on, on their situations.]

ALL THREE:
[Quietly]
Any way the wind blows...

[The song slowly ends. At the “gong” portion of the song when it slowly dies down there’s a snap of a gun. That’s when DUFF and FRANK’s lights are slowly turned off.]

Don Johnson

This is the story of Don Johnson.. I hope you like it.. (This really happened to my brother and I.. Just so you know.)


This is starting in the middle of one of my papers..



My parents decided to go to the store and pick up a few things that we needed. My little brother Jake and I decided that we wanted to go sit in the hot tub. When our parents left we grabbed some towels from the front desk and made our way down the hall to the pool. We stepped into the loud room to see that there weren’t that many people in the pool or hot tub. We put our towels on a table over the room key that our parents loaned out to us. There were two older men sitting in the hot tub as Jake and I got into the warm water. Jake and I talked and the

older men sat on the ledge of the warm hot tub and they dipped their feet in. Jake and I talked about the long trip and laughed at all the fun we’d already been happening. One of the older men got up and left. Jake and I didn’t think anything about it. The thing you need to know about me and Jake is that we look very much alike; people are constantly asking us if we are twins. Well this guy turned to us and he spoke quietly, “Don’t worry I’ll be leaving soon so that you two love birds can have the hot tub all to yourselves.”
Jake and I kind of giggled; I thought it was amazing that he didn’t realize the resemblance. I answered the man politely, “Don’t worry about it he’s actually my little brother. You can stay as long as you’d like.”
Jake and I continued talking, but this old man kept looking at us we both got a creepy feeling and looked over to the old man who was staring at us. Jake and I looked at each other before he spoke again, “Well, you should know who I am.” The man boasted proudly.
I’d never actually seen him in my whole entire life, but he seemed pretty full of himself, so I asked, “Should I? Who are you then?”
He looked at us and puffed out his chest, “My name is Don Johnson and I’m a writer.”
My brother and I looked at him as if he was crazy. I continued to be polite and conversed with him, “Really,” I said excitedly. “I love writing; I hope to someday become an author.”
He looked at me like I was crazy and he said, “You’re going into a very unhappy profession full of a lot of failure.”

I proceeded to tell him that I was just in it for fun. Being an author isn’t my main goal. He seemed to understand this. At this time a little girl came into the hot tub and was kind of swimming around, so I turned my attention back to my brother who gave me a scared type of look. The man convinced the little girl to leave and she left with her parents and went back to her room. With a lurch of his large body and a giant tidal wave almost covering our heads, Don Johnson was sitting in the hot tub with us. He again looked at us strange and said, “I have something to tell you, and I’d actually like to see what you have to say about it.” He got this stupid grin on his face as if he was looking for someone to fight him and he said, “I’m gay.”
Well he had picked the wrong people to look for a fight with; I turned to him and said, “Oh, that’s cool. My best friend is actually gay, and most of my friends are also.”
He looked at me like I was crazy, but he changed the subject very quickly. He looked at my little brother and asked him, “Do you write at all?” My brother answered with a no, so the man asked if he read.
My brother answered with a full answer this time, he said “Yes, my favorite kinds of books are from the War Hammer series.” They are a series of books written about a video game, I believe. He read them the whole time we were on our trip.
“Series, that’s spelled s-i-r-i-o-u-s.” Don Johnson again spoke as if he knew all.
I laughed inside, that’s not how you spell it. I looked at my brother again. Jake is just about deaf in one ear and can’t hear well out of the other, with the noise of the hot tub and a few other people splashing around in the pool, he couldn’t hear the man. So he turned his head
toward Don Johnson and he asked for him to repeat himself. Don did this but leaned closer into my brother. They were now inches apart from each other and I was trying hard not to laugh. Don repeated again, as serious as he was the first time, “Series, that’s spelled s-i-r-i-o-u-s.”
Jake leaned back and looked at me. He and I both have these looks that we give each other to know what the other is saying instead of actually saying it; I gave my brother a ‘what the heck is wrong with this crazy guy’ look. He knew exactly what I was saying, but Don didn’t. He said rudely to me, “That’s what I hate about women.” Oh great, I thought to myself. I opened my eyes and gave him my full attention so he would start the conversation. “I hate when women look at men like they are stupid.” I looked at Jake again, “I just hate that.” Don continued.
My brother knew I wasn’t looking at him like he was stupid. I let the man ramble on and I scooted closer to my brother for safety. Even though he’s young, he’s big and could beat someone if he had to. Don Johnson continued to do what he had to do, and then he looked at us one more time. This time I just stared back at him, “I think it’s time for me to go.”Don Johnson finally spoke the words we were waiting to hear.
“AT LAST” I shouted in my mind! This guy was nuts and I have never felt more awkward in my life. He stood up and said to us, “You two should hug, and make everything better again.” There’s nothing like putting a cherry on top of an awkward, tense filled sundae. The man stood up and walked out of the hot tub, that’s when Jake and I noticed his very inebriated state; he walked back and forth and almost fell over a few times. He walked over to the table where Jake and I had put our towels. He grabbed Jakes towel from the pile and began to rub himself down.

I leaned over to Jake and said, “That’s your towel.” He sighed and leaned his head against the edge of the tub, poor Jake. Don took the towel, and with him went his two older sons who were splashing each other in the pool. As he was leaving he almost fell back into the hot tub, but recovered only to stop inches from running face first into the wall. With the help of his sons, they got him out of the room. When the pool room’s door shut and Don was gone Jake and I laughed and almost cried because of the hilariousness of the situation. Ever since then whenever Jake and I are out in public we search for Don Johnson and hope that someday our paths will fatefully cross again.

Booger.

Right now I am sitting upstairs watching my niece and nephew, Addison and Carsten. They're super cute. anyways they've been here all day. Which is.. idk. Don't get me started on that.
Anyways! VV (<< means downward VV.. get it?) anyways. The post from below about my hero X. that book is going very well. It may even tie in to my previous books in the Silver Lining Trilogy. Like it already does.. but I mean Shiloh and Rylan will probably be in this book also.
Again I love the names in this book. I think that's my favorite part of a story is naming all the characters and watching them evolve. It's totally aweome.
Today I was watching some show where people get in fights over facebook then meet up and kill each other. Totally sounds like something I want to do. I'm so sick of hearing about this crap. You can't blame Facebook. If you want to blame anything blame the kids' parents. Obviously there are problems at home that make them think that violence and bullying is alright.
so if you think Facebook causes violence I can prove to you that it doesn't.. Look at me.. I don't talk rude to people over the internet then go and shoot them. why? because i'm a civilized human being. :S.
anyways. idk.
I hope you guys are having a good day. I'm totally enjoying the weather.. I know no one likes it.. but I sure do.
Anyways i'm getting in trouble for calling Carsten booger so I better go.
I love you guys!

<3 Katie Wan.

XXX

I've started a new book. It's called Hero X. It's pretty freaking sweet. Want to see the picture i'm using for a cover type thing? I bet you do!



Pretty sweet, huh? haha. Anyways remember my books from the Silver Lining series. Anyways in the third book (Which hasn't been finished, but i'm telling you about it anyways) Other Heroes come from different worlds. So this book takes place on one of those worlds. haha. Crazy huh?
But anyways. It's pretty sweet. There's a dragon in this one. Dragon's are super sweet. Maybe there will be a sword.. Dragons and a sword. You know when I type sword I have to say it with the w in it.. haha. I'm super cool.
Well, that's what's been going down.
I started recording some songs yesterday. I hope to get an album out before I leave. :S Hopefully it can happen.
idk.
But anyways I love you guys!

Talking 'Bout My Generation

I've been thinking lately. I've been watching these musicians on youtube. It amazes me what they're determined to do. I think, they're so young and it's such a wonderful thing. Youth is something that should be used for good. These people want to achieve their dreams. They want to live the life they've always wanted.
Then I thought. I'm one of those poeple. I'm part of the generation now that's striving for their dream. At times it may seem dumb and not worth it. But right now this is my life. My dream; writing. I watch musicians and think how cool they are. But i'm sure they could watch me and think how cool I am. to be doing something I love for the rest of my life.. that would be wonderful.
To change someone's mind with my books. To touch the heart of at least one person. It would mean the world to me. I want to inspire a nation. I want to change the way people look at the world. Perhaps thats what we all want. but do we all actually strive for it?
I want to be able to say I changed someone's view. I want to hear that i'm someone's hero. I dont' do any of this for money. I don't do it for fame. Of course both of things are an added bonus. I do this for you.. I do this for the world out there that isn't quite right.
Someday i'll change the world. I know it now.

You'll see..

GRRR

You can start judging me when you've been sick most of your life. I'm sick of people thinking i'm just whining because i'm sick. but listen i've never ever ever ever felt 100 percent my whole entire life. Constantly there is something wrong with me. Right now is probably one of the worst things that has come over me. I CAN'T BREATH! If you've never had that then you have no right to judge my mood or my attitude. Trust me i'm holding a lot of what i'm feeling inside. I can almost promise if anyone switched places with me for one day then perhaps they'd be like.. oh wow that really sucks.
It's not that i can't breath.. It's a whole lot more than that. there's no way I would ever be able to explain exaclty what's going on. You just have to be me. You have to be on the meds i'm taking. you have to feel like you're going to throw up almost every five minutes.
I'm just.. idk. I'm freeeeeaking pissed off beyond idk.. Everyone's getting all mad because i'm getting snippy.. but listen I don't sleep well at night.. I don't sleep well during the day.. I can't breath out my nose or my lungs. I feel like throwing up. My head is pounding with great pain. I can barely keep my eyes open from exhaustion.
Not to mention school is stressing me out. I'm just so sick of this all! you have no idea! GAAAAH!
Anyways this was a rant because i'm tired of people just shoving me around. I'M FREAKING SICK DEAL WITH IT!
I'm not even that mad yet.. I probably will get even more mad by tomorrow...

... That post on my facebook didn't help either.. GAH! I HATE YOU!
I really might actually punch someone.

Sick Day

Tonight Jake and I went to Ryan Pelton the Elvis inpersonator again. It was again one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I got a teddy bear. I also got to hang with Isaac and Morgan and I must say it's nice to have friends who haven't forgotten your existence in this universe. ;). I also saw Mr. Johnston; my fav teacher from high school. Anyways, he is super sweet. He even remembers what I was going into college for.. Again nice to know people remember me.. (hint hint) I mean if a teacher can remember you.. shouldn't your friends.
ANYWAYS! I've been sick all week so I haven't been able to go see the little kiddies at the school. They really brighten up my day and without seeing them i've been a grumpy old witch. That could also be because i'm sick. haha. I did get to go on monday to their field trip which was super fun. They got to go to Elite Gymnastics gym which was FABULOUS! haha. They're so cute.
I've gotten a lot of writing done. I havent' been working on anything in particular. Just adding chapters to other stories and what not. It's been quite fun. Being sick is sometimes useful towards my writing career. I get so sick of watching TV it gives me great motivation to continue writing. haha.
Well anyways. Amy Howell is in town and i'm super excited. I hope that we get to do something while she is here. I love her very very much. :D. Anyways. I love you guys. I hope you don't get sick. :S..

Sugar Daddy's.

Alright so my family and I have started the ideo of starting a food place/Restaurant. ( sp?) Anyways here's the idea:
A dessert place that is open six nights a week. there you will experience live entertainment from around 6 until ten at night. Local bands will play and such.
For the food there will be crazy desserts and regular desserts. such as pies brownies cookies. There will also be such thing as hot chocolate and such. In the back with be an arcade room where there will be old school games (Frogger, Pacman). We will do birthday parties. Special birthday parties where employees will dress up like princesses and what not. (Something like my Aunt Missi does. still working on this aspect). On the walls will hang local artists works. Photography, drawings, Painting. They will be available for sale. So basically people who want to sell their work will be able to.
The prices will determine on your purchases. But you can basically plan on about 5 dollars a person.
My mother will probably be exposing her delicious carmel corn which you will surely love. It's like heaven in your mouth.. You should trust me, I happen to like food. :D. Uhmm. There will talent contests. I'm trying to get my dad to do a senior date night. (Like for old people.. not seniors)
Anyways it's a little coffee shop type of deal. but with no coffee or alcohol served. It's a perfect place to get your band discovered or sell your artwork.
Anyways what I want to know is if you think this is a good idea. My mom told us we had to ask at least 10 people if they think it's a good idea.. so I better get 10 responses.
Anyways there's tons and tons more idea's that have been thrown around. Those are basically the main ideas. So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me what you think. If you don't want to comment on here leave me a message on facebook or myspace. Whichever you heard this from. :D.

I love you guys. :D

Update.

I haven't been on for awhile.
Nothing much has happened realy. I started this really cool story that i'm totally into. It's pretty exciting. I've been putting my book up and such so that's exciting. Uhm. I didn't get to the second round of the competition thing.. It sucks but not really at all. After editing my book for the website i've noticed that it's not nearly ready for publishing yet. There are a few more things that I would like to change and what not. So don't worry about me because it didn't bother me one bit.
Carsten is staying the night tonight. So that means that i've spent the whole night watching Thomas the Tank. haha. It's alright because I enjoy it. I have about 1 million things to do tomorrow. That will be pretty exciting.
I need to edit a little more tonight before I go to bed.
Oh I started working at the elementary school that I used to go to and it's been crazy fun. I go ever morning and full days tuesday and wednesday. It's way exciting and i'm rather enjoying myself. I want to teach kids so bad. I just can't wait until I get the chance. Le sigh. Anyways that's all i've been up to.
No one really talks to me anymore so i don't have any important drama or anything. Actually I have quite a sad life.

This is the new year

So, I need to start getting up early. I need to start working out. and I need to watch every disney show I have in my house before I leave to school. so this is what I have decided.
Starting monday I will watch a disney show early in the morning while working out. That way I get everything done in one shot. So what's a good time to wake up eight? sounds good to me. So Sunday I will not be staying up late any longer. Perhaps with my new energy I will be able to get inspiration in writing.
I need to eat better too. I'll probably make out a time list and give it to my mom so she can keep me on it! I will do that.. Microsoft Excel here I come. :D yay! I love it. I haven't used it in forever.
I shall do that now. I'll color code it and everything. Le sigh. Maybe i'll get back into some sort of shape before school. if I lose 10 pounds I will be happy. Anyways..
I've also decided that I need to get back into acting and singing. So when I go to school i'm going to join the choir that you don't need to audition for. I think i'm going to start singing alto. I dont' think I can sing first soprano any longer.
So idk. Maybe these are like new resolutions. Nah because people dont' keep resolutions (I'm one of those people). So hopefully the disney shows can keep me motivated. haha.

I love you all.

Help me make the music of the night...

I love Pandora. Today I heard the saddest song ever.. again. When she loved me from Toy story 2. Probably the saddest song EVAR! THEN! I heard David cook sing music of the night.. Oh my goodness. I think I fell in love with him all over again.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vfd4xzPdWvY

Listen to it. AMAZING!
Anyways. It was rather fabulous. I watched men's figure skating on the olympics tonight. It was a whole lot of fun. One of the skaters skated to Phantom music. I picked him to win until the American guy came up then I rooted for him. But still. I basically love Phantom I guess. haha. ^^ really listen to it. FABULOUS!
Well that's basically all I have! Tomorrow is friday. Thank goodness. Maybe i'll take Jake and Kaycee to see New Moon. It's tradition. haha.
Anyways I love you all!
Have a good night.

Ear love.

This is so totally random but you should know.:

Ray LaMontagne is the best singer ever! I mean his voice is like sweet chocolately liquid running through my ears. Mmm. Nothing can even describe. I was telling my good friend John that his voice is the soundtrack of my life. If he sang the worst song ever written I wouldn't care. He would somehow make it sound like an angel is singing. :D. I wish I had some of his albums. Suck man. Anyways.. He's the greatest thing.
If you haven't heard him I really recommend it. He's the best thing ever..
ANYWAYS! That's what you should know.
CJ Holverson's voice (boy from IF) totally remind me of Ray.. That's probably why I enjoy hearing him sing so much. hehe. :D. If i ever make a movie they both will be on the soundtrack. Yay.

GRRRRRRgh

I don't understand what I do.. I mean i'm not a bad friend am I? But how can every single one of my friends stop talking to me all at the same time? I mean my BEST friends.. There's NO ONE! Nothing.. I've never been very lucky with friends.. no one who ever seemed to want to stick around. It just sucks.. I try. I try very hard to make and keep friends. People don't realize how much I actually do try. It's not easy for me to just randomly befriend people. It's especially not easy for me to open up to someone. ESPECIALLY because every seems to just up and leave with me. I've been having the feeling that perhaps I wasn't ever meant to have friends. Perhaps I never will have friends. Maybe i'll get married.. but that's not looking up either. and I know everyone's going to read tihs.. haha did I just say that everyone reads my blog. HAHAHAHAH! that was funny. But I mean when you read this you're going to think or say something along the lines. You don't know what's in store for you. or I"m your friend Katie. Or don't be in such a rush.. I've heard it.. I've listened.. but I know myself probably better than you.. I know my life better than you and i KNOW what is going on. Friends suck. Family rules and well that's what i'm sticking with. I think i'll cut myself off from the outside world until I leave for school. No more friends No more text messaging unless it's family. I"m just sick of trying to be good to someone only to get it slapped in my face OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.. and YOU!
Oh you.. you have better know how incredibly hurt I am by you.. I poured my soul out to you. told you things I have never told anyone in my life.. and this is how you repay me? I've never told anyone things I told you.. NO ONE! I can't believe that you would call me your best friend.. I can't believe you would dare to say i'll always be in life and then completely cut me out of it. I don't think i've ever felt so hurt by anyone.. "Nothing comes between friends, especially fences" -budweiser commercial from the superbowl. I just.. I don't know I don't see how something that could be put before me.
Some people's children..
I"m just upset and mad
if you don't hear from me ever again..
read this freaking blog and think about what you've done.

I don't love you all.. Only some of you tonight. <3

I'm All Shook Up...

Alright so last night was probably the best night of my life. My family and I went to see an elvis impersonator. I am a huge fanatic for elvis. Anything about him I love him.. ecspecially people who look and sing like him. anyways my parents got us all tickets for Valentines day. WEll we went and had the best time EVER! Jake and I sat in the front row and got our ear drums blasted out. We screamed and ran to the front. Jake got me a lei.. lea.. idk those hawaiian things. haha. I bought him a tag thing and the Elvis guy (Ryan Pelton..) signed it for us. He is probably my newest and biggest crush. Anyways here are some pictures.





This Me, Jake, and Ryan Pelton (Elvis)<3 <3 <3



Anyways it was the best night of my life and nothing will ever compare.. at least for awhile. haha. I have the best family and the greatest little brother. :D. Just so you all know your brothers don't compare to mine. haha. I love you all.
Sleep well and safely.

My Love For You Is So Strong..

Hello everyone.
I'm incredibly bored. I had an alright day. I'm just tired of being stuck here.. I mean like.. I can't do anything. It's kinda boring. Idk. I've become rather good at Dragon Age. hah.
Today Carsten called and asked if I would take him to Planet 51. so tomorrow that is what he and I are going to do. It should be fun. I enjoy taking him out. He's my BFF. hahaha. You know you're sad when your best friend is your little 3 year old nephew. hehe. He's my life though. I don't think I could live without him.
Saturday there's a primary activity so we get to go to that. Yay. I'm so very excited about that. He gets to decorate a cookie and make valentines. HE's such a little sweet heart.
I mean nothing compares to the love I have for him. You guys probably think i'm crazy. haha. It seems all I ever talk about is Carsten and Writing. Well yeah. I love lots of other stuff like My family, Music, Movies, Swimming. My family knows I love them.. so does music. haha. It's just my life seems to revolve around Writing and Carsten. He's the best little thing on the planet. I love him and Writing so much i've combined the two. Carsten is in my book. His name isn't Carsten. In fact it's Dallon. but that's the only place they differ. For most of the story Dallon is in Thomas the Tank pajamas.. or Pa Jay Jay's like jake says. I like Pa Jay Jay's better. haha.
Idk.. Carsten just showed up at the exact right time. I was 15 and completely lost. If there was one year I would go and take back that would be it. That was the darkest and hardes time of my life. I'm surprised I even got out. When I was just about to give up he came along. I can remember perfectly the first time I held that little tiny body. It was the first time i'd held a baby. The first time i'd been in a hospital room. The first time I truly fell in love. When that little guy opened his eyes I knew that he would always be a part of me. :D. I vowed from that day forward I would do anything to be his favorite aunt and be the best aunt.
I've always wanted to be the aunt that they can run to. Someone they can trust and confide in when their parents just don't seem to understand. I never had that I always just had to let it fester inside of me. Hmmph. I don't know. Anyways I love the kid very much and I would give up my life for him. :D.

Superbowl Sunday

well i've already falied at one of my resolutions.. Whoops. Whatevs.
Yesterday I went and saw Avatar. Here is what I think. Fabulous acting. Fabulous effedct. Fabulous emotion and all that stuff.. Music.. James Horner branch out a little bud. Story.. not so much. I mean it was pretty good.
But over all.. after another look at it could possibly become one of my favorites. It was very uplifting and happy inside. I would recommend everyone seeing it. There were a couple parts in it where I was goin.. wtf. but I do that in most every movie. :D. hehe. Anyways..
Congrats Saints on the win. Although it would've been nice to see Hank and Peyton win.. buuuut. You can't always get what you want. I enjoy the superbowl very much. Sometimes it's more fun that christmas. :D. haha. I'm a little weird. The contest started today.. excited? haha. Anyways we'll see how that goes.
Carsten is the cutest little thing ever. we got him all day today. Even during the superbowl. He watched it for awhile until he got in troulbe for touching the TV too many times.. Now there are sticking fingers all over the plasma screen. Yuck. I'll probably cleen those tomorrow.
Tomorrow carsten will be here.. Probably all day.. like always. Hmmph. Idk. I'm a little tired but not really at all. I want to watch star wars or alexander or something. I'm pretty bored.. maybe I should write something. haha. New names and characters for the book; Dallon Landon and Malachi. :D. There will be plenty others dont' you worry.
I was figuring out the end of one of my stories within the book. (There's three different POV's throughout the book.) anyways I was thinking about the end of the David Zane story and I almost cried. :'( Sad panda. We'll see how that works out. I'm pretty positive that's the way it's going to end.
I'm really excited for this one. There's battles and wars and explosions.. idk. It's pretty exciting. I've written like 8 pages. wow i'm so far. hahaha. Idk. I should probably write. that's probably more important than watching TV huh?
Well anyways i've written enough of nothing now.
I hope you all had a fantabulous superbowl sunday. Hope your team won.. Oh and hey.. how come there is not arrows on the key board that face down there's << >> ^^.. why no down.. Sad day man.
Anyways.. idk. I Love you all. I'm sorry I say anyways a lot.

Vlog

HELLO!
How are all of you tonight? I hope you're totally good. :D. haha don't ask. I'm really bored. There's not much going on. I'm still trying to get inspired to write something. I hate these times where I have so many stories inside my head and don't know how to get them out. :S hmmph. IDK. IT's pretty crazy. I think I ate too many suckers tonight.. Blah.. Oh wait.. No I had milk today.. that is why I don't feel well. I should really keep track of that. Uhm. Oh wow the contest officially starts tomorrow.. Excited? I kind of am. haha. Time passes fast when all you do is watch Youtube all day. :D I must admit I have seen some pretty funny stuff.. so i'm not complaining. haha. Ray William Johnson is pretty funny and keeps me updated on the newest videos. Idk.. His Breaking NYC channel's pretty cool too.
I've become addicted to People's Vlogs. I guess i'm living my life through theirs now.. haha how sad am I. Maybe i'll start vlogging. Jake and I decided that we need to really record our drives home because they're pretty epic and we come up with some of the best dance moves ever. Perhaps we will actually do that.. Be on the look out for mine and jakes's vlogs. :D. haha. Who knows. It could be very interesting. People probably wouldn't watch them. But oh well. haha.
Well I"m glad to have people like you.. you like.. five people.. is that how many followers I have? Idk I don't remember. WEll you're my favs. haha. I LOVE YOU ALL!

<3 Katie Wan.

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

Yay

I love youtube. Just so you know.
Today Carsten and I went to the Library.. which was good. I got Craig Ferguson's book. It was pretty dang fun. We also went and got Thomas the Tank Movies. They're the best ever! haha.
John Stewart is super cute. :D hahaa.
I saw shadowbox again and it was fabulous tonight. :D Nice work buddies.
That's basically all I have to say..
OH HOW COULD I FORGET! I signed up for that contest today.. :S Nerve wracking. I don't know how well i'll do.. but you know.. doesn't hurt to try. :D. Idk. I guess Shadowbox got to me.. If i'm dying it must mean i'm still alive.. Probably the best thing ever. I need to be more out and working harder. I don't know.. we'll see

I love you all.

While walking home late one night Collin finds himself trapped and pleading for his life. Within seconds he is saved by Miami’s most popular hero, Phoenix Oreson. Phoenix Oreson is part of the famous Oreson Family. Larsen Oreson, a large and respected man, has protected the City of Miami for decades. After the betrayal of his oldest son Ryder Oreson, Phoenix is now by his side. Phoenix, or “Wonder boy” to Collin, has a secret no one knows.
After Collin’s father leaves and his mother quickly moves on Collin finds himself completely lost in the world. Phoenix again comes to his rescue. Whisking him off of his feet and soaring through the air. Once the two are grounded Phoenix bears his soul. Two tiny words can change so much. As Collin begins to realize what he’s gotten into his world is completely flipped upside down. Everything he has ever known seems to fall out straight from underneath his feet. Can Collin really adapt to such a high speed and adventurous daily life?
After a long year of self discovery and deep love Phoenix leaves, completely abandoning Collin. Death and betrayal soon follow causing Collin to turn into something he isn’t. The loss proves too immense for him as he tries to take his own life. Unexpectedly another hero comes to town just in time to save Collin from leaping off the edge of a building. Rylan Khorry, a young doctor who seems to be hiding many things. He saves Collin’s life and gets him put back together. Through their time together a whole new world is exposed to Collin. A world that seemed to be lurking in the shadows is now exposed. Soon a dark creature begins to threaten the happiness Collin has now found, someone who knows a little too much. In the end Collin must find the strength to save all that he loves.
Through trials, loss, and love Collin soon realizes that in every cloud there’s A Silver Lining."

Dagnabit

Before you get mad I must ask.. Does anyone even read this? haha. I don't care.. but I've missed the past few days. WHOOOOPS! anyways.. The past few days haven't been very eventful. It snowed a lot and i'm not happy with that. :S.
Jake and I watched Michael Jackson's "This Is It" last night. :D haha. We had a good time. I sure do miss him. We didn't finish it. We got to thriller and realized it was time to go to bed. I'm sure we'll find a time to watch it another time.
I've spent my days playing video games or watching videos. Wow i'm very awesome. Did I tell you I started a new campaign on Dragon Age.. This time I fell in love with Zevran. I forgave him for trying to kill me. :D. It's been quite exciting. I started Mass Effect today and got really confused to I think i'll wait for jake to get home and explain it for me. :S. haha.
He and I have been playing Lego Rock Band like.. every day. :D. haha. It's probably one of the best games ever. If you love Rock band then you def need to get Lego rock band. It has some of the coolest songs on there. It has a Jackson 5 song. I mean how cool is that. :D. I love Michael Jackson.
Do you know who else I love? Obama. He gives me hope. He makes america Okay to live in again. Under bush I almost killed myself. Gaaah. I was always feeling frustrated. But now with Obama there is relief. haha. Idk. i'm kind of nuts.. and he's hot. so that's a pluuuus!
Well that's basically all i've been up to. Nothing too exciting.
I love you all.

So.. Pandora is fabulous. If you haven't gotten into it.. YOU BETTER! It's fantabulous and can keep you entertained and happy for hours. My goodness is it amazing.
Today was boring.. I played Dragon age. I"m fallin in love with Zevran this time. :D. he had a rough life. Poor guy.
Last night I watched Carsten.. did I say that.. My sister got in a fight... Le sigh.
I have a lot to say on that subject but I won't.

Punch A Baby.

I am oh so very sick of losing friends.. I've been doing the same thing over and over and over again. I've made a plan. I"m going to go to BYU and get married.. then I won't have to deal with having friends ever again. My friends will be my family. GRRRRRRRRRR. I hate people sometimes.
Anyways! Today my dad and I tried to cook dinner.. we smoked up the house.. we burnt a potato.. Basically we shouldnt' be allowed to cook anymore. IT was pretty funny though. I smell like smoke along with the rest of the house. I picked up Jake and he looks at me all weird like i've been smoking.. I was like.. we burnt the potatoes. hehe. IT was funny.
I watched the babies tonight. Although Carsten was the only one awake. He and I watched LIFE-SIZE.. remember that movie? the one where Tyra Banks is a barbie that comes to life. I miss the 90's.. grr. Uhmm. I"m not in a very good mood and I probably won't be for awhile. IDK. I"m just sick of how my life is going I guess. I need a change. Hmmph.
Oh and i'm sick of people on Facebook with relationship drama.. They need to just shut up. I mean.. If you're a senior in high school and still doing that.. then really you have bigger problems than just your relationship. I"m just on one tonight. I don't really care for people's feelings anymore. Everyone else seems to just stomp on mine why should I care for theirs? Probably because i'm a nice person and care about my friends and their feelings..
I mean.. If I TRY to have a conversation with you then try and have one back.. I sit at home all day. The only person I have to talk to is my mom and she gets sick of me and reads a book while I try and talk to her.. Basically I talk to my dog all day long.. Then I get on here.. and really this isn't socialization.. Have you ever played the sims? Well if you have a family friend you must keep in contact with them in order to keep them as a friend. If not they yell at you and tell you to get lost.. basically. I think that's what i'm doing.. If you want to talk to me then YOU talk to me..

I wish Patrick Wilson was here.. I'd make him sing to me.. Over and Over again.. I'm simulating it by listening to All I Ask Of You over and over again. :D. I'm a weirdo.. I socialize myself by listening to people sing and imagining their here. Well.. I'm ticked.. My family is awesome and I wouldn't trade them. good thing I have them or else I would've died long ago.. I probably would've died in a house fire.. hehe.

I love you all.. Kinda.. not so much today.. So.. I love some of you today. :D

<3 Katie Wan.

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Woah!

My goodness did I not write in this or what?
I feel like such a bad person. haha. You haven't missed much though. I think I'm going to start writing a short story.. it will be a sort of screwed up fairy tale. Kind of like Enchanted but backwards and different.. haha. Kinda.. Princesses Princes.. You know the whole shabang. Love.. magic carpets.. why not have a magic carpet? haha.
Anyways I took carsten shopping on Tuesday. WE went and bought stuff for church on sunday and we bought food.. and we bought FIIIIISHES! I think it was the most fun i've ever had. The fish were so awesome. I've also decided that for school i'm going to get a small aquarium and have two fishies in them. If I can.. of course. Hmm. I need to find someone who lives in the dorms at BYU.. Maybe they will be able to answer my question. anyways I want to get a salt water tank and get like a nemo or something. If I did get a clown fish guess what I would name it... Nemo. haha. I'm so creative.
Today Alex was in town and my good friend Jonathon Hunter was also in town. The three of us hung out. We ate a really big piece of pie. We drove around then played rock band. It wasn't very eventful but it was fun to hang with them again. I sure do love those boys. Le sigh. Robbie even called today. My day was filled with my favorite boys. Yay! haha.
Uhmm. Not having milk is kinda sucking.. I mean how the heck am i supposed to eat cereal? I don't really wake up in time for breakfast.. only like once a week. So I guess once a week won't kill me. haha.
Well anyways.. There's a short story coming out soon. I hope. How long should a short story be? Short.. idk. I'm confused.. Well anyways.

I love you all.

Golf?

Where have I been?
haha. I don't even know. Life has been pretty uneventful. Saturday I did nothing.. I went shopping with my mom. Yay. That was the extent of the day.
Sunday today I went to church. I sang and I subbed for primary again. It was a lot of fun. I get to do it again next week. :D. Carsten was bunches of fun today. I always enjoy hanging out with him. I think tomorrow he and I will pick out some fish for the tank.
Did I mention jake and I names our car.. Jake believe's the car's a girl and I told him it's a boy.. so we decided on the car being a drag queen. It's name is Glitter Starshine. :D Just so you all know.

Well that's basically all I have to say. I love you all.

Oh goodness.

TGIF!
So.. today I went to the movies. I took carsten to see The princess and the frog.. or whatever it's called. I LOOOOVED it. I was quite happy with it. I recommend everyone seeing it. At first i thought I was going to hate it.. but then I saw it and was like.. this is the best movie ever.. and that prince.. holy geeze. He's my new cartoon crush. :D Peace out Alladin.
Going with carsten was fun. He yelled at some people in front of us to sit down after they had taken a bathroom break. How embarassing. hehe. He's the cutest little thing ever. I"m very happy that he actually likes to sit close to me now. When he was younger he never was a cuddler. He really just stayed away from people. Now, he cuddles. :D. I think i'm the only one he'll cudle with.. but i'm totally alright with that.
I"m having troubles typing tonight so I apologize now.
I also saw 2012 today. It was an alright movie. Totally not correct or anything.. and freaking the hot pilot guy died.. If there's anyone I want to help in reproducing for the new generation it would be him.. I'd have 100 of his babies.. :S. but he died.. jsut so you know before hand.. he dies.

Curses..
Medical update: yay. Today my stomach doesn't hurt as bad. Last night it got pretty bad. Although I think someone punched my ribs last night while I was sleeping.. it kinda hurts. It's actually quite funny. My purifier is helping slightly. I'm just sick of people telling me it's in my head.. blah blah blah.. I know what's in my head.. and this isn't.. this is pain.. Graaawr.
I really just need to move out. I love my family.. but somedays I feel like i'm suffocating.. Idk.. It's just time to get out on my own. :/ I'm sure i'll miss it here the second I move out.. hehe. but for now.. that's what I need.

I'm going to start the third book in the next few days. Probably tomorrow since i have no life at all. I know what you're thinking. "Katie you just finished the second.." I know.. but I must get the full story out before I can go all the way back and start over. Of course i continue to edit throughout my writing and what not.. but I have to completely clear my mind.. I'm very strange. I know.. trust me.

Anyways.. recap for today.. I love Carsten and he's basically the reason I breath.. My stomach didn't hurt so bad today. I'm really tired and continue to stay up. I'll sleep in until late in the afternoon tomorrow so no worries. oh btw I love muse.
I learned Bar on A by Greg Holden.. Fabulous.

Okay i'm done..
I love you all.

Grrrgle

Thursday! OH yay.. not really.
Today I was sick.. big surprise. We're taking out dairy from my diet to see if maybe i'm allergic to it. I got a new air purifier which is helping a little.. It will take awhile before fully kicking in. My stomcah hurts today.. It's like spasming and heaving.. it's quite gross and I don't like it. I also keep getting really hot then really cold.. I don't know. Perhaps this daily blog will turn into a medical journal. :S

Well despite being sick I went to Jen's acoustic show that she was putting on. It was lots of fun. It's nice to see the talent in IF. Jen's song was amazing and I was very very proud. She did wonderful. She and andrew were my favorite I think. Although everyone did very well.

I spent about 2 hours curling my hair today. It ended up being way cute.. I thought. idk what other people thought. They probably thought I was nuts. :S


That's like the side of it.. I didn't really get a picture of the WHOLE thing... But yeah.. I was pretty proud.

Well I think i'm going to idk.. find something to do or go to bed..
I love you all.

The Kill..

Well today I beat Dragon Age. Allistair and I got married. YAY! I love him oh so very much.
I seriously think i'm dying.. I mean we all kind of are.. but I'm beginning to think that i'm going to die earlier than most. I'm always sick. I can't really remember a time where I felt completely well. :S. I mean not ever! People always say,k mainly the parents,"It's because you don't get enough exercise." Even when I did get enough.. and more than I should've I didn't even feel good then. I'm pretty positive that I have some immune system thing.. Anyways.. I just wish I could feel better.. but that won't happen. I"m doomed to be sick for the rest of my life.. How am I ever going to have babies? that will put so much stress on my body that I'll completely break out in shingles all over my body..
Speaking of shingles they hurt up to a year after you get them.. just so you know.. and guess what.. THEY EFFING DO!
Lets just say i'm not very happy about my body.. although the past few days it seems i've been losing lots of weight.. which probably isn't such a good thing.. but hey skinny's good isn't it? Probably not when you die from it.
But no worries I won't die. I'm really pale though and I have dark circles under my eyes.. Oh and the cool red rings around your eye lids.. mm I look like a crack addict.
I watched Craig Ferguson tonight. I love him he's so funny.
But basically today wasn't so bad. Carsten TOOOOTALLY made my day. He called me on the phone and wanted to hang out.. :D. Maybe i'll take him out friday or something. I love that little goober baby. Have I ever told you that he's the reason i'm alive today? I'm basically sure of that. That little guy saved my life.
He's my little superhero.. he saves me from the monsters.. he's my lion and i'm his polar bear.. even though I drop stuff on his head.. which actually didn't end up too bad. :S.. I'm a bad aunt. hehe.

Well, I can't sleep when i'm sick so i'm going to be.. idk study something. Hmmph.
Tomorrow is Jen's acoustic show.. I'm so excited. woot woot.
Well I love you all. Sleep well my loves.

Bad Bad Katie..

I'm tired and I stayed up waaaay to late playing Dragon Age.. Best game ever btw. :D

Uhm.. I watched carsten today and he got hurt.. Pretty sure he has a black eye by now. :S.. My bad. Hey for all the times of watching him he's only been hurt once. I must say i'm pretty dang good. :D
I love him.. he's the best thing ever btw..
Alright i'm going to check my farm on Farmville and go to bed.. Perhaps tomorrow will be a better day.. but I doubt it. :D

Love you all.

Continuation..

Nothing much happened after my last post.
Right now i'm completely bored. I like to take a break from all stories after finishing a big project. It's a time for me to refresh my brain.
So tonight we had a birthday party for my grandma! yay grandma!Happy birthday! It was fun. Only Zach and Carsten came over cause everyone else was sick. Carsten was a goof ball as always. i love that little kid he's probably the best thing to happen ont his earth.. I think i'm going to put him in my next book. :D Look for him. I'll make it quite obvious. Little goober.

The days been good. So i'm hungry.. Awesome. :D.
I think i'm going to.. idk I have nothing to do anymore. I'm so boring. :D

I love you all.
Sleep well.

<3 Katie Wan.

My Bad..

As of like 20 minutes ago I finished the second book in my TRILOGY! That's right it will be a trilogy. :D haha. Yay pants.
Uhmm. So last night was spent writing writing and writing. I'm very very excited for finishing it.
I'm hoping that I can finish the third very soon also. Hopefully by the end of the year. :D.
Anways that's basically all that happened. Yesterday Carsten told me he wanted his dady to go to chruch which him.. sad.
I got to lead the music again in Primary which was lots of fun. They're so cute. They also gave me a calling as the Ward Choir director. :O that oughta be very interesting. I aleady have an idea for the easter song. hopefully I can make it come out the way i want.
tonight is my grandma's birthday party. :D. Yay. I got her a cute present that hopefully she likes. :S.
Uhmm. have you seen those posters at seagull book of the BOM heroes.. *fan my face* Hot! Of course the old guys like moses.. not so much. But Nephi.. you lookin fine. haha. I think my fav one was of Enos.. mm. We be tight. they didn't have the poster there so I was a little upset. I'll have to go back later and get one so I can bring it to school. hahaha. Well i'll probably write another one tonight considering I messed up.. It' snot like anyone reads this anyways.. but whatever.. it's for me right?

well I love you all.

What you've been waiting for..

So I guess in england the cool thing to do is beat each other? idk according to the movie I jus watched.

So, Stephanie Meyer and Twilight Rant:

I"m not going to deny that at first I was a fan of twilight. That was when I was like 15. After gaining a few more years of knowledge i've soon realized my mistake in this.
Firstly the book is written quite badly. I'm not saying that i'm a genius writer or anything.. but really.. Through a lot of it I found myself incredibly bored. A lot of the book is talking about Bella's feelings. I get very tired hearing about that. A book needs action and excitement. If not, then well i'm bored already.
Second: sure it's wonderful to have a guy care about you as much as Jacob and Edward care for Bella.. but what the eff creeepy town man. If someone watches you sleep or change (in secret) It's not love.. that's stalking. So if someone sits outside your window and watches you 24/7.. you should probably call the police and not let him bite you.. There are too many girls who look at it and say that's okay for men to watch me change and be completely protective over me.
No that is not okay.. NO gay potato you can't do that! (ask me later) Girls men who control every aspect of your life is not a good guy. A couple times Edward scared the crap out of me in the books. I was always worried that he'd get a little too upset. :S. But then he'd kill bella so i'd just be like.. okay. wow that sentence sucked.
I hope you all know that my writing isn't like my blogs.. My speech sure is though. :D.
Edward you are a creepy stalker and I wouldn't let you come near me.
Jacob you are like 15 and jailbait.. DON'T DATE PEOPLE UNER 16 IT'S CREEEEEPY! (of course unless you're under 18)
The fourth book of the saga is completely awful. It was SOOOO boring I almost shot myself.

Now Stephanie Meyer,
How could you ever let someone take a book you worked on for so long and completely tear it apart on screen? I mean, you can't actually think those movies are good. My gosh they are awful. In new moon I almost threw up like 4 times from cheesyness. If my books were ever made into movies I would make sure I had complete creative rights. I don't care what it would take. My own money? sure why not. I will make sure that my movie portrays the book. I think that if i ever had someone do mine it would be Peter Jackson. He's big in letting the real story come through.. but i'm not a fan of all New zealand or australian actors.. but it's okay.. I love Peter Jackson and his movies. and the people that work with him. Okay getting off subject. STephanie meyer your best bet is to completely pull your rights from the movies. Just spend more money on it and get real actors.. that'd be a good thing.. real actors are always nice.
My goodness. I feel a little better. Of course there will always be more to say. I'm sure that if it came up in discussion I could go off on it for hours.
If you read my books if you ever compare them to Twilight I WILL kill you. STab me in the throat.. gah.
I will continue to go to all the premieres because well.. the people are absoloutely ridiculous. This year we are going wear Team Jacob shirts with my little brother jakes' face on it. :D I"m totally on his side. He's not a vampire or a Werewolf.. can we even call them werewolves.. gah. The emotional wolves Organization.. EMO.. hahahahaha. Wow that's funny. Well, I enjoy myself too much.
Anyways I hope you enjoyed this. I'm sure we'll have another rant blog sometime in the future. :D

I love you all. :D
Sleep tight my little munchkins.

True Love's Kiss..

Writing:
It seems to me that I haven't posted enough about it? well here i'm going to try and get it all out in one blog.. (will that ever happen? probably not) I will continue to bore you all with it until my death. :D
Writing is my passion it is my love and I would be nowhere without it. At first I though perhaps music would be my passion. Then maybe dance. or perhaps maybe art (which I suck at). All my life i've known that I was creative. I knew that I would spend my life making something out of nothing but the pure juices inside my brain.
After reading the Twilight saga many years back I remember thinking. I enjoy telling stories and I love hearing stories all around me. The main thing I like about a book/anything is a good story. Characters that really bring home the message. That is what i'm all about. Of course Twilight didn't have any of that.. so don't be spreading rumors that I was inspired by Twilight.. well perhaps I was.. I was inspired to write something better that would educate people more than anything. I've wanted my stories out there and filling the minds of people.
I"ve always had stories in my head. There were always situations or encounters I would come up with and morph and create into something I could play off of. So after reading the Twilight saga I finally said to my best friend (Alex Knudsen LYLY) I"m going to write a book and i'll kinda make it about my life.
He said I had to put him in there (of course I was going to he's a huge part of my life)So I did. The story I'm sure was not wonderful! but it was good and he and I enjoyed writing it together. That's when I realized hey.. maybe I could do this more often.
Another thing you must know is I write about controversial subjects and I don't really care. I write what I write and i love it. If people can't respect that then.. poo on them. I've truly found what makes me happy and most of them can't say that..
So anyways.. I started writing my next book about a boy who falls in love with his math teacher. Alex was my first fan. (I handwrote everything) we would pass my notebook back and forth. He would come over all the time and watch tv as I sat and wrote next to him. (Alex.. geeze I love you. I mean who else would do that? BFF)
My writing never really stopped after that. It was about that time that I started on my favorite (the one i've been working on now) Silver Lining is the name. At first it was just my super hero story. The one that I went to when I couldn't write anything else.
I decided in that one that I would just put everything I loved about superheroes and my gay friends and bunch it all together to form one giant story. AS the months went on I realized.. holy crap I like this story and you know what, it's pretty dang good. Perhaps I just hold my work on a giant pedestal but I really like it and I know at least 2 people who do too. hehe. :D Quartney and Jen. :D. (LYboth)
So this book, I started forming it and forming it. After awhile I put it away and worked on other things. I picked it up once more when Jen started reading my stories. After she read it I decided I would change some of it.. So I got the lap top :D yay my baby. I started typing away. I sat in my basement for like two weeks and just wrote. Occasionally I did my homework but mostly I was dedicated to writing. I changed a few names (which was crazy hard for awhile I kept forgetting I had done it.) and I added a few new characters.
Since then I haven't stopped working on it. When the first was finished I missed it so much I started on a second. With that almost finished i've started thinking about the third. I'm really excited for the third.
so anyways.. I love writing and I can't see myself doing anything else for the rest of my life. Without writing I would completely explode.. like really.. it'd be cool though. hmm.
You know what else I would explode without? Jen. She's been my main source for writing for a long time. Every sentence I write I write for her. I always hope that she enjoys it because I don't want to bore her to death. I'd feel really bad. It's hard to describe in words how much she's really done for me.. alright touching music came on right as I wrote that.. How.. creepy. :D Anyways. Jen's my rock and I would die without her. If I ever become famous she's totally coming to all the famous parties in LA or wherever.. and she's totally gonna help me pimp slap Stephanie meyer. Stephanie meyer and twilight is a whole nother blog.. Perhaps tomorrow? Oh goodness. Back to what I was saying. Jen, I love you. you've probably read all this haven't you? bet you have. Oh and she prefers me to hand write.. wtf? Crazy girl. I love her though. We get to watch LOTR tomorrow. Maybe Steven will come.. I miss my friends. :(. Jen sorry.. I keep getting off subject. YOu know how I am. Thanks for sticking with me even though i'm frustrating. You're my BFF and instead of muse you get to inspire my books.. and my books are cooler than Twilight.. so technically you're cooler than Muse.. I'll leave it at that.

Finally she's done right? If you read this.. Bravo. You put up with my mumbo jumbo for this long.. You must really like me. :D haha.

Well I hope that somehow you can see a little better into my mind. I hope that someday if I publish my book you can say you read this before anyone else and that you knew me before I was famous. I won't deny it. If I become a millionaire I will pay each of my followers on this day $500.. sound good?

Well I hope you all sleep well. I know I will. Although the weird sound is back.. mm Pudding.

(PS: What's with the Title ^^.. I think I was on crack when I wrote it. :S)

To the point..

Short and sweet..
Jakes band concert was way awesome.
Tyler has to go to Haiti to help in the rescue efforts.
There's a strange sound in my house that's creeping me out.
I need to move out because I need to feel and be treated like an adult.
Finally the book is coming along quite wonderfully.

I love you all.
Sleep well.

NERD

Another uneventful day. Is it really Tuesday already? Geeze time flies.
I've spent the day writing. It's been truly wonderful. I'm getting very close to the end of the book. Everything is playing out quite nicely. It's already longer than the first. I belive i'm at 156 pages now.. Hmm. Something like that. I'm very proud of what I have accomplished.
Jen and I discovered that you can drag and drop pictures in MSN messenger.. we used that a lot today. hehe. :D. I showed her the whole cast of my book. :D. Yeah i'm so obsessed that I cast my book.. my make believe movie of my book. hehe. :D oh wow.
Well i've just established that I am a HUUUUUGE nerd.
That's alright though. I've been one all my life hasn't stopped me yet. :)

Well I hope everyone had a lovely day.
I love you all.

Sing Like You Think No One's Listening...

OH monday. I'm sorry to all of you that had to start school today. That really sucks.. for you. hehe. :D
I went to ISU today to get my check.. Cashier wasn't there. I"m really really sick of ISU..
I got my house today for school. I live in the ricks building down in Rexburg. :D yay sauce. I"m really excited to get down there and get my life started. I'm tired of just sitting around and doing nothing.. Although i'm not doing nothing..
Writing is what i'm doing.
Although I want to get out and spread my wings.. Not HAVE to do anything but choose it on my own free will. No one telling me what to do. That will be quite nice. :D.
Writing is going quite well actually. I'm nearing the end of the sequel. I'm a little sad because I don't know if i'm seeing a third book. I"m trying to make the way for one.. (I've always been a fan of trilogy's) I'm sure that someday in the shower I will have another epiphany and be able to create another masterpiece.
I think perhaps I think to highly of myself and my work? hmm. It's okay to be proud every once and awhile right? I think so.

I hope you all have a good night. I will be up half the night writing. and I will sleep until I FEEL LIKE IT! Grr. Yet again.. that's why I need to live in my own place..

I love you all.

LOVE

Well I got on here quite early. I figured nothing exciting would happen in the next few hours so I would get on now.
Today was church and it was quite fun. My mom had a job to do so my dad and I got to watch Carsten. hehe. He wasn't too bad. Then I went into primary and conducted for the kids. It was a blast I really love them. I'm excited for the future when I get to teach kids.
Well tonight I though I would share my love for something.. that something is a someone.. Oh Jen knows how much love I have for this guy.. here he is..



His name is Jon Wolfe Nelson. He's probably the most attractive man on the planet.. The reason for the random post? I was once agian looking at pictures of him and well I thought I would share my love.
so anyways he's an ASL interpreter which is pretty much the bomb diggity. He is also an Actor. Anyways if I were to ever make my book into a movie this guy would play one of the main parts [Rylan].. He basically looks exactly like what I see in my head. It's pretty crazy because I didn't even know aobut him before I started writing..
haha.
Well, I hope you enjoyed the post tonight. and I really hope that you've fallen in love with him as much as I have. :D.

Sleep well tonight my lovelies. :D

<3 Katie Wan

Blow my mind..

I have trouble writing before midnight. I just don't think about it until it's too late. :D
Today I watched my nephew and Nieces. They sure are cute, especially when they're sleeping.
I've started my adventure in drawing. right now i'm mainly just copying and adding a few details here and there. I spent an hour sharpening colored pencils. It was lots of fun.. [sarcasm] My thumb is rather sore from spinning the stupid sharpener around. [yes it was a hand pumped on.. not and electric] My mom says there's a whole nother box.. Yay. maybe i'll do that tomorrow. :D.
Last night I found a video of someone playing the guitar on their Iphone.. holy geeze. I'm amazed.. I'm probably the last person in the world to realize they had that.. is shows you how behind times I am. I mean I wrote my books in notebooks for almost three years before I actually started typing them.
Anyways.. speaking of writing.. that's all I ever seem to talk about. I'm quite happy with where it's going and i'm become completely enthralled. I want nothing more but to sit in my pajamas and write all day. That's basically what I do anyways.. :D. Sorry if for the next little while I become a little distant.. I'm really really obsessed witht his. Ask Jen.. it's all I ever talk about. She's probably sick of it.
Uhmmm. Does anyone know a cool place to take pictures? I need to find some.. for pictures.. for people. hahaha. Yay

Well that was my day. I hope you are all sleeping well. Have a nice sunday tomorrow.

Tale as old as time...

Today Jen came over and we watche my production of Beauty and the Beast. At the end we decided Belle is really her.. Story of her life.. :D. She's fabulous.
Second: My dad was quite creepy in the play {which was good cause he was the bad guy.. good job dad!!}
and Lastly: We are positively in love with Chris Brunt [the beast]'s voice. He is fantabulous. Yup that's right.. FANTABULOUS.
I thought you all should know the excitement from the evening.

Be safe. Sleep Well. I love you.

La La la

I noticed today that when I wear my robe and big fuzzy slippers I look like the broken hearted girl in every romantic comedy.. :D..
I played Sims and Dragon Age today.. Allistair loves me.. :D woot face.
Uhmm.
Basically I have no life and that's okay. Jake's shingles are getting better. Yay for him. Basically I have a very boring life filled with video games.
I should get some writing done before I actually go to sleep. So I will make this post tonight very short.

Sleep Well. I love you.

A real life post.

I hate when this happens.. when things come between my friends and I.. My best friends. You would think that somehow I would be able to get over myself and just let them do as they please.. But no. I have a problem and that is trying to run my friends lives. I guess i'm sort of a contorl freak. Sometimes that can be a good thing. But when you start interfering with others lives that's where it gets bad. That happens to me all to often. I guess really I should learn that people are people and constantly they will disappoint me. I will lose people no matter how hard I try to keep them. Life continues to move whether I want to or not.
This isn't such a big deal.. more of just a brief moment of annoyance. I found myself sitting at home all day playing video games and only talking to three people all day.. [my family.]
Anyways.. Life's moving on.. I can't help it and you can't either. :D. I guess we'll all just have to hop on and enjoy the ride.

Have a good night. Sleep well. I Love you all.

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

I have addiction..

And that would be Video games. They are quite fun and I enjoyed playing them today. Robbie came over and we hung out. I sure have missed him.
Tomorrow I might be going to Pocatello.. but we found out that Jake has shingles.. poor thing. So if he stays home I might stay home with him. Shingles suck.. Luckily for him though he didn't get the pain aspect like I got when I had them. If you got the swine flu you should probably watch out for Shingles.. like no joke. People who got the swine flu are getting shingles.
Anwyays.. I'm watching some cheesy BBC series.. I sure do love them. I've been a sucker for old english romance crap. hehe. Maybe i'll write one of those books.. DOUBT IT! I don't understand a thing they say. :D
I finished editing last night and I must say.. Bravo to myself. I am quite proud of it. Ooh.. that guys cute.. Sorry i'm in between watching the series and writing this.. Uhmm. Random side bar.
I continued writing the sequel to my book today. Editing the first really gave me a boost in my writing. I was feeling a little tug of writers block.. BUT I refuse to believe in writers block.. SOO that wasn't what it was.

Anyways I hope you all had a wonderful day. I will be back tomorrow.. I love you all. Sleep well and be safe.

Manic Monday.

Today was a monday. Yay!
Nothing extra special happened today. Mainly I layed around and played the sims. My family and I had FHE together. We went shopping and got ice cream. That's where I saw jeff for the last time. :(. Jeff is leaving for boot camp. He has joined the Navy. Yay Jeff. He will have lots of fun. teehee. Probably not so much, but afterwards it will be worth it.
Tomorrow Robbie and I are going to hang out so hopefully I will have a lot more to talk about. I missed him while he was gone. :D. Anyways i'm not going to bore you with my lack of an exciting day.
I have a lot of editing to do still but the book is coming along nicely. Perhaps when i'm done I will continue writing the sequel. I've sorta stopped with all the holiday festivities and editing. :D.
I hope you all had a wonderful day back at work and school. I know I did. :D
I love you all. Stay safe on those ridiculous roads.

<3 Katie Wan.

Sunday Sunday Sunday.

I guess that I should actually look at the time before I do these. To me it is still Sunday, but according to the clock it is actually monday. I apologize I will make sure to pay more attention as the days go on. ;).
Tyler left today which was pretty sad. It was nice knowing that it was the last time. Perhaps in July I will be driving back from North Carolina with him. That would be the most epic road trip ever.
We took Carsten to church today where he head butted me about 12 times in the face. Then he escaped from Sunbeams only to be found by someone in the building and brought to me.. What a goof ball. :D. He's hard not to love.
Today was pretty uneventful. I did some editing and played on the sims. One of my ladies had twins, how exciting is that?
Editing is going quite well. While I read I forget that i'm supposed to be looking for mistakes and end up just reading it for fun. Deleting commas and adding periods becomes very tedious and boring quite fast.
The story itself is quite enthralling. I found myself being really upset after a sad part in the book. The one thing I don't like about writing is I don't ever get to read my novel for the first time. As I read I already know what's going to happen. I no longer have the element of surprise. ANYWAYS, I get a whole lot more out of writing than I do reading, so i'm not going to complain.
I've been listening to Trance music all day which has put me in a rather strange mood.
Well I believe it is quite late so I must head off to bed, and so should you. Have a wonderul day tomorrow... or today.. whatever it is.. I Love you.

Frosty.



Today Jake [my little brother] and I decided we'd appreciate the snow. We geared up and trecked out into the front yard to start on our new project. This snow man was one that we decided would be the best. :]. Together he and I rolled up some snow and created our friend Fredrick.
My grandmother live across the street from us so we decided it would be nice to do something nice for her. Jake and I found a big white poster board and wrote on it "We <3 You Grandma." we hung the sign around our friend Fredrick's neck.



ANYWAYS! My mom's birthday is on New Years, so we celebrated her birthday today. We had the whole family over which is always nice. Carsten and Addison [my nephew and neice] ran around the whole time and we watched them. They really are great little kids. Carsten is totally addicted Thomas the tank engine and Addison loves shoes. Appareantly so did I.
Today was full of fun and love. Tomorrow Tyler [my oldest brother. He's in the Marines] he leaves and goes back to North Carolina. It's sad to see him go but he will be back soon. He can't get shipped out again so he just gets to hang out for awhile until July then he's done.
I'm sad that everyone will be leaving soon. Christmas is always a wonderful time for me. Luckily this year, and for every other year until i'm out of school, I don't have to go back to school.
I've been editing my book and I've forgotten why I love it. I'm a fan of the action in it. Is it okay to be a fan of your own book? It's nice to go back and read through it to see where your characters started. Since the sequel there has been a lot of changes and it's nice to see where they started out. They were just babies once. :].
Jen and I are pen palling like it's world war II and i'm in the trenches in France. You know you live in Idaho when the only thing to do is pen pal someone you talk to daily. hehe. I love Jen and i'm glad she goes along with my crazy ideas. I sure do love her.
This week I will be spending time with my friends. I haven't seen many of you lately. This Christmas break I spent with my family. I became addicted to the game Dragon age and well, I remember why I love elves.
So basically what we've discovered today is that I am a complete nerd. It wasn't really a discovery it just kind of stuck out. :].
Well I suppose I should let you all go. If you actually read this, well then thank you. I hope you all had a lovely day and I will see you tomorrow.

New Years Resolutions.

Why hello there Blog spot. This year for a new years resolution I have decided to keep a daily blog/Journal. I'm not really sure how well that will go, but hey what's so wrong in trying. This will be my daily Blog that I use, well daily. I figured what's the use in just writing in a journal when everyone else could read it. Anyways, this is it. To start out this year I would like to start with my new year resolutions. Every year I say I'm not going to have any because they never seem to work out. This year they will be written and I can surely look them over daily to be reminded.

1.The first is to Love more. When I was younger loving everyone wasn't that hard, now that i'm older it's become a little more difficult. This year I want to learn to love everyone equally.
2. Become my own person. I thought last year I had myself all figured out, only to be hit with the fact that I was incredibly far off track. I will find myself this year through trial and error just like I have all my life. With this I'm going to learn all that I can and pick up new hobbies. I want to be educated in many different things and learn more. College will be a great experience for me and I will get to learn oh so very much. In the end I will be doing what I love [hopefully].
3. This third one is a little far fetched but it's a resolution. Get my book published. I've never been more passionate about anything in my life. This book has totally encompassed me and my whole life. Everything I do revolves around my writing. Stories are constantly circulating through my mind. I look around me and feed off of everything. If you truly know me you know how dedicated to writing I am. I sleep, breath, and eat writing. I live for my books and I live for stories. My book Silver Lining is the name of it [Yes I finally chose one] It's my most prized posession. Of course not many people will enjoy it due to it's controversial matter [Gay Superhero] I am wonderfully proud of what I have accomplished. I am so proud and people have been so receptive of it that I have started a sequel. ANYWAYS! Getting it published would be a dream come true.. become and rich and famous wouldn't be so bad either. ;].
4. This is probably the resolution I will work the hardes for. Become more active in the fight for Gay Rights. I know that many people don't feel that this is an important resolution. People [especially in idaho] don't believe that gays should have rights at all. I don't believe that way at all. I believe that humans should all be created equal no matter what. Whether it's their race, religion, or sexual orientation. The minute I see people being discriminated against I get rather angry. My best friends are gay most of my friends are gay actually and I want to fight for their rights with all my heart. So I am going to dive head first right into the activism of Gay rights. I hope that some of you realize that great cause this is and join me.

These are my resolutions this year. There aren't many because I know it will take me all year to get close to accomplishing any of them. With your help and my determination I am sure that I will be able to accomplish all of these and more.

Alright, this is my daily blog and well i'm Katie Wan John Silver. Thanks you for reading.

[I sound like I just ended a news show.. AWESOME!]
