CHICAGO TARDIS CON = AMAZING
Had an amazing day at Chicago Tardis!! Met and got a picture with Freema Agyemon, who was super nice and I even had a (very) short conversation with her. Then a friend of mine working the photo booth got my picture signed for free by her <3 Then I met Paul Mcgann through the same friend and he literally stood up from his signing and gave me a hug. He was so sweet and pleasant, even though you could tell he was tired. Ended everything with listening to a panel made up of Paul Mcgann, Peter Davison, and Colin Baker. Daleks, k-9, cosplay, companions, and doctors. Today was the best!

… a lot of their receipts, directions, and other things that they print off their home computer is on the back of already printed old poetry and prose
Collateral by Ellen Hopkins - a Book Review
I rate this novel 3.5 out of 5
Ashley is stuck in a game of waiting. Waiting for news of Cole. Waiting for him to come home. Waiting for him to be taken away again. This is what happens when you decide to fall in love with a marine; it is the path in life you agree to trudge. And Ashley has excepted and embraced this reality, or mostly at least. Now however she is starting to change her mind about some things. Her job, her Master’s program, her future career, and now Cole are all looking a lot less permanent. Can two people stay in love when they are hardly together and growing apart every day? Ashley must face these questions and the consequences of her own choices as the story of collateral unfolds.
Nano Day 27: 50,002 words!!!!!!!!!
I did it!!!! I met the nano goal a full three days early!
My novel is half done, but I never felt better about things. I will keep writing as much as I can before the days are up and then keep going until the sequel to my first book is finished! I never thought I could do it and I made so many excuses not to try. But I did it and I know I can do it again. I am so happy right now. I am the biggest fangirl of my own story, and I don’t even care how sad that is.
Requiem by Lauren Oliver - Book Review
I rate this book 3.5 out of 5
Lena is back in the Wilds, safe for the moment, but what was once a place of refuge is now anything but. The Wilds have never been kind to the uncureds who hid in it’s wooded depths, but now there is more than weather and animals to fear: cureds are coming and they are determined to wipe the infected out. In their little group it’s anything but easy, as Lena tries to stay alive long enough to fight for the right to love. But things would be a lot less complicated if Lena even knew which boy she was fighting for; Julian who followed her into the Wilds with nothing but blind faith and patient affection, or Alex, her first love brought back from the dead who wants nothing to do with her.

Ok, I got this up a little late, but I haven’t gone to sleep so I refuse to acknowledge a change in the day. What’s that you say? That can’t be? I can’t just not acknowledge a day because it will happen regardless? Back ye heathen naysayers!! Bask in the truth. If I stay up all night there is no tomorrow, it will always be today!!!!!!!!!!!
alright ignoring that
