A Story About A Girl

Short story #1

Intro: I have been trying for days to come up with a short story idea. I really suck at it. I want to start out with something I am comfortable with. I love anything to do with ghosts. I love kids’ stories, especially pre-teens. I figured I would combine the two, but still, I couldn’t really come up with anything so I used a random first line generator and what came up was “The key to communicating with Aliens was starting me right in the face”. Perfect, change Aliens to ghosts and we have a story…

The key to communicating with ghosts was staring me right in the face. I took a step back and shook my head. Could I really be seeing this? Was there really a ghost in front of me? Was it really trying to communicate with me after all these years of trying? Was this seriously going to happen? These were all the questions I asked myself as I stared back at it. Hesitantly I took a step forward. [...]  READ MORE

I like to write

I have always enjoyed writing and I love to type. I enjoy sitting in front of a computer, my fingers flying over the keyboard. It’s both soothing and therapeutic for me. There is something about the rhythm of it. Something about the sound the keys make, something about the words forming sentences, something about the idea of communicating your thoughts and ideas that really appeals to me. Obviously, in my last post, I talked about how I want to go back to school and I want to get my bachelor of science degree in computing and information systems minoring in web development and on a side note I think I want to write a bit more as a hobby and as a part of my blogging.

I would like to try and tackle maybe some book reviews if I can manage to sit still long enough to finish a book and not lose my concentration. I also want to try writing some short stories. I have a really good imagination for the most part. I just have a hard time conveying what I am imagining into words sometimes. However, that being said I really want to try and get back into it. I used to write stories as a kid. I even illustrated some of them. It’s amazing how things get lost over the years. I don’t mean physically losing the stories and illustrations, but rather losing the ability over the years to use my imagination the way I used to and to put it into words and make something creative out of it. [...]  READ MORE

What do I want to do with my life?

A lot has happened in the last month. I have not felt much like posting or doing anything really. I have been really struggling with a lot of stuff. The good news is we have our car back we got it just before Christmas. I am driving again and doing well with it and starting to enjoy it again. I am pretty much back to where I was pre-accident during the day when driving. At night however is still a whole other story. I driven quite a bit at night to pick Edward up but I am so nervous. I figure though that I just need to do it and eventually I will gain that confidence back. I am doing well in that respect.

As for the anxiety and depression I was put on Cymbalta and it is helping. I am now at 60mg and the side effects are low and tolerable. Mostly dry mouth. I am not sleeping at all but wasn’t before starting it so it’s not from the Cymbalta. I am really struggling with being restless at night and being in pain and uncomfortable. I started physio as I mentioned in a previous post but only got to do a few sessions. I had applied again for short-term on the advise of my employer and my doctor but was denied. Short-term in denying me did suggest a gradual return to work so they set that up. [...]  READ MORE
