So I’ve decided not to apologise for my inability to update regularly anymore. I have a busy schedule. I’m at university now and living on campus (best decision). I’ll be applying for Vet Science next year, so *fingers crossed*.
In the last few months I’ve made new friends, had to say goodbye to almost all of them (international students that were only here for a semester), made new ones, etc. I wanted a social year and got one.
I go home every few weeks to see family and give them a hand on the property. Elmo is huge! Fred and Heidi are shooting up too. They’ve all left the house yard now, so I have to go for a drive to see them. We had another grain poddy (too late to bottle feed) called Indie, but she disappeared about a month ago. We still haven’t found her. From left to right: Heidi, Fred, Indie, and Elmo.
Finding time to write, read, or exercise has been a challenge. I study a little too hard, and have to remember to take a break sometimes. HFI is in the editing stages now. I’m terrible for underwriting, so there’s heaps to do before I’m willing to share it with the world.
I started planning for NaNoWriMo yesterday, so I guess I’ll be doing that again this year, haha.
Oh, I’m learning how to touch type. I don’t know why I never tried to learn it before. It takes a bit of focus at the moment, but I’ve gone from 11wph (without looking at the keyboard) to 28wph (with 98% accuracy) in four weeks. Keeping in mind that I’m doing this on top of studying, that’s not too shabby.
I also found a few perks of living on campus. For one, the unlimited internet is nice. Back at home we had 15GB between five people to last a month. I also get access to the university database (and there are HEAPS of books on fiction writing for free). Finally, I don’t have to cook. Uni food can be gross, but there’s always a salad option or peanut butter/Nutella available.
I think that’s it.
Anyway, I should get back to studying =P
Currently reading: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas (Everytime I start reading it I get the urge to write, which is why it’s taking so long).
