We have a new puppy and I'm struggling to housebreak her. I'll post more soon when I am not up every 3 hours!

Yes, I officially reached my limit. Maybe I shouldn't post this or make any decisions when I'm having a bad day, but it doesn't seem to be stopping me!

I always bend my schedule around for everyone else. I'm a people pleaser and I like to be accommodating. Unfortunately, this often leads to people just assuming I am there at their every whim and it results in me becoming frustrated and resentful.

No more. I am going to plan my day and if it clashes with someone else's plans, then they are going to have to shuffle their schedule. Maybe that is selfish of me, but at this point I need to take some of my time back. I'm sleeping awful, eating awful, and miserable all the time. Besides, I'm called selfish no matter what I do, so who cares right?

If people really do care, they'll be considerate enough to work with me instead of assuming I'm always available. If not...I guess I'll find out.

I've set quite a few lofty goals for this year. I know I have to be practical and realistic, but if I can finally manage my time, this is doable. I know it is.


Fanfic - By the end of February, I am going to finish my two WIPs - a h/c with Dean and another wing!fic for my Playing the Angel series. Throughout the year I will post more parts of the series.

Original writing - I hit a slump for a while, but the end of last year started to pick up. I sold two short stories to two different anthologies and my short historical came into print. My main genre is contemporary fantasy/some paranormal, so I am aim to breakthrough in one of those categories with a novella at a major pub. I will also revise my novel and submit to agents.


Weight: I am going to lose 10-15 pounds by the beginning of April
Exercise: I am going to have a decent exercise program going for 3 days a week.
Illness: Getting sick really threw my goals out of whack. I am going to take vitamins each day and eat better to see if that keeps major illness away
Doc Appts: I am going to reschedule all the appointments I had to cancel because I was caring for my dog.

I have some other more personal goals to meet as well, but these are the big ones. I've already decided to double my reading, and that is going well too. Yay!

I've been saying it for a while, but I would love to post more and comment more on my LJ. I think it's time for me to seriously start using filters.

Anyway, that's it. Have a great day :)

I was just heading by from the pharmacy and in line at a drive-thru for some food when I heard a very familiar, distinctive roar.


I turned my head to see a black Impala (different year/look) chug by me with two guys in it.

Huh. Okay then.

I'm on my way home and what do I see? Same car chugging past me on a different street.

Weird day.
moonshayde: (Embraces)
Okay, I hate subjects. Anyway, just let Big Guy out in the backyard and I brushed him. Man, does he SHED. I could have brushed him for hours, but that wasn't going to happen. He started to get restless and rolls around and pushes at me with his legs. He wasn't so bad today though. He just loves to be brushed so much that he can't hold back his excitement.

He's back to a lovely black color again. No much white undercoat poking through.

Little Guy watched from the deck the entire time. He hates being brushed.

I tried to get him to play, but he wasn't in the mood. He's up there in age and doesn't run like he used to. I'll have to see if I can take him on walks. I just don't know how to do that considering how hyper and OCD he gets.

Soon, I'll be a little more active on LJ. You have been warned ;)

But I think I'll be finally posting some thoughts about Lost this season, as well as Smallvile and Supernatural. I haven't talked about my impressions all that much since I find fandom brings me down more often than not lately. And while I have a nice flist, I get super emotional after watching a show I'm invested in, so the distance before posting has done wonders LOL

I hope most of you have been enjoying your shows.

I may also post a few snippets of the fic I have been working on (though sadly none recently) but I'll be getting back to that soon. I want to get back to some art as well. I miss those both.

And my class is DONE so I am very happy LOL
moonshayde: (Headlights)
So I got my haircut yesterday because I couldn't stand it anymore. I go to a cheapo place because of the lack of funds situation, but she usually does a good job.

Not yesterday.

My hair is a mess. Mess in the way that makes you want to cry. *sigh* At least it will grow back.

No new fic, but I did go ahead and update my Supernatural Fanfic Master List here on LJ. I haven't done my website yet. Though, at least my SG-1 fic is all caught up on my website now. I think.

I really should try to write today.
moonshayde: (Egypt)
What have I been doing over the past few days? I'm buried in work, of course. Lots and lots of work.

But when I was ready to start punching things, I decided to go for a workout.

I tried belly dancing.

OMG, most fun EVER.

This something I will have to continue to explore.

In other news, I hate that my Thursday class gets out in the middle of SPN. I'd much rather it get after or before because walking into the living room in the middle of the show sucks.

However, my mother apparently has hated tonight's episode with a passion I didn't know existed. Crap. That bad? Now I am sad :(

I guess I'll watch it later and catch up on SV this weekend.

I did get to see the preview for next week's episode. Uh oh. Is it May 1st yet?
moonshayde: (Take Charge)
I hope everyone has/had a Happy New Year! Let's hope 2008 is a better year, yes? I think a lot of us could use it.

Also, a very happy birthday to all my January birthday flisters. I don't make it online every single day, so I want to wish you a good one now.

And now for New Year's Resolutions. I know some people hate them and some people like them. They help me to focus even if I fail every single year ;)

New Year's Resolutions

01. Eat healthy/get fit: I've broken this down into smaller goals. I'd love people to join me.
02. Write: The current goal is 500 words a day, original fic. I'll move it up as I progress.
03. Take breaks: Participate when I want. Fandom should be a hobby, not an obligation.
04. Organize: Probably the most important. I need to clear my space as well as my head.
05. Worry less(LOL!): This one I'll probably fail, but I will try. Baby steps.
06. Publish: Get something significant published in 2008.
07. Real Life hobby: Somehow, I will find a hobby where I can meet people. Don't. Like. Bars.
08. Don't let fandom irk me: I still let it sometimes. It's supposed to be fun.
09. LJ fun: Comment more.
10. Less negative: I want to post more on the good things and less on the bad. :)

This year, I am going to try and break all these broad goals into smaller ones (e.g. lose five pounds by the end of the January, write 500 words, clean one corner of my room at a time). I feel good today, and I want to maximize that as much as possible.

I've also finally friended a bunch of you who have friended me a while ago. Often it's just an oversight because I forget, but sometimes I like to have a chance to look through your LJs if I don't know you from anywhere. If I haven't friended you, it still may be an oversight, though I don't tend to friend back if you don't post in your LJ. It's nothing personal. It's just I come for the fandom, and stay for the people.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to a better 2008 and I hope the same for you!

I have decided that I am satisfied. I am not going to talk about the finale anymore (for now). I said what I had to say, some of in jest and some of it seriously, but in the end I enjoyed the episode.

SG-1 is over and I enjoyed the ride :) Now, time for movies *grins*

In the meantime, I have a lot on my plate. I have tons of WIPs to finish and two insane ficathons I signed up for. Not panicking. Nope.

I also plan on letting the series sit for a while before I do a complete rewatch. It's all still too fresh for me right now and I want to really enjoy it when I do. I'm very happy many of you will be staying around to chat with me in fandom.

Outside of fandom, I have my novel and some short stories I'm working on. I'm trying to get over self imposed writer's block and self doubt, but it's tough. I need to stop thinking so much and get to work. I still feel good about the ideas. It's just RL is tough and I need to learn time management.

And I'm going to be more dedicated in planning time for me, even if it ticks other people off. Because I need to come first sometimes :)
moonshayde: (Run)
Oh man. My asthma kicked in after being dormant for quite some time so I had to take my inhaler. (Good thing I had a new one ordered as a backup.) And body is so not used to it. I'm jumpy and jittery and shaky. Usually, that only happens when I have had to have breathing treatments in the past, not with the inhaler.

I feel like I am going to jump out of my skin *creeps*

On the bright side, my latest SG-1 fanfic is in betaland/editting (thanks!) and an even greater accomplishment is that my very first horror short story has emerged from its final edit in tact :) Well, from my final edit. If it does get accepted, then I may have to toy with it again. But I'm proud of it. I still don't think it has a good shot of getting accepted since I'm not very good with short stories, but I keep trying anyway. Never thought I'd write a horror fic, though. So that's been submitted and now I just have to wait and see.

But no time to just sit back over finishing. Off to the next short story and the fanfic I use to escape in between :)

ETA: Yay, the betaing is done! I'll be posting the fic shortly. But right now, I am going to watch some Farscape. I may finish off S3. I just finished I Yensch, You Yensch and I'm about to start Into the Lion's Den: Lambs to the Slaughter. I'll post my thoughts later.

ETA 2: OMG! I love Harvey!

Thanks for everyone being so great about the non-spoiler issues I have with SG-1 :)

Speaking of SG-1...Scifi is playing some eps tonight. I'm actually considering watching. I've been avoiding SG-1 lately. Not because I hate it. Just because I am enjoying the break and waiting for the new eps to start in April. Once the spring comes around, I plan on rewatching all the eps from the beginning and hoping I can look at them with new perspectives. But to do that, I can't watch them every day LOL

So...tempting. Don't know yet. I may just pop in another DVD while I delay the SG watching. I have Farscape, MacGyver, Smallville and Supernatural to pick from. Oh and X-Files, but I am delaying that like SG-1.

We'll see. I'm not a TV watcher, but now I have so many choices I don't know what to do!
