note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint.

:: a few notes ::

1. The random NAZI is because I was trying to tell my cat to get off the table. True story.

2. This was when NaNoWriMo was still happening

Trust me, I know what's happening with NaNo now. More on that later.

3. New blog design. Check it out.

4. I hope you're all doing well. 
Hopefully I'll feel up to posting on this dear old blog soon. :)


  1. Random NAZI should be added to our Tea Spitter's vocabulary. It should be used whenever someone is distracting us from our goal.


  2. The new blog design is completely GORGEOUS!!! I love it!

    I look forward to hearing how your NaNo went. ^_^ I cannot believe it's already over. November went by so quickly!

    1. Thanks so much, Lauriloth! Good to hear from you. Your comment made me smile.

      Indeed! It did go by very fast. I look forward to posting about my NaNo! Did you end up doing it yourself as well?

    2. I did do NaNo, indeed. ^_^ I had a wonderful one! Still scrambling around trying to actually finish my novel though. Hoping to have it done by New Year's...hopefully. Eheh.

  3. Ooh, Sky, I dearly love your new blog design! :)
