I got a new laptop!

gratuitous picture of my face
Yep, this lady got a brand new laptop courtesy of the love and generosity of my wonderful boyfriend.  I am so excited! I have missed having a usable laptop to work on. Desktops are nice but I like to be able to write/blog/tumblr/watch hulu anywhere in the house I feel like it. Plus I can take it with me places (you know if I want places.)

I have been having lots of fun personalizing everything and getting used to using Windows 8 as I have been using 7 for quite some time. The apps threw me off at first but now I really kind of dig it, mostly for the 8tracks and mahjong apps that I installed, haha.

On top of playing around with my new computer I am trying to get my writing done as we are in the final week of Nanowrimo -only a few more days! Currently (as in right now while I'm typing this and before I go back to work on it) I am at 41.6k words out of the necessary 50k. So close! Although even when I hit 50k I won't be anywhere close to finished with the novel. Right now I'm probably half-ish the way through, maybe less. I tend to write my novels kind of long and slim it down in the editing process.

Aaaand Thanksgiving is this week for me and my American readers. I am going to be eating with my grandfather and some of my family, which I haven't really done in a few years. I'm not super close to a lot of my family but I love my grandfather and am happy to get to spend some time with him.

Welp, this has been a random update about my life. Hope everyone is having a good week!

  1. Hooray for a new laptop! And best wishes for the final leg of Nanowrimo!

    Happy early Thanksgiving! :)


  2. CONGRATS!!! New technology is drool-worthy! Have an absolutely heartwarming Thanksgiving tomorrow, lady!

    1. Thanks dear, I hope your Thanksgiving was excellent as well :)

  3. Congrats on the new laptop and OMG! You're so close to reaching the 50k mark! I'm somewhere in the 15k area right now but I haven't uploaded into the word counter. I just can't bring myself to do it, for some reason.
    Well done on your novel so far! That's a lot to be proud of!

    1. Thanks so much dear! I can't believe I have written so much, haha. Good luck with your novel as well :)


Thank you so much for your comments! I love hearing from my readers and your support means a lot to me!
