D is for...

Wow, I got some catching up to do...
Here we go:


Deadlines
I'm sure we have all had some experience with these. Right? They are essential to, well... life. I hate saying it, but think for a second. It's pretty accurate. And it seems like writers, authors, novelists (you can choose your word), well they totally depend on it. So, as far as deadlines are concerned, I'm not the best writer out there. I really hope I make up for it with what I am writing. But it's hard to say. I'm not even half-way through with the book I was supposed to finish last Tuesday (aka: my birthday). Well, I am making progress. Slowly, but surely, I'm getting some scenes in. So I guess that counts for something. How about you? How are you with deadlines?


Depression
Oh how I hate this subject. Why, exactly? Because I can't figure out how it applies to me. I can't figure out if I am depressed or not. And for whatever reason, that is really important to me. A really good friend of mine said that she's been noticing it more than usual. (Background: Occasionally, in the past, I'd get into these really weird depressed moods. They'd be really spread out.) Well, now they are much more frequent. Like, every few days, if not every day. And I'm not sure how to take it. Because being in those "moods" (as I call it), I feel, well, depressed. Or, more accurately, I'd feel *nothing*. Like, at all. And when I get over it, I think, *my God, what is wrong with me*. And then I'll wonder how the heck I could've been that *down* on myself. I mean, my self-esteem isn't all that great. But when I'm in those moods? It's like I beat myself up for nothing, everything, anything. And I'm not all that sure what that means. Am I really depressed? Or just overreacting?


Drops of Jupiter by Train
[This is a song that I really love. :)
Hope you like it, too.]

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's a time to change, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey

But tell me, did you sail across the sun?
Did you make it to the Milky Way
To see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated?

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star?
One without a permanent scar
And then you missed me
While you were looking for yourself out there?

Now that she's back from that soul vacation
Tracing her way through the constellation, hey
She checks out Mozart while she does Tae-Bo
Reminds me that there's room to grow, hey

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
I'm afraid that she might think of me as
Plain ol' Jane told a story about a man
Who was too afraid to fly so he never did land

But tell me, did the wind sweep you off your feet?
Did you finally get the chance
To dance along the light of day
And head back to the Milky Way?

And tell me, did Venus blow your mind?
Was it everything you wanted to find?
And then you missed me
While you were looking for yourself out there

Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you
Even when I know you're wrong?

Can you imagine no first dance, freeze-dried romance
Five-hour phone conversation
The best soy latte that you ever had, and me?

But tell me, did the wind sweep you off your feet?
Did you finally get the chance
To dance along the light of day
And head back toward the Milky Way?

But tell me, did you sail across the sun?
Did you make it to the Milky Way
To see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated?

And tell me, did you fall for a shooting star?
One without a permanent scar
And then you missed me
While you were looking for yourself?

And did you finally get the chance
To dance along the light of day?
And did you fall for a shooting star?
Fall for a shooting star?
And now you're lonely looking for yourself out there

  1. Hey! I've always wondered what the lyrics to that song were. Woo-Hoo! Now I know *dances*

    As for Deadlines: If it's a real Deadline then I'm super good at meeting it. If I make a deadline up for myself. Ha! Totally don't.

    But don't worry. Most people don't ever write a book even though they say they want to. You've already beat a huge percentage of the population just by actually trying and not giving up. You can make it! I believe! *pumps fist in the air*

    And I don't know where you come from religiously, and I know Religion can be sticky sometimes, but when I'm feeling depressed I find a verse and tack it up on my ceiling or wall and that usually helps me. If you're not a fan of the Bible maybe find a song quote or something. Maybe that would help??

    Hope you have a good day. And hope you had a GREAT birthday with loads of Cake.
