I suppose now is as good a time as any to post again. I’m so glad it is the weekend. I have had a rough week of work. We painted seven apartments this week and somehow that wasn’t fast enough. Darn ‘stods! Anyway, I am ready to just sit down to a book or something. I’m working through a really interesting part of my book right now and it’s not flowing out of me like I thought it would when I started it on tuesday. It seems the early morning at work is not a good time to have a brilliant book idea. Oh well!
In other news, the long awaited wedding is less than a week away. Am I ready for it? No! Does that really matter? No! Will I invest some time into not making a fool of myself on the dance floor? Heck yes!! We went laser questing for Daniel’s bachelor party and John won the ironman game. The prize was a free ironman game the next week. Before that game, they had movie trivia for 2 for one passes. Our group won all four of them. Basically, we made out like bandits.
About a week ago, I got a bed. My roommate, Jared, gave me his when he moved, so for the past week or so, I’ve been getting better sleep, or at least I’ve been sleeping in less bone-numbing positions. At first, it felt weird because I’d been sleeping on the floor for so long. It was almost too comfortable that first night.
This is the crazy interesting thing I’m been thinking about in relation to my book. I want to use previous experiences as a case study for answering the question: “What do you think of destiny? Is it what you make of it or is it preplanned?” I mean that in terms of the major decisions or events in one’s life. Do one’s decisions really influence or change an outcome, a destiny? Obviously no one can help me unlock the dialogue of this for my story but you can weigh in with thoughts and perspectives.
