So if you look down below you'll see that I won NaNoWriMo. I actually beat it on the 7th day, and I could have kept going but then suddenly stuff happened and I pushed my way to 70k words. In all honestly it ended up being 4 stories, all but about 3 scenes, being all angst. I might post it eventually onto my writing blog, megaranoelle.wordpress.com, but only time will tell about that, I keep writing new things all the time too.

Big news though? I'm a radio personality! On the internet! TheForce925.net! DJ Megara broadcasting live on air on Mondays/Tuesdays and Saturdays! 9pm (Mon) to 1am (Tues) PT, Midnight to 4am (Tues) ET and 5am to 9am (Tues) GMT! That show will be the Oriental Pop/Rock Block! Playing music from Japan, Korea, China, etc.... It's gonna be awesome. And on Saturday you can catch me 2am to 6am PT, 5am to 9am ET, and 10am to 2pm GMT. But each hour in that show will be the 'Delightfully Intriguing Trivia' segment, where I give you trivia of... intriguing... facts. Anyway, the point is that you should all go and listen to it (Starting Jan 3rd at midnight ET) because it's gonna be awesome, even if you don't listen to my show. We play just about Everything, quite literally.

Let's see, what else? Oh yes, I'm hoping to finish by February to finish an afghan I'm working on. The afghan you ask? A totally custom planned Legend of Zelda afghan, old school Zelda too. It's all tunisian crochet, which goes a little bit slower for me, but it's worth it cause you get a crisp look. I was influenced by this Mario afghan, which is amazing. I have some sneak peeks of what I have done so far, and when i get my first couple of playlists complete for my radio shows i shall be going back to complete some more squares!
Are there pictures behind this cut?Collapse )

Again, the time has come. The momentous time of the year where I tackle writing 50,000 words in 30 days. And this year i have endeavored to challenge two people in a word war!



With my luck I'll be way ahead and then I'll keep getting called into work, and that just won't be fun for my wordcount, fun for my bank account though. Also not fun for my wordcount is my goal to find a second job too.

Oh well, back to building a buffer of words before I have to call in and see if I have to work.

Wow, six months later I update. And I guess a lot of stuff has happened, a lot of stressful stuff too. But I think I'll just like glance over most of that stuff and try to focus on the good stuff. First let's glance over bad stressful stuff.

I need to move the hell out, it's getting really bad. I can't find a job, so I have no money. No money is a problem in itself. My family apparently can't do anything without me nearby and free because the rest of my family doesn't want to be reliable.

Good stuff!
I went to World Steam Expo Memorial Day weekend in Dearborn, and apparently there were at least 1000 people there over the 4 day expo. It was AMAZING CRAZY FUN. I made my own costumes, and some costumes for my friend, out of my own patterns. And now I'm selling them on Etsy, VerdelliAshmore. SHAMELESS PLUG!

I will be working at the Michigan Renaissance Festival again, Silverleaf Costumes. Also.... I'll be working at GEN CON!!!! I couldn't be more excited.

My brother and sister-in-law got married on the 12th, and I'm so happy for them. It was a really nice ceremony and they did a wonderful job on the reception and planning.

Annnnnnnnd, I'm taking a break from school, to get my life on track. And right now I'm watching E3 coverage while working on Another novel idea. I think I need to focus on getting one done and submitting it, but I'll get there.

Um.... I can't really remember if there's anything else, but I think I'll try to update more often now, and that includes finishing up some fanfics. I was thinking about those the other night, and I'm gonna get back to those, I promise.

I walked in for a tour on Thursday (the 10th) and I walked out an accepted student. I walked in Friday (the 11th) with a financial aid meeting, and walked out with a class shedule and some papers to for mom to sign, and $12,000 in debt! I'M A STUDENT AT ITT TECHNICAL INSTITUTE!!!!!!! I start classes on Wednesday.

I'm paid up from now until the end of September then I re-apply for my student loans, blah blah. All my books nad tools and fees are included int he tuition, even my cap and gown when I graduate. They make my schedule for me so I'm not taking any classes I don't need, and I still go full time and I'll Know when I'll grdaute. Classes won't cancel, I just tell them my class time preference, and they try to work around that.

I don't have to fill out the FAFSA anymore, cause they'll do it for me, I just give them the info they need to update it, and take out the hassel for me. I'm in the Visual Communications Associates program, and in 8 quarters I'll get that, and when I enter the Bachelor's program I get something like 20% off tuition because I continued at ITT Tech. I'll then enter into the Digital Entertainment and Game Design program.

My schedule looks like this:
Wednesday: Introduction to Deisgn - 9am - 1:20pm
Strategies for the Technical Professional - 1:30pm - 5:50pm

Thursday: Problem Solving - 9am - 12:24pm

and that's it! I'm so excited. Now I just need a job, maybe somewhere int he middle of my drive, and to move out, and to be able to pay back what I owe on shit, lol. I also need to try and get my teacher to let me take my exam early so I can go to class this Wednesday.... Here's hoping!

I really don't remember the last time I posted, but here I am. Updates first. I won NaNo by the hair of my chin. It was really frustrating being Co-ML because all of the RL stuff going on at home. Major cleaning overhaul before we face inspection, stress frustrating me to the brink of sanity, and still no job.

I have now pulled out some of the stops looking for a job. I would say all, but I'm not good at playing the name game, or the whole connections thing. I need to move the hell Out. My insurance is killing me, and on Thursday I am apparently going to take a tour of ITT Tech in Flint. Digital Entertainment and Game Design. I have to rethink my classes at Delta, but I dunno anymore. This is the program I've been looking for honestly, and now that I have backups I know what I'm finally gonna do, and it all revolves around computers. Yay!

I had planned on moving to Baltimore but with this degree I'm going for who knows if I'll get a job out there. If I still really wanted to I could move out there, because there is a campus 30 minutes away from Baltimore, about the same distance from where I am right now. Bah!

Life is kicking me in the ass royally lately, and it's getting old. I just need something to help me out at ITT Tech. Maybe without the constant bad luck that's been thrown at me lately Ill be able to get my shit together and get everything on track..... Hopefully.

So NaNoWriMo rapidly approaches (not fast enough if you ask me) and I find that this year I have my idea already and I'm actually having trouble trying to Stop myself from writing it. Once again I'm doing fanficton. I'm also Co-ML of the Tri-Cities and just had a blitz with my other ML and we think we're set for NaNo, mostly. Even set up a twitter account for it. But what I find myself really wanting to do is write a bunch of prequels to set up my story, and technically it wouldn't be breaking NaNo's rules.

So let's see, I'm Co-ML, and I've still got..... thre? CSI Miami fanfics to work on and finish, and I want to start come NCIS fanfic. I do already have another NCIS fanfic started on another site. Then I signed up for an NCIS contest thingy.... and I'm considering another FanFic challenge. This is of course topped with my classes and getting a new car, and finding a job, and getting money, and finding a way to move out come New Years. And waiting for the news that my cousin had her baby, and my nephew's first birthday in a couple days.

I'm pretty sure that I can add some more stress to all this, no problem. I'm pretty sure that not too long after writing this I will be working on my fanfics, because it's been a while since I've just typed and I need to get back into that habit before NaNo starts or I will fail, and I can't do that! Not when I won this year. Last year started my winning streak.

If you couldn't tell I like getting involved in large group things. I'm a paradox.

Also still waiting to her from the boy, although he did get friendly with me last week, in a good way that made me feel really good. I need more of that.... And my family isn't really supportive of anything that I wanna do and it's pissing me off. They don't like to talk about things, and I do. Rwarg family!
