Oh, bow to the purple. Yes, I finally verified my novel, and I'm now a five-time NaNoWriMo winner. Yay.
We get DE Test the Second tomorrow. It'll be due next Monday, safely after everything due Thursday and after the TGIO party on... Friday, I think?
You know, after all that novel-writing, I've been feeling a little dry lately. Not dry skin, dry-minded. I need something to wet my brain a little and make me think some more. Or maybe the Internet is having its brain-drying influence on me. I remember that week when I actually didn't have as much Internet as usual because I couldn't figure out that I could just unscrew the cable/Internet/phone box and just find the internet cord and plug it back in. It was worth it, though. I did a crazy amount of writing in Dr. Nbook, even finishing one and starting another one. I'm hardly halfway through that one, though, and now I have six blank ones waiting for me to write in them. Six? When am I going to get time to write in them? Oh, right.
So I may be pulling myself away from the Internet in the near future to spend some quality time with Dr. Nbook. Oh wait, I was going to attempt to be more social too. How am I supposed to do both? Aren't those two just a tad bit contradictory? I guess we could make some sort of group journal. One of my friends in middle school and I did that. It didn't last very long because we didn't really want to keep it in the summer. Oh well.
I found myself thinking about friendship yesterday, though. Jeffrey had his birthday party yesterday, and of course he had a bunch of friends over. He has had most of the same friends since kindergarten. Now granted, he hasn't started college yet, and he did stay in the same school system his entire life. Still, to stay in basically the same group of close friends his entire life is amazing. Well, compared to me, at least. I hardly stayed in the same group of friends for two years. I think I kept the same close friends for... about two years, maybe, before falling into different groups. I think I just have some really messed-up group dynamics or something.
I'll chew on that one for awhile. Mmm, group dynamics.
