I've struggled with asthma most of my life. I had bad asthma attacks in my sleep as a kid (under the age of 10, might I add). My parents would come in and sit me up, help me relax etc. Strangely enough, I only remember one of them. (Creepy!) I was on my knees and up against the wall, wheezing, then I turned and my parents shadows were in the doorway, and that's all I remember.

Lately I've been walking more for endurance and stuff. I know there's not a cure yet for asthma, but I figured why not try to get my lungs in the best shape I can despite the asthma. And I'll confess that, at first, the walks were tiring. Sometimes I did have to take a puff or two of my inhaler afterwards.

But lately, I've been coming home feeling better. Not so out of breath or tired. A good sign! This is quite encouraging.

I'm not sure how I *got* the asthma. I was heavily vaccinated as a child (no longer, thank goodness) and I have had a variety of allergy, asthma, and hormone issues. Jessica had bad health issues as a young child, but the only thing she has to deal with now is severe nosebleeds (which she hasn't had in a while). TJ and Gracie weren't vaccinated, and they're very healthy.....I don't really want to get into the vaccine argument, so I'll stop there. xD

Anyways, I'm determined to not let asthma stop me. I've danced for nearly 8 years and have been successful with it (aka not collapsing from being out of breath xD). I hope that in my lifetime, someone will find a cure from asthma, but until then I'm going to strive towards getting my lungs in better shape.

I really need to figure out which projects I'll be doing for NaNoWriMo. I know I'll be doing Do Onto Others and some Doctor Who fics, but that's not going to get me up to 300k! I. Need. More. Story. Ideas.
so that I can do a bit of prep for them.

Anyways, we went out to a pond today to let the younger siblings feed the geese. I brought my notebook along and did brainstorm-y stuff for Do Unto Others. It was nice to brainstorm somewhere else besides the house. xD

How you do prepare, or are you a pantser?

It's been a week since I've posted. How glorious. :P

My laptop gave out on me Sunday or Monday. It kept freezing during boot-up, even when attempting to boot up in Safe Mode. Today, I let it attempt to boot up today and left it alone for a couple of hours. Imagine my surprise when I came back and the welcome screen was pulled up!!

*hopes that talking about that won't jinx anything*

Anyways, I wanted to talk about NaNoWriMo. It's 34 more days!! And as usual, I haven't decided on which projects I'll be doing. xD (I'm lacking in story ideas that I like.)

Oh yes, I said projects. For NaNo, I decided to do 10k a day. It didn't dawn on me until a few minutes after my crazy decision that it means I'll be writing 300k that month.

300,000 words.

The most I've ever written in a month is 85k. I've never considered shooting for such a high goal.

God only knows if I'll make it or not. I'd be happy if I reach 100k and over. xD

*cheers to my ambitious self*

*slams head into wall and cries because INSANITY*

I was stupidly tired last night. I fell asleep around 9:30/10:00, then woke up around 10:30 and couldn't fall back asleep until after 1:45. asdfghjkl Then I woke up this morning dizzy and sick to my stomach until I ate something. Weird stuff.

Anyways, I didn't get any writing done yesterday. There was just too much to do (and I got 6 or 6 & a half hours sleep) and yeah, stupidly tired. I'm not sure how much I'll get done today, because of THINGS. But the effort's worth it.

Now I'm wipe my bloody nose, because it's been bloody for a week at least and I just UGH

Four days since I've blogged.


Bad me.

Wouldn't have happened if I had a Tumblr.

Check my Twitter (nanogeekette) if I don't post here enough. ;P

That's it, I'm going to craft an argument (not a mean one :P) to convince my parents to let me back on Tumblr. I crave the Tumblr community, it's my safe haven. And I made so many excellent friends on there.
I really should blog more, I know. But it took a while for me to transition from the awesomeness that is Tumblr to....this. Don't get me wrong, Blogger is okay, but the feed of Tumblr and the constant responses....yeah, I miss it and like it way better than Blogger. But again, I lack the choice to go back to that lovely micro-blogging site.

So...I've been sitting here for a while trying to figure out what to blog about. I think I'm just going to give y'all a super boring update on what I've been doing today.

I slept late, around 12:30 or 1 something. Ate some leftover Pop-tart, got Gracie some yogurt, and just relaxed for a few hours (also did some writing!). Then I cleaned the toilet, vacuumed the bedroom floor, and showered then took out some trash I didn't get to yesterday. Now all I have left is to clean the bathroom floor and wash the sink.

God this is boring I'm so sorry.

A short post of rambling (you have been warned)

So....I had an interesting start to my week. Not an ideal one, but mistakes happen. There was mis-communication between my mom and I, so Monday was an emotionally taxing day. But we got things cleared up that night. Unfortunately I had gotten a flare-up, aura and a borderline migraine. :P

Today I just want to relax, get done what I need to get done, and enjoy myself.

Today I woke up relaxed. Very, very relaxed. A nice way to wake up after the stress of Wednesday and Thursday. Unfortunately, this feeling didn't last but for a few hours, so I went for a walk. (Walking=destressing) I'm back now (with sugary things/candy) and feeling better.

I have a feeling my stress levels are higher than usual not only because of the strenuous babysitting, but because of my new medication (which is directly connected to my hormones). That may be offsetting me a bit, but I've been taking them for almost three weeks. *sighs* That and my flare-ups are happening more often.

Ugh, I'm rambling now and I'm not sure if this post made any sense, but thanks for reading. ;P

I haven't blogged in three days. No wonder I only have one follower. That and I'm not putting the link to this thing in the info of my stuff.

Sincerest apologies.

But I have good reasons. I don't feel like anyone really reads this thing. I miss Tumblr, with its constant feed and quick responses, etc. It's hard to blog under this thing. :/

I won't abandon this blog, not yet. I'm really trying to force make myself like this platform...

SeptNoWriMo-Day 2

It's going...okay. I wanted to write 15k in three days but I don't know if that's happening. I wrote somewhere around 1,700/2,000 words yesterday, and I don't even think I've made 1k today. Ugh, but hey words are words and at least I'm getting something down.

Right now I'm working on fanfiction. I tried outlining some of POTM in August and lost the excitement to work on it anymore, so for now, my September will revolve around...fanfiction.
