…with girly parts. Seriously, being a girl sucks. I know you guys don’t want to hear it, but hormones make everything miserable. And I do mean everything. This entire past week has been one big long pout fest over one thing or another with the occasional bright spot to soften the harsh reality that I am female and my body hates me. For one thing I got to actually play some D&D for real. Yes, I’ve probably told you that I started playing D&D a few months ago but that doesn’t actually count since the DM sucked really bad and the whole thing was one giant fail. Sound a little harsh? The kid licked me and I’m raging so there. This new D&D experience has mixed reviews. I’m fairly certain any hostility I felt towards the game or DM whom I don’t know very well is probably due to the fact that I happen to be female and, again, my body hates me. Besides that my character isn’t terribly well prepared and I suck at D&D apparently, so maybe when I gain some understanding of the game and it’s working and something resembling skill I’ll enjoy it a bit more. Until then, I’ve got another game tomorrow in which I am a Kender Bard… and now I sound like a total dork. The real bright spot, however, came on Thursday when I went back to my high school for a Literary Arts reading. Readings make me very happy, if I haven’t said so before. I love readings, going to them and reading in them and everything. I miss reading for readings but luckily, I shall get my chance soon…ish. According to my most favoritest teacher there will be an Alumni Reading at next year’s LAVA festival. That’s only fourteen months away. c: But seriously, I desire to write things and read them for your viewing pleasure. Unfortunately, it will be awhile before I can do that. Oh sigh. Going back to school did inspire me to write again, however. I’ve been kind of circling the idea of writing a short story for some time now and I finally got around to writing something that doesn’t completely suck. It’s not my best work or anything but at the very least it’s self-contained and people can read it without looking at me with big Courtney eyes and saying ‘Fffffarkas you should totally do something with this!’ \o/ Hurray for self-contained short stories!~ I’m not ready for something big just now. So I was somewhat productive this weekend. Not only did I actually write something but I also finished Rune Factory 3 which I have been playing for the past two weeks or so and will be reviewing for Friday, hopefully. I wouldn’t hold me to that, though, if I were you. Anyway, it took me until about 2 in the morning to beat the final boss but there was no way I was going to let him get away with stealing my wife! Now all I have to do is keep her happy for a month so she’ll give me babies. c: Yes, I realize how creepy that sounds. And I don’t care. So I actually accomplished things! Just not the things I was supposed to be accomplishing. Ah well, I am female and I feel that is a good excuse to do nothing for a weekend other than hide in my room so as to avoid biting the heads off of everyone around me. And before you say it, give me a day or two and I’ll be back in the kitchen.
That’s What I Get for Being a Girl…
