You should know that I came on the computer to work on my homework assignments. Writing a blog post was not my intention. I just have not had anything fun to write about (or gripe about, hah) recently so I’ve been around sparingly. I’ve gone into “reading robot” mode. Which means, before the end of next week, it’s likely I will have read at least three books. It also means I have been quieter in all the social media outlets lately. But it’s nice to disconnect.
I’m not sure if I have talked about my love for the written word. It’s a very strong bond we have, as writing and reading have been my outlets since I was young, because I was shy. Oh so very shy. And whom am I kidding (totally busted out some proper grammar there) when I say “was?” I am the shyest person you will ever meet. I think a lot of my friends can attest to that. Quiet little Lacey. You really have to pull some crap in order to get an outburst out of me, and that fiery redhead personality has made an appearance a few times in my life, but for the most part my flame is dormant.
So I escape into books. All kinds of books: classics, horror, science fiction, young adult, mystery, fiction, non-fiction…you get the picture, I pretty much like it all. Sometimes I get so attached to a book I am reading that I feel depressed when it has ended. Maybe I have issues.
It’s also what I am going to school for. I’m working towards my BFA in Creative Writing. I should graduate in December of 2013. What I am doing after that, I don’t know. I have two fairly decent stories I could attempt to write but I don’t actually see myself finishing them. I’ve been given an award for the parts I have written of one of the stories, but all the award really gives me is bragging rights. So I am bragging. Here. On my blog. That only strangers and maybe three family members and friends know about. This blog does not give anyone much of a glimpse at the creative side of me. Well, I guess other than the blog design stuff. I’m okay at that too. Sometimes I want to share some of my stories, but then I decide against it. Maybe I should create another blog for that.
I’m rambling. I suppose what I wanted to come on here and say was that if I am absent it’s because I am concentrating a bit more on school (I’m a straight A student and want to stay that way) and maybe I am even working on piecing together my stories. Maybe you are quite possibly reading the blog of someone who will one day be a best-selling author. Maybe. Actually, it’s probably not likely. Too bad most of you don’t know my last name. You wouldn’t be able to pronounce it anyway.
Another one of those posts where I empty my head. That’s what a blog is for, right?
See you on the flip side.
