Fiction: A Companion

6882092-men-holding-the-word-fiction-concept-3d-illustrationHello! We’re back with another piece of end of month fiction! We’re back to Samuel, the human who can see faeries. This piece introduces Edward, a boy who becomes very important to Sam’s life. I’m trying to figure out the updates for New Home and Second Chances since I want to get back to them now that school is over. Maybe a monthly update of New Home would be good, but I can always have monthly Sam and Ed posts too if that works! I would love to know! Well here’s when Sam met Ed. Enjoy! Oh here’s the first part: Gift or Curse

Goodbye June, Hello July!

hello-july

Hello everyone! Here we are at the end of June. I really feel like this month went by before I knew it. July will be here in a few hours, though it’s already here in a couple of places, and sometimes I can’t believe how fast time can pass. I feel like I did a lot during this month though. I pretty happy to say that I’ll finally be able to get my degree soon which makes me super happy. I worked really hard for it and now I finally got it. However, I know that I have to keep working if I want to be an archivist.

As a sendoff to June here are some of the things that I did:

  • Took the last class I needed to finally get my degree.
  • Started job searching. (I try to send out at least one application a day.)
  • Became more social
  • Worked harder on my anxiety and depression
  • Started thinking about my life in the future

I didn’t have a lot of time to get back to my stories like I wanted. Next month I’m hoping will be much better in terms of getting back to my writing schedule. I think I’m slowly getting out of the depression I was in during the majority of my undergrad because I’m getting the urge to write again. I still want to do editing work since now I’ll be free while I job search. I’m still setting things up as I’m trying to work harder on not slacking off when I have things to do. I’m doing good at finishing things though and I’m hoping that leads into something more.

My goals for July will be:

  • Pick up my two serials again
  • Do more to get ready for editing work
  • More of my Daiya read through
  • Take it easy on myself if I have a bad day
  • Set up small goals and tackle them first before I tackle bigger ones

I’m trying to pace myself during July since my anxiety and depression spikes during this time. I know it’s because it’s the month before my dad died, still it’s hard for me to control on my own sometimes. I’m doing much better than I did six years ago, but I always get sad when the anniversary is coming up.

I think these goals can happen I just have to put my mind to it and make sure that it does.

I hope everyone will be able to make July a very good month!

If you have some goals I’d like to know.

Goodbye May, Hello June!

Hello everyone! Can you believe we’re in June already!? One of my favorite things about this month is my birthday!! Woo!! I’m going to be 27 this year and sometimes I can’t believe that I made it this far. There were times I didn’t think I would, but I did it with help from some amazing people in my life.

However, this month isn’t entirely a happy month for me. It’s the same month where my beloved grandpa passed away. There isn’t a day that I don’t miss him or his laugh that could be heard from his room. I know that he would want me to go out there and enjoy my life, including my birthday. I’m going to honor his memory by doing just that. He always told me to enjoy every day and it’s something that I’m trying to do.

I meant to do this a few days ago, but better late than never! Here are some of the things I did in May that I’m very proud of.

Things I did in May:

  • GRADUATED!!! I will always be happy that I made it through college!
  • Tried to be sociable
  • Decided on how I wanted to live my life
  • Started to figure out a lot more things about myself
  • Started job searching again with help from my friends.
  • Made some new friends online
  • Trying to make some decisions about my mental health
  • Trying to get over my fear of letting people get close to me

Not bad for the month of May. Here are a few goals I have for the month of June:

  • Job search (even if it means taking education work)
  • Open up an editing post and slowly work from there
  • Start up my stories again (I really miss writing)
  • Work on my anxiety and depression
  • Finish things!
  • Get back on my work out schedule and stick to it

I also want to take some trips with my friends this year. I think it would be really fun!

May wasn’t the best month for me, but I’m determined to make June a good one!

Not to mention it’s my birthday month!!! I don’t care how old I am I will always enjoy my birthday!

Those are my goals for June.

Does anyone have some goals?

I’d love to know!

Goodbye November, hello December!

keep-calm-and-love-december-3

Wow can you believe that we’re at the end of the month!

It’s going to be December soon which means Christmas will also be here! I know I’m 26, but I still love Christmas and the holiday season!

Now it’s time to round up what happened in the month of November.

-I participated in NaNoWriMo though I didn’t write on the story I planned and did little projects instead.

-I posted on twitter every day for NaNo! That’s the first time that’s ever happened and it was pretty fun to do!

-I went through math this semester and I’m actually passing! I’m quite happy about this.

-I’m trying to work more on not stopping or doubting my writing anymore. I’m working on keeping this posting schedule up on both my stories and the blog too.

-I’m trying to accept that fact that I am actually graduating which is a good thing even if it means going out into the horrible job market. I hope it’s not too bad.

-Working through my seasonal depression and I’m doing a good job about it, though I know it’s because I’m trying not to worry as much.

Alright that’s all I can think about when it comes to November. Now on to my December goals!

-Keep up with the posting

-Make sure to take care of college stuff

-Clean up resume

-Look into twitter ads

-Take care of self a bit more

-Look into Patreon again

-Finish up those fics that need finishing

-Keep up monthly posting of New Home and weekly posting of Second Chances

I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep up with all these goals, but I will try!

I hope December goes well for you all too!

See Ya Later September, Hello October!

keep-calm-and-love-october-10

Wow I can’t believe that September is already over! I can say that this month was a bit better than August, though I’m trying to fight when seasonal depression rolls around. However, I know what it is and I know how to work around it. Since it’s coming around, it’s time I name off something things that made me happy this month.

-I was able to pass two math quizzes. I’ve always struggled with math, so to know that I’m passing makes me so happy.

-I’m in my last semester of college. I can’t believe that I’m so close to graduating. It’s almost like a dream, I can’t believe it!

-I updated New Home and working on the next chapter! I might be able to get on an updating schedule and that makes me so happy!

-I’m not pushing people away as much as I used to. I’m reconnecting and finding that people do like me. They also miss me too.

-I’m opening up and finding my old self again. It’s been pretty great.

-I’m not feeling as scared about my writing anymore. I’m still a bit nervous, but not like before.

-I found confidence in my looks again. It took me a long time for the person in the mirror to match up with the person in my head and I’m not going to let anyone stop me from feeling good. Family or otherwise.

So I’m pretty happy with the way things have been going this September. I even managed to hit some of my goals that I put in my last post. Here are my goals for October.

-Try not to slack off during school

-Keep up with my weekly posting

-For Fiction Wednesday I’m going to change it to Second Chances updates

-Update one fanfic

-Work on other fanfic

-Outline novel

-Work on New Home

-Keep up my confidence

That may be a lot for October, but I have no doubt that I’ll be able to do it. How about you guys? Any goals for October? Oh and I forgot to mention that my favorite holiday is coming up: HALLOWEEN!!

I can’t wait!

Bye August, Hello September!

september-month-2Wow, I can’t believe it’s the last day of August and September will be tomorrow. I’m happy that I finally got around to writing up an end of month post. Here are a few things that made me happy during the month of August.

-Being able to play my 3DS and getting a new card to be able to get two more files for my Harvest Moon games.

-Getting in touch with some of my old friends online

-Celebrating my brother’s birthday

-Getting further in my video games

-Already having my loans and things set for school

-Getting my favorite ice cream after I accidently left the pint out in the car one summer day

-I wrote almost every day this month! (It was fanfics, but it still counts to me)

-I uploaded a lot more on fan sites too

-I’m working on my confidence when it comes to my writing

-I kept up with my updates here something I’m happy about

Those are things that made me really happy about in August. I’ll have to say this summer hasn’t been the easiest. Between the death in my family and having to work through the resulting grief has sucked a lot of energy out of me. My depression has kicked back up too, though I’m hoping to work through it and go through school.

My goals for September are:

-Start updating New Home again

-Work on some fics on my hard drive

-Look into getting a Patreon (if I got one would that interest anyone?)

-Setting up an editing post soon. (It will help me get some money while I look for a job)

-Start planning a novel that I will self publish

-Try to bring some more life back here probably with posting original stuff I’ve written along with some new stuff too

I’m not going to hold myself to these goals too hard, but I am going to try and keep them.

Do you have any goals for September? I’d love to hear them. ^^
