Taking Things for Granted (That awful phrase)

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Well, the dentist said my teeth are fine and I don't need braces. I cannot describe my relief. But that's enough of that.

A lot of people seem to like the idea of Rebel. So, last night I just thought about the story. I put myself in the main character's shoes. I thought about the climax a lot. How would I feel if I pretty much knew that my two cousins--my only family in the world--and my best friend--and other good friends--were about to die. What would I be thinking, knowing that I would probably never see them again? Whether the climax turns out good or bad, the MC's life will never be the same. I really wanted to get to know Brynn, my main character, so I wrote a character sketch--something that I love to do. So, would you like to meet Brynn? If you do, maybe I'll put her character sketch on here.

Six days from today is Valentines Day. Remember how I said how much I hated that holiday?Well, I don't anymore. I guess all I ever hated was the commercialism. But it is said that we have to have a special day to show people how much we care. I admit, I take my family--and friends--for granted way more than I should. In a few years, my friends will be heading off to college. Some are already in college, or heading there. And my family is growing up (I guess I am, too). My cousins Jackie is married and I don't get to see her as much as I used to (although I do really like Jim and Londan being part of the family--I wouldn't trade them for anything). My cousin/buddy Jacob is going to be in high school next year (aaa!). That's actually really scary. I don't really see my cousin Natalie at all. But I want to make more of an attempt to stay in contact. Cuz I love my cousins, and I know that I have a better relationship with them than most people--I don't want to let anything ruin that. So I'm not going to take them for granted. Maybe I'll even send them an invitaion to my blog.

  1. You have no choice but to stay in close contact with me, because even if you try to move away from me, I will hunt you down ALL the time! LOL
