Well, as far as I’m concerned it’s still Sunday…

It’s 12:15 AM on Monday, but seeing as I’m still up… let’s all pretend it’s still Sunday and therefore the weekend, shall we?

This week has been CRAZY!!! Between working drama camp, going to theatre rehearsals, getting ready for and having my grad party, and going to other grad parties, I’ve barely had enough time to think, let alone sleep or write this blog post. Sorry!

I’m currently sprawled out on my bed in my pajamas, my dog Sammy sleeping on top of my feet, really wishing I could sleep in tomorrow… but I’ve gotta be at work at 8:30 AM. Yaaay. (<– That’s called sarcasm, my friends.)

Sorry this is such a teeny tiny post and it’s coming so late. I’m just too exhausted to do much, right now. And a heads up? This next week is going to be crazy as well, between working at camp and doing theatre and trying to get to 25,000 words in my Camp NaNoWriMo novel (my new, adjusted goal). Plus, I need to start working on my lecture for the lil’ writing conference for teens I’m running this July.

But anyway, I’m about to fall asleep writing this, sooo… G’night, you!

Wordy Wednesday (“Cadence, Excerpt #3”)

I AM GOING CRAZY RIGHT NOW. I’m currently working at a local drama camp in the mornings, prepping for my grad party this weekend in the afternoons, and attending theatre rehearsals in the evenings. Along with trying not to lose Camp NaNoWriMo too horribly.

I ache all over, I keep snapping at everybody, and I’m basically dressed like a giant five year old today because I couldn’t be bothered to find anything cute to wear.

And I look like this:

I really, really just want to get some sleep, but I can’t, because there’s so much stuff to do, and just… Gah. I can’t take it. I can’t wait until this week is over and everything slows down and I can go back to being like this:

(I know — even when I’m trying, I don’t have my usual perk and verve.)

But anyway, here’s today’s Wordy Wednesday! (To be honest, I’m not even sure today is Wednesday, but I’m assuming it is since this is going to be my third day of torture and it started on Monday… which comes two days before Wednesday. Yeah.)
