Man... it's been too long since I've played a game like Red Dead 2. Due to rpgs and stupid phone games, I kind of suck at this game. But, I'll get the hang of it sooner or later. Let's just hope I didn't curse myself by naming my horse Bojack. Still, my own lack luster performance aside, it's a...

So, through a series of lucky events, I managed to scrape together a bit of cash. And now... Red Dead Redemption 2 time! Woooo! First new game I've owned in years!

That's kind of sad to think about... But yay! New game!

Once again, I'm sitting here in the dark, unable to sleep. Nothing new, except for the past week or so, I've been tormented by the ghost of a story idea that just won't take shape. And I can't really get started on it until I know what it's trying to become.

It's like, you know when you have part...

At least write down what you know now so you don’t lose any important details and maybe it will start taking shape... good luck

@bookcouple I have been, I've got a jumbled mess of notes I try to jot down either on a little notebook or on my phone.

I've sent out more query letters than I can count at this point, all of which have, of course, been rejected. I've received some extremely pompous, self important responses from agents, and I've received many standard, form letter rejections that leave you wondering if they even read the query. The worst of which was sent just fifteen minutes after I sent the...

Don’t know any agents but it’s good that you’re staying hopeful, good luck

@bookcouple Thanks. And yeah, that last bit's a long shot, but you never know.

Man, when did Halloween get so sad? My dad and I got a couple bags of candy, I was listening for the door all night, and not a single trick or treater. I remember when I was a kid there were always loads of us in costumes going around the neighborhood. Tonight, I went out for a smoke, no one had their lights on, no...

Okay. So, I've always viewed this site as a community. I understand that hopefuls are trying to get their sets bought to become paid models. I get that. But, it's still a community.

It's really starting to piss me off seeing so many hopefuls who don't follow anyone, don't comment anywhere on the site, and basically have zero presence beyond...

@libris Sadly, that attitude seems to be rare these days.

I agree with you. And I really feel sad when one of those girls turn in pink.

Okay. Trying to be rational in hopes of calming the fuck down. No idea why, but I seem to be in the midst of a panic attack. After the initial freak out, I've got my breathing normal, but now I can't stop shaking. Which makes writing this on a fucking cell phone pretty difficult. If I had to guess, I think it was...

@felicity @elune_ @bookcouple Thanks, after a couple hours of it not going away I dug out my old xanax prescription and took one. Knocked me out, and I've been out of it all day. I remember why I hate taking those pills.

I think I'm tired of people. I mean, if nothing else, I'm tired of putting effort towards engaging with people and getting little to no response.

Prime example being, family and friends. These are people I've talked to in person. I know, without any room for doubt, that they have their goddamn phones on them at all times. And they're never...

I have the same thing happen with a friend!  She'll text, or answer the phone while I'm sitting there, but if I message her, nothing for days.  This is the same friend I'm distancing myself from.  It's so annoying, I completely understand!
wolfwood1203:
@aonbheannach Thanks, I'm not sure about wise, but I appreciate that all the same. @libris It's definitely frustrating. It makes it hard to try to start new friendships, otherwise you might hear from me more often. I just feel like I'm bothering people now, so I stay quiet. @bookcouple Hugs back, thanks for that.

Day three of no air-conditioner. I was greeted Monday morning with the smell of burning throughout the house before the air just died completely. The motor crapped out on us. It's still hitting the mid 90's here. Holy crap, this freaking sucks. Not sure if we can afford to fix it either, so I might be suffering until winter hits. Sadly, that means...

I can't sleep in warm too. Good luck until the winter. And I think that likes in my comments on sets are cleary spam. I don't see users or old girls in comunity doing this, just the new girls...

@felicity I'm seeing photographers do this too. I just don't get what they hope to accomplish by spamming my notifications.

So, my dad really likes those pretzels you get at the mall. He used to take my nephews and nieces on weekends to go get pretzels. And since I've been back, and the kids moved to Dallas, he talks about wanting to go get a pretzel a lot, but never goes. So, I decided to try to make us some instead.

Good job, they look fantastic!

Yummy!!!

Okay, I need to get out more. Yesterday I found myself watching attack of the killer donuts, not a good movie by any far stretch, but not as awful as it could have been. The point is, if I had somewhere to go, or someone to talk to, I might not have watched that garbage.

Still dealing with the whole, "hurry up and wait" thing

Finding a job is such a pain, and waiting is the worst!  I hassled the hell out of the last place I interviewed, and got hired.  I don't know if it was because I was persistent, or if they were going to hire me anyway; but hassling them has always seemed to work for me.  If there's a job you see you really want, go for it!  Kitty paws are so cute!

Woo! Season 5 of Bojack Horseman is finally here! Anyone else watching this show? I admit, the first season was a little hard to get through for about the first half, but I'm glad I stuck with it. Gonna have to binge watch soon. Sadly, is not going to be quite the same for me this season. My best friend got me into the

I tried, buy didn't really enjoy. But I don't usually watch series in general

I like Bojack Horseman, but now I don't have free time to watch it 😓 Just waiting for summer vacation!
