For the past few day’s it has been raining down here in Knoxville, Iowa. And the truth to be told I’m not a huge big fan of the rain. It’s weird because if it’s not raining really hard I’ll go walk in it and it relaxes me. Yes, I know it’s weird. But I hate to be by myself in the apartment when it rains because there are a few leaks here and there in the apartment. And it stress’s me out and worries me. I get really overwhelmed and I have to leave because I think the ceiling is going to cave in and I don’t want to be there when it happens.
Sometimes when it rains all day or a few days at a time it gets me down and I get sad and lonely. I don’t know why I feel that way. Maybe because I think of things that I wish would get better not worst.But on the good side after its done raining and I go for my walk I love the smell of the earth like the tree bark, the fresh grass, and the soil. And including the flowers. But on the good side after its done raining and I go for my walk I love the smell of the earth like the tree bark, the fresh grass, and the soil. And including the flowers. I love to see the water puddles and the droplets dripping from the trees. The streets and sidewalks running to the drains. That’s what I love about after it rains. The sights and the smells.
But on the good side after its done raining and I go for my walk I love the smell of the earth like the tree bark, the fresh grass, and the soil. And including the flowers. I love to see the water puddles and the droplets dripping from the trees. The streets and sidewalks filled with water as it runs to the drains. That’s what I love about after it rains. The sights and the smells.
When I was younger I use to love the rain. I would sit by the window and watch it run down the glass. When my stepdad Charlie would go check the water thermometer I was curious to see how much water we got.
Sunshine gets me in a good mood for the most part. I love the sun shining and it makes me feel positive and I want to do things. The sunshine brightens up everything and it feels good. I love the warmth too. If it gets too hot then yes I want it to rain to cool the day down. That would be the only time I would want it to rain.
So on the positive side, I rather have sunshine then rain.
What is your favorite breakfast to get you up and out the door?
The only way to you can get me out of bed is a cup of coffee. I love the smell and taste of french vanilla in the morning. And drinking coffee with a bagel smeared with peanut butter and honey dripped on top is really good. The peanut butter and honey melts in your mouth with the coffee. I eat a bagel every morning. Sometimes I’ll eat it weeks at a time then I get sick of it and want something else.
How do you soothe yourself when you are upset?
If I’m upset I try to hold it in so nobody can see it, but my close friends know me very well. They can tell I’m upset with just one look at me. I’m not very good at hiding my feelings, I guess. Talking to people can soothe it and I feel better to get it off my chest.
What is your favorite game to play?
My favorite game to play is Lara Croft: Underworld. I’ve played it so many times that I lost track. I love that game. I wish I had all the Lara Croft games.
I found out about the game back in 2008 or 2009. A friend was playing it in the living room and I was watching her play it and I got into it and asked if I could play. Ever since I’ve been hooked on it.
It’s been said, “You are what you eat.” Rewrite that phrase: “You are what you____.”
You are what you write.
I love that phrase “you are what you write.” I believe in that because I am who I am today because of what I write. I think because I watch a lot of movies w/ghosts, witches, demons and all that stuff. I enjoy it so much that I write about it too. I’ve always said I rather have a character being scared then writing about two people kissing and having sex. Not my cup of tea in china.
What is your favorite way to spend a lazy day?
If feel like I don’t want to do anything I will watch movies, play games on my phone or I will write if I’m inspired. And if I’m really bored and the weather is nice I’ll go for a walk. I try not to have lazy days because I hate being lazy. And I hate laying around and not doing anything. Who would want to sleep all day or just lay around. Not Me. I have to be doing something or I’ll so crazy.
If I’m in the apartment to many days at a time and I don’t do anything I start to worry and I need to get out of the apartment and interact with people and get some fresh air. Thank god for close friends.
Well, I think I’m all done with my Psychopath story. It’s really not called a psychopath story. There are two story’s that are connected together. The first one is called Behind One’s Eye. I don’t know if I really want that title. I don’t know what to name it yet. The second short story is where the man that tried to kill them ends up in the mental hospital. I’m glad to be done with it. I didn’t realize it would take me a couple months to write it. When I first wrote it I was writing a lot of it then I got half way through and realized I don’t know where the story should go. With the help of my writer’s group, they gave me some ideas on how to end it. The ending isn’t like OH MY GOD! It’s different than what you would expect.
I have to go back through the whole entire story and make sure everything sounds right and there aren’t any miss spelled words. The editing and revising doesn’t bother me as much. The more I do it the more I like it.
There are still a couple things I do need to add in the story.
