Writer's Block: Lesson learned

The transition from youth to adulthood can be smooth or incredibly difficult. What is the most important lesson you learned since middle school, and how has it guided you?
I learned that you always have to go with the waves, and take charge of your situations. I lost everything when I was a Junior in High school. I lived outside of New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit. I lived out of a hotel for about a month. Then I decided I wasn't going to do that anymore, went online, and found a boarding school. I sent them an email explaining my situation, and asking if I could attend their school. They sent me an application that day, I mailed it back, and then they were on the phone asking when I could come up there. It was in northern Indiana. That school was the best thing that ever happened to me. But if I had just let life take me, and not do anything about the situation I had been put into, I would have never been able to experience the amazing things I was able to experience at that school.

SO that whole update thing, It didn't happen. Turns out I am strait awful at this whole updating thing. I'm no Emi, who is in Russia, lucky. I want to actually LIVE in a foreign country. That will be the day. A very soon day. I'm moving to Edinburgh, at least there, Once I graduate college. Then living in s. korea for a year to teach english. Anyone who can offer help on good living areas, or places to work while I live there, since school will be soo expensive!
Oh, grad school: MBA, I've decided, and I'm very happy about it, and I have Scotland to thank!

Scotland, finally

So I wasn't expecting it, but it's extremely difficult to find internet on this island. The places we have been staying have had no internet in the rooms. So it's either a walk down the block on a day when I could actually breath (which were few and far between) or just not get online. It happens.
But this is been quite an exciting experience. I only wish I had been keeping a journal every day of what happens because it's all just one crazy happening after another. Like getting accosted by gypsies in Paris, or butt naked men in Loch Ness hostels.
or the moments when words escaped me, such as seeing Big ben for the first time, coming out of the westminster tube exit and looking up to a symbol of London. Or understanding the enormity of a battle lost in Scotland.
But I still have three papers to write for my london history class, don't even get me started on that nonsense... Then a book review of t.m. Devine's the scottish nation...look it up... yea, about that.I wish I were a better journal-er. Life would be much easier...

697 words....wow, I suck at life.  I should have over 3,000 words right now....But I only have 697....Kill me please. 
I just...am not inspired at all.  Maybe this isn't for me.  I mean, I can never keep to one thing, and I know everything I write is so...taciturn and boring compared to even middle schoolers writing an english paper.  I mean, It doesn't matter how inspired I may be to write something.  It just...doesn't formulate. I don't know why.
Take this thunder storm for intense.  Quite inspiring.  I even opened a new word document.  But as I stared at the blank page you know what I got?
I'll tell you what I got:
"The thunder was incredibly fierce this evening."
wow......how invigorating....not
I mean, if only what I wrote was more like my blog entries, or papers even!  I wouldn't be filled with self-loathing.  But no...Life doesn't work that way.  You see, I must think I have talent...then go about falling in love with something, before realizing my unborn, and still UNCONCEIVED child could write better prose than me.  And that is not a joke.  I have seen better writing when I read fan fictions about harry potter in middle school!  THAT IS NOT A LIE!  Not even a modest, wow I'm pissed at my writing right now lie!  that is the honest to god truth!
I'm just....too pissed to do anything right now.  I don't even think I could go to bed...
SHIT!  I forgot my knitting at school!!! NOOOO!! AND MY SUDOKU GAME!!111111111 AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
well fuck me.
And on a plus side, I have a crawfish boil tomorrow.  My big sis in the sorority's engagement party.  How exciting!!!  Can't wait!  Because by than I will have dispensed my anger and not hate my self so much.  Which is always good.

I can not write when I am cold, 
so I bought this self heating coffee thing.....It is INGENIOUS!  and extreamley yummy!  I also bought bubble bath today and slept close to 20 hours (not really) I did however, sleep through my classes on accident.  So becasue I spent all day doing other things, I have now until I pass out to write the remaining words for today....I don't think it will be done TODAY, more like: done before I go to sleep early tommorow morning.  Which so totally counts!
I'm also very very very tired, and doing everything I can to avoid writing...I even studied math!
I thin I'm ganna take a bubble bath and write in the tub....that sounds nice and relaxing...now the question in:
sandlewood amber OR relax and destress?
writing

Tis Official!

Today is the first day of my writing month!  whoohoo!  Last night I made notes....and for all of my fans out there:

"How was she to survive the next two years of her life when she couldn’t even survive the introductions being flung at her?"

Yay!
