One month of the year already gone! How'd that happen? Woosh! There it went flying by!

I just finished my tax returns tonight. Fuck Trump's new tax code. Last year I got a little more than $3,000 back. This year I made about $800 less and I'm getting $500 back. I'm SQUARELY middle class. And pretty annoyed.

On a happier note, I made myself a goal of updating my Realm once a month, and I remembered this YESTERDAY. So this morning I did the update during breakfast. So I'm on track there. It's just the 12 fics in 12 days stories added this time, but the point is that they're up! Did you know I started that site in january 2001? 18 years ago this month. Time definitely flies. WOOSH!

This month I managed to complete 3 things from my 101 Things in 1001 Days list (3 is the minimum if I want to stay on track). I managed to get my inbox down from over 36.000 to under 2,000. I watched a Saving Throw show live and supported them with a subscription. (The show, by the way, is a multi-part RPG of Into the Spider-verse and it is EPIC). I also drove up to Maryland on MLK, Jr. Day and participated in a Day of Service event. I got to bag toiletries for the homeless and pack boxes with diabetic/vegetarian food options for a food pantry. It was really great to see so many people--families and children included--show up. After YEARS of checking for a loan on Kiva from Papua New Guinea, I finally found one and funded it. Was so thrilling to get to support someone in the country where I was born. I also started watching Critical Role campaign 1. I'm only up to episode 15 of, like, 160. And as each is 3-5 hours long, that's going to take me a while. But I'm definitely loving it.

I've read 17 books so far this year, which is pretty great. My goal for the year is 125, I think. It's been 100 for a number of years now, so it was time I raised the bar for myself. My word of the year is IMPROVE, after all!

Speaking of which, I started the Pop Sugar 30 Days to a Flat Belly challenge this month. I managed to work out 29 out of 31 days this month. The two days I didn't work out were days when I was physically unable to. So I'm calling it a win. I'll finish the challenge up this weekend. I'm already looking forward to getting back to my beloved Tae Bo Basics workouts on Mondays after work (now with spiffy weighted gloves that make me feel strong and powerful!). I also finished the second draft of my weight loss article. I just want to give it another read, maybe try to cut it down a little more, and put together some images to submit with it. I want to write another article or two if this one goes well.

Last night, I helped out at my church's hypothermia shelter. It's fucking WAY below freezing this week, so our help came at a good time. I brought a bunch of toiletries, books, and 5 tubs of ice cream as well (well, one sorbet in case there were people who couldn't do dairy). I was a little nervous, not because I'd be serving the homeless but because I'd be around a LOT of strangers, and I'm a super shy introvert. But everyone was super nice, and there were a lot of kids and some other newbies as well helping out. I manned the cole slaw and stew. One guy came back for five helpings. We had SO MUCH ice cream (I might have bought more than needed--I just wanted to give them flavor choices!) that we only put out a few flavors at a time. One gentleman said that Bryers was his favorite brand (mine, too!) and that he loved the Reses peanut butter cup flavor best. I darted over to the freezer, grabbed the one I'd bought, and TOTALLY made his night. He came back for seconds. And then thirds. It was also really awesome to see everyone bedding down in the main hall of our church. I've only been going there for a little over a month now, but I feel completely comfortable and at home in the place in a way I never thought I would. So to see so many people settling in to sleep, warm and cozy, in a place that's like my home filled my heart with gladness. I'm definitely signing up to help with this again next year.

This month has been filled with a lot of ups and downs. My mother had emergency surgery and is still having some fallout from that, but she's still alive, so I'm relieved. The government shutdown was pretty hard on some of my friends and family. My sister used it as a vacation and came out to visit us last week, so it was nice being able to spend a little unplanned time with her, but I'm glad everyone's back to work for the next few weeks at least.

I helped out at a local library's Harry Potter event and got to see Hawthorn & Holly do two WRock sets, headlinging their first ever concert. They played a lot of my favorites. And it was just plain nice to see them again! The event went pretty well; I spent most of the time feeling awkward and unnecessary and without direction, but I had some friends there, so at least I wasn't completely out of place. And I got a couple kickass buttons as well. Plus, the teens who came seemed to have a lot of fun, and that's what was most important to me, not my own level of fun :-)

I attended my first monthly poetry group (Ogden Nash). It's an older demographic, but I'm used to that with my Writers' Roundtable group lately. And at the end of the meeting, they tasked me with LEADING the next discussion. It's on rap lyrics. So I've been listening to so much hip hop and rap and trying to come up with some good ones to discuss (and, yeah, Daveed Diggs is on 3 of the 11 songs I chose. I AM NOT ASHAMED)

It snowed several times here this month, but I no longer get snow days. I did get to head home early on Tuesday and didn't have to go in for my library volunteer shift, so that was cool. It gave me time to work out that night, and I was thrilled about that. I also spent a few hours working on puzzles at the library. They have these collaborative jigsaw puzzles out that anybody can work on, and I ADORE puzzles but don't do them here because of the cats. So it was a fantastic feeling to work on them.

I had some great moments with friends as well. I went to a sing-along of Bohemian Rhapsody at the discount theater and finally got to do the coordinated clapping with Radio Ga Ga that I've dreamed of doing for 20+ years. It was fun singing along to the songs, but that was probably the softest I've ever sung Hammer to Fall. I usually SCREAM that in the shower (it and Guns and Ships from Hamilton are two of my favorite shower songs LOL). I had a nice discussion of JK Rowling's latest book with my Harry Potter group. I went to a BookCrossing meetup and enjoyed everyone's stories and company. And I got to hang out with three of my best friends last weekend as we caught up, chatted, and worked on projects (I made a wreath, updated my bullet journal, and got a little coloring done in my coloring book I'm determined to finish for one of my things). I also tried formally roleplaying on discord for the first time. I was WAY out of my comfort zone, but it went well. I really need to find some time to get back at it.

I've been feeling a little numb lately, which distresses me a little. I'm going to keep going through the motions like Buffy until something snaps me out. I was hoping to watch RENT tonight to see if that would pry the emotions from me, but it's getting late. And I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning, and showing up puffy-eyed from sobbing through nearly all of Act 2 is probably not the impression I want to make before a review of my meds. LOL So maybe I'll just hang and work on my bullet journal while diving back into the Spiderverse.

Farewell, January! I have a feeling my February is going to be CRAZY at work, but at least I'm going into the month with no delusions. And I expect it to pass even faster than January did.

Well, I finished my giftfic project finally! Had to really work to get that last one up on time, but I made it. And I celebrated by not writing anything since then. LOL No, really, I've been tackling a lot of other things lately--work, my health, other projects, my bullet journal, etc. I also started watching Critical Role (160 episodes x 3 hours each on average... yeah. I'm going to be watching it for some time). Today I went to a BookCrossing meetup and tried to visit a bunch of Little Free Libraries on my way home. But my stomach just kept feeling worse and worse. And it was cold and rainy and miserable and I just wanted to go home. So I did. I was supposed to work out tonight, but I spent the evening eating Saltines and not getting sick to my stomach, which is a win in my book. I dunno what's up with my body, but I'm a little sad about not working out tonight and breaking my streak. But I physically just can't tonight. My plans for tomorrow got cancelled, though, so I'm going to spend a Sunday going to church in the morning and then getting my shit together! Monday I am driving back to Maryland to attend a volunteer event for MLK, Jr. Day of Service, something I've wanted to participate in for a few years now. And the following week I'll be helping out one night at a hypothermia shelter, serving food and cleaning up. I'm both excited and nervous about it as well.

I haven't decided what of my mainy project to work on next writing-wise. But I'm looking forward to diving into something now that giftfics are out of the way. I'm also going to TRY to keep my realm updated this year at least once a month. I've got a busy year ahead. I'm registered for three cons and I'm debating a fourth. However, I recently had two expenses added to my life, and I also had $500 of dental work this week (with more coming in February, unfortunately). Soooooooo I don't know if that fourth is actually going to happen or not. We'll see! I've got a trip to Portland for work in March, a book festival in May, and a whole bunch of my 101 Things to work more on. I just need more time and energy to do them all. And I need my body to start cooperating.

Seriously, in some ways, this is the opposite of what you asked for. But the idea just sprang into my head and the guys started reacting on their own and this just... happened. I hope that you like it! I'm super nervous about it. It ended up running 12 pages in length, which seemed appropriate for the 12th story in this project.

I don't know what's wrong with me. I write darkfic for day 10 and for day 11 I write a sneezefic where a character can't sneeze. And day 12 is going to be totally opposite as well. My stories are all coming out weird! BUT I promise there IS sneezing eventually. It's a slow burn sneezefic. LOL! I hope you like it, even if it's a bit unconventional. *hugs* Happy new year!

I fear this is far too dark for a gift, but "Snape" is a vague prompt to work with, and I've been dying to write something in the Cursed Child alternate timeline because angst is just glorious. I made a mistake halfway through and, though I sort of fixed it, I'm worried the story is now very strange because of it. But in any case, there is Snape and he is sneezing, so I hope very much that you like it, anonymous original poster!

Summary: Jameson, an adventurer, goes in search of a dragon. He isn't expecting to find one like this, however.
Notes: Written during my 12 Ficlets in 12 Days in 2018-19 project project for Anonymous

I actually intended to write a fic with Lex Luthor. I had an idea in my head about him sitting at his desk and sniffling. He hears the sounds of Christmas carolers on the street below and marches over to his window, yelling down to them to be quiet. Then he goes back to his desk, fuming that anyone could be so cheerful when he himself feels so miserable. But he still hears the singing. When he throws open his window again, it's quiet on the street below. He discovers it's actually his secretary outside his office playing the radio. She hands him a tissue as sort of an apology, when he comes out to confront her, fuming and sneezing. But he dismisses her and storms back into his office. And then... I had NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH HIM. I tried for a few days, but I just couldn't make it into a story. So I switched gears and tried the dragon instead. And that went soooo quickly. I couldn't stop writing! I redid all the graphics and finished this story in almost record time.

I actually have ideas for a sequel in my head, now. I really, really want to revisit these characters.

Anyway, I hope you like what I finally came up with!

It was going pretty badly for a while there, but I think I'm finally in the home stretch. Two of the stories went far faster than I'd expected, so now I only have two more to go, one of which I've already started. My life's been filled with some ups and downs lately (my mom had emergency surgery Monday and came home today; she's recovering well though slowly). And I don't want to jinx myself here, but I think I'm on track for finishing the 12 fics project on time (thank you for letting me post stories every other day).

Stats:
7 = 12 Fics in 12 Days Project Stories Posted So Far
10 = 12 Fics in 12 Days Project Stories Finished
1 = 12 Fics in 12 Days Project Stories In Progress

I'm crossing my fingers for the muses to continue to cooperate and for nothing else serious to strike!

Day 5 Story

All Stories

tarotgal: (Wembley)
I just started a new set of 101 goals, so I don't need resolutions (I like the 101 things in 1001 days format because I get longer to work on my goals than just a year). But the idea of a new year is to evaluate where you are and where you want to go.

So this year I've selected improve as my word of the year. I think I still need to do a better job of keeping last year's word, kindness, in my heart. But there's a lot more I need to improve than just my ability to be kind to someone who is irritating me (myself included). I want to improve my body and continue to get fit (I would LOVE to see my abs one day!). I want to improve my mind and read more deeply and diversely. I want to improve my house and finally fix some things that have been on my list for way too long (my walls still have marks from 2012 where I need to do paint touch-ups). I want to improve my soul and be a stronger part of my local community (I actually started going to a Universal Unitarian church last month that has a strong pagan group). I want to improve my friendships and bonds with my family (I take all of that for granted WAY too often; I want to tell people more often how much I value them in my life). I want to improve my daily routine and form lasting habits that will serve me better (like getting to bed before eleven--aw, shit! How is it 11:08 already?). And I want to do more to improve the world (reduce my carbon footprint, stand up for what I believe, give back whenever possible, share myself whenever possible, etc.). I want to improve my work projects and create better websites and better stories (there is always lots of room to improve on both those fronts). Basically, I want to improve and to keep the spirit of improving in mind whenever I am doing something or creating something.

I think that's MORE than enough to focus on this year without having to create specific resolutions.
