*Glass shatter*

Everything that I do becomes a blog post. Everything. Even this stupid newspaper article I'm trying to write is seeming more like a blog post because I can't remember how to correctly format a newspaper article. BEDA ruined me. This blog ruined me. Newspaper ruined me.

I don't know why it is, but every single time I try to sit down and write this article, it ends up more and more blog-like. It stops being informative and begins to take on the shape of one of my ramblings about a general topic. Maybe I've always written articles this way and I've just noticed because I've started blogging.

*Sound of glass shattering.*

Yep, I've been ruined. I've been ruined by a passion for writing and a different outlet. Blogging every day for an entire month made me realise all of my writing flaws. It made me realise that I'm not good at writing informative articles or about anything important. Or maybe I am. I'm so disinterested in writing this article.

I'll try to write a less rant-y post later. Once I'm in a less rant-y mood. Or something.

I'm back, baby.

It's been a little over two weeks and as promised, I'm checking in. It's not that my life has suddenly become extraordinarily busy or anything, I just haven't wanted to post. And after that post filled month last month, I needed a break. But here I am today, watching old So You Think You Can Dance auditions, tumblring, and following Hayley G Hoover's 21st birthday live tweet party. I'm not, however, writing the article for newspaper that I should have finished during class nor am I even attempting any of my homework. I regret nothing.

The past two weeks haven't been particularly eventful, besides my being nice and sick for five or so days. I auditioned for my musical on the last day of BEDA, and while I'm just part of the chorus that audition did get me into my school's show choir, which was exciting. We had our first practise yesterday, which is the first of like four in the next two months because of preparation for the musical. I feel like it will be a nice way to keep me busy and whatnot.

I'm also doing some deep preparations for NaNoWriMo (read: trying to think up some concept of something to write about.) The first day of NaNoWriMo, however, marks the start of the last two weeks of rehearsal for this musical, so I'll be at the school until late late at night. That should be a fun time to try and write 1,666 words every day. It's one of those things, though, that I'm so determined to do even if I can't finish. Because that's the kind of person I am.

I've noticed over the past couple of weeks since I've blogged that not only do I miss it a lot when I don't do it, but I also create posts in my head. Not that they stay there long enough to get posted or anything. I'm not THAT talented. I've also noticed that I just have completely stopped caring about anything that other people think. And I will thank my blogging for that, for whatever reason.

But yeah, I'll see what I can do to update a little more frequently, if I can. I really should probably try to start my newspaper article at this time. Or just watch more dancing. That could work too. Until next time.
