Well, this has just been a great week. Well, not really.

First off, I will tell you guys that something's been up with my computer lately. For the past week-ish, I have been unable to open Internet Explorer. And, due to my idiocracy of not downloading another internet browser, I cannot go online on my own computer. I am writing this from my mother's computer.
If anyone has any ideas on how to fix my problem, it would be very much appreciated. From what my computer has been telling me, "Click here to go online to download the solution," I have nothing to go from, because it crashes before I can even get online. I blame this for my lack of posts.

Secondly, there has been some major drama in my group of friends, that it is difficult for me to speak of, because it is not my business to speak of. However, it's not good, and it has brought my mood way down.

Thirdly, and this is just recent, my dog is limping. This has nothing to do with my week, or anything of the sort, but I just looked at her and noticed that she is limping. I hope that she's okay... :)

Last but not least, my writing has fallen way behind schedule. I didn't think I would be this far behind, but I am. Ten chapters done, edited and completely out of order. Yeah, this is going way too slow... I wanted to finish this book before I go off to college in the fall, but I fear that I may not be anywhere near close to reaching this goal.

Any suggestions? Please, tell me!

Well, first off I would like to say hello to my newest followers: Ellie and Loralie! Hopefully my lame-ish blog is somewhat entertaining for you!

Well, now to start on my weekly posts! Every Thursday, by 5pm, I will give you a quote. Then, I'll tell you what the quote means to me. In the comments, you can elaborate on what the quote means to you. That way there might be a difference of opinions?

"There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere . . . "
This quote is one that I really like. Although I have not yet read this particular book, I have heard this quote. This quote can be found in Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors, and so this quote stands out to me.

This quote means that life is rough. We expect too much of ourselves and once we do not succeed, we blame ourselves, or we blame another. You know what? This is true. We do expect too much of ourselves. We do blame others for our misfortunes. However, we do get over it eventually, leaning into another dream and moer misfortune. However, when things do go our way, we start to expect more and more. Why is it that we do this? Is it just part of human nature?

Here's something else for you. This little snippet of writing is the first paragraph of my book. Enjoy!

"When Luke and I got together, everyone told us we would never last. We wouldn't admit it, but we did not think so either. He was the stereotypical jock, the quarterback who paid the nerdy freshman to do his homework for him. I was the nerd and spent all of my time reading or doing homework. Luke and I had a special relationship though. When we were younger-- I was seven and he was nine-- our parents threw us together while they went out. We grew up together."

Start of Weekly Posts... Suggestions

Okay, so I post quite often, but I am not sure of a whole... theme... to stick with for my posts. So I have a few options that I might go with as a weekly thing. I will be posting in between these posts (most likely) but I kind of want to stick to a theme for one post a week.

My first option is give you some of my writing. Whether it be just a paragraph from this book that I have been writing for the last few years, or even just a short poem I came up with on the spot. If I have comments on the writing with constructive critisism from anybody, I will then reflect on what I have read and change what needs to be changed. This will help me get my book done faster, I hope.

My second option is kind of cheesy. An inspiring quote for the week, one that I have found in my journey as a reader or one that is my own that I wish to share with you.

My third option is non-existant at this point. I can only come up with the first two, and maybe I will use this third option to, if I have any more followers join me on the way, answer questions that any of you have. If you leave a comment on the post for the following week, I will answer any questions that you have: advice or even answer questions about what I am writing and such. For example: if you comment on this post, I will answer your question in next week's post, and so on and so forth.

I might need help getting new followers. So, if you like my blog so far, please recommend it to anybody you think might like it.
