Work at STAWA has gotten a little quiet. Part of me is a little bit over working there. Don’t get me wrong, I like working at STAWA, I’m just in a personal funk. I’ve just been feeling blah about a lot of things. I think it’s partly because I’m not feeling motivated to do anything lately. Work, writing, hanging out with friends…I just want to crawl into bed and sleep…and I’m not even tired or anything. I’ve had a few off nights, but I’ve been sleeping well lately, so it’s not that.
I’m loving working at Kids Inn. Maybe that’s it. I need to rethink my position in the workforce. Perhaps I should go fulltime into childcare? I don’t know. I really like working where I’m at right now. The kids are great, even though some of them can be right little so-and-so’s sometimes. But, I really, really enjoy working there, nonetheless.
Guess what? I’m going to Soundwave next year. And guess what else? Avenged Sevenfold will be there. Seeing them live will definitely make my life. I have to say, seeing them live will most likely trump seeing Simple Plan.
The bittersweet thing, though, is that I won’t ever get to see Jimmy ‘The Rev’ play with them. I’m sure Mike Portnoy will do the drummer justice, but I can’t help but feel gypped that I never got the chance to see A7X as the full band.
It will be an experience, though. My first major music festival. I never was ever interested in the Big Day Out, or Southbound or any of those others. The bands didn’t really excite me. I would like to see Eskimo Joe and The Living End, though.
I think I’ve used the word ‘though’ a lot in this blog… oh well. My writing has improved since I first started back in…um…probably 2000 or even before then. I started writing semi-serious fics back in 1999, even though [there I go again with that word…] it was kind of silly stories about my crush…and talking animals and stuff. [Stuff is a good scientific term. And ‘thing’ is as well…] But, I can tell you I have definitely gotten better, and that’s not boasting. I can see the improvement.
I have so many ideas floating around in my mind, but none of them I can really pin down. My latest venture is exciting, though.
It’s called Shadows Creed, and is a fanfic [A7X], but the premise is so different, to me at least, that I reckon I could write it as an original.
The basic gist is this: Bands are outlawed. Politicians are using solo artists to garner popularity. The law is upheld by The Creed. The Creed is a force responsible for eliminating renegade musicians. One man decides it’s time for a change. Time to crush the oppression and bring rock and roll back into the world. There is one problem. This one man is The Creed’s most trusted.
So, there it is. Of course, the story I’m writing now is based around the guys in Avenged, but I could so easily modify it to use my original characters. But, I will probably endeavour to work on the idea later on in the year.
I also want to try and write an all Aussie based fic. But, we’ll see.
Anyways, signing off, g’night all.
