It looks like the WGA strike is finally coming to an end. They went back into negotiations on Wednesday and seem to have worked things out today. Now all we have is SAG-AFTRA and their strike. Hopefully with the WGA settled the studios can be more accommodating to the actors. I just want to see what was agreed on, I really hope the guild didn't back down on the things pertaining to AI.
Lucas has a game at 8 AM on Saturday. That kid is lucky I love him, as it means I have to be up at 7 on a Saturday. But, I'm excited to see him play. Granted t-ball isn't super engaging, but it's the first sport he's taking part in. I'm going to try and talk Kevin and Liz into signing him up for soccer when it starts next year in the spring. Kevin and I both played soccer when we were growing up and we both loved it. So I think Lucas would enjoy it, too. I also want to see if I can talk them into putting Gwen in dance classes. She's not graceful, but she's also not even 3 yet, so it isn't to be expected. But she likes to dance, and I think she'd have fun with it.
Family drama. Messages from a family member I haven't spoken to in over four years now, sending me cryptic messages about another family member at 11:50 at night as I'm on a call with Logan. So, that was a fun little excersize in how to get super stressed out and thinking the worst for a half hour before someone finally informs me that things are okay and nothing serious is wrong. The communication skills of some of my family members, I swear.
Nocturnal finally has a main page that is my own! It only took me eitght months to get done, but at least it's done. Much thanks to my love, Logan, for all his help with the coding and the writing. I'm really happy with how it all came out.
I'll probably wind up tweaking some things later on, but for now, it's done and I'm so glad with how it all looks.
It's so hard to get back into writing when I haven't really done it for years. I've written little poems, more like little snippets of thought, but that's about it. I want to write something special for Logan for his birthday at the end of the month, but it's proving to be difficult for me. It's not that I don't have things to say, because I do, but it's just so hard to express all that he means to me in words. I don't think I'd ever be able to fully articulate the way he makes me feel. And I struggle because I really want to try. I want him to know how much I love him, how my soul yearns for him when we're apart, how I only feel truly at home when he's next to me. But no words could ever do it the justice it deserves. I feel as though I've lost my eloquence, my ability to weave my words into a beautiful symphony, where my emotions sprang out from the page, and it's heartbreaking. I used to pride myself on my way with the written word, and now... Now I can't write something worthwhile. I'll still try, of course, but it just doesn't come out the way it did before.
After tomorrow, which will be another day in this 90s, we finally see the temperature dropping. This week will finish out in the mid 80s, and next week it drops down to the 70s. I'm excited. It finally feels like summer is relinquishing its grasp and autumn is truly rolling in. I live for autumn and winter, give me overcast days, and crisp, chilly air.
I promoted Vodka to an Assistant House Master in Nocturnal Retribution, because she's more than earned it. But it's her words in one of her messages to me that just really made me smile. I hope she doesn't mind that I shared a bit of her message here.
It feels so weird not to be seeing Logan this weekend. Granted, it means I can focus on things here a little more, maybe put some time into Starfield, catch up on some things I tend to put off. But, man, I miss him. I'm glad he's getting a full weekend with Mina though. I'm just selfish and want to see him.
I don't have to deal with your bullshit over a rating, so I merely took the steps to ensure that.
Bah, nothing got done. I set out to do things, and then they just don't get done because I would rather spend my time with Logan doing things we enjoy and not focused on coding and writing shit out. Our time together right now is so limited as it is, so I don't really feel bad about things here not getting done. I'll figure it out. If it means sitting myself down in front of the laptop and forcing myself to write out something, I'll do that.and then I can send it to him to go over and refine when he's free. So long as it doesn't really cut into what little time we get together.
Not making promises I can't keep, but I'm going to try and square away Nocturnal's main page tomorrow with Logan's help. I've put it off for far to long.
It's finally September! That means autumn is right around the corner, follower by Halloween, Thanksgiving, winter, and the best time of the year, Christmas and New Year's! This is the time I live for. It also means that at the end of the month I have Logan's birthday, then at the beginning of October, I have my mom's, Gwen's, and Liz's birthdays within days of each other. Right after Christmas is our two year anniversary. There are just a lot of things to look forward to around this time. All that really needs to happen now is the temperature to drop. It's still in the high 90s around here. Once that happens, I'll be in my element.
