Report 137: Movies can influence your dream. And make you a badass motherfucker.

I had a dream that I was in the mall with my best friend, we were look in a new tiny shop that would sell purses and I was looking at a beige one cause they where really nice looking. It was getting late and me and my friend decided to leave after I did my purchase. Had a weird argument with the cashier that wouldn't use my debit when she just served a men before me acting all dumb like she didn't know how to use it. When she finally got a clue and start the transaction, the whole place lost power. Everything went dark. It was closing time, so not a lot of shops where open now and the tiny shop had the railing up, ready for closing after I was done. BUt there was something weird outside. It was to quite. Slowly, me,my friend, and the cashier walk toward the doors leading outside. TO ONLY BURST A GIANT MOTEHRFUCKER MONSTER!

That...thing looked a lot like the monsters in the Scooby too movie. It was huge, three time the size of a human and was growling and screeching, the leftover people in the mall was panicking and running away. I pushed my friend back in the tiny shop ( the cashier was eaten.) and hid behind the counter until the monsters where further inside.

The exit was block because of debris. I stoled my purse I wanted to buy and slide it over my shoulder, made the strap short like that it was just under my arm. My best friend did the same. We manage to go into other shops. We break in, breaking the doors, not really caring since you know THERE IS GIANT MOTHERFUCKER MONSTER IN THE MALL. I stoled a gun and a shoulder strap, setting it all up. I remember my friend freaking out asking if I even knew how a gun worked? I told her NOPE and pack a bunch of ammo clips in my stollen purse. My friend did the same, and pack a torch and a bear knife. I remember everything from the dream in super detailed and its scary. I took a smaller torch. the place was getting darker from the sun setting and we still could hear the monster moving about, a lot  things getting destroyed and smashed.

Like we where fucking FBI trained me and my friend tried to get in further in the mall, knowing that in a bigger shop Zellers or something that they have a receiving in the back, and wanting to leave through there. We were ambush in the middle of the Zellers, fucking using ninja move and shoot that thing dead. FUcking scaring the shit out of me. That thing is huge, wrinkly and scary. We moved the dead monster behind a counter and continue toward the back. until we got in the receiving which was in chaos and pitch black. We went all in the back until I noticed a person inside a room in the far back. There was too much junk blocking the exit door so I open the door, scaring the shit out of the men inside. We barak the door and stayed there for a few hours until we heard some noise. I had a fight with my friend because I wanted to check it out but she said it was to dangerous with those things outside. But I argued back that the the noise was different, more quite then the huge barrel the monster makes. So I want out, giving orders that the other doesn''t open the door to anyone unless its me.

And it was a bunch of cops, outside we yelled at each other gun drawn out. I didn't want to stand down. Expecially when they said there was no monsters out there. I woke up then, with me glaring at cops because they didn't believe me when there was giant motherfucking monsters out there.

I think I need to watch Hawaii five-o before going to bed....and scooby doo's movies XD At least I didn't wake up scared, I was pretty calm in my dream.Like I knew what to do even though I had no training except from watching cop movies and tv show.

Report 136: On the island.

(picture not mine, I googled it. Confederation Bridge)
We've been living on the island for more then six months now, and I finally place paintings up on the wall! Well two. ANd I laugh since the two I placed first are made by my best friend that she give me when she moved out of the apartment few years ago. I also cleaned up my office, I changed a few things around so now I can actually close the door of my wardrobe.

I've been writing lately, but not on what I should be actually working on, oups. I wrote the full outline for the second book of my Ghost Trackers series. Then I worked a bit on the first novel, but I should do more then that. I just been...focused on something else, mostly homework since mid term have passed and now I need to study for exam that will be coming quicker then I though.

I did apply for some jobs on the island, since me and scott talked and we agreed that we want to stay for another year. We love our apartment and the island, we don't want to move out. Yes it would be easier on us if we would stay in New Brunswick, but it is our decision and we love living here.

Scott is working his way to try and get an assistant manager job where he is working. NO one really believes him when he asked because he only been working for them for a couple of months, but he is dedicated and works hard.  I'm also going to have an interview ( via SKYPE! :D) next week. Totally sure it was today but then I check the email again and it was March 7 so I was like: Daannmm.

Nothing much happen in the month, except for the "reading week" which is their version of March break. I had plan to read all my books but instead I just...tumblr all day and clean the apartment. Fun times. Okay yes I got skype finally when I was talking with my best friend where I missed the sowing machine loud noise. She said "why not?" and it made me download skype but I didn't even call her yet, I got a call from my mom and now they are calling at least once a week or every two weeks or so.

its awkward, because I have no idea what I can talk to them. I just find it funny because every time they call scott is working at nights so they miss him. And I mean, there is so much I can talk about two classes. I could talk about my progress in my writing but the only thing that interest them is if my grammar is perfect, not the story ( which is depressing, so I keep it to myself).

For valentines day, Scott changed the plan at the last minute, we had previously planned that I would have cooked him a dinner at home while he worked until 5, but then he wanted to go out. And I was like, your kidding me! Its Valentines Day! so yeah, we got no place at all, even if I tried to call in advance for reservation, but not only was it Valentines day, but it was Kids eat free day ish. NO PLACE AT ALL. We ate at McDonalds. I got books, I let him get a DLC for Skyrim.

I FINALLY GOT A BOOK BY JOHN GREEN! I got Paper Town. I still didn't read it since I'm half way into Cinder like a week ago. And I still have a bunch of books I want to read that are all placed accordingly on my desk.Its quite pretty.

Anyway I have to go, one assignment needs to be written and a outlines has to be planned.

Take care,

Report 135: New Years! And 2012-2013 goals reflection!

There is this theory, in NaNoLand, that the more busy you are the more achievement you make. In 2012 I had a few writing goals, and I can say I achieve a lot of them. THough I am ashamed of myself since I only work on the one that is consider easy. I work hard on my revision, that is true. But I could do a lot more. I could work a lot more on it. Ever since I started University I have been very busy, and the writing kind off took a stop.

This year, I am still not sure or have a good...idea structure I guess. I have three class this semester and they are taking most of my time. But I want to edit and post some of my stories I wrote for NaNoWriMo 2012, and to go back on my novel revision. I will have to reread basically everything to go back to the stage I left, but it be fine. I actually had a dream that make a better ending then the one I originally had. And I probably will try to make a few more scenes. Since I know that my Ghost story is about Daniel discovering he is Half ghost in the private institute for Ghost Trackers. However, I don't really know how to proceed with the school part of it. Or even how to make the evil bad guy a bad guy. ( except you know the part where Gregory( bad guy) is actually sucking the souls of everyone.)

It still could do a lot more work for me to be able to write it properly since I kind off just jump in it with out a good grasp of the back story. And the back story is actually important. Some what. To make sense of everything else anyway. There is also the problem of, because I am taking so much long brakes between revision I have a more longer time to brainstorm and change my mind. Which both sucks, and amaze me. Since I came up with much better idea everything, but sucks since it basically change the whole story all over again. I'm sticking with the original story I wrote in pen fro the first time. Since it is the story I originate and liked, and using my other brilliant idea for sequel of some sort. Because hell if Ghost exist in these world, there is bound to be more magical creature in existence am I right? Right.

In other note, my boyfriend is going to apply for the work force ( as a cook) and we are thinking of moving again, meaning that my studies will be either on hold or transferred again. Its just...complicated. I wanted, when I apply to UPEI, to get a degree in English like that I be a better writer. I took some Psychology classes and I just had the misfortune to tell my family that I really enjoy Psychology and now, well, everyone is on my back about time, and deciding what I really really want to do with my life and about money,loan and a bunch of crap. MY main goal when I apply was to get better in English. Yes I enjoy Psychology immensely, but it is not for me. One, I can't even read about the nano transmitter and drugs effect with out having a small panic attack, less studying it for the rest of my life. I don't think they understand the concept of emetophobia.

But anyway, my point is, if we do move back in New Brunswick, I don't know if I should continue my study in English language, or go to the workforce and work on my novel. Since I did get better in english amazingly, but I still have a lot of work to do. A Lot.

OMG did you know that my Microsoft word document always automatically change my 'a lot' to 'alot'! It drives me crazy!

Anyway, (/cough cough) I still have time to brainstorm. I will talk about it with scott and see his opinion.

Except for that, my holiday was good! We surprised my mother from coming home earlier then planned ( much earlier) it was fun, made her day. I had a lot of great gift! Teen wolf season 1 in the shelf and a giant owl pillow :D I also received a lot of books and a gift certificate for Chapters ( that I used the next day for Cecelia Ahern recent books I was missing YES). I hope everyone had a great Holiday and New Year! I will be changing my goals page soon and also talk about my classes! My English Linguistic teach is AMAZING! People probably think she is on the side of crazy but I love her, oh my god.

Take care!

Steph :D
