I know it has been about a minute since I posted anything new, but I just wanted to do a little check in. I have been pretty busy. I've been getting together some new content for posts for Diary while also getting something together with NERDSociety (though I am a bit behind on that.)
I've also been writing some stuff for Retro-Daze, if you haven't yet, go check them out here and here. I've been having a really great time with that site too.
So here's the thing. I've also been working on something to enter into a short short story competition. I've never entered a writing competition in my life. I've always been very nervous to do something like that as I feel like I am not really that talented to enter something into an official contest. Shit gets real when it is in an official contest, ya know?
I decided though that it doesn't matter if I rank in the top 12 or not, what matters is that I pour my heart into a short short story and swallow my fears and just submit it. Who cares? Right? So I've been working on something that I hope to send in before the deadline. We shall see!
There have also been other things that have kept me busy. I went to see my friend compete in a Pole Competition yesterday. I've talked before about my friend Patrick and the work he has put in to Pole Performance. He made third place in his division and the performance he gave was pure perfection. Once a video is up I will be sharing it with you all. It is the perfect thing for all you nostalgic lovers. I'm also just beyond proud of him because this was his first solo performance in a competition! We were all screaming for him. I had a grand old time. Later on that night, I also got to experience something with my family that is just pure excitement.
As I've mentioned before my family has always been a movie family. They take their movies seriously and it was only a matter of time before someone tried to make it work in the movie business. My brother was fortunate enough to work on the film the Dallas Buyers Club and he even ended up having a cameo role in the movie! It was a non-speaking part, but it was enough for us to want to rush out and see it as a family. (My parents rarely go see a movie together, and with the four of us seeing something together, that is even more of a rarity.)
So late last night we went to the late showing of the Dallas Buyers Club and we were all nervous, especially my brother, he wasn't sure what he was going to look like or what. But then all of a sudden there he was, on the big screen! And it was just magic. We were concerned that my mom would start screaming in the movie theater because sometimes she just can't help it, but luckily for the other patrons she simply let out a loud gasp and grabbed the both of us. I'm so proud of him. He is making his dreams come true. Also, if anyone is interested, the Dallas Buyers Club is a really good movie. It's sad, really sad, but there are moments of humor and a great deal of beauty.
That's sort of what I've been up to lately. I have some fun things in store this week though, so get ready! Toy Miss M will be partaking in her toy interviews and may or may not end up crossing paths with her arch enemy Velvet Sky! You won't want to miss it! Take care everyone.
