– I’m plotting a new story. I have no idea if I’ll be able to do NaNoWriMo this year because my schedule is so full, but a new story has taken hold of me. It’s been in my head since early June, but an actual plot started to spontaneously develop overnight last week. So…we’ll see. It will be my first contemporary! (It’s about Youtube! and pizza! and dogs! and social awkwardness!)
– I’m trying out Grammarly. So far, I think I like it. Any other users out there?
– I always want to reread Harry Potter on September 1st. Here’s to the Hogwarts Express and Sorting Hat!
– No one should ever, ever space twice between sentences. It’s an archaic practice that originated from the monospacing of typewriters. But we have word processing now so spacing twice isn’t necessary. Or at least, that’s what I thought up until a week ago, when I learned that the current edition of the APA style guide recommends two spaces. Now, my life is a lie.
Not the best news. Rex tore a ligament in his other back leg a few weeks ago and has to have surgery. For the first two weeks he struggled with walking and standing up. He is getting better at walking now and is on pain medicine, but he’s back to no walks and no jumping. He’s scheduled to see a surgeon on September 8 and his surgery will most likely be on September 9. Then we’ll go back in eight weeks and he might need a second surgery on his other leg.
I’m planning to do a whole blog post on this, but in the meantime, I’ve set up a GoFundMe to help with the cost of his surgery.
Good Will Hunting (rewatch – love it)
Tell me how your August was! For recent graduates, how are you coping? How did you like Cursed Child? Did anyone else loathe AtBP? Can you believe I waited until 2016 to watch Spirited Away? Any fans of Grammarly out there? Let me know all the things!
