4373 / 50000 words. 9% done!

*sigh* So totally not closer to 25%. I'm crawling along, but it's to be expected. But here it is, 1am and I'm actually debating going to bed! I had a long talk with my friend John today about why the world seems so petty lately. It's odd, he sees a lot of things the same way I do. I haven't met anyone ever who does. It's nice to know I'm not really alone; maybe there are more out there.

But! I think I might actally be going back to school. If not Spring 2008, then definitely Fall 2008. I've got to research some Financial Aid first though. And I need to figure out what the hell I'm going to do with myself. I still have a few classes to get through for an AA before deciding what direction I'm going in. So many choices! I'm mediocre at many things, but there's little that I truly excel at. And I know what I enjoy, but my major problem is that I detest the school system in general. I'm a bad Ravenclaw in that I don't enjoy the pursuit of knowledge in all ways. But I enjoy the pursuit of my own knowledge...

So...I'm considering Marine Biology. I love the ocean and practically every living organism in it, yes, even on the cellular level though it's slimy and grimy and everything -imy. And it was the only science class I ever enjoyed. And if I take the research side of it, I can travel so many places!

Psychology. In an odd turn of events, I want to help people! I'm thinking the youth road, high school counseling or just teen trauma victims. I want to leave a mark on someone.

Language. I may not be as strong in it as others are, but I love learning languages...

Production, either stage or sound or...something. I want to be involved in it somehow.

Vocal Music. Teaching, whether it be directing choir or teaching music theory... Every child should be given the chance to learn music in some way or another. I want to give them that chance.

Photography. I have no experience in this field, though, so I'm not sure trying to get into it now would be beneficial.

So yes. That's what's ahead for me. Sort of. Maybe.

Sooo...I've been writing for the past four and a half hours, or trying to anyway, and I've only added about 1k words on to my attempt at a novel.

2866 / 50000 words. 6% done!

I'm definitely getting more done than I expected...but the novel itself is so...amateur. And I know I'm not any sort of writer, but it really sucks. =P Perhaps it's because it's of the young adult/youth genre...and a lot of times the writing in those isn't spectacular. But since I haven't focused my life on vocabulary and elegance of words, I'm not expecting that to come out in my novel.

I guess I'm okay with that, as my goal to write a novel was simply to write the novel, not to write a good one. And it's not like I'm going to have it published or even thinking of it, so that's a load off my mind. It's only the 13th. Let's see where my two days off takes me.

So so sad.

1725 / 50000 words. 3% done!

Definitely haven't gotten anywhere with NaNo...and my work schedule is only going to get more hectic the further into November we get. But...I'm hoping I'll get some inspiration before the end of the month. If I can get even 25% done before Nov. 30 then I'll be happy. But seeing as how it's taken me almost two and a half years to get 13k+ done on my Eddie Carmichael fic...well. I'm not getting my hopes up =(
