      I dearly need money, and short of my Father dieing (Which will not happen ever! Love that man way too much) or me Winning the Lottery (Ontario has surprisingly high odds for at least 1 mil) that ain't going to happen. My plan is to leave, leave Ottawa and leave all the shit that makes me depressed behind, I know by now that fame is not an option and that even though my biggest dream in the world is to become a working writer...it's probably not going to happen even if I did finally finish a final draft of anything. Competition in the publishing world is intense and millions of books get passed off as cheap, derivative and unimaginative. Books need desirability in order to be bought and published, a publisher has to look at a book and say "Wow...[Insert age bracket here] would love this book and it would spread by word of mouth alone." Besides, writing one book could be considered the easy part, its writing two or more books that are all good that stand up well to each other and can all have the same marketability.

      Taking an English/Writing course could help, I find myself annoyed that I will hit certain words and not know the spelling off the top of my head. As Gus and Burnie have complained, the internet only requires you to right click on a word underlined in red and it will fix it for you. Relying on this does not appeal to me, to have a vocabulary like Tycho would be awesome. Constantly reading isn't enough one has to strive for knowledge.

      On the Book list: Currently Reading Terry Pratchett stuff and lamenting that fact that I didn't read these books in High School.

      On the Game list: Nothing so much, might pick up something for the PS3 until I can afford a new Xbox.

      On the Music list: Dub FX awesome busker

      On the meh list: I'm getting tired of African-American customers who demand to call the cops at work and get dragged away from the very same cops they called because they are causing a public disturbance in a private building...sigh

      On the Hi list: Rooster Teeth staff, who I will have to get in contact with to see when would be a good time to drop by and say hi, I really want to vacation in Austin sometime next spring.

      So I have hit a block for writing lately, I think I need to get a laptop so I can write while on the bus because if I sit at home and try to write all that happens is that I start roaming around the internet or jump over to the Xbox and play some games....I need to get behind a story truly, know exactly what I want to write and how it will end, this half baked shit just ain't cutting it

      F over and out

      I suck at this shit, I can never give anyone a good list of what I want because I am an impulse spender.

      I sort of want to just leave it all you know? I want to just grab a couple thousand dollars and going to a new city and starting a new life where I'm not held back by the preconceptions of me. I love my girlfriend but at the same time I would abandon everything. Its a thought that tickles the back of my mind and I try to bring it to light every once and awhile so that I don't actually do it one day due to stress.

      just a thought.

      Posting a journal a day appears to be out of my reach as exhaustion friends and Catie make me forget to post.
