Today is what day, again?

It's almost December.  Where does the time go?

It's been two years to the day that I've been a vegetarian who occasionally eats fish.

It's been slightly less than two years since I was accepted to medical school.

It's been almost six years since I was accepted to college.

It's been five and a half months since Gammy passed away.

It was my mother's birthday yesterday, which means that my birthday is in two weeks.

November was different from what I expected.  Somehow, the time went very quickly and I have no idea where it was spent.  I used a lot more of my time for studying, and what little extra time I had afterwards I let my brain relax with plenty of TV watching.  A few times I could literally feel my brain relax, the way a muscle you've held tight sort of melts away when you release the tension.

November just felt weird.

Here's to hoping December feels better, and to hoping that the new year brings all sorts of amazing things.

Crazy ideas

Here we go again.

All right, NaNoWriMo, I'll give it a whirl.  But this time, no literary dreams.  I'm going to write what I know best--a good ol' fashioned bodice-ripper.
