I decided my male MC wasn’t suffering enough, so I made things worse before they got better?  I can’t really say better.  It’s more just less bad?  Or probably more eventually you get used to the pain.  Anyway, I ran into another slight snag in needing to know what’s going on in the background, so I’m working on that right now.  It’s actually making the series title more relevant so I can’t complain.

Project: Story Audio Recording
Title: Northern Lights
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Type: Fanfiction
Length: Novel
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Status: Editing
Progress: Adding in sound effects

Maybe I should put this officially on hold until I update again.  I actually did look at an audio/video project these past two weeks, but it wasn’t this.  I recorded a book review a few years ago that I’d meant to edit and post, but I still need to learn a good video editing software like Filmora or Da Vinci Resolve.

Project: Research & Essay Organization
Status: Organizing Reference Material
Progress: Figuring out what materials need to be read or can just be referenced

I was going to purchase two Jung books with the gift card my dad gave me for my birthday, but I can’t find it D:  I just opened the card recently, too, so I’m kind of salty.  I’m pretty sure it’s somewhere on my coffee table, but I just can’t locate the damn thing.  Those are the only two books on my general list that I need to read/reference but don’t own.  My next goal is to put the page numbers of everything I still need to read.  The going has been slow, but it’s going.

Project: Author Website
Name: Adrienne’s Authorly Adventures
Status: Active
Progress: Updating

I was going to update this, but I got thrown into Facebook jail a week ago for another dumb ass reason.  It was supposed to be a month, but I think they dropped it after I disagreed.  I have less than a day left until I can terrorize the Metaverse (ugh) again.

In Progress

  • Game Reviews: Final Fantasy VI – I made a little bit more progress.  I just keep chipping away.
  • Book Review: Alex + Ada: The Complete Collection by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn – I’m a little annoyed at myself for not taking better notes on this, because I really loved it, but I’m having a lot of trouble remembering some of the intricacies.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to jog my memory with the notes I do have.

So I’ve been sick this entire week.  I don’t think it’s covid unless the home test I took gave me a false negative.  My breathing has gotten really bad, and it was already not great.  Whenever the weather changes, my lungs feel it.  I also worked overtime last week and really pushed myself, which may have contributed to this.  Right now I cant go from my couch to my bedroom without getting winded, and when I tried to do my desk elliptical last week I couldn’t get through ten minutes.  I was able to do it a few days ago, so I suppose I am getting better?  I didn’t have much of a cough before but now I do, and I’ve been on and off feverish.  Things tend to stick around longer with me due to my reduced lung function, but if I still feel like this by Friday, I’ll drag myself to the doctor.

There was this stitch Tik Tok I found about the best line you’ve ever written, and I keep forgetting to look for that lol.  I want to do it.  If I do, I’ll post a link here 🙂
