a finisher

so recently i’ve started watching John Green play FIFA on Hank Games. i’m not a gamer, but when i do game, i do not play sports. watching someone play a sports game would have to be the most boring thing anyone could possibly do. unless it’s accompanied by the fabulous story weaving skills of John Green.
He tells stories from his life as though it’s a story from one of his novels. He introduces the characters, describes the setting, lays out the plot, and ends with some kind of moral or joke.
But while the true stories are fashioned fabulously, i’m in it for the fiction. All the players of the Swindon Town Swoodilypoopers have a story. star striker Bald John Green with his magnificent mustache who is married to his teammate Other John Green. Voluptuous Paricard and the epic romance he shares with his wife. Fat Lucas, the trusty goal keeper and recovering alcoholic. and my favorite, the womanizing, dedicated and loyal (to the team) “stone cold Cteve with a C Austin!”
there is a “gazette” that covers their games and they even have twitter accounts. John releases an episode almost every day, and i look forward to them.
the thing i have taken from these episodes, besides their entertainment value, is being a “finisher.”
when someone scores a goal, team manager John Green is often heard to say, “he’s a finisher!”
last week i remembered something i had forgotten to do, and therefore couldn’t complete it. as in i couldn’t just go back and finish it later. (i don’t remember what the thing was right now, but don’t worry about that. that detail isn’t necessary.) i looked down, shook my head sadly and said to myself, “i’m not a finisher.”
so now, thanks to John Green, i’m either a finisher, or i’m “not a finisher” in everything i do. 😛

overindulgence

so, Coffee Bean (& Tea Leaf) is a chain like Starbucks, but the coffee isn’t bitter and there’s a larger focus on teas.
back when i was 19/20 i would go to the Coffee Bean every day and regularly order a large sized chocolate ice blended drink, with chocolate syrup and caramel mixed in, chocolate syrup and caramel drizzled on the outside, a shot (or two) of espresso, with whipped cream on top. sometimes i would get chocolate covered espresso beans blended in just for fun.

i have one question: how the hell am i not diabetic?!?<!– text

>some day…

>some day, my blog will be sorted and i’ll be able to post on my own domain (chelseairl.com). *sigh*
i can’t even tell you how many hours i’ve invested in trying to get my fucking blog up on my site. seriously. it’s fucking ridiculous.

i’ve tried using the WordPress app that comes with my hosting service, i’ve tried manually posting it (both methods i’ve successfully achieved with two other hosting services) and nothing is working. if i was a complete n00b i… i would actually be more screwed, now that i think of it. because i would think i must be doing something terribly wrong. *sigh*

i guess i’m just going to have to contact my hosting service. i really can’t think of anything else i can do. WordPress won’t work. Blogger won’t work- oh! let me tell you a bit about my blogger woes!

so i thought, ok, till i can figure out my WordPress thing, i’ll just set it up to redirect through blogger. it’s a fairly simple process. no worries. this has actually been more frustrating than WP. because while with WP it could be one of a million little quirks (one misplaced character in the code, a software issue, etc.), blogger was actually showing up, and then disappearing. literally. i would enter the address to my blog, and for about 15 min. it would show it, then for an hour it would be gone. then it would magically be back. then it would be gone again. THAT IS NOT LOGICAL!!! it’s either set up correctly, or it’s not. it can’t disappear and reappear. that just doesn’t make any sense in any way and… yeah. that’s the point i gave up.

so, some day, hopefully soon, i’ll have my blog hosted on my own site. until then, i guess we’re just gonna have to go the good old fashioned Blogger route. <!– text

>still going…

>you haven’t seen any writing from me lately, but i’ve been writing every day. i’m writing character backgrounds and the histories of locations and about animals and monsters and items. i basically have to make an entire fantasy game. so i need to figure out the weapons and the armor and who can use what and how. what are the different classes strengths and weaknesses. there’s just so much to write before i actually write! i have so much to add to the timeline! so many scenes i have to add!
i hope all this work will pay off as much as i think it will. <!– text

>Wrimo!

>ok, so i’m not sure if i’m going to get any progress done on anything else, but i can at least write a blog post.
so, since everyone is gearing up for NaNoWriMo, this one chick found all the people in her circles participating in Wrimo and put them in one public circle. only people in the circle could see each other. all 250 people are adding each other. so… i gained 250 friends today. XD
oh, and if anyone’s doing Wrimo let me know so i can add you to my Wrimo circle.
also, this year i plan to go to some of the Wrimo events. at the very least i’ll be going to the kick-off, mid-month, and TGIO (Thank Gosh It’s Over) parties. we’ll see how many of the meet-ups in between i make it to.
i’m just so excited this year! i’m nervous that i won’t win, but not so much that i don’t think i will. i just hope i don’t get a block in the middle! there’s not much you can do if you get a block. :/
well i’m gonna go back to planning, plotting and character development! see ya when i see ya! <!– text
