Writing Dreams

Contrary to what the title may suggest, this entry is not going to be about my dreams for writing (i.e., getting published, being able to live off it, etc...), but about...well...writing dreams. Having a dream so vivid and real and amazing one night and being unable to resist the urge to write it down.  That is what this is about.

I'm not going to go into specifics about the dream I had Monday night because 1) I don't want anyone to steal the idea and 2) it's just too long and intricate and epic. Heheh. The easiest way I've found to describe it to someone is "It's about faeries, war, and the end of the world." Unfortunately, I didn't get to see how the dream ended, so I have no idea what happened. It was close, though. If I weren't such a good student (at this time in the semester, at least) I would have given into the urge to stay home and sleep all day, if only to see how everything ended. No matter how many times I woke up, the dream picked up immediately where it left off.  It's been a long time since that happened.

As you may or may not know, I've been a huge fan of the Fullmetal Alchemist fandom since the first series started airing on Adult Swim back in 2005. Before I was introduced to the wonderful world that is One Piece, exclaiming that the first series was my favorite anime of all time was easy, and even though that place has been taken by One Piece, I still hold a lot of love for the original anime series. The storyline is wonderful and fluid, and speaking as a yaoi fangirl, the end of the series and movie just reek of Roy/Ed. Heheh. The story of Ed and Al and their journey for the Philosopher's Stone pulls you in from the very first episode, and by the time you've made it through the arc with Tucker and Nina, you're hooked (and sobbing, but I won't elaborate in lieu of possible spoilers).

Oh, Jay Kim, my love and future husband. Even though you guys are still on the pop side of things, I can't pretend to hate you anymore. This song is just too freaking catchy, and you and your voice are far too gorgeous. <3 <3

Same Thing, Different Blog

Well, actually, I hope not. I don't know how many "blogs" I've had throughout the years, but most of them have died out within a year or two. This one was created for one of my final undergraduate courses, where the professor asked that we all keep a weekly blog. So this one will at least be going until the end of April, lol. Hopefully by then I'll be in the habit of updating and will be able to keep the ball rolling, even after the semester ends.

This blog isn't anything special. It will mostly be me rambling about anything that interests me--most likely anime, books/writing, and music. Be prepared for many links to youtube videos and lots of ranting about anime and books, lol. There will also probably be random entries about things I've taken notice of in the hum-drum of daily life. So yeah, nothing big or serious going on here.  Just the random rants, rambles, and reviews of a slightly messed up mind.

Anywho...I hope you all are doing well and staying healthy...and warm. It's cold and raining here. :( I'm ready for spring. Sunny days and flip-flop weather!!!!!!!! Heheh.
