I'm pretty obsessed with the video game, Modern War. During the month of December I was able to achieve some fairly significant achievements on my main profile. The MW maintainers made me very happy when they decided to bring back some of the limited edition buildings. I've built my base up to the point to where when limited edition buildings come available, for the most part I'm able to immediately acquire them. One of the buildings I REALLY wanted was the Taj Mahal. The first time it was made available, I didn't even have a MW profile, so obviously I missed out on getting it.
A few days ago I FINALLY got the opportunity to get it for my own base. For a while now, I've been seeing this beautiful blue building on my allies and rivals bases alike. I've wanted this building. The first picture of this entry is the Taj Mahal sitting on my base. I went ahead and purchased a few trees, sandbags and lamp posts to further decorate my base.
The other two screenshots here are many of the other limited edition buildings that have been made available again until mid-January. I went ahead and bought many of the others I didn't already have. I also have a secondary profile, that is sadly neglected m,sot of the time. Some of the buildings I didn't put on my main profile, I put on my other profile. One of mt goals is to build up my other profile. That poor little avatar is so weak.
I know that in the grand scheme of things, success in playing a video game doesn't amount to anything. However in the negativity that can bog down a persons life, I'm learning to embrace and celebrate the little things. Seeing that blue building makes me smile.

writing_adrift removed me from their friends list. I wish I knew why.
I simply adore being removed from the friends list of people I genuinely consider to be my friend for absolutely and apparently no reason. It makes me feel really good about myself. I wish I had of been given the opportunity to fix whatever "problem" was going on that prompted them to simply kick me to the curb.
This past week has simply been awful. I don't need this crap on top of everything else. I would never simply drop a friend for no reason. I don't need this right now. I don't need this right now. I don't need this right now.
My bad. I just pulled up the a Weather app on my phone. There's apparently a freezing rain going on outside. It's so loud! I wonder if there's a bit of hail mixed in this rainfall.
I had plans for tomorrow, but if the roads are frozen I'm not driving on them.
I almost got sideswiped by a crazy driver earlier today. I'm lucky I saw them swerve over when they did. I slammed on my breaks and they continued to merge without regard to me being there. I decided to let it go. I thought about calling the police to report a reckless driver, but in the end I decided to drop it.
My Mom told me about a job fair taking place at a local hotel for this past Friday. I got dressed up and got my resume notebook together. I drove all the way over there only to discover that they cancelled it. There were several people there that were just as disappointed as I. Sigh.
I can't sleep so I'm sitting in my bed at 2:30 in the morning reading the journals on my friends list.
I feel like I might throw up. I know that's unpleasant to read about, but it's my truth at this moment in time. I'm not taking it too seriously. I think it might be because I just cried really hard. It could be because of the prenatal vitamins, but I doubt it. I seem to be handling them very well so far. Yay.
I'm going to try very hard now to get some sleep. I have stuff I want to accomplish later this morning and I want to be refreshed in order to do it.
The most famous building in downtown Nashville is our Batman building. This photo was taken during the severe weather we experienced tonight.
Tornado warning issued for my area! I wish I wasn't such a nervous wreck in the face of a tornado. I feel quite useless right now.
I'm a tad bit on edge right now. There's a severe storm heading into Tennessee tonight. I just checked the radar. We are under a severe wind advisory. My grandparents are under a tornado warning. It is possible we could experience tornadoes too. I'm trying to remain calm. The severe weather threw a wrench in my plans for this evening. Mom and I usually have a movie night once a week. We were going to get together tonight, but the brunt of the storm is expected to hit during the times I would be out and driving. I opted to stay home. Obviously I'm hoping that during this storm that no people, animals or personal property gets hurt/damaged. I'm also REALLY hoping that we don't lose electricity. If we do, I will consider it to be a major bummer.
These past few days have brought about some really cool changes for me.
I have finally decided to commit to going back to school. This is a really big step for me. I've been to college before. I spent a semester studying Journalism. It didn't really inspire me. I'm a writer, but I'm not a journalist. I was dating Jenny at the time. She drained the life out of me and it made college less fun than I normally would have found it to be.
I am completely and totally psyched about college this go around. I've decided to get past my own ego and get the piece of paper that validates my intelligence.
I have finally reached a point in my life where I am 100% comfortable giving up pork. I'm confident that I won't be consuming pork products anytime soon.
I have been writing like crazy recently. I get up in the mornings and the first thing on my mind is my new novel. It's been such an amazing experience. It's been a completely new writing process for me and I'm tremendously proud of this project.
