There's A Draft.

I can't speak for every part of the world that experiences glacial or near arctic like weather, but here in Illinois it has been ridiculously frigid lately. Between the wind and the cool weather, going outside has been equivalent to having icicles piercing through the flesh on one's face. It has not been pleasant at all. Fortunately, though as Spring has officially begun, I am hoping that the weather will begin to earnestly warm up. Work today was very busy and very productive now that I am emerging from training and diving right into the daily grind of what we do at my place of employment. Luckily enough for me I was busy, but not stressed or overwhelmed as I was initially on Monday, when the weight of everything came crushing down on me like a lead brick. I'm still attempting to find a consistent regimen for my life, but it is difficult considering my current circumstances. I have a feeling though in April that I will be able to begin to nail that down concretely. I can't really say that I have done much in the way of writing unfortunately as of late; motivation on that angle continues to be hard to find. I think I'm tired more frequently because I'm working five days instead of four now, and I'm not certain if it's just psychological or truly working that extra day that does it in for me. Having three days off is more preferable, even if I work longer all of the other days, but that's just my own point of view. As you can see from the picture next to these words, I watched Ratatouille this evening after of course my mother (who is visiting) made this deliciously scrumptious dinner of pasta, cheese, and Italian sausage; she also made key lime cheesecake, but I still remain too stuffed to try it yet. I really enjoyed that film, and I noted that although I am not a huge food eater, I certainly do love to cook and bake food for people. Not certain why, but everyone I cook for seems to be alright with it. Oh, less than a week and G.I. JOE: Retaliation will be released in the theatre, and yes I am very eager with anticipation about this film being released. I really enjoyed the first film (unlike many people), so I am really hoping that having "The Rock" & Bruce Willis in it doesn't kill it, even though it is an action film, and those men are action film stars. Anyways. The world is still around, Syria's civil war looks like it might be entering the weapons of mass destruction phase, North Korea's threatening to use theirs, and meanwhile the U.S. federal politicians can't figure out how to straighten up the budget. All in a day's work I suppose. There it is folks. I wish I could share more about my job because it is so interesting, but everyone these days is becoming so sensitive about words that I dare not risk it; I wan't to keep this job so I can eventually return to San Diego. Good luck and goodnight.

History and Lore of Valyria (Game of Thrones

History of House Tyrell & Robert Baratheon's Rebellion (Game of Thrones)
I thought that all of this was rather fascinating, and there's more of them on YouTube if you're interested in that sort of thing. I guess being the writer and lover of history that I am is why I find these sorts of things so interesting.
