Making History

Thursday, April 2, 2009
It's April already!! Did anyone pull a joke yesterday? I didn't. But then, I'm not much for pranks . I always feel bad about them afterward.

It feels like the world's playing one big prank on me, though. I keep waiting for someone to say "gotcha" because recently, there's been about five things that have happened that seem unreal. Some good, some not-so-good, and some, just... there. Only about one of these changes will probably make history books, but they're all big differences in my life.

First of all, it snowed this past weekend. We haven't had snow here most of the winter and finally Spring comes and we get our big "winter" storm for the year. Weird. A nearby high school had their prom on Saturday, and they could've been the only class to claim they went sledding after the dance. This kind of weather just doesn't happen here this time of the year.

Second of all, there's the whole economy thing where the government pressured that big wig automobile CEO to resign. That's never happened in the history of the United States. So, that's a record-maker there.

Then, I also saw on the news that the biggest town near me isn't going to have its Fourth of July Fireworks show this July due to lack of budget. And this is usually a spectacular show. I mean, you have to be, like, a mile away to properly see all the fireworks. So that's a bummer for me.

And last, but not least, I've completed the "editing" phase of my book, The Stillburrow Crush. It's now headed into "production" and soon, it'll get a release date set up. That's my exciting news by the way. Before we know it, my first book will be out in online stores, ready to sell to the public. It's as scary as it is exciting.

That's what's happening in my corner of the world. Anything life-altering or history-making happening to you?


  1. I just sent Dream Man to production, too. Perhaps we'll have release dates that are close to each other.


  2. Oh, good!! I hate experiencing new things alone. This will be nice to have someone familiar nearby.

  3. Congrats on your book!
    It is a very, very weird time right now. A lot of odd things happening to a lot of people.

  4. You said it. I'm beginning to forget what normal feels like.

    And thank you for the congrats!!
