On A Personal Note

I'm feeling pretty awesome today. Second day in a row, I've met my Mini Goal of 500 words. Actually, I exceeded it, hitting a bit over 700. So far. I might keep going, since I'm feeling so awesome. How are your Goals and Mini Goals coming?

On a very different note, how do you all feel about bugs? Me, I don't usually mind them, as long as they're not huge, potentially painful, or on me. I mean, I'm pretty chill. I've held a cockroach, for crying out loud. However, the building I've moved into in Undisclosed Location seems to be experiencing minor bug issues. Namely, there's the occasional cockroach. This has led to something even more annoying -- a lot of screaming. Some people just can't take the sight of bugs.

I have dubbed this The Cockroach Wars. (Not that I'm even sure that what they're up against is, indeed a cockroach, because to me it looked like an over sized beetle, but they all call them cockroaches, and who am I to judge. If the 100 Years War can last 96 years, this can be The Cockroach Wars.) For the record, I don't kill bugs. I just don't like it. So, when everyone's freaking and yelling, 'someone kill it!' I'm the one saying 'chill. it's just a bug.' But then I have to get the bug killers anyway and cover my eyes during the carnage.

But, I'd like to say, on the record, "Guys, you're at least 25 times its size. I think you can take it."


  1. Congrats on reaching your mini goals. I've been revising, so my goal this week was to get three chapters revised and edited and off to my crit partners. So far so good. Bugs don't bother me, but mice, well, they are another story!

  2. I used to have a pet mouse, and I liked it. It was cute. I never thought I'd have a problem with rats, but my neighbor got some, and those turned out to be another matter entirely. They have really strong tails!
