don't want to think about it, don't want to talk about it

i was planning to write about the busyness of my weekend. about my brothers sleeping over. about going laser tagging (for the first time!) and miniature golfing and to a burger competition. about tae kwon do graduations and the karate kid. but somewhere between the moment where i thought, "i really should blog something" and the time that i actually got on here, in which i ate lunch, finished a book, and watched girl in progress, well... i just don't feel like it anymore. i don't feel like doing much of anything.

i'm still in the period of trying to pretend that school does not exist and that i have no responsibilities outside of pottery class (i actually really like a bunch of the stuff i made this time. i might even devote a post to them if i ever get around to taking pictures. to anyone who cares, i finally made and glazed and got back my ice cream sandwich box and though it is too small to be a cookie jar it is still totally awesome and i love it.) and my family. it was pretty easy for a while, but suddenly school people are trying to contact me and talk about academics and i'm trying my hardest to say, "nooooo leave me alooone. it's summerrrr" in a dignified manner, but i'm not really sure if there is one.

i'm signed up for camp nanowrimo this july. i think i am going to use it to flesh out and  also edit my 2011 nano novel, but i might change my mind and use it to whip out a first draft of this novel idea i discussed with my brother almost a year ago that he keeps asking about. i think writing first drafts may be my favorite thing ever. and i have that creative itch where i wanna make something, so that should help. no ideas or real motivation to start anything yet, but the itch is there.

speaking of camp nanowrimo, for those of you who have "always wanted to try nano but just don't have the time" july is generally less busy than november so you should give it a shot. you won't regret it. i promise. and  camp nano is a lot less structured (i feel like that's the wrong word) than the regular nano. you can write fiction, non-fiction, poetry, short stories, whatever. you can create your own word goals. people have used it to research and to study for their gres. (i should probably use it for something academic, but i refuse.)

ugh. school.
