Getting engaged was the last thing on fifteen year old Addison Solomon’s mind when she’s whisked away to live with her father and his family in sunny California.
Her mind was focused on merely navigating a way through her new home, which happened to be the size of her old apartment building..
Then she meets Jackson Van Buren. He’s perfect; athletic build, eyes that draw you in and make you feel like the only person in the room, and then there’s his charm. Girls fall under his spell in seconds, but not Addison, she knows that he’s not quite right in the head.
What she doesn’t know is that her father dragged her into an arrangement that will tie her and Jackson together for life, all in the name of financial gain.
Yesterday I took a trip to the Grove in Stl where I stood outside in line for 4 hours. So the first 50 people in got to meet Lights!! Lights, if you don’t know is an electro pop singer or you might know her as the wife as one of the guitar players in Taking Back Sunday.
I’m so old.
But I had a lot of fun!!
I have come to accept a few things in life.
First being that Winter in the mid-west is now in late January to the end of February. Why does this matter? Simple because my work has decided to adopt an aggressive attendance policy.
This brings me to my next point, I”m already on a written Final for using my sick time. Now I have plenty of vacation and personal time left. There’s just something about waking up and being able to call off. Yep that’s me. Nice to meet you, I like to sleep in. This is my argument for being a writer.
Also have you heard about Mars 100? What do you think?
I can only imagine what this is going to look like. I can only imagine every space horror movie. I mean it’s Mars. Come on. Imagine the possibilities. I want to know who the 39 people from America are.
In other news I have to have my tonsils out. Who knows when? They were suppose to call me today, but didn’t, go figure. And then I found out I have irregular shaped red blood cells. No sickle shape, but….I’m worried. No answers as of yet.
Now I”m going to write until the wee hours of morning, because I can.
It’s almost 60 degrees out after being in the 30’s all week. Yes I have the windows open and I”m relaxing. I did take a mile long walk enjoying the weather. I might take another walk this evening. It just depends on how cold it is out.
In other news, I have had it up to here with walmart.com. I would NOT recommending purchasing anything from them oh like a treadmill. I had to call six times yesterday to try and get them to pick up the broken treadmill. And if they don’t pick it up by 2/26 they are going to withdraw the money out of my account for the cost of the treadmill. It’s so frustrating.
I plan on writing today and even working on homework for my next weeks classes. I am taking screenwriting and American Modernism.
What do you plan on doing this weekend?
Well here we are at the start of February. So much has happened, I don’t know where to begin. I guess at the beginning.
You know that lovely treadmill I put together? It died. I don’t know what happened, I was using it religously and the tread stopped moving. So I called and got refunded the money and they are suppose to come pick it up, but it looks like I’ll have to call and remind them again. I don’t want to be stuck with this thing. I plan on getting a new one at some point.
I am proud to report that I lost 16 pounds, woot but that too is going to be short lived. I do zumba, but I don’t feel like that is enough…I must admit I miss my treadmill.
Next bit of bad news, which is really good news I guess. I was told I had sleep apnea a year ago and have a machine and such. I found out today that I don’t. So what have I been doing for the last year? Wasting money on a machine that I don’t need. Ugghhh…And I have to get my tonsils and adnoids removed, fun fun.
The good new is that I recieved two A’s in my Grad classes, but I wonder if I am truly receiving a quality education. It’s through a university and is NON profit, which is better than what I was going to start with. I just don’t know. I guess I miss the classroom that i don’t have time for.
Next week starts a new round of classes. Screenwriting and American Modernism.
On a Funny note, Jimmy Fallon makes my day!!
