Getting Caught Up

I realised that I haven’t written much in October but there was not much happening in my life these past weeks. I’m still too lazy on schoolwork and should definitely look for a thesis and I think I know where I’m going to end but I’m also not in a big rush at the moment. Agh, I’m too comfortable in my procrastinating ways and this weekend my uncle was/ still is here with his family so I’ve been hanging out with them quite a bit. My focus is still a bit lost but I fully plan on catching up with what I should have been doing this week. Thursday is a holiday over here which is always a good place to start with organising one’s thoughts and goals – or avoid it altogether and getting hooked up on Zombie fan fiction.

November will be NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month – and even though I’m not planning on participating I’ll honour all of the writers out there with doing a 30 day book challenge. I’m not sure if this is such a good idea as some of you may be too caught up in your writing while I spam your inboxes with a post every day. Here are the topics I’ll be blogging about the next 30 days:

In other news, I’ve been following the presidential race in the US because a) you can’t get around it and b) it’s quite entertaining and easier than our political races. Much has already been written about Mitt Romney and especially Todd Akin’s new definition of rape. I hope all of you who live in the US and get to vote on Nov. 6th know who to vote for. I’m going to throw a bunch of videos at you in the following of stuff I recently came across, so here it goes then:

First of all, let Joss Whedon, the creator of Buffy, explain to you how a President Romney would equal a Zombie apocalypse.

Then we have Tina Fey speaking out against Todd Akin’s attempt at redefining ‘rape’. I adore Tina Fey and this only makes me love her more (as if that were even possible).

Want to see a bunch of awesome actors telling you to sign the Bill concerning female reproductive rights? Then this is for you #drawtheline because it’s important. Sign the bill at http://drawtheline.org and tell your friends about it.

If you don’t know where you stand on marriage equality, take a look at this.

And last but not least, here’s Ellen making fun of the fact that Bic now promotes pens especially for women. We’ve been using man-pens all these years, can you believe it? Oh Ellen, you magnificent funny lady. She was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humour this month which she totally deserves.

Ok, this is enough for now, I’ll be in your inboxes daily in November. Take care, especially those of you in the vicinity of Sandy. Stay safe everyone!
