I'm rambling. I ramble on Mondays. I can't help it! Actually, if I'm being honest here, it isn't even Monday! I write my posts the night before they go up, so it's really Sunday night. Yep, I just revealed my secret. Although, many bloggers do this, so it's probably not surprising, ha ha. I'm sitting in bed watching Betrayal. I really, really like this show. I normally don't get into these "dramatic, cheat on your husband with his arch enemy" type shows, but this one is a little different. The characters are actually likeable, and the story-line isn't overdone. If you're looking for a good drama to watch, I recommend Betrayal.
In other news, my Friday evening was amazing because I got to catch up with two of my best friends from high school.
Taylor (on the left), only lives a couple of hours from me, but I still don't see her more than once every three months or so. Sherriah (on the right), got married and moved to Ohio after high school and I have only seen her three times since then! Of course there is texting and email and Facebook and such, but even with all of that it's difficult to keep in touch. Our lives are busy, you know? However, the beautiful thing is, we are still the best of friends when we are able to get together. It takes no time to get caught up, and the laughter always flows freely. Even though we are growing and changing as individuals, our friendship isn't affected. That is the most beautiful thing about true friendship. It transcends obstacles.
My Seminoles kicked some butt again on Saturday night! We played Miami, who is (was, ha ha) also ranked in the top 10, and we crushed them 41-14. The game started off a little shaky, and then Miami wanted to play dirty, but we still prevailed. Thank goodness! We have officially moved back to #2 in the BCS standings. Unfortunately, we may not stay there long because the rest of our schedule is full of easy wins. But...with any luck, we will be on the way to the national championships this year! I'm so proud to be an FSU alum, and so excited to see the 'Noles finally having the wonderful season that they deserve.
Okay, last topic for this rambly post...November is the also known as NaNoWriMo. Or, in full terms, National Novel Writing Month. Basically, NaNoWriMo is a challenge to write a full, complete novel in one month. I learned of this a couple of years ago, and I have always wanted to try it. I have two books that I work on when I have the time, and I can only dream that they will become something one day. Part of me wants to accept the challenge of NaNoWriMo to see what I'm truly capable of. I know I could do it, and the want is there. But I'm also skeptical because I have a full schedule between working full time, blogging, other writing, and other things I'm involved in. Are any of you participating in NaNoWriMo? Should I toughen up and accept the challenge? I really need some encouragement!
I'm off to get this week started out right. I hope you all have a great Monday, and I will see you tomorrow!
