23, 24, 25...

A word of warning to all those who read this blog, the posts might be a little short and clipped and some not at all after Wednesday. I have to work Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and I have to close on those days too. That means that I'll probably be too tired to post anything long. But enough about problems.
Writing wise, I've still been working on Zhivtor, but as of yesterday it came to a standstill because of college applications and work. But my writing didn't stop. I have the coolest teacher in the world for an English teacher, and he has set aside three days a week for the entire class to write. I just finished one short story that took me a week to do, and I've got an idea for another one. I'm hoping to find a magazine to sell them both to.
Reading wise, I'm halfway through The Outstretched Shadow book one of the Obsidion Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory. It's pretty good. It's a little slow at the beginning as it sets everything up, but now it's going at a fine pace and I find myself having a hard time putting it down. After I'm finished with that I want to finish The Elf Queen of Shannara by Terry Brooks.
In movie news, I really want to see the new movie The Number 23. Not only is it a really interesting suspense movie, but it has Jim Carrey, famous comedian, playing the serious role. I love it. And all the info they present is interesting. According to the movie, our lives seem to revolve around the number 23. Examples: Julius Caeser was stabbed 23 times, it takes the heart 23.4 seconds to pump blood through the body, and if you add up 2+3+4 it equals 9. 23 is the nineth prime number. William Shakespeare was born on April 23, and died on April 23, and one famous American basketball player--Michael Jordan--had the number 23 on his jersey. It's interesting, and I might look into it further, just to see how many coincidences I can find.
In tv news, I want to rent the first season of 24, because I hear that it's really good. I don't want to start watching it now, because I usually need to see things from the beginning, and I'd probably be missing out on something. So the next time I go to the movie store, I'm going to rent 24.
So that's it for now. Wish me luck on the job.
