I am only a little bit awake this morning. Coffee is slowly working it's way through my system, I hope.
Also, how is it I actually go to bed earlier than normal yet feel more exhausted than if I had less sleep? Maybe I don't need as much sleep? All I know is that I am so tired this morning I am leaning my head on my shoulder because I am too tired to hold it up. Looking at my screen somewhat sideways is new, not that interesting, but still workable. At least until I get a crick in my neck I suppose. I don't like being tired :(
Also, going to bed last night, I accidentally hit my big toe on the edge of the bed frame. PAIN. I mean, the kind of pain that took like 10 minutes before it wasn't so bad that I wanted to cry. And it wasn't like I rammed the damn thing. I seriously wasn't paying attention and the toe (bottom of big toe) went to step on the edge of the bed but only got the edge of the edge. Hope that made sense. So it felt like I ripped off the bottom half of my toe. I was basically breathless with it, and all I could think of was how to explain the type of pain it was (sad but true) - categorizing it into things like: Flashes of light in your toe that hurt, that sensation of pins and needles after a limb fell asleep - only more intense and pinpointed to very specific areas, shooting pains as the pain slowly faded into normal ranges, the bottom being ripped off just with no blood. I was waiting for some kind of blister or bruise or something. Alas, nothing. It hurt to move it, so I didn't. It hurt to put that foot on the bed, so I kept it on a pillow for a while. It still hurt this morning too. Nothing too bad now, thankfully, but damn.
Now, my left foot is definitely the unlucky one. I don't know if that's because it's a smidgen larger than the right (or maybe shoe makers make the left shoe a smidgen smaller??) but I always seen to have problems with it more than my right. Maybe it's because I'm right handed, gods only know. Anyways, because of things like repeatedly breaking my 2nd largest toe while in HS/Marching band or always spraining my ankle somehow, I have tattoos on both of those. I have music notes on the toe and tribal butterflies (4 of them) on the ankle. I wonder if I should get the whole foot done or something and see if that helps. Stupid foot.
Goodreads is not liking me this morning, saying it's system is overloaded. I have 3 messages I need to send responses to, but I guess those are going to need to wait until later on today. :P
I think I just sat here for about 6 minutes staring at the screen but not even seeing it, I'm so tired. Wow. Maybe if I chug the coffee??
I think I need to use my Spoonk acupressure thingy when I get home today. I do like it a lot and I've noticed that my shoulders/back have been tight this week. What's 6000+ sharp little needle type things compared to that O.o
I'm still adjusting to this Amazon Affiliates thing as well. I have no idea if it helps or not. If at some point I actually get $$$ in from it, it will just fuel my book/reading addictions :D
I am about 150 pages away from finishing another book, which means it will be done tonight/this afternoon :) - I wonder if I can read while I am on the Spoonk??? I totally read faster those books I like and enjoy. I am reading another book right now for a GoodReads author that I am just having the worst time with. It's a new author and can totally see how certain things need a little bit of help, but damn. If I can barely force myself to read 86 pages, something I can do in less than a hour, WTH is wrong with this book. I'm sure my review will reflect some of that. I do like the premise behind the main idea. It's just the writing that needs someone to help the author get a better flow with. I have have completely re-written thousands of words or wiped out whole sections/chapters when I was writing/working on my book (which gods know if I ever finish) but that was because I could tell it wasn't moving right. It wasn't doing what I wanted it to do. Maybe it's because I read so much and from so many incredible authors that when I come across someone that needs that kind of serious assistance I get flustered. I think I am supposed to read her 2nd book as well, and I have done that in the past where the 1st book might not be full of the awesome but kept reading to see if it developed into the awesome. Many times it has, very few I've had to put down and cross that particular author or series off my list of things I want to read (and those have usually been things with a very Christian theme, things that are not just a religious theme (those I can handle, fantasy and sci fi can have anything in it) but the ones that are basically shoving the Christian God down my throat - yeah not so much). So, right now I'm kind of torn if I want to read the 2nd book. This one, it's just painful to read. I wish it was printed and I had a red pen.
my currently-reading shelf:
Once I have this and the other books I've promised to read for other GoodReads Authors, I am going to see if an author needs a Beta Reader. I am on that group at GoodReads and at least then I might be able to give better/more valuable feed back vs. just a review of a finished work.
Ok, time for me to get more coffee (which I almost never do, lol) and see if I can get some work done for a little while ;^D
