    I started a blog! 😀 https://arbitraryfairy.wordpress.com/

    • YOU WHAT
      *screams*
      xD

      @ariella-newheart I came to your profile to say, hey! How are you doing? Because I was thinking about a bunch of Parimis this morning and boy I am so happy I did.

      • @evelyn Hello! It’s so good to hear from you! I am doing quite well. Having graduated high school, I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to do with myself, but my blog has been a good creative outlet.

        How are you? What’s new?

      • @ariella-newheart Wow, congrats on graduating! That’s one huge accomplishment. Did you actually get a ceremony? 😛
        What’s new… driving? xD
        I finished my driving course over this whole pandemic thingy and now I’m keeping track of hours and am about one fifth of the way to getting my full license. Beyond that, finishing this year of school, getting ready for next year of school, and writing as much as I can.
        Have you been working on any writing projects beyond blogging?

      • @evelyn I had an online graduation! It was not what I was expecting at the beginning of the school year, but it accomplished what it was supposed to. 🙂

        Ah yes, driving. I’m getting more comfortable with the activity, though I’m nowhere near ready to get my license. It’s awesome that you’re making progress, though! It will be exciting when you can finally drive wherever you want whenever you want, right?

        I have been madly editing my second book while preparing my first book for self-publishing eventually this summer. I’m getting closer to that goal day by day. It’s exciting to see it all finally coming together. 😀

      • @ariella-newheart Oh interesting! I heard that some people were doing that… did it go smoothly? Did it feel sufficient for wrapping up lose ends?

        Oh yeah I’m /very/ excited. xD I’ll be planning coffee dates, and museum and hiking trips like every week.
        (okay not that often but still pretty often xD)

        Ooooh WOW. YOU HAVE TO KEEP ME UPDATED. Is this the one with the wolves?? Or the five book series one?
        *squeals*

      • @evelyn It did go smoothly! We recorded the video in one day and it aired the next week. Everything was well put together and I enjoyed it.

        Thanks for your enthusiasm! The story that I’m editing is the first in the five-book series! My last few beta-readers are going through the book and I have a friend who is going to help me figure out how to self-publish. 🙂

    • @ariella-newheart That’s fantastic! I’m so glad it worked out.
      And I guess the bright side is that you have bragging rights that trump everything “oh yeah i graduated in the great pandemic of 2020 which meant graduating online” 😛
      Reminds me of the old saying “when I was a kid we had to go uphill to AND from school” or something like that… xD

      AWESOME. Let me know when you publish it. 😀
