    Hello!!! Crazy Writing Week is starting again! Carter, Beth @beth20 , and I would love for you to join with us again! It starts on May 3rd.
    https://crazywritingweek.com/

    How has college been Synjon? How are you?

    • I don’t know if I’ll join or not. May 3rd you say? I might have finals and stuff around that time, so I might not be able to. We will see 🙂 College has been great! I really enjoy the labs and stuff. It’s pretty hands-on for a lot of it, which is really fun. And I’m doing pretty well. I’ve started recording my own music covers, I got my book published, and I’ve sold about 50 copies, and I’m applying for pharmacy jobs in the area. Plus, I’m working on a second book, which is moving along pretty slowly because I don’t know what I want the story to be yet. Overall, I’m doing pretty well. How about you?

      • @thedarkninja03

        Yes, May 3rd through 10th.
        Maybe you could join, just to say hi to Carter, and get the group back together? (Oh, he asked me to say- “Jominkreesa brother.” -to you.)
        You wouldn’t have to do anything for the competition if you didn’t have time. I might need to do that…

        That’s great college is great, and fun! And good job publishing your book! I hope you get the pharmacy job. (:
        That’s good you’re good.

        School’s been busy: Studying, and getting ready, for finals next week and the week after… Busy, busy. But it’s not awful.
        We also just got a puppy! She’s amazing. (:

      • Synjon!!! You have to join!!! =) @thedarkninja03

    • @thedarkninja03

      How is studying for finals going?

      • @thedarkninja03

        Hello!!! Have you taken all your finals yet?
        How are you doing?

      • Hey!!! I took finals, and passed all my classes with As and Bs, so I am pretty happy with those scores. I also got a new job at the pharmacy in Cornell, Wisconsin! I am doing really well. I only have one more semester of college, which involves two classes and two clinicals. My new job is awesome. I love it! I recorded some more music covers, as well as an original, which i did for school. It is about drugs XD. Prescription antivirals and antifungals to be exact. You can find it on my YouTube channel: TheDarkNinja03. I also started a side-business hydro dipping small items, which is fun. And finally, I figured out what I want to do with my second book, so I can start writing that more faithfully. Overall, like I said, I’m doing really well 🙂 How are you guys doing? Sorry I couldn’t join CWW by the way. I’ve been busy with the new job, finals for school, pursuing my other hobbies, and starting my side-business. It’s been a lot, but life has slowed down a bit now that school is over. If they had CWW next week, I could actually join this time XD

    • @thedarkninja03

      That’s good! I’m glad school and work are going so well. (:
      How are you doing now? How is your family?
      And it’s fine about CWW. (: Maybe you can join the next one?

      I’ve been doing fairly well! Actually up and down. School went pretty well. I got As in all my classes, except Chemistry, which I got a C in…
      I’ve been reading a lot this summer! And working on starting a business. Writing is going really good too! And I have an email list- OHHHH!!!! I have an email list!

      So… yes… dx
      There’s been some family junk happening. And… the United States just hurts right now. But, as of today, I’m doing pretty good!

      • @thedarkninja03

        Just checking in! How have you been doing Synjon?

        How is college?

      • I’m doing great!!! Sorry I didn’t reply for so long again (I’m really bad about talking on here 😂). I’ve been pretty busy at work, I just started working out, and I am still in writer’s block on my second book. I think I have more of an idea of where I want it to go though, so hopefully I will get that one written and published in a year or two. Other than that, college starts on Monday, I moved out and live on my own (kind of). I live in the chicken coop at my grandparent’s house 😆. Well, I live upstairs of it anyway. My place is really nice actually. It was meant to be a playhouse for us kids, but it got converted into a tiny home. So I got it made. My grandparent’s don’t charge too much for rent 😂. I’ve been doing a bit of gaming with my sibs. Might start my YT channel again. I’ve also started a little hydro-dipping business, which is going fairly well. Controllers are my favorite to do. I’ll have to figure out how to put pictures on here so you can see the house and the hydro-dipped stuff. As for my walk with the Lord, I joined a youth group, have been more involved in my friend’s church (even though that’s not my main one lol) and have been getting more faithful with reading my Bible plan. So, long story short, my life is going fantastic right now, and God has blessed me beyond what I ever could imagine. In spite of what is going on in the world right now, He has put me in a position where it can’t really hurt me or affect my life in a negative way. I’m also working on my musical skills to maybe put some of that out there too. So, busy but fantastic. How about you? You get that family stuff figured out I hope?

      • I just realized that I’m about the same place as last time I messaged 😂 just had some ups and downs along the way that I kinda forgot about. But anyway, I have gotten a little further than I was last time 😂 I did mean to do CWW this last time, but I was trying to finish stuff for school starting again and didn’t have the time. I had all kinds of lab tests and appointments, along with a stack of paperwork, so that kept me busy. As for the book, I’ve had writer’s block for awhile now, but I am getting over that now too. 😂 I’m very consistent, but I am moving forward.

      • @thedarkninja03
        Hey bro!! Haven’t talked in like… forever XD
        How you be? Anything change in the last five months?

    • @beth20
      Oh, goodness. Much has changed XD. I am doing great! School didn’t quite work out the way I had hoped. One of the teachers didn’t get along with me and my beliefs very well, and to make a long story short, I was dismissed from the school. However, with the way the world is going right now, I believe it is truly a blessing that I didn’t follow through with the schooling. Anything medical would be a dangerous place to be these days. Anyway, I am working at a local business running a screen printing press, actually making more money than I would be if I had gone with my schooling career. So, overall, I count the dismissal from school as a positive. I have been writing a bit more in my second book, finally pushed through that writer’s block and actually put words to the page. I also have gotten into 3D printing and sculpting. I am also a fan of dungeons and dragons now, and have run a few Christian games with my friends and family. I also have been working more on my music production stuff and am trying to get more involved in that locally as well. In other words, I am super busy and kind of all over the place right now, but I’m doing really well and living life to the fullest, or trying my hardest anyway XD. Sorry I took so long to reply by the way. I got the notification when I was at work, and just found it now when I was going through my emails. How about you? I’m guessing you are still doing well? I totally missed the last CWW too. I intended on doing that one. I was really excited. And then life happened and they put us on overtime again at work. Irritating, but I’m over it XD.

      • @thedarkninja03 omg hi!!
        I created a new email and am never on SE so I never saw this notif, sorry!
        Man… I kinda feel like I’m a completely different person than when we last talked… crazy.
        I’m glad you were doing great, and I hope that is still the case! That’s sad that your schooling didn’t go as planned, but I’m glad you found something else 🙂 sounds like you are very busy lol
        How are you doing now tho?

      • Is there an easier way to talk maybe? Do you have instagram or anything?

      • I am still doing great! Work is actually still on overtime, which is ridiculous, and I don’t have the energy to do anything anymore, but rumors are there is a light at the end of the overtime tunnel. I’ve still been working on my 3D printing stuff, as well as music, writing, and now I’ve added sword fighting to the mix, but that is rather new. So, still too busy 😂 but overall life is good. I’ve been doing a study with my best friend, who is going to school to be a youth pastor, and that has had a pretty massive impact on my life, which is awesome. As for easier way to talk, I do have insta. Let me figure out what my @ is 😂 I’ll get back in a few minutes once I figure out what it is

      • Ok, I believe it is @thedarkninja03 on Instagram as well 😂 I don’t post much on there, but that would be easier to talk.

      • That’s good!!
        Okay, friended you on insta. sorry again for being so late to seeing this lol
