Ambivalent: Daily Update 14/30

33,053 words.  Love it.  That means that I met my personal goal of doubling today’s goal: this calls for a celebration!  (=Ben and Jerry’s chocolate fudge brownie ice cream.) We’re half-way through the week everybody!  Hope it’s going well for you all. Criticism and feedback are welcome and appreciated as always! Aun Aqui   “Waaaaake up!”  […]

Ambivalent: Daily Update 13/30

Today’s update pushes me past the 30,000 word mark!  The beginning of the end is nearly within sight.  It’s very encouraging.  This has been a daunting task and most nights, I fall asleep feeling anxious about the next day’s writing, but overall, it has been an extremely positive experience.  Thinking about the past and analyzing […]

Ambivalent: Daily Update 12/30

Everything kind of blurs together at this point, like a mosaic of raindrops that are falling onto the windshield of a car and merging themselves into clusters of odd, haphazard shapes while you’re trying to navigate through a city of flashing, neon lights.  It’s disorienting; you forget what you are for a moment and what everything around […]

Ambivalent: Daily Update 11/30

Okay, I’ve about ended the ‘filler’ portion I warned everyone about last week.  We’re nearly caught up to where I had left off in update (2?) and will soon continue proceeding forward with time.  Tonight’s update will be somewhat brief; I’ll quote a previously uploaded paragraph or so (for context) and then go on from […]

Ambivalent: Daily Update 10/30

Although it seems like it has been more like nightly updates.   Just finished watching the Bama game with Chris.  Boo!  Not a big fan (and this is the.. second game? I’ve watched all year), but it was still a sad loss.  Their fans care so much.   This night’s update about wraps up our […]

Ambivalent: Daily Update 8/30

Entry 8/30.  Over 1/4th of the way there! I was a little under the weather today, but I did my best to be clear and chronological and to make this entry at least a little interesting.  Feedback and CRITICISM are, once again, very appreciated! I just can’t stress that enough. Aun Aqui   We continued living in South […]

Ambivalent: Daily Update 7/30

The summer is about over and we’ve left Grammy’s house for a good while to come.  Our little family is together again in South Carolina.  What is life like there?  Feedback and criticism are welcome! Aun Aqui   Way back when we were living in North Augusta, South Carolina (it always sounded like an oxymoron, or contradiction, to me), […]

Ambivalent: Daily Update 6/30

Furniture: you remember it because of the way it looked, felt, and mostly (for me anyways), smelled.  In particular, I remember the red chair in the den of Grammy and Grampy’s cottage home.  It wasn’t a bland, uncomfortable chair — it was big, padded, roomy.. but it wasn’t quite a recliner, and it definitely wasn’t a swivel […]

Ambivalent: Daily Update 5/30

It’s late, it’s cold outside, and I’m parked in front of the apartment complex leasing office, wearing my flannel, red dog pajamas and stealing wi-fi so that I can upload this fifth entry.  We’re back at Grammy’s house: me and my brother. Again, criticism and feedback are very welcome! Aun Aqui   I was born. […]
