March = not so happy

Y'know how I've been feeling a little strange this week? Well, out of curiosity, I had a quick look at the past few years--here on my blog--and discovered that around this time of the year, I always seem to get gloomy for no real reason. Looks to me like it's a seasonal thing or something. As in: I'm not ready to let go of summer yet. Man, I could really live in a place where it's forever summer. Seriously.

I'm also not looking forward to the time change later this month. I love the fact that night doesn't fall until 8pm. Soon, that'll start happening at around 5pm... which makes me cringe. :/

Yesterday, via Twitter, I read these guidelines. They sound interesting and actually sparked off a very unique and odd idea that takes a bunch of elements and turns it into what sounds like an adventurous story. I like adventure, so I've been writing down a bunch of notes, named the characters, and even cast them. I'm excited about it. Now, because I've been super moody lately, it might amount to nothing. But I'm going to see where it takes me. Looks like the best thing to do this month is to dabble in a bunch of different things, let the ol' muse jump here, there, and everywhere, so I can at least complete one task. lol.

I'm also reading HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE, which is actually just as interesting and charming as the movie. I usually like to read the book before watching the movie, but I didn't know this was based on a book until I actually watched the movie several years back. I'm a Hayao Miyazaki fan. I love his movies. They're always so magical, beautiful--not just the images, but in the heart--and wonderful. HMC was no exception, I loved it. And now that I'm reading the book, I know I'll want to watch the movie again. :)

Oh, and then I found out that this is actually the first book in a trilogy (thank you, Goodreads) so I popped into The Book Depository to take a look. And was pleasantly surprised to find the second book for under $5. How cool is that? I ordered it, and will probably buy the third one when I start reading that one. I've been doing that a lot lately. I used to buy books in a series whether I'd read the first book or not, but now, I wait until I've read the first one before I get the next one, and so on. I think it works better that way. 

Well. That's it for today. I hope you all have an awesome weekend!
