It’s official, I’m moving to Colorado! The past year has been really confusing and stressful, and it’s taken a long time to come to this point, but my family finally got a house that we like and will be moving in about two weeks.:D

If I’m not on here very much, it’ll be because I’m busy packing and stuff.;)

Nice. As a fellow Coloradan, I'd like to welcome you to this great state. Which part of Colorado?

So, I do this thing for some of the roleplays I'm in where I copy-paste the writing - though not the chat - then edit all the grammar and continuity in a Google Doc. I'm currently doing this with an RP called Volume One: The Beginning, which has over 270 pages of content already, most of which is unedited. Maybe a fourth of that is edited material.

I had a control-A accident and almost permanently lost every word. Weeks and weeks of work, down the drain, forced to redo it all. You wouldn't be able to believe the stress. I about died. Even when I clicked the back arrow, Google gave me a pop-up saying it was having a hard time saving so much so fast and it was temporarily suspending editing abilities. It was like that for like half an hour. It just finished saving, and everything is safe. I feel giddy.

Don't take anything for granted, kids. Holy crepes.

Google docs saves revision history, so it wouldn't have gone away anyway :) Glad everything is okay though!

File -> Version History. You can see everyone who has done anything in the file too. It's amazing.

I took my dog out last night before heading to bed.  As I rounded the corner of my house, I was hit by one of the most beautiful night skies I'd ever seen.  

Over the mountain was a bright full moon,  massive reflective halo spreading out, which surprised me since the night was so clear.  There was also an unusual warm color to the moonlight,  instead of its cool white/blue.  A couple of very determined stars (probably planets) shone nearby despite the brightness of the moon.  And the fireflies, which I'm used to seeing low in grassy areas at dusk, were blinking away from the silhouettes of the treetops. Words can't do it justice.  My jaw dropped.

I was just browsing YouTube when I came across this. The nostalgia is so real right now I can't even.

Props on that second one. It’s really stressful—maybe that’s just me in particular—but it’s totally worth it.

This ^. But I've learned that TUBA has some great relationship advice. Also, asking the person you like for relationship advice can sometimes work.

I mean, it's either I handle my grammar and don't get excited or I get excited and let loose. I can't do both, geez.:P
