I learned my main story is at 77,776 words. Now technically, probably at least a thousand words of that is story notes I've tacked on, though I'm still not quite done with it.

Dunno if the plot qualifies as 'complex' enough to technically be considered a novel.

EDIT:/

According to our favorite online encyclopedia, anything over 40k can qualify as a novel. 17-40 can fall under as a novel, 7,500-17k is a novelette - didn't even know that was a thing, and anything under 7,500 is typically considered just a short story. (You don't say!)

I feel rather proud then that most of the stories I'm working on can at least fall under the novella category.

I learned that the card game a group of us played an early version of in line at the midnight showing of the second Hobbit movie is an actual released game now! That's so cool :)

^Congrats!

I learned I've got Clancy for groundschool. Should be fun. So I'll tell myself as much until proven wrong.

I've also learned progressively since starting this whole groundschool business that everyone is really supportive, even before then, who knows, maybe I could make a career from it.

I learned that I'm already being discussed about among BAA (Broadway Artist Alliance) even though I'm not even registered with the program yet. Gotta love my vocal coach. Oh, and my rabbit is slowly dying every day.

^Best of wishes!

I learned I don't have to cut my hair. Hah! I'm actually surprised corporate apparently didn't go their way on the matter...but then it's all for the best as I had a bunch of schemes concocted for as to why I couldn't cut my hair, ranging from locks of love, religion, gender identity, general equality, etc.

I also learned I passed my test. Phew. Second time's the charm apparently.

*cough* technically it was the third but the second one was so full of bilge water even an Eskimo in Africa wouldn't drink it. *cough*

I learned my new phone doesn't want to play my music or display my pictures...pictures I've transferred for YEARS mind you. And my PS4 doesn't want to play Overwatch, or it plays it, but the net lag makes it unplayable.

Fill-In: Eh, you're probably just a sucky player.

Oi! I had two semi-consecutive matches as Widow where I made nearly twenty kills.

Still disturbed and saddened by the phone issue. Okay. Okay. A winner would shrug it off as not being the end of the world, you still have the receipt, so if you haven't figured it out by Friday or Saturday, take it back and try a different one or keep squeeking it with the pottery phone. Dunno what to tell you about Overwatch mate, other than it's probably Joey sabotaging it in attempt to force you to write more.

Moving house is hard as f**, especially with narrow stairs and you have a big desk ;n;

But we're in, we're settling, and we have a pool! Woohoo!

I have a tan! After getting quite burnt!

Now to wait for internet and to unbox everything. *Sigh*

I learned my book came in! Now to see how shady a character Professor Harrison is...

Phew.

I'm exhausted. Been up since 4am and going nearly nonstop til now (8:45pm).

Good lord painting is messy.

Okay. Time to update, then fetch my stuff from the car. *crosses fingers* Hopefully tomorrow.

I've learned that my chronic bronchitis is taking a toll on me. I even had to reschedule my auditions because of it.

Oh, and I learned I'm immune to antibiotics now.

^Now you just need to train your body to become immune to bronchitis.

I learned the stars came out pretty good! Gemini might need a little work, but I'll give it a rest for now. Time to turn my attentions onto my next project, namely rebuilding the Tower at long last. Roxy'll be pleased.
