For all those who don’t know what the V.F.D. is, its the Volunteer Fire Department. It would be a great thing to put on future resumes and applications. Plus it’s community service, so I could get all my hours done for school. I’m old enough to join. I was at the county fair today and I saw a couple cars with V.F.D. liscence plates on them. Just seeing them redoubled my enthusiasm towards joining. The only thing stopping me is myself. I feel like I need another year before I’ll be ready. When I’m sixteen, which is on July 10, I’ll join.

I am most posotively trying. This is by far the hardest of my goals. I have been heaped with homework, pounded with papers, assasinated with essays . . . uh . . . bombarded with bookwork . . . and the such. It’s a difficult task it is. I have taken a break from my constant slaving to update my progress on the goals I’ve been keeping up with. So far I think I’m retaining A’s and B’s. Maybe one C, but I’ll get that little bugger.
A writing journal is a good idea for a jumbled mind. Everytime I have some spare time I sit down and read my last entry, just to see where I left off. Then I write about my characters, plots, story ideas, villians, and sometimes an inspirational quote. Sometimes I write down certain scenes that are unrelated to any story I’ve so far written or a scene of a story that hasn’t progressed that far yet. I can turn back to those and use them or elaborate on them when the need calls for it. If you don’t like to write free hand use a computer instead. Personally, I like the change of pace. Writing free hand is more difficult because your hand gets tired, so you won’t be writing for a long time and it won’t be as wordy because its just you writing to you (and there’s no automatic thesarus!)
