Checking In

So here are some pictures:

We played beachball.  It was kind of cold outside, because our weather is redonkulus.  Illinois is stupid weather central.  You never know what you're going to get.  At the end of July.  I know, I mainly picked it because you can see my HAIR.  Which I worked on.  I have a lot of hair, and it takes an unreasonable amount of time to curl.

I look really ticked off.  But I'm not.  I'm happy, because of our awesomely themed table.  

And look at our cool Hawaiian name tags.  Yeah, that's right.  We got Hawaiian names.  Mine is "KiKi."  Um, my real name is not that much of a secret, so I'm going to go ahead and tell you it's XiXi (Oh yeah, it's going to be so unreadable on the spine of a book one day).  You pronounce it "CeCe."  I just go with a pseudonym, seemed like a good idea at the time.

I look very young.  I know.  Darn my Asian heritage.  One day, they tell me, I will appreciate looking young.  One day.  One day, when I don't get carded for things.  Yup.  There you have it. My life is so cool and interesting that I absolutely had to blog about it.

No, not really.  I apologize for that.  But!  In the world of writing, I have finally reached the 50,000 mark.  If it were NaNoWriMo, I would be a winner.  Except--it took me a two months to get to there, and it's July.  

Details, details.

I am out of ideas.  Is there something massively important I should be blogging about right now?  Concerning writing, of course.  What would YOU like to know?  Because I'm such an expert and everything.  I'm like a Dear Abby column.  


  1. Hey, it's all good. I've always looked older than I am, which was ridiculous when I was mistaken for an 18yo when I was 12. =/ Looks are very deceiving some times.

    You're name is totally awesome by the way, mines one of the most common ever so eh. At least it'll make your books stand out!

    And congrats on the 50k mark! Woot! You're getting me motivated haha. Keep up the good work!

    Oh, and hiya by the way haha. I think this is my first comment on here... So introduction: Hi! I, too, am a college student/aspiring author. Woot for having something in common! :)

  2. I love your dress! Thanks for posting the pictures. It looked like you had a lot of fun. :D

  3. It's ok. I'm Asian too and have the exact same problem. People think my sister and I are twins; we are not. We have 4 years between us, and they think I'm HER age, which makes me one young lookin' college grad. :P Recently I got asked if I was a senior in high school. But yeah, in the long run, I'm sure it's better this way?

    Um, yay Asian fountain of youth? Glad you had fun, despite the machinations of the weather! (Sounds like what my friends in San Fran are experiencing - coldness and fog in JULY, wtf.)

  4. Too cute! And you are so lucky to look young AND be naturally skinny!

    Congrats on hitting 50,000 words in two months! That's impressive!
