Today I'm grateful for . . . variety. A variety in writing, books, movies, food, chocolate, friends, you name it! While I have favorites of all of these things (fantasy stories, Harry Potter, book adaptations, sushi, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, my BFF Kirsten) I don't think I ever fall into a rut. It'd be a very boring world if all we could eat or read or experience were our favorite things.
Today I'm grateful for . . . goofiness. My friends and I are always laughing. Of course we have "serious" times, or times where we have in-depth conversations, but we're always joking around and teasing each other (especially when Avery's around).
Today I'm grateful for . . . movies. Kirsten and I just had a movie marathon. We watched "The Hunger Games" (something we both decided we needed to watch again before the "Catching Fire" premiere next week), "The Host," and "Mean Girls." We also watched tons of "Friends" episodes. Movies that will have to wait until next week are "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," "Julie & Julia," and "Ocean's Eleven."
Today I'm grateful for . . . YouTube. I love to look up new trailers for movies that are coming out, or interviews with Jennifer Lawrence, or Taylor Swift music videos. Sometimes I reward myself with YouTube time if I've met my word count goal for the day. ;)
Today I'm grateful for . . . write-ins. I get most of my writing done at write-ins during NaNoWriMo. I wrote 3,700 words yesterday at the most recent write-in and now I'm back on track!

30 Days of Gratitude--Days 11-15
I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
