Writing Weirdness?

So I was finally able to pinpoint my writing process, and it is a bit funny/confusing/long, but it works for me. I start out with a notebook, I always try to keep a notebook handy, because (even though I deal with those dreaded mindblanks), words pop into my head. It's weird, I tell you. After the "word vomit" (please excuse the comparison, but it's accurate) I erase and write it all down again, but in nicer handwriting, and sift though it as best I can. Then I pass it onto my computer, where I do one final edit.
I can't be the only person that does this... Lol.

Musical Memory vs Cognitive

Is there anything more annoying than listening to a song, and having it bring up memories that you didn't think you'd ever think of again, didn't necesarily want to think of again? And why isn't that the case with your regular day to day memory? Where is the fairness in that?

Discuss and please help me figure this one out.

Hurricane Season

As most of you have heard, Puerto Rico has been hit by two storms, and suffered greatly. (The last of which was the worst. Resulting in a month without light or water for some). This has left a lot of people homeless, and forced them to leave the island in hopes of rebuilding their lives. I only lost material things (my grandmother's porch came out of its socket, and my computer is on the fritz. I've been writing my story in a notebook.) Can I win a Twitter contest for one pls??? Just kidding. (please)  I've seen a lot of people downplay the situation, and that's okay if you're trying to move on from it, but I've also seen people attack those that have suffered, and that is just not right. How many disasters do we have to face before we empathize with others? Can't we support one another without having gone through similar situations? Can't we forget ourselves just a little, and think about those in need? 

I'm sincerely thankful to all of those who have come to our aid. You have no idea what it means.

These Days...

Updates after Irma: She left a lot of deforestation, but we began to rebuild shortly after she left. 

These days have been BUSY for me. Taking care of my grandmother has left little time to write (I've managed to write 1 to 3 sentences in one sitting), and the heat is NOT helping me at all. I'm getting light loopy (lightheaded) and just dropping to sleep randomly. It is not a good time for me. But I will keep writting. I do not intend to give up. 

It would just be nice to get a break from the temperature, as headaches and dizziness have run rampant in my head.

I'm almost done reading A Court of Mist and Fury, and I love Rhysand so much!! I can't handle it... Feyre is kicking butt, which is awesome.

Irma in PR

So after a few years of no storms or hurricanes, Puerto Rico is being "slightly" affected by Irma. I'm feeling a little anxious, but I know we'll be okay.  I urge other places in her path not to put off preparations. Do it as swiftly as possible, because you don't know what might happen. God bless + take care.
 Be safe.

The Sun + Summertime Hate Me (rant-ish)

So it is that time of the year again, school is out, (now technically back on, sorry kids), and the sun is running amok... With my head. The heat and sunlight get stronger and so do my headaches. While they're by no means migraines, they are especially persistant now, and will not budge. During this time of year I wish I had a tap of cold running water over my head 24/7, or a walk in cooler that I could live in for a bit. 

This makes me fussy (which I don't like)
It drains me of my energy, which means I'm almost always in bed (most likely knocked out because of it)

Needless to say I miss wintertime.

Appointment With My Neurosurgeon

I finally got to go to my neurosurgeon (whom I also consider my neurologist). I've been going to him since I was thirteen, and he knows every symptom, ache and setback I've had due to my Hydrocephalus. He prescribed a routine CT Scan, (I prefer those to MRI's because the noise scares me. lol) and a follow up appointment in September.
