It’s Halloween. I didn’t dress up. Work was unpleasant enough in the morning due to a coworker’s complaining that I got a headache. After work, I sat in a ton of traffic and picked up Mary. We went to Shojin for a vegan sushi tasting. It was supposed to cost $40 for the two of us, but I knew once they got us I there, we would order more. It was beyond delicious and worth the $130 that I ended up spending. Salina and I agreed to change the book size for The Scribbled Victims to 8 by 5 inches.

This was at the beginning of the meal. I'm sure I looked even fatter by the end of it. Mary looks pretty though.

I had a really nice day today. I went to boot camp at 6 a.m. and burned over 1,100 calories. I went to Jamba Juice and read outside in a covered spot for a few hours and it began to rain. I talked to A______. I like that she is sometimes girly. She goes to nail salons and likes diamonds. But most importantly she was excited about taking a vacation just to lie around and read books. I’ve wanted to do that for so long. Others I’ve asked think it sounds too boring or is a waste of a vacation.

I went to boot camp at 6 a.m. and burned over 1,200 calories. My boot camp crush was on the roster but never showed up. I went to the office and revised and finished Chapter Three of Blood Sky. I’ll post it on Monday. I made penne pasta with crimini mushrooms and vegan sausage. I watched two episodes of Married at First Sight. I looked at the Tiffany website at diamond engagement rings. My tastes are too expensive. I read. Salina may kill me because I asked her if it was too late to change the size of the book.

My book pre-sale reached the funding goal today. I’m hoping to still collect more because of the way Indiegogo includes funds collected for shipping costs as part of your goal and I’d like more funds to add more promotion to the book launch. We made some decisions regarding the headers and footers for the book’s interior, as well as the chapter headings. In its current format the story ends up at 257 pages. I was hoping I’d hit 300. I’m really nervous about this book coming out and having so many people read it. I hope it is received well.

I saw my psychologist today. We talked about sex and my abstinence from masturbating for most of the time. She believes what I’m doing is a good idea. We also talked about me seeing a dominatrix. I was surprised she brought it up and she seemed supportive of the relationship as long as I’m happy. We talked about the  terrible argument I had with my friend. We talked about my S.A.D. She wants me to call my psychiatrist to tell him that my meds haven’t been working for the past two days. I’m dying to leave the country next year.
