We are moving!

The Wogsland family has already moved to a new house, but now this blog is moving too. It is being magically transformed into But magical transformations aren't instant. So this is really a warning post. Letters to the Parents isn't moving quite yet. is like half-done. I am still building more into it besides a blog, so it'll take a while for the whole site to be up and running.

I am going to leave all of these posts here, but I'm also going to move them to my new blog and start blogging regularly again. I will make another post on here when the new blog is up and running which won't be for a while since I am building the whole thing myself and learning how to do it in the process.

*cough* *cough* I mean, I am doing the magical transformation myself which usually requires more than one magical person, so it will take a while.

Yup. That's about it. School's starting back up soon, and I want to get a lot done before then.

In other news, this Sunday is Esther Day, which is a holiday to celebrate love, especially love that it is usually harder for you to express. So this Sunday, tell someone you love them who you don't usually tell that you love them. That doesn't really make sense. This page explains it better.

In honor of Esther day, the four Wogsland kids are going to a Nerdfighter gathering on Saturday. I am really excited to meet new people, especially those who identify as Nerdfighters. Nerdfighters are people who fight for nerds, and they are generally very good, well-meaning people.

I'm going to go work on that magical transformation. Good luck in all your magical endeavors.

New Year's Resolutions

So, it's the new year, and I know it's been that way for a while now, but I just figured that I should put my new year's resolutions onto paper or blog.

To write more, everyday to be exact. I am participating in a challenge called Write Chain. You make a writing goal. Mine is to write or edit for thirty minutes. It has to be a goal that you can accomplish daily because everyday that you meet your goal you get a link in your chain. The for each consecutive day of writing your chain gets longer and longer, until you miss one day and have to start over again. My current record is nine days which I broke on Saturday, when I got caught up in Signature Ball and completely forgot to write. I started again yesterday and now I have a chain that is one whole link long. The challenge is twitter based, but it is super fun and you guys should try it out.

Ummm.... I want to better myself as usual. Be healthier, be nicer, etc., but I don't really have any other concrete "official" resolutions. So that's that I guess.

What resolutions did you make? Were they the same as last year's?

Go get something productive done.

College Packing Tips

The following are a compilation of packing tips that I tweeted over the past few days. I just finished packing for college, but most of them still apply to regular packing.
Enjoy. . .

College Packing Tips

  1. Finish unpacking first.
  2. Give up. Your books will not fit into one box.
  3. Don't throw your boxes into the furthest reaches of the attic. You will regret it in three months.
  4. Blasting Enchanted helps.
  5. Save the knick knacks and shove them in the small spaces later.
  6. Always tape the bottom of you boxes before you move them. The consequences aren't pretty.
  7. Don't forget your light saber.
  8. Don't pack the Sharpie.
  9. Trash bags are your new best friend.

(1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9)

I hope these help with your packing. You may not have started yet, but you will soon.

The 12th Doctor Revealed: Do we really want to know?

This Sunday during a live broadcast the actor(ess) in the role of the twelfth doctor will be revealed. Everyone is very excited. Fans are ready and waiting to watch the live stream on their computers, but why?

I have never watched the regeneration episode without knowing, that this was it for this actor and so and so was going to take their place at the end. The episodes were still exciting and sad, but not surprising. Everytime, I knew exactly who was going to take their place and when: so and so, at the end of the episode.

Wouldn't it be amazing to not know?

You sit down on your couch, with your computer/TV in front of you to watch Doctor Who. It is nearing the end of the season, so you know it is going to be intense.

The day is saved, but the doctor is injured. He can't die. They haven't announced the next one yet, you think.

But that doesn't stop the regeneration. 

He throws his arms out and light streams from his fingertips. You can't breathe, desperately wondering how he will come back from this.

He doesn't. 

The regeneration completes and someone you have never seen before is standing in front of you. A couple of quick, witty lines are spewed and the episode ends. 

It is silent. You are still sitting on the couch. Shocked. 

How much more emotional and exciting was that? Wouldn't it just be grand if the BBC could keep even the regeneration a secret? Emotions would fly so high.

What do you think? Do you want to be completely and utterly surprised? Is the knowledge and anticipation more fun?

Will you be watching the announcement on Sunday?

I'll leave you to your thoughts.

Victory is at Hand! (A.K.A. I won Camp NaNoWriMo)

I did it. I’m done. I just finished the very first draft of my very first novel. I wrote fifty thousand words in the month of July and completed Camp NaNoWriMo.


I have close my manuscript and I am not going to open it again until I go back to school in two weeks.
It is so weird to not have something to do. I don’t have a daily word count to reach. I have no looming goal. I am done. I finished my first draft with about 50,300 words and I am going to let it sit. However, when I pick it back up I am definitely going to add more before I finally start to edit.

I still am not used to the insane lack of things to do in the evening. I can get on my tumblr and reblog whatever I want and not have to worry about not hitting my word count for the day. It is very freeing, but also scary. What will I do now?

Thankfully, I am planning a web show in the near future that still has no script. I have things to do, but I have no major deadlines to reach. I should probably set them.


P.S. I actually won last Sunday on the 28th, but stay tuned I have two NaNo-related videos coming tonight.

Camp NaNoWriMo: Why Hello Week Two. Why Don't You Punch Me in the Face?

          So, if you haven't seen my most recent videos, which are now available in the handy video bar above, then you may not know that I am doing Camp NaNoWriMo this glorious month of July. Camp NaNoWriMo is an extension of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Camp NaNoWriMo is, unlike NaNoWriMo, not in November. Instead it is in April and July. Also you can choose to work on something besides a novel or revise, or continue previous work. With this addition users can also make their own word counts besides the usual 50,000 words. The people who take these options are called NaNoRebels. I am just doing the traditional fifty thousand words this July which is a lot of words so I am very busy.
          Every day I go to work and write on the drive there and sometimes on the drive home. I usually spend about 9 to 10 hours at work, so as soon as I get home, I sit down and write. This is my schedule for the day, so as you can see I do not have much free time to do things like blog and make great videos. I am still uploading a quick vlog every Tuesday, just to stay in the habit of vlogging. If I stop again, it may take years for me to start back up, again. So the next few July videos aren't going to be that great, but I will be editing more once August starts. However, I will not be editing that much until school starts again. I will still be working for the first half of August, and still busy. The only reason, you all got the Wizard Duel is because it was already mostly edited, and I finished it up in the car on the way to work one morning.
          I am going on a road trip on the first week of August, so I do not know what my video that week will be, but on the 17th I am going back to school and the land of free time. Next semester I will be busier than I was last semester, but I will still have more time to edit than I do now.
         Next semester I will also be filming a web show, that I am producing. It is as yet, nameless and scriptless, but if everything goes according to plan episodes will start rolling out in January. I will try to release a few trailers beforehand just so you all can get excited, but until then just imagine a X-men on a much lower budget and with mostly girls. I am excited for it, and I hope that you all will like it.
         So, if you have read this far, I love you, but I have to say good bye. I am very far behind on my word count, thousands of words, so I really need to nail it down. If you want a bad explanation of my plot, click on the first video in the bar above. This is my most recent video, to watch it on YouTube click here. The video will open up in a white box, that you can close at any time, by clicking "I'm done watching this." I hope you enjoy the upgrades. Also, clicking the Camp NaNoWriMo banner on the side takes you to my novel page that has a synopsis and excerpt.

Have a wonderful week guys,

What You can Buy With $2000

Hey, I haven't blogged on in a while so I have a lot to catch you guys up on.

My job is going great. I got my first paycheck a week ago. My first whole month at PatientFocus is inclosed in the two thousand dollars. I am so happy. I can do so much! I know that I can't really do that much, but think of how much stuff I can buy.

40 pairs of nice shoes.
200 yards of fabric. (Joann's)
33 swim suits.(Land's End)
500 gallons of gas. ($4.00)
29 tanks of gas (17 gal.)
100 t-shirts (Think Geek)
1 acre of pasture (US average (
18 bitcoin (

That's a lot of stuff. (Each is how many of that object you can buy with $2,000)
I am going to have the ability to buy so much stuff at the end of the summer. I am thinking about getting a car. I have to learn how to drive first. I am quite terrified of driving and only have a few hours logged.

I have learned so much at PatientFocus. I am excited at all of the new possibilities. There are so many opportunities for developers and techie people, and look I am becoming one. Slowly but surely I am joining the tech community. It is awesome! I am going to do fun things with the Tumblr API later.

Until the next time:


P.S. These are my two most recent videos. Enjoy.
