Our Story

Started Writing Our Story


I’ve been writing again. I’ve actually got quite a bit done. I just need to finish it. The process is slow. It takes me a good 4 hours to make 3000 words, but it’s worth it. I’m having fun with this story. I told myself I’m not going to post it until it’s finished. I can’t tell you how tempted I am right now to just toss it out there though, but I know that doing that would make writing this story more into a chore.

 

I don’t want that.

 

Anyway, here are the Stats for this new story. I’ll share that at least.
 


Title: Our Story

Author: A. Guerin

Beta: Haley

 

Fandom: Star Trek XI (reboot)

Pairing: Bones/Jim

Rate: Mature, ranges from PG13 to R

Gender: AU Romance, Domestic Fic, Slow Get-together Fic

Disclaimer: Star Trek belongs to Gene Rodenberry, Paramount, and JJ Abrams. I’m just borrowing the characters to play.

McCoy’s a romance novelist suffering writer’s block. Jim’s just trying to find a place in the world. Add an old yellow dog, a rusty truck, a few disasters, and one rundown house in need of major repairs… And you have yourself one remarkable story.

Shopping, Exersice, and Ranting


I bought several things on my last paycheck, last Friday. I bought this cute bra that I didn’t think I’d win, 2 Star Trek Shits, Pon Farr Perfume, and those Marry Janes. The bra and Janes got to my house before the end of last week, but the Janes died after the first hour. So now I’m waiting for the replacement pair before I have to return them. The bra fits like a half cup, so I’m not going to be wearing them anytime soon.

 

They’re still cute to look at though. I also found a really good deal on some nice colorful ones. I’m not much on the whole “Lovely bras,” but I kind of like them.

 

I exercised more this week. I hope I’m able to keep it up when school starts. I did Cardio and Weight Training for an hour Tuesday, and I did an hour of Cardio today. I’m not used to an hour of cardio a day, and I was going at it pretty fast (140 s/m). I want to try another hour tomorrow before work and some more Cardio with WT this Friday.

 

I weighed myself at 145lb last time I looked, and I still want to be 120-130. If not that, then I want to look slimmer with some nice muscle tone.

 

The only down side to exercising is I keep finding my one and only guy friend there. It’s really creepy, ‘cause he has this whole crush on me. It’s fucking ridiculous! I know the whole thing is purely coincidence, but it still doesn’t stop it from being creepy as fuck.

 

GODDAMNIT! It pisses me off, this whole crushing over me. I don’t want it, and I thought I’d just let it be, ya’know? It’s not like he can help how he’s feeling.

 

I had hoped he’d get over it, but that didn’t seem to help any. After I tried to make it strait that I never will feel the same way about him, he sends me a fucking three page essay about his feelings over me. I nearly punched his face in, but Haley stopped me. I also didn’t want any drama, so I just forgot about it and pretended it never happened. Okay, it still pisses me off and I really should have just decked him.

 

I thought maybe it was time to start putting distance between us. I mean, I don’t want to lead him on or anything. Plus, I was noticing things that were starting to tick me off, such as him telling me “you’re worth the wait” which is sickening and creeeeeeeeepy as fuck. Then there’s this whole, pushing my other guy friends back when we’re playing. As if he’s trying to stake some goddamn claim on me. As if he has any fucking right.

 

Then there was the whole “tried to kiss you” part that happened only twice, but damn if I didn’t want to fucking throw up or something. I mean, EW! It’d be like kissing my brother. As if I didn't notice he triedthough! I mean, I ignored that it even happened, but ew ew ew... I should have stopped hanging out with him once he tried putting his arm around me, but he is a good friend. And I just tried to deal with his stupid little crush.

 

 

The last thing I fucking hate though, would be he reads my fucking LJ. It’s fucking creepy, and he better fucking stop. Not even my best friend reads my LJ. At least not often.

Exersice and Writing


I’ve got two days of exercise this week. Tuesday I did some Cardio, and Thursday I was able to do Cardio and Weight Training. I also started writing Thursday on a Star Trek fanfic. I’m calling it “Our Story” for now.

 

I didn’t sleep much that night. I was seriously writing for 9 hours, maybe more. I got 7000 word out and 2.5 chapters, since I only got a few pages of chapter 3.  I didn’t go to sleep until fucking 8 Friday morning, and was able to sneak 6 hours in before I had to start the day. My arms were killing me! I literally couldn’t type a blood IM without some pain. But it was all worth it.

 

I didn’t do much that day, seeing as my arms were hurting. So I rented “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and lazed around the house.

 

I wanted to write all day, and come that night when I was just itching to type out something, pain or no pain. I popped a few Tylenol PMs and was out like a rock for 13 hours.

 

I wanted to exercises again this morning, but even as I got to the gym an hour before closing, they were all locked up.  So I came home and now I’m having troubles writing. Not that I’m in pain anymore. Just can’t think right.

 

I need to keep telling myself, “Your writing cause it’s fun, not because it’s a chore.”

Good Morning Pain ~<3


I woke up this morning in pain. JOY~! <3

 

That really sucks.  I was going to go do an hour of Cardio anyway, but I felt really tired this morning, again.  I woke up at around 1:30, ate breakfast, and tried to go back to bed. It didn’t work, no matter how tired I felt. Not only that, but I was in a bit of pain because of yesterday’s work-out. It was hell changing clothes.

 

I got Starbucks on the way to work today.  The largest one they had too – venti – with 4 shots of espresso.  Even after that drink I’m still tired.  Great!

 

I think I might be coming down with something.

Work-Out Day


I went to the gym today. I also slept until 2pm, but I wasn’t feeling all that great. Haley, Corrie and I were up late last night (until 4am) talking about Vulcan mating rituals and generally acting like dorks. We also had some fun reminiscing about Buffy the Musical, before the bug man drove by. Afterwards, we were just trying not to die from the bug poisoning.

 

Going to the gym was just what I needed. I did some 30 minute Cardio, sweat bullets, and then did some 30 minute Weight Training.  Afterwards, I felt like running.  I didn’t, but now that I think about it, I probably should have. It’s not like I last long running anyway.  I would have ran 5 minutes before going, “Screw this!” and walked back home.

 

I did some yoga too. Earlier this morning, I got a call from my Library to say my Yoga DVD reserve came in.  While I was up there, I picked it up and brought it home.  It didn’t take me long to realize that Yoga is basically really slow stretches.  Hahaha…  But they felt great!  My muscles were all tight, and I was able to move better afterwards.

 

I had my migraines and general sleepiness going on again today.  I’m getting tired of it!  The exercise was able to lessen the sleepiness, and the Yoga got rid of some of the migraine, but I still had to drink some coffee and take an Excedrin pill. I’m now feeling better, tired again, but it’s about 12 now.

 

I have work at 4:30 tomorrow.  I’ll try and get another hour of exercise before I go.  I also want to spend some time with Haley before work too. So that means stopping by the Café for an hour…

 

Let’s see. I’ll go to the gym around 2:30, do a full hour of Cardio, go to the Café around 3:30, spend a nice hour chatting with my BFF, and then stop for work from 4:30 to 9:30. Sounds like I’m going to have a nice and busy day ahead of me.

 

Time to call it a night then.

Wooting for Weight Loss


Last week I weighed myself at 147 lb, and today found myself at 143 lb.  Woot!  My goal is a good 120 lb. For being 5'1", that will make me about average weight.  Take into account my 36DDs and I'll say that 120 lb is pretty nice.  I can hopefully take that 36DD down a notch to a 34D.  That's my dream at least.  *wistful sigh*

I started taking down what I eat.  When I weighed 170lb, all I did was stop eating snacks and colas.  So this time I'm drinking less Fruit Juices -- all that fructose corn syrup -- and drinking more water.  No need for liquid calories.  

I'm also taking down what I eat.  It's not that I stopped eating.  I just eat less.  After all, apparently the amount of meat you eat should weigh no more than a stack of playing cards a day.  I usually eat 3 times that.

I'm also trying to get more grains and vegetables into my diet, but it's hard for me to sneak that into our shopping cart each week.  I have been able to get some salad.  I'm hoping for some reduced fat Horizon milk in the future, but my family hates stuff like that. *sighs*

I'm trying to pull myself out of bed in the mornings, to go to the College Gym, but I'm hell in the mornings as is.  Also, my college is 30 minutes away, and I'm reluctant to pay for the extra gas each week.  I figure though, that I should spend a good 2 hours a day working out.  It's not like I'll get much of a work-out the rest of the day.  My free time is spent reading books and playing on the net.  Work is sitting at the computer, answering the phone, and pointing out where the damn bathroom is.  The most work-out I get each day, is a 15 minute walk with my dog, and that's hell with the Texas heat being in the 110's.

Maybe I'll convince Haley to let me walk with her each night... but then there is the humidity...
