What I Want For The Future

I've always had plans for the future actually. Yes, as spontaneous as I can be, I've always had plans for what life I want to have 5 to 10 years from now.

In the future, I'd have a two daughters. If I'm not married by then, I'd just adopt them both and have my friends help me raise them. The single friends would probably be more willing. Those friends who are married are totally gonna be busy with their own kids.

I haven't thought of their full names yet but I do have drafts for them - Elena and Justine. Alright, these names could change in the future because the wife will probably want other names (or male kids) but those two names would be there in case I adopt my daughters. And eventually, I'll tell them the story of how I met their mother and that story would last for a long time. HAHA!

Then I'll try to raise them with the right amount of being a father and a friend to them. Cheesy but I'd wanna try that. I never had that so at least they'll be lucky. I even have a few plans for what to say in their eventual debuts. "I love you and I hope that I've given you, through all these years, what I never had as a child - a father who was always there".

Married or not, I'm gonna get a daughter. Call me crazy.

And eventually they'll get married and... have their last names changed... Oh, I did not think about that. Oh god. Alright, maybe I'll get three daughters, one of them just to take care of me when I'm old. Haha!

Story Draft for Fiction

I’m currently in a rut when I’m writing my final short story for fiction class.

The current storyline I have for the paper is “hopeless romantic talks with his friend about his past mistakes with a girl” and that’s when it all goes. Now really, I have lots of experience with that same scenario so I might be able to describe it with a little more detail than others. Plus, for the protagonist's love interest or at least

I took the narration style of the novel “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya” except I didn't actually use the same tone of voice. The main character, whose name I haven’t thought of so far, is basically a regular student and his friend is teaching him the basics of infatuation and love and all that in a sarcastic tone similar to that of Chandler Bing from Friends. Yes, my characters borrow traits from sitcoms that I love.

So far, I have 3 pages done and this is just a first draft. Here’s a sample.

And when Ryan finally ticked Jill off, she blocked him from all social media websites they were both in. Plus, she told him something that I could never forget. Now, I’m gonna replace a word that she used a lot with the word “kitten”.
            “You are a kitten idiot. You kitten annoy me with all your talking. I hope you kitten die like the kitten bitch that you are.”
            True story.
Okay, it may not be good but hey, I’m working on it (Plus, that’s basically what happened to me recently. Haha! True story).
