An Evil Nymph’s 2012 Overview! (Happy New Year 2013!)

by evilnymphstuff

Hi everyone! On this New Year’s Eve, I’ll be doing everything that needs to be done for this last day of 2012, mainly, the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures, the WordPress annual report, some ramblings on the 2012-13 transition…

First of all, for this week’s photo challenge, it was suggested that we present 12 photos at least in a gallery to make an overview of 2012, but I’m going to break the rules and thus here’s my contribution:

Is It The End Of The World Yet?

by evilnymphstuff

In a few hours, as predicted by the Mayans – or more precisely, the media – we will all be die. It is the end of our world.

Or not.

2012 end of the world

Do you believe in any of this? I don’t. In about 2 hours, here it will be the 22/12/12 and there still hasn’t been any tsunami warning or violent cyclones or incoming flood or deadly earthquakes… Or not even snow. (NB: it never snows in tropical regions, so if there will ever be snowing here in Mauritius, I believe it might be a reason to get worried.)

Late For NaNoWriMo? No Worries!

by evilnymphstuff

On the 1st November, instead of attacking the blank page and starting this ruthless challenge of writing 50,000 in a month, I finished my last two exams papers and ended up sleeping. It was only yesterday that I started to write, and my NaNo statistics are well below the expected word count… for the time being.

Are you in the same situation?

On Awards and Sites Of The Month: September 2012!

by evilnymphstuff

The longer we stay and mingle in this wide world of blogging, the more I meet people and read blogs and the more I am confused when I receive a blog award. Why? Because there are so many of you that I’d love to give awards too… too many! And I can’t feel like choosing only a bunch of you guys, so I guess I’ll change the rules a bit and I just want to say thanks:

To Better With A Pen for awarding me with the One Lovely Blog Award!

My Experience At August Camp NaNoWriMo 2012

by evilnymphstuff

The adventure is over. We, writers, are back to our normal rate of a hundreds of words per day instead of the massive 1,600+ words that we’ve had to write everyday for one whole month to finally win this year’s August Camp NaNoWriMo.

Hey, that’s mine ;)

I was lucky that the first two weeks were relatively easy because I was in holidays so I had a great start (4000 words on the very first day!). And when I compare this year’s performance to last year’s in November, I can clearly see a difference: I improved at that crazy thing! Here are my statistics:

Everyday Is A New Beginning

by evilnymphstuff

The holidays are now officially over here in Mauritius and the 3rd and last term of the school year has begun today. Let me tell you that the last week of my holidays were totally filled up: going out with friends, with family (coming from overseas), keeping up with tuition, and with Camp NaNoWriMo of course.

My worst fear then was to lose control.

My Celtic Star Necklace!! ♥♥

I’m sure most of you have felt as such at least once in your lifetime: the feeling of being too busy, having too much to do and not having enough time.

Camp NaNo June 2012? [+My Writing Status]

by evilnymphstuff

First of all, I’d like to wish HUGE LUCK to the Camp NaNoWriMo June participants!!! :D

In fact, I’m not participating.

Yes I’m not as I’m going to take part for the August one :) That’s because I’m very busy with exams and school activities in June whereas in August I’m in holidays! (well half of the month at least)

Happy Chinese New Year 2012!

by evilnymphstuff

Tomorrow is at last the most important festival of the Chinese tradition: the New Year! Even more important than the usual 1st Jan new year… My family and I have a lot to do… and enjoy!

This year will be the year of the Dragon – from the Chinese horoscope.

We’ve been busy ‘spring cleaning’ – yes because Chinese new year also symbolises the coming of spring time :) – and buy new clothes! ^^ Then when the big day comes, we’ll first go to mass (here we’re almost all half-Catholic half-Chinese) and light firecrackers just like the ones I filmed on my New Year’s vid post. Hehe I can’t believe I’m still not deaf! And after a traditional lunch… We’re heading to the hotel!! Yeah! I’m going to stay for two nights thus I’ll return home on Wednesday (missing school I know lol but well every year’s it’s been like that!). I don’t know if I’m going to blog during my stay… Just to let you know. ^^

Happy Chinese New Year! Hope it brings good fortune :) let loose the dragon inside of you!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Winter

by evilnymphstuff

In Mauritius we are currently not in winter but in summer! Yep I always celebrate Christmas in summer ^^  But winter can also be associated with our moments of sadness and depression. When we feel bad, winter has settled in our mind. It’s all gloomy and dull…
But then we only need to light a match to melt the snow, to think positively again :)

This was my little cousins playing with sorts of firecraking sticks (harmless and beautiful!) for New Year.

In this wonderful period of renaissance (New Year) we should light up our inner winters and let the sun shine through!

An Evil Nymph.
