You curl up in bed with your laptop at 6 in the evening and wake up twelve hours later.

Today's a stay-at-home-to-write-reports day. I have three reports to write: an observational one, a written analysis of an activity I animated yesterday, and a client profile to finish writing.

It is clear my two weeks of relative quiet are over. See you all in December!!

Just kidding, but yeah, I'll be really busy until December 7th. But then I have about four to five weeks off. So excited!

And now I'm off to respond to comments (but an enormous THANK YOU is in order right now) on my latest silly Kurt/Blaine story. If it qualifies as a story... XD

Seriously, thank you, friends! ♥

Hi!

So I have a midterm tomorrow for which I should be studying, and an activity I need to plan out for the girls at the group home, but all I really want to do is continue working on the first story I've gotten real inspiration for since the summer.

Preview? )

Hi y'all!

I never freaking post anymore! I'm sorry! ♥ So here's a short update on my life at the moment, fandom-wise and RL-wise.

Fandom:

I am participating in the KlaineBigBang, for which my submission has been sent out. My artist is ~incredible, and I cannot WAIT for you guys to see her beautiful work. I'm in awe, honestly. I don't yet know when posting for that will begin, but I will update my journal to let you know when that's happened (for those of you who are interested in reading it, of course). I'm super stoked, not only to share the story I've been sitting on for quite some time, but also to read all the other offerings that I know will be bloody brilliant.

Aside from that whopper, I'm working on a series of short fics about the various members of New Directions' attempts to get relationship advice from Kurt and Blaine. There are two stories so far, posted under my AO3 (ArchiveOfOurOwn) account, of the same username as this journal. They're pretty silly, but maybe you like silly?

I'm also currently mulling over another fic that will (I hope) archive Kurt and Blaine's preparations for New York, which doesn't necessarily produce the desired results. This story idea was inspired by a conversation I had with [livejournal.com profile] perumen and [livejournal.com profile] cxco after we watched Glee Live 3D (or whatever it's actually called).

Speaking of which, I enjoyed the movie. I bounced around in my seat and sang along to every song, so it was definitely entertaining. [livejournal.com profile] cxco and I applauded after every number and then for each of the cast members' names in the credits. I was sad there was no Single Ladies dance or Kurt/Blaine skit, but what're you gonna do, you know? You can't have everything.

Also, I am SUPER FUCKING EXCITED for S3. I'm going to attempt to keep myself as unspoiled as possible, but I make no promises. I'm pretty terrible at restraining myself.

Real life:

I start school tomorrow at 8:30 in the morning. Yes that's early, and yes I'm a little disappointed that my summer's over. But I'm anxious and excited about going back, especially since I have my first training internship--here we call it 'stage', NOT pronounced like the thing theatrical performances take place on. I'll be working at a group home with youth who struggle with severe anxiety and depression, which should adequately explain the excitement and anxiety I have about starting back at school!

I also have four other classes to juggle along with my stage placement, but they all sound like informative, fascinating classes (Aggression & Isolation, Neurological Deficits), so I'm looking forward to it. Not looking forward so much to the vast amount of work I will have to do over the next fifteen weeks, but hey, what're you gonna do, right? Has to be done!

I'll also be working one day a week at ths sandwich shop I applied to earlier in the summer. I really like the job, and I could use the extra cash, but I'll have to see how long I can maintain those hours with my school demands.

-

All of that? Means I probably won't be around as much within fandom as I have been in the past year. I could afford to devote a few hours a night to reading and writing fics, discussing Glee and Klaine, and just generally enjoying the hell out of myself in the k_b community last year, but I do not yet know how feasible that's going to be this year. I'll be around for the KlaineBigBang for sure, and hopefully the first month won't be too bad, but I'm letting you know now ahead of time (for those of you who want to know) so that if I disappear off the face of the internet for a few weeks (e.g. during midterms and finals, etc.), you'll know why. My heart will still be here, of course, but my brain might not be.

No matter what happens, though, I will absolutely make time to watch Glee every week, and I may find the time to post my thoughts about the episode afterward. We'll see!

Also, if you want to contact me for any reason, give me a shout via PM here or over at Tumblr, and I'll certainly get back to you ASAP!

Hmm. This ended up not so short...

:D

What's going on with all of you??
rockinhamburger: (Default)
+ Goddamnit, LJ! I'm only now noticing how many comment notifications you failed to deliver in the last few days. How many Klaine comments have I missed that I will never know about? FUCK YOU, LJ!

+ What I should be doing? Getting a head-start on the impending assignments coming up so that I can get organized for when my family moves in six weeks. I only just found out we're moving, and it'll be right as finals are starting WHICH IS ~FUCKING AMAZING~ TIMING!

What I'm actually doing? Surfing Tumblr, reading and writing fic, and drinking beer. I embody what it means to be a diligent worker!

+ Tomorrow's a friend's birthday party; we're going to the most fabulous gay club in the city, and then Sunday's the St-Patrick's Day Parade. It's gonna be a boozy weekend, that's for sure.

Homework? WHAT HOMEWORK!?

+ In excellent news, I found out where I'm being placed for internship next semester. Let's just say I've been offered one of the more esteemed placements. If all goes according to plan, I'll be working at a school, primarily with teenagers who struggle with self-defeating behaviours such as eating disorders and self-mutilation. From what I've been told, they choose the students most likely to represent my program in a professional, respectable manner, so that's extremely encouraging for me. I went for the job interview on Wednesday, and I met with one of the women who helps head the city-wide organization, and I totally bonded with her. She said, and I quote, "You have so much energy! I feel energized just talking to you!"

So, yeah, I'm pretty stoked :D



How are you, flist?

I honestly have no idea who reads my journal anymore, and because my posts are so irregular I'm not really sure there'll be any interest in the following, but I do think it sounds like fun, so!

The Commentary Meme: I will write a DVD commentary for any of the fics I've written that you want to ask about. I'll tell you what the writing process was like, about alternate possibilities for the storylines and characters, things that happen in the background -- the stuff that didn't make it into the story, and anything else you might be curious about. Hit me up!

(Also, for those who might be wondering although the squeamish should probably skip this, my dad had his left foot amputated last week. This is not as tragic as it might seem, though. Apparently my dad's been considering it for over a year and trying to get accustomed to the idea. By the time the subject came up with his doctors on Thursday, he was unwavering in his agreement to do it. The surgery went well, and his doctors say he can be slotted in for rehab and fitted for a prosthesis in the next six to eight weeks as he heals up. He's obviously in some pain, but they're trying to control it with pain and nerve meds [that ghost limb thing people talk about? Totally true; my dad feels itchy where his toes should be, which is super creepy]. Things are still a little all over over the place for the moment, but I can see the horizon in the distance.)

-

Ugh, time to brave a snowstorm in order to hand in an assignment. Really wish class had been cancelled.

But Darren Criss' appearance on Ellen has cheered me. Check it out, he sings a song he wrote for her. It is adorable, and he looks amazing, and it's just fantastic!


♥ to all of you!
