There is a shocking lack of coherence in this post.
Despite being unfocused and fidgety for the last three weeks, I managed to get my newgameplus
done! \o/ And really only then because of a very kind extra day's grace that eliminated a good chunk of my ZOMGDEADLINE dread. I'm so very excited about this challenge now, because I sorta completely forgot that I get a treat too. I do this with exchanges every single time. You'd really think I'd learn.
I'm enjoying my classes! Apparently I am not so bad at this copywriting thing, which I really un-humbly expected but it's still rather nice to have confirmed. Yet again I have confirmed that going to university straight out of high school was possibly the dumbest thing I ever did. I enjoyed it, sure, and daily paw my very nice books and even use them for research quite often, and I appreciate the skills in regards to thought processes and arguments (which I really don't use in day to day interactions, oops) and time management, but Christ, those were expensive lessons. Life Plan version 4.5 is a go.
I seem to work on original stuff in fits and starts. Once I get started, that's all I do until I've written the entire first draft, or edited the second version or what have you, and then I stop cold turkey. I've reached the limit of what I can do with them on my own for now, and waiting for my very fancy Editor person to have time to poke at them is a nice break. Related to this: haraamis
, I know I sorta kinda maybe said I'd be sending you the second complete version of Pocket, but chapter 12 is pissing me off. So. Would you like to be subjected to the incomplete version and therefore be terribly helpful? I'm possibly poking you with a stick while asking this question. :D
Etsy is still the devil. THE DEVIL.
I have new glasses! \o/ They are terribly cute. And lo, the slight blurriness of my vision is again resolved! I should really not go another five years before getting my eyes tested again.
Also, must remember to buy contacts this year. Ho ho.
REPO MEN. I'M SO GOING TO SEE IT TOMORROW. I should probably feel slightly ashamed of myself as the entire reason I'm going to see this movie is that it has Jude Law interacting with Liev Schreiber... and I want to write porn for that like omgwhoayespls. I've also completely avoided the trailer for it, as I was warned it's stupidly spoilery, so all I know about the movie is the tag line. In my shameless shallowness, that is so enough for me.
Now that I've wasted twenty minutes blabbing, maybe I'll go for another walk. So. RESTLESS. D:
