So I'm planning on doing Camp NaNoWriMo this coming July. Again. I think focusing on a project like this will be good for me. Once again, I have no idea what I'm going to write so instead of planning like I usually do, I'm going to wing it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Due to everything going on, I ended up missing the priority deadline for financial aid. Hopefully the priority deadline just means I won't be a priority but I'll still get financial aid.

A friend wants me to take a play writing class next semester! I'm going to have to drop a class to take it but that's okay. I'll probably drop photography, since eeeh. I'm not to terribly enthused about that one anymore.

Going back to work tomorrow. We'll see how it goes!

Also, meet Hecky. He's my new love. Selphie's afraid of him, hahaha, my sweet baby pumpkin head. ;3;

Hello DW friends, how are you? I've been very sad lately and I don't understand why.

Classes have started and I'm pretty overwhelmed. talking about classes )

I went to the dentist on Thursday and it wasn't quite as bad as I'd expected it to be. I ended up missing class and work on Thursday-Friday, but I was assured that that was the norm for oral surgery so I did my best to not feel guilty about it, hahaha. I now have another appointment September 24th, so that's happening. That's just going to be fillings though so, you know, not so bad.

mental health stuff )

Anyway, this is a sad post. I'm working on art and writing Stucky for [Bad username or unknown identity: fan_flashworks"]. I've finally decided to buckle down and get some of those achievement badges.

Despite being super hot and sunshiney, today feels like autumn. It's making me feel nostalgic (like everything else, haha).

My first two days of class were okay. I've a feeling I'm going to adore geology and the professor who teaches it; she's enthusiastic and wonderfully nerdy. History is going to be a struggle. Not the subject, because I love ancient world history, but the professor is going to be a problem. Fortunately I'm the type of student who can completely ignore the professor if I need to. Metal etching is intimidating and painting 3 is going to be fiiiiine. First day of art crit is Monday and first day of geo lab is Tuesday. We'll see how it goes. It was really nice to see my school friends again and experiencing people enthused about seeing me was a nice thing. XD

Last night, Kiddo and I lay in bed and watched Spirited Away. My tv is quite small (a 20 inch) so I pulled the stand until it was touching the foot of the bed at one corner, which made the space feel smaller. That, plus the window unit running, a small lamp on, and the dogs asleep in their crates made the whole thing very cozy. ;3;

Work continues to be very stressful, mainly because the woman hired to be the new office manager apparently doesn't know what the hell she's doing, even after a month of training. She had a panic attack last Thursday when I can in and I try to be sympathetic but it's difficult when she's already cried on my shoulder three times. This may not be the place for her. My boss has also decided to throw more responsibilities my way, which was pretty stupid since she knows classes have started and I'm going to be working much less. It's so annoying.

I'm hoping that come Monday, everything settles down. I'll be off work which will be nice, so hopefully when I get home from school I'll be able to sit down and finish the things I meant to get done before classes started, lmao whoops.

I'm at work and I'm terribly bored and boss is out of state at a thing so I feel like it might be time for a real update, rather than just complaining about medical stuff, so here goes! XD

Monday and Tuesday are my last days off before classes start on Thursday. I have to make them count. I have one commission to finish up (I'm so sorry it's taking so long, [personal profile] shipwreck_light!), several Stucky pictures I would like to finish, I probably should buy some school Kiddo is coming to spend Wen-Sun with us, which means I should work Monday and Tuesday and take Thursday and Friday off, but my boss scheduled a meeting on Thursday that I probably shouldn't miss. |D;;;

I'm pretty disappointed in my productivity levels over this summer. I know that people tend to get more inspired or have more ideas the less time they have, so maybe I'll actually get more work done after school starts. If that's the case, I'll just have to buckle down and make sure I actually do the things that I'm inspired to do (and also stop waiting for inspiration because that's a stupid, inconstant way of getting creative project done, Nan, stop that).

My fic idea for [community profile] iddyiddybangbang is slowly becoming less id!ficcy and more like just a regular fic (granted, a fic that's still pretty porny). Whoops? XD

So my final project for 3-D was to create a tape sculpture of myself and install it somewhere on campus. It has to interact with it's environment in some kind of way and props can be used.

This is what I came up with )

I'm going to see Age of Ultron Friday and I am so hyped. I've run into some spoilers - mostly some asshole anon over at [community profile] fandomsecrets - but idc, I'm so excited. :D

I'm debating whether or not I want to create a journal or wordpress account for professional (read: original) work. The comic I'm writing should probably have it's own site. HMMMM. :\a
nanslice: ([free!] Oooooooh!)
And it's for school! We have this thing called experimental learning endeavors and they're suppose to be things that help us learn...stuff, I don't even understand it really, but there's things like volunteering or tutoring, stuff like that. We have to do three of these things (and they need to add up to 30 hours of work) before we graduate.

Well, I couldn't think of anything so I basically proposed creating a graphic novel. Storyline, character design, storyboarding, everything. I was very vague about the plot, basically saying I wanted to write a coming-of-age story since that's a universal concept that everyone can relate to. So I fill out the form, my advisor looked it over, and we emailed it to the people in charge. And they accepted this proposal. They've turned down so many proposals and they accept this one.


So that's what I'm going to be doing over the summer. And I'm actually going to have physical copies printed and maybe sold? I don't even know. But it's exciting. I'm excited. Nervous, but excited. ;;;;
nanslice: ([tw] you got me)
[community profile] space_swap seems like it might be relevant to some of y'alls interests! It's a multifandom exchange, but the fandoms all have to take place in SPAAAAACE. I would participate but the only space fandom I have is Gundam Wing. ALTHOUGH apparently Sailor Moon qualifies as well, so maybe I'll have to peruse everything I'm familiar with and see what else might apply. :\a WHOA and actually I reckon TMNT qualifies, with the Krang and everything. Huh.

So this Monday starts the last week of class; after that, it's all finals. I'm only nervous about one class but I'm really just eager for this semester to be over with. Which I think I've mentioned before. Multiple times. Sorry. ;3;

omg the art presentation that's been looming over my head is over! It's done. I am so relieved. This thing has been on my mind ever since the beginning of the semester. I'm so glad it's over. ;3;

I'm really looking forward to when I have time to consume new media again. Right now I'm basically watching comfort movies/shows because hahaha I need comfort and it's really left me stagnant, I guess? Which is not good for the ol' creative juices. I'm cautiously/hilariously looking forward to that Magical boy anime that's coming in 2015 though, even though Free! has spoiled me and I really wish those magical boys had muscles. Oh well. The pink kid looks cute as hell though. Headbands. ;3;

This season of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been one filler episode after another. I mean, they're entertaining but man, I want to get back to the plot. ANY plot. Just something.
