I am actually in a really good place right now, emotionally speaking. My job is very busy, but I feel more confident in my position and the courses I'm teaching than I did last year. I'm also helping out with some clubs that I'm actually interested in, which makes it more fun than work. I'm hoping to do more writing as a result of this emotional upswing, but it will depend on how organized I am.
Top things on the list:
- I owe kazluvsbooks an SPN fic that se has been SUPER patient about
- Guess who just realized that she never actually finished the last part of her spn_j2_xmas fic from last year? orz Let's see if I can get it done before this year's challenge.
- Just signed up for spn_reversebang and managed to snag an awesome prompt from an even more awesome artist! There's another prompt still up in the claims that is SO not in my usual wheelhouse, but is really tempting, IF I can find the time to work on it. I'll have to deliberate further.
- I'm planning on signing up for Yuletide this year for the first time in four years! I blame Marty McFly (no, really).
- Quite uncharacteristically, I know what I what to write for bigbang next year. So I'm plotting that out in my *cough* spare time.
Also the million lovely comments that people have left that I haven't responded to yet. FULL OF FAIL.
What's gone on with me in the past, geez, 9 months, you ask? Here's a list!
- On Frost-Tipped Feathers for spn_reversebang with the amazingly talented quickreaver - My worldbuilding obsession, let me show it to you!
- Of Beds and Beehives for the 24 hour porn challenge at come_at_once - Retirementlock!
- Muse FM for spn_j2_bigbang with the incomparable dollarformyname - Radios and mythology!
- Plus some challenge fics that I apparently never reposted here. OOPS. I'll have to get around to that.
- I worked a lot. Being a high school English teacher is REALLY time-consuming, just in case you were wondering.
- I went to SIX conventions between March and June: CostumeCon 35, Awesome Con, Niagara Falls Comicon, Anime North, Ad-Astra and Toronto Comicon. Some highlights include my kickass Borderlands cosplay, going to Washington DC for the first time, meeting DAVID FUCKING TENNANT and making a pair of worbla bracers in a workshop. Ask me for details if you want info/photos!
- I went to Alberta to see my sister and admire the mountains.
- I saw Ed Sheeran in concert twice (once in Toronto and once in Edmonton), Hans Zimmer in concert once, and went to a bunch of plays.
...and that's all I can think of right now. I know it's been especially quiet here since the mass exodus to Dreamwidth (where I have a mirror account, for those who would rather see me there), but what's everyone been up to?
