Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Alles schläft; einsam wacht
Nur das traute hochheilige Paar.
Holder Knabe im lockigen Haar,
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!

Merry Christmas, y'all.

Personal ramblingsCollapse )

Fantasy Big Bang proceeds as these things usually do with me. That is, at a snail's pace. I'm getting better, though - I have 304 words written already, and a decent collection of information for worldbuilding.

Well done, Judge Walker.

Have seen Inception. Will possibly post about it when brain has stopped folding and folding in on itself and I can post coherently.

Also, my first employee physical went very well.

Paperwork filled out, schedule set, and all there is to do is sit around and wait. And try not to panic.

I'm sure that'll go well.

Also I signed up for fantasybigbang. Because writing deadlines and me get along so well. At least the deadline's nice and long? And the brainstorming process is always fun.

It's something like 96 degrees out there. And a heat index of 104. Rain, if you ever feel like coming back, please do. We could use the cooldown.

I have all the paperwork filled out and sent in at last (thank you, Prospective Employer, for using a program that isn't compatible with Macs for your hiring process. wth?). Now I just have to wait for them to schedule the two day physical, make sure I have all my documentation in order, and I'm good.

In spite of the heat, I went for a ride around the river bicycle path. Not that many people out today, but it was a lot of fun, even if I had to keep stopping to rest and hydrate every half-mile. They've been working on sections of it for a year now, but the repairs definitely paid off. It's a lot smoother than I remember, and the lanes are actually marked now instead of just being left to the user's discretion.

Blerg. Did not get a lot done today, it'll be at least a week until the prospective employers email me to set up a physical, and my computer is being uncooperative when it comes to transferring iTunes files. And candidates for any public office who wedge fliers into my door make me want to vote against them on principle, no matter what their party or stances.

On the plus side, the weather is beautiful and looks to stay so for the rest of the week, and the library had the first two books in the Riddle-Master of Hed trilogy. It's slow reading, but it's very good, and different from the fantasy I usually read.

So, in the past month and a half I have -

- Become a certified CNA.

- Spent more time around my extended family than in all last year put together.

- Gone to Peru to see the first of my cousins get married.

- Drunk Pisco Sours for the first time.

- Walked through the catacombs of a monastery built in the 1600s.

- Eaten some incredibly good gelato.

- Gotten a list of contacts written up, and begun to send out resumes and schedule interviews.

- Caught a case of traveler's diarrhea and gotten stuck at the airport for half a day while American Airlines tried to get us on two different planes at once.

- Finished reading His Majesty's Dragon.

Bumps aside, it's been a pretty good start to 2010.

Now all I have is the Multi-Skills test on Tuesday, a certification test to take when I can schedule it with the health department, and I will be a licensed Certified Nurse Assistant.

Three more days of studying is a small price to pay, I think. Especially when I can wake up sometime after 5:40 for now.

Hey there, internets. It’s been too long.

I’ve been looking over some old ideas for NaNoWriMo and wondering if I should give it a shot this year. Writing’s been getting easier and easier over the past month or so; there are two stories sitting on my computer that just need some tightening before I feel ready to post them. Hmmm. *ponders*

I've got a couple of applications turned in; now all I have to do is wait and see if either prospective employer bothers to call back. The lawn is almost mowed, and it'd be one less thing to worry about if the edger would cooperate and start working properly.

In the meantime, femslash09 is taking signups until June 3rd. If you're a fic writer and haven't already signed up, I'd definitely suggest doing so; there are some awesome prompts this year.

Also, I saw the new Star Trek movie with my dad and brother, which was even better than I'd hoped!

Spoilers belowCollapse )

It'll be interesting to see what Paramount does with the franchise after this movie.

I totally wasn't planning on adding another webcomic to my must-read list, but.

If the idea of a dramatic, fast paced story about bootleggers, jazz musicians, mobsters and death defying escapades in 1930s St. Louis (which just happens to be inhabited by anthropomorphic cats) sounds like your kind of read, then head on over to Lackadaisy and prepare to loose an hour or two of your time.

Blerg. Figures the weather would remember it's supposed to be winter, just as the new semester is starting up. Because sticky streets are exactly what I need now.

Tulsa's unfortunate climate aside, it's been a good 2009 so far. I've finally picked out a major (political science, subject to change without notice), the classes this year have just the right balance between challenging and understandable, and I may have a job soon.

All I need to do now is survive the roads. And the Tulsa drivers, who really aren't good with slick roads of any kind.

Winter semester is finally over and done with. Last paper handed in, last final taken, last class attended. Now to go collapse and not wake up until after Christmas.

In significantly more rage inducing news - great job with the epic fail, Shyamalan. There isn't much I can say about this particular stupidity that hasn't been said better elsewhere, so I'll just join in the chorus of people hoping that Dante and Bryan had no part in this.

Pros -

- I had a great Halloween. No trick-or-treaters, nice dinner with the parents, and no marauding zombies, LJ's decor notwithstanding.

- School is getting easier. The pattern of study/homework/panic/take test is starting to actually feel natural, instead of something I have to force myself into every day.

- Gas prices are lower than I'd let myself hope they'd be.

- Voting on Monday. Sure, it's Oklahoma and my Democratic vote is almost guaranteed to be a waste, but things seem to be going well for Obama and it'll be good to be make my choice and be heard.

- My NaNoWriMo project has a definite beginning, and I'm starting to see where the overall plot will go. (I'm Tin Man if anyone's interested)

- Therapy on Monday.


- I have to study for a Spanish test, memorize two monologues and a scene from Streetcar Named Desire, and finish my leftover math homework before Monday.

- I still have a NaNo count of zero.

- My keyboard is doing its best to drive me insane.

- Therapy on Monday.

All in all, I think it balances out.

I've decided to give the whole NaNo thing yet another try. Despite having written nothing longer than 3000 words in years. Determination to succeed at something, or latent masochism? You decide.

So, Josh. What have you learned after being back at college for a few weeks?

- "I'm about to beat BioShock" is not a good reason to stay up till 1:00 AM.

- Drama teachers are hard to annoy, but forgetting your lines too often can help.

- A schedule is good for you. No, really. No matter what your head is telling you at 9:00 in the morning.

- Teachers can always get weirder. And more boring.

- There can be no scribbling fanfic in your notebook when you should be taking notes.

- Do not put off math homework. Walk too far down that road and you end up trying to get it done at 2 in the morning, wondering how you made 2+(-3) x 5 = -6.
