Back To School

Well, for many of us we’ve either been in school for a while now or we’re just starting (like myself… this is my first week back). All sorts of exciting things are happening! 😀

First of all, I’m back with all of my dear friends (including Natalie), and although I admit that the list of my irl friends is short, they’re all very wonderful and inspiring and it’s so great to be back with them.

Secondly, my classes are going really well! I’m more than two weeks ahead in my philosophy reading and I’ve not even had the second day of class in it yet. I’m about a week ahead in my British Writers’ class, but I’ve read a lot of it before so that was unsurprising. I’m taking a course called British Domestic Interiors and what are we reading excerpts of the first week??? What else but Dickens??? 😀

I haven’t had much time for watching things lately, so once again I’m behind on Revenge, but with the rate my schoolwork is going I think I’ll probably catch up this weekend. Natalie and I are probably going to watch The Perks of Being a Wallflower on Friday because my college is showing it free. I’ve got a massive box of microwave popcorn and it SHALL be utilized!

As far as writing, while it’s slowing down at the moment because of school, it’s not coming to a screeching halt. I’ve come up with a system that lessens the amount of time spent writing voluntarily to virtually zero (unless I’m at least a week ahead in all classes and do not have a paper due within two weeks, in which case I can write while I, idk, do laundry or something) and I only write when I get reviews, follows, reminders from my calendar programmed months ago at strategic times in the semester…. So virtually not very often, especially because posting is going to be at a bare minimum, BUT, it will happen maybe once or twice a month I expect, probably with chapters that are already nearly done.

And God help me if I finish my next chapter of Faithful, because I will then be bombarded. That’s the one that people follow randomly even when I’ve not updated in weeks. *sigh*

Well, that’s all of your update for now. I swear nothing exciting has happened, so don’t feel like I’m holding back. I haven’t even had a chance to get my submission ready for The Cincinnati Review. It’s on my list of things to do this weekend, so we’ll see. It’s a long list.
