Too Many Ideas  
I have way too many story ideas. Right now I am juggling between ideas for Doctor Who and The Lord of the Rings. I also have to continue an Avengers story as well as finish writing one for a ficathon. So I've been busy on that part.

College starts back up today; so that is going to cut into things. But we'll see what will happen.

Hello all!  

How's everyone doing?  Hope everyone is doing well.

As for me, I just found out that when I talk to myself at work, my co-workers think I'm strange.  Not in a bad strange.  But in a weird strange.  I can live with weird.  Weird is good.  And they think that I am hilarious when I do it.  Okay, I talk to myself...a lot.  A habit from growing up an only child.  Only person I really ever had to talk to was myself.  Though this now comes in handy when I'm writing, so I consider it a gift.

And I am starting to love wine.  I started drinking a little bit before bed to help me relax and sleep.  And trust me, it's better than sleeping pills.  And I go for the cheap wine.  But it is good! 

Storywise, I need a volunteer to help me with a fic that I am doing for someone.  It's a fic fest in the Avengers fandom and I need someone to throw ideas at.  I do have a prompt (thank goodness), but I could use some support.  If interested, just comment!

And so far I have a 3.5 GPA so far at UoP.  This makes me very happy!  The classes are pretty tough at the moment, but all in the name of getting a degree.

Talk to ya all soon!

Going to see Thor  

The movie.  Ever since it came out, I have been wanting to go see it.  The previews look awesome, and some people on my LJ friends list have given it rave reviews.  So, since I finally have day off, I'm going to go see it.  It's a 7pm showing, but it will be worth it.

In other news, I got my final grades back - 1 A and 4 B's with a GPA of 3.42.  That's pretty good - though my GPA went down 0.10 from last semester.  Oh, well.

Mom went back to work this week.  She's still getting back into the swing of things and get her energy back to do it.  But she's doing well.

Also, I made a decision to try to change my diet and get back into my yoga and walk more.  I'm doing this to try and change my lifestyle as well as being there for Mom since she is a borderline diabetic (dad's full-blown diabetic).  She had to change a lot, so I am going to try and do it along with her.  Besides, if I ever develop diabetes, I have a head start.

As fic news, I'm still going through my Tron obsession.  It's driving me nuts.  I got ideas coming out from everywhere.  Right now, I'm trying to consolidate them into something I can write.  I may have something in the next few days, so keep a look out.

And YAY!  CBS renewed CSI: NY for an eighth season.  I was so scared after watching the season finale this past Friday that that would be it.  I'm so happy it's coming back!

That's about it for now.  I'll let you all know what I think of the movie!

I posted this over at LJ and now I am going to post this here.  These are general questions.

I am doing research for one of my essays in my Writing Creative Nonfiction class.  This is a voluntary Q&A, so you don't have to do it.

And you don't have to give me your real name.  I'm sure my professor will let me do without.  But I may have to use our username.  I hope to post the essay after I turn it in and when it's graded.  That way you'll know what I did. 

This essay Q&A is mostly for the LJ users who live in the USA.  But those of my friends who live in different countries can answer to tell me how it works in there country.

Here's how you can help:The questions are:

1.  What do you think about the Obama Healthcare Plan (for those in the USA)? 
2.  What do you think about the healthcare system in general?

You can post a comment on this post or send me a private message.  Comments will be screened.  Or at least I hope so.  If not, just send me a message.

Any help wold be appreciated!

College Classes, Fic News, and Life  
I decided to give a general update on everything, because later I am gong to finish up a fic and start my homework.

But anyway....

College Classes

I am loving them so far.  Especially my Lord of the Rings class.  But I have a lot of writing this semester, so everything else is on the back burner.  But I will try to keep up with everything.


I am hating my job right now.  As of next week, I have 13 hours.  I can't live on that!  So now I am thinking about looking for a new job.

Also, I am in the process of looking for a college to transfer after this one.  But I can't decide what branch of journalism I should go into.  I can do:

Travel journalism
Political journalism
Environmental journalism
Global journalism
Magazine journalism

and so much more!

My head is probably gong to explode later.

Fic News

I am still copying down part 2 of my Alt!10 fic.  And then I will start on part three and then go on to my LOTR fic.  Just keep looking!

College has Begun!  

Well, college has officially begun; and boy am I going to be in for a lot of writing.  My Writing Creative Nonfiction alone has six one-page assignments, two long essays, and a really long one towards the end of the semester.  Then I have research papers, book and film reviews, and something else that I don't remember in my other three classes.

Needless to say, my fandom writing is going to sporadic for a while.  I will try to post often, but don't expect much.

Speaking of my fics, my CSI: NY fic is on hold and my CSI: NY/Criminal Minds one has run into writer's block.  My Human Doctor three-parter is coming along nicely.  I just have to transfer the second chapter from paper to computer and get started on the third.  I guess I just like writing him.

My LOTR story ideas are coming along nicely (with some advice from [ profile] malicehaughton).  With my Lord of the Rings class about to start, I may be writing more in that fandom.
