a somewhat update

Guys. It is February. FREAKING FEBRUARY. And the third and final installment of Theophany (everybody say whoooooo!) which centers around FREAKING CHRISTMAS...is not yet finished. And I'm here to tell you why.

1. Life. With a capital L. And maybe some extra e's at the end. Lifeeeee.

But mostly,
2. Grad school applications. I've been working like crazy to get my application, personal statement, CV, and creative submission (gulp) for each school together, in between working two jobs and being a normal 24 year old who lives at home with her family and makes time for them sometimes.

I haven't forgotten it. I'm still writing. It breaks my heart that we'll all have moved on to other holidays by the time I post it, because it is a Christmas fic dammit, but I will finish and it will be posted.

So. Carry on.

do not give me money at this time

So I'm in the process of applying to grad schools.

I would rate it 10/10 for stress, +5 because they're all in the UK and I'm in 'murica. Also there's the small matter of me graduating a few years ago, so +5 for that and the feeble hope that anyone remembers me over there. Then my academic advisor and the professor of most of my major classes died unexpectedly a year ago, so +1000000 for that because now I have to a) figure out what other professors could write a letter for me, b) figure out which of those professors were ones who taught classes where I performed particularly well, and c) figure out which of those professors remembers me well enough.

In other news, I bought an out of print book from 1978 from Amazon for $40 used. (New copies are selling for about $200.) I know almost nothing about this book except that it has five stars almost everywhere and I had a bunch of gift cards saved up. I hope it's cool?

I'm doing super awesome when it comes to making decisions right now. Clearly. /facepalm
