With September Almost Gone…

I’ve been a bad girl, I admit. I haven’t written much in the past few weeks, due to practicing English through exercises, diving back into some needed artwork, and trying to prepare for college as best as I could. Now is the week I’m finally settling down in my broom cupboard in S, and there are still so many things to worry about that, even though I had sworn to myself that I’d go on working on WoS in the next days, I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to churn down. But I’m getting there. Oh, yes, I’m getting there.

College is a mess, as expected. Of course, getting listed for my classes was to clash with my work schedule. Of course, half the people I talk to send me to other people, who in turn send me to offices that are open only on mornings (or on afternoons; or on some days of the week only). Of course, I need my student card for too many things right now, when I only receive it on Thursday. It’s all good, though. As said, it was expected, and the brain manages to retain its zen attitude for the moment.

On the good side of things, people at work were oddly understanding. As long as I do my job, they don’t care if I work my hours in the mornings, in the evenings, or on Saturdays at 4 am. That’s all good with me. I just wish I had my own laptop back, since the one I’m on now is too old to run all my software properly. Ah, and I also have an internet connection. Which means no sneaky updates from cyber-cafés here and there.

I definitely want to post here more again, if only to share the latest news (I’m doing NaNoWriMo again this year; I want to test how much not having a life and being busy 24/7 will make me more productive). Maybe I’ll even have nice bits learned during classes to share, who knows.

For the moment, I’m about to head to the office for the afternoon, so I need to put an end to this post. More to come soon. I hope!

    I’m steering clear of Nano this year. I don’t have the mindset to do it this year. I think it’s cool that your doing it again though. You will have to keep us up to date on your progress!

    I must admit I’ve pondered the decision, but this year is probably the last year I can do it. 2007, with holding my job, working for my 3rd year of License degree, AND preparing the national teachers exam, will be one hell of a no-life wasteland, and down the drain will go NaNo.Besides, I want to try and see if I can grab a couple students in English to walk this road with me. It’d be a good opportunity for us to practice the language, especially given that we’re going to have classes about GB and US Literature. :)

    Good luck! Seriously. I know how hard it is to Nano. There is the lurking imp on my shoulder that makes me think that I might end up participating at the last minute.

    Thank you! The harder this year will definitely be the time I’ll have to write (or the lack thereof). I already have plenty of material in my head for a 50k story, I’ll just need to, well… write fast, and hope that I won’t find myself a really crappy student forced to sleep 2 hours a night only and study the rest of the time. :D

    Argh, I’m late on reading blogs again! My aggregator is on my other PC, which I don’t have during the week, which I don’t turn on that often during the week-end anymore, and this old machine here isn’t mine, so I don’t want to install too many things on it… I want my laptop back! Then I’ll do my best to catch up on you folks’ blogs again, promise. :) Uh, where was I… Ah yes, adding you to my buddy list! Yes! I’m going to do that right now before the last class of the day starts, else I’ll be completely out of the loop again.
