Okay, yes, hello! Not that much progress has been made on the busy front but I'm typing this out anyway. If you don't care about the things I do, please feel free to ignore this completely.
So my need for editors ended up being totally pointless because things happened that canceled out the thing I needed them for! I won't be able to graduate in the Spring and will have to wait until next Fall! Everywhere I've applied for or asked about an internship has told me that they aren't running them in Summer 2014! I'm back in therapy! A member of my extended family is (back) in critical condition! My car's relatively-minor-but-still-ballstastically-expensive cosmetic damage from a wreck in September hasn't been fixed and now it's starting to have unrelated problems and the insurance companies are trying to use that as an excuse to wiggle out! I've also developed severe insomnia and it's causing physical problems! My first world problems just keep escalating! AND WHY ARE THERE SO MANY EXCLAMATION POINTS?!
On the other hand, the financial aid office is finally throwing me a bone and considering me for financial aid instead of denying me outright like they have for the past three years. Late is better than never? Maybe I'll actually be able to afford my extra semester! That would be nice! And my work life is relatively fulfilling. Being forced to drop a few classes means I have more time to work, so I'm making more money and getting more opportunity at work. I'm helping present at a conference later this month and getting paid for my time! With all this experience I might be able to get a nice IT job if nothing else pans out. It's not my desired career path but I enjoy it and I might be able to pick up a few programming certifications from a community college relatively quick if I need to.
So basically I'm still working stuff out. I'd really love to get some photos or something hammered out, but there's no way of that happening until Thanksgiving or Winter Break. It sucks 'cause I've got stuff lined up from back in AUGUST that still doesn't have anything attached to it because I just haven't had the time. I really hate these long periods of inactivity. I always feel so bad, even though I know it's not like you guys are on the edges of your seats waiting for me to do stuff. I'm a total failure as an internet entertainer dress-up person. Ack. To be honest I probably could have had some stuff at Escapist, especially since I had White House!Shaundi completed, but... I didn't really want to walk around Escapist in cosplay after that little bit on the first day. I know it sounds kind of weird and hypocritical, but I'm starting not to like walking around cons in cosplay. It's really stressful. Maybe if I can regrow my self-esteem that'll change...
Anyway, what I was trying to do was apologize for yet another long period of inactivity. I am doing things, but those things are not things that people who watch me for other things are going to care about. I apologize! I'll get back to doing the things people are interested in as soon as I can.
