I kept putting this off and putting this off because I wanted to have a pretty piece to post for the few of you who actually read/comment on my stuff, but with all the time-crunching I've had to do lately, that hasn't exactly come out of the woodwork. So I finally decided to go ahead and break radio silence to reassure you people I'm not dead. :'D So see! Not dead!

Anyway, a lot of stuff has happened since Thanksgiving break. Most important things, I got accepted to:
Hollins U (VA)
Stephen F. Austin State (TX)
and I'm still waiting to hear back from Sam Houston State on paper, but their e-mails have indicated that I'm pretty much in, so there's that. I'm waiting to hear from Hollins whether or not I'm going up there in February to compete for one of their bigger scholarships, but from everything my admissions counselor has told me, I'm pretty sure I qualify. I know a couple of you guys were also talking about college, especially :iconstarrydynamocalypso:... anyone made decisions on where you're going yet? :D

In the same vein, I spend most of my days now working on scholarships, because in case you didn't know, college is 'spensive. I'm hoping to have a few done by the time I go back to my current school uuuuuuggggghhhh so that way I can come out of this whole experience with as little debt as possible. :'D Liberal arts school, ahoy!

Aaaanyyywaaaayyyy... I had a good Christmas. :) I hope everyone else had a good Christmas, or at least a good day if you don't celebrate it. I got the best gift of all: books! :heart: And some new bulletin boards for my dorm room, when I get one. :D It was fun. And then my grandparents came in on the 29th from VA, so we've been hanging out with them. Right now we're watching Knight and Day, aka The Most Accomadating Spy In The World Meets... I can't decide if she's acting like a normal person would act in this situation or if she's the biggest spaz ever. @_@ Maybe I only think she's a spaz because I'm used to people who get tangled up with stuff in spy movies being all 'Oh, okay, whatever' as opposed to 'WTFDONOTWANT' like an average person would be. Eh. :iconshrugplz: Either way, she seems to have some sort of touch of disaster, but hey, there has to be some continuing conflict to the story.

Speaking of stories, I got myself into two new fandoms over the break. :D I watched the whole first season of True Blood, and omfg, it's awesome. I love that show so hard. Sookie Stackhouse is actually a pretty capable heroine, when she's in the hands of a good writer, as opposed to certain fictional heroines I could name. -CoughBELLASWANcough- Lafayette and Tara are amazing characters as well - I really love how they experience actual growth, versus everyone just being static all the time like in the SMeyerverse. Also - the vampire Eric, with long hair, looks almost exactly like my main protagonist Leo in my novel. Like, freakishly so. D: Take a look:…
The nose and the eyecolor are off, but it's the closest I've ever seen in my life. 0_0 It was almost a little eerie... Eric and Leo act nothing alike (and if they met each other they'd probably hate each other) but there were times where the smile was so dead-on it scared me. -Sigh- Too bad the actor would probably be too old to actually play Leo if they ever made my books into a show/movie/whatever... but oh well. I can dream, dreamily. x3
I also got into Assassin's Creed 2 like woah - I skipped AC1 on my brother's suggestion, but I've researched the story so I know everything that happened. I love Ezio to death, he's adorable. XD Plus, all the little glyph sidequests are a dream for a history-nerd like myself. Sigh. :heart:
One more thing on my cool things list, I started playing Echo Bazaar!, which is this weird Victorian-dystopia-turn-by-turn thing I found online ( that's kind of fun when you have nothing else to do, or you're brain-stuck trying to write a scholarship essay, which happens to me a lot. :'D But moving on...

Clearing up something from my last journal: when my essay went on, I mean to say it went on to be judged and determine whether or not I go to DC... I definitely don't know whether or not I actually get to go yet. Sorry for the confusion. :'D But thanks so much to everyone who congratulated me! I know I don't always respond to comments on my stuff, and I always feel awful when I don't. XP But I always read and appreciate that you took the time. :heart:

Anyway. This journal turned out to be waaaaay longer than I thought it would be. :/ But it's been a while since I wrote, so I guess that justifies it. :'D

Now, what interesting things have you all been doing? ;P I want to know eeeeevvvvvverrrrryyyythiiiiiiiing. -Creepy stalker voice-

Hugs! :heart:

Thank you so much for taking the time to recommend these. :D I very much appreciate it. <3 I had been looking for some new things to watch, I'll be sure to check these out. :)

no problem
I still watch quite a few of them
especially the foreign ones- the europeans have such wonderful film
oh and I should tell you
a few of the older ones are silent
but profound all the same

I'm glad that you were one of the first members that I stumbled across
because your ideas are original and intriguing
and your narrative is very different from most writers of this genre

you have my intrigue
CatMacabre Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2010   Writer
Why thank you. :) I very much appreciate your compliments. :heart: And thank you also for the watch. I look forward to reading your poetry; you have my intrigue as well.
