yaysunshine: (freaking out omg)

some quick notes:

  • I got a new job! I start on February 1! It's very exciting and it'll be a fun change but there's a lot of great people I'll miss at my current gig.
  • I am about 20k words into a lesbian regency romance novel and it turns out writing romance is real fun and something that works surprisingly well for me? (additionally: I have now read a lot of romance novels as Market Research. Current faves: Courtney Milan, Theresa Romain, Stephanie Laurens.)
  • I managed to write 750 words plus per day for the first two weeks of 2015, which, honestly, not bad.
  • All the dye is almost grown out of my hair; I was thinking this time I might try just bleaching my bangs and doing stuff with that. Might do some kind of multicolor thing? IDK I have not decided yet. Anyway I ordered a bunch of dye so I can have a lot of options.
  • Haha good lord this weather, why
  • Also it turns out that I didn't realize the service-provider-provided modem did not, in fact, also do the function of a router; we now have a router; our internet connection is way less garbagey now
  • and apparently I'm excited enough about my next Exalted character that I've already got an entire playlist for her. Also got some Fun Ideas from recent Steven Universe plotlines for some of how I'm going to play her :v

for [personal profile] fuchsian!

I grew up in Minnesota, just outside the Twin Cities area, in a small, semi-rural suburb that gradually became a large, very developed suburb. In general, it's a quiet, friendly place, and I like it quite a bit there.

The tricky part out there is transportation, though, which Chicagoland is great at. Well, we all complain about Ventra and buses and trains running late, but it's so nice to be able to be able to hop the a train or a bus and be able to get nearly anywhere you could want to go in the area. There's also just stuff around, I guess. My home neighborhood is nice, but it's just houses and schools and golf courses for miles. It's idyllic and great for running, but it gets kind of isolating. I didn't care so much when I was in high school and younger, but now that I'm used to just going places on my own I get weird about not being able to do that as easily. (Though I miss being able to go out to State Parks. The one thing I can't do without a car!)

I think I still kind of like the peaceful suburban atmosphere, though, which is why I'm really resistant to moving into Chicago proper, though, haha. Now if we could just get a Caribou Coffee in here, with the polar vortex it'll be just like home.

There's a decent MS-DOS emulator for Mac!  THIS MEANS: I am getting my parents to send me my copy of Star Wars: X-Wing right away so I can test it out.  Because if I can play X-Wing on my computer, my life will officially be extremely awesome.

Although it's already pretty rad because I think I might be getting the Princess Tutu box set for my birthday~ (SIDE NOTE: WHAT IS THIS WHY AM I NEARLY 22 HOW DID I GET THIS OLLLLLLDDDD)

Have been doing 750words to get my writings done for my independent study project game—I did a bunch of heavy revisions to the beginning and I think it's much better now.  I actually managed to solve a couple issues I had with the initial draft, which was cool.  I have also been compiling a moodboard for the art through Tumblr that already has a semi-ridiculous amount of material >_>

 except for furniture.

I'm serious.  I see nice furniture these days and I just want to have a home that I can take it to and put it in.

OH GOD I THINK I MIGHT BE BECOMING A REAL ADULT.  I'm not sure I'm ready for this guys.  I'm nowhere near responsible enough to have furniture of my own.
