Do you know how awesome you are?

You are so awesome that I have 544 notifs right now! That is some wonderful kind of awesome!

So, let's start with an apology. I have been phoning it in lately, and it kills me. I am so sorry. Work has been hectic, home has been hectic, work got even more insane. And then my home internet is spotty so even if I get home with ambition, I can't play along well (but it's rare to get home with ambition). I try to catch up between things at work, but I never manage much. I love this place, love you guys so much! It kills me to be behind. It will be for a while, though. (We're hiring so busy until newbie gets trained)

Okay then, back to wonderful things! How are you doing on Rare Pairs? How are you doing on all the things? I want to know that even though I'm not on the ball, all of you are keeping the ball rolling.

What are your awesome plans for this week? How were you very awesome last week? Are you kicking 2015's proverbial butt?

Don't apologize! Life can really screw us up sometimes. Just keep breathing and you'll make it through!

I'm making slow progress on my original fic, which is a beautiful thing. I'll make more if I can ever get time to read a couple of these nonfiction books I downloaded. But the fiction calls my name... :)

It's so exciting to be getting an assistant, but it's taking up a ton to time trying to read resumes and hold interviews. I really feel like I have nothing to show for my days.


YAY FIC!!! I have such a difficult time with non fiction. I completely get it!
Jan. 12th, 2015 10:33 pm (UTC)
Ugh, thankfully I wasn't the one who had to dig through resumes! Only once my boss narrowed it down to three people did he ask my opinion. LOL But this is progress!

Yay fic! I know, unless it's a biography or something exciting, I have trouble with nonfiction, too. But... I have them so I must read them. Eventually... LOL

She/he will be my assistant and I do appreciate that he wants me to go through the process rather than, here is your help.

I do wish I could read and knit at the same time.

Absolutely. You need to know that they can do their job and that you won't want to smother them with a manilla file folder at every break. In my case, they were looking for someone to take my place so I could move, so it wasn't such an issue.

Too bad we can't get Audible for fanfic, right?
Jan. 12th, 2015 11:00 pm (UTC)
Fanfic is my before bed reading, but... I should look into audio books. They just don't feel like you've 'read' them. Does that make sense?
Jan. 12th, 2015 11:09 pm (UTC)
Yes, it does. And also, if you get a lousy narrator, it can ruin the entire thing. I'll occasionally download an audiobook from the library and listen on my way to and from work. But I tend to miss my exit on the freeway and... well... LOL

I love Rick Riordan, but I had a very hard time reading the Kane Chronicles. The chapters bounced back and forth in first person perspective. I didn't always follow that it was the brother not the sister speaking. MUCH better 'read' as audio books. Wonderful story. But yeah, you forget to get off the highway, or you sit in the parking lot listening when you should be walking in!
Jan. 12th, 2015 11:21 pm (UTC)
That would have made me nuts, I think. It does sound like it would translate much better as an audio in that case.

Hahaha... or the alternative - I was listening to Chelsea Cain's Heartsick about serial killer Gretchen Lowell and Detective Archie Sheridan... and I was sitting at a red light, making faces at the gross descriptions of crime scenes. The guy in the car next to me must've been frightened judging by the look on his face.
Jan. 12th, 2015 11:26 pm (UTC)
Pfft! I can do that just listening to Bryan Adams! ;)

Jan. 12th, 2015 11:32 pm (UTC)
Hahaha! My office isn't all that far from the Strip and I sometimes think people expect to find crazy people in the vicinity. LOL
Jan. 12th, 2015 11:35 pm (UTC)
Good point!
Jan. 12th, 2015 06:38 pm (UTC)
I want this creative kick I'm on to stick around for as long as it can, because soon, i better/have to have a job or I'll have even less time as I'll be packing to move across the country to live with my brother for a while.

So, I'm planning on milking this creative burst I've had the last few days for all it's worth. I'm working on a 30 day fic challenge as well as my fic for casestory big bang and pressies for the birthday challenge here.
Jan. 12th, 2015 07:02 pm (UTC)
Fingers crossed!

I kind of got through the Weekend Challenge unscathed but I don't know how successful it was because I only had three people writing anything.

Maybe my random song titles as prompts wasn't a good one? Live and learn I guess :):)
Jan. 12th, 2015 08:24 pm (UTC)
Not everyone can produce that quickly. The challenge went well, you had a bunch of people ask for prompts! IT WAS AWESOME!
Jan. 12th, 2015 08:37 pm (UTC)
You are very kind and I hope your work life improves soon--you deserve a break :)
Jan. 12th, 2015 08:59 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much, hon! 5 interviews tomorrow, then a decision on Wednesday, and hopefully new hire on Monday! :D

Thanks so much!
Jan. 12th, 2015 08:20 pm (UTC)
I HATE it when work kicks your butt to the point of failing miserably with practically everything else. Hopefully the newbie will catch on quick so you can relax a little.

I'm totally kicking 2015's butt right now. Just hoping I can keep it going and blow my writing goals for the year completely out of the water!!
Jan. 12th, 2015 08:25 pm (UTC)
Well, clearly you can! YAY YOU!!
Jan. 12th, 2015 09:53 pm (UTC)
How are you doing on Rare Pairs?
I have an idea, and by "idea" I mean I'm going to write something that's going to be about 90% porn. I just need to sit down long enough to actually write it...
Jan. 12th, 2015 09:55 pm (UTC)
PORN totally counts!!!
Jan. 12th, 2015 11:31 pm (UTC)
Work's not been too crazy at the moment since the new "Defence Against The Dark Arts" person seems to be working out so far.

I'm determined to start as I mean to go on with writing and doing well so far - I did have a bit of a clear out of WIPs that I hadn't touched since 2013, didn't get very far then and probably wouldn't ever have gone back to. That leaves me free to get on with what I really want to write. It's working well so far.
Jan. 12th, 2015 11:34 pm (UTC)
That is a wonderful plan!!!! And yay for people who can stay!

Jan. 13th, 2015 03:16 am (UTC)
I feel like I'm just treading water of late. Getting wrote at work doesn't help with that feeling, but I'll push on through. I got an idea for Rare Pairs and I need to whip out birthday fic while trying to sneak in some housework.
Jan. 13th, 2015 01:20 pm (UTC)

Yeah, *hugs*

We'll get through this, and the damn housework too.
