Re: More good stuff!
Got everything I went shopping for at the Black Friday sales -- two of the items even cheaper than they had been advertised!  New TVs and Blu-ray players!  Woohoo!

What to do?
My web design course finishes up in the new year and I'm considering whether to study another after it (they've got courses in Photoshop, PHP and other related subjects coming up) or focus fully on finding another job.

Maybe I should just sign up to a course and keep looking for work, but I don't like taking on a course if I may not stick around to see it through.

Re: What to do?
Just had a first meeting with a new writers' workshop group that a friend of mine is starting up.  We talked about some ideas for stories, about setting some easily attainable goals that will still get us to a good point in a reasonable amount of time, and discussed concepts like knowing your target audience and how to write a 'genre' novel without falling into the stereotypes of the genre.

I think this could be a really big...REALLY big...help for me, to get off my butt and get focused on consistently writing again.

I placed an order for heating oil today, so in a few days it should be warm and toasty instead of utterly freezing. :)

Re: What to do?
So, it's official, as of today (well, tomorrow, technically, since that's when the assignment would start).  I have a third job...freelancing as a copy writer for an online marketing company.  And I might have a big costume project to take care of in the next two weeks...find out tomorrow.  I have a makeup gig on Friday.  The last big hitch I was dreading in the script I'm writing (adapting, actually, from a fanfic story in a Star Trek club newsletter that some friends in the club want to turn into a video project) fell into place because the one person I could think of who used to speak Klingon with any degree of fluency still remembered enough of it to translate the appropriate lines for me.

It's been a pretty awesome day.  I wouldn't even mind if the costume project fell through.  With so many things going right, I don't want to get greedy.  Let the good fortune spread itself throughout the season, y'know?

Re: What to do?
My gaming buddies.

I'm taking an exam today that will (finally!) fulfill the last of my requirements to get a bachelors degree. I'm pinging off the walls from nerves, but I've gotten nothing but support and encouragement from all my gaming buddies. Some of these people I've known online for years, others are newer friends, but all of them are awesome.

Is it dusty in here?  I think I've got something in my eyes....

And here we are at Chapter One...
So...I just finished the first draft of my first ever freelance writing assignment.  I'd be ecstatic about this, but it was writing a white paper for a technology firm (don't know what a white paper is?  Neither did I, before getting this assignment...)

I'm incredibly relieved that I've actually been able to glean enough for the heavily-jargon-laden information that was passed on to me to be able to figure out where to look online for other stuff that was actually easier to understand, which explained what it was that they wanted me to re-write for them.  I also feel like my brain has flowed out of my ears and congealed in my lap.  *grin*

But, hey...first draft has been sent in for a review, and it's not due until Friday, so if it needs some polishing (and I know it does, in at least two places, because I ran out of brain cells before I ran out of topics to cover), I've still got some time to do something about it!

I was just promoted to team leader! I worked so hard this year and I didn't think it was going to happen because of the crisis. I'm super happy right now :3

Re: And here we are at Chapter One...
Months ago, brother-in-law calls me lazy bum.

Yesterday, I carried out a 50lb. bag of road salt out of the basement and out to his car with one hand.

Tonight, he can barely move it a fraction of the distance out of the car, with no steep stairs involved and employing both his hands and with a lb less salt in it.

Win for ego.
