Howdy Folks… If any of you are left.
So, this might be a thing. I might actually be coming back permanently to deviant art and writing more. Why? Well, two reasons. One of those reasons is that I finally finished University! After 5 years of sleepless nights and anxiety I'm done! No more essays, no more dry readings about gender, colonialism, pastoralism, or the like. I'm free to read and write what ever I wish.
But Laura, you might be saying- every other summer has been nearly the same- you've promised us that you we're going to write oodles and oodles of things and then it never happens and you disappear for another 3-6 months or so. And that has formerly been the case but this year is a twee bit different. I no longer work in the pits of hell that is called the Dollar store. I work in a new shiny office for an answering service in order to get some Office experience as well as money for Teacher's college. So that's a thing. But in this shiny new job I get unrestricted computer access through the day… well one exception. I can't play movies or music… so that means i'm stuck with text and visual based content. I am unwilling to play games just for the sole fact that I might have to take a call and pause and I don't think that's going to work well with my fairly one track mind. If I am browsing deviant art and writing poetry and stories in my down time- then that might work better. Thing is I can have free range of activities outside of calls--> and writing would be the preferred outlet for this time.
I've also started reading more again so that writing should come along with that pretty well considering it has in the past.
Currently reading Doctor Sleep by Stephen King- which is the continuation of The Shining. I am liking it pretty well… well other than a glaring plothole I noticed ( If you're going to have a 13 year old being shocked by explicit content of a sexual nature- do not have her being a GOT fan… silly…Also! watch GOT because you think that Dany's some sort of knight or something…. when she's a Queen and a Khaleesi and probably would not attack someone with a lance because she has dragons for godsakes. I feel like he would've been better off using Katniss Everdeen as the age appropriate equivalent to a strong female character but the man's like 75 years old so I can't blame him for using current pop culture references wrong)
I'm so sleepy rn and nervous. The calls coming in gives me mini panic attacks because it's my first day doing inbounds and it's kind of scary. You have to answer and be super pleasant when your heart is racing three miles per minute and I wish I could be more of an adult about this and answer the calls without freaking out but I've never had to do anything like this before… I know I'll get used to it but when is the question. I have two days off and then I have a 9 hour shift on Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully by the end of Sunday I will be less panicky about the whole institution and be able to do this without freaking out majorly. Part of me wants to just stare at the reception panel until a call comes up so I'm not caught off guard but I don't think that would help very much.
ANYWHO. I'm going to freak out some more but once I get more comfortable with doing this I'll definitely start posting more.
