grlgoddess: (DW Master - craaazy)

I've just connected Big Finish (the DW audio company thing) with Big Idea (the company behind Veggie Tales). Now I'm trying to fit Larry the Cucumber into Zagreus and I think my brain just broke a little. I should probably go to sleep now...

I kind of really hate the whole concept of essays. (Which may be why it is 2am, and I'm not even a quarter done one that's due at 1 this afternoon) But really, what's the point? Why do I have to ramble on for over a thousand words to try and make a point that I could make in a paragraph? What does that accomplish? All this does is teach students how to bullshit their way through everything and it just stresses everyone out! And it's probably of as much real-world importance as learning how to factor quadratic equations or something (aka none).

I'm just procrastinating now. Which is ridiculous and stupid, but there's not much I can do to stop that. It's taking all my will not to switch over and start rambling in my NaNo, but that's mostly because I'm putting this essay in my NaNo (I've decided I might as well start cheating right off the bat this year, rather than waiting for the inevitable panic later).

ETA: Also, my sense of 'organisation' makes it damn near impossible to get out of my bed, and even more daunting to get back to where I need to be to work. I think I need a desk. A really really big desk...

Right, so I think I might, maybe, possibly, actually have a plan for the future. It's a very weird sensation.

After realising that University math sucks, I decided that Accounting was probably not my best idea as a fall-back. So it became English. Sometime last semester, I decided I was going to be an English major. The flaw in this plan is, that despite being pretty decently skilled at reading, writing, grammar, and other Englishy skillz, my English marks have always been hovering around the mid- to high-sixties range. Seventies if I got lucky. But, whatever. I guess I'm just going to have to try to learn how to write an essay. Maybe one of these days I'll actually manage to hit the minimum word count again. *sigh*

I know that with an English major, I'm probably best suited to finding a job somewhere in publishing. And I know that I definitely don't want to be a straight-up editor. I don't really like messing with other people's stuff, and I'm a terrible judge of quality. So somehow, I found the job of copy-editor. Mostly, a copy-editor will check out the grammar and structure of a piece, trying to make sure it's all internally consistent, grammatically correct, and understandable. So there's my career.

The problem with this, is that I'm probably going to have to start out freelancing. Which presumably involves people. And communication. Which I suck at. But I'm just going to have to suffer through it. I'm going to have to try and get enough money living here, that I can move to Ontario and try to get a permanent job with a publishing house.

Which raises more problems! Such as, how the hell am I supposed to survive living somewhere where I don't know anybody? Especially when I'm currently almost freaking out just because I can't go home every other weekend, or whenever I want, because my stupid job keeps me working weekends.

I should stop worrying about all of that. It's years away. I just need to calm down, get some rest, and try not to fail English. Easy enough right?

I'm screwed.

In response to the massive earthquake in Haiti, [ profile] help_haiti was created as a fandom auction, with proceeds going to help recover. I signed up offering a fic here, but definitely have a look at the other posts to see if there's anything you'd like!

Charity works have always been a part of fandom for me. My first fandom was Harry Potter, and Wizard Rock has always been very charitable. Also, it was way easier to convince my parents to drop $60 on a bunch of CDs when I could say it was going to help the situation in Darfur. Fandom is such a community thing, and the community banding together to help others is an amazing thing to be a part of. Even though I can't financially contribute, spreading awareness and encouraging others is good enough.

Crappy!week is crappy, and not looking to get better...

So, I was wondering if any of you lovely people who I stalk, but fail at commenting at, would have any kinda-happy-but-not-ridiculously-annoying tidbits to share?

Well, there are rumors that the new era of Doctor Who will bring back Gallifrey and the Time Lords. I have my own little crack-theory as to how this might happen.
TaaDaa!! )

{and that is how it all went down}

{also, I ought to add that my knowledge of ClassicWho is pretty near nonexistant. Also, this is complete crack.}
