A quick update as to what I've been up to (Hint: it involves making the face in my icon).

-- I'm so broke. I'm sooooooo broke. I mean, I'm okay, I'm not going to starve to death or anything, and it helps that Thanksgiving is coming up so I get a bit of a break, but still. I've been routinely paying my rent two weeks late for months now, but thankfully my landlord is understanding. Still, I'm so sick of being behind on bills and stuff, and I'm not looking forward to another Christmas where I can't give anyone anything. (Although my brother did offer to let me go 80/20 on gifts until I get bonuses and financial aid and taxes in January, since he's got a ton of money thanks to his job.)

-- On the plus side, my uncle got married on Saturday! He lives in New Jersey and he and his partner have been together something like forty years. They got a civil union a few years ago for the legal coverage, but once the marriage stuff went through and Chris Christie stopped being a douchebag, he pretty much ran out and got them a marriage license. We didn't get to go -- it was a VERY small ceremony because Werner wanted to keep things pretty low-key and private -- but I'm just really happy for the both of them. My uncle Bobby is a lovely person and so is Werner.

-- I still haven't heard back from the agent about "Heroine Addiction" yet. I did send him a short email to say hi and remind him that I'm alive, and he was really nice when he replied. He apologized and said he'd send me something more "substantial" later, so I'm hoping that's a good sign.

-- I've sort of given up on NaNo just because I have a couple of really big papers to get done with and I'm understandably more concerned about getting them done and done well. So I doubt I would be able to get that amount of work done this month on any story.

That said, once finals are over, I'm going to be all over this story like crazy. Not being able to write it means I've been able to brainstorm and plot and basically play around with ideas more, and I've got a couple of solid ideas that I'm itching to write.

Oh, and it's the HA sequel, if anybody's interested. ;)

-- I just wanted to share that I wore four-inch heels to a scholarship luncheon at school today and afterward on the way to class I fell down four stairs onto my butt because I was trying to walk in them and talk to a friend at the same time, and that's why I should learn to stick with boots and ballet flats and sneakers as per usual.

-- I bought new bedding about a month and a half ago, and I have never had bedding that wasn't a hand-me-down from a relative, and it's warm and snuggly and is orange microsuede-ish material underneath it, and it's possible I'm way more in love with it than a normal person should be.

-- Fandoms! Elementary's having a bit of a sophomore slump but I still love it, I'm behind on the Tomorrow People and I can't say I'm as enthusiastic as I would like to catch up, Arrow has become total crack for me, I started watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine and with the exception of Andy Samburg I'm in love, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is finally growing on me even though I still think Ward is being played by a blandly handsome block of wood, and I adore Sleepy Hollow with every fiber of my being.
