omg not dead

Still alive, just busy enough that I haven't made time to post.

Have actually started contacting people at potential colleges for next fall, so that's exciting. Still looking primarily at the Northeast and northern Midwest, but I've been told good things about a school in North Carolina that I'm going to look into. It's a weird process; Mom wants to hold me back, since I'm still not doing great on the mental health front, but I'm still forging ahead because I'll die of boredom if I don't. Hopefully I'll be ready when the time comes, but right now I just want to run screaming into the night.

Classes are really, really boring. I'm totally doing too much work for one of them, but I'm slacking in the other two because I can do the work with my eyes closed. I worry that the lack of intellectual challenge is making me lazy, but considering how maniacal I'm being about American History notes, I'm probably fine. I am looking forward to my final project in that class (pro- and anti-war music during the Vietnam war); considering the vastly differing political stances my classmates have, it should be a rip-roaring good time. :P

This is the last weekend in the box office (thank God), and not only do I have shows Thursday through Sunday, but we've got two shows on Saturday. I'm planning on bringing one of the bagpipe books (World Music final project) and settling in for the long-haul.

I'm hoping to have some fic up tonight. The last "She" drabble is in my fingertips, and once that's typed I can post it and the four others sitting on my hard drive. Then I think I'll start picking at the various other short WsIP until the end of the semester. It's my plan to devote winter break to finishing the novel, but I'm not going to let myself start working on it until after exams. 'Cause I'm responsible like that. /snark

It's looking like I'm definitely going to need it. Schools keep giving me the run-around.

Unfortunately, probably not. How close is Madison to Cincinnati?

And I'm sure Chicago isn't any closer...

Dude, if you want me out there, find me a program. I'm getting kind of pissed off at the folks I'm dealing with right now.

Chicago is about 2/2.5 hours away actually, and better connected by bus.

I'll poke around, I hear Cincinnati isn't that great...Midwest that isn't Chicago isn't really that great =/
