But yeah. I'm working now after two years of looking and not looking. Friend of mine scored me a job at a Sam's Club. Doing carts again, which wouldn't be my first choice, but it's work, which I'm very grateful for. (And a little more exercise on top of my normal regime doesn't hurt.) I was told after six months or so, I'll have an opportunity to move on up to a better position. I don't know how long I'll be working there, but I'll stay as long as I can while working on my Master's online.
So, with juggling work and school, I've been writing very little. I do have the fourth chapter of my PoR novelization nearly finished, though, so I'll be uploading it on FF pretty soon. :) That also reminds of me of some changes I made on my FF account. I'm no longer known as ewev. My new (and hopefully permanent) pen name is Truth and Temper. I just like it a lot more than the one I went by for... well, a while. Yeah.
Anything else...? Um, nope, I think that's it. Hope you guys are doing well, and I'll do my best to not forget this site. (And FF, for that matter.) ^^

I've done a little writing during my break; I got an FE13 one-shot nearly finished. Once I send it to my pal bkamiro for beta reading, I'll upload it and pimp it out here and on the Circle. After all that business is done with, I'll get back to my PoR novelization. ^^
Anything else I've been up to... Oh, finished Tales of the Abyss! I ended up putting in a ton of hours on it, but I guess that's proof that I really enjoyed the game. Gameplay is great, story is awesome (pretty dark later on, but that made it even better in my mind), and the cast itself is charming as all hell. 'Nuff said, I guess. Really makes me want to play the other titles.
So, that's all I've got to say for now. Hope you're all been doing well and enjoying your summer! :D
Been a while since I updated here. Yeah.
My laptop is crapping out on me and won't Internet for me. Again. So, same case with what happened back in the spring. I'll be more active on my brother's Dell, though, as the semester ended around two weeks ago (I'm already losing track of the time). Here's an update while I try to get this fixed. Again.
I think that's about all I've been up to lately. I'm just hoping I'll be somewhat productive this summer. Hope you guys enjoy your summer! Be back soon. Maybe. Hopefully.
Yep, after around a month of restricted access, I'm back! Well, I've been back for a little over a week, so yeah. Guess I'll give a little update.
( cuttttCollapse )
So, that's all I've been up to. I'll post another entry when the third chapter of my novelization is uploaded on FF. Waiting on my pal darkeclipse45 to take a look at it, but I'm in no rush and told him to take his time.
Glad to be back and hope you're all doing well!

That said, I'm cutting back. The only thing I'm letting myself do online with the family comp is classwork. That's it. I won't be here and I won't be on FF. I don't know how long I'll be gone, but hopefully not very, as I have a friend who lives an hour away; he should be able to fix it in person (tried doing this via phone, but it failed). Just gotta wait on him.
As for writing, I'm still able to use my laptop to work on my novelization. I've written very little since I uploaded the second chapter, though.
So, I'll talk to you guys... whenever. Days, weeks, I dunno. But until then, take care.

Special thanks go to my friend darkeclipse45 for beta reading. Now note time, I guess, though I don't think there is all that much I can say.

Okay. Back to the subject.
( Dat cut!Collapse )
I just wanted to let my flist know what's new. ^^ Feels great writing again. I'm already working on the second chapter, so hopefully there won't be extended "bumps" as long as this one has been. (It's been eleven months. Mother of god...)
Until next entry, then!

Okay. Going back to celebrating with the family now. (:

Truth is that I let everyone know about it three weeks before classes started (Aug. 22nd). The owner/manager/head-honcho yelled at me yesterday. The gist of it:
"You change your availability times so quickly again and I will make sure that you get fired!"
I received a call this morning, and needless to say, it made my day.
"You know what, I'm not risking you doing this again. You're fired."
"You've just made a person extremely happy. You have done nothing but treating me like trash. Also, you weren't even offering to schedule my shifts around the classes I am taking this semester. I've nothing else to say." *hangs up*
I am so freaking happy right now. To be honest, I've been miserable when working at that McShitty, starting the first day working at that location (July, I wanna say). I've been disrespected, written up for things I've never done and I've been yelled at for far too long.
While I've lost my source of income, I still have hundreds (nearly a thousand) saved up form working there. It should be able to hold me off until I can get a job closer to campus.
As for writing, I hope I can get some more ideas going through my head this semester, as I was only able to get two classes for the Fall. (The day I could enroll for classes my ex-boss called me to work a 10 hour shift. Good grief.)
I hope I can find a new job very soon - I've started applying at several places this morning. The first place I ever worked at will be hiring for seasonal positions gain and I will be sure to take advantage of that. We'll just have to see what happens. All I know for sure is that I no longer have to be such a bitter person. I'm gone from a negative environment for the rest of my life.
I think that's it. Yep.

What if Ross and Vanessa had supports in Sacred Stones? This is what I think would happen.
Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.
I'm feeling pretty good about what I've done so far. There will be four chapters in total. I will update when I've the time.
Well, now I've plenty of stuff to catch up on. Huzzah.
