Why do I keep getting in fights with people online? LOL.

So, the express summer term is nearly over. All I have left to do is an eight page essay, online portfolio, and writing project -- and then I'm all done until the end of August. I'm a little nervous, contemplating this much free time in my schedule. I usually need something to occupy my time so I don't drive myself nuts.

So maybe I'll finish watching the TV shows I've put off watching these last couple of months. I'm planning on finishing up an original story so I have something to show my writing workshop professor when we meet up again in the fall. :)

I'm pretty excited about putting together a portfolio. I've never done it before and my professor tells me that it's an excellent idea if you're considering grad school (which I am). It sounds like fun.

Guess that's me. It's been 3 months so I thought I'd show my face. Otherwise, internet society might get the idea that I was abducted by aliens or something. I wish I had more to show for my absence, like a long story or a whole mess of icons or something, but unfortunately, I have nothing to offer of that kind. My fanfiction is pretty broke right now, so I've been resting up and focusing on coursework. You guys know that I'm in university. I opted to do the express summer session, so I'm not busy per se but there's still work I have to do every day. You may know that I dropped out of the SGA Reversebang. Aww, the first time in three years I had to drop out but with the college situation, my mom's birthday being last month, and my broken fanfiction, I thought it would be best to withdraw rather than turning in a crappy fic. That makes it sound like I think my regular fics are fantastic -- not so!

I've been doing a lot of coursework by day and marathoning The Wire by night. I finished one semester, started another, and finished watching The Wire. Oh, and Orphan Black came back on so that was fun, too.

I'm pretty enamored with Omar Little right now. He's so awesome. I know Omar is everyone's favorite but I think I probably watch the show wrong, because I'm lukewarm about the cops (McNulty -- yawn, Bunk -- 'kay) and I'm waaaay more interested in the dealers (Stringer Bell, Bodie, Michael Lee, Snoop and Chris) and the kids from seasons 4-5 (poor Dukie and Michael and Randy). I'm probably watching Orphan Black wrong, too, because my favorite isn't Cosima (I don't know what's wrong with me), it's Sarah. And I hate, hate, hate Sarah/Paul but so far, I'm pretty good on Sarah/Cal (and Felix/Morgue dude -- who knew Felix cared that much, huh? He was so nervous when he was getting dressed for their date).

What about McShep? I'm wearing my McKay & Sheppard shirt right now as I write this. I haven't forgotten them. I love them and their dorky love. I'll get back to them (soon, probably) but for now, I'm expanding my fictional horizons a bit.

So I might as well sign up for SGA Secret Santa, right? Or should I? I could write some fic by the 10th, right? Man, it's a constant battle against my lack of motivationnnnnnnn... Ha, I think.. But seriously.

If you sent me an e-mail and I didn't reply, it's because I haven't checked my e-mail in a while. Then again, it might not have been that long.

So I volunteered to rec SGA fanart for [community profile] fanart_recs during the month of September. The mod suggested somewhere between four and eight recs spread out throughout the month. So I started digging through my favorites on Deviantart and the fanart folders I have on my computer. There's just too much great stuff out there.

Everybody knows that McShep is my darling pairing, so it's a given I'll rec some McShep fanart, but I do want to recommend some of the beautiful non-McShep art I've seen and bookmarked or saved over the years. I'm also thinking about whether to rec traditional or digital art. And if I should go with well-known favorites or rec more recent or lesser known work.

I don't know, I do love recs. I got into this fandom through rec lists and I think they're invaluable, especially to new fans. :)

I'm now halfway through my second-to-last McShep Match fic but it's so good, I'm doing everything I can to prolong it. Ughhhh, feelings do not make sense. Nix that, finished excellent fic, only one left! It's both joy-inducing and sad at the same time. :)

All done!
