Writing

Writing is so strange to me. I mean writing as in stories, not as in just the action of picking up a pen and making marks on a sheet of paper.

With writing there's not an immediate tangible result. You can sit down with a notebook or a laptop and write for hours and come out with sixty words or sixty pages, but the result is intangible, changeable, untouchable.

With the drawing or painting, your work is readily apparent. You have a canvas, a portrait, a result almost as soon as you start. With photography, you have a picture. With dance, a visible, physical change in body posture. With music, an audible production, no matter how much it sounds like a suffocating cat. Each of these produces an immediate reaction for an observer.

With writing, though, you work and you work and you put down those words, one after another, page after page, until all of a sudden, you're holding a whole world. But that world means nothing to anyone else on the planet until they open the first page, be it physically or digitally, and start reading.

2011: A year in review

I keep saying that 2011 was a shittastic year. It really wasn't, though, now that I've thought about it a bit. It was just exhausting

New Year's Eve 2010: Fell on wet pavement (totally sober) and busted my butt. Ow.


2011 was a doozy...Collapse )


So, yeah, 2011 was a whirlwind year. I rang in 2012 with part of a bottle of wine, some NaNo friends in a chatroom, and just generally relaxing.

I hope your year is a good one! Be safe, be happy, be kind, and do something new.

(BTW, I just saw the new Sherlock Holmes movie, and it BLEW MY MIND.)

Why is the LJ app tropical?

Better question: why does autocorrect turn Lj into Ljubljana?

These are the things I ponder while waiting on the washing machine to finish drowning my clothes so I can bake...errr...dry them. Gotta love laundry mats. My next apartment WILL have a washer and dryer connection. Dammit. And a toilet that doesn't break every other week. The current trick is leaking out of the shut off valve that does into the wall, thus making my bathroom floor a puddle.

I think I've managed to get a hand hold on life for the first time in a long time. I don't feel quite as much like I'm drowning, anyway, so that's something. I've got a roof over my head, a mostly decent job, and a good set of friends.

And I've stopped forgetting how to breathe every time the weather gets bad.

I even finished nanowrimo this year! Yay! I failed miserably last year due to school, but not this year! Now I just have to finish the damn story.

I've also made good headway into Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7. I love the Lego games, they're adorable and fun, even though I frequently get stumped by a game meant for 12 year olds :P

-The last Harry Potter movie premiered
-Talked my way into a job

 Five days ago, I walked across the stage to formally accept my Master's degree.

One hundred and five days ago, I survived a tornado.

I am officially a children's librarian, and I'm loving it. I get to work with patrons, do really fun programs (I have a PlayDoh one coming up), and read lots of really awesome books and call it "research." I just finished one called Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly that was really interesting and I can't wait to read the sequel. 

For the first time since my freshman year of college, I'm living in the same place for the second year in a row. Not having to move was AMAZING, especially since the heat index was around 110 the weekend I was supposed to move. And I was supposed to be moving back home. With my mother. After five years of being on my own. Uhhhh.... no. So yay, job! Yay, graduation! Yay for having a job doing something I want to do and actually enjoy most of the time! 

Umm... yeah, so that's where I am in my life. Hello!

(Find me on tumblr! knottahooker.tumblr.com)

Today was rough

Well, things have been rough for a couple of weeks now. We had the tornado on April 27th and then graduation (even though the ceremony itself is postponed until August) on May 7th. So things have been strange and weird and broken for a couple of weeks, and I'm still working through everything. 

Cut for those who don't want to read about tornado aftermathCollapse )

Ways to help

 There were massive tornadoes throughout the Southeast on Wednesday. I was in Tuscaloosa during the storms, and the city is suffering badly. People are without homes or cars and businesses are destroyed. I am fine, my apartment is fine, although the surrounding neighborhoods in my area are unrecognizable. People in the library school have been compiling ways to help:

http://legislativebarbie.blogspot.com/2011/04/tuscaloosa-tornado-relief-efforts.html

http://bama-slis.libguides.com/helpBama

There are others around, including this one to help find people who are missing: http://www.tuscaloosanews.com/article/20110428/MULTIMEDIA/110429675

A simple way to help is to text FOOD to 27722 to donate $10 to the West Alabama Foodbank, which is helping to feed people without food from the tornadoes.

Feel free to PM or email me at ren_shuten at yahoo dot com if you have any other information or if you need something. I'll help however I can.

ETA: There is also an Acts of Kindness fund that's been set up: https://www.ua.edu/advancement/giving/donate/?division=2&account=349

And, although I'm sure some of this is repeat information, more ways to help:
http://alabamapossible.org/2011/04/tornado-relief-how-you-can-help/

People who want to volunteer can go to St. Matthias church at 2310 Skyland Blvd to get on a roster. I know people tend to be leery of churches, but volunteering without a group is hard and it's a way in. What's really needed is water and clothing, but any little bit will help.

ETA 2: More ways to help: http://mashable.com/2011/04/30/seven-ways-to-help-tornado-victims/

Tornadoes

 I'm fine! There were lots of tornadoes in my city yesterday. My apartment and car are undamaged, but the apartment next to mine has a tree through its roof and there's a lot of damage in Tuscaloosa. There are many people without power and there are problems with the water, or so I have heard. I'm at my mom's house now. Any donations will be appreciated.

Mischief Managed

Hello! Still there, are you? 

Well, I'm sorry I haven't been around. I've been trying to deal with school and interning and job searching. Anyone know of any library jobs out there? Drop me a line!

Graduation is looming on the horizon, and I'm ready for it. I'm terrified beyond words, but I'm ready. A year ago, I was watching my friends get ready for graduation and I was scared witless and shitless. I'm still scared, but I feel prepared. I've got a good support network, although no job, and I'm ready to jump in with both feet. And I figured I may as well take this attitude with it, because it's going to come whether I'm prepared or not.

I also have plans to get a tattoo to commemorate graduating college. It's something I've been mulling over for a few months now, and I'm still enamored with the idea. It will encapsulate my love of Harry Potter and the last step in my schooling all in one fell swoop. I grew up with Harry, literally. I was ten when I read the first book and I'm 23 now. I read every book, every word, watched every money, caught hell in junior high for wearing t-shirts proclaiming my nerditude, and here I am, 13 years later, waiting on the last movie to come out. I've laughed and cried with these characters, fictional though they may be. 
 
 I'm still hammering out a design for the tattoo in my head and I haven't decided where I want to get it. But I know it's going to be two words.
 
Just two.
 
Mischief managed.
