graduation. and writing stuff.

I graduated. I finally graduated uni. It's done. Now, I wait with baited breath to find out if I passed my classes.


In other news, I have been working on my NaNo 2010 Novel, Hearts of Oak; it has it's own eljay if anyone is interested: petticoatroyal.I also have two new stories in the works, one steampunk and one fantasy. The steampunk one involves a Detective Inspector Lena (Lennie) Oshka who investigates the death of a scientist and ends up having to care for his young, eight year old daughter. I have set up an eljay for it, here: redrusskie. The other is a fantasy story which I am excited about because I haven't written fantasy in a long time. It revolves around Josselyn Eyefalcon who is captured and thrown into gladiator style combat. [I actually forgot the first last name I gave her.] I will be setting up an eljay for it momentarily.

I'm in Ireland, bitches

The house I am staying in is so cute and the couple who own it, who are now on a flight to stay in my parent's house are so so freakin' nice and kinda of adorable little Irish couple. 

I totally passed out after lunch yesterday. I left the house for the airport at 7:00 AM on June 30th and got into Dublin airport around 8:00 AM June 1st. Crazy airplane times, indeed. 

More about travels later. 

Ciao, ciao. 
buy a clue; true blood.


The puppy chillaxing with me on the couch is adorable. Yay! Puppies!

holy cheesemuffins, batman!

Holy cheesemuffins, Batman! The quarter is almost over. I've got four days of school and then finals week. Shnikeys! Also, I had forgotten how much I adore Law and Order: SVU. I recently got a hold of the first four seasons on DVD. The first season is full of such snarky goodness. 

June is going to be full of stuffs. School ends. I am going to see the play Harvey on the 6th, and The Reduced Shakespeare Company on the 13th. My birthday is on the 8th, and I am having a party on the 12th. Carpet is being installed the 1st. Molly is moving in on the 18th. And, my mom and I are going to Ireland on the 29/30th. So this means I have to clean out my entire house and get rid of shit I don't need, so Molly has space. This all makes me uber-excited. 

Right now, I am kind of a sad panda because my cable is out. Someone will be by tomorrow hopefully to fix it.
