The reveals have been pushed back again, understandably so (though I did spend the last two days feverishly working on a fic, had it beta'd, etc. for nothing). But it does mean there's time to drop me well wishes, fic, art, or whatever in my stocking, if you feel so inclined! I am kind of impatient for my fics to be revealed lol. Not because I think they're just that good, but because then I can stop thinking about them~

I have had a persistent cough for about a week now. My mother has wondered if perhaps I've got bronchitis again - I hope not. I've got not time to be sick! I'm getting really tired of it, though.

ETA: I also changed my dreamwidth header. It doesn't look as nice as I pictured in my head, but I kept running into problems, so it is what it is now. I spent forever taking screencaps, coloring them, etc. that when  started to have problems resizing the images to fit - and trying to make them roughly the same size - I went GOOD ENOUGH.

I was taking screencaps and this little moment just hit me. They stare at each other for so long and then look away at the same time. It just screams mutual pining and awkwardness. I love it :)

logans_girl2001 is hosting a Pride Day every Monday, where you comment on her post and talk about something that made you happy or feel proud that week. It's a great way to share some positivity :)

I'm very proud of myself for this :D

I really need to get on making that sticky post so I can start encouraging myself to write every day...

My New Year's Resolution is two-fold, the first of which - be more positive - is new. It's going to be a difficult one, since my family is always running into financial woes. The second is the same as last year: write more than the previous year. I signed up formini_wrimoin November and it really helped keep me writing. I'm thinking of making a sticky-post to keep track of my daily word count - I'll comment each day with how much I wrote. It won't always be more than 0, but hopefully I won't go days without writing.

One positive of 2016 is my success at writing more. In 2015 I wrote 6,721 words total for the year. In 2016 I wrote 45,397. I'm really proud of myself for that, even if I know some people who could write that in one story alone, lol. Hopefully I'll fill my goal of writing even more than 45k! I have tons of ideas, it's just the hard part: actually writing them.

Hey guys! I signed up for fandom-stocking - you can find my post here. There's no pressure to post a ficlet or picspam or anything at all; you don't even have to wish me well :) Just putting this out here.

squidgiepdx has a list of some participants that might be familiar to you good people~

Things are really taking off at work. 'Tis the season, and all that. I'm always drained by Saturday night, and two days doesn't seem like enough to recover. I work Christmas Eve, 9am to 6pm (when the store closes). My boss said she was scheduling a bunch of people to work 7-4, so at least I'll have help.

I finished Stranger Things, which was amazing. It's also resulted in my first ot3 - Jonathan/Nancy/Steve. Most of the fic for them is kind of same-y though, so I haven't read everything (not that there's much to read). I loved watching the kids on the show, but not enough to seek out fic for them. Joyce/Hopper tends to be a background pairing, so I haven't really read anything for them either. I've been looking for something to replace ST to watch on my own and I've started Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, which is entirely the fault of squidgiepdx! There are only 7 episodes, so it shouldn't take me too long to finish, and then I think I'll watch The Expanse.

fandom_stocking has gone live, and I'm hoping to do fills for at least three people (tarlanx, squidgiepdx, and goddess47). Ideally, I'd like to do something for all the McShep shippers, but given how slow at writing I am and the way my ideas tend to get out of control...plus, I want to do something for Winter Magic. I have a teeth-rottingly sweet fic idea that I can hopefully do justice for that. I'm considering signing up for my own stocking (I have two days left to decide), but I worry about giving back as much as I receive. I'm already 3k into a fill for tarlanx, so I am hopeful about getting things done.

sgamadison is doing a December Love Meme over on her journal. Stop by and check it out - it's inspiring some great fandom love :)

I got into a fight with some family members on facebook about the 2016 presidential election. My aunt called my words "hateful", which I found darkly amusing, considering the crap Trump has said and gotten away with. My aunt is rich, white, and married. She has little to worry about, with him. These fights have made me very nervous about Christmas, however. I doubt they'll say anything, as it'll be a holiday and they'll want it to be a nice one, but they can be passive aggressive or ignore me completely...I guess we'll see.

I have a 6 page paper due on Wednesday I have no motivation to work on. And next time I get some spare money, I'm getting my nose pierced.

That's it for updates *shrug*
