So I'm gonna see about sitting on staff as a copy editor for the Echo next semester.
I'D ALSO LIKE TO SEE WHAT MY OPTIONS ARE AS FAR AS GETTING MY CLASSES SET BUT DOHOHO. Yeah.


Feature is done. Outcome: uncertain, but hey. That's why I'm in a class – to learn. It helps when your teacher is the editor of a major state newspaper; makes the criticism easier to swallow since she knows what she's on about.

Hungry again hmmm...

Early because it's going to be a lllong day. +5 )

Sssso. Class from 11-5, and then a long adventure all the way out to Waterford. GPS, don't fail me now, I need this interview! She seems super-nice, though, so putting aside rush hour traffic, it shouldn't be too bad. I'm trying to not be too concerned right now.

I am all on top of shit right now. Not...all shit, but. I'm ahead/on top of my readings for 4/5 of my classes (no geography book yet), got some ideas for the group project AND possible feature writing. Not that I have to worry about that just yet, but...if I have to do a profile feature, I think I know who I want to cover. There's this woman related to the man who owns a gas station my dad frequents up where he works who was diagnosed with cancer while pregnant...and refused treatment until she had delivered. She's actually cancer-free now, so I think she'd have an interesting story to share, and I'd like to hear her side from it, since all I know of her is from what my dad's said.

I read a really compelling feature in my text about a woman undergoing brain surgery to clip a couple aneurisms and this...growth...on the base of her brain stem that had been scarring her brain and messing with arteries for 57 years and causing constant pain. The reporter must've been in the room for the operation for what he wrote. It was incredible. It's called Mrs. Kelly's Monster-- you can read it here. It's a two-article story, but it's a fast, gripping read.

The man doing the hiring for the student writer job contacted me and told me he'd get to my samples "when I have the chance", so I can almost get myself to stop obsessively checking my e-mail for correspondence. I'm still anxious and excited. I feel like I could do what they want, but because I've never done a writing job and my samples are only student work...I'm not sure. Hopefully it's enough. I want to get a foothold already!

I really want copy editing to be fun. I feel like it could be. Kind of. I mean, I'm not really sure how I'd do with legalities and libel, but that's why I'm learning. I glanced over one of the tests for an internship camp for copy editing (that virtually guarantees a job if completed; it's that prestigious), and it's...not something that's too far out of my range, except for the current events stuff. I have to start paying more attention if it's something I feel like pursuing.

Idk.

It's not uncommon to not know what you really want to do with yourself at 23, but it still feels like I should have a better path already set? Especially when I look around me and have friends/peers already making a bee line towards this or that.

I'm going to try to stop being so scared.

MY FIRST DAY BACK TO COLLEGE: TRAFFIC JAMS. THE END.
noelleno: (LEIJI: ghhhhh)
I was so on top of all my money hoohah today you guys it was pretty great. Everything was taken care of!

Uuuuntil I came home and found the letter from EMU telling me about incomplete financial aid progress. Which, hilariously enough, lists a few due dates for certain forms that are 23 days past at the least, which, y'know. Is fantastic. But I have the forms required now on in my file, so theoretically, all I'll need to do is print those and mail 'em off or something. Theoretically. Hope for the best, expect the worst is the only motto I can take on when dealing with University institutions anymore. It's never easy, it's never stress-free, it's never in my favor. But I won't grind my teeth too hard over it right now until I get underway with it.

Nice of this kind of notice to come up on a Friday. Good Lord.


My patience at work is just not good lately, and this wasn't even a long shift. Tomorrow I'll be sitting in a box from 1 to 8:15, so I better bring like, 8 billion comic books to kill time with or something because Pokémon only works for about an hour before I want to strangle myself and every little digital animal I'm grinding to 50. Hoo, boy. I want my day off!




So technically I already did my original shit for the day (NO EXCEPTIONS), but I'd feel pretty useless just letting the...uh. 4 hours I have awake go to waste. But I don't really know what I want to draw.

Is there any character in particular that interested anyone and wants to see more of? Or maybe...any kind of theme/prompt?

No fandom stuff tonight, sorry. You'll have to suffer my dumb kids sommo'.


OH PS. I have a few new watchers so HELLO TO YOU. If you haven't given me a name/nickname to call you by PLEASE TO BE DOING THAT or I'll be forced to call you..."you".........









i just realized i put my age as 24 on that friending meme...,,.WHY DO I NOT KNOW MY OWN AGE???

It's official. I love this series.

When you have the phrase "A single perfect tear" anywhere in your text? I am bound to like it, if only for that. Good job, G.R.R. Martin. I like you. I will devour the last 300 pages of this book and divebomb a bookstore for the next. :'|

School's done. The tests (except for gender) were awful today, and my GPA's going to look the lamest it's been in a long time. But I'm so over those classes right now that I could see the grades today and not give two shits. Next week, however...Eh. I don't know. I just want to relax; I haven't put myself into full working mode until May 1st. That's a little respite to get my sanity back, draw, and enjoy my birthday. Hell, I got $88 back for selling my schoolbooks, so I might be inclined to indulge and buy me a Disney movie. I want Tarzan.

IN THE MEANTIME...*gnaws on Clash of Kings

DRAW BUILDINGS EVERY DAY NO EXCEPTIONS +1 )


I DID GOOD ON MY MATH TEST I DON'T KNOW HOW.....but I'm getting so frustrated that all I've done is draw damn stupid ugly pointless buildings and not my ocs so I'm gonna. Do that before I get too irritable and self-depreciating over here.
noelleno: (BB: well oh okay)
Every day is its own little rollercoaster, I guess! Or at least today.

(-) woke up later than I would've wanted, due to staying up later than I really should've
(-) didn't get a chance to shower until like 11 and that was annoying!
(+) 275's clear of construction north of 94 so I got to blaze on up that way to Scraft
(-) Mehall wasn't in his office :[
(+) but he WILL BE Thursday! Convenience!
(+) consolation prize: bought a copy of Clash of Kings 8)
(-) rassum frassum MORE CONSTRUCTION ON THE BACKGROADS why can I not have a direction home that's not littered with barrels and dumptrucks
(+++++) got a call during my detour that I'll be having an interview for a BCBSMI internship (NOTE TO SELF: Donna Juarez, 11:30)
(+) Mr. Adler gave me enough info that I can still call like WCCC for some infos on what's goin' on with this film industry stuff here in the state
(-) transitional weather is really brutal on my arthritis
(+) but the redbuds are showing their color already and it's really pretty driving through the park and seeing the purple lining the trees
(-) I just realized I haven't done my application paper due tomorrow aw hell
(+) tomorrow is my last day in religion class and it's the Buddhism test and I hope I can make it werk
(+) NO MEDIA CLASS TOMORROW AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA

I still can't even wrap my head around the fact that like. The last week is next week??/? Uhhh where have I been.
Oh well.

GOD EMU I HATE YOU except registering was so damn easy I guess I can't hate you that hard. But seriously, you know how when you get into a major course of study and you're kind of at the whims of one or two specialized professors AND THEY NEVER WANT TO HAVE A CLASS AT A DECENT HOUR? Yeah. Hate that. So now instead of a 11-9 day like this semester I WILL HAVE A 9-9 DAY.

Ggg.

Y'all playing the home game are watching me lose my damn mind.
Copy Editing.
Noooooooooooo...!


GOD BLACKEST NIGHT 8 COMES OUT THIS WEEK I CAN'T EVEN HANDLE WAITING RIGHT NOW *SCR
noelleno: (DC: another moody atmosphere icon)
Today is bipolar.

It really was divine intervention that I could have a wonderful Wednesday of nothing but good things and not know what my math test score was, because I got a D. It's a miserable-looking grade in a miserable class that I cannot fail, hurr.

Uhh and my knees and hip are throbbing at the moment, but I can't do much about it until I can have the day's meal.

So that's the bad.

But I am getting a call in 15 minutes to talk over a possible summer internship at BCBSM. My mom used her ~connections to get my resume into the right hands; let's hope that it worked, because I. Don't really know. I'm starting to think that having self-confidence is only the setup for defeat, which is silly, but my best surprises come from unexpected things? I don't know.


Stupid math.

...Uh, lol, or I was supposed to get a call 30 minutes ago. Got her voicemail. Hhh.


OH GOOD JOB ELLE ACCIDENTALLY CATCH HER IN A MEETING NICE WORK THAT'LL PUT HER IN A MOOD TO LOOK AT YOU IN A POSITIVE LIGHT I SHOULD'VE JUST NOT CALLED A SECOND TIME AFTER I GOT THE VOICEMAIL...
noelleno: (BLUE: ...kkkayyy..)
I've been walking around all day with that sticky-eyelid prelude-to-illness feeling, and I'd love to do nothing more than freebase vitamin C to prevent it if this wasn't my longass schoolday. One more class. Mildly freaked out about walking to my car! Warm weather = more muggers?? I don't know. Maybe I should, like, check my school's security page for the volunteers who walk you wherever you need to go. I'm such a tool, but at least I won't be the tool potentially attacked? Whatevs.

[livejournal.com profile] rawowner333 I bet you're reading this entry at some point today and let me just say THIS LUNCHROOM IS RONERY. But idk what you've been up to and my phone has no reception in here so OH WELL.

Uhh. Stuff. I don't know. It's always a little strange when people compliment my OCs or ideas; it's not something I can talk about in person, face-to-face, because I get frazzled and mumbly and start to downtalk it without realizing it. But it's just amazing to me that my stupid ideas seem significant to someone other than myself? Especially when I've been told "lol girl nobody cares about your ideas at your age" several times before. 8|a

But it does mean a lot to me, even if I just keysmash or say something stupid about it. I'm just not great at accepting praise?


Buh.


Friendships were discussed in gencomm today. We did an activity and had to list 10 close friends? And I...could barely crack 8? Not without rethinking what it meant to be a "close" friend. And after we discussed the variances on it for people it was easier, but it did make me realize how my friendships work between friends irl, online, and between genders for both. And that maybe I'm just not good at the styles of friendships as most people relate to. Female-wise, at least.

I'm not very good at long talks or deep conversation or being able to come up with something insightful to say. At least, I don't think so. And when someone gives me that kind of support, I don't know how to take it well? "Thank you" never seems enough, because it really isn't.

And even if I don't converse much...it doesn't make time spent around/with/doing something with someone any less valuable. The doing aspect of a friendship can be just as important as the saying. It's a more masculine approach, stereotypically, but everybody does it. I just hope I don't come across as too cold sometimes.


So tell me about what's been going on with you guys. I know I don't comment around as much as I ought to, but if there's something you wanna talk about? Bam. I'll try. I may not have great insight, but I do have funny icons?


I need to stop being so scared of the dark outside. Either that, or I need to make friends here. What the hale.
noelleno: (BB: whywhywhywhywhy)
Of course EMU still has classes today despite the roads looking hideous. Of course.

Screw you, Media class. I be skippin' you and waiting until noon to brave this shiz. Oh nvm you read my mind and teacher cancelled yo' ass, dohoho. But I have no clue what I'm going to do about the night class. The snow's not supposed to stop at all. I can't handle a night drive on 94 in snow. Just can't. But I have a quiz. Ffffffuuuu-
noelleno: (BB: whywhywhywhywhy)
WOW I LOVE WORKING INTO THE WEE HOURS OF THE NIGHT ON A REPORT AND THEN COMING IN THE NEXT DAY TO FIND OUT IT'S DUE ON WEDNESDAY.

AT LEAST THE QUIZ IS OPEN BOOK/INTERNET.

MIGHT DO THOSE PAIRS DRAWINGS

FLOCK OF SEAGULLS STUCK IN MY HEAD;

I don't know how well I did on either my Media quiz or my Religion test. I feel pretty confident about the latter--at least a B? But...then again, it was only 28 questions. So even a couple wrong knocks you down, and there were a couple I just wasn't 100 percent sure on. :\ The next chapter is on Christianity, which I feel better about. After that...pay more attention, Elle.

And woop I got pulled over by a park officer for speeding, but no ticket. So. Yerp. I feel iffy about today.

here's some iffy drawings )
noelleno: (SLAY: hhhhguys../)
