Hey, all! I've been pretty busy lately. I've been training for my job at the library. Since it's at the college, and I haven't moved into the dorm yet (NEXT WEEK!!) I have to drive an hour and a half to get there xD I feel for people who have crazy commutes EVERY DAY. 's not fun. Takes up like the entire day.
I'm really glad I got this job, because they were hiring early, so the summer is still going on. My training isn't when the campus is busy and full, lol. I've never had a job before, only internships, so this is pretty nervwracking anyway, given my shyness. Yeah. But hopefully it'll start going better.
I've also been doing a lot of cleaning around the house the last couple of weeks. Since it takes a war to get my brother and dad cleaning, and mom has NO TIME to clean, I've been doing a lot of big stuff that needed to be done. Entire closets, every single cabinet in the house, including the kitchen, the pantry... yeah. Lots of fun! >D
In other news, I was able to get my BigBang rough draft up to 12K by the due date! I was up late that night XD. Now let's see if I can actually make it something resembling an actual fic, lol. It needs a lot of editing. XD;
Other fandom news, gulf_aid_now's third auction is now open!
If you don't know, it's a fandom related auction. People offer all kinds of things including fanfic, original fiction, poetry, AMVs, fanmixes, podfics, food, icons, banners, layouts, other graphics, hand-made crafts, fanart, original art, and miscellanious stuff is also accepted. People bid on what's being offered, and the highest bidder pays that amount to a charity that is aiding in the gulf spill.
I'll definitely be offering stuff again, but the second auction ended only a couple weeks ago, so I want to try to get at least one of my fills up before I offer myself again? Lol. And I'm going to try to bid too, especially since now I have a job, but we'll see.
... if anyone offers a ShunUki AMV or fanmix, I may be willing to have their babiez. Yes.
On that note, I mentioned once before I was thinking about trying to set up a similar auction styled thing for in the Bleach fandom. I didn't get much feedback for the idea- so, again, does that sound interesting to anyone? I was thinking today about how a lot of fandoms have some sort of Christmas contest thing, and Bleach doesn't. So I was thinking to maybe combine the two ideas, and do a charity auction this winter, highlighting charities like Make a Wish/ Angel Tree/Toys for Tots, though other general charities would be fine too. Opinions?...
I was thinking maybe the auction could run end of October, so that donations would be going in during November. That might keep it from interfering in other fandom's challenges.
