Technique Tuesday: Just write, dammit!

      Comments Off on Technique Tuesday: Just write, dammit!

I really need to learn to take my own advice. I have been struggling with just writing for weeks now. It’s only partially my fault, though. (No, really!) My laptop is on the fritz, so I’m trying not to overuse it while I work on backing up all my files from my external harddrive so I can re-format it for… Read more »

Post Sick and Airy Ed: Undergraduate Episode Completed (new high score)

I’ve been in Post Sick and Airy Ed (my mom’s word for Post-Secondary Education, or University) of some sort for the past 9 years, struggling to get my undergraduate degree. You read that right. 9 friggin years. The Fellowship of the Baccalaureate! Longer and more pedantic, with fewer orcs. It’s finally happened. I applied to graduate today, and I’ll be… Read more »

Oregon is a dangerous place for us — and I’m not talking about dysentery

      Comments Off on Oregon is a dangerous place for us — and I’m not talking about dysentery

      Comments Off on Whatever Wednesday: Banned Books Week and full disclosure about my adolescence

This is cross-posted from katjevanloon.com.  September 24th through October 1st is Banned Books Week. Over the years, many books and writers have been banned or challenged — for political reasons or just some vague feeling of “needing to protect the children”. Until this year, I’d never sought to read a banned book. Then I decided I’d try and find one,… Read more »

Goals, loosely outlined

      Comments Off on Goals, loosely outlined

It’s no longer Wednesday, so I can’t do Whatever Wednesday. Which means I had to come up with some B.S. for Thursday. Not sure why I’m letting this get to me so much. It’s not very important. Anyway. Things I’m Gonna Do (also a song by Rasputina)  Release date for Bellica has been pushed from January 2012 to November 2011,… Read more »
