Hello! *Waves* - A fiend with magical bunny-like powers

Hello! *Waves*
Hi!!!! Wow, it’s been an embarrassingly long time since I last posted. So instead of trying to sum up everything in my life, I thought I should post so people know I’m still alive and around.

Just a couple of updates:

  • I finished my degree and graduated! I am have a Masters of Information Studies – I'm a librarian! Now, if only a library would hire me. I am applying for lots of jobs so something has to come up soon… right?


  • While I look for work, I’m staying with the girlfriend down in State College. It’s nice to be with Camisha!! We’re also talking about future plans, such as having a family, which makes me VERY happy!


  • I haven’t been doing much writing, unless you count all the essays and assignments I wrote during the year, and all the job applications I’m working on now. I hope to do some writing again soon, especially since I do have fic ideas and am part way through a Sulu/Chekov fic.


  • I’ve still been quietly reading fic. Since there hasn’t been much Sulu/Chekov lately, I randomly have been reading in the Harry Potter fandom, especially Albus/Scorpious. Also, I’m intrigued by Erik/Charles from the newest X:Men movie. Does anyone have any recs?


  • I am SO EXCITED for the final Harry Potter movie!!!


Well, that’s it for now! My hope is that by posting a short post, it’ll inspire me to post more often!!

Yay, congratulations on graduating! I graduated from my own Master's program last month, and have been looking for work and planning my move, and I am doing all right! I am also super excited to hear that you're writing C/S, and I look forward to the activity in the community (now to convince myself to get back on the ball).

Aw, thanks! And congratulations to you too!! That's awesome! I wish you luck looking for work and for your move. I'm also going to move (but the end of the summer) so am not doing much yet!

Oh yay, I'm happy to hear you're excited about the Chekov/Sulu writing. I suspect that the minimal posting of late to that comm isn't helping any of us write, but knowing you're excited is helpful! ♥

In conclusion, *smishes you*

Thanks!!! It's great to be done and wonderful to be here with Camisha. Things are still up in the air because of me not having a job (although I keep reminding myself it hasn't been that long and I am applying for lots), but we are talking about future baby possibilities!!

Oh cool, that's funny that we're both reading in HP! What are you reading? Unless you don't want to share!

Oh yes, I saw that you are doing True Blood recaps! I plan to read the ones for the 1st and 2nd seasons because those are the ones I've seen and I suspect you have some funny things to say about them!!

Thanks! *hugs*

Oooh, thanks for your delicious links! I need to remember I have a delicious and actually save my favourite fics there! Thanks for the Al/Scorpius list, I think I've also found that list and read the fics off it but it won't hurt to double check!

I've actually had some thoughts about writing an Al/Scorpius fic but need to actually just start writing again!

The film looks really good! :D

As well as can be expected! Heh. I actually have a health post on my lj from some 'stuff' that happened in May. But, i'm good. :)
cordelianne From: cordelianne Date: June 30th, 2011 09:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
I am glad that you are good now, although that sounds like quite the ordeal! Man, not fun at all. *hugs*
tabaqui From: tabaqui Date: June 30th, 2011 09:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
It wasn't fun! Ah well. Rather all that then to be dead, heh. Thanks for the good vibes. :)

Congratulations on graduating and qualifying as a librarian. Lots of luck with the job hunting.

Thanks so much! Luck is very much appreciated. :D

Congrats on the Graduation! I'm in the same boat with finding work. UGH. I know there are lots of librarian jobs available, but most are outside of my city and I can't get there because I can't drive. Maybe we'll have better luck at the end of the summer when all the students go back to school...

Oh, did you try the Toronto Public Library? I know there were some openings there when I was first looking in April, and I thought about you...
cordelianne From: cordelianne Date: July 3rd, 2011 04:47 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks!!! Congratulations on your graduation!

Ahh, yes, the job thing is tricky. I have a broad area that I'm looking in but there's a lot of competition. Aw, that's sweet that you thought of me for the TPL openings. I have applied there but apparently they don't like grads from my programme - which is silly since we're in the same city. Something about ours being too theoretical.

Good luck on the job hunt! :D

Congratulations on graduating! Wonderful! (If I were up to icon making, I would make you a new one!)

It's lovely to hear that you're getting time to spend with Camisha. And family plans, wow, how exciting!

Things are ticking along much the same as ever for me. I'm writing reasonable amounts - as ever, not as much as I'd like, but more than I thought I could given time constraints etc. - and not keeping up at all with SPN output. (Seriously, I will have stories to read for YEARS after the show ends!) I'm not in any other fandoms at the moment, but TV-wise we're into True Blood, Castle, and Game of Thrones (I was dubious, still am a little, but I can't stop watching and my husband really likes it.)
cordelianne From: cordelianne Date: July 7th, 2011 04:51 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks!!! I'm thrilled to be done - and still feel that my Librarian in training icons are applicable!

I am excited about starting to make family plans!!

That's exciting that you are writing a reasonable amount - I am glad that you have great fandom inspiration!

Oooh, I'm really loving Castle right now, I thought this most recent season was especially good. heee, I love your description of your feelings about Game of Thrones. I think it would be fun to check out some time.

*hugs*

Yay you! I'm glad you're doing so well, and *crossed fingers* for a job position soon for you.
cordelianne From: cordelianne Date: July 7th, 2011 04:52 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks so much!!! I definitely appreciate the best wishes for the job. :D

I could swear that I saw you from afar. Church St. on Tuesday. Possible?
cordelianne From: cordelianne Date: July 9th, 2011 08:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hmm, I am in town but I think I was far in the west end on Tuesday or at my place. So probably not me. :D
