Update... from Cordelianne?!
Hello all! It's been waaaaaaaaaay too long since I've posted here! I decided the only way to fix this is just to dive back in. I have been keeping on with your posts, but have been kinda lurky (I'm sorry!).

Updates on the life of Cordelianne:

  • I finally have a job! In my field! I'm working as a part-time Librarian in the Children's Department at a public library (my ideal library job, well, maybe except for the low pay and minimal hours!). I admit that the lengthy job search proved often depressing, frustrating, and stressful. However, it wasn't all bad....

  • Since the summer, Camisha and I have basically been living together! Things are going really well and we're very happy. We're in State College together (where Camisha's at Penn State finishing her PhD), and my job is at the local public library. The lovely Camisha deserves much credit because during my search for work, she was kindly supporting me. And in more good news...

  • We have started taking steps towards me getting pregnant. We're still in the preparation process but I can assure people I will post any good news related to this!

  • I am really missing my friends and family back in Toronto. I am doing a pretty good job of keeping in touch via email and Skype. But I still really miss them. I am getting to know more people in State College, though, which is nice.

  • I continue to be a pop culture and TV fiend, and am watching too much TV (I can't keep up with it all!). I'm loving The Good Wife, Community, The Vampire Diaries, Raising Hope, The Middle, Happy Endings, Parks and Recreation, Cougar Town, Sherlock and probably a zillion other shows I've forgotten!

  • I've been seeing some movies I've loved: The Artist, This Means War, Pariah. I'm looking forward to The Hunger Games, The Avengers and wish that the new Star Trek was coming out this year.

  • I am still, very slowly (in stops and starts) working on my Sulu/Chekov high school AU that I started an embarrassingly long time ago. But I have so much written, I must finish!

  • Now that I'm done school I'm reading a lot more, especially lots of kids' lit. I'm really enjoying the kid adventure series, The 39 Clues, as well as adult fare like Tina Fey's Bossypants, and The Orphan Master's Son.

That's it for now! *hugs*

Thank you! Yes, it's such a lovely library! I'm very impressed by it. And I recall that you're from State College so you definitely know about the library. :)

Ah, it's lovely to see you! I haven't been around here much either, but I do lurk occasionally and lo and behold, a post from you pops up just as I check in! Fate.

I am really glad to hear that things are going well for you, and Camisha, and you-and-Camisha. :) Congratulations on landing your ideal job. Hopefully it will turn into better hours at some point?

(Elder Son and I have read The Hunger Games trilogy, but frankly, neither of us are too keen on seeing the movie because we scare easily and there are some scenes I don't think I want to see rendered in CGI! They're bad enough in my imagination...)

What excellent timing! It's nice to see you too!

It's so lovely to actually be in the same place together - such a nice change! Yeah, in terms of the job, it's definitely entry level type but at least it's getting me professional experience I need for future jobs (plus I love the library and my co-workers). I have already had some opportunities to pick up more hours to that's been nice.

You raise a good point about not wanting to see certain scenes from the book on screen (especially that final standoff - horrifying!). I am still excited about the movie, but we'll see after how I feel!

*hugs*

Hi there! :D So lovely to see you around! I saw you pop up on my engagement post and was all "OMG! She's still here! YAY!" (but sucked at responding to all my lovely comments /o\)

That is so wonderful that you finally found a job you love. I hope that it will also open doors to more full-time or better-paying employment as well. Yay for jobs! And I'm so pleased to hear that finally living together is so lovely. After all that long distance, you two so deserve it and I'm all awash with joy for you both. And so many good wishes and good thoughts and good hopes to you on your pregnancy process.

I AM SO EXCITED FOR AVENGERS! And also desperately wish that Star Trek XII was out this summer, alas. :( But I would make do with just a Cordelianne Sulu/Chekov fanfic!!!! I am so excited that you've been working on something and trust me that I'll be right there to devour it as soon as you finish! :) :) :) *cheers you on selfishly*
cordelianne From: cordelianne Date: March 20th, 2012 08:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aw, I'm glad you were happy to see me. :) The wonderful news of your engagement actually got me out of lurk mode. hee, don't worry about not responding, I've generally failed at commenting lately.

Thanks! I'm very happy about the job. I love the library and my co-workers. It's definitely a good foot in the door kind of job. And there's already been opportunities to get more hours, which has been nice. Thanks for the good wishes about the relationship and pregnancy process! Much appreciated.

heee, we share movie excitement! Awwwww, that is so sweet of you! I really need to get working on the fic. I accept your cheers and am happy for them because I need all the cheering on I can get! :D

*hugs*

Well done on getting the job. I'm still working towards my degree and trying not to focus too much on the library cutbacks.

I'm watching tons of shows too and definitely enjoying The Vampire Diaries and Community. Vampire Diaries continues to have amazing twists after all this time.
cordelianne From: cordelianne Date: May 9th, 2012 08:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ooops, sorry for my late reply. I think the comment notification got lost in my inbox. I hope your degree is going well. *sends positive school finishing vibes* Ugh, yes library cutbacks are scary.

Aw, yeah, I'm glad you share the Vampire Diaries love! Great icon, btw!
samueljames From: samueljames Date: May 9th, 2012 08:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks, hope those vibes convert into assignment inspiration. Have decided to speed things up degree wise by doing two modules together in September. Just have to keep hoping that libraries will always be needed. I did six weeks at our local one and it was often quite busy, they had courses going on and people coming in to use the computers in addition to normal lending.

Thanks re Damon. He's very pretty.
cordelianne From: cordelianne Date: May 9th, 2012 08:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, elusive assignment inspiration, I know it well! I hope the vibes help with that! Ooh, I hope that the 2 modules go well.

I believe that libraries will always be needed. Ours here is normally really busy. I think the people who want to cut libraries never use them
