So I'm doing X-Men Big Bang, and today was artist-claim day, and SOMEONE ACTUALLY WANTED MY STORY. More shocking, two people wanted to do my story. It was their first pick! (I feel kinda bad for the second person. I'm just like that.)
Also I realized today that I had added yet another Joan to my hero list. In case you don't know, all my heroes (well, heroines, whatever) are named Joan. Not even kidding.
There's Joan of Arc, my sort-of patron saint.
My grandma Joan, who I do not have an online picture of, so have another one of Joan of Arc (as played by Milla Jovovich).
Joan Benoit Samuelson, winner of the first Olympic Marathon for Women (AND a Mainer)!
Joan Jett, badass rock star.
Aaaaand Joan Holloway, who I really just want to BE. And who has become my style icon.
I SHIP SO MANY THINGS AFTER THE FINALE
I WANT MARNIE/ANTONIA AFTERLIFE FIC BECAUSE I MEAN SERIOUSLY
I SHIP HOLLY/TARA

I've applied to innumerable jobs, had 2 interviews, and been rejected by 2 (oddly enough not the same two). Alas it is looking more and more like I will have to be washing dishes this year. Which I would really really prefer to avoid.
I've had to move my class schedule around. I am now taking Victorian Sexualities, Women and Gender in Early Modern Europe, Art History: Western History, and Western Classics: Homer to Dante. I've only gotten to the first two. I've dropped $200 on the art history text, though, so hopefully I don't fail that class. (I needed to replace something and figured I should get an arts credit out of the whole deal). I understand it's mostly memorization.
I go back to school tomorrow, yay!
I haven't finished packing, so I should do that.
I'm a little nervous about how a friend of mine is liking Smith (it's her first year! And I want the school to make a good impression! I am totally a mother hen, it's so bad).
And I've "borrowed" my family's copies of the A-Team and LOTR. The entire trilogy.
COME AT ME, WORLD.
(In other news, I'm 1500 words into my X-Men Big Bang fic, which is not Erik/Charles. Sorry! Maybe someone will read it anyway.)
