Update on Things!

Hello Everyone,

So, while I wait for my rice to cook, I figured I'd update you on what's going to happen around these parts over the fall/winter/spring :)

Quick Reactions
Will still happen on Thursday nights after the episode airs.

Rewatches
I've got the S11 DVDs on my Amazon Wishlist. I'll probably wait until after my birthday to buy them, JUST IN CASE. So, rewatches will start happening sometime in early-mid October. I don't know how quick I'll be able to do them, but I'll be aiming for at least once per week, so that, at the very least, I'll be done by the spring.

Random Other Posts
If there are other types of posts of mine that you like and want to see more of, let me know.

If Clothes Could Talk
I'll be updating my personal files for S11 as I go through the rewatch, but I won't be doing the site until I'm done the rewatch. So, that will also probably happen in early-late spring.

Fic
I've started to write another (and probably final) instalment of the Demented'verse. I'm not sure when I'll start posting it. Mayhaps, not until early 2017, but it all depends on how fast I write it, of course. I also haven't decided if I'll do the weekly installment method of posting (which tends to be more fun, because people comment more) or if I'll write it all and post it in one fell swoop. Again, it probably depends how fast I write it.

I still want to write a little bit more in the Men of Legend 'verse, but that's on hold, since my mind is rather taken over by the demented'verse at the moment.

I kinda want to write Stranger Things OT3 fic too, just because there isn't enough of it on the internet to satisfy me... but, I'm going to be honest and admit that writing romantic stuff is not my strong suit, even though I enjoy reading it. So, I'll probably leave it to the professionals.

Fantasy Novel
Ugh, I'm sort of at the bottom of a pit with this one. I'm so enthusiastic about all the ideas that I want to cram in there, and how absolutely awesome I think it is... yet, when I try to put it on paper, it's comes out looking like garbage... discouraging garbage. So, yeah, I've been using my "original fic" writing time to write fanfic instead lately.

Work
I have two jobs! Now, mind you, I've had two jobs for the past year - but now I have a different two jobs. I "retired" from my old secondary part-time job last week (it was a mornings/evenings/weekends type job, and I REALLY missed having my weekends...and mornings) also, it involved a lot of driving and didn't pay all that great considering how much time it took up. The new secondary part-time job has a better hourly rate and it's work-from-home, so that's pretty convenient. It DOES mean that between my two part-time jobs, I will basically have full-time-job hours. So... that's another factor that will affect how quick I am to get rewatches done and fanfic written.

But, this is good, because it means I maybe can afford to live? Also, when one job is slow (ie: not giving me many hours), I'll have a second job that probably won't be.

Travel
I want to travel some place in 2017. I haven't been on a real vacation vacation since... 2010, arguably, and even that was just a week in Germany, sleeping on my friend's couch, and not doing much else because I was poor. So... if people have suggestions of where I should go, let me know. I like affordable vacations in non-tropical locations, because tropical locations are a)too hot, b)too full of scary bugs, and c)often just involve lounging by pools and that's boring... I like wandering cities and going to museums. The last vacation I took where I got to wander cities and go to museums was in 2009, when I went to China and Singapore. Anyway, if any one lives somewhere that's not North America, and wants to let me sleep on their couch at some point, let me know... or if you just have a recommendation for a really cool place to go.

Yay for the new Job!! That is AWESOME!!

For travel I would recommend Ireland and Scotland. I have been to both and they are both beautiful and full of history. AND who can say no to a really good scotch and men in Kilts???? ;D Unfortunately I live in neither places but I can recommend some nice BNB's pretty cheap!!

And like I said in Vancouver at the con I love your writing posts. I am a closet writer and am about 1/2 way through a multi-chapter fic for SPN but as of right now to chicken to post it! LOL!

Keep your chin up with your own fantasy novel (my usual favorite reading). Pulling for you!

Ooo, B&B recommendations for Ireland and Scotland would be most welcome. :) They're beautiful countries and I'd love to visit! Also, I think flights aren't that bad, depending on the time of year, so they're definitely in the running.

I'll keep possible future writing posts in mind!

Thanks for the encouragement on the fantasy novel. I'm determined to finish it eventually, so, I'll figure out some way to get over this hump... and when I do, I'll do a writing post about it. ;)

Good luck on your own writing! Don't be afraid to post! :)

Yay for 2 jobs!!!! :D

Sadly, I can't recommend any travel spots. I've only traveled the US (rather extensively) and dipped my toe in Canada and once in Mexico. I am envious that you've been to China and Singapore though.

Yes, I've been very fortunate when it comes to traveling... which is probably why I'm itching to go traveling again... you know, once you get a taste, it's hard to stay away.

Come to London! I can put you up! Though... hmm, 2017 and I might have moved to Glasgow. In which case, come to Glasgow! :D

You could live in a house in the middle of nowhere and I'd probably still take you up on that offer. ;)

When are you moving to Glasgow?! I've been there once before, but only passing through with a couple hours to spare by the train station, so I never did see much of the city.

Well, I'm not sure. I've found a masters course that I want to do, but it's a little money dependent. I mean, I can apply for it to be fully funded, but I don't want to rely on that. On the other hand, my flatmate will be moving out and her sister and her boyfriend moving in sometime in September (I think) and my flatmate moving to Vienna. So I reckon, whatever happens, I'll be moving out of my current place sometime late next summer. Hopefully to Glasgow, maybe to another part of London, maybe even somewhere else entirely.

Cool! Well, I hope you get the funding - or at least find a good option financially, no matter what you do. :)

Thank you! So do I. Well, here's to hoping. And being vaguely organised. :P

If you want a city to wander and museums to enter, Washington DC is a great place. Full of museums. If you would rather go across the pond, well, there is always Paris. I've been to Amsterdam. That is a wonderful city. I adored that city. Great place to wander around in and there are some pretty good museums. In one of them there are some very famous paintings from some very famous painters. I would LOVE to be able to go back to Amsterdam. Holland is a great country too. Get on a bike, it is mostly flatland and you can go lots of places. Plus, the train system is pretty good.
