Goals Update

The goals are taking shape!

1) NaNoWriMo.

I kicked NaNoWriMo's ass and I'm still writing on the story every other day. It's actually continuing pretty easily. All I have to do now is get to a comfortable place to end (because it's an ongoing series, that might be hard) and then do a metric buttload of editing. Still, I feel good about it.

2) Study for and pass the LCDC and LPC exams (and LMFT if I'm living life on Hard Mode).

I mailed off the app for the LCDC today. Gotta start making notecards of the 100-page monstrosity of a study guide.

3) Find a second job.

Had one very good interview, but I came in second. Still actively applying.

4) Lose 25 pounds.

Lost 9 pounds so far.

5) Thesis publication finalization.

This still hasn't happened yet because apparently the lady who agreed to help me with it got a shift in her job responsibilities. It's finals week and no one's doing anything for me over the holidays, so I'm going to take another crack at it in January. All I want is someone to cite me.

Tumblr is no good for text posts, so here's my yearly keyboard mash on LJ. Here are my goals for the next 6 months:

1) NaNoWriMo.
2) Study for and pass the LCDC and LPC exams (and LMFT if I'm living life on Hard Mode).
3) Find a second job.
4) Lose 25 pounds.
5) Thesis publication finalization.

It's Alright If My Clothes Aren't New

"Out of sight, because my heart is true."
-Stevie Wonder

I have a tumblr:, even though I find tumblr generally obnoxious, hipster-y, and unnecessarily nude. It's like deviantart with less flaming and more neck tattoos.

I'm back to playing EverQuest pretty consistently because I'm old and I don't like change.

EQ and LJ have made me realize that I'm tired of rebuilding in various worlds and social networks. I wish I could just somehow have access to all my game friends and rl friends and have a way to display all my social networking shit in one place so I don't have to migrate wildly every few years. I feel like a disjointed spiderweb of online presence, and although obviously the phrase "nobody got time for that" isn't true for all, it applies to me now. I used to build my own personal website from scratch. Now I hardly have time to type my thoughts into a pre-programmed form and hit "Post" at the end.

I'll be done with my Master's in Experimental Psych in Spring of next year. I completed all the LPC and LMFT program courses so I can still get those licenses if I find the energy somewhere. I'm going to try for LCDC in March of next year so I can have a license before I graduate and take a wallet-wallop of student loan debt. I started this in Fall of 2008, and I essentially completed 3 Master's worth of courses. I love psych, but all I wanna do is write poetry and read fanfic and do ceramics for a month. Alone.

I'm in a better mood overall than this post suggests, but I'm not going to retype it. I just ate 6 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. God bless America.

So, this happened to me. Just putting the link up here since not everyone who reads this journal reads my fandom one, and vice versa. I'll probably have more thoughts on this later in the week.

In an Interstellar Burst...

"...I am back to save the universe."

And I'm using a lyric-title again. Boy, that's a throwback.

I had an option to "restore from draft" and all the stuff under the cut is what came up. That about sums up my 2011: counseling, counseling, and more counseling. I need more creativity in my life.

Crisis Counseling Crap Saved in Draft Form...I think this was from my final...Collapse )

Anyway, I need more creativity in my life. I want to write a poem a day, but I might just make a 365 poem goal for myself and do lots of haikus interspersed with longer ones.

See, I just tried to start a haiku and cut it somehow while I was trying to neaten that lj cut above this text. Nice, 2012. Already messing with me. And now I don't remember exactly what line I had. I have a keylogger on my computer for this very purpose and it didn't record the line. It was the middle line of a traditional 5/7/5 haiku. Maybe this is the universe's way of letting me know I arrange myself out of being creative, and that needs to stop.


A second attempt at a haiku, my first poem of 2012Collapse )

Sentence Summary Life

1) Living with fiance and his 3-year-old son now. We've been in the new place for a month. Right now, I'm the primary earner until he gets back into the National Guard. Lots of repairs on this place, but it's alright.

2) Got an incomplete on first semester of practicum. Finishing it up over the summer. Like Dr. L told me, "You signed up to get experience, not necessarily good experience."

3) Writing a little again.

4) Posting this so I'll post something longer next time. Soon, hopefully.

Oh, I Could Throw You in the Lake

"...or feed you poison birthday cake.
I won't deny I'm gonna miss you when you're gone."

This year, I...

1) Almost bought a house. Did the whole dang process: search, find, loan application. Thanks goodness for inspections. The foundation was shot, so I had to back out.

2) Got reactive arthritis while having a bout of tendonitis. I could barely walk, but I managed to only miss one day of class and one day of work because of it. It began in late September, was intensely horrible the entire month of October, and then began to taper off gradually in November. My sed rate was 105. It's now in the mid-40s, so I'm finally nearing normal range again.

3) Found a practicum site for my counseling degree. Huzzah?

4) Got engaged. In place of a ring, I have some dogtags that have been to Iraq and back.
