Just wanted to pop on and pimp this out for spn_littlebro
has set this all up and is even buying the prize for the winner! How awesome is that? The contest sounds like fun so run on over and rec some things!
Also September is my rec'ing month for rocksalt_recs
. I'm really excited for that because if anyone knows me I like rec'ing things \0/ J2 is my genre of rec'ing and I'm hoping to hit 8 recs for the max. October is when I get to rec Gen. Also come Wednesday I will make sure hell or high water I get my Weekly Recs Wednesday in! Mark my words you WILL see it ;D
I sent in my rough draft for my spn_gen_bigbang
yesterday and my fic for theheartofspn
is done! Just need a beta. (Speaking of, anyone willing?) Phew this seems like a lot for fandom but I'm really happy with how everything has progressed and how organized I am being despite me attending college now. I thought I'd be a mess or something but I am really happy that things are going great, my first quiz in Math I wrangled an 100%! REALLY happy about that, my first essay in English and I think it's really good. All in all I am actually quite happy to be honest. Fandom and College are aligning in such a perfect way and neither is taking from the other, at least to me.
Also, this is kind of a funny/great thing to me. My older brother is kind of what you would consider a bum. I don't want to be mean but he's a prior felon, lazy and a pretty pessimistic angry person. He has a son (that he rarely sees/takes care of) and he's working shrimping which is a job you do at night and he sleeps all day. He takes advantage of my parents and is generally pretty jealous of me, for whatever reason, because supposedly I am favored over him or some shit. Whatever really. I've been hearing and dealing with his shit for years.
Well, he's basically a child still, he's almost 30 and he still acts like a brat pretty much. Though yesterday all of the sudden he was like "You know. I want to quit my job and get my G.E.D. Will you help me register for college after I get it?" Like you don't understand, he's NEVER talked about getting his G.E.D. It has always been the same excuse anytime I ask him. Either I can't do it, I have no time or I don't want to what's the point? But like yesterday he was so gung ho about college, and changing his life and getting a career and he was actually LOOKING at me and LISTENING to what I had to say about college. He was so engaged, even making me look up testing dates for a G.E.D. Like it was a MIRACLE or something happening. I'm still in shock that happened to be honest. Because he's been this angry lazy person for years. 28 years and he still hasn't do shit with his life and I found it kind of amazing he suddenly wanted to change now.
Anywho I rambled enough. How are all of you doing?( Pimping under cut )
