On the Media Viewing Front...
The first Tuesday of the White Collar season break and I'm feeling the withdrawal already.
Randomly I rewatched The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
starring Martin Freeman, Zooey Deschanel, and Mos Def. The first time I saw this in theaters I was slightly drunk and consequently had little recollection of it. Watching it sober I realized that there are a lot of things wrong with it. But also a lot of things that made me smile. Despite the fact that he looked nothing like the way I'd always pictured Ford Prefect in my head (my Ford has red hair), I kind of loved Mos Def's interpretation. On the RL Front...
My first doctoral stats exam is next week. I sort of fear it. Mainly because most of the upper classmen have been telling me it's a bit brutal. Great.
My program itself continues to bring me some agony along with the ecstasy. As much as I enjoy most of my courses, I feel ridiculously disconnected from the rest of my cohort which is made up of 11 other students. I'm fairly certain about 80% is in my imagination but this does little to stem my general malaise when I realize that I have nothing in common with these people other than a desire to be a clinical psychologist. How is it that I somehow ended up back in high school where I find myself worrying if I'm in group or out group??On the Fic Front...Mainly "Smoke and Mirrors"
Bet you didn't think I'd bring up my disasterously overdue WIP fic, huh?
Well, here's where things sort of stand. Basically, the story plotwise is done. I've mapped it out and I know where everyone needs to go and how stories will conclude and the reasons behind why certain things happened. What I'm mostly stuck on is finding the time and the energy to actually type it out in a prose that won't bore people to tears and/or make them question what happened to my grasp on both the Torchwood and Dresden Files fandoms.
Do I intend to finish this story one day? Yes, I do. Is there a set time? No.
So, for those of you who are either waiting to kill me or ready to give up in frustration, I have an offer to make. ( Read more... )
