Slow week

I officially gave myself a head injury last week. I finally got it checked out on Tuesday so I could get myself a bona fide "get out of jail free" card for work since EVERYONE was calling off and I felt my condition was more necessary than a cold or stomach ache- I had gone in to work every day I needed to and even put in 6 hours of overtime on already longer than real people shifts and I was mentally exhausted. Like had a crying jag mentally exhausted. Not good. I have those at home, never at work. I had a nice bruise on the parietal area of my brain and that basically controls making sense of things...which explains my total ditziness and not being able to understand half of what was going on and being completely unable to focus on anything, becoming easily overwhelmed. It was joked that the injury knocked the sharp, quick-witted me down to a more normal speed. Ha bloody ha.

San Diego Zoo's PandaCam has been a GREAT source of some cathartic viewing! The baby panda cub, Xiao Liwu is too adorable! Earlier he wasn't letting his mama, Bai Yun, get any sleep and kept climbing on her! If you want to see a cuteness overdose, go here:

Putzed around a bit on my [community profile] orgasm_circlet  draft and I am about halfway to my goal. My problem is I am writing individual scenes instead of an entire story (that will wait for either NaNoWriMo or one of the Camp NaNoWriMos if I am impatient to begin). The NaNo stuff is supposed to tie my OC scenes together. I've enjoyed getting out of my comfort zone with this project and it's been great to work on something fictional before I go back into my academic writing to finish off my school week. My instructor was understanding that trying to do work (which requires keeping track of a LOT of serious information on about a dozen kids and their medications), work OVERTIME (because overnight shifters LOVE to stay up an extra 5 hours for training!), and heal from this injury....and then do school work.... it wasn't happening! I mean I looked at the essays and was like "Wha??"

I also had to deal with people IRL being more shitty than usual and picking a heck of a time to do it. I severed ties with several people this past week for various reasons. The head injury just made all their crappy flaws more noticeable and I weighed what I had done for these people (a LOT with no expectation of anything in return, way more than I should have!) versus what they had done for me (so little I wouldn't even notice they were gone) and decided to let the parasites go. One of them was all butt-hurt that I would even DO that over his having "an opinion" (he posted a lovely anti-Semitic video on his FB wall. I'm Jewish. See the problem? That's no opinion, that's just being shitty and insensitive and I've had my fill of those people).

Blah enough about crappy people. I'm going to go back to my writing now!

~*About Anna*~

I'm a grad student, wannabe writer, budding rock-and-roll baker, and an artist. I'd like to think that my life serves as proof that you can have an advanced education, normal job, look normal, and yet still be a total bad-ass and make creepy, freaky stuff and write saucy books.

I love to write even if it's just for my own amusement. I have enjoyed participating in NaNoWriMo and Script Frenzy and intend to keep participating in them as well as any other writing challenges I am able to join. I like the idea of trying new things, setting goals, and accomplishing something for the sheer reward of saying I did it.

Most of my updates on my writing projects are public unless it's kind of spoilery stuff I'm not ready to show.
