So I picked up Final Fantasy 13 again while my internet was down. Cue several days of grinding in Gran Pulse. Chapter 11... or is it 12...? Anyhow, I'm trying to take out as many marks as I can my first time around. Why? Just to say I can, I suppose. Or I'm enjoying the game so much, I don't want it to end. My desire to "complete" a game usually sharply decreases after I finish the storyline. Final Fantasy 7, 9, and 10 were very much flukes in my long history of console gaming in that I replay them constantly regardless of how far along I am in the storyline (lost count of how many times I've "beat the game" on those), and I'm not ready for FF13 to go away just yet.

Anyhow, after playing quite a bit, I wanted to see what sort of fanfiction was out there. Because, you know, fanfiction prolongs the joy of whatever fannish thing I'm taking part in this time. Finding lots of Vanille&Fang fics (totally expected), Snow&Serah fics (they're canon, duh, Self), and.... Hope&Lightning...? Hmm...

Musing and pointless exposition ensue )

So I'm having fun digging through those. Not as many long fics as I'd hoped to find, but there are quite a few gems out there ^_^

In other news completely unrelated to fandom (read:irl):

I was informed last Friday that my last day working at the company I'm with now will be October 31. On that date, I will be laid off. And that the only reason they could employ me through that date was that they needed someone to open the office while my coworker that normally does such goes on vacation next week. ('Cuz, you know, getting in to the office at 0700 is so hard when you schedule everyone else but us two to be in at or after 0900. Good luck covering that after I'm gone, geniuses.)

Well, crap.

*Goes to dig up and dust off and polish up the resume, not that it did me much good in the year and a half since graduating from nursing school, despite supposed nursing shortage*

...Anyone got job search tips? Gathered from my last year and a half of fail at this, I...well, I could use the help.

Muse bit me in my bum while I'm at work. Am secretly typing away in between answering the phones and working on my report. Am glad at times like these that I work on my own laptop that I tote back and forth to work.

It's for the Assassin's Creed universe. The game is eating my brain. For serious. I play it, I dream about it, I wait anxiously for updates for the stories I've found about it. Apparently I think about it when I should be working, and feel the need to write about it as well before I forget or lose the feelings involved in it. Serious stuff, indeed.

And here be a snippet of what I've worked on so far. Concrit, maybe? )

Drive in was fun this morning. Rain fell last night or in the midmorning, and then the arctic front hit and froze roads. The Parents are protective of us and made us stay home until the roads cleared up, so I didn't make it in to work until 10:30, three and a half hours after I usually do. Still, it's a quiet day, so there aren't that many problems with it. I only hope it doesn't repeat tomorrow.

Also, would like warmer weather now, please. We have a high of thirty Fahrenheit today. That sounds cold enough, and then you say negative one Celsius and it gets all the much colder. That's not factoring in wind chill. It's cold. I want my warmer winter weather back. ;_;

chibi_oniyuri: (hamster-chu)'s been a while, yes?

Things are going well here.... Alright, fine. Decently. Things are going decently here. Another semester at school has started. I'm enrolled in German II, Intro to Sociology, a chemistry course, and I'm taking Creative Writing online. All are fun so far, though CW is kicking my tail. We've started out learning and writing poetry, and I hate poetry. Or, more-so, I hate poetry I can't understand, and most of the ones the author of my textbook has chosen fall into this category. I find it difficult to write as well, but that's something I'll have to suffer.

On the other hand, CW has stirred some juices. Or maybe my muse has rejuvenated. Whichever it is, I am writing fanfics again. Whippee!

I also welcome a new fandom on board, and I blame [ profile] whiteadelphi for it all. I have fallen headfirst into TMNT, and I'm loving it. Seriously.

I've also recently fallen several levels in Fanfic Hell. Though I'm not really willing to go into details, as it's a guilty pleasure, rest assured that I'm loving that too.

Last time, I wrote that I'd applied to nursing school. Unfortunately, I didn't make it in. I will be applying again. I'm crossing my fingers this time.
