I Need The Will Power of a Badger.

NaNoWriMo
Unless I have amazing bout of inspiration tomorrow (which shall hopefully be used in making a good mockup for my final portfolio) I think this NaNoWriMo is dead before its fully passed the gate. I could always switch the story at the last second...but being behind by 5,000 words is a bit much to overcome. And I have lots to do...but I really want to write something...

You know. I'll see what I can do this Friday and Saturday. I might be able to figure out something. On certain Saturday mornings, I've been known to knock up the word count by 5,000 words.

The Job
I got the job that I interviewed for. Oddly enough, it seems that they were looking for someone who had a cheerful and upbeat personality, who was willing to work with others and so forth. It seems really surreal that I got the job actually. I was fully expecting to be plodding around clueless for a semester while I waited for grad school next fall...which I was not looking forward to.

The job itself is "Technology Assistant" and while it doesn't sound like my dream job...
A) I don't even know what my dream job is
B) Sounds like something fitted for my college learnings in Scientific and Technical Communications.
C) IT'S A JOB

Hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised in the long run. I'm nervous a bit, because...well... it's a job. And I've had jobs before... but this is a full-time job job.

So, I'll be moving away from my middle-of-nowhere city to the middle-of-nowhere Wyoming. Except its a lot closer to a big city and in driving distance from California.

Graduation
Well, I guess that all that's left is to get the best grades I can in school and tie up all the loose ends to graduation. Which means I need to hunker down and get all projects done within a month. Which means, I hope, that you won't be seeing me around for a bit. Really. Sure, I might pop up on chats a bit. Perhaps a few pieces of art, perhaps some Twitters, but really...I need to hunker down. I'm at that point of "Holy Badgers...THE END IS NIGH! BACK TO THE DEPTHS WITH YE FOWL INTERWEB BEAST!"

I say this after wasting WAY TOO LONG today clicking without doing anything productive. Don't worry. There's really nothing much due tomorrow. You see, this semester is actually not that bad. Just seems bad at times because of my procrastination. ARGH.

Other

Oh...and would peeps be interested in a Christmas card? I ought to start drawing one now.

And isn't that Reading Badger by kyrahlynn in my av awesome?

Yay for getting a job! :D I'm going back to the drawing board myself, but I'm glad that you don't have to. Having an income should be pretty rad.

Christmas card sounds... intriguing!

Also, I was about to comment just for that icon. It is indeed an adorable badger.

I feel a little guilty for getting it actually...I didn't even get to wear a tie.

And yus...I might force myself to sketch one out this weekend. WE SHALL SEE.

It is my policy that there can never be enough of badgers (or otters or raccoons or ferrets...but badgers are pretty much on top). Here is the full picture.

Ah, so Carolyn drew it. Nice! When I first saw it, I imagined that he was reading Redwall.

It such a cuddlesome badger. ^^

And have to draw the Christmas card first...

And the NaNo is very dead.

And YUS. Consider yourself on the short list of "People On The West Coast I Need To Stalk Down" when you go back there at some point.

Wyoming is awesome! My grandparents live there. Can I ask where you'd be going?
