Sorry for this incredibly long period of time that’s been going on between posts. I’m hoping to start my post-a-week schedule- the one I USED to have- back up again here, now that it’s summer and my only prerogatives are… well, we’ll get to that.
I was going to do one of my usual delve-into-a-deep-ish-topic-and-distribute-my-useless-and-very-likely-unpopular-opinions sort of post, but I changed my mind. Instead, I’m going to tell you what I have going on right now. Then, next week, we’ll concern ourselves with what is the norm here on this blog.
At first, I didn’t want to do this because it just seemed rather self-centered of me. I mean, surely you don’t care about stuff directly related to me, right? But then my Curly Hair posts got more likes/views than anything on my blog ever has, and I decided I might as well try it.
So…. what am I doing right now?
The big thing is I’m trying to study for SATs. Being home-schooled, I can end high school sooner because I’m not waiting for 50 other kids to catch up (and I have). So I’ll be taking the SATs this November, hopefully, so that I can get into college and get an Associate’s in Office Administration. I only need it for my planned day job- receptionist. That day job is hard to get without it and it’s a job I think I would be good at and enjoy doing until I can do something musical full time.
Also required is Spanish. I’d like to learn a second language anyway (though I was planning on French, but Spanish is okay I guess lol) So I’ll be starting that over the summer. at the moment, the only sentence I can say is mi gato es no bueno, which I’m pretty sure is “my cat is no good”.
Yes, I know that makes no intellectual sense. I’m just thrilled it makes grammatical sense.
Smaller things? My Help website for the game, Howrse.com, which is The Book Of Howrse is really popular (oer 2000 people a day!) so I’m taking that more seriously now, devoting time to it (running a website all yourself- design, content, social media, blog, youtube channel and videos for it, comment responding, email responding, sending out the newsletter, making graphics for people, and making graphics for the site itself- take A LOT more time than you’d think) and making sure all scheduled and promised things actually do happen.
I’m of course always working on guitar and songwriting, but that’s a given.
I’m also always writing stuff. I’ve got two books to finish right now and three fanfiction pieces as well.
And… well… I’m actually DOING social media now. Like, I post daily on the two I exist on (my twitter & google+).
Over the summer, I’m gonna be building a gaming/video-photo-audio editing computer, and I may just start a gaming YouTube channel… but I’d also need a PS3 (which I plan to buy this year, as well as the PS3 games I’ve been DYING to play for years).
I also got a new laptop, which I’ll discuss in a future post, and I plan to detassle corn this summer.
That’s what’s going on with me now…
