And it only took me a little over two weeks to let you know that. Thanks to everyone who comforted me on my last entry btw! ♥ Grad school's been fun so far, though I still get the nerves and a heaving fit at least an hour before leaving from work to go to class, but it's cool, it's cool.

[ramble ramble]I'm doing pretty well and getting good grades (surprisingly really good grades o_o) on my case studies for Marketing class, but doing rather poorly in socializing with my Marketing classmates. (Seriously, though, how does one go about initiating contact and properly responding to small talk? I fucking hate small talk. Also, I swear my classmates must think I only speak when there are grades involved.)

Advanced Academic Writing class, on the other hand, well. It still frustrates me at moment that I hadn't been exempted from this class, especially since all the concepts being discussed so far (and most likely everything that will be discussed later) are concepts I'd learned about during my freshman year as an undergrad and even taught twice after I'd graduated from college, but I figured I could use the review and the practice, especially since I pretty much suck at keeping my focus during actual writing. (HELLO, EVIDENCE RIGHT HERE.)

Also, still need serious intervention on my procrastination tactics.

I'm still pretty much at the mercy of Avengers fandom, but I haven't been doing anything but reading Bucky/Steve fic and doodling Thor/Loki things when I'm bored at work lately. I have finished my line art for avengers_rbb and, uh, posted these two pieces:

Fandom: The Avengers, Brave
Pairing/Characters: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff, Princess Merida
Rating: G
Warnings: Crack?


Fandom: Thor, The Avengers, X-Men: First Class
Pairing/Characters: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier, Thor/Loki
Rating: G
Warnings: So much crack. 8|

{ WHAT-- }
Are you sensing a pattern with my posts here? Shh, just ignore it.

Anyway, I'm on leave today because [moar dramu]my dad just lost his job and is out with my mum renewing their broker's and CPA licenses, and I was asked to babysit my little brothers (one of whom is currently suffering from a really bad tummy), soooo I'll just be forcing myself to finish my goddamn case study for tomorrow (seriously, Gin, it's just definitions this time--fucking type the shit down already!) and hopefully I'll have time to doodle before the folks get home and Mum lords over my actions again. XD

PS. SUITS IS BACK HNGHHRHGHHH. One of my RL friends had been going all "TEAM PARALEGAL!" on Twitter yesterday, and I couldn't help myself, I had to raise the flag for Team Harvey, and he was all, "...well damn. Now that would be a twist." YEP. IF ONLY. But, eeee, Suits!

OMG. that Loki/X-Men crossover is hilarious! Great job on that!

It's good to know you're alive and well! I hope grad school stays fun and your nerves go away. It's tough getting that performance-type anxiety on a daily basis. Just remind yourself of how brilliant you really are and how you will rock this!

I'm trying to stay optimistic and tbh can't really find any reason not to; I just have annoying anxiety issues (social mostly, but the performance is there too) but I think it'll only take getting used to the new environment to overcome.

And yes! I fully intend to rock this. :D thanks again! <333

it's all right! i just have a tendency to be overly dramatic about these things. my problem really isn't so much socializing as it is initiating contact, so it's lucky my classmates are generally a friendly bunch. ^^;;

thank you bb! ♥

lol i've given up trying to understand it. i can still be exempted from the remaining 3 units anyway, granted i get at least a 3.0 for this one--which i obviously plan to.
