Just stopping by to confirm I'm not dead

I'm currently at the final third of a a 12-hour shift, and really I'm just posting so I don't fall asleep. I've worked overtime before and usually it's a breeze, but I've found it's a hell of a lot easier to come in 3 or 4 hours early and leave at the usual time than to come in at the usual time and stay 3 or 4 hours late.

Finals are over, so hopefully I'll have some more to say soon, but in the meantime I just wanted to let folks kind enough to follow my blog know that more stuff will be forthcoming. I've been a slug since school ended, using my usual writing time (my overnight job) to play flash games and watch TV.

This semester felt like a complete waste, but I'm amping up for happier (and a hell of a lot busier) times this coming term. Rather than two classes I have no interest in and was retroactively informed I didn't even need; I've got a graduate-level fiction writing workshop, two writing intensive lit courses, and a journalism class. Lots of writing. Hopefully I'll have a new laptop by the time school starts to help me handle all the typing (I have one now, but it's old and the battery has the staying power of a Chevy Chase talk show).

So yeah, expect more stuff later. And before I forget, congrats to Chris Allen for being picked as one of the Eisner judges.
