I don't usually post on my journal page. I really only made my LJ account to participate in fanfic fests. Once I started teaching, it became even less likely that I'd regularly update a webpage. I'm not planning to make this a regular thing, but I would like to at least post when I'm active on here.

So... On the docket:

1 already lengthy fic for one fest
1 percolating fic for dramione_duet

My 1 year anniversary is on Tuesday *dances* (Although it's weird to try to make it a big deal considering we dated 7 years before we got married)

Oh yea, and...
My summer vacation ends in one week.

I have a month-long professional development deal that begins a week from today, and my school starts back up the week I get back. That means any classroom-related organizing or purchases need to be done this week. Fest fics need to be pretty solid drafts this week. I have reading for this PD that needs to be done this week. I have a secret wood working project I have to make by Tuesday without another trip to the hospital (last one was a sewing machine-related incident). And somewhere in there I need to pack while continuing my clean eating and daily exercise regime.

I'm going to have to go Hulk to get this all done. Wish me luck.

If I were skilled enough with LiveJournal I would fill this page with excited Gifs. Sadly, I'm an English teacher with grading to get back to, so I don't have time to Google that. I will however proudly display this shiny banner of awesomeness.

*Total freak out*

I can't even believe it! I've only ever proudly boasted participant banners before, so I am absolutely beside myself with excitement. It was a great fest, and there were some really wonderful stories. If you haven't yet, pop over to dramione_remix. It's always a fun fest with great writers.

None of my friends and family know I write fanfiction, but I'm tempted to post this to my Facebook and say "Look what I made!" I should get to bed, but quarter grades are calling...

Nothing makes me think of the holidays more than the Smutty Claus exchange. For the first time in a few years, I'm able to participate again. This will be my second year. More importantly, it will be my second year submitting art. With a new Photoshop program, I am certainly looking forward to it.

Posting starts tomorrow and I'm just waiting on a few edits from my Beta so I can submit. So excited that I got to participate this round, inspired by one of my FAVOURITE couples.

Well, it has been a long time coming, but I finished college! Some of you may have noticed that I didn't say "finished school." The fact is I haven't, and hopefully never will. After 23 wonderful years of life, I earned a Master's in teaching. I get to spend every day either teaching or planning to teach some brilliant little minds. Not every day is perfect, for example, I nearly cried when a whole class was befuddled by the poster on my door. "You teach English, why is there a fraction on that poster (9 3/4)"

Anyway, I have been wholly silent over the last year with little participation in fests or the website I help run. Although my first year of teaching will still be very busy, I do have more free time than before. I am nearly done with a piece for this year's Dramione Remix - one of my very first and all time favourite fests. I'm full of joy every day because of what I get to do for a "job" - so far I feel very blessed to get paid for what I do. My current goal is to get back on here and post like a regular member - at least once every other week or so.

Wish me luck!

I really don't mean to be last minute on any fest I participate in - I really do sign up with the sincerest faith that I will be done in no time (it has happened before! Once I turned in a completed work two days after I got the prompt and then grabbed another). Anyway, I am currently, frantically trying to finish my gigantic submission to the interhouse_fest. I can't thank the mods enough for giving me an extension, and I do have a Beta going through my some thousand words as fast as I can type, but darn it I have to sleep! Here's to hoping I can get it all wrapped up tomorrow and start making corrections from the Beta.... Eeek

I'm also committed to, but haven't begun my submission for,this:

I LOVE my prompt, but, I suddenly just remembered, Christmas is right around the corner! The fest piece is due the 1st, so I don't have much time to waste anyway, but I am one of those people that has to spend HOURS getting or making things for the dozen people on my Christmas list, and this year I have colleagues to bake for! I am just running in circles trying to compose my thoughts and calm my mind...

Tis the season!

This sounds a little intense, but I'm way excited that I signed up!
You should join too! (Fic only, no art exchange fest)

I always seem to have to do these 2 or 3 times, so hopefully I can get this in one go.
Two big, important things.
1 - The super epic Porn in the Sun fest is going on again. Hallelujah! The fest that started all my livejournal love is going on and I'm knee deep in my work for it - I CAN'T WAIT!

Join us in sweaty, filthy fun at hp_porninthesun! Sign ups: March 1st - 15th!

Also, Still slightly on the fence about this one (it'll depend on some time constraints that I thought were going to be worse than they are and others I wasn't prepared to occur). I'll definitely be lurking and commenting like a pro, but participation is still kind of iffy...
But, YOU should definitely go check it out. It looks like it will be AMAZING!
Announcing hp_fanart_fest!

The Dramione Remix is back on and I'm SO EXCITED about my prompt this round. It'll be difficult for me to keep it under wraps, but I'm sure I can. At the moment, all I can say is that I've invested probably 12 hours into research in the way of TV, movies, and I just checkout out 3 text books from my university library (that's what they're for right? Researching material for fanfiction?). All that to say I'm super stoked and ready to tackle this fic. I even already have a Beta lined up! What fun this will be!!!
