all about the words

{August 18, 2012}   Work, work, work all day long.

Yeah, that’s me these days. I love what I do, and I’m really enjoying myself. I’m gearing up for the start of a new semester, and my classes are all comm/journalism based. Let’s just say that if I fail these, I should probably look into a promising career as a dishwasher or something.

I’m cutting back hours at one of my jobs so I can at least try to not stress out all the time. I have three writing gigs and a possible editing gig on the table currently, not to mention school and my ‘day job’. Needless to say I’m more than a bit busy.

I downloaded an app. for tracking where I spend time on the internet, and it’s pretty much the worst thing I’ve ever done. Facebook is a time suck, and I need to be more aware of how I spend my time on there.

In other news, I’m going to go geek out and talk RPGs with my partner. ūüôā

{August 9, 2012}   Is this really happening?

Last night I sent out an email to pretty much my dream job. A call for bloggers to blog about games. I play PC games, for those of you who don’t know. (which is all of you. Surprise!) So needless to say, I was really hoping to hear back from them. I’ve been playing MMOs for years, and PC games even longer than that. This was pretty much the job to end all jobs, in my eyes. I wanted it, bad. Eyes on the prize. I submitted my writing samples, and waited.

Imagine my surprise this morning, when I got an email from them. Not just any email, but one from their Network Director for the PC gaming section.

I got the job.

I’ll be blogging for¬†¬†starting pretty darn soon. If you like PC games, or you just like my writing–check me out over there!

I’ve been writing for years beyond counting, and done so many unpaid gigs it’s unreal–but I stuck with it. I worked my ass off, and I never gave up. Never stop believing in yourself, ever. I’m living proof that anyone, anywhere–can accomplish their dreams.

So, a few months back I got into this website called NerdFitness. It eventually lead me to the Blog of Impossible Things, which I got daily in my inbox. Awesome stuff, I thought. I created my own Impossible list, and I think item 20 or so was, “Help people with my writing.”

As of today, I’ve not only crossed that off the list–but I’m helping Joel (the founder of ImpossibleHQ and writer of the Blog of Impossible Things) with a new challenge for the Impossible League.¬†–I will be helping Joel behind the scenes (writing, aggregating data, tracking challenges…) in the¬†Blog Of Impossible Things¬†league while we help raise $25,000 by the end of 2012 for¬†Pencils Of Promise¬†to build a school in Guatemala. Am I excited? Well, I think you can answer that for yourselves. I’m gonna sit here and think about how lucky I am to have this opportunity.

Never give up. Never stop dreaming. Ever.

If someone told me I would have had this opportunity a few months ago, I’d probably have laughed.

As of twenty minutes ago? It’s my reality.

I’m going to help do something impossible. Will you follow me along the way?
