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. 🙂

{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 http://www.rantgaming.com/ 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.
