Hi everybody! I know I've been away for ages and I miss it so much. I wish I had more of a chance to be more active in fandom, even though bandom seems pretty quiet. Just because bandom itself is pretty quiet doesn't mean I don't want to be hanging out and talking with people. Conventional Weapons seems to be shaping up to be an awesome album and MCR themselves seem to be slowly coming out of hibernation. I can't wait to download the songs (I've listened to them but not downloaded them yet. So far The Light Behind Your Eyes is my favorite)
Empires new video is great. Not like, super interesting, but it has Sean firing a flaming arrow (whhhhhyy bb do not do dangerous stuff you will DIE) and Max smiling and walking around and Doing Stuff. and Tom smiles! It's beautiful.
Life in La Hoya continues much as normal. Thankfully Sandy did not do much damage to us. We lost running water to the village for two weeks but nothing more serious than that. My students set their exams last week and did alright. I nearly lost my mind over grading but I love teaching and the students continue to be a joy, even when they're fricking pains in my ass.
One think I've found unable to do in the DR is write. I think it's the inspiration just not being there and also not being able to bounce ideas off people regularly. I can do a bit here and there but it's mostly tinkering, not anything that could be continued real writing. SO, a meme! A WIP meme, to be exact. I'll list names/summaries of all my WIPS, unfinished, never-to-be-finished and plotbunnies and if you comment with one of the names, I'll post an except or write a bit more of it or answer questions about it, whatever you want.
( WIPs )
