Goings-on

So, here's the update I promised.

As I mentioned last year, I'm living in a shitty trailer on my folks' rural property. I have an unimpressive part-time job (janitor) that doesn't pay much (but it's a stress-free job with very flexible hours).

But, good things are happening. I finally got accepted to a program called Biological Sciences Technology! In Edmonton. So I will be moving in a few months. Actually moving out permanently, into an apartment. I have been dreaming of this since I was 12! Of course, now I have to panic about money; specifically, where the hell am I going to get some? I'm not one of those freaks who can hold down a job and go to school full-time.

I'll still need the folks to pay for rent and food (argh!) but I should have enough saved to manage the rest myself. There's probably no need to panic, as long as other looming expenses don't clean me out.

When I moved out here my cat Shadowfax was allowed to go outside at last. He loves it here. He's out frolicking in the bushes and killing things at the crack of dawn. Poor guy'll be an indoor kitty again in Edmonton.

In preparation for school I just replaced my aging computer with a fancy-ass iMac. WOW. Fancy. Just set it up today, now playing around and learning how to use it. The monitor is unbelievable. Clearest picture EVER.

I still have a partially-dislocated jaw that needs fixing (possibly involving surgery), and no dental insurance. And I recently discovered a big, honking cavity too. Ain't life grand?

I'm writing again. I just did a Potter fic for [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen, and I'm planning more. I might branch out into new fandoms.

That's all for today. I will update for often forthwith.

The Bad News: Yesterday my dentist informed me that my jaw is partially dislocated, and I'll need braces (and other painful stuff) to fix it. I'd noticed the jaw doing wonky and annoying things lately, so this was not a surprise, but it sucks. I had braces (and headgear and elastics and other tortures) 10 years ago, but apparently it didn't fix the overbite enough, so I get to do it again (or the wonky jaw will keep getting worse). And this time I don't have an awesome dental plan to pay for it. Yippee.

The Good News: My Criminal Minds fic was nominated for an award! I'm all smiley and giddy. The jaw thing suddenly doesn't bother me anymore.
