While I would like nothing more than to 1) not work 40 hours a week while in grad school and 2) just sit around and write fics and go for walks and daydream and be a generally non-productive member of society in some ways, none of this is possible because I exist in the real world. School is slowly consuming me and it makes me both wistful and incredibly overwhelmed. I VOLUNTARILY signed myself up for this?! And paid a LOT of money?! Yikes. But, I'm discovering, that just because it's hard doesn't mean I can't have at least a little fun.

8-10 page research paper. Proposal due today. Kat's topic: online fandom. In the words of 10, OH YES!

Not only is there an incredible amount of scholarship on this (fans are nothing if not thorough), but I think it's inspired me as far as a final thesis/project idea. My brain's a buzzin' and I'm trying to focus/nail it down but basically I want to do a communications project that brings together fandom and doin' good (aka relevant to my nonprofit day job/career). There's a bunch out there on this already but I'm trying to figure something out. I've got 2 years til it's due anyway, but they encourage you to get an idea of what you want to do ASAP so that you can make everything you do in your classes relevant to it so that you'll be better prepared when the time comes.

Once I play catch up with lots of school this weekend, hopefully I can get back to writing chapter 2 of the fic I've been working on. And also get going on my trope bingo card - yay!

Oh fandom...you're overwhelming and interesting and tiring and awesome. Allons-y!

PS. Someone please explain to me how to get more friends or whatever you call them on this thing! The random search bar thing where I type in an interest seems overwhelming and ineffective.
