I'm doing sci-fi and I'm still alive…

It’s official. I have been sick for over a month. Despite this, I have managed to:

  • Apply for an internship
  • Tell Futurismic about this story (and get a very sweet email in response)
  • Design a graphic for Squiddance 08 (and attend it)
  • Spend time with Ben
  • Read Fledgling, The Claus Effect, and much of The Spirit
  • Write an outline for The Von Neumann Wives

Despite this, I’m still woefully behind on some things. I have roughly twenty days to learn katakana, and memorize more useful Japanese verbs. Also I can feel my thesis bearing down upon me, and I feel as though I’m quite behind (in my defence, academic writing feels much harder when one’s sinuses are clogged with eldritch horrors). I’ve got a lot to do. Wish me luck.
