Tomorrow, I begin the journey of Comps. There are 4 questions, over 4 days, and I have 4 hours to answer each of them. It’s sort of the marathon of test-taking.
Last week I turned in a 7000 word historical research paper about the rural purge. Maybe I’ll adapt that into some sort of much shorter blog post eventually. I also helped two groups of students write research papers and ran their statistical analyses for them.
I still have another long paper about my visit to the Supreme Court to edit down and turn in. I’ve written a lot of words, but they are not edited at all.
I also had to do a final proof of my article that’s going to be published in CrossCurrents about the relationship between religion and atheism and white-male dominance.
I am also in the middle of planning my move to DC (in one week). Trying to find an apartment and a job. Anyone in DC want to hire a super awesome person to do super awesome things? I’m available…
And I’m recovering from surgery to remove cysts from my head.
I’m also debating whether I should audition for The Voice, because it appears to be my stepdad’s favorite TV show, and whether I should start spending more time writing fiction.
I’ve got 54k of a young adult fantasy novel in the Terry Pratchett sort of style. I also have a screenplay (Bible Con – Comic Con for Christians) I feel I should adapt into a novel, because I think atheists would maybe buy it. So many projects.
Would you buy a novel from me? Maybe I’ll post an excerpt from one of my projects at some point.
So all in all, it’s a bit chaotic and thank FSM for Kate.
