Disappointment, resolve and midnight oil

Finally got my computer parts in and working, though there was some issue with an outlet and several reconstructions but I now know how to put a computer together really well. I've been playing quite a bit of the DOTA2 beta with my roommates and have been enjoying myself quite a bit. It was a long wait for the parts, but well worth the investment.

On another note, I did not make it into Clarion for the '12 session. Sad, but there are tons of candidates for every accepted applicant so I'm not too terribly heartbroken about being a terrible writer and blah blah blah. I'm a little disappointed, but that is a completely nature reaction to this sort of news. I've taken it in stride and am going to attempt to become published this summer... somewhere. We'll see what voodoo I can manage with a few captive editors and no classes.

Had a wonderful weekend other than that though. Watched the entire first season of Game of Thrones on Saturday and the first episode of the new season last night. I am really excited and I'm going to have to read the books now (I'm a terrible person for not reading them already, but sometimes we do things out of order.) We also hosted the Alumni Tournament for out fencing club and we got to see quite a few familiar faces return to us. We all went out to Crunchy's afterword, though I only had a coke and some pizza, I do have exams this week and needed to study.

I've got another story in the works, and it seems that I always write best when I have more important things to do. Probably my procrastination kicking into overdrive or something. But anyway and otherwise, it's been a bit of an emotional roller coaster this week and I need to study for my exams.

So long, until we meet again!
