It's funny how much can change in week. I officially started my internship this past week. I met with the associate director of the campus ministry I'm interning with on campus the other day to go over some things and to get an idea of what this will look like as well as to pray. Other than that, I haven't done to much with my internship mostly because school hasn't started yet.

I've also started training for my part-time job. I'm really liking it so far. The company I'm working for made it a point to hire people with similar personalities to avoid possible personality clashes. I really do appreciate that and I think it helps all of us to connect with each other as well. I also feel like they want me there. My last job that I quit nearly two years ago was just a terrible place and I honestly think they saw me as a waste of space. I feel like the last job hired me solely because they had a freakishly high turn over (they hired 4 of us within two weeks and I was the last to quit 2 months later) and needed to fill some positions. It was a bad environment all around (no surprise the store/company went completely belly up earlier this year). But this place, they're excited that we're there. They're excited for us to work for them and that has made me excited to work for them. I don't dread going to training because of the environment or because of the people. I actually look forward to it. So far, I've only had classroom training and it's been A LOT of information to take in. That has been a little overwhelming, but otherwise it hasn't been bad at all. Sunday I'll start training in the actual venue with the games and everything so it'll be more information for sure, but it's nice to feel like they're not expecting us to be 100% perfect from the very first time we set foot in there. It's nice that they understand that we are humans and therefore we can't be 100% perfect.

As of today, I finished the second draft of my novel! I'm not going to post draft 2 this time around like I did with draft one, but that's because I'm going to start researching possible literary agents and see where this can go. I know that draft two won't be the draft that hits shelves, but I feel like this draft could possibly get me read - which is about 90% of your fight in the publishing industry. Obviously, there's still a lot to do. I need to research each possible agent very thoroughly as well as find out what each agent wants. So, my guess is - assuming I do all this on a regular basis: ie 5 days a week - I should possibly start hearing back these possible agents within the first few months of next year. It's so crazy to think that I'm at this point in my career. It's exciting to think that I'm at this point in my career.

I'm also seriously considering starting a writing group that I would like to function as a workshop of sorts here on dA. I don't have a lot of things in mind yet, other than the basic concept, but I think I'm going to do it. I'm just waiting to hear back from a friend to see if she wants/can co-admin with me on it since I'm not sure I can take that on by myself plus everything else that has been going on. Either way, I'll keep you all posted on what's going on with that.

I think that's all that's really going on in my life at the moment. It's gotten busy and next week is going to be super busy with training every night besides Monday night, but I'm looking forward to it.

How have you all been? What's going on in your lives?

You probably want to hear a little about ol' me if you're reading this. Well, I'm 23 and a recent college graduate (now comes the hard part of figuring out what I'm gonna do with my life until I launch my writing career). I'm an aspiring author as well as an aspiring photographer (TheMysteryPhotograph is my photography account). I've been here on dA for about 8 years now. I don't mind fav and runs, but I do like to get feed back on the writings that I post, mostly because I am serious about making a career out of writing. I'm one of those loyal people who gives second chances. My philosophy on that is this: God is always giving me a second chance (or by now, it's probably something like the millionth chance, LOL!) so why shouldn't I? As long as the friendship or relationship is healthy (ie, non-abusive) why not give the person another chance? Basically I'm a wanna be photographer, I'm an aspiring author, I'm a sister, I'm a daughter, I'm a friend. But above all things I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, without him I'd be nowhere and in a very dark place. If you want to know more, please feel free to ask. :)
