School and Getting Snowed in…

School has finally started, and I’m happy about that since it means I have a year tops at VCU. I will be graduating in Spring 2017. It feels awesome to almost be done with school. I was hit with snow this past weekend, and it hit us with at least 15 inches. The most we’ve ever seen in a while. I’m pretty much stuck since my car is covered in snow. I’ve also been out of work the past three days since I can’t even get out of my street. I’m taking Graphics for Journalism, Writing for web and Print, Intro to Broadcast Writing, and Audio and Video Journalism. I have to say I love it so far, and my writing will change a long with the quality of my Youtube videos and my Blog. I can even learn how to create newsletters which will be helpful. I haven’t been sitting around doing nothing though. I’ve been working on my journalism homework.
I’ve also been doing research on Audiobooks as well, and instead of getting someone else to do the narration I want to do it myself. Of course, I’m also experimenting with software for it like using Garageband from my MacBook Pro. I’ll write a blog post about the process as well and tell people about my experiences with it. I took some time to clean up my room, and gathered up all my work notebooks to use in future stories. I’m still waiting to hear back from a reader about Scarlet book 1 then I’ll revise accordingly. It might be ready in 3 or 4 months give or take. It’s expensive to publish hence why that will be a topic for another post. Even a Youtube video can be made about it. I want to write some stories to include in anthologies like shorts or novellas. I write all kinds of stories so it’s fun. I just wanted to do a quick update before I work on a few of my stories. I plan on making a notebook with all the rituals in my worlds, and maybe read a few books on the way. I hope you guys are safe.

Are you stuck in the house like I am? What are you doing to pass the time?

Until next time,

Life Updates….

I haven’t been blogging much lately, and the reason is because of school and work. With less then five weeks to go I’m gearing up for my projects with journalism. Only two more television projects to get through, and three articles to revise. Not to mention plan my layout for my Graphics for Journalism class. It’s a lot of work, and not for someone who is into instant gratification. The problem is mainly getting in touch with the people you need. Sometimes they can be friendly, and answer right away other times they ignore you or be incredibly rude. It’s a trial by fire for sure. When you have the camera none of the students seem like they want to talk at all. I plan to get a parking pass next semester and a smart tag to drive myself since my mom works there I ride in with her. I signed up for three this semester and three the next. It’s coming to a close so fast I definitely have to look for an internship and set it up Spring 2017. My boyfriend is also deployed for a year which sucks, but at least school and writing will keep me busy. I’m just counting down the days, but I’m also nervous since it means looking for a job in my field. Or if I write and publish more then I can just write full time. It’s going to be a change since I’ll have to move out, and get my own place. I’ll take over my car payments and pay my own bills. It also means that I’ll get a smart tag and a parking pass to take myself to school since I go to school mon-thursday. I’ve been in school way too long, and it will be 5 years in October working at a retail job. I definitely need a change. I want the ability to act like a grown up and plan things out. I’ll be able to blog more and film more Youtube videos. I’m also now in an issue of The Commonwealth Times. It was a long road to get that article done, but it reminds me that hard work pays off in the end.

Until next time,
