Sorry about that Lili...

I haven't been around recently because I am currently in the middle of some examinations. I just finished one a couple of hours ago, after spending several hours in panic mode the previous night. I think it went better than I thought it would.Wink

Anyway, I have to admit that I envy you, Laura, in regards the trip you took. It sounds like fun, and something you deserved.

No problem. Exams come first, after all. And I have a good feeling you're going to ace them. Smile

Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

Sweetie, that sucks big time! I was unemployed for the first three months of 2011, and I hated every minute of it - I know the feeling of being rejected.

But it sounds as if you had found a silver lining?

Laura, your trip sounds really fun, and I bet the scenery was beautiful.
Thanks for the support, Paul. I must admit I was pretty bummed at first, but I think that it might be working out now. I appreciate all the great consideration you guys always have shown.

Ah, I'm sorry to hear that, Lilli. Losing a job, especially one you were looking forward to and landing, sucks. But I hope you don't come down too hard on yourself. I know it hurts now, but try your best to put it behind you. And you know we're always here to lean on if you need it.

Happy birthday, Kitty. We would love to see you back. Smile

Didn't want to post here because I was feeling down. And then later didn't want to post because I was afraid of the web vitriol that would have come spewing out of my mouth.

I lost the job. Yeah. My life is such a joke. It would have been one thing to be rejected, but accepted and then dismissed? Ouch.

I guess sometimes reality is something you have to rise above. Hehe.

Anyway ..... the real reason I'm posting:

Today, according to LC, is Kitty's birthday. I miss Kitty, she was a great poster, both on YA and here. Kitty, have a great 20th birthday, and have lots of cake and ice cream and a crazy fun time! Thinking of you. jocolor jocolor jocolor jocolor

Hmmm. It seems everyone is on an extended vacation. I guess I'll just hold down the ol' fort in the meantime.

Welcome back, Laura! That sounds like it was a fun trip, even if it was a "working vacation" of sorts. It's always interesting to take kids out of their normal, familiar environment and expose them to other aspects of the world around them.

Things are fine around here. Today is Mother's Day, so I'll be seeing my mom later. Maybe I can talk my kids into cleaning their room as a gift to my wife. Eh, that may be a case of having expectations that are a bit too high. Razz

I'm back in town. I spent a few days on a class trip to Norderney, a beautiful island in the North Sea. We had a great time, with my poor city kids being speechless with joy over every rabbit and flower they saw (which, I admit, lead to rare and precious moments of silence).

How are things with you?

Mainly English teaching, but if that doesn't work out, stuff like waitressing or secretarial work.

oh my. good luck. I am almost done with this weaving the three stories together. I made a picture album to help me along the way too

Have you ever come to the realization that your current story doesn't have enough to make it a full length novel?

I have recently. So, I've been taking inventory of all the ideas I have and am considering combining one or two or three. If I type of synopsis of them and post it on the prose section will you give me your opinions on what you think would work better together? I know it's my decision, but I value your opinions.

Absolutely. I would love to see it! Very Happy And yes, I will be honest. Smile

Easter was a five day holiday in Australia this year, as it coincided with another holiday, ANZAC day. I managed to get a bit of writing done, though not nearly as much as I would have liked.

Yes, that's right, Easter is this Sunday. I am not much of one for gardening, but reading heaps of books sounds like a great idea! Very Happy albino
