The Beginning of the End.
I am standing on the verge of the last day of the first full week of my senior year in college. And I am alarmed. Maybe not alarmed, per se, but definitely apprehensive. And in the past week's scurrying about from professor to professor begging for publishing tips, graduate school tips, internship tips, and tips about how not to go completely insane in the coming months, I have culled some interesting information. 1. I should probably chill out some. 2. I should probably start sending my work out to publishers, online, undergraduate, upper-echelons, everywhere. And 3. I should probably keep up my blog. And that's where it gets a bit weird. Technically, I have kept up my blog, in the form of a photo-based tumblr you can find here, but in the silly process of switching from blogspot to Wordpress (which, for the record, I didn't like as much and for that reason used only three times). Now, I do really like where my tumblr went, and is still (sort of) going - in any case it seems more likely to be maintained now that I am back on American soil than either of the other blogs. But the internet-published writing has sort of fallen by the wayside, and now that the European adventures have come to a halt I'm at a kind of impasse. You see, I've also got reams of (old) poetry on deviantart, the credibility of which I doubt daily and for that reason worry, probably needlessly, that I should remove my profile altogether lest I be classed an amateur, which I am. So I'm sort of... all over the internet and spread rather too thinly to update everything regularly. So I think I'll just stick to here for long written entries, and keep photos and single, witty sentences for tumblr, abandon Wordpress altogether (which I already have) and perhaps someday either overhaul or entirely delete my deviantart. Now if only I could figure out how to get back into livejournal and delete it... You know, because I am an English major.
