On a reread of Deathly Hallows, more closely and slowly this time, to be followed by a full reread of the series from Sorceror's Stone to Deathly Hallows.
Have a week before apocalyptothon
submissions are due, so have to rewrite the latter part of my story sometime before then.
Have been writing a lot of SW fic -- the sequel to "What is Lost", currently nameless, in much the same style I wrote WiL -- which is to say, with bits and pieces all over the place. I have a vague plot in mind, but I have to figure out what to do with Luke and Leia; I'd thought I'd had it figured out, but apparently not. And also do a little more research into the EU, specifically with Quinlan Vos, Aayla Secura, and Mace Windu. Possibly Yoda.
As well, I'm halfway through the summer before my senior year, so I'm having to seriously start narrowing down schools, start my essays and applications, look at scholarships, et cetera. I narrowed my list of schools down slightly, but I also added some; I still have the problem that most of the schools I'm looking at are reach schools; I need more safety schools if I want to be able to go somewhere other than the UW if no one on the East Coast takes me. And guys, I really hate Seattle, so I'd rather not go to the UW.
Current list of prospective schools, in no particular order (okay, that's a lie, it's in alphabetical order):
Boston College (Chestnut Hill, MA)
Boston University (Boston, MA)
Brown University (Providence, RI)
Dartmouth College (Hanover, NH)
Davidson College (Davidson, NC)
Dickinson College (Carlisle, PA)
Duke University (Durham, NC)
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Prescott, AZ/Daytona Beach, FL)
Stanford University (Stanford, CA)
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Chapel Hill, NC)
University of Washington (Seattle, WA)
Washington and Lee University (Lexington, VA)
Wellesley College (Wellesley, MA)
I'm looking at an anthropology/archaeology major with a possible double major in music/music ed, although my experience at Brown has me looking at a creative writing major or minor -- leaning very, very
tentatively, I might add -- except at ERAU, where I'd probably be going for global security and intelligence studies or homeland security, and UNC, where I'd probably go anthropology and peace, war, and defense.
I'm thinking about writing my essays on writing, music (specifically, my experience with symphonic band vs. wind ensemble), or fandom. I'm not sure how that last part would work, but it's unusual, I hope.
I need to start practicing bari again -- I need to have my music memorized for marching band, and I need to have my music down for All-State auditions in the fall. And start practicing flute, so my teacher doesn't kill me.
Don't even get me started on having to do scholarship apps.
Or summer reading. Which isn't technically required, because it's homework for the main school year, but I'd like to do it now so I don't have to do it then.
Also, knitting, because I actually have a commission I need to finish.
I'm going to edit my final project story -- now renamed to "And All the Saints are Sinners" -- a little bit more, then possibly send it out somewhere.
Yes. My life really is this boring. *rolls eyes* I haven't been out of the house in three days, no wonder I was sad to come home.ETA:
Dude, Boston College CREEPS ME OUT. My comp was on the BC website, my mom walks in with the mail including the BC "come here! we rock!" guide and application, I say something about being really uncertain about BC for various reasons, and then BC e-mails me not two seconds later
. What the hell, is this school stalking me or what?
