Biology class is imminent, though so is the fact that I’ll be a few minutes late. I’ve attended my classes responsibly, for the most part. I’m a bit cocky because I’ve been cutting class since the 2nd grade and still passing…
…not just passing, but excelling beyond my peers in every standardized test.
Maybe it does make me cocky…too cocky. I haven’t exactly passed every college class.
I did OK on the lab practical…fairly sure I passed, but I don’t like it when it’s a mystery, a surprise I’m waiting for. I’ve done much better on every other exam so far.
I don’t know why I’m telling this to the internet as if it cares.
Is it sad that I would love time to write fanfiction again? Then again, I love the job that has eaten every available hour outside of classes between noon and 10pm. I love assembling the dead, putting their pieces back in place and learning their stories.
I’ve finished a baby deer skull and two human craniums just yesterday…
Dear online diary, forgive me for being late to class to tell you everything.
I feel like such a kid, taking my 12th break from my overdue psych paper. I’m tempted to skim through new fanfiction…FANFICTION!
I’m not knocking fanfiction, but the college student procrastinating for it is a tired cliche`.
…shout out to those Once Upon A Time fanfic authors who are killing it. Seriously, I can barely follow the show since it got hysterically racist, but some fan authors are really doing an awesome job making it what it could be.
Yes, I’m a nerd.
I’m so nerdy I nerd in a laboratory professionally.
I apologize for nothing.
…but my stomach is rumbling, the alarm is going off, and I still have to do my homework.
Several of my pieces have just been published in an anthology called You are Not Alone: Stories from the Frontlines of Womanhood. The anthology was inspired by the hashtag #Yesallwomen and was a collaborative effort between editor Leah Carey and ten active participants she chose from the hashtag. The book is all about the experiences of discrimination, harassment, and dehumanization that women experience just for being women. Below is the cover of the book, a video sample of one of my pieces within it, and the book’s first endorsement.
If any of you have been following my blog for a little while you might remember one of my early posts in which I described some writing I’ve been doing on the subject of Autonomy and the right to consent in all chosen collectives. I’ve been writing about these subjects on another blog called All Things Debated and on a Facebook page I made. Finally, just this last August, I self-published my second ebook and first on the subject called The Autonomous Manifesto.
The Autonomous Manifesto is a collection of my essays, rants, and poetry on the subject of autonomy. It’s free for download on Smashwords.com.
For those who don’t know, the first ebook I ever self-published is called What Makes a Mean Girl, and is a collection of poems on negative experiences in sex relations and attempts to find one’s way back to an actual connection with humanity. The poems are short and unpolished, since I mostly just wanted to know I could publish something myself. I’m also the model on the cover.
My next self-published ebook will be called What Makes a Man Eater, and will be a larger collection of poems continuing where What Makes a Mean Girl left off. It will further flesh-out the stories with more polished poetry. I’m hoping to release that anthology by this coming October.
