Or is it Wondering whilst wandering? I haven't had a rambling post in awhile, mostly just tidbits, bittids, and pictures.
I got a rejecting letter of my submission to "Warp & Weave," the Sci-Fi/Fantasy magazine at school. I was surprised, as it was one of my favorite things I've ever written. (Seducing the Seductress for those of you in BTBL.) But, I guess it was too advanced/dirty to be included in the school magazine. And to be honest, it's quite a narrow genre. It's a fantasy/comedy/sex story. Not necessarily in that order. I knew it was dirty, or at least more "adult" than my other submissions, but I've read previous issues of Warp and Weave and didn't find it worse or more mature than anything else. I'm interested in why it was passed on, but oh well. They accepted two of the weakest things I've ever written, which tells me I have a skewed opinion on my abilities as a writer.
My Ethics class is fascinating. Today we talked about the Function of Education, interesting topic, no? It reminded me of two of my favorite quotations, the first is from Mark Twain, the other is from an unknown author, meaning I am too lazy to find out or the author is too smart to accept credit.
"I have never let my schooling interfere with my education." -Mark Twain
"I had a class assignment to write 'what do you want to be when you grow up.' I wrote 'happy.' The teacher said I didn't understand the assignment. I said they didn't understand life." -Author Unknown to me.
Next week we'll be discussing Aesthetics, which I've been looking forward to since the beginning of the semester.
Digital Imaging is still a lot of fun, I'll let you know how my picturebook project progresses as it... um, progresses.
Illustration still the favorite, Finance, not so much. But, the semester is halfway over, and I already have my classes planned out for the next.
Work is finally slowing down again, which is good news for my homework.
We are starting up our book club again, the first book is "A Catcher In the Rye" which I've always wanted to read, and now I have an excuse/goal to.
As you can see if you scroll down slightly, Tracie and I have started a new fitness for life program. I'll let you know how it goes as it progresses.
Morgan is still the cutest and greatest source of aggravation and joy in our lives, just as he should be. He laughs at the weirdest things and already has an attitude when he doesn't get his way. I'll post more pics and videos on his blog when I remember to bring my memory card to school.
That's about it for now, stay tuned for more fun as always.
addendum: I don't think this merits a new post, but the other day Morgan sent a text message on my phone to an invalid number. The message?
This is probably only cute to me, but there it is anyway.
