Some RL stuff, some procrastination, and some hopes of showing off teh writing skillz

I've got a job. Two of them, actually. I still have to go through some rigmarole with Human Resources (background check, drug test, that sort of thing), but I should be able to start working in about two weeks. It's at a medical office, doing medical records and other things to help take a load off the spread-thin nurses. It's exactly the sort of thing I was looking for, so I am pleased. My second job is tutoring students at the nearby community college. My paperwork for that is done, but I haven't been assigned any students, and probably won't get many until the fall. In any case, I am no longer unemployed, praise God! That is a huge load off my mind. And I promised myself I would look into getting a paid LJ account once I started getting paychecks again. So tell me, paid users, is it worth it?

I am starting to feel a bit worried about getting into nursing school. Admissions to FSU's School of Nursing are just so competitive right now...*sigh* And I won't know anything until fall, possibly not until as late as November. :(

Part II of "Does Harry Have to Die?" is almost done. I should have it ready to post in the next couple of days. Yes, I am a procrastinator. So sue me. I'm trying to make Part II not quite so dry as Part I was. Looking back, I realized that it might have been somewhat difficult to read. Sorry 'bout that.

Speaking of essays, I was cleaning out my filebox, and I came across an old file of papers I wrote for classes while in college. Some of them are pretty dry and academic, but others are quite interesting, I think, especially those I did for my Psych classes, and extra-specially those I did for Human Sexuality. It occurred to me that I might post some of these papers here on my LJ. Unfortunately, the computer files for almost everything I wrote while at Stetson have been lost (a long and sad story), so I would have to type them up from my hard copies. Hence, in the interest of time, I have to be choosy about which of them I type up and post. Anyway, I was thinking if I get a paid account, I might put up a poll with descriptions of each of those papers I think people might be interested in reading, and find out which of them, if any, you would actually read.

Part of the reason I want to do this is because I feel that my LJ so far hasn’t really been all that deep or interesting, and that the quality of writing in my entries has been a little low according to my standards. As I was looking back through my old papers, I just noticed, that, wow, even though I do a lot of writing on LJ and discussion boards, it’s almost never as good as some of the papers I did for school. Doesn’t that seem weird? I mean, for school I wrote what I was required to write about, you know? Here I can write whatever I want to write. It seems like higher-quality writing should occur when I write what I choose to write, rather than what I’m “forced” to write.

Anyway, the point is this: some of those papers are a lot better than anything I’ve written here so far is, and I want to show off. :D

Well, I suppose I should quit now, and go to bed. Two weeks until new job starts = two weeks to get back in the habit of a normal sleep schedule.
