I know I've not been posting much recently, but I promised myself I would post today. So have a big long update. :p

i. First, Remix! The fic I received was Full of Grace (the human wisdom remix) by NEStar, West Wing, a remix of "All Human Wisdom." It's Josh-centric and about his relationships with some of the women in his life, so of course I loved it. What's funny is that the person last year remixed the same fic, but in a very different way. It's really, really interesting to see what two different people will do with the same fic.

I wrote The Camera Steals Your Soul (The Leading by Example Remix), Narnia, Susan-centric Pevensie sibling gen. I really enjoyed remixing this one. I knew as soon as I read the fic how I would remix the story, and I ended up quite happy with it.

That was the only fic I wrote for Remix this year. I wasn't quick enough for a pinch hit and nothing in Remix Madness really called to me with the amount of time I really had. That week happened to be the week of my Legal Research and Writing final brief. Speaking of...

ii. Law school! It's exams season. My exams are all on Tuesday and Friday this week and next. I'm...sort of having a hard time caring? I mean, my first one this Tuesday is the only in-class exam -- all the others are take-homes where I'll have an extra five hours to spend on them. Of course I've been studying, but I'm not really stressing about it. I've been far more interested in making up a schedule for next year. XD

What really makes me excited is that I got into the legal clinic I wanted for next spring. It's called the International Women's Human Rights Clinic, and from what I understand, what I'll be doing is in-depth research on another country's laws regarding women, actually going to that country during spring break for fact-finding, and then writing a report on our findings. There might be some drafting legislation in there too. It's going to be so cool! And speaking of other countries...

iii. Uganda! I need to send in my visa application this week, but otherwise I'm pretty on track. I am so looking forward to this. I can't believe I'm going to be spending three months in Africa, working on human rights. Wow.

iv. Okay, so...how do people find places to live that are not student housing? XD I've only ever lived with my parents or in dorms, but I need to find a place for next year. It's complicated by me not being in the country for the summer, so my parents are on my case about doing it now. I've just never done it before, and don't really know how it works. Hmm. I think I might just check out one of the apartment complexes nearby.

v. Writing! I've been doing it. I finished another fic in the Start Infinity Again series -- the planned final fic, in fact. That means it's not going to see the light of day for a long time, and it's probably going to change a lot between now and when I can finally post it, but it's a big relief to have it done. It ended up about 9000 words, and I actually still quite like it. :p

Now this means that I only have two more stories I have to write in order for this to feel like a complete and coherent universe. Both stories are chaptered with plot, so I'm probably going to have to save writing them for this summer. I don't anticipate having regular internet access at home, so that will leave me with little to do but write. :p

Also, I signed up for [profile] ksbigbang. My second Big Bang! My story is fleshing itself out in my head more -- I know the basic plot trajectory of the story, and last night I thought up several key scenes. Once I've got all the scenes basically plotted out, I can start writing, and it will go a lot quicker.

Hmm, think that's about it for now. I'm...going to try to be better about updating. :p
