As a Community Volunteer, me and the others feature art we particularly enjoyed here daily. They're called Daily Deviations. :heart:
I do this for the Literature gallery and so if you read something you like or wrote something you're proud of you should send it to me via note so I can read it!

Daily Deviations, they're a thing, and I do them too.

One Month In

Fri Jun 26, 2015, 12:51 AM by TheMaidenInBlack:iconthemaideninblack:
June was a bit of a New Year's moment for me, for two reasons - moving to the US, and becoming a CV. :giggle: so I find myself here, now, a month after getting to the States and a month after becoming a Literature Community Volunteer and it feels like I need to make a balance of things, like when you do after a month into the new year to check on the resolutions you've made.

(or maybe no one does that because no one wants to see how badly they sucked at their New Year resolutions. Am I the only one who sucks at that? I'm best at everyday resolutions. The goal is more in mind than not)

As far as moving goes...

June has been a difficult month, but also a good one on many sides. Family/friends wise, leaving my country was hard: I'll never forget what my mother told me when we were hugging at the airport, my father didn't come to see me off, and I really miss my dog. She's not exactly "mine", it's the family's dog, but I have a huge bond with her. And she's old, so the question "will I see her again?" creeps up on me sometimes. it's a fresh wound, and I still can't think about it all without feeling all the feels. So I'm dropping the subject and going to more cheerful stuff. :lol:

On the flipside - I've been loving it here. Granted, I don't know anyone, but the neighbourhood is nice, the town is green and full of trees, close to the mountains, and everything (such as stores) is close. Even the Social Security Office, which I found out last week when I had one of those OMG EMERGENCY moments. :giggle: maybe it's because it's been so sunny and hot, and sunlight is therapeutic on many levels, or because it's just peaceful and I've been busy with DA things and crazy DA people and just being with my husband, but I'm liking it here and although it feels "foreign" still, it doesn't feel alien or unwelcoming. So all in all, I'll be fine.

Another flipside is that I found a job. :D I'll be starting on Monday and it's going to be quite the adventure, I'm sure -- COMMUTING TO WORK ON MY OWN AAA -- but I needed it; it will help me integrate, fill up my day so i won't be alone most of it (not that I mind, alone time is good, but it's not what I should be doing right now in a new country and all that), and it will bring money in. Which, since my laptop just decided that it couldn't hold on a few weeks longer, will be needed; especially when you've been eyeing this ultrathin ASUS laptop/ultrabook kind of thing. :') god, these things are expensive, it makes me cry. At least I can use my husband's laptop or desktop until I can get a new one...

The bad side of having a full-time job is that I don't know how much time it will leave me for DA (I never had a "normal" job with normal working hours until now, so I literally have no idea - though it can't be worse than how it was before, and I could always keep my DA fairly active), nor for my husband. :XD: I'll work from 9 to 3 and later, from 7 to 3 -- and he works from 12 to 8. So we won't have much time together during weekdays, which is sad. But what can we do, adulthood. :no:

As far as CVness goes

Well, I have the best team of ladies around me. Lisa, Lili and Stephany are great! :D And I'm pretty happy with how I've been doing so far, the DDs I've been setting - WHICH YOU COULD REALLY CHECK OUT EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, LIT IS GOOD TOO - and the CR team. They are lots of fun and I'm getting to know tons of new people (and names :faint:), plus bond with the oldies I already knew.

As a CV, I haven't done a lot (yet) except setting DDs and being active with comments on stuff I read while hunting for said DDs. But it's just the start of my term and I've been juggling a few things for a few different groups, so new things will come once these things settle down a little. (: cauldron's brewing!

PS: if you as DA Lit community member have something you'd like to see from us Lit CVs, that we aren't doing, you let us know. :D all of us writers will be pretty busy, I expect, with Flash Fiction Month and Camp NaNoWriMo, but that's only for July!

What about you?

How are you all doing? And would you like me to feature random writing I find while on my DA hunts, in my journals? I think I'd like that. Would be fun.

Your friendly - but a bit of a troll, admittedly - next-door neighbour. I love cookies, gaming, Magic:the Gathering and anime; I love silence, music and nature; I love long walks, being lazy, I love silly things like earrings, jeans and nail polish (and I have tons of them all, beware). I love experimenting with my hair because let's admit it, it always grows back eventually.
I love smiles, cold weather, and I love when my toes are warm next to the fire. I love reading, writing, and improving my English thanks to both of those; I love #thewrittenrevolution and all that it lets me to for the community, I love the happiness it gives me.
I love the friends I have made, and those that I will make tomorrow. I love you.

:la: if you like Magic - the Gathering (I know this, because my brother used to play it a loooot), you might like Hearthstone (computergame by Blizzard)...
Ever heard of that?

Edit: Ah, but no computer-games for you... too bad :D - maybe on the tablet? (even though my boyfriend says it sucks because of so many laaaags !!!)
