Another week of school almost over and I've really fallen into my routine to keep myself positive as well as to have my work done early so I have more time to myself. However, more time to myself doesn't really equate to the work on the novels I've thought of, but that's a whole other thing entirely.
Now that I've gotten further in my classes I'm really excited with the prospects of what I'm studying. For two of my classes I'm researching different aspects of skater culture. For one, I'm researching it in general in terms of communication theories while in the other I'm researching the correlation to feeling like an outcast/like you don't belong in some aspect of your life and skater culture. It's really cool to research, especially in the means that a lot more people have written about it for their thesis and dissertations than I originally thought.
Now I have more sources to go off of in the means of my own research. So that's the good part.
The bad part is that I'm contemplating leaving my writer/contributor job with S4 magazine. I love writing for it because I get to research/watch so much of it in my own free time and write articles about extreme sports (as well as any personal blog posts) as I want. But it hasn't bee the same since I started. As of late, I've had a couple of my articles put on backdraft that haven't been posted. And when my supervisor remembers to do it, she'll suddenly push them out in sequences but won't promote them to FB or Twitter. However, because she is the owner of the site and it's added accounts, those articles will be posted without a second thought.
And now she's started a new site/campaign (about teaching girls not to post/send illicit pics of themselves which I love the idea of) I'm afraid she's gonna end up focusing all of her attention on that as opposed to s4, making all of my stuff pushed back even further. I've tried emailing her to ask about it, but don't get much response.
So I'm thinking of finishing out this last month (to have 7 months of working on it) and then leaving amicably if things don't get better soon.
Back to another bright note, it's almost the weekend and I couldn't be happier! :)
Loves anything red. Rock music, playing the guitar, drawing, writing, tattoos, and sports are some of my interests and hobbies. I like to laugh, I like to think I'm funny. I talk a lot...just a warning.
