Interestingly enough, I've more job-related stuff to write about. I've also applied for umpteenth time for a job at the National Archives. It was always a total long-shot since it's a management position. The director of the National Archives seems to be stepping up his game with sending out information to the applicants. So yesterday I got an email with the number of applicants and their names. And therefore I know right away that I totally shouldn't get my hope up because among the applicants is the person who currently has this position (so I'm guessing this is like a re-organization thing) and a lady whose been working there for years and has a PhD in archival sciences (and she taught a course on archives back when I studied history).

I can tell you that, despite my deadlines, today was dedicated to the Glee Finale. I cried, I laughted. I wrote about it here. I also participated in a thing on tumblr and wrote about Glee and the fandom here.

And for the people who liked Glee when it began but stopped watching, you should check out the first half of the finale (at least).

I think I'm having some kind of job-related existential crisis. I ended up not bothering filling out an application for that head teacher job at the pre-school near my house and I'm currently coming up with all kinds of excuses not apply for a history teacher position. You know, a similar position to the one I threw a great hissy fit last year when I didn't get it.

What's going on with me?

Am I getting old and afraid of change? Am I thinking "better the devil I know than the devil I don't"?

Maybe it's just getting closer to the "Hildi needs a vacation" time of the year. And I say this despite the three day long weekend I'm currently enjoying and it has been enjoyable, with a party and loads of lazing about.

I think the first order of business to is wish you all a Happy New Year.

The start of the year has been pretty uneventful so far except I had half the day off at work today and that was pretty damn nice.

And now I can finally start to reveal some of the things I've been writing. Yes, apparently I still retain the ability to write even though I was starting to despair that I might have lost it.

So for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide this year I wrote the following:

Putting It in the Hands of the Co-Pilot (1314 words) for Mallory Klohn
Fandom: Queer as Folk (UK)
Rating: Not rated
Warnings: No warnings
Relationship: Stuart Alan Jones/Vince Tyler
Summary: "Where to next?" Stuart asks, looking over at Vince in the passenger seat

I got a rather open prompt so I decided to mull things over a bit and see what wanted to burst forth. I had few ideas and they had all one thing in common, Vince being insecure about their relationship. So what I ended up writing, was really a conversation between Stuart and Vince about exactly that. The basic idea concentrated.

I'm pretty happy with it and I'm surprised how easily it came to me when I started writing it. Normally it takes a while for me to get into writing my Yuletide fics.

And a big thank you to andbless_mybaby for writing me that gorgeous American Horror Story fic, the after hours.
