Good news includes all the things which make us happy or otherwise feel good. It can be personal or public. We never know when something wonderful will happen, and when it does, most people want to share it with someone. It's disappointing when nobody is there to appreciate it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our joys and pat each other on the back.

What good news have you had recently? Are you anticipating any more?

Our procrastination dindn't hurt us too badly in school thankfully. We powered through a whole bunch of writing (To the point where Jay was sort of pissed at me, for which I don't necessarily blame him)...

Our grade at week 8 was a 71. With a quiz we'd had that same week, we'd brought it to a 73, which OK passing, but only just. )Seriously only just; you need a 73 to pass the class, we had a 73.71)

...

Yesterday we found out that we'd pulled it from that to an 85 which is a B. I about cried in relief; that was the only class I had been seriously stressing; my other two...let's just say a's are a trend with us. And had we not passed that class, that was one of the ones we'd've had to retake, so I was double happy that we don't now. *relief*

My muse is still on her metaphorical skiing holiday, but at least she's sending postcards back... i.e I'm back to writing, just not anything of sustained length. [it's still too darn hot here!]

Wooord!

My problem is. I have other worlds that my people come from; and what would people think if I started writing for someone's shared one? (For which I have permission from the writer for a few things, and ideas are swirling, but nothing's been put down yet)...but I need to get past that shit. And now that school's nearly done, I might actually be able to, thank the gods. I don't think people (Present company accepted) get how seriously all-consuming school can be. >.>

But yes to the heat. And yea writing, even in short bursts

My fiancee got promoted and is being recognized for her work on all spectra. She also found out the lab she postdoc'd for isn't shutting down and she will likely be able to get a paper released from her data soon as a journal accepted her work.

I signed up to do Stomp which is taking place in Edinburgh in October and I'll also be raising money for SAMH, a mental health charity in my country.

I go back to work tomorrow after two weeks of enforced sick leave.

Well, I suppose this qualifies as good news, though it's wrapped in negative flashing negative signs for me. Haha.

I'm going to take over faculty reserves and interlibrary loan at my library, which is something I wanted. My coworker, who I considered a friend, recently retired due to an illness, which makes me really sad, but he seems happy enough having some time to do retired things, even though he still struggles with his illness.

I had to assert myself strongly to take over these duties, though, which was somewhat of a surprise because I worked closely with my coworker, and I've been doing these duties since he left, and during times when he was out. People were legitimately surprised that I wanted to do this, oddly enough. At no point did I question my competence because I'm damn good at what I do, but it was a bit of a fight because they'd already set the gears in motion for recruitment. Luckily, things were stopped just in time, and I've been given the go-ahead to taken on these duties.

Yes, it's a lateral move for me, but it puts me back to doing more library-oriented things rather than the contracts writing and budgetary things I've been doing for the past few years.

Yaaay duty take over. That sounds awesome!

Booo co-worker illness being the reason though. *hugs*

I finally got my confirmation email about going to camp this year!
My cat is getting treatment right now and will hopefully be better permanently.
A friend of mine is moving to my city soon, and a couple have moved here in the last few months. My brother seems much better. I got to see my sister a few weeks ago. But the really exciting thing is I decided last week to start publishing the Star Trek (2009) fic I've been working on in and off since 2011 and made very little progress on. I don't know if it when it'll be finished, but I've written probably ~2500 words since I decided that last week, and that's the most I've written on it at once in years. It's at http://archiveofourown.org/works/11100225 if anyone wants to read it.

Have I been I impatiently waiting to say that here since I put it on the Archive? Absolutely.

Just got a very nice black spinner ring. (It's currently serving a dual purpose as an ace ring, which is an absolute thrill for me.)

Now, I don't have to wonder what I did with my handheld fidgets every 5 seconds!

Finally have our health care sorted out. At least for as long as Medicare holds up. Still have to work on dental, vision, and long-term care insurance. Ugh! I hate paperwork.

Oh man, getting health care sorted out is definitely good news! Even with more to sort out in the future. Healthcare paperwork is a pain...I feel like there's a terrible joke in there somewhere.

Am adding tomatoes back into my diet after 15ish years of not being able to tolerate even food that had touched them and no reactions yet!

All the tomatoes will be mine!!! (eventually)

Maybe in a few months I can try bananas...

My muse decided, after quite a lot of lovely Broadway music (see all the squee in my journal of late), to speak up again. :D A shorter completed poem is still a completed poem, and there may or may not be more percolating; I can't tell quite yet.

one, two, three, four...

Recent highlights, in order of awesomeness:

I've kept up with my planned work hours for 12 of the last 13 days, and I get paid for about 2/3 of that work on Friday. I powered through several "adulting" tasks today; I've cleared all the critical-deadline stuff and have only a couple of items left in the "ASAP" queue.

Plans for a family reunion - the first one in four years - are firming up for next month. Due to vast improvements in various quality-of-life dimensions, I have every reason to expect that this one will be entirely enjoyable and without the edge of "fraught" that shadowed the 2013 occasion.

Last weekend's concerts went fairly well, and my Mom *was* able to attend, and said that she enjoyed it very much. I pulled off a couple of "March Hare" (last minute) costuming jury-rigs; one was just okay, and the other worked *really* well and got complements from others in the chorus.

We had our first overnight house guests, who took us out to dinner, then K and I had a fabulous "exploratory" rehearsal in which we picked our way through 14 songs in the course of 2-1/2 hours, and we got to enjoy their company for a couple of hours this morning before sending them on their way. It's been far too long since I've had the opportunity to work one-on-one with another Real Musician, and I'm still basking in the afterglow. :-)

ADULTING!

finalized plans to get help with some of the adulting that I haven't been able to tackle since The Great Moving Odyssey which means that one more puddle of chaos will be VANQUISHED come next Tuesday. We have a little mini vacation coming up this weekend! WOOT!
