So, I’m trying to think about what April is going to look like.  I mean, I’ve got classwork to do–including a research paper based on the transcripts of the interviews everyone in class did last/this week–but on top of that other stuff is going on.

There’s Camp NaNo, which I’ve been thinking about doing.  It’s like NaNoWriMo, only you can set your own word goal.  And there’s these things called cabins, that I’m still not sure how they work and all.  I’ll find out today, probably; I think the next batch of cabin assignments was today.  Anyway, yeah, so I’m probably doing that, but with a smaller word goal, and just trying to get myself to actually, you know, write something.  Because lately I haven’t done any writing on any of my myriad projects.  They’ve all just been sitting there gathering electronic dust while I play Project Diva or Persona Q or whatever else I might happen to be doing.  (Like blogging.  Or spending hours on Amazon just looking at (pictures of) things I can’t afford to buy.  Or sometimes doing my homework.)

And then there’s the Blogging A-to-Z challenge, which I kind of want to do.  I calculated out what each day’s letter would be, and it looked like H fell on a Thurdsay, which seemed like the hand of fate, since I’m supposed to be working on the life of Heracles in my Thursday myths.  But…I dunno.  It might be more work than I’m expecting to try to come up with something pertinent to the right letter on the right day.  I mean, some letters are easy:  A is for Aias, P is for Patroclos, T is for Teukros.  But some others, not so much.   Z?  I don’t have a blog-post’s worth of things to say about Zephyros.  I suppose I could go off-topic and talk about Zygons…

I think I have to sit down and make a chart of the life of Heracles–and in some cases how it intersects with other major mythic cycles–before I can figure out if I want to do the A-to-Z challenge or not.  (Or, for that matter, just how I want to proceed with his story in general.  His life is very complicated, because there were so many tales, and so many variant versions.)  ‘Tain’t April yet, so I still have a little while to decide if I’m gonna do it or not.

And then, of course, there’s the fact that Etrian Mystery Dungeon comes out on…I think it’s the 7th?  So in addition to a whole new game to play (like I’ve finished all the ones I’ve already got?) I want to be finished with Persona Q by then.  Especially since Devil Survivor 2’s 3DS remastered version is coming out towards the end of April, and Project Mirai is coming out in May.  (My 3DS might melt down from the overuse…)

Oh, and of course I also have to sign up for next semester’s classes, but that’s the easy part, since I already know what I’m going to take.  The hard part is figuring out if I want to go knocking on doors to find out about the way to get the summer German classes at the more expensive university at my own university’s tuition rate, or if I wanna just swallow my pride and ask my parents to pay the ludicrously high tuition.  Or if I want to put it off a year.  That’s always an option, too.
