1) My husband's surgery is over, and he's fine. The recovery is going well. Feels more like we're playing hooky than anything else. We watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off this morning, and then took a walk to Humbolt Park and back. Walked past Clemente High School as it was letting out, and marveled at all the cop cars lining the street, trying to intimidate the kids into good behavior. Okay, so it wasn't the Art Institute, or a parade on Michigan Ave., but it's a beautiful day and I love this city.

2) I turned in my application to grad school yesterday morning. I'm done with the GRE, done with my application...I submitted my FAFSA application, and now I just need to apply for scholarships. My husband feels confident I'll be accepted, and oh my god I hope he's right, but I'm not taking anything for granted.

3) Fandom, yay! I've been listening to a lot of podfic on my way to and from work this winter. There hasn't been much snow in the city, and I could've been riding my bike more often than not, but I chose to walk so that I could listen to stories about Sam, Dean, and Castiel.

I bought In The Hunt to read after my application was in, and I'm on the third essay. I'm just happy to be indulging my fannishness. Happiness is a warm Winchester. Or something like that.

4) I really want to record some podfic. Maybe I'll start writing my own, and maybe I won't. Maybe I'll be a beta, but I'm reluctant to commit. I'm really super socially awkward, and I want to take it slow.

Time to reach out and actually talk to someone. Wish me luck.

I'm glad to hear your husband's fine, and am glad you're dipping a toe into fandom (in a social sense). My little corner of fandom seems pretty wank-free most of the time, and I adore the people I've met.

Podfic recording is a great way to get started, I think. It's a labor of love, a fanwork of a fanwork, and a great service for those of us who have hideously long commutes. (I love that it's encouraged you to walk.)
