Well, friends. My life has entered a very strange and perplexing phase. :faint: Unfortunately, this is neither the time or the place to disclose any details. I do hope that someday it will make for a hilarious short story though. Until then, just hope I don't experience a full-scale meltdown. 

As usual when shit hits the fan, my immune system is crashing and I've all but lost my voice today. Not sure if it's a cold I have or something more dire. My throat has been killing me for almost a week. 

The Brit is here -- in a lot of ways, it's like riding a bike. We still enjoy the same things together, there's something very calm and familiar about being with him. But some things that I hoped would change have not. I wish I had a crystal ball to tell me what to do here. We're watching Battlestar Galactica right now and a slew of films (so far I've quite enjoyed Peeping Tom, Persona, The Virgin Spring). 

I'm still waiting to hear back on the CFC and of course, all the festivals I entered my short into. CFC interviews should be sometime this month. I'm trying not to fixate on it. 

Good twist with a production company in TO that I've been in contact with -- I might have either a rewrite or story consulting gig lined up with them, but I won't know the details until later this week. My script reading for the contest in LA is all wound up and I'm just waiting on my final payment to come through. 

Work is picking up a little bit. Someone above me in seniority is going on leave so more shifts have started to open up. I may or may not take a blackjack course next month, depending on whether I hear from the CFC or not.

My mother is almost certainly moving back to Calgary in April because she hates it here. No telling what my dad will do. I think they want to end the lease soon as well. Again, dependent on the CFC thing. I'd like to experience some of the summer rush at work here though. Not to mention swimming season again. 

Ink's on hold until April when I can actually afford it. Still have the inside of my forearm left to shade and a little up top. 

Stoked for Marilyn Manson later this month -- need to get my lieu day sorted out because they booked me at work even though I requested the day off over a week ago. :faint: 

I haven't been around here at all in the last couple weeks. Tell me things!

My name's Alanna, but people here mostly know me as Snappy.
For that reason, I get a lot of people thinking I'm a man. This, I am not.

I have lived in Calgary, CAN, Vancouver, CAN, and London, UK.
I get a new tattoo every time I move to a new city. It wasn't intentional. It just ended up that way.
I intend to move to many more cities.

As you can tell by looking at my gallery, I used to do traditional and digital art, but I haven't done either in years.
I still do photography, but that is on the backburner while I focus on my writing career.

I am currently a contracted screenwriter for NGN Productions, a company in LA. I won't call myself a "professional" until they pay me on the first day of pre-production.
I have four projects in development right now, including a remake of Orson Welles' The Stranger (1946). I release updates here as I am permitted.

Feel free to add me on Facebook or Twitter! (Just let me know who you are.)…!/shadow0nthesun

I just love your HDR photos; They are very tasteful! Not the Heavily Destructive Retouching you see elsewhere.. Do you use your camera's bracketing function for them? Keep up the good work.
Snapperz Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2014   Writer
Haha, thank you, I try not to go overboard with it. 
Yes, bracketing and shot burst all the way. :nod:

Ah! Changed my name, didn't realise it wouldn't redirect automatically.
