Turkey/Crunch Time/Dear God

Is school over yet?  Jesus.
I have a mere two weeks to "finish" my novel.  (This is my own goal, my advisor said it doesn't need to be finished but I feel silly turning in a half-written novel as a final project!)
I also have to write two completely ridiculous papers about writing. This all explains why my updates have been few and far between.

Yeah, writing about writing.  I think that is my new least favorite topic.

I hope everyone had a lovely Turkey Day.  I had a five day weekend or something like that, and it was pretty sweet.  I also overdid it on Black Friday (it's ridiculous long it takes to make money and how quickly it can be spent!) but I got most of my gift buying done...plus I have two new pairs of boots and some awesome new headphones for work.  I'd been eyeing them and they were $20 off...I had to.

In other news, today was (literally) Alison appreciation day at work.  And yesterday I wrote the new tag line for the company, which gets me a $100 bonus check.  I'm pretty pumped about that, mostly because um, I wrote a company tag line!  How awesome am I?

Things are good, but all in all I am so ready to be done with school.  People keep asking me if I'm planning on grad school and I just laugh at them.  145 days until I have a diploma in my hand, and I'm running away after that and never looking back.

Unless I decide to teach creative writing someday, that is.  In which case I'll, y'know, work in a school. But I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.  For now, I'm excited about all the books I'm going to read and the TV shows I'm going to knock out of my Netflix queue once school is done!

Any recommendations on either front?

At risk of sounding hipster...I liked Dr. Who before it was cool. Haha! One of my exes and I watched the first (2005) season before BBC America even picked it up. We were really hardcore. I'm caught up with it so far.

I also loovvvveeee AHS but am usually 1 episode behind because my bf DVRs it for me.

I'm iffy about Sherlock and HIMYM because they are so over fandom-ed (is that a word?) and shit like that just turns me off completely if I see it. But I might give the others a try. And I haven't heard of the books so I'll look for those too!! Thanks!
