Holy fucking fuck I knew this was coming but now that it's happening I'm FREAKING THE HELL OUT. What is this, you may ask? This is a HUGE promotion at cadets. There's three of us vying for the position of Corps Sergeant Major and I WANT THAT DAMN SPOT! I have a week to write a resume for my cadet career (and, because I'm weird like this, most likely a short essay as well) and then I have to do an interview in front of a panel of three Legion members plus our commanding officers. OH GOD THE NERVES. 

And then if I end up getting the position, THAT's a whole new set of problems as well. I've never done the CSM thing before and I'm not good at being in front of the whole corps. So yeah, that's terrifying. BUT I STILL WANT IT.

In slightly less crazy news, and to give my shift key a break, I'll also say that I've dropped out of NaNoWriMo. I know, I know, sadface. I just have too much to do between cadets and school to also devote hours a day to writing. But I'm still writing when I can, and journalling a bit (it's a wonder how putting things on paper can help you sort through them). Watch this space, there'll be something coming your way soon.

And to everyone who's still waiting for the next chapter of Run... can I just say sorry? I feel like I owe you my soul for making you wait this long. I'll get there, no doubt about that, but nothing's stuck out as a good idea and I don't want to force the story forward. Though maybe I can put another flashback in there to prove I'm still alive. Hummm...

OH AND ANOTHER THING (there goes the capslock abuse again). I'm going to Guelph to see the ever lovely solar_energie at university and attend a nerd formal with her. My level of excitement about this is somewhere around "astronomic". Gonna be a good time!

So I think that shall be it. Nothing more to say. I just needed to freak out about the CSM thing.

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you!

About being a cadet: here in Canada, we have a program called Army Cadets that's basically a youth organization/club based on the military. We meet once a week to train (which means classes and physical training... basically sports) and then we also do volunteer work on some weekends. We have ranks like the military and we get badges and medals for doing certain things.

I've been a cadet for almost exactly five years, so I'm one of the highest-ranking seniors right now. I teach classes to the newer cadets and lead a group, called a Platoon. I might be getting a big promotion this Sunday, though, which would make me the second-in-command.

I hope I did a half-decent job of explaining it... if you want to read the Wikipedia article, it'll probably do a better job of it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Canadian_Army_Cadets

Thanks for reading my humble fics, and you keep writing! I'm quite enjoying the little snippets you're supplying my Friends page with.

Much love,
Kinz
