Well, I'm doing the same thing as all of you: writing, stressing, reading. From April until the beginning of June, I mostly sat at my computer waiting for a phone call to say it was all a joke. Now, I took a job at the library so that I can read all day, and I signed up for a few graduate summer courses at my alma mater. Yesterday, I started to work on a project for one of my fall classes.
Lest anyone think I'm too productive, we still have no place to live, and no idea of what we can afford. My husband and I have no jobs lined up there, and we have no idea where our kid will go to school (because we have no place to live.) Oh, and we haven't packed one box. Not one. Unless something happens in the next 5 weeks, we're screwed.
On another note, is anyone really sad about leaving your current home? I've always had a love-hate relationship with L.A., but I'm really going to miss it. Whenever I really miss a place, it becomes the setting in all of my stories, so I expect to write a lot about L.A. in the next few months.
