(It's not that I haven't wanted to blog...it's just that I've lost a little bit of my mojo. And a lot of the things I want to talk about aren't really appropriate for public blogging, which is why my friends have been getting lots of long emails from me instead.)
Anyway, here's what I've been up to.
The gorgeous weather we had here this weekend. I know some people say they like seasons, but I am not one of those people. 85 degrees in February? Yes, please.
So far this month I have read these:
Now, I just recently started this:
The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. As I'm sure any of you who follow me on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram have noticed...I'm obsessed! This series has me squealing like a little girl, and it's pretty much all I want to talk or think about.
I never really considered watching it because I've never actually read Pride & Prejudice (I know, I know), but my lack of knowledge about the plot of the book hasn't hindered my enjoyment of the series AT ALL. And it doesn't hurt at all that the guys in the show are particularly yummy. You know me...I love some good eye candy. Nom nom.
|I mean...come ON.|
My very last grad school packet for my first semester. It's due at the end of the month and then I'll be finished with my first semester. I've had the pleasure of working with Susan Campbell Bartoletti on my writing since July, and she's been so incredible to work with. It will be nice to not have to worry about sending in 50 pages of essays and writing in for awhile, but I am really going to miss working with Susan. She's incredible. I've had a really fantastic first semester at Spalding, and I can't wait to see what next semester has in store for me. (Hint: It kicks off in Ireland this summer.)
My two-week long Spring Break at the beginning of April. The days on the calendar can not be crossed out fast enough. I don't have any exciting plans or anything, just...two weeks off. TWO GLORIOUS WEEKS.
I actually have only about three months left until the end of the school year. I can't even tell you how happy this makes me. *counts down*
I have a lot of wishes out there in the universe, none of which I can really talk about publicly. Some are personal, some are professional, but all are very dear to my heart, and I am just closing my eyes and wishing with all of my might that this will be the year for me in all of these things.
I've had a lot of okay and meh and alright and passable in my life over the past few years, and I'm really hoping that 2013 will be the year of awesome.
(Of course, wishing for this kind of thing without any action to back it up is pretty pointless, so of course I'm doing that, too.)
making me happy
The answer to this one never changes. I love my fuzzy boy so much...he's the light of my life.
Sorry for being so MIA, everyone. How are you all doing?
