Let's Catch Up!
The beginning of the year was a bit rough. Christmas was long and I got the flu. My family experienced some personal tragedy,. but things are better now, everyone is doing really well. I graduated from college (TWICE!!!) So, I now have my Bachelor's degree in English/Creative writing with two minors in art and history. I also picked up an Associate's in general studies (who knew?) when I was finishing up some final classes at my community college. I started looking for a new job, didn't find one, went back to my old waitressing job, got bored and stressed at the same time (not a good combo). And now, I am volunteering at my local chamber of commerce (they let me write and edit anything and everything! (Yipee!)) and I just got an internship with TAHRA, a local human resource association (they too allow me to edit and write whatever I want! (Double Yipee!))
I've been reading a lot! I started Maria V. Snyder's (one of my favorite authors) second trilogy! The books are "Storm Glass," "Sea Glass," and "Spy Glass." I am loving them and recommend them to everyone. (However, you should read the first trilogy "Poison Study," "Magic Study," and "Fire Study" first. I also read her first young adult book, "Inside Out," and am waiting for "Outside In" to come in the mail. I've also tried reading more of "The Vampire Diaries" even though the show is still way better than the books (Go figure!) I also started the Immortal Instruments trilogy. That was pretty good. And I am looking forward to starting "Incarceron" which is being turned into a movie, starring Taylor Lautner (Did I ever mention that my aunt is dating his uncle?!?!?)
Sadly, I have done next to nothing with my writing :(. I've got plans though. lol.)
Anyway, that's me catching up! What have you been doing?
