I've been missing more blog days than I like to lately, but there are reasons for this! Very good, very reasonable reasons! Number one, this past week was finals and I was very busy studying and working on projects and basically being such a tired, worn-out mess that the guy at Staples actually told me that I looked tired and worn-out. You know it's bad when strangers are telling you this. However, since finals have ended I have slept! Which was wonderful!
But also I'm graduating with my Associate's Degree this semester (woo! go me!) and I keep insisting that it's really not a big deal because I'm not done with college or anything (though I am incredibly tired of it and taking a break before I get my BA and teaching certificate), but I've been thinking about it more and honestly honestly honestly I'm kind of proud of myself. I realize that a lot of people my age are close to getting their BAs and some are off to grad school etc etc etc, but I am not them and it has been hard work getting my degree. There have been many freak outs and panicking and angsting over the fact that my grades are never as good as I want them to be and school makes me feel really really stupid and I often don't like it and and and... it's just been a long time. And a lot of really hard work. And I'm super proud and kind of relieved that it's over and omg you guys I actually did it. Personally, I'm amazed.
So now my grandparents are coming up for a visit and to go to my graduation (win!) so I'm going to be spending a lot of time with them this next week and I'm going to try to schedule a few blog posts, but I'm definitely going to be a bit scarce around these parts.
Oh, and I'm also writing/querying/writing/editing, which is taking time and brainpower and emotions and everything else.
