There have been big changes around here! I originally started to slack with my posts here while I was interning for Urban Craft Uprising, the best and most awesome craft show that just so happens to be in Seattle. My primary duty was to post vendor and author interviews on their blog and facilitate giveaways. The closer to the show we got, the busier I was. Then, I worked 29 hours over three days while the show was going in (in addition to 40 hours at my regular job!). It was awesome and fun but lots of hard work.
I also shot my sister-in-law’s wedding. It was a blast and while I wouldn’t want to be a wedding photographer for a living, I would consider doing the odd wedding here and there for those who are looking to pay practically nothing for some pictures.
I’ve also been reading books and listening to audio books like it’s my job. Thankfully, even thought I haven’t been posting, I have still been reviewing books and taking pictures so I can jump right back in.
I started a Ladies Comic Book Club and we just had our second meeting. Five people came to the first meeting, eight to the second, and I am really proud of and happy with myself for getting something like this together. I had a need (people to talk about comics with) and I made it happen. And I want to do more… any artists starting out looking for collaboration with a writer? 🙂 Or any other book or comic related things? Podcasts? Guest posts? Reviews? Meow?
Writing I have been! Okay, I was tired of starting the previous three paragraphs with “I” so I changed it up a bit. I listened to The Handmaid’s Tale then Red Rising and they are both really powerful, motivating books that made me feel the things. Books, in addition to…. GETTING A NEW JOB, have led me to bake, write, and generally be in a great mood. That’s right! After three years of being absolutely miserable I no longer have to deal with the things that made me so. I am forever leaving the world of insurance behind and entering into the medical world where I will be in an office mostly by myself all day. This makes me very happy.
Currently listening to: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
Currently Reading: October Faction, Volume 1 and Julia Child, My Life in France (dear god this is torture but I am determined to finish it.)
Oh, and for the title? I bought a new calendar today and while going through my old one I found that I had written this quote at the beginning of this year. I had no idea…
