Reasons I Didn’t Write a Blog Today

  1. My best friend was here.
  2. We ate Mexican takeout and watched Lord of the Rings.
  3. The first day back at work after a long weekend is BRUTAL.
  4. I had a headache.
  5. I got a six-paragraph long rejection letter.


I’m sorry for this cop-out. I will be back with your regularly scheduled blogging next week. In the meantime, how was your weekend?


Top 5 Blog Posts of the Past


If you haven’t been following this blog, you don’t know that I am about to move for a new teaching job, and I’m about to start a whole new phase in my life. Because of that, I don’t have much time to blog. So this blog is like when your favorite TV show is on a break and you see a rerun. It’s a rerun blog. Enjoy some of my favorite posts I have made in the past. And hopefully I will return next week!

  1. My favorite fictional love stories (Part 1/???)
  2. The stages of going to a book sale…
  3. 4 Tips for Surviving an Office

The 6 Scariest Parts About Moving

Let me preface this by saying that I am an adult. (Sometimes.) I’ve had full-time jobs, and I have lived in my own apartment. The apartment, however, was five minutes from where I grew up. I like where I grew up, so this was not a problem for me. And though I went away to college two hours away from where I grew up, I’ve never actually LIVED any distance from home. College is completely isolated and different. In three weeks, that is changing. I am moving an hour and a half for my new job. And I am scared (good scared, I think, but still scared).
