Hey everyone! Just dropping in to let you know I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth.
- I graduated! Yay! No more textbooks (not for a long while, anyway). I got my Bachelor's of Science in Organizational Management, and I am super pleased to have some free time again.
- I haven't been reading much at all. I am re-listening to The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss on audiobook (read by Nick Podehl, one of my faves!) in preparation for recording a new podcast with my husband. The podcast's name will not be appropriate for this blog, haha. So whenever that happens, I'll be sure to let you guys know anyway, in case you're interested in listening to me and my BFF talk about books that give us all the feels. (By the way, if you're not into Audible like I am, did you know you can support your local independent bookstore by shopping for audiobooks through Libro.FM? You can check it out here (Once Upon a Time) or here (Vroman's), or wherever your local indie bookshop is.
- I am taking a ceramics class, and I love it. I don't have photos of anything because it's hard to remember to take a photo in the moment of creation... also because usually I'm just covered in clay and don't want to handle my phone. More on this soon.
- I have been knitting and sewing a lot lately. If you are interested, I often post my projects on Instagram. I am also blogging and possibly podcasting about crafts at The Make and Do Book.
- I've been listening to lots of podcasts like Criminal, My Favorite Murder, Twisted Stitches Podcast, Joy Sandwich, and 99% Invisible to get my podcasting mojo back, since it's been a really long while since I have podcasted. I might write some reviews and a guide to my favorite episodes if I can get around to it.
- I have a little bit of everything coming up soon, including an event update (because I totally missed almost all of October and November, eek!).
- I did get to see John and Hank Green on the last stop of the Turtles All the Way Down tour, with my husband and our pal David. Thanks so much to dear friend and YA author Kathy Kottaras for having the foresight to buy extra tickets! You should really check out her books.
That's it for now. Stay tuned for a YA giveaway launching just before Thanksgiving.
