I got the opportunity to travel to New York City last week and it was definitely one of the highlights of my year! I’ve dreamed of visiting for YEARS. So when I joined my school’s Magazine Interest Group and heard they were taking a trip to visit magazine companies in NYC, you can bet I … More A Short Summary of My New York City Trip
So I’ve been here just a little over a week. It’s crazy. I feel that I’ve settled in well. The apartment is really close to a variety of shops/stores (which is great!): Panera, Barnes and Noble, Chick-fil-A, DSW shoes, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Target, Paradise Cafe, Five Guys, Noodles and Company…I mean, seriously, there’s SO … More A Week interning in Indy: first reflections
I’m at Barnes and Noble for an extended period of time because there’s no Internet in my newly acquired apartment. I’m in Indy, btw, so YAY! It’s been a crazy couple of days, that’s for sure. Working on settling in and finding out what’s in the area. But what struck me as I was sitting … More I wish I could freeze time

Of late, I have been rather busy with the holidays and such, so I must apologize for my lack of posting. Doesn’t that sound posh. Okay, but … More What I’ve been doing all these past weeks…instead of blogging.
So, it’s the halfway point with National Novel Writing Month. You’re supposed to be at the sweet spot of 25,000 words and feeling pretty good about yourself. But I’m behind. I’m only at 14,000. Which is still a decent word count and all, but I’m determined to catch up. That’s why I just sat down … More Whoops, I’m behind again…
So a lot of you have probably heard about National Novel Writing Month. If not, you should definitely check out this link. Basically you write a novel in 30 days. The whole point is to get 50,000 words written and at the end of November you’ll have “won” Nanowrimo. And even though that sounds like … More NaNoWriMo – who’s with me?!
So true! Happens whenever I finish an excellent book!
