I Don’t Want to Read That…

Dont Want to Read That

(PLUS – An explanation of why I have been MIA!)

As much as I pretend that reading and writing are my adult job and therefore nothing else matters – sadly that isn’t the truth. I do have an adult job that I am expected to wake up early and show up to at least 5 days a week.

Ridiculous

This information is relevant to this post because earlier this year, a wizard eviler than I am captured my brain and bewitched me into thinking that pursuing a certification at work would be a good idea. I spent four days in April at a training, and then had 60 days to study and sit for my certification exam. First important thing to note is that I have not had to study for anything in about 7 years, so obviously… PANIC. Second important thing to note is that I was provided with an 834 page non-fiction educational book to assist with my studying. That is A LOT of pages. Even as a lover of words, that is A LOT OF WORDS. Furthermore, that is a lot of words that I DO NOT PARTICULARLY CARE TO READ BECAUSE IT’S NOT ABOUT MAGIC, OR WARRIORS, OR LOVE, OR ANYTHING FUN, so NOPE.

I’m Still Here – I Promise!

Though it quite seems like I’ve completely disappeared – I promise you that I’m still here! A busy life schedule and annoying demands for work have put me on a bit of an unplanned hiatus for the past few weeks. Come next week, things should FINALLY calm down, and I can get back into my normal routine of blogging, reading (my reading has suffered, so, so much – biggest sad face ever), and not particularly caring about my adult job. Just wanted to take a minute to let everyone know that, and to say…

I'll Be Back

Talk to you all very, very soon!

I Went Rogue in the Bookstore…

Being Spontaneous

Last week, I did something a little bit C R A Z Y. I am a self-proclaimed time freak that is habitually early 100% of the time. Therefore, it should shock no one that I was 45 minutes early for an appointment. It should also shock no one that I decided to spend this extra time browsing around the super conveniently located Barnes and Noble right down the road instead of napping in my car to make up for my early wake up time to get to my 6 am Bikram Yoga class.
