Some randomness

Hi, all.

Well, it's been a bit since I've posted. Honestly, it's pretty much because I haven't felt like posting. Why? Mostly because I got a full time job (sort of*) and haven't figured out the shifting time demands yet. Anyway, my free time now is spent writing my novel (which is moving along, although perhaps not as quickly as I wish it would), reading intermittently (at the moment it's Middlesex, by Jeffrey Eugenides - the first pick for the book club I started!), and listening to Yale Open Courses. Oh, they're awesome. Lots and lots of fun.

Notice I haven't figured out how to exercise in this new schedule yet. Also, I haven't done all those productive things I told myself I was going to do after I graduated - like completely sanitize my apartment, learn how to cook, sign up for community college classes in economics... Oh yeah - and blogging. Pretty much, I haven't been blogging that much because I've been trying to figure out how to do other things, and this time shift has pushed blogging onto the back burner, probably for the next week or so, at least. (By the way, all of you real people with your real jobs? MAJOR respect. Just so you know.)

This doesn't mean I'll be abandoning you. Blogging (although not precisely at the moment) is definitely still a priority, and my blog will not die. I insist. It's just that I've been sitting at the computer for fifteen minutes trying to make myself blog, and it just wasn't happening. So I'm going to go do something else, and come back soon. (Also, Blogfest 2010 is just around the corner. I'll be participating in that one, although I still haven't quite decided what to give away. Any suggestions? Books that simply have to be on the list?)

Fun things have been happening on the internet, even if I haven't really been around! Mockingjay happened. Paranormalcy has been shipped by Amazon. (AH! I've been dying to read it ever since I discovered the HILARIOUS Kiersten White's blog, and it is finally coming to me!) So, world - go on without me. I'll catch up soon.

* So this (sort of) job. Basically, I applied for a permanent, full time job, and was offered the position as a temp (for the time being), because for some reason there are all sorts of bureaucratic red tape that must be navigated. Which means that I have a job for the next two months (yay!), but it's not yet a permanent position (sad face). Anyway, I'm being trained as though it's a permanent job, and hopefully that'll give me a leg up when the time comes for real interviews and things... Wish me luck, everyone?
