Boy! I should've done a WAY better job at anticipating this first week at my new job being a killer! In the best way possible. I met a TON of new people from all of our locations at the leadership conference, got fully indoctrinated just by watching the example the top leaders set through the … Continue reading Woops!
If you're anything like me, you swing wildly between two ends of the spectrum. Me writing a post: This is gonna be epic. It's one of the best posts I've written to date! Me wishing anyone would view, like, or comment: What was I thinking? I'm garbage at this! Why do I bring this up? … Continue reading What if I don’t FEEL like a bookdragon?
Hi all - I got nominated for another Blogger Award! Thanks to María at Bookgraphy for the nomination. She's sweet, her blog is fun, and now I know some super cool things about her like she's from Panama and English isn't her first language which I would've never known otherwise! Rules: Thank the person who nominated … Continue reading One Lovely Blog Award
I told myself I wasn't going to geek out over arbitrary progress markers, but then Nicole from The BookWorm Drinketh re-blogged a post from Irina at I Drink and watch Anime about having plenty of good company in the "geeking out" area. So, I'm caving to my inner child that craves outward approval and celebrating. … Continue reading Yay!
So, I had an author ask me to read and review their work. Nothing major there. Here's the thing: this is the first time I've dealt with really inadequate editing. Incorrect verb conjugations, commas where periods should be, characters that are introduced without explanation of who they are; these are just a few of the … Continue reading Calling All Advice
Nicole over at The Book Worm Drinketh tagged me in this post, and it's my first one of these, so bear with me if I do it wrong! 😉 A REALLY HYPED BOOK YOU’RE NOT INTERESTED IN READING Ok, everyone get ready with their rotten fruit. I really think that Harry Potter was an amazing … Continue reading Books I’ll Probably Never Read…
Ok, so, to date, I've never re-visited a book on my blog. Especially one I posted about so recently, but I just can't help thinking about Watching Glass Shatter. That makes my book hangover for this, what... like a week so far? Not that I mind. I like thinking about characters and books. I feel … Continue reading Book Inspired Musings
"No one told me that." I could feel myself hyperventilating. With this many people around, I seriously needed to lock it down. "I guess we all thought you knew." Sarah's voice was calm and low. She, too, seemed all too aware of our surroundings, and I couldn't be more grateful. "Abbie, you had to know … Continue reading Lost in Love
I can't believe it. I was kissing Charlie Rose. The Charlie Rose. The Charlie Rose of the It Could Only Be You number one hit from the radio. The Charlie Rose I was screaming at while he sang on stage just an hour ago. The Charlie Rose that noticed me out of thousands of people in the crowd and pulled me … Continue reading Work in Progress…
So, maybe it's the holidays, or the natural reflection the new year brings, but I woke up today feeling full of gratitude. I can't tell you how much time in my life I've spent feeling different. In school, I played the cello. Carrying around an instrument the size of you (and taking it very seriously … Continue reading I actually feel like I belong for once…
