Hello…. it’s me. I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet
to go over
Ok, ok. Enough Adele. So you may or may not have noticed that I’ve been out of the blogging game for a little while now. Well, I want back in, coach!
I’m not sure where exactly I’ll be taking this blog from here considering I’ve done VERY LITTLE (like, so little it’s embarrassing) reading, but I want to be out here writing again. I just want to write again. I want to put my thoughts and feelings about THINGS out there.
I guess I should start by telling you where I’ve been and what happened and all that. So in the fall of 2016 my relationship of 12 years ended. It was a very traumatic experience with a whole lot of fucked up shit that happened and I can’t even get into it all right now. But it happened, and it essentially broke me.
My world drastically changed and reading or blogging was just not something I could bring myself to do anymore. And I tried, you guys. I’ve tried reading like before but I still can’t do it.
Here’s what I read in 2017:
So sad, right? And two of those (Cat and House of Usher) were for school.
Oh, yeah! So I also started school in my blogging absence. I decided that teaching is what I need to be doing with my life. I’m currently working on my elementary school teaching degree with a bilingual supplement because I want to work with Spanish-speaking kids. School takes up a lot of my time, which is another reason I don’t read so much anymore. But it’s going well so far!
I have started several books and abandoned them midway… not because they were bad but because I lose interest. However, I am currently reading a manuscript of The Girl He Used to Know by Tracey Garvis-Graves and am savoring it. It’s really good so far!! It releases April 2nd, 2019.
What else has been going on?
Oh!! I got to see HAMILTON with my daughter, Abby!! It exceeded our expectations. I’d been imagining it for so long that I started crying when the first song started. lol
And my daughter REALLY loved it! She’s been a super fan for so long. She even had a Hamilton themed birthday party. hehe
What an amazing show! What an amazing cast! What an amazing night! #HamiltonHouston • Cast pictures: Austin Scott – A. Hamilton Nicholas Christopher – A. Burr (sir) Sabrina Sloan – Angelica Julia Harriman – Eliza Isa Briones – (and) Peggy Ruben Carbajal – Laurens/Philip Carvens Lissaint – (here comes the general!) Washington
I also went to Colorado for the first time ever this year and got to see REAL SNOW. I went to the Rocky Mountains and wore snow shoes, visited Red Rocks, got to play on a frozen lake, and just had an amazing time there overall. (You can check out all the other pics on my Instagram!)
And next week I’m going to see my bookish friends in New Orleans for the annual ALA conference!! We plan to conference but also sight see and eat and drink and be merry. Will you be there??
So even though 2017 SUCKED for the most part, 2018 hasn’t been all too bad so far. I think that pretty much recaps the major points. I look forward to posting here more, whether it be book related or life related.
Now tell me what’s been up with you!!
