Playing Catch Up

Well, it has been a long time since you’ve heard from me!

I’m terribly sorry about that.

But I do have great news to share should you want to hear!

But we both know you’re going to hear about it anyways don’t we. *insert cheeky smile*

Two major things.

First, I finally have my masters degree!

I’ve spent two long years, directly after my four long undergrad years, directly after my thirteen years for high school, junior high school, middle school, primary school, and preschool. My life has been made up of school. That’s it.

And right now, for the first time in a long time, I have no school coming up. And quite frankly, it’s kind of scary. But at the same time, I’m ready to have a full time job. Which means a pay check. Which means benefits. Which means stability that I haven’t had in a long time.

I’m honestly very excited about this phase of my life because I get to use everything I’ve learned, but also I get to strike out on my own. I’m excited and ready to venture out and begin to build a career. I know that I’m planning on getting a doctoral degree at some point, so having some experience will be a benefit before I work towards something related to Educational Policy or something similar.

It has been a long time and I’ve worked very hard to get here.

And second, within a couple of weeks, I’m going to be a published author!

My first novel is currently at the proof stage and being read by some sample readers. Once they give their approval, and I check it over to make sure that there are no big issues with the way it looks, it’s a go. I click that the proof is okay, and it’s off to be sold on the interwebs and I instantly become an overnight success!


Well maybe not an overnight success.

Except in my own eyes of course. This is one of those things that I’ve wanted to do since I’ve been in 10th grade. So, in my eyes, I’m an overnight success. It has been one of my lifetime goals, in my short 23 years so far, that I have pursued and accomplished. So here’s to me!

Of course, I want you all to be able to read my masterpiece. Once it goes live, I’ll be posting some links here to allow for everyone to purchase them.

I want to tell you all that I’ll hopefully be writing some more posts (I think I make that promise a bit too often sometimes!). I have one that I’m still mulling over in my mind, so most likely you’ll see something posted about that particular post. I can’t give away any of those ideas just yet! For now, you’ll have to wait and enjoy what you can!
