Japan, Bender, Moving Forward

Post Image

I recently got back from a 10-day solo journey around Japan, and it was an utterly fantastic experience. I had never traveled alone internationally before, so it was definitely quite the adventure. Japan was just as beautiful as I imagined, and I feel blessed that I got to visit, and see so much in so little time. It was the [...]

Looking Ahead

I haven’t written a real post in almost six months now, so this felt extremely overdue. I have lots of exciting news to share, the first being that I am working in publishing again and I’m super excited about it.

New Perspectives

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted an entry, but I suppose that just allows me to chat more about what has happened in the months in between I last wrote. I HAVE A JOB! But in all seriousness, I said at the end of my last entry that I hoped to have a job by my next [...]

An Update from Seattle

I’ve been living in Seattle for about three months now, and I can honestly say it’s a wonderful place. I haven’t once doubted my decision to move out here. That [...]

Freedom. Summer. New Beginnings.

Hello world! So today is a pretty fun day for many reasons. It’s officially my first day off from work, as yesterday was my last day working at my publishing job. I’d been there since July of 2012. It’s so hard to believe that nearly three years have gone by. It was a good job overall, I learned a lot, [...]

Bender. BookTube. West Coast, Best Coast?

Post Image

I’m sitting at my new office in the suburbs, (my day job just recently relocated and forced me to abandon my amazing downtown view) and since I have nothing to do, and have already reached my writing goals for the day, I decided it would be a great time to post another blog update. Bender is coming along nicely, and [...]

Times, They Are A Changin’

Post Image

Hello world! I figured it was time to write another update since I have news to share, even though it isn’t really that fresh anymore. At the end of January I found out that I’ve been accepted to the NYU Summer Publishing Institute. It was so exciting to hear this news, especially since it came right before my birthday weekend [...]

A New Book, A New Job, A New City?

A little more than two months have passed since my last blog post and I feel like I’ve been so busy in the interim! Things are certainly happening and I suppose I can say that I am happy that I’ve had so much to do. The holidays were a nice time to relax some, I was able to go home [...]
