HAPPY Monday

I am feeling so HAPPY today that I don’t even know where to begin!

For the first time in TWO WEEKS I made it through a whole day of work! PLUS–it is 70 degrees outside. THIS IS NOT NORMAL. Regardless, it feels really good to be semi-healthy and warm again, and I’m starting to feel motivated again to accomplish all my goals.

I’ve read so many great blogs today…but I’m always torn. I’m not sure if I want my blog to be my day to day diary filled with linkups and photos of my weekend, but I do adore the interaction all these bloggers are having with eachother. So what’s better: over-detailed diary style or only a few funny/meaningful/shocking posts?

Since I’m in such a HAPPY mood today, I’ll share 5 things I’m looking forward to this week:

1. getting to mock the bachelor this week, and read other people mocking the bachelor

2. having ENERGY again! (even if it’s not 100%, i feel so much better!)

3. READING (I’m a nerd…but I love it! blogs, books, magazines….everything! words words words!)

4. pursuing my GOALS (clean my apartment, find more writing outlets, write MORE, cross off some to-do items)

5. returning to SOCIALIZING. The end of the flu means that I can talk to people again! Yay!

Here’s what I’m reading:

And here’s what I just finished this weekend:



My first short story…online!

Hey y’all,


Today I took a giant step (for me) and published my first short story online. I’m so thrilled to share this all with you, and I hope that you’ll read and let me know what you think (eek!). 


My oh my!
