*Peeks in* *waves*

So. Um. Hi there. Yeah, I've been kind of MIA lately.

But lots of things have been happening!

First, I graduated with my MA in English. Which of course was preceded by the insanity of finishing my last 20 page paper, finals, and last thesis revisions.
After the hooding ceremony with Dad, Mum, and Naomi
I am kind of in love with my thesis which I wrote on my favorite author of all time: L.M. Montgomery and her Emily trilogy specifically and I got to write about houses and appropriated space and kuntslerroman and it was fun and fabulous and I think I am going to see about working it into an article and see if I can get it published!

And my sister came home for the summer and that has been uber fun as we've caught up on stuff together and caught up on our Doctor Who and Vampire Diaries and stuff together :D
Because this is super important.
Obviously.
Plus I started working more hours at the bookstore and I have some really good Retail Wednesday stories.

BUT

I have been feeling so uninspired to post anything and I have no idea why. And I know I said I wasn't going to apologize for not being around. so I'm not doing that. I'm just saying that I'm still alive and I'm still around

AND

I'm setting up a schedule for myself each week once I get my work schedule so I will actually do things like work on my WIP and sort through some of the stuff in my room and I will definitely schedule in some bloggy time.

OH! And I'm going to BEA next week with Naomi and Jenn N from our Booksellers Without Borders NY blog and I'm so excited because I get to go all three days this time and there will be BOOKS and maybe MAYBE I will pick up one or two for you guys?
And I ordered my very first business cards
to take with me to BEA with this logo that I designed!
I'm so fancy :D
We are definitely going to be doing some giveaways on our BWoB blog so I will keep you apprised and all of that.

What about you? Any fun stuff planned for the summer?
