Life Updates

So…it’s been a few months…let me catch you up on what’s been going on with me. I’ve been working on a few different projects, which meant that I had to sacrifice blogging for a bit to make things work/not burn out. The most important development (if you follow me on IG, this will be old news. And if not, it’s okay, I’ll wait…) is that I finished the first draft of my novel at the end of December. When I came back from Prague last year and was all depressed and having an existential crisis and whatnot, I made up my mind to rededicate all my time and effort to my original passion, writing. I had been writing the whole time, but I needed to make it my number one priority, which looked like sitting down every single day and writing, meeting my (very strict!) word count – even after a night of going out and drinking (-_-)- and reading in abundance.

When I was in grad school, I remember one of my professors saying to a stressed out classmate “You can either be a really good teacher and an okay student or a really good student and an okay teacher.” So applied that advice to my own situation – I could either be a really good blogger or a really good writer. When it came down to it, writing my novel was definitely way more important. So here we are.

I have some very cool writing news that I can’t give too many details about just yet, but it’s very exciting!

Last month, I got to check off my SIXTH continent by visiting Australia and New Zealand, the post for that will be coming your way soon.

In the mean time, here’s a lovely picture of the Bronx River that I took during a quaint stroll this past Sunday.
