Real Life {An Update}

So, apparently August is Costume Blogging Writing Month – a.k.a. CoBloWriMo – and I just learned of this fact this morning. Haha. As a huge fan of NaNoWriMo and month-long prompts, how can I pass this opportunity up??

Since today is the first day and the prompt is “Introduce Yourself,” I thought I’d give a peek at what’s been going on in my life behind the scenes. It’s been a long time since I wrote my original introductory post and a lot has changed since then. (I did just update my “About Me” page, though!)

Travel – 

Perhaps my number one goal for 2017, I resolved to travel more and have been taking every opportunity to do so. As such, this has been the summer of road trips for me! It started at the end of May, right before my birthday, when I drove all the way down to San Diego and spent a week enjoying what California has to offer. From the Redwood forest to Disneyland to Knott’s Berry Farm to the San Diego Zoo, I had an absolute blast.

 

After that came three more trips to eastern Washington, Idaho, and then a quaint Bavarian town in the mountains called Leavenworth.

 

In a couple months I’ll be setting out on my dream vacation – two weeks in Italy! You guys, I’m seriously so excited. It doesn’t seem real yet!

Work/school –

In the middle of all that, I got a promotion at work! I’m very proud of my effort in that area and have enjoyed my new position so far.

To top it all off, I decided to go back to school for my master’s degree. I graduated from university a couple years ago now and am itching to put my degree to use. Enter: Masters of Library and Information Science. I start in a couple weeks and can’t be more thrilled!

Throughout all of this, I’ve been seriously thinking about my blog and ways to share more of what I do. I have so much I want to write about and talk about and learn about that I need to actually sit down and do it {insert Shia Labeouf gif here}. What I want to get out of this month of blog prompts is practice in writing and publishing, even though what I end up with might not be perfect. At least it’ll be something!

So keep an eye out – I have some great plans!
