Whodunit

I’ve only been able to complete NaNoWriMo once. Most of the time, I start off strong. Banging out a thousand or so words a day. But, then I have an assignment due, or work gets difficult, or I simply forget. Suddenly, it’s the middle of November and I only have 4000 words and the thoughtContinue reading “Whodunit”

Stumbling to Catch Up

So, as most of everyone knows, NaNoWriMo started six days ago. Like a dingus, just today is when I finally got around to writing. Luckily, my world-building is pretty much completed.

No flutter in the back of my mind, no knotting in my gut, no tingle that runsContinue reading “An Unwilling Addict”

Fond Farewell to Food Service

Yesterday, I put in my two weeks notice at Little India. This came on the heels of a second job proposal, a 20-hour overnight position that fits in perfectly with my first job. That being said, it’s insanity to work about 50 hours a week and try to be a waitress/delivery driver. I’ll be workingContinue reading “Fond Farewell to Food Service”

Twelve Hour Days and Making it Work

I have recently started training at my new job (I’m so glad I can finally say that!). It’s been an incredible experience, and the organization has been great at making the new hires feel welcome and supported. That’s not something I can say at every place I’ve worked. What has made this week so difficultContinue reading “Twelve Hour Days and Making it Work”
