Okay, so I failed at my resolution to write a review this week, but it's a new month and I have high hopes for myself. I've been pretty bored by my own writing lately--I feel like the spark is gone. I just kind of ramble. I guess I've been reading without really thinking about it very much lately. Not sure how to shake that off--I'm not sure "be funny and lighthearted" is something you can brute force. Advice welcome.
But, as for some things to be happy about this week: there are many.
1) Started my new job. I work in a library! And it's lovely! I still feel like a foolish simpleton because I can't do three things at once, but I know I'll learn, so that's okay. Which is weird on its own; usually I feel like I'll NEVER learn and everything is HOPELESS. But I really like some of my new coworkers, which is just lovely.
2) Adam's ninth birthday party was today, and I think the kids had fun, and I know we all made it through alive. Plus, hours spent cleaning ahead of the party and the house actually looks pretty nice after sweeping up all the popcorn and crumbs.
3) Hugely successful book sale yesterday; go Friends of the MPL! It was fun and relaxing and so nice to just chill with Tamar and Sarah and Jan, help folks out, be in my place with my people doing my thing.
4) It is an incredible month for fanfiction; I am following new fics that are posting weekly on all different days so my list is PACKED, and I'm so enjoying chatting with some authors I love on a forum and it just makes me feel love for the world.
There's so much more--a friend is in town for THREE WEEKS, which will be amazing, and my sister's coming to help me purge the craft cabinet this week, which gives me hope for my future.
And maybe this week I'll finally review a book or two!
