This haphazard blog post will come to you in five parts. I had to stay away from The Blog (yes I randomly capitalize things that are of importance. Don't judge me.) last week. It was such a terrible, heart-wrenching week and I knew if I came on here to make a post it would be all emo and woe-is-me. Not cool. I won't talk about it too much because a lot is work related.

Part 1, Apartment Woes
We heard back from apartment option number two (with the awesome kitchen and pot rack), and they do not allow guinea pigs. I emailed them before we went to visit and the lady skirted around my question because she didn't want to take the time to ask her manager. Seriously, what is the deal with guinea pigs? What are these people afraid of? So, awesome kitchen is no longer an option. :( I keep telling myself that this happened because there is some other, better option out there for us, but it's hard to swallow. We're going to make an appointment with a relator to see if buying is an option for us right now (though I don't think so) or at least get a little more educated on the buying process so we can prepare better.

Part 2, Writing
How's the writing coming, you ask? Eh. I have such a hard time conveying what I'm trying to say. Like I'll have this awesome scene all worked out in my head and when I write it out it's utter garbage. Even though I've been writing my entire life, I keep telling myself it'll get better with experience and to simply write more is the answer. See? I'm at least trying to have a more positive outlook on life. That's one New Year's resolution obtained. *fist pump*

Part 3, Reading
I'm reading The Dark Divine by Bree Despain. It is dark. And divine. :) I'm really enjoying it. I love Grace's character, and who couldn't love Daniel? I'm almost done with it, but I'm putting off reading it because I don't want it to end. I'm so bad about doing that.
By the way, I've been trying SO hard to get some of the matching nail polish Bree gives away at signings. She's not coming anywhere near me, unfortunately, so if you're able to acquire an extra bottle PLEASE let me know!!

Part 4, Contests!
FYI, I should have a contest with goodies next week! :D I won't say what yet, but I am quite excited and you should be too. Be sure to check back to see what gooey-goodness I have scrounged up for you.

Part 5, My love for inanimate objects
I LOVE a good thesaurus. That is all.


  1. Lol about the thesaurus, I do too! And dictionaries! My husband thinks I'm a dork. I hope you find a new apartment soon, I just can't believe how many people don't allow guinea pigs! They are not dangerous wild animals!! Good grief!!

  2. Bree is having another signing on Feb 6th that I'm going to try and go to. If she's got nailpolish there I will get you a bottle :)
