I’ve been seriously neglecting my blog for a while now, and I apologize for that. But I have good reasons.
- Dragon came home. Ze’s been home for a little over a month now, and it’s been wonderful to have hir back. I still wake up every morning wondering how I got so lucky that there’s this incredible human in my life and how in all the world we survived ten and a half months separated by 6,000 miles.
- I’ve been applying for jobs. No, seriously. We want to move to Chicago ASAP, and I have been applying for ALL THE THINGS. Yesterday I hit 110 applications since the end of April. It’s been an incredibly frustrating process, with lots of rejection letters and one canceled interview. However, it sounds like I’ve got an interview sometime next week for a job I’m really excited about at the company I really, really want to work for. So here’s hoping.
- Life has just been busy. You’d think things would have slowed down after I quit my second job and had days off again, but really, I’m somehow keeping my schedule pretty full (in large part because of all the applying for jobs). I had the incredible opportunity to put the script for The Naked I: Wide Open into book format. (I did a pretty awesome job. I’m proud of my work.) I’ve been trying to knit more, since that really dropped off when I was working 50+ hours per week. I’ve been thinking a lot about moving and organizing a new space and living with Dragon and everything that goes along with a move to a new city. I’ve lived in the Twin Cities my whole life, and while I cannot wait to get to Chicago, I’m admittedly overwhelmed, and that’s been keeping me from being very productive on the writing front (and the cleaning front, unfortunately).
I’m hoping that more writing will happen soon. I’ve been jotting down occasional ideas for posts, and I’m sure at some point there will be a more detailed discussion of my job hunt once I actually have a job.
Life is good, really. There’s a lot that’s overwhelming and unknown and that’s scary, but I have the greatest partner and the most wonderful support network anyone could ask for, so ultimately, I can’t complain. I just need to start carving out time every day to do some writing.
