I think it's no secret that I've been MIA over the past few months. However, I will tell you that it's not been without reason.
These past few months have been really fun, stressful, and adventurous-- but ultimately, I've been really happy with where things are going.
I'll rewind and give you a little update:
First, I've been working hard at my job. Yeah, remember my part-time copywriting gig? Well it's now turned into a full-blown, 40-hour a week thing. And I really enjoy it. I never once thought that I'd be doing this, but I'm learning new things every day, and it has really helped me explore my options as a writer.
Second, I just wrapped up my applications for Master's programs. (**winces**) I've been trying to keep word about it on the down low, because I feel like it's a long shot and I don't want to get too excited. But it's still a new chapter of life that I look forward to, regardless of whether I get in or not.
For those of you who don't know, I'm hoping to get into a program for an MFA in Creative Writing-- which would start this fall.
And third, I've been on a crazy adventure kick lately. My weekends have been jam-packed with spur-of-the-moment road trips, camping adventures, and daytrips. And I've loved every second of it.

So that's why I've been kind of out of the picture recently. And I don't really regret it (I hope you all aren't too mad at me!) I think after coming home from Barcelona, I grew into an exploring phase. I'm just seeing what's out there. It's been really great for me.
