Pondering ways to become famous with
Okay, so fame really wouldn’t suit my personality. I’m a writer and a reader and a wallflower. I live behind a computer screen, pen, and book BUT it’s easy to get swept up in all of the glitz, glam, and beautiful people walking down the red carpet. @StevenPalumbo should be famous, he’d suit it.

My cousin is one smart cookie and I think I’m out of that nasty funk I was in yesterday and Saturday and Friday. I make things seem so much worse than they are – maybe I just like being dramatic?

Today, I’m a ball of energy and I’m ready to get things DONE! Starting with this blog post, then we’ll move on to editing my (never ending) novel, then straight to homework, and on to applying for jobs and internships – maybe I’ll get some reading in as well! I’m reading an advanced copy of The Magic of Saida by M.G. Vassanji. It comes out on September 25th! Here are my Goodreads updates so far!
Here it is – a new week and a wonderfully crisp Fall day – make the most of it!
