Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog, I am glad you are here. For the most part, I use this to comment (and sometimes ramble...) about the many things I love or perhaps am fascinated with this week. This can include quite an assortment of topics, including my propensity for reading novels at all hours of the day, writing, art, and travel, as I do have a serious case of Wanderlust.

Super Fast Update!

Sorry once again for my lack of blogging. I have been writing, however, and I have been reading up a storm, so for me that is at least a little bit of a reasonable excuse.

Things I am working on at the moment -- 26th birthday plans (all downhill from here... haha) and also getting together my bar trivia team! We are all still stuck (read: indecisive) about the team name. I want something funny and perhaps involving puns, and we just can't decide on one. If you have any ideas, please feel free to share and they can go into the voting... if we ever get that far, that is.

And speaking of all the great books I have been reading.... holy smokes. I love when an author does a great Alpha Male (ala Lori Foster, for example...), yummy.

Hmmm... I think that is all for now. I am swirling in new ideas for future novels as well, as always I wish I had a giant pause button -or- there were more hours in a day!

Goals

So, as money is tight right now as I continue to pay off student loans, fix my car, etc etc... I have been so discouraged about this for some time now. Some serious down in the dumps with no end in sight feelings of misery. And frankly I am tired of it.

Yes, this is not where I thought I would be at (almost) 26, but it is what it is, and while I can't change things that have already happened, I can adapt to what is going on now and make the best of it, right?

So, how about setting some goals to hopefully get me out of this rut.

I decided long ago that I would like to travel as much as I can, as often as possible (is that redundant? I can't decide...). Clearly budgetary issues to come in to play here, so while I have this wanderlust coursing through my veins, I cannot act on it presently.

This is where the goal comes in. In a little over 4 years, I will be 30 (ahhhhhhhh!!!!)... For my 30th birthday celebration, I am going on a trip. A nice big one, hopefully with Scotland included (obviously). Perhaps this will be the time where I explore the rest of the British Isles that I have so longed to do, but I think my beloved Scotland would be a given, right?

Now this gives me some focus I think, something to look forward to, and something to put some energy towards.

I can already feel the storm clouds clearing outta my head...
