I'm going through a thing... we'll call it "insanity." It takes me 7 days to adjust to any major changes in my life - good or bad. I'm on day 2, and I'm still deep in the crazies.
I'm now a full-time author. No day job. Just writing. This is awesome, terrifying, humbling, and completely surreal. It's both unexpected and expected.
This is a quote from my Myspace page (which I wouldn't recommend visiting, cause it's old and dead) from April 27, 2009:
The other day, I was in the car, and it was beautiful and I was listening to something on the radio, and I thought, “Wait. This is what life is going to be like.” And I was very excited. Because my life won’t always be winter. Someday, it will be different than this. And it will be very exciting.
And today, it was gorgeous out, and I was driving home from my friend Kalli's house listening to Motion City Soundtrack, and I thought, rather startling, "This is my life. This is what it's going to be like from now on."
It was very surreal.
Anyway - I haven't answered an email all weekend, but I'll be replying to them all tomorrow. I needed a couple days off to celebrate/cope. Life is scary and strange, and I've learned that nothing is impossible.
