Personal Digest Saturday: April 19 – April 25

Life news this week:
  • I got my edits back from my publisher, and since my contract says I only get ten days to address the edits, I thought it was best to jump right in! I completed the edits on Thursday.

  • I rewrote an article about asexuality, making it longer because the editor requested that I do so. It ended up about 2500 words (more than twice the original length), and it was accepted. Yay, it will be published, though I don't know when.

  • It was Administrative Professionals' Week, so my boss got me a nice card and everyone at the office signed it. And I got a gift card too. Awww!

  • I helped my mom with moving some things in her house, which was hard work but also fun. I made a disastrous batch of couscous to eat at her house and I hope she doesn't hate couscous now because of me.

  • I got all the stuff together for my sister Lindsay's bridal shower gifts. It was a lot of fun collecting the stuff for it--I'll have to write about it next week when I have pictures from the event!

  • I had to work extra hours at the day job this week because of proposals all due at the same time. Normally I am asked to limit my hours to 28 a week, but this week I worked 38 and a half. Coming in in the morning is tiring and I didn't get much sleep!

  • I finally put my entire to-read list on my Goodreads author account, though I'm nowhere near done adding my reviews to it. You should follow me.

  • Ate at Red Elephant with Jeaux on Wednesday, and we watched two episodes of Orphan Black.

  • Met an online friend, Jimmy, to whom I've been talking for about a year. We finally met up and had Chili's food and talked about everything. I also got to spend gift certificates at Barnes & Noble--bought three new books!

  • I was apparently not famous enough this week to be featured anywhere. ;)
