Personal Digest Saturday: February 21 – February 27

Life news this week: 
  • Went to Drink and Draw on Saturday! Got to see all my old artist friends and hang out. It was great to chill with Eric again, though as usual Gary's presence was a horrifying experience that I was forced to tolerate. *gigglesnort*
  • Sunday night/Monday morning obviously I was in the hospital, so. That was fun. I didn't actually spend very long in the emergency room and I didn't get admitted. Then I went to the doctor for a follow-up on Thursday and got a referral to a cardiologist so I have to do that next week. None of it is fun. Boo.
  • Finished one more chapter in the midst of all this nonsense. Good for me.
  • Got another article published, this time in Drunk Monkeys. It's called "Asexual, Aromantic, Partnerless, Childless - and Happy."
  • I processed a new video for my writing channel, which I filmed the week before but didn't put together until this week. It was about what agents can do for you besides sell your book.
  • Jeaux Day involved eating burritos at Moe's. We didn't really do anything after that--just chatted about Internet stuff and amused ourselves.
  • Mommy was a big help all week. She took me to the emergency room on Monday morning, but also drove me to work on Tuesday and home, and we ate at Sweet Tomatoes that night--and then she came over AGAIN on Friday with comfort food because I had a terrible day.
  • This was honestly one of the worst weeks I've had in a long time, and not just because of the health stuff--I also dealt with some huge disappointments related to writing stuff, and it's taking a lot out of me. Anyone who reads this, please be gentle with me in the immediate future. Thanks.
New reviews of my book:
              • Nobody this week. :(
