Where I’ve Been

February 16, 2012

Hi, everyone. As you probably have noticed, my online presence has drastically diminished these last few months. I’ve slowly descended into the murky waters of I Have No Free Time Lake, and I’m trying my best to swim to the surface. I sincerely apologize for the lack of activity and, as always, I can’t thank you enough for sticking with me.

For those of you who’d like to know, here is a quick update as to where I’ve been:

As some of you may know, I work at a local bookstore. I love this job and am so grateful to have it. Recently, my hours have increased and I have also been given more responsibilities, including running a young adult review program, the same one I used to and still participate in. I’ve been trying to reorganize it and get familiar with running such a program, so that’s taken up some of my time.

Also, more importantly, I’m currently in school and have been extremely busy with all the work associated with that. I’m really liking this semester, though, and have made some great friends, which is something I have a hard time doing sometimes. I’ve also learned that my plan to be at the school I’m at for another semester is on track and then I’ll move onto a four-year university for–hopefully–two years. And then I’ll be DONE. Yay!

I’ve been hard at work writing new songs, which, much like the novel writing process, is a slow and delicate one. I recently finished writing a song the other week and hope to have it ready to share with you all in a month or so.

Anyway, I do have a couple reviews lined up for the near future and I’m still trying to keep up with reading, but until summer vacation hits, I’ll continue to be tangled up in school and work. Again, I apologize for my absence, but I hope you all are doing well!

    So happy to hear school is going great, DJ! We’ve missed you, but we understand…school comes first! Can’t wait to hear your new song (and read your new book that I just KNOW will be coming soon!)
