Answers and Other Random Bits

A couple of posts ago I gave you all six lies and a truth and left it up to you to decided which was the truth. The right answer was actually number six, most of my best friends have been woodwind players the only real exception has been my friend Mark, who plays the trumpet; everyone else has played the flute or the saxophone or the bassoon or even the clarinet. It's almost like I go out of my way, but it just happens. :) Not that I'm complaining.

I've tried to play the flute and failed miserably. I wish I drank V8 Splash every day, but the stuff is expensive. My dog's name is Chloe, though technically she's my mom's (I have a cat named Kidda). I didn't skip any grades, though I really wanted to; I am, however, always one of the youngest in my class because I started school when I was 5 instead of 6. As much as I wish my brother and I were best friends, most of the time we have a hard time getting along for more than ten minutes at a time. And while I haven't driven a car in a while, it hasn't been three years, only two...and a half. :P

As far as writing goes, I've finally started in on the project I've been trying to avoid for the last 2+ months. It's pretty cool. I like it. :D I'd tell you what it's about, but I'm trying to keep it under wraps for a while. I want to get a first draft out before I go spoiling the surprise, haha.

I'm on Spring Break this week, so I'm trying to catch up on some reading and writing. I've started on the new project and I've already read the 2nd and 3rd Percy Jackson books; 4 and 5 are sitting next to me waiting to be read. I'm hoping I'll get to read a few more books after I read two for my folklore class (Beastly and The Fire Rose). I've got Leviathan, and it's been staring me down and taunting me for weeks, but I've also gone on a huge book buying spree so I have a ton to choose from. :)

In other news, I won't be interning anywhere this summer, which sucks, but it's all good. I still plan on going to NY in May to try to job shadow a few people and get a look at the industry in hopes that I won't be completely lost when I move to NY after graduation and try to break in.

How are things going for all of you? Working on anything exciting? Have any great plans for the summer?

Ah! I'm so jealous you're moving to NY!! You'll be able to go to all kinds of cool publishing related stuff.

How do you feel about free-loading Aussies sleeping on your floor? Theoretically of course.

Jade, I've still got a year to go before I graduate and pack my bags, but once I'm settled and making enough money to afford rent somewhere you can totally come crash on my couch (if I have one)! :)

Tahereh, I hope it's made of win lol. And other than my week up there (if I can pull it off), my only other plans are to practice my instruments, read, and write like crazy! (which probably means lots of caffeine :P)
