Ramblings, Updates, and Other News

It's been a month. Literally. My apologies for the long delay. First, there were end of the year projects and papers and tests. Then, there were those hideous things we call finals. In the midst of all of that I was working a the library while simultaneously trying to find both work and an apartment in NYC. And after that... Well, after that I graduated. I now have a B.A. in English, and the world doesn't feel any different. However, I do have a few new pictures.

Trying to get to my seat before commencement.
Diploma. I has one. 
 Me with my gorgeous little sisters. Marie, left, and Autumn, right.

Alright. So that's a short look at my college graduation. Good times. I have yet to receive my actual diploma in the mail yet, but I have a pretty holder for it when it does come in.... Anyway, I wanted to include a picture with my sisters because Marie is actually graduating high school tonight! EXCITING! I'm incredibly happy about this, as I would not have been able to make it to her graduation if my own hadn't come a week before hers. YAY good universe karma! Autumn still has another year to go, which means she had better pick a college soon. :) (Marie decided to go to my Alma Mater. I never thought that could make me happy haha.)
In other news, I have been applying for jobs and searching for an apartment. You'll know more when I do. Promise. Also, might I just add that preparing for a cross-country move is hard. I don't even know how I'm going to get most of my stuff up there. Crazy. Umm. Yea. that's where I'm at now. Upacking, repacking, packing more things, rearranging things. It's awesome. 
How have you been? What are you up to? Did you miss me as much as I missed you? :P

Look at you, you have one of those rope thingies around your neck! (I said that about my husband in his graduation pictures and my mom thought I was talking about a

Congrats on graduating and I see that alot of agents on Twitter are looking for assistants and interns so maybe that will help.

If it makes you feel better it took me atleast a month of working part-time just so I could stay in the city I wanted before I took an entry level job (that I hated) for two years before I finally moved up. If all else fails just go work at the cupcake/book store because that would be awesome to be surrounded by books and cupcakes all day!
