Current Book(s): Soooo many books, soooo little time. Currently, I’m loving Drown by Junot Diaz. I’m also listening to some “classics” in the car on the way to work, and love that. I’m just wrapping up The Picture of Dorian Gray and am going to start Pride and Prejudice next!

Current Wishlist: First and foremost, for my dad’s chemo and radiation to go well, and for grandma to keep getting better. More shallow? A new, cute, pink cruiser bike, a new camera, and some cute fall dresses.
Current Needs: For payday to happen, like, super early. Kidding, sort of. I don’t know of anything I need. It sounds so serious!
Current Triumphs: Not gonna lie, I’ve had a great teaching week so far. I’ve been working out. I’ve written every single day and been handlin’ business. Pretty proud of myself. Oh, and I did a painting tonight I’m semi-proud of.
