Things I am THANKFUL FOR!

Hi all you lovely people!

I just wanted to say how thankful I am for everyone who stops by my blog, and for the kind words you all have. Elizabeth Seckman, a wonderful and dedicated blogger, mentioned me in her IWSG post, and my heart felt so happy. And Precy Larkins, or as I know her, Cherie, visited my blog and reminded me (as I am often reminded when she favorites things on my Twitter, how much I miss her! And Rachel Schieffelbein is one of the most supportive authors I have ever met. This community of authors is the best ever.

THANK YOU for all of your awesomeness. 

The next few weeks are pretty busy for me (hahahahaha...the whole semester has been!), but I am excited! 

I got my NEW graduation gear!! 

This coloring looks really weird on my computer...lol.

Things that are coming up for me: 

Spring Break! (This means I'll be working on final projects. They aren't due until the end of April, but I'm going to attempt three of them in one week).

March 27th-31st - March 27th is my 4 year anniversary with Aladdin! <3 <3 BUT March 27th-31st are my Comprehensive Examination for my MLIS degree. If I don't pass, I don't get my degree. So, whatever you all do--prayers, send good thoughts, please have those in mind for me that week!

After this, preparation for upcoming presentations!

My book release April 23rd, and I get to tour it until May 9th! 

I graduate MAY 10th!!

I'm going to London May 21-28th!

In the midst of graduating and going to London, I'm probably going to be moving! I also need a job cause the one I have now is a student position that ends when I graduate. 

So many things, but so many exciting things! 

Did I tell you all I'm going to Indie Book Fest?! I get to sign books and have my own table!! I'm so excited. If you all live in Florida, stop by and see me in August! :D
