Hi you guys.

So, I’m going on a short vacation!

I’m done with the first pass at NW revisions, and TSM is off with the potential editor. I’ve finished college, and haven’t started prepping/applying for grad school.

So, where am I going?

Two Places! First:

Best Friends Animal Sanctuary

This place is remarkable. Located in Utah, the Animal Sanctuary is essentially a VAST farm that cares for un-adoptable animals. Here’s what they say:

“The animals come to the sanctuary from far and wide. But once they’re here, we make sure that nothing bad will ever happen to them again. But there are also those who are the outcasts of society – unwanted, lame, too traumatized by past abuse, or too old, handicapped, or ill. For these lovable, innocent creatures, Best Friends is a unique home and haven. There’s just nothing else like it anywhere.”

I am SO excited about volunteering here. My mother and I will be helping wherever we’re needed for three days. It’ll be hard work, I’m sure, but so incredibly satisfying.

THEN, because charity is always nice when followed by a bit of fun:


I actually went to Vegas for a couple days for my 21st birthday last July. It was a frenetic 48 hours, complete with family, movies, a Russian Vodka bar and hitting as many casinos as possible.

This time, my mother and I are going to relax. I’m sure there will be a little gambling, as I’m quite a fan of the blackjack :p but there will also be this:

and this!

Have I mentioned HOW EXCITED I AM!?!?!!

I have really been wanting to get away, from my internet addiction, from revisions, from school-related closure, from everything.

So my dears, I leave tomorrow, and I’ll be gone until NEXT Friday. I’ll be checking mail when I can, but I doubt I’ll have a chance to blog. I PROMISE I’ll be a better, more sane person when I return, and my blogs will actually have some substance instead of essentially being “sfakhfkjhdf.”
