I know, I know, I’m an awful person who fails her NYE resolutions and doesn’t blog enough. Yes yes yes. I’ll care more in two weeks, when my dissertation is handed in.
Two weeks. Seriously. As of today. What is even life.
But a lot has happened since my last blog entry. Mainly, I’ve moved out of home and into a flat. I have no housemates, no TV, and no wifi. Life is very quiet and studious at the moment. It’s a little surreal, but it’s also very nice. I’m eating better, drinking less alcohol and more water, and (weirdly) being more sociable.
But the sociable bit is dead for the moment, because dissertation.
The other more significant piece of news is that Penguin has picked up one of my short stories for an upcoming anthology! I’m terribly excited – the contract arrived today, I’m almost done with this round of edits, and I’ve received a wave of support and love from friends and family.
So everything is desperately busy and stressful, but I’m also in a pretty good place right now, and very thankful for all the wonderful people in my life. /endgush
