Home on the Range

Outside of IYL, I’ve been a bit absent on the blogosphere and twittersphere lately. Moving has kept me VERY busy, but I have missed my book world a lot and I’m excited to start diving back into it and playing catch up. I’m in LA now, and most of my settling in is done. I’m unpacked and I’ve crossed most of my big to-do items off of my list. (One of those items was renewing my library card so that I could start putting holds on a million books and reminding the librarians here why they used to love me so much.)

In other thrilling news, after being in LA for all of….a week….I have a job! I’m starting work at Hulu next week, and I’m ridiculously happy about this next step in life. There’s still going to be a lot of adjusting for a while, but I have one more week of vacation (or being an unemployed, lazy bum) in which to catch up on reviews and read by the pool. Once I start work, I will be commuting quite a bit, so I will likely be stocking up on audiobooks from the library and podcasts online.

I have no intention of giving up on blogging–I love all of my blog people way too much for that–so we’ll just be playing things by ear and seeing what kinds of changes I may have to make to squeeze everything into the all too limited number of hours in the day. (Tips from those who blog while holding down full time jobs are welcome.)

So now that I’m back, what have I missed, blogger friends? Do you have any fun news to share from the last couple weeks? Summer books you want to make sure everyone in the world knows about? Things you’ve read lately that I MUST read during my remaining vacation? Audiobooks that I should start ordering or podcasts that I need to download for my commute to work?

  • You missed my wedding to Robert Pattinson. Sure, it’s a little polygamous. Okay, a lot. But whatever.

    No, really, you missed nothing. Glad you made it to Cali in one piece — now get reading! We missed you!

    • Alright Anna, spill, how long does it really take him to get that shiny in the morning? And it’s true that he really, really isn’t playing Finnick, right? 😉

  • Welcome home, friend!! I’ve missed your little chat box while you were traveling & getting settled in. Super stoked about your new job, though! My only piece of advice as someone who does work & go to school full time + blogging… if this is something you truly love & are passionate about, you’ll make time for it. I think that’s true in anything we do in life. Best of luck! And I seriously want to be at that pool right now!! haha

    • We are definitely due for some gchats!

      Also, I remain convinced that you are some kind of superhuman, but I really hope you are right….maybe I can become a superhuman, too, when the circumstances call for it 🙂
