Big things happening in my life right now

Work is busy and driving me crazy, but I’ve finally got a shot at a real, sustainable, interesting project. This is incredible. What will be even more incredible is if work continues on it in my absence. We shall see. My boyfriend is sucking up insane amounts of my spare time. Clearly, I’m enjoying the hell out of it, although the fact that I haven’t finished a book in two...

In which theresa gets down to business.

NaNoWriMo is just around the corner! I’d completely forgotten! Yes, I should be spending evenings studying for my LSATs, writing lesson plans, and generally being productive. But who wants to do that when I could be writing a novel?! Yes, I’m going to try again this year. I don’t remember how far I got last year, but I think I was around 30 000 before life, Thanksgiving, and everything else...

I really could do this forever.

In which PC Washington makes theresa :(

In fact, if you did donate, you should write to the Peace...

In which theresa briefly talks about GAD

It’s been kind of a busy week. Two weeks. Month. Year. But mostly a busy couple of days. I went North for the quarterly GAD meeting. Got there early, stayed with Lyle, did some great brainstorming with a couple of different people, got some work done, gossiped (a lot), and had a pretty good time. So what’s GAD? GAD stands for Gender and Development, and is the Peace Corps program...

In which theresa expresses some frustration

I fucking love Mondays. I am an “up and at ‘em” type of woman, and I’m almost always at my desk around 7:30 on Monday mornings. I’m excited to start the week. I’m excited to get work done. I’m excited to fix any gaffes from the week before. It’s a wonderful fantastic feeling. And every single fucking week, by 10:00, there have been enough frustrations and fuck-ups to make me...
