Taking Stock 01

Beautiful Summer Sunset

I saw a post like this one on Meet Me At Mike’s and wanted to try it out right away. I think it’s an interesting and creative way to let everyone know what I’ve been up to lately. My plan right now is to make this a weekly feature, so hopefully you all enjoy it!

This past week has been crazy. I started a part-time retail job (my first retail job) and I am EXHAUSTED. Seriously, how do people do that for a living? Also I’ve developed a new-found appreciation for cashiers. You don’t realize how hard that work can be. Trust me.

I’ve been busy working on my novel revision, too. I can’t believe how well it’s turning out (but more about that next Wednesday!). Tentative release date is somewhere close to Christmas. I’m so excited I can hardly stand it.

Everything’s coming up Briana.
