Here are my last couple weeks in a nutshell - trips, novel, and kittens edition!
Recently I went down a rabbit hole on in this blog, clicking on different Related Links at the bottom of posts I hadn’t seen in ages – some of which I barely remember writing at all.

This past weekend I finally spent my birthday money from Ma and Tom. I was looking for the perfect-for-me opportunity, and then my job loss delayed things even further.
