I love Colleen Hoover. Her story of mom and social worker to self published author to nationally published author is a wonderful one. I have read all of her books, and I can honestly say that I have never been disappointed. She is a great writer and when a new book comes out, I snatch it up instantly and read it as fast as I can just so I can absorb the story. There is a great story about her in the Huffington Post today.
I am so ready to be done with school. I have 4 months left. I can hardly stand how close I am to graduating. I am sick of term papers and PowerPoint presentations. I am tired of having 3 15-page papers all due in the same week.
Then it dawned on me, I need to go to Graduate School. It is hard enough to get a job these days with a Bachelors degree and multiple Associate degrees, certificates, and diplomas, a Masters degree is the best way to get ahead. I want to go into instructional writing and planning, and my Bachelors just won't cut it alone for that.
So here I am, excited about being finished with school....just to turn around and go right back. I am starting to think there is something serious wrong with me. ha ha. Luckily, I found a school I really like. It is looking like the right plan for me. I am trying not to put my eggs in all one basket and think that being and is going to be my career, as much as I would like it to be.
I am over half way done with this term at school and only have two terms left. I am in the process of looking at graduate schools right now. The school I want is so expensive so I am looking at other alternatives as well.
Between this and the next term, I have a week off, and I am determined to get some writing done.
So a lot of people know, I love Kristen Bell. She is adorable and great in everything she does. So with the Kickstarter campaign to get the movie made coming close to closing, I just wanted to put the word out there about it, in case you didn't know. Being a part of the initial groundbreaking first day was great but the more money means a better movie.
Even if you don't like Veronica Mars or Kristen Bell, you have to give it up for the creative plan to get the movie made. Built in publicity is always a plus. Even if you don't pledge, you can still check out the little video they made and poke around the page.
Ok, I will stop preaching my love and go back to attempting to get my schoolwork done so I can write. On a side note, I will have a week off between semesters this time around so I will hopefully get something done.
As most people know, I am a huge horror fan. Today, I am going to go see the new Evil Dead. I have been excited about this movie for quite awhile, even though I am a huge fan of the original. I am not sure if this one will live up to the original or not, but I am willing to give it a shot. Don't watch the trailer if you are easily offended or don't like excessive gore.
