The Great Return!

So, yeah, I think I may be back!

I mean, this is the first night in a very, very, very long time in which I find myself WIDE awake while the rest of the world seems to be asleep. For so long I've been so busy, and now, here I am, with a bookcase of unread books behind me, LitNet at my fingertips, and this strange, wiggly feeling which may just be...excitement?

So, a lot has happened since I last posted. To be honest, I've only made one post tonight, in the "What are you thinking?" thread, but I figured I'd start slow

My boyfriend Chris and I have just about finished building our apartment. We are living in it now, and it is gorgeous. For the first time ever, I kind of have my own "place," and, thank the heavens, I have MY OWN OFFICE. That ROCKS. My own desk, file cabinet, and bookcase built into the wall. Ahhhhhh....

Over the summer I'll be in West Virginia, working at a summer camp as an archery instructor. I'm excited to get off island, pull away from work and school, and sort of investigate another part of myself for a couple of months. I'm also hoping I'll find time to read and write while I'm there, as I've missed out on reading a LOT of books I would like to read and my writing skills have plummeted with lack of practice. Gawd, must I sound so acadamn-demic?

Ermmm. I miss it here, hopefully I'll be in the swing of things again soon

    Welcome back, and that's good that everything sounds so great for you right now, I hope it continues that way! I feel a little silly saying "Welcome back!" to people who come back when I'm fairly new to the forums, but oh well.
