So today’s been a good day. Like a really good day. First, I got my first not-horrible grade on a Spanish test this semester, along with scoring well on some other things. Then I got guaranteed by the professor teaching the intro to creative writing-type class next semester that I can take it, which I have been super nervous about getting into, up until now. And then, I just was scouting around los Internets (that’s literally the Spanish for “the Internets,” by the way), and I found this: http://lauren-oliver.tumblr.com/post/35784854467/requiem-givaway-winner-16
Lauren Oliver posted an excerpt from my (extremely long) personal essay on her Tumblr, guys. Please excuse me while I go scream in the corner.
And this is after already getting to freak out over my ARC of Requiem a couple weeks back:
THERE ARE JUST SO MANY EMOTIONS TODAY. CONSTANTLY.
Also, while we’re on the topic of Requiem: I can’t wait until March when you get to read it too, and then we can freak out about it together, because it is a fabulous book. And Lauren Oliver is a fabulous person. And I am on her Tumblr.
PS. My wonderful and talented friend Kira won NaNoWriMo a couple days ago. (Yeah. That’s the full 50,000 words in less than two weeks. But don’t worry, you don’t have to envy her–I’ve already got you covered.) If you’d like to go check out her blog instead of working on your own NaNo novel, here’s the link: http://kirabudge.weebly.com/kiras-blog.html
