A Busy Week Ahead

In this upcoming week, I have so much to get done. First, I need to fix this mistake in the Rowan system that says I both have and do-not-have my BA. That I’m getting done today if it kills me. But after that:

Sunday, I am attending an archery tournament at Linden Hall in Pennsylvania. It’s my last big hoorah with the Rowan Archery Club since I resigned my position as Captain (which was heart retching for me by the way). I’m not shooting till 3pm which I am very happy about. At my last tournament my coach moved my shooting time to 9am. I wanted to murder him. But hey-I placed third. Maybe with more sleep under my belt I’ll place first! Optimism at its finest here, folks.

Monday, is the Rowan University Writing Arts Department’s first official mixer. AND I PLANNED IT! So-I feel obligated to go. Also I want to go. It’d be nice to finally meet some other Writing Arts majors. My head of department says there are 100+ Writing Arts majors. Just Writing Arts. Not dual majors, not minors-just Writing Arts. I don’t believe him. Not for a single second. In every class I’ve had at Rowan I have felt like the minority because I’m usually in a class full of Writing Arts and Elementary Education majors. Who suck at giving feedback I might add. But that’s for a different post.

Tuesday, I have a novel analysis due on a novel I still need to finish. So there’s that.

And on Friday, I am representing my New Media Production 2 project at Rowan’s RTF Media Fest. We were actually nominated for BEST NEW MEDIA PRODUCTION and I think it’s going to win. So that should be really super fun.

Back to work in the meantime! Expect pictures of all these things… well-except for the paper. Now one cares about that.

She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her masterโ€™s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessicaโ€™s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
