End of Week #15

Fkimmy3ifteen weeks? Seriously? I’ve been at this for…fifteen…weeks?

Isn’t my semester only fifteen weeks long?

Don’t mind me. Crying is productive.

Julie’s been out at Emerald City Comic Con for the past couple of days so it’s been very lonely in the basement.

This week, as usual, I’ve drafted up a lot of blogs. I’m also picking up where I left off with the Parenting Blogs for Kelsey. A lot of bloggers don’t seem to have any contact pages up at all and their themes don’t include posting dates which makes it a little difficult to get a list together of active blogs. But I’m doing okay.

A previous intern was also working on this project and it would seem that we not only have differing opinions about what genres different books are but whether or not August is still Summer.

It’s still Summer as far as I’m concerned.

It occurs to me that I don’t know when my last day will be and I should probably ask. I’m hoping to finish out April, but I would like to have the week of Symposium (the end all be all of my graduate program) off, so that I can run through my presentation roughly 900 times.

One of my mailings was for a woman who won a $200 shopping spree to QuirkBooks. But I couldn’t find two of the books she requested. One was out of print, and another had yet to be printed. Quite a conundrum. But I did eventually find a copy of the out of print one.

I’m looking forward to the weekend. To really go to town on my master’s project. Ideally, I want to have it all done by the 22nd.

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 master’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, Jessica’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.
