Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope you all have had a great week! I have a lot of things to yell Woo Hoo about! So I thought a Woo Hoo Wednesday would be appropriate.
This week I want to yell Woo Hoo because I'm thankful for:
--My acceptance into grad school! That's right, I am officially accepted into Spalding University's Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program in the genres of YA fiction and general fiction! How exciting! My scores in YA were also so high that Spalding offered me a scholarship! How amazing is that?! I don't know whether I'm going there or not--it depends on what the other schools say--but definitely something to scream WOO HOO for.
--My fiance and I have officially started planning our wedding. It is tentatively set for early October. Our family and friends are all going on a Carnival cruise and we're getting married on the beach in the Bahamas!
--My great family and friends who are so supportive of me in everything I do.
--My professors, Mark Powell and Lori Snook, who wrote my letters of rec for Spalding.
--My RWA articles being reprinted in more than 5 other chapters newsletters--including two chapters in Canada!
--My new work study job in the Stetson library that is supplementing the income I lost from my hours being cut at my outside-school job.
--And last, but not least, my loving dog Sookie. She is the best furred friend a girl could ask for. I love her dearly and her non-stop adoration and love keep me going when I start to feel down.
On Friday I have a very cool announcement to make, so make sure you check back in. I apologize for deviating from my usual post schedule--things have been hectic around here, in a good way. But I promise I will try and be back on track starting now. Til Friday ;-)
