>I Guess I’ve Been Hiding

>What to say, what to say??

Deb scolded me for not writing on ye olde bloge (that’s Latin), so here you go, Deb.

My phone bill was over 200 bucks so I’ve cut off another form of communication. I won’t be using my phone before 9 pm weekdays for the month. Punishment for impulsive behavior. I hope I learn a lesson.

My manuscripts are in! After receiving feedback from Jen G, I can’t wait for my workshop. And I am ready to be smitten about Brian. Semester three is going to be solid gold.

I read Love Invents Us by Amy Bloom because Aimee said I’m like the main character (at least the younger version of her). The book was surprisingly inspiring and helped me slow down and develop one of my characters.

I now know that I have rooftop access on my building. For a basement dweller, this is kind of crucial to maintaining some degree of mental stability.

Um, what else? I’m thinking about applying to a bunch of artist housing lotteries. Does anyone know about these? If I could get cheaper housing, I wouldn’t have to work full time and then I could write more. If you have any leads, please let me know.

I leave for Boston next week. I’m excited to see my big sister and my residency friends and of course, my beautiful genius mentor, Brian. (Who puts all her eggs in one basket?)

Footloose kind of took up my life for a week. My story refers to the movie. Seeing this film in my current life is really different than my memories of Kevin Bacon as a child. If you haven’t seen it lately, by all means. You don’t know what you’re missing!

Truth: I’ve been a little down since I found out I have yet another small medical problem. I forgot that going to doctors also means learning what’s wrong instead of what’s right with my body. I’ll be having minor surgery in August and I’m a bit daunted. Even though the results were good, the whole biopsy thing burnt me out. I hate to be a Negative Nancy, especially because it’s not a very big deal in the scheme of medical stuff, but there you have it.

A pigeon pooped on me today. Good luck, right?

Been listening to: Jens Lekman

  • >Wow, you must be relieved about the manuscripts. I guess you’re not so relieved about the surgery. I hope that it’s nothing too major.Thinking of you,Paulettasaurus

    >Gili,I miss you- it’s been two weeks! Ridiculous. Looking forward to Sunday. And, I would like to state that this is the first time ever that you have mentioned in public (online is in public, right?) enjoying two of my favorite cultural phenomena. Even though I’ve known for a while that Jens and Roxy are the best, I feel vindicated.Congrats on the manuscripts and lots of love!

    >I”ll be sending good thoughts your way when you’re in for that surgery. I like how pumped you are for the third semester. It can only get better from what we all seem to have experienced in the second. My theory is that the winter semester is harder because winter is itself harder, and there is something “light” about summer and even fall. Looking forward to seeing you!
