I hope everybody is enjoying their fall! Are you excited for Thanksgiving? I know I am. Not only does it mean a (much needed) break from school, it also means I get to see my family, friends, and kitties, and my dog and my birds…mustn’t forget the birds! The Romans thought chickens were sacred, you know…there was one general in Rome who went into a battle, lost pretty much the entire Roman navy, killed a whole bunch of soldiers, and what is he tried for when he gets back? Throwing the sacred chickens overboard. No joke. He was exiled because he threw the chickens off the boat. I mean, that’s a jerky move and poor chickens, but exile? That seems a little harsh…
Alright, so coming back from that rabbit trail (or would it be chicken trail?) I’m only two days away from being home! I’m super grateful for the opportunity to take a step back from school and classes, rest and reorient , then jump back in for the last few weeks of class. I’m also hoping I’ll be able to write during break. I doubt I’ll make miraculous progress with anything, but even a little forward momentum would be nice. I’m also hoping to make a game-plan during break for how to write or do something amidst schoolwork so I can get you all a story! So yeah…we’ll see how it goes.
This is a short post (for me at least), but I still have homework to finish before I can enjoy my days of freedom 😉 . Keep an eye out for a special post next week… I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
