Hey, look, we made it through a Friday the 13th! I’m gonna call this week a success just for that. 😂
Life Beyond the Blog
It’s been a big hush-hush kind of week as I work on a project that I feel really strongly about but also can’t share just yet. Hopefully by the end of next week, I’ll have something more to say, but for now, take some fun and cryptic emojis for the road: ⚔️🛡️📗🏳️🌈
In other news, I’d also appreciate it if you all took note that I’m using she/they rather than only she/her right now. Being called miss and ma’am at work for the last month has been incredibly grating in ways I hadn’t anticipated, so now I’m in something I’m going to call gender limbo. It’s weird, I don’t totally have words for it, and all I can really articulate is that gender is weird and messy and I’m understanding it less every day. And that’s possibly the biggest thing that’s happened this week.
Other than that, life is relatively calm, and I’m relatively content. I’m planning ahead for things, I have some new ideas, and I’m making good progress on reading books. All in all, it’s not a bad week!

The Week Ahead
My hours at work next week have been trimmed down, and while I need the money, I also need a bit of a breather for that creative work I’m itching to talk about. I can’t share it with you all just yet, but know that I’ll mention it as soon as I can, I promise. It’s something I’m really thrilled about, and I think it’s going to bring you some joy as well, which is all I can hope for.
And, as usual, I’m going to attempt to get some writing done. We’ll see if I succeed, given how abysmal my track record has been through all of August and this far in September, but if I keep telling myself I’m going to do it, well, eventually I’m going to do it! I hope. 😳
So there you have it, another week in the books. Hope it’s been a good week for you, and that next week is even better.
