I know, I know I'm terrible about updating. I'd say I'm going to try and be better, but I always say that. Well, the end of December was really eventful. I turned 19, which still seems ludicrous to me since I everyone who meets me thinks I'm maybe fourteen or fifteen. I really don't feel like I'm 19 yet. Maybe it'll just take a while to soak in. Christmas was great. I got an archery bow from my parents and I love it. I mean, yeah it's a child's bow since I can't really draw anything with a high poundage yet, but I'll get there. I never want to hunt with it or anything, but I'm a fantasy nut so it's cool to have. I'm getting okay with it, although I can't practice much because of the rain. I already sustained an archery injury from the feathered part of the arrow (which I think is made of plastic) hit my hand and leave a small, but painful, wound. I didn't think it was that bad at first but then it started to bleed. And it burned for a good twelve hours or so. But it's healing.

I'm looking forward to getting back to school, but at the same time I want to stay at home. I love the clubs and activities I get to be involved in on campus, but I've missed having my own space. Here, I can sequester myself in my room and be completely alone. It's been a great time of relaxation. I'm going to be doing 20 credits starting on Tuesday (oh lord help me) but it should be fun. I'm glad I get to do Greek again this quarter and I get to do some of the fun classes for my major.  Now I just hope it doesn't snow before Monday since I really want to drive back, not take the train.

As for looking to 2010, I don't really have any resolutions, except maybe to finish the editing of Best Maid Plans so I can try and send it out to agents or publishers. I do know that I'm going to finish at least the rough draft of the first two books in my trilogy. 2009 was crazy. I finished high school, completed my Associate's degree, started at Western, became almost dangerously thin, had an increase in my IBS restrictions, completed NaNoWriMo for the second year in a row, pretty much failed all my resolutions from last year, attended my first Yule ball, attended Prom, and read 115 books. It's been a year of highs and lows, but overall a good year. I hope 2010 will be a good one too.
I'll try to have some book reviews up in a couple of days.

Take Care
