Catching Up

It's been a while. Life has been filled with meetings and doctors appointments. As it turns out, all those questionable blood tests finally revealed that I am completely healthy. A happy ending to a rather inconvenient and stressful month. I've noticed that stress makes me stream old sitcoms on netflix. 3rd Rock from the Sun is currently in my queue.

Now there are new things on my list. The Los Angeles Times Book Festival is coming up and I will be presenting on a panel devoted to teaching creative writing in public schools. I'm excited and nervous. What will I say? What will I wear? Will anyone even come to this? Then there are the unknowns of where I will move to in June. Also, I will be traveling to Bangkok the last two weeks of May. Adventures await. Hopefully not international incidents.

In other news, I've been gluten-free for one month and I'm starting to feel a lot better.

In two weeks I will be giving a reading, along with the rest of my Personal Essay class, as a final project. I still need to write that essay. There is a lot of work to be done.
