Hey, everyone. Long time, no talk. Other than a few writing snippets, I haven’t been around much. Unfortunately, I’ve been neglecting all of my social media for the better part of a month due to a multitude of issues that I won’t talk (err…write) about right now. However, I am working on changing that.
First of all, I got a job at a local animal clinic. I started on Monday, but the owner gave me the day off today in order to keep myself from getting tired out. Basically, I work in the hospital taking care of the sick animals. I think my official title is Kennel Assistant, but my team is more of a cross between that and a Vet Tech. It’s hard work with its ups and downs (one of the dogs I walked and played with ended up having to be put down, so that was difficult), but I do enjoy it. I’m learning a lot about a field I never thought I’d work in despite my love of animals, so I’m grateful for that.
Secondly, I found out two of my mini-stories were picked to be in the VSS 365 Anthology, which makes me ridiculously happy. I never thought I’d be picked once, let alone twice. I feel so privileged to be included with a pool of talented writers. Here is a link with more information.
Third, I started talking to an amazing woman. I don’t want to jinx anything, but she’s incredible and I think everything will turn out well for us. It’s long-distance, but I’m not a stranger to that. I’m confident it will all work out.
Finally, I’m happy to say I’m finding my way back toward the right spiritual path. The best way I can describe it is eclectic Paganism with a focus on witchcraft. I’m sure several of my readers will laugh at this, but frankly, I don’t care. I have a family history (no, I’m not claiming to be descended from Salem witches) on both sides and was raised in a pretty eccentric family where talks of the paranormal were…well…normal. I haven’t felt this spiritually fulfilled since I was a teen. I’m working on getting some of my favorite tools together and I’m excited to delve deeper into my practice.
As far as writing goes, I’m getting a little bit done each day. I doubt I’ll be finish a book in the near future, but at least the wheels are turning.
Until next time.
