Week In Review: Snapped

Hey everyone!  How was your week?
Mine, well....

The things I learned this week:
1.  Stop popping pimples.  One day you're innocently poppin' those pimples and the next you wake up with your eyesight partly blocked off because blind zits are the worst and will take revenge, guys.  They'll swell up to the size of Texas and if your face is only the size of a human face, there's a problem.

2. Don't order shoes online to evade going to the store, especially if you have weird feet.  You may also have to explain to a poor clerk why you've spent the past hour in the same aisle, systematically trying on every shoe because none of them fit right.  (I'm getting a head start on graduation stuff and I had to buy some dress shoes for it...and my feet defy all logical measurements.)

3.  Make sure your computer / typing device doesn't have autocorrect features.  Mine does.  I don't want to talk about it. 

4.  Professors...
Just---
Ugh.

Because of professors, this is an accurate representation of my last nerve, courtesy of my violin string that snapped in my face earlier. (And I took a picture because my mind immediately went to a meme)
5.  DO research before you buy a class ring!  I don't know how many of you guys attend public school or college, but I recently got a flyer about ordering my class ring for college and the company's prices were ATROCIOUS.  Me being me, I spent the day researching and found that Walmart, indeed, sells everything.  So I got a $50 class ring instead of a $400-600 class ring, engraved and everything.  Not too shabby.

Must be those rollback prices.

Also, the first newsletter got sent out this Monday (the 17th)! If you want to see a copy of it, head over to my Facebook page. If you want to get a free copy of my upcoming short story book, sign up!

 Anyway --

Current Projects: Everything and Nothing is currently at the top of a very long list of ideas. I also want to write a few short stories to submit to a handful of journals, though, which is a "mission critical" for this weekend.

 Currently Reading: The Insanity of God and Overcomer by David Jeremiah.

Current Bible Verse : "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer." Romans 12:12 NIV

What are you guys up to, and how's school going?  I'm also thinking about adding a column onto the blog, a page that I'll add to rather than weekly posts, about my escapades during my last year of college.  In a humorous way, of course.  Would you be interested in something like that?

Week In Review: From Zero to Sixty

I wish I would have thought about taking a picture of my class to-do list this week before I started crossing things off, because it totally filled an entire copy page...with small handwriting. But the important thing is that it's done with.  Mostly. For another week.

 Anyway.

Currently reading: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comics and Star Wars: The Last Jedi by Michael Reaves.  (Non-canon.) I'm also reading Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, partly for school and partly out of interest due to the Thor movies by Marvel (although it's Loki I'm reading up on). 

Current projects: My Compass Home, formatting A Town Nativity for publication, and I'm getting ready to start play practices for my church's 150th anniversary play.  I honestly don't know how many words I wrote this week, but between this week and last, I filled half of a composition book and then wrote on the computer some as well, if that counts for anything. 

Current Bible verse: Peace I leave with you, …

Blog Tour: Review of "Beyond Her Calling" by Kellyn Roth!

Hey everyone! Instead of the boring "writing tips" post that I had planned for you guys this week, I am excited to be reviewing Kellyn Roth's new release, Beyond Her Calling, as part of the her blog tour. This was a beautiful book and I loved pretty much every part of it. Let's get to it, then!
Beyond Her Calling "At twenty, Ivy Knight feels as if she hasn't accomplished anything of worth. Her life stretches on before her, empty and pointless. Though her faith in God and her mental abilities have strengthened, she still doubts herself. Does God have a purpose for a socially awkward, often confused and frightened young woman?
Jordy McAllen has just returned to Scotland after his education in London. Though he has accomplished a lot for a farm lad such as himself, he fears that what everyone has always said about him may be true: he won't really make a good doctor. Determined to prove himself, Jordy snatches up the opportunity to become the doctor in …
