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...

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?
