Due to some sweet e-mails I've received in the past couple weeks, I wanted to fill you in on the craziness that has been (or always is) my life.
-I'll be head down in revisions for a bit, so though I'll keep visiting your blogs, I may not post a lot in the next couple weeks. My lovely agent ripped my manuscript apart and now I've got to mend it.
-School is, as usual, consuming every part of me. I've also taken on a new project that is more public health (specifically, women's health) related. It's been cathartic to learn how much I enjoy speaking with patients, how there are points of similarity in all of us. One day, I hope to spend most of my time improving the lives of others in however many ways I can.
-Two close friends have asked me to sing their first dance songs at their upcoming weddings so that means it's time to practice. Like anything else, music requires frequent practice and I'm ashamed to say I haven't kept up with it. My voice has definitely paid the price. I don't want to embarrass them so I've been recording songs on my computer and will be asking Samir for feedback.
-Making tiny changes to my beauty routine has taken me out of a daily rut. Dark purple eyeliner. Bright lipstick. Sea salt exfoliating scrub. Tight, ballerina bun. A men's styled shirt dress that strikes the balance between feminine and sexy.
-It's Saturday night, I'm sitting by myself at Barnes and Noble, with an iced chai in hand. My manuscript is pulled up and I can hear the excited buzz of a first date couple to my right and a married couple to my left. The craziest part? There's a palpable contentment in me. A few hours ago, I was pushing myself at the gym, feeling pain from muscles that have been neglected due to hours of studying. Then I floated in the pool. An entire day with little human contact can do wonders, you know?
