    As the saying goes, it's a small world. Maybe it's a good thing that this happened. Speaking with them might give you more clues as to how strong your feelings are for them and whether a more serious relationship is in the cards. :slight_smile:

    I saw an episode of Criminal Minds last night and the acting was worse than porn. I'll stick to SVU.

    It's a community for all bookish things. One of my favourite videos is a bookshelf tour by a guy in the United Kingdom. :slight_smile:

    Me: I'm so busy! I'm either working or hanging out with people, its exhausting for an introvert like me!

    Also me when I'm not doing either of those things: I am SO bored

    I hate how competition shows now focus on who has the biggest sob story rather than who has the best talent. American Idol, America's Got Talent, etc. They all do it and it's so annoying.

    Oof, I feel the same way. I started querying in the Fall and just got my second rejection (I did a pitch contest on a certain bird app and some agents liked my pitches...I only queried to two of them). I'm in the middle of another round of edits but once they're finished I plan on querying again and it's terrifying.

    Good luck :slight_smile:

    Went on a spontaneous weekend road trip vacation to Atlanta, and wow that city is way bigger and more fun than I thought it was. I love that the bars have no cover so much, went to 12 in one night and every single one was overflowing with people my age.

    Also discovered that driving through south Georgia at midnight, you can do literally whatever you want, because there are no people anywhere. Driving 155 miles per hour for extended periods was amazing. Even managed to not squish a possum.

    Ah, the pitching events on said bird app can be pretty exciting (and anxiety inducing, lol). Thank you, best of luck to you as well! ^_^

    Oh they are INCREDIBLY anxiety inducing. I don't use said bird app a lot, so therefore don't have a lot of followers and I'm always super surprised when people notice my pitches...but I get super worried too since my pitches are about gay characters and I'm not overly out.

    Thankfully, I've had a lot of positivity. An editor at one of the Big Five acknowledged my pitch in the last event I did but I'm still not agented soo

    That's a great sign, though! Depending on which pitch contest we're referring to, my wife got her agent from it. I wish I were querying but after querying four novels with very few requests, I'll be damned before I query this one before I'm confident.

    Work went so fast, and now the night is going so slow.

    Not that I'm complaining, just a weird observation.

    Lol same. Do you ever say “I want to go home” even though you’re actually at home?

    I really need to get back out there and take more photos.
    I recently found a bunch of my old photography pictures, and there were quite a few good ones in there.

    Leaving the house earlier I was feeling like there was something I was forgetting. Of course I was right. Lol.

    The internet: On average about four months, but if you're asking this question in the first place...have you considered it might be more than that?

    I've been getting significantly earlier shifts than normal, which means I've been waking up significantly earlier too. Not even 10 yet, but it's felt like 2 AM for hours aha
