Welcome to the 58th Edition of My Sunday Post!
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
I feel like last week went by so fast! So I never heard from the job, despite sending thank yous, so I guess I just didn’t get it 🙁 On the flip side, I had a talk with my grad school adviser and it looks like I’m not in any danger of losing my funding right now afterall, so that’s a relief at least. I still wish I had a job instead, but at least I have income coming in to pay the bills. What more can I ask for, right?
I’m submitting my short story to the competition today, so new reason to cross your fingers for me (please). This is my first attempt to publish anything and I’ve worked so hard on it – I swear, it’s gone through a good 16 drafts with edits. Last I heard they already had more than 200 entries – and they’re taking 20-25 stories – so I’ve got a pretty big pool. I feel like I’ve succeeded, though, even if I don’t get into the anthology. Because I’ve finally taken a chance on my dream of being a published author. Eeek!
Well – I think that’s it for now, so have a great week all!

Kimba (Caffeinated Book Reviewer) and Jennifer (Book Shelfery) are hosting the Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon again this year! I had so much fun with this last year, so I definitely need to dig up some holiday reads to join in. Trying to avoid Netgalley…
