2018 March

March 7 – April 2

What a busy month! The highlights:

Joe Biden came to Kellogg! I enjoyed hearing him speak. His strongest part centered around what he believes have always been America’s key core strengths:

  1. A willingness to challenge tradition and status-quo
  2. An unyielding stream of immigrants (some of the best and brightest) from other countries

I agree with his stance and left the talk with a more positive impression of Joe (though I know he’s not perfect).

My Business Innovation Lab team presented our findings to Hormel, our big client this quarter. The presentation went well and, while we were in Austin (Minnesota), we got to visit the SPAM museum. Turns out (surprise) I don’t like SPAM, but maybe I haven’t given it a fair shake?

Finally, I flew back to Orlando with Ryan and his parents. His parents got to meet my family (O_O!). I think it went well. And of course we also did a bunch of wedding stuff including our food and cake tasting. Everything was delicious, and I am so excited for the wedding (food). I also locked in hair and makeup as well as music and invitations. But the real highlight, was hanging out with this special rascal:

One more quarter of school and then I get my summer of writing 😉 (oh and moving and wedding and moving again)

PS – I also added a new page to my website where I plan to post writing resources I collect along my journey. Definitely check it out if you’re interested!

February 6 – March 6

Not that much has happened in the last month. I visited Ryan – we celebrated our 3-year (O_O) anniversary and massively destroyed Overcooked. Chiberia continued to be freezing cold. My MMM capstone project (chili!) has taken over my life (one more week and I’m free). I managed to get almost none of the classes I wanted for my last quarter at school. And, though I’ve been writing a ton, getting out high-quality finished shorts has been a little more slow-going than I would like.

Currently, I’m waiting to hear back from Clarion and Clarion West. I should know in the next 2 weeks, and I am about dying from all the stress. I want to go to Clarion or CW so so badly, but both are very difficult to get into (I’m trying to be real about that). SO I’ve decided as a consolation prize, I’ll use what I would have spent on tuition to go on some big trip should I be rejected – more on that hopefully never haha.

I am also pretty excited for spring break. Ryan and I are heading to Orlando to do wedding stuff with my family and his parents (who are joining us). I am also hoping I’ll get a lot of uninterrupted writing and reading time! Lately, I’ve been sprinting through the Nebula nom list, and I am excited to keep on pushing 🙂
