Oh. Hey. How was your week? My week was pretty awesome. I read. I went to work. I did some knitting. Oh, yeah–and I MET RAINBOW ROWELL. YEAH. I DID THAT. It was pretty amazing. It kind of guided me through the whole week, the wonderful memory of listening to her talk and getting a picture and everything. She was so funny to listen to, and I feel like she’s someone who would be so fun to just have a conversation with, one on one. She’s pretty wonderful. The only problem now is that my mom refuses to borrow my copy of Landline to read it because it’s been signed, so I might have to buy her a copy like I did with The Fault in Our Stars, since she wouldn’t borrow that one either.
The rest is true, too, though–I did start knitting my first pair of socks, which are going slowly but only because I haven’t been working on them. I’ve also been working on reading the library books I have left, finishing The Diviners last night and then starting Ready Player One. I kind of can’t wait to finish Ready Player One since my copy of Caveworld arrived this week and I’m dying to read it. The cover alone is fantastic, but I also really enjoy Adam Gnade’s writing, so I’m pretty pumped to read a novel of his.
And, of course, I’ve been passing the Wonderlust submissions call around the internet. I’ve gotten a lot of good response; now I’m just waiting for some pieces to come in. I’m really impatient about it because I’m so excited to put it together, but since I don’t plan to put it out until December anyway, I should probably learn to calm my socks.

“It’s Friday; I’m in Love” is a (mostly) weekly gratitude post. It aims to remind myself and others of the good things from the past week, big and small; to share ways to make the next week a positive one; and to serve as a record to look back on for the not-so-great days to come. The title comes from the song by The Cure.
