I would like to say that I have not posted in so long because I have just been too busy, but that is not the case. Sometimes I forget, and sometimes I find myself feeling too lazy for the effort. To bring my blog up to date:

I finished my first year at University; it ended rather well and I am taking a much needed break for the summer.

I had my 21st birthday in the middle of March. It feels rather strange to think that I am that old already.

Just over the last month, I have taken up my writing again. I think that being out of school has helped clear my mind and allowed my creativity some breathing room. I have been trying to get out of the house more to find quiet places to write where I will not be interrupted. At first, I did not really tell anyone where I was going, because they would ask why, and at this point I like to keep my writing private. My mother was then convinced that I was secretly seeing a boyfriend, which I would find humorous if it did not make her worry why I did not want her to meet him. Since then I have been careful to tell her at least a vague idea of where I might be going.

I just finished reading Jane Austen's Persuasion, and I find that I really enjoyed it. After reading Pride and Prejudice, and Sense and Sensibility, parts of it were more predictable than I would have liked, but I love the language the book is written in and all the intricacies of the society.

I checked my alternate e-mail account and realized I missed this year's WISE. It is a bit of a disappointment because I do really enjoy books, but it will teach me to keep up with things better.

I know that much more has happened since December, but I cannot bring it to mind just now. I will try to remember to make another post if anything does.
