Long time no blog! The past few months have been busy as I started journalism school in September, which has been really fun. Since today is the second last day of 2012, I figured it was time to look back at the past year.
Here are my 2012 highlights, both writing-related and not:
1.) Starting grad school.
2.) Becoming addicted to yoga. There’s a really great studio in my neighbourhood and I took an Intro. to Yoga course there in May and June, and since then I’ve been going a few times a week.
3.) Signing my book at the Ontario Library Association Conference in February.
4.) Participating in a panel called The Writing Life at Hart House at the University of Toronto in March. This was really fun, especially since I did my undergrad at U of T.
5.) Going to the Fiona Apple concert in July. I’ve loved Fiona since I was fifteen and she was amazing live.
6.) Seeing some inspiring movies.My favourites this year: Silent House, Friends with Kids, The Hunger Games, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Five Year Engagement, This is 40, and Liberal Arts.
7.) Getting addicted to more TV shows. My favourites this year: Smash, Catfish, The Mindy Project, and The New Normal.
Now for some news: I’m going to be the Writer in Residence for Open Book: Toronto, which means I’ll be blogging there for January about all things literary. I’ll post the link to my author page there within the next two days.
Here’s to 2013!
