I did it!

I did it!

March 3, 2017 Personal 2

EEEEEeeeeepp!!!! I have good news. I accepted an offer for a publishing job!! Starting on Monday, I’ll be working as the assistant of the Publisher of Forge at Macmillan!   This has been such a long and winding road for me, but after saving up for 2-3 years to move, job hunting for 8 months, completing 119 applications, and going on interviews for 14 different positions, I finally did it! Really though, I think I’m too excited to comprehend. There are just so many emotions, but I think the bottom line for me right now is that I’m so relieved… Read more »

Catching Up: The crazy chaos that is moving

Catching Up: The crazy chaos that is moving

May 25, 2016 Challenges, Updates 3

Catching Up on Life It seems like any time things have really slowed down in my blogging and reading life it’s because my life is just insanity. Plenty of good things  have happened since the last time we caught up, but family drama and extreme amounts of travel have left me drained. And even though this next month or so is probably going to be extremely busy due to more travel and packing up and moving half way across the country, I’m determined to let you all know what’s been going on: (Sorry in advance for the novel below) – One of my… Read more »

Catching Up: Yep, It’s March

March 20, 2016 Challenges, Updates 2

Okay so I KNOW that I was pretty much patting myself on the back for doing such an AMAZING *cough*decently/sorta consistent*cough* job with my monthly updates in 2015. Well, 2016 has proved to be a completely different animal, and the struggle has been real. So I’ve come up with a new format to keeping you all in the loop of my going-on’s and I’m calling it “Catching Up” because I’ll be catching up with all you guys and catching up on my challenges, and catching up on anything and everything blogging and reading related.

An Interview with Myself

An Interview with Myself

March 9, 2016 Blog Events 2

When I saw that Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf was planning this blogging event, it was like she reached through the depths of the internet into my soul and figured out exactly what I needed. Because if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been struggling real hard with blogging for the past few weeks. But I’m HOPING that this is the exact push I need to get back into the swing of things. So to get things started, I’m interviewing myself. Name? Location? Age? Hey! I’m Jordin. I currently live in Madison, WI and I’m 25 years old. Family peoples? I live with my… Read more »

Back from Honeymooning

Back from Honeymooning

August 11, 2015 Personal 3

Hey guys! I’ve been a little absent on the blog as of late. From getting married in June, to finding a new apartment, attempting to move out, going on a honeymoon, and moving in, it’s been a VERY busy month or so.  To help me get back into the swing of things, I wanted to share my honeymoon trip with you all! Day 1 Because no vacation is complete without fudge or chocolate, Ben and I stopped at a couple candy shops in Sturgeon Bay. I also wanted to pick up a book, in case I wasn’t satisfied with the… Read more »

Moving, lack of internet, and other sh*t: A Rant

August 13, 2014 Personal 3

I don’t often get very personal on this blog, but I’ve just had the worst couple of days and NEED to let off some steam. And begin rant: This past weekend and first half of the week has been complete and utter horseshit. The fiance and I moved from our crappy one-bedroom apartment to a lovely house that is filled with roommates. Yes, I agreed that moving into a beautiful house and saving money was worth the added roommates, but sigh… It’s just been a lot to deal with at once. Moving in general can be stressful, but moving in with people… Read more »
