WWOOFing in Italy

My time in Italy is rapidly coming to a close, and while I’ll elaborate on future plans in a later post, I still have some issues to work through before my contract is up, namely the fact that I have about a month and a half of dead time between moving out of my apartment…

Catching Up. Again.

So, I could spend a little while apologizing for the lack of posting. I think the last time I posted here was sometime in November? Wow, that’s a long time. Alright, I am sorry for not getting anything out to you guys in that time. I have a couple of excuses—more like explanations—but I figure…

Post-Hiatus: NaNoWriMo and Library Work

Well, it’s been a long time. It’s nice to see you. I see you’ve grown a beard and some serious pit hair. Been partaking of Movember/No-Shave-November, have you? I did, too, to a degree.

PUBLISHED (also vacation)

I mentioned in my Hunting for Publishers post that I was interested in submitting some of written work to a variety of literary magazines. I gave you a list of poems that I wanted to send out to places (Anthropology, Snake Bite,…

Corri la Vita 2013

I’m not much for running. In fact, I’m not terribly good at exercising, either, and I know it’ll come back to bite me in the ass at some point. By virtue of an obnoxiously fast metabolism, I get to eat as much pasta, rice, and other delicious carby goodies as I like without gaining much,…
