• It's been a little over two years since I last wrote. Which means there's quite a lot to catch up on here... but I think I'm just going to skip over that. Most people reading this journal also follow me on Twitter or are also friends on Facebook, so they would have gotten little tidbits of it there. Still, I'm feeling the need for a more long-form way of telling the world what's been going on in my life, so here we are.

• At the end of September, boyfriend and I are going to pack up and move to Fort Collins, Colorado. Ok, technically I'll be living in Loveland, but I've come to think of that as part of the Fort Collins Greater Metropolitan Area, and I'll be working in Fort Collins. Because, oh yeah, I landed a job there. I'll be starting mid October. We have a really great little apartment, too, in a really great location. With both of those things taken care of, I'm free to go back to worrying about the actual move itself and living in a new and unfamiliar place. But I'm sure that will pass. And I'm excited to be starting a new adventure.

• I've been trying to read more this year. With the sole exception of July, during which I finished one book (which I had started at the end of June) and then continued to read one other (which I then finished on the 1st of August), I've been doing pretty good. This year's spread sheet has color coding for the gender of authors (because I'm curious) as well as different coding for things that are re-reads (aka comfort reading) and things that will end up on my "Best Books I Read in 2016" list at the end of the year. I'm having fun with it, and also enjoying reading—which was the whole point of this endeavor.

• Related: If you haven't read [livejournal.com profile] seanan_mcguire's Every Heart A Doorway, do so. It's short and won't take you very long, and you'll be happy you did. And if you haven't read Rachel Aaron's Heartstrikers series, definitely do that too. The third book, No Good Dragon Goes Unpunished came out last week, you should do that too. I mean, start with the first two if you also haven't read those, but then definitely read #3 because it's so so so good.

• This morning I woke from a dream in which I had agreed to be a gangster boss's mistress, in a time when cars and horses were on the streets together. It considering that it was mostly the two of us talking, and me realizing that he was really a nice guy who missed his dead wife terribly and really wanted to build this beautiful house... it was a pretty nice dream. This dream also featured FAO Schwarz, but some weird version of it, and me cryptically saying that it looked different than the last time I'd seen it, because I was also, apparently, a time traveller. Sometimes I really love my brain.

That's it for now. More things as I think of them, I suppose.
