Oh look, an update!

Well, what can I say - it's been a while!

My medical issues have been getting progressively more complicated; fortunately, I believe I'm now in the hands of a good team of doctors, as we seem to be making progress. Mark and I have delayed our wedding ceremony to be on the safe side. My college graduation has also been postponed.

But that doesn't mean I haven't been busy! Amidst the various medical-related things I've been doing, I've also been working on writing and editing projects. I've drafted several new poems, revised some earlier ones, and started putting them together into chapbooks. I'm slowly catching up on all the reading I've had to put off in lieu of textbooks and other assigned reading.

And I've been working diligently on Mark's fire history book, which is now in the last proofing stage. Once we get the print copy proof next week, we'll know if we need one more round of changes or if it's ready to go to print! Once ready, it'll be available at the Albion Fire Department's 125th anniversary celebration. For a sneak peak and more info, check out his website.

As for this blog, I plan to begin blogging fairly frequently. I will be including personal things, especially those things relating to my various illnesses. It should help me to talk about it and keep a better record, but I decided to make it publicly viewable in case anyone can benefit from it. I'll keep using tags so those who want to skip to certain types of posts can do so.
