I’m always excited when I get the chance to interview an author on HelloGiggles, and this week’s post was ESPECIALLY exciting because I had the chance to interview fellow HelloGiggles writer and all-around awesome lady, Leila Howland. You can check out the interview here (and go read her book, Nantucket Blue!).

I forgot to mention that I had an article on The Daily Muse a few weeks ago! It’s all about the things you learn when you’re an assistant, and it’s based on extensive personal experience.
The Daily Muse is a great, lady-focused business site and I’m happy to be published there! Yay!
Hey guys! I’d love it if you pop on over to Blisstree to read my feelings about changing my name after marriage. It’s a topic that really interests me, because it evokes A LOT OF FEELINGS. Not that I’m saying it evokes ambivalence for everyone–some people have always known they won’t/will change their name–but typically people have strong feelings about their personal choice. Anyway, I’m interested to hear your thoughts! Well, not if your thoughts are, “Why are you talking about this I hate you and you’re dumb,” in which case keep your thoughts to yourself, weirdo. Just kidding, I know you wouldn’t even think that. You’re a doll! Never change!
“It all comes back. Perhaps it is difficult to see the value in having one’s self back in that kind of mood, but I do see it; I think we are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind’s door at 4 a.m. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends. We forget all too soon the things we thought we could never forget. We forget the loves and the betrayals alike, forget what we whispered and what we screamed, forget who we were.” – Joan Didion, On Keeping A Notebook (Go ahead! Read it online if you haven’t yet!)

This week in Young Adult Education, I wrote about DC Pierson’s Crap Kingdom, a book that’s funny and strange and weird. You can check out the post on HelloGiggles if you’re so inclined!
