Dear Kelsey,

I have a bunch of half-finished posts I keep emailing myself to remind myself to work on them or saved to my desktop as BLOG POST TO FINISH!!! TONIGHT! THIS MEANS TUESDAY!

I have guests currently in town, guests arriving in town soon, and my book is due back to the library in two days. I’m reading The Miseducation of Cameron Post and I really want to finish it, but it’s hard to find the time to slow down and take time away from such tiresome chores as talking with close friends and family and getting excited about our upcoming plans.


I’m pretty sure this is one of those books I’ll (grudgingly) accept fines on in order to finish—and, yes, this eventually means a post about An Actual Book I Read Finally omg. Those were, after all, a thing we once wrote about  ; )—but I hope you’ll excuse me from a substantive post tonight. I would like to minimize the financial impact of my poor time management and maybe make it to the end of the chapter before next Monday.

…which is looking less and less likely as I inventory the cleanliness of my apartment.  But I’m sure my parents will understand.

They’re contractually obligated to love me, right?
