I know, I know! I'm a horrible, terrible, no good person. Excuse: completely forgot my password. With the whirlwind that was my life those last weeks, submitting papers, biting my nails till the last moment, I let the blog go. I'm sure it was a very sad event for the five people who actually read my words of wisdom. To catch up: I did finally get my masters. I received it in a nice flat envelope and it has yet to do me any good. I apply for jobs everywhere on a regular basis and there are no interested parties as of yet. I still have my fingers crossed. Yes, I still work at Barnes & Noble, but as a Children's Department Lead. This is fun because a) teen books are becoming leagues better than they were just five years ago and b) the pay is better.

Beyond that, nothing is really new in my life. Back to the boring grind of a bookseller who deals with customers I want to strangle half the time. I really, really want to go back to the UK. It's a need that is reaching critical mass. However, the timing has been off recently for both scheduling and financial reasons. So I'm stuck for now.

That's it for now. I just thought I'd do a quick update now that I've cracked my password. Yeah!
