I'm ALIVE!!!

I am so sorry for going MIA for a little while there...

Life hit me pretty hard, and I had a difficult time getting on top of it, and, as should happen in such cases, something had to give. So 52 Weeks of Wordage had to go on hiatus for a bit.

But I'm quasi-back! Yay!!!

Here's the plan:

Make It Up Monday will still happen, but it will be every other week, starting this coming Monday.
I'm going to make an attempt at posting every other day depending on my work load at both school and work, but it may not be quite every other day. We shall see.
Weekends will be my main posting time. Saturdays and Sundays galore of posting!

Once school is out for Winter Break, normal posting will resume, and I'll maintain that until life gets too hectic in the Spring semester. After that, I'll be FREE from the confines of school and will be able to post with wild abandon!! Glory, glory hallelujah!

At any rate, it's 3am, and I have school in the morning. Must sleep.

Thank you all for your e-mails and comments. Knowing that I was missed totally made my day/week/life.

You're all wonderful and lovely!

Hey Stef,

Glad ur alive.
Just wanted to say I checked out ur singing page before and your voice is really beautiful. I think even more so than Jason Derulo... sorry, not a big fan of him! Although several other Aussies I know love him! I like singing too... but I haven't actually studied it before like you. So I find what you are doing to be very interesting! :D
Anyway, take care... and I look forward to more blog posts!

I'm not going to lie- I was definitely a little concerned that we haven't heard from you in so long... glad you're feeling better!

Hi Stef,

Don't be concerned about the quantity...just keep the quality as good as it always has been. Glad you're back!

Omg.. not gonna lie.. I missed you and I'm stoked you're still alive and that it was just life that kept you away instead of pneumonia or something! Hahaha... now, if I may take the liberty... I know you're busy, but could you post the winners for the last Make It A Monday? Specifically because I entered, for the first time, and I'm kind of excited to see whether I win... but either way I love you and your stuff is awesome and I'm just thankful you're back. :D

I know what it's like to have life take over. I haven't been posting nearly as much as I would like. I miss reading your entries. I hope you are doing well.
Like you, I've found life a trifle full of late. I'm glad you're doing something to diminish your stress - even though it means we'll see you posting less often. Our loss!

Glad your world is crazy instead of ruined. :) I understand I'm a full time single mom and a student and a writer...yikes what a mix huh? anyway...I'll keep looking for your posts. :)

Soft Things

Make a list of soft things.


This should be easy enough, shouldn't it?

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…

"Yellow List"

Exercise #83 : "Yellow List"
What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious.
Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.
