Books That Would Have Been Improved With a Queer Romance

March Wrap-Up: Back to School

Hello! I just got back from another month of house sitting! I listened to a lot of audiobooks, cooked some nice meals, ordered a bunch of cookies, and watched every single episode of American Nailed It. It was a good time. I also started my practicum course and learned more about developmental editing. Friends. It… Continue reading March Wrap-Up: Back to School
