Daily Prompt: In the Summertime

Theoretically, summer will return to the polar-vortex-battered Northern Hemisphere. What are you looking forward to doing this summer? If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, what are your fondest memories of Summer past? —

This summer will be the first summer that I don’t move back home between (spring & fall) semesters. I will be attending the School of International Linguistics @ UND–SIL partners with my university–in order to complete my linguistics minor… and I’ll have a job, because Captain and I are getting an apartment together and, hello: bills.

So with my classes and job and, you know, maintaining a healthy relationship, I’ll be keeping pretty dang busy. I’ve also resolved to work out on a daily basis because the 20 pounds that I gained over the winter–and at least 20 of their nasty friends–need to scram. Plus, I keep reading that exercise helps relieve the symptoms of depression–and that would be a really good thing for me.

Honestly, though, I think it’ll be good to have a bit of a schedule set up. I’ll still have free time, during which I’ll probably do just about the same things that I always do: write, read, blog, paint, craft, party–just kidding; you need friends for that–etc. But I’m hoping to visit a pool or something at least once. That’d be fun.

Ooh! And my brother’s wife is supposed to have their baby sometime in June!! I’m on the cusp of aunthood, and I love it. So I’ll be spending a weekend with them for the sake of baby. And Captain’s sister’s family is driving in from Maine at the end of the month, so I’m sure I’ll be spending some time with them as well. Their baby will be turning 1 right around then, so that’ll be a lot of fun, too. (=



I have an MA in Publishing, Literature & Writing, with special emphasis on digital publishing and web development. I also have a BA in English Language & Literature with a minor in Linguistics. I am interested in the social impact of literature, LGBTQIA+ media, intersectional feminism and sociolinguistic analysis. I host a queer-focused book club, and have a bad habit of buying ten times more books than I will ever be able to read.
