More Delinquence...

It's been a long time since I've posted. That's all I'm going to say on the matter.

Announcement: Life is sweet.

It is so, so good.

I feel so blessed to be interning with the Friend magazine, a publication for children produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I get to read mail from kids all over the world, write stories to my heart's content, and pitch new ideas for the magazine. Oh, and I'm in charge of the recipe, art, and poetry departments, which is about as fantastic a job as I could hope for.

You can check us out at the Friend website, which features the normal magazine departments, as well as coloring, cartoon, and activity pages. Or keep up with us on our Facebook page (managed by yours truly).

In other news, I've submitted an essay for the David O. McKay Essay Contest, and am prepping submissions to BYU's Inscape and the BYU Magazine Essay Contest. Fingers crossed for some moolah!

In other other news, I'm (trying) to get ready for the GRE. Grad school, here I come!

Here's to another outstanding year.

Whaaaat?? That's so cool!! How did you get that job? I want lengthy updates on this subject. Please and thank you.
Maybe now that I have an inside man, I can resubmit that childhood story that was rejected so long ago...

Bribes are welcome.

Also, any sort of story about kids that overcome problems or learn something with an aspect of the gospel would be great... You give me the idea, I write it up, we split it 30-70. Deal? :D
