1. OMFG! After a year, a veritable saga of drama later, I have my domain! The blog's url is now officially mysummergirlbooks.com! (Actually home.mysummergirlbooks.com, but whatever, I have my domain!) This is a major personal triumph considering all of the utter crap I was put through to get here. Some day I'll probably write a humongous post about the value of customer service on the internet, specifically in blogging. It will outline all of the horrors I experienced. For now, I'm just celebrating.
Hugs, books, rainbows, unicorns and other amazing stuff to Marc Ridey. His patient, understandable and easy tutorial is the only reason I have my domain now. Thank you, thank you, thank you x1000 Mr. Ridey!
2. This week has been an emotional roller coaster. I've lost much, gained much and seen others achieve much. I am overwhelmed. I've never understood how people can withstand such highs and lows. I suppose their only choice is to take it day by day, bird by bird.
3. My GPA was a 4.0 this semester! I got all A's! After how hard I've pushed myself, I am insane levels of proud over this accomplishment. My family and I celebrated by getting Jimmy Johns (Beach Club for me) and a huge rainbow roll from Publix (all for me)!
4. One of my friends has been bitten by the writing bug! Over the years she's written a few fanfictions and been active in encouraging beginning writers. This week she began tossing around ideas with me about an original story idea. I'm so proud of and happy for her. I feel privileged to be one of the people she relies on to discuss writing with.

5. I am 2000% excited over Sarah J. Maas and Susan Dennard's new project! It's called The Starkillers Cycle. They're posting the story (as they write/draft it) online for free! It's a sexy space adventure saga. You can subscribe to the series and learn more about it here. The first two chapters are already live. I hope all of you enjoy it as much as I'm going to! Also, WOAH Elena, that graphic is amazing!
