THINGS I WAS ANXIOUS ABOUT TODAY (3/3/16)
Ranked from least to most important
- •Progress on my manuscriptIz ok. I worked late. I edited 40 pages! (Not well! But that's ok! I gotta go over em again anyway!)
- •Being late to POUNDIf you are unfamiliar with POUND-- it looks ridiculous, bc you're basically doing Pilates while drumming with neon green plastic drumsticks, but trust me: it's tough.
- •Taking cough medicine and Zyrtec and realizing a second later I wasn't sure how they'd interact.I genuinely freaked ab this one. Forget that ppl apparently routinely mix codeine and booze and live to tell the tale; I, Anna Shafer, was going to be the girl who died from slightly too much allergy medication. (The pharmacist said I was fine. I recommend calling your pharmacy both pre-meds-taking AND pre-freakout.)
- •Listening to the Eisley cover of Leaving on a Jet Plane that Maggie Stiefvater tumblr'd and tagged Blue Sargent and The Raven King.I listened to it 1.5 times and literally sobbed at the idea that the novel could end with Gansey dying (even dying well! who gives a crap? I want this teenage kid to have a long life and love his friends forever!) and all the kids splitting up and going their separate ways. I. SOBBED. I am an actual lunatic.
