First, the project that I’ve been secretly working on for months has, as of Tuesday, finally gone public. Introducing:
Yes, it’s a literary magazine. An online journal of Asian American poetry. My collaborator Mia and I are super passionate and excited about this project. The full site, blog, and submissions/reading period will launch in October, but at the moment we’re celebrating that we have a place to live on the web! We also have a Facebook Fan Page, and a brand-spanking-new Twitter account. Please follow us, add us, blog about us — do whatever you can to help spread the word!
Second, I turned 24 today. In celebration of which, my most-stupendously-wonderful boyfriend bought me the BEST. GIFT. EVER:
Big Sister, Little Sister. (And a very messy desk).
It’s a new netbook computer – and I cannot get over how CUTE it is — so tiny and so light! It’s like carrying a standard sized hardcover book, and it fits perfectly in my bag. Now I can travel and work in cafe’s without having to lug my larger (heavier) laptop out and about. Or I can tuck it in a tote to reference online readings in class, or use it to multitask: one screen for LR accounts, one screen for personal stuff. Thank you, D!
I am so freaking excited – new magazine, new twitter account, new facebook fan page, new computer, all in the course of a week. It’s almost too much to take in. 24 has been awesome so far. And I can’t wait for it to get even better.🙂
