El Fin.

Currently, I am in bed listening to my Pandora Christmas station with my OU pajamas on. Jodi Picoult's latest book is sitting beside me, casually flipped open.
[Pleasure reading? What's that?]
I can tell from the stench that's threatening to take over my cozy little room that I still haven't showered. Actually, I've gotten up once, and that was because I didn't want my bladder to explode all over my comfy jersey sheets.

Oh, did I mention it's past three o'clock on a Saturday afternoon?
Lazy much?

Judge away, my friends.

I've got no place to be, no finals to take. The past five months of writing til my fingers bleed is no more. My semester is over and the fat lady is singing her happy tune.

This is almost as great as how I felt when I finished running the Route 66 and OKC Memorial marathons. Because really, this semester was a marathon for me. 26.2 miles of writing, if you will. They both required diligence and stamina, just in different ways. Personally, I would choose running all those miles than writing another book. No question.

Now, only four hours stand between me and my degree. Christmas is in two weeks. And I've got nothing but time. Sweet, sweet time.

So as my manuscript says on the last page, "THE END!"


  1. It's 5:12 p.m. here in Georgia. And I am still in my pajamas.


    congratulations on finishing!

  2. Congratulations -- you never have to do it again! :) Novel writing, OR school! Your blog is super cute, by the way -- I like all the pictures on the side.

  3. yesss! such a good feeling :)

  4. congratulations!!!
    its gotta be hella nice to kick back now lol.
    oh and thanx for still reading, dipped off the deep end with a soull searching hiatus

  5. Cue the angles singing! Congrats on getting through it and almost graduating!!! P.s. I'm up way too late being lazy and plan on sleeping in and being lazy, so no judgement here!

  6. Congrats, that's awesome! You wrote an entire novel. Wow.

    I'm turning in my last undergrad assignment sometime today via email, and then I can relax, too. Pleasure reading, indeed. I plan on doing A LOT of it.

  7. I would have done the same thing you did and just vegetated all day after the last final was done. Im def not judging that’s for sure. What is Jodi Picoult’s latest book? I love her writing!!
