Hello 2010.


And then, just a few weeks ago, as I was buying a Christmas tree, I got the best present ever.

I GOT A JOB.



Needless to say, it was a relief. AND I LIKE IT. A LOT.

In 2009, despite my ordeal, I managed to move into an apartment that I absolutely love. For the first time since I moved to New York, I really have a home. I launched my professional website. I founded a literary quarterly. I continued to write, and thank you to my editors at Bookslut, The Second Pass, This Recording, Time Out New York, Identity Theory, More Intelligent Life, Planet Magazine, and The 99%.

Shout-out to my girl, Lady Gaga. Thanks for giving me something to dance to when times were tough.



Things that kept me going in 2009. Thanks to all.





So here's to you, 2010. Show us what you got.

J-Just read a couple of posts. Your writing is fabulous, as always. You are so artistic and insightful. So sorry to hear about the awful-ness that was 2009 but I am psyched that 2010 seems to be off to a better start! I hope to see you soon, it's been far too long! By the way, love your new website. I did a little cyber-stalking on you haha and it seems you are doing great :)-Alex

Alex! So wonderful to hear from you and to see you're a blogger as well! We have to keep in better touch. Yes, 2009 was terrible and I'm so happy to be kicking its butt out the door. How are you doing? I can't believe you'll be graduating this year, right? I hope you are fantastic.
