It’s happened again.
Months have gone by without me posting a single thing. At least this time , it was for a good reason.
As the regular readers know, I came back from Korea a while ago and since then, have been trying to readjust. I was able to explore the States a little , bounced from one freelance gig to another , and finally started taking strides to do something I’ve been planning on doing since college: have a career in the publishing industry.

At last I’m finally settled with a great job and a great temporary apartment. Since everything changed practically overnight ( I went on an interview, started working the next day , and after losing several apartments , found the best one yet and moved in hours later) I felt like I haven’t really had a chance to breathe until recently.
Now that I have free time again , I can devote it to Girl and Her Pink Backpack.
