(is it okay that I am doing a good things post?)

Today, three good things happened, so I wanted to brag about them:

1. Curtis Sittenfeld liked one of my tweets and responded to my fangirling response. Her book Prep meant a whole lot to me when I was younger, so this meant a lot to me!

2. A manuscript was accepted today in a journal published by my professional association (so good readership!)

3. A proposal for an oral presentation was accepted today for a national conference (and just a few days ago, I found out that a symposium I co-chaired was accepted for a major national conference - and I’ll present in that symposium too!). One of these talks is on the effects of the election on LGBTQ people - eep! (spoiler alert - it’s not positive!)

What’s new and good in your lives?
