Hello again, strangers!

At 10:07 pm, I pressed the "submit" button to turn in the final assignment for the final class that completes my degree program. It's been four long years of taking one or two classes each semester and summer while working full time and trying not to entirely withdraw from regular life. 


I feel great! Now I'm eyeing my TBR shelves and wondering where to start. I want to read just for pleasure. A book that has no potential to improve me academically, intellectually, professionally, or personally, but is just reading for the pure joy of story and character and escape. 


Also, I see I have 538 notifications since I last joined you all on BL a few months ago. I have a lot of catching up to do. I hope you are all still here!
