Out For LunchFebruary 16, 2014
|Halloween in the dorm room-- this picture was taken by my amazing roomate who not only puts up with my eccentricism but has become one of my closest friends!|
The microwave is humming in the background as I eagerly await a cup of hot herbal tea. I am back at home, and most of my family is asleep already. I've adapted too well to a midnight bedtime.
Today my grandparents visited and told me that I needed to put some sort of "Out For Lunch" post up on my blog so that people wouldn't think I simply abandoned it. That's when I realized that I haven't written a proper post since September! Here it is, February, and I have so much to write about and so many pictures to share that every time the thought of blogging crosses my mind, I shut down the thought so that I don't overwhelm my brain.

Well, consider this my "Out For Lunch" post! As I can fit time in between homework and work, I'll start getting this blog back into shape. :) Pip pip toodle-dee-do for now!
P.S. I have a new website! www.shaylynnann.com It's still in the works (and always will be!) but for now it's a nice little hub for all of my online artistic-ness.
