After that lovely Thanksgiving break, I’m back with some exciting news for the blog! I am adding a new category to A Geeky Gal! Monday Musings are going to be a small place for me to share my poetry and short stories. I know they’re not really geeky, but I talk about mental health here too, so I think we can make this a happy medium!
Every Monday (well, not every Monday, but a lot!) I hope to share some personal poetry from my old notebooks and social media as well as some short stories that are old and new! My Thanksgiving Day post really pushed me to give this a shot. Let me know what you think. Stay tuned for the very first installment right after this post!
It was a cool afternoon in Alabama. The leaves had fallen, school was out for the week, and I was an awkward teenager visiting my (ex) boyfriend’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. I had carefully picked out my outfit and did my hair. I even applied a little make up besides just doing eyeliner which was my signature makeup look during high school. I really wanted to make a good impression on his family after all.
The introductions went without incident. In fact, most of the afternoon went fine! I felt a little less awkward by the time dinner was ready. I grabbed my plate and headed towards the Thanksgiving spread. After getting a little bit of everything, I sat with my (ex) boyfriend and started digging in.
Slowly everyone emerged from the kitchen to take a seat with their full plates. I was still chowing down and pretending to watch whatever football game was playing on TV. Then I heard his mother clear her throat pointedly. I looked over, and everyone was staring at me. Even my (ex) boyfriend.
While this is really a personal milestone and not a WordPress achievement, I wanted to take the time to say thank you to all of you.
When I started A Geeky Gal, I never thought I’d have 100 followers, let alone 350 followers. That many people like my stuff? You gotta be kidding me! With help from friends, family, and readers, this blog has truly blossomed. It wouldn’t be the blog it is today without readers like you.
Readers like you make this all worthwhile. You read, like, share, and comment on my posts. You make blogging feel rewarding. You make all of this worth it. You make my hard work feel validated.
Hello readers! In case you have no clue what’s been going on at House Geek since the 30 Day Anime Challenge, we’ve been preparing for our wedding on October 13th. “But you’re already married,” I hear you say. Yes, that is true!
