As much as I enjoy my job and being in London, I sure could use a vacation. But, I just don't know where.

I can not wait until school is over for the summer. I fully plan on relaxing all summer and not doing anything. I deserve it, along with spending time with the most amazing boyfriend ever.

Well, Brooke and I start the year off with 4 children, soon to be 5, as Brooke grows closer to giving birth. As you saw in her post we welcomed Chase Alan Scott and Kingston James Scott to the family. Sydney is our only little girl for a few more weeks. If it wasn't for our nannies we would be going crazy!

Back to the point of this update. The Writers Block will be having a Book Club starting this month. We are also still hiring, more so now that our head Barista Olive is becoming famous.

That being said, the info for the book club is down below. Sign up now.

BIG BOOK CLUB, PART 1
Thursday, January 21 | 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
THIS WINTER: 2666
A two-part book club discussion of Roberto Bolano’s novel, 2666.


The Big Book Club tackles some of the thickest and most enduring novels in world literature. Broken into two sessions over four months, the club invites readers to experience these books at a leisurely pace and to enjoy the companionship of fellow readers making the same journey at the same time.

In 2066, three academics are on the trail of a reclusive German author. A New York reporter on his first Mexican assignment; a widowed philosopher; a police detective in love with an elusive older woman—these are among the searchers drawn to the border city of Santa Teresa, where over the course of a decade hundreds of women have disappeared.

In the words of The Washington Post, “With 2666, Roberto Bolaño joins the ambitious overachievers of the twentieth-century novel, those like Proust, Musil, Joyce, Gaddis, Pynchon, Fuentes, and Vollmann, who push the novel far past its conventional size and scope to encompass an entire era…”

This is the first of two book-club sessions. Attendees are encouraged to read 2666 through Chapter 3 (pg. 349) by this first meeting.

I know that I'm not necessarily very far into my first semester of college, but I don't really feel like I've actually been learning anything. I just want to build and create more things on my own.

I don't make many changes to myself. Even though I'm a shapeshifter and can undo them at anytime, it's something I've always been afraid to do. So I was brave today and.... kinda did a thing.

So I decided to fill out the stuff to get on that dating app they have here. I know it doesn't get used much, but what the hell, right?

So, I almost chose this as my primary photo for it:

But then I realized that, really? That doesn't give a good idea of who I am. I wanted something that describes me entirely in one simple photo. So? I decided to go with this.

There's something to be said for honesty, right?

I just have to say that I am really happy, I love my job, I love my amazing girlfriend, I love my friends, I am just so full of love, as of now. If you know me, I don't really express myself but today I felt that I had to express the loves of my life.

Opening BookHaven was the best decision I've made since arriving here. I get to meet interesting people, talk about and be surrounded by amazing books, and occupy myself with something fun that I can actually make money doing.

I was organizing the fantasy section today, and started looking through an illustrated copy of my all-time favorite book: The Hobbit. And it got me thinking: OMG what if someone from Middle-Earth showed up here??? Can you even imagine? If I met the real Bilbo Baggins... or Lady Eowyn... or holycrapinahat Gandalf? It'd be a good thing I'm a vampire, cause otherwise I'd keel over right there.

Ya know, I'm starting to miss when I was getting gift cards from all of the geek boys in school to say that I did things with them.

Well, I just saw something in my parents bedroom that I never wanted to see. I can’t unsee what my mom plans on doing with it. Ew, next time I’ll just put the laundry basket near the door.

Hey how are you? Got any plans for next Friday?

2020 has only started and it’s pretty great. London is amazing. My job is amazing and even better is my health. Brand new year and I feel like it’s going to be the best. Plus having the a wonderful girlfriend helps too.

A'ight, peeps and peepettes!

I was gonna reveal this on NYE, but as my loyal bartender just stated, I got a little too distracted.

So, I've been working hard with Queen Shiklah (who's taken a surprisingly hands-on role with my music and I love it), and I finished my first new track since showing up here. Thanks to some unexpected pain and betrayal, it was much easier to write than I'd anticipated.

Enjoy, fuckers!

I can't believe my last Christmas band concert is tomorrow. I started off doing marching band at home and I debated giving the French horn up when I got to Storybrook nearly four years ago but Jamie encouraged me not to and I'm glad I listened. Playing in concert is different than marching band but a good kind of different and I still love it. Zander does too, which I guess is fitting considering he was conceived at band camp and his father is a drummer. Music is in his blood.

So, boring Sunday plus three mythical Sugar Fairy Shooters (for real, you guys are in for a TREAT when The Sugar Shack opens) has left me a very hyperactive Izzieperson.
