One of the greatest joys of 2019 has been working with @ae_rosenthal, who, when I told her I was leaving this job, asked me to be her editor on the most personal thing she's ever written. I am so honored and so proud of her, and this is beautiful: austin360.com/zz/entertainme…

I bought a car today and the first place I drove was to @CaboBobs
Last week I was like “hey why don’t I just buy a new car the same week that I’m trying to start a new job oh and also it’s the holidays so in addition to being stressed I’ll also have zero free time” so I am doing great!

Miss y'all already 😭
Baby Yoda pressing buttons in the spaceship = me trying to figure out how to drive my boyfriend’s car since I got rid of mine last week
I have no idea what’s going on in this Star Wars show but I can confidently say I would die for Baby Yoda
The thing I really didn’t consider about getting a new job is where I’m gonna put nearly a dozen desk plants (my boyfriend does not know they’re all coming home with me but he’s gonna find out in like a half hour) https://t.co/h5NYsfHLOT
"And yet, every time I go to Donn’s on a Monday night, inevitably I ask myself: Why am I not here all the time?" is a big ol' mood. Love this piece by @Blackstock360 on one of my favorite places in town: austin360.com/entertainment/…
Tough loss for the team. Big get for @texasbookfest. Best of luck to the “Koblasnek Kid.” twitter.com/psencikk/statu…
 
This is the only thing I’ll answer to now
Hello! I suppose it's time for some really bittersweet personal news. It's my last week at Gannett/GateHouse & my last week in the @statesman newsroom. The past 3 years have been some of the best of my life, both professionally and personally, and I will desperately miss it here.
 
Next week, I'm joining the team at @texasbookfest as the communications & marketing coordinator. Reading was the first thing I can remember truly loving. I can't wait to spend every day encouraging others to share in that love. As always, send book recs!

Today is a “I planned my day poorly so I’m driving with the windows down because I didn’t have time to blow-dry my hair” type of day, everything is fine!
The show ended and I asked Ryan, “What now?” and he responded quietly, “There’s nothing left.”
If anybody just heard loud yelling and cursing in South Austin it’s because we just watched the finale of Great British Baking Show and this house is UN.HAPPY.

Ever since I moved to south Austin from the east side I’ve joked about living in the ‘burbs which I know is not factually accurate but I did just tell my boyfriend “I really want to go to the haunted car wash this week” so I mean, I’m not far off

I’m trying to move slowly through part one of the new season of @BoJackHorseman so I can savor it, but I watched the first two episodes this morning and I can’t stop thinking about them. I will be so incredibly sad when this show officially ends.
