So far, April has been a pretty great month.

April 3rd was the first day of spring break and I held my most successful Seder to date. Pretty much everyone showed up, we had some great discussions, and the food turned out well.  I've been working on this for about five years, training a group of mostly non-jews in the tradition, working on the logistics, and I feel like it is finally paying off.  For once, I didn't get to that point in the middle of the seder where you regret having decided to do it and can't wait for it to be over.  That said, my mom and I did have a ridiculous argument at the end of the night, because we were both exhausted.

On the 7th, the husband and I departed for Hawaii on a belated honeymoon.  It was beautiful and warm and relaxing and I am looking forward to getting to a point in our lives where we can go on vacation on a regular basis.  I also finally started on Way of Kings. Needless to say neither of us wanted to go home when the time came on the 13th.  

Last weekend I had a really nice afternoon with my dad and siblings on Saturday and then Sunday I had a very fangirl day.  I had another great multi hour brunch with [livejournal.com profile] hamsterwoman where we talked a lot about education as well as various book and tv series.

Then I saw Kate Mulgrew at her SF book event! Words cannot describe how amazing she is in person (though I would not be the first person to try).  I was really glad my sister ended up going with me.  We both were just struck by her presence, her graciousness, how she manages to seem to elegant and yet approachable at the same time.  She has such a way with words,  in every sense.  It's her syntax and diction as well as her delivery. Also, my brain might have short circuited when Kate Mulgrew called ME a beauty, not once but twice! Fangirl down.

I also have made a lot of character development/outlining progress on my urban fantasy book (I think I am almost ready to start actually writing it) and made the decision to write a romance novel this summer. That is not to say I don't have a lot of fanfiction also on the horizon (I also need to make a post covering everything I've written in the last 6 months to a year).

TV wise, I haven't watched Daredevil yet, but I am really enjoying izombie and its familiar rhythm.  I'm still watching Castle, Elementary, Arrow, and The Flash.  Nothing is really gripping me (at least nothing from this year, I'm still intensely in a Voyager space and having a bit of a Veronica Mars renaissance).   I haven't even watched any of my comedies this year. Actually that's a lie... I was really into Selfie and then they fucking cancelled it.

I have six and a half weeks left of work for this school year.  It's been sort of an anticlimactic work year. I guess that's a sign I'm no longer a newbie.  I also will get permanent status after my first day back at work next year, so yay to that.
