1. I posted about this earlier in the week, but I am so happy about my decision to subscribe to Creative Nonfiction. Reading this issue was relaxing and inspiring. It’s great to have another resource to turn to when I’m stuck in my own writing. Now I’m just sad that they only publish four issues a year.
2. Northwestern headed back to school this week, which means that I am returning to once weekly trips up to Evanston. It’s a long commute for me, but it means that I get to see this view from the lake fill on campus. It is hands down my favorite view of the Chicago skyline.
3. This is admittedly completely random, but I’m working with a poetry class this quarter, and the professor included Jay Z lyrics in the course pack. Is that not entirely awesome?
