Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore 8/21/16

August 21, 2016 Sunday Post 24

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.

Last week on FYFA (and in my life):

Well, my kids started a couple of their co-op classes this past week. The nice thing is that we get to ease our way into the school year because some of their classes have started but not all of them. I managed (after jumping through some hoops) to get my 14-year-old signed up for a Japanese I class at our local community college, which he’s very excited about. He starts that class next week. I’m trying to get my curriculum all worked out for my co-op classes that start in September as well. And I take my final exam for my first copyediting class this coming week too. Lots going on!

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog:

      Thanks! It’s always a little tricky getting someone so young signed up for a college class, and they didn’t make the process simple (different people would tell me different things about how we needed to go about getting him enrolled). It was a bit stressful, but he’s over the moon to be doing the class, so it’s worth it!

    Ack hard to believe school is starting already. This summer flew by! I guess they all do. 🙂 Good luck with your exam and w/ the curriculum. I’m loving the Shattering stigmas posts- so much amazingness going on there, seeing everyone share. Very nice, Have a wonderful week.

      I’ve been a freelance editor for a few years now, but I thought it would help my craft (and credibility!) if I got a certificate in copyediting. I’m working on the certificate program through UC San Diego because it’s relatively well-known and trusted – it’s an online program. So far, I’ve only taken one class – Grammar Lab – which hasn’t been too tough because it’s mostly rules I’ve already learned (though naming those parts of speech can still be painful!). I’m enjoying it, and I’m eager to see what the Copyediting I class has in store for me!

      I think if you’ve completed an entire book and put it up on Swoon Reads, you deserve more than the title of “dabbler.” I’ve tried to write some, but never completed a manuscript – I’m definitely dabbling! 🙂

      He just got done with his first class and it seems like he did great. The professor even came by after class to ask if he’d been to Japan because he had said goodbye in such an authentically Japanese way. I think you could probably see the beaming from his smile all the way from there! 🙂

      I was looking at your FB feed yesterday, by the way – love all the pictures! Hope the typhoon is over with and you can get out and enjoy your trip!

    That’s great that your kids are able to ease back into the year like that. The first week or two of classes was always the worst, in both grade school and college, because it was so hard having to suddenly figure out how to deal with so many new classes and new teachers and new requirements and new schedules all at once. And that’s also great that you got your son in the Japanese class! But it does sound like you’ve still got some busy weeks coming up.

    Good luck on your exam! I’m off to read your post about disabilities 🙂

    Good luck on your exam. Japanese, I bet, is a hard language to speak. French is hard for me. I’m reading Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me. It’s very close to a story I wrote.

    That’s great you managed to get your 14 year old in that Japanese class. My boyfriends knows a bit of Japanese and nowadays uses a site to train his Japanese more. Good luck with your exam!

    Thanks for mentioning my birthday :).

    Wow I never realized how many pre-order deals there were. I actually got a pre-order deal earlier this year for a book I had pre-ordered and then everyone who had pre-ordered the book could get an e-copy with short stories in that series. Thanks for listing all those giveaways, will go and check a few of them out now. I hope you’re having a great week!

    I hope your final exam in your copyediting class went fabulously! Fingers crossed! And I love that you wrote about your fantastic planning lol. That’s been me lately with my traveling schedule. August has been such a crazy busy month, I can’t wait for list to slow down a little. 🙂 Hope you had a great week!
