What have I been up to lately?

I realize I've been noticeably quiet for the past few months, and therefore it's necessary for me to check in on what I've been up to. I got involved in a project celebrating Redmond's centennial through poetry, and we worked on writing ekphrastic poetry through April and May. We had our final culminating event on June 9th at SoulFood Books in Redmond, which was a total blast!

I re-started my Twitter page, which I abandoned back in 2009. I also wrapped up my freshman year of high school, and I'm happily enjoying my summer!

One of the first things I did to kick off my summer was catch up on sleep. Almost immediately afterwards, I started packing, and on Thursday we flew out to Philadelphia for Digital Family Summit. It was my first time in Philly, and I absolutely loved my time there! As I previously mentioned, I was a part of a three-person teen panel titled "Growing Up Digital" (the subject matter is pretty self-explanatory, I think!). Being a part of this panel and meeting such an incredible variety of people was such a treat!
