September in Review

Since I’m planning to move out, I’ve been doing my best to take advantage of opportunities to explore my home country/state/town. In September, I attended a friend’s wedding over Labor Day weekend, which also gave me the chance to explore and enjoy Charlevoix, MI.

It’s My Blogiversary!

It’s been one year since I published my first post, a rambling little introduction to my blog and myself where I attempted to predict what this blog would become. I had graduated from college the previous May with a degree in creative writing. The course I completed was a highly selective thesis program in which I worked one-on-one with my professors to assemble a manuscript of short fiction. In my mind, this was enough to qualify me as an accomplished writer, and accomplished writers all have their own websites.

What’s Antipodal Pull?

I’ve been in the process of doing a major overhaul and the new name is just the tip of the iceberg! With the new name comes the new URL, updating all the links, and—wait for it—the new social media!
