An Important Announcement Regarding 'Things Girls Do After Graduation'

The first edition of “Things Girls Do After Graduation” came out on May 1st, 2015. It was my first full day as a writer here, and it was an idea that was hatched a couple weeks before. Since that very first one, I’ve released at least one per week, largely and almost exclusively on Wednesdays. Christmas, Independence Day, mid-vacation – you can fact check it. I haven’t missed a week.

But now, it’s time for an announcement.*

After 150 of these, it’s time to take a break. Yes, a break. It’s not you, it’s me. Before you get all up in arms and comment, “How could you let them get engaged and then just take a break?”, allow me to explain.

This isn’t a long break by any stretch of the imagination. It could be as little as three weeks, it could be as long as six weeks. I don’t know yet. But what I know is that on the heels of the single-most important week we’ve had with it, it’s time to regroup, strategize, and make an outline for what the series is about to become.

I’ve known I was going to do this “break” for a while now but I didn’t want to do it before a proposal occurred. A proposal was, for all intents and purposes, the main goal of this first leg of this series. And now we’re here.

This break does, in fact, come at a very convenient time for all of us. You’re busy. I’m busy. The holidays are a whirlwind and, to be completely honest with you, fewer people read the site (and the series) around this time than during normal work weeks. It’s the perfect opportunity to take a step back and hit the ground running come the new year.

In the meantime, catch up if you haven’t already. Or just keep hate-commenting about how spineless Todd is for proposing. Either works for me.

*Big ups to anyone who thought this was a book deal announcement, which has been a question I’ve been asked more than anything as of late. My inbox is open, Penguin.
