True story: The word "Ozarks" comes from the French aux arcs, which historians think referred to the northernmost bend in the Arkansas River. That landmark was a jumping off place for exploring the mountains to the north-- now known as the Ozarks. And now I can count this as a writing post, because etymology TOTALLY COUNTS. History and language double major FTW.

Another Draft, Another Drift
It's no 30 inch snowpocalypse like they're getting up north, but we're due for another 4-9 inches of snow here today. My brain is completely fried from finishing my fourth draft last night-- which is amazing, since I found every possible distraction (including putting together a nostalgic playlist of things we heard at college dance parties)-- and begging people to read it (please? *insert puppy dog eyes here*). So here are some pictures from last week's snow storm in the Ozarks.
