101 in 1001 | Update & End Date

Today marks the end date to my 101 in 1001Β and I have some very mixed feelings about it. First of all, if you don’t know what 101 in 1001 is, it’s a list of 101 things to accomplish in 1001 days. I made my list (which took all day of some hard thinking and a […]

“Quiet People Have The Loudest Minds”

Ever since last April, I’ve been journaling like my life depends on it. I’ve kept a journal ever since I was eight, but began doing it as “my thing” back in high school. Every time I would go to the bookstore, a trip to the journal and notebook section was a must. My collection of […]

July Book of the Month

If you’ve been following my Book of the Month series, you may have noticed I didn’t do May or June. I slowed down my reading due to a few things. First, we had a personal family related issue going on, and secondly, my library nonfiction books were holding my attention and I wanted to get […]

March Book of the Month

We’re almost midway through the month and I just finished my February book of the month this past Sunday! Oopsies! Even though it was a quick read and I finished the majority of it in two days, my schedule at the end of the month allowed little focus time on my book. It was a […]

A Little Catching Up To Do

Connecting The Old Fashioned Way

The first time I had to move and leave my best friends, I was nine. I made sure to get everyone’s addresses and promised to write. If we couldn’t see each other anymore, the next best thing was to be pen pals. I kept up this trend well into my early twenties, and obsessing over […]

Quotation Marks

And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. -T.S. Eliot

Lady Lazarus, By Sylvia Plath

For a brief period of time I was interested in poetry. And correct me if I’m wrong, but it’s almost a dying art. My guess is that words in music have become our modern poetry. Back in my Junior or Senior year of high school, I became attracted to Sylvia Plath. It probably wasn’t her […]
