#goals #help

I almost applied for post-grad school. Can you believe that? I just got done with the whole get-your-education thing (it took me 10 years to get my BA and MA) and I was suddenly considering going back into the mess of deadlines and debt to get my PhD. To avoid making any hasty decisions, I… Continue reading #goals #help

The only occasion when panic is a good thing.

I want to talk to you guys about panic. Not the "sudden overwhelming fear that produces hysterical or irrational behavior," but rather the book Panic by Lauren Oliver. Aren't you relieved? I am. I don't want anyone to panic. Please.   This book. Where do I even begin? It is a character-driven story with so many… Continue reading The only occasion when panic is a good thing.

Why am I still running? Oh yeah. This is why.

I love running. See? This is me post half-marathon, so in love with running. (Also so happy it was over.) The me of 5 years ago would have laughed in your face if you'd told me I'd be a happy, thriving runner today. And yet, here I am, former couch potato, hoping to share with… Continue reading Why am I still running? Oh yeah. This is why.

Time travel on a Tuesday.

Hey, lovelies. How are we today? Surviving the dreaded Tuesday? I ran errands alone today, so, needless to say, it's been a good day. Seriously, who knew that Walmart could be considered a "getaway." (Yes, I know. I have no life.) 😉 I'm so excited about today's book talk because time travel. You heard me!… Continue reading Time travel on a Tuesday.

Book Talk for the first time in a million years.

It's Tuesday! And I have a book to share with you! Want to talk about books with me? It's been awhile. A long while. But I think---and I say this very cautiously---life may be slowing down the tiniest bit. And that's all I need, just a tiny bit of slowing down. Enough to catch my… Continue reading Book Talk for the first time in a million years.

A bit of light reading for a dreary day.

In the interest of starting this week out right, I'll toss a title your way for a little light, witty reading. Sound good? Comedy is a must around these parts. You know, laughter being the best medicine and all that. Have you read Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling?… Continue reading A bit of light reading for a dreary day.

A little fantasy fiction to brighten up our Tuesday. And possibly a small rant on femininity.

Goood morning! I've been to the gym already. There is coffee ready and waiting for me to enjoy at my leisure. It's a beautiful day and, of course, the perfect day to have a little book talk. As you all may know, I'm a girl. As such, I enjoy reading books with female leads. I… Continue reading A little fantasy fiction to brighten up our Tuesday. And possibly a small rant on femininity.

Book hangovers and other Monday problems.

Oh. My. Gosh. You guys. I just finished Veronica Roth's Allegiant. I don't want to spoil any of it for you. I won't, I promise. But you should know that her Divergent trilogy is 100% worth reading. The characters are dynamic and complex and the story is compelling and relevant in all kinds of ways… Continue reading Book hangovers and other Monday problems.
