Hey all, I'm still trying to ease my way back into regular blogging, but I always seem to be doing something else and don't think of it until I'm lying in bed trying to fall asleep. Oh well, it happens, right? Anyway, I found this tag over at Me and Ink and decided it would … Continue reading Me as a Writer: The Writer’s Tag
Panic. Chaos. Disaster. Well, not really, but some people did freak out. The other day at work our Internet connection went out at around two-thirty in the afternoon, which is about three and a half hours before we closed. Let me tell you, it was a long three hours. At first, it didn't seem like … Continue reading When the Library Loses Internet
Like most of us bookworms of the world, I have a TBR list that goes on for miles and I'll probably be crushed by my stack of unread books one day. Everyday it seems like my TBR list grows and I'm constantly taking out books from the library or buying new ones on Amazon or … Continue reading Project Home Library
I recently went to my old middle school and high school to donate copies of my book and do a little bit of promotion (at the middle school) to hopefully get them interested in reading Standing By. Going to the schools was surreal, of course, since nothing has really changed inside of them. It's even … Continue reading Nostalgia
After I finished school one of my best friends and I went to Canada for the last weekend in April. It was the first time either of us were going out of the country and though Canada is right there, it was still so different. Especially since we went to Montréal of all places in … Continue reading Oh Canada!
Two years of stress, tears, and work have come to an end. I am done with graduate school! I submitted my final assignments earlier this morning and I'm beyond relieved! There have been some easy times and some times when I really thought that I would not finish. Two years went by pretty fast, though … Continue reading Operation Graduate School: Complete
So we are three days into the new year and I've read 2 1/2 books so far. I'd say that's a pretty good start for my reading goal! This year I'm staring my Goodreads Challenge at 50 books, since I read more than that the past two years. It is possible that the number will … Continue reading My 2019 Reading Challenge
Well, it's the last day of the year and I'm glad to say that once again I crushed my reading goal. I originally only said I'd read 25-30 books, and then when I got close to that goal, I raised it to 45... then again to 55 books. I still beat that final goal by six … Continue reading My Year in Books
A problem that I have come across in recent years is looking up book reviews before deciding to buy or even read a book. This is an issue because I might end up missing out on a really good book or end up hating one that everyone else loves. I've been more conscious of this … Continue reading The Review Issue
Well, I hope everyone has enjoyed at least some part of their Labor Day weekend. I certainly did, and no, I didn't go to any cookouts. Instead, I'm three for three going to bookstores all weekend. But I won't go into that. The end of Labor Day weekend means a few different things. The end … Continue reading One More Year
July went by too fast if you ask me. One moment it's here and the next thing I know it's my best friend's birthday. What happened? The month went by so fast in fact, that I have now just realized that it's been a few weeks since I've posted. This was more due to a … Continue reading Where Did July Go?
Happy Independence Day my fellow Americans! This holiday is a great one to celebrate in remembering the founding of our country and in a sense, remembering those who have given their lives to keep us an independent country... right from the start. But with celebrating this holiday I think we all need to remember one … Continue reading Respect on the 4th
No one likes waiting, especially in this fast-paced society we live in. That's why we have overnight shipping and Amazon Prime - we want our things right away. We want our news right away, so instead of waiting for the 5pm news, we go online. But sometimes, we do have to wait. And while patience … Continue reading Patience is a Virtue, But I Still Hate Waiting
