Literacy Lunacy: K.L. Romo’s Life Before

I usually don’t like historical fiction, so when I cam across Life Before, I was hesitant to read it. Looking over the synopsis, I decided to go against my doubt. The genre may not be my first pick, but K.L. Romo’s unique interlacing of history, reincarnation, and prostitution is well done. I feel this has opened my mind up to a new genre—in books and life. … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: K.L. Romo’s Life Before

Before It’s Too Late

Get ready because I’m about to get morbid. Death is my inspiration. I am literally dying as I write this. The same way you are literally dying as you read it. You’re in the future and I’m in the past. What we do during the time in between—and after—is up to us. Some pretend death is never coming and waste away the minutes doing thing … Continue reading Before It’s Too Late

Literacy Lunacy: Eleanor Coerr’s Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

It’s no secret I adore Japanese culture. Since childhood, I gravitated to shows, books, and art relating to almost anything Japanese. In elementary school, I came across Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes and I immediately knew it was meant for me. While its story is a bit nontraditional for a children’s book, it connects with me even today. It stills sit on my shelf … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: Eleanor Coerr’s Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

Life’s a Hobby

For so long, I thought of my writing as nothing more than a hobby. It was instilled in me that’s all it would ever be. Looking back, I realize that it was always so much more than that. It was my life. Throughout all of elementary, I would stay up late at night and write in bed. I’d use my pillow as cover and the … Continue reading Life’s a Hobby

Scholarly Mind

First post of 2018! Huzzah! I hope you’ve made it a least this far with your resolutions for the year. If not, it’s okay. We all need a little more motivation and effort than most. There’s nothing to be ashamed about. 2019 will be your year, I know it. Before, I mentioned I love learning. I like gathering information and bettering myself through it. I … Continue reading Scholarly Mind

That’s So Fetch

It should be a crime that I didn’t know Mean Girls was based on a book until years later. It’s a self-help called Queen Bees and Wannabees. I haven’t read it and I don’t know if I ever will, but at least the movie is super dope. It is a cult classic, after all. I can’t remember the first time watching Mean Girls, but I … Continue reading That’s So Fetch

You Had Me At Avocado

Back in June, I really committed to my health at last. I was doing fantastic before learning I was pregnant and I fell off my well established habit with the “I’ll get back to it later” mentality. After my son was born, I kept pretending that my unhealthy lifestyle was fine and only temporary. Then it hit me that my son was turning tow years … Continue reading You Had Me At Avocado

Literacy Lunacy: Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner

My sister read this book before I did and recommended it to me while we were in middle school (or maybe high school, I really can’t remember.) My sister isn’t much of a “read for leisure” kind of person, so of course, I had to look into it. Just as a fair warning, Khaled Housseini’s The Kite Runner is not for the weak of nerves. … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner

To Fail is to Succeed

Success and failure are a part of life. They’re how e learn to do anything and everything. Don’t believe me? Then I guess you were born already walking and talking. So often, we confuse success and failure with winning and losing. To me, success is about perfecting a new skill or ability. It’s about being able to do something you couldn’t before. Failing is simply … Continue reading To Fail is to Succeed
