A Bit of Thanks

Manners are important. They define you are as a person. It drives me crazy when someone can’t manage a please or thank you. Too often, it’s people who believed their entitled who don’t say so. Whether that’s simply them or a failure on their upbringing, I don’t know. What I do know is if you need something, you don’t demand. You ask and add a … Continue reading A Bit of Thanks

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

The Best Reason To Smile

We burden ourselves too much with negativity. Self-doubt creeps in before we can start on something we’re passionate about. As a child, I learned that smiling always made the people you interacted with smile, too. If you were having a good day, someone else would as a chain reaction. So, naturally, I adopted the habit. It sounds silly, especially in a world where women are … Continue reading The Best Reason To Smile

Literacy Lunacy: Jeannette Walls’ The Glass Castle

Know that I am furious I have not seen the movie to this yet! I missed the opportunity while it was in theaters and I’m still waiting to hear if it’s out on DVD. I read Jeannette Walls’ novel for a class and I’m glad we did because I don’t believe I would have come across it on my own. Before I even finished it, … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: Jeannette Walls’ The Glass Castle

Literacy Lunacy: Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita

Where do I even begin with this novel? I picked it up for a summer read a while back and never got around to read it. After unpacking my books, I came across it and decided it was about time to do so. Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita holds a taboo topic, but makes the reader wonder what is going to happen next for this educated yet … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita

A Treasure Worth More Than Gold

A while back, I decided to get off of social media– Facebook, specifically. Ironic because I’m sure this is where you cam across this post. My reason being is that is’t become a waste of time and a lot of “friends” shared nothing but bad news. It was taking a serious toll on my anxiety, I did what was best for me and deleted the … Continue reading A Treasure Worth More Than Gold

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
