I just had my first experience of being an authority figure handling a dangerous situation. Let me tell you, it’s scary. A student approached the teaching team to inform us that there was someone stalking and possibly videoing a student in the women’s bathroom. Three of the team went to follow the suspect and call … More Apologize Later
Happy Saturday, everyone! I am one lucky woman and have zero plans for the day. My only plans are to spend the day immersed in really good books and hopefully getting another chapter or two written in my latest novel. Minor Update: Yes, I am still loving Scrivener and will likely be purchasing it to … More Cafes and Culture
How do I begin this? I lost my faith in undergrads and then regained it about two seconds later. I was walking to my building. It was the height of class changes, and undergraduates were rushing to get to class. One was in a giant hurry and cut me off in the process of maneuvering … More Oh, what a day
It’s about that time for another daily musing. I post these less and less as book reviews and advocacy take up most of my time. As we can all agree, January felt like it lasted about 100 years. I am very happy to be in February and getting on with the year. The days are … More January 2020 Update
It’s December 30th, 2019 which means it’s time for a post full of self-reflection and cliches. I’ll start by acknowledging that I think this is the very first time I have posted a picture of myself here. What started as an anonymous blog has morphed into something I am proud to take ownership of… a … More Welcome to 2020
It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything other than a book review. As my 25th birthday approaches and I reflect on what 24 brought me, I decided to take some time to acknowledge what’s been going on and what I’ve learned. As you probably know from my previous blog, I successfully passed my … More Thoughts as I approach 25…
As you know, I went on vacation last weekend. Except it was definitely the type of vacation where you are more tired after you get back. Friday finally came and I was so happy to be able to have a relaxing weekend. I have spent my time reading (although I am not too thrilled about … More Finally a Restful Weekend
It’s been a long time! Time for a 50% photo-blog! I’ve been reading at a much slower pace, and I went on vacation so there was not much time for blogging. Last week I passed my qualifying exam which took a bunch of stress away. I am finally back to researching and getting data! To … More Vacation Time!!
Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted a musing for the day. I’ve been sticking to the book reviews, plus life has not been exciting enough to post about lately. I’ve been working a lot. So much so, that I am officially on hiatus from working on my novel and will hopefully pick … More Taking an update break?
I walked out this morning and instead of being hit with the normal wall of hot, humid air, I felt a temperate breeze. Hopeful, I pulled open my weather app to see what the high was for today. Don’t fret. I was immediately crushed. Today, the high is 103 Fahrenheit and it “feels like” 108. … More Just another week
