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
Did I ever update that my book box came? I think I did. My days have been getting jumbled. It’s a lovely Saturday except for the fact that the high is 104 degrees Fahrenheit. I’m definitely staying inside. I am studying at one of my favorite cafes (the one with the delicious grilled cheese). I’m … More Studying Saturday
Not much to update today, other than my Book of the Month box came! I was getting worried because the post office predicted it wouldn’t reach me until August 14th! I now have plenty of books to read for the rest of the month, so get ready for lots of reviews! I had lunch with … More It finally came!
