Furiously Happy

This is definitely a one of a kind book. I have never read anything like this before and I enjoyed every second of it. I felt like I had found someone who FINALLY spoke the same mental language! The random ramblings, the random connections between things that normally aren’t connected, the random reactions, the extra…

Kindred

I picked up this book on a Saturday evening, and by Sunday afternoon I had finished it. I kept telling myself I needed to put it down so I could accomplish other things, but it was not to be so. Many of us had the opportunity to read this book in high school, I, (un)fortunately…

A New Angle to This Blog

I realized over the course of this Spring Break, that wasn’t really a Spring Break, that in order to stay true to my goal of keeping up with this blog, I need to allow myself more breathing room with it. At the end of the day, I like things to not be specific, and it…
