Just a doctoral student trying to maintain her love for reading while keeping up her writing, all whilst not burning down the lab

This reading journey began more in 2015, during my gap-year between my undergraduate career and graduate school. During this year I decided to reignite my past obsession with reading; I had let it go during my undergraduate schooling. Let us say that textbooks do not endear one to pleasure reading. As I commenced this endeavor, I decided to give myself direction. I realized, even with having just finishing my bachelor’s degree, that my knowledge on a variety of topics was severely lacking. So, I decided to fill this void by focusing on atypical topics, authors of colors, intersectional feminism, non-Eurocentric history and whatever else would come my way that I deemed worthwhile.

Enjoy with me this journey for the pursuit of knowledge that our current system does not deem to be necessary common knowledge.
