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 than a year ago, 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.
