Summer Reading

At the beginning of the summer I posted an Instagram photo of several books (including Fangirl) and I captioned said photo with the words, “I hope to finish these books within the next two weeks; between summer classes and work I’ll need something fun to read.  What types of books do you turn to in the… Continue reading Summer Reading

The Struggle Is Real

As much as I try to be a purist in terms of using words and phrases that would actually fit into an academic essay I find myself falling prey to the cultural revolution that is internet slang.  I no longer cringe much when I hear people yell out the words, “That is cray-cray,” nor do… Continue reading The Struggle Is Real

Grounded

This will probably be the first of many “thank you” posts as I find myself drawn to the concept of writing ‘letters’ again.  While I toyed for awhile with the idea of writing separate entries for the different groups of people that feature in my life I have come to the decision that open letters just… Continue reading Grounded

The Danger of Dante

It is now March and the days are swiftly spinning away from me.  This next month is chock full of activities, from formals to sorority events to several late night paper writing sessions that have yet to come and I am unsure of how to react.  Part of me feels compelled to pity myself and my fellow… Continue reading The Danger of Dante
