Thoughts on the Election

I’ve tried to start this post a dozen times. Every time I try to put how I feel into words, I draw a blank. I guess that’s how I’ve been feeling since Tuesday. Blank. Empty. Numb. Stricken. Donald Trump—a man who has admitted both to sexually assaulting women (note at the bottom of the article…

Not Top Ten Tuesday…sorry

Hi friends! My apologies, I totally forgot about Top Ten Tuesday today. Although looking at the topic, I don’t think I would have been able to come up with 10 anyway, so maybe it’s better this way. I do want to share some exciting news with you, though: I’m engaged! My boyfriend (*ahem* my fiance) took…

What if you had won the Powerball lottery?

Okay, so, who here bought a Powerball ticket (or several) this week? I thought about it, but I never actually did it. As large lottery jackpots are wont to do, this one has been provoking some conversations about what people would do if they actually won. As someone who thinks about this on a fairly…

My collection of Stephen King books. When I stood up it came about to my hip, probably. I'm not that tall but it's still a lot of books.

I’m baaaaaaaaaack

Yes, believe it or not, I’m finally back from the depths of the “I just moved so my life is a shambles” swamp. I’ve been reading quite a bit, though not anything that I promised I would (I brought a bunch of my old Stephen King novels back to Maryland from my parents’ house at…

Moving Day!

Hi all, I’m sorry I don’t have a review for you this week, but I’m spending the weekend moving to a new apartment so I’ll be closer to my office (I’ve been commuting an hour each way for a year, and now I’ll be only 10 minutes away!). Here’s our new place: I hope you…

Not Top Ten Tuesday

Hi all, I’m spending some time at home with my family this week, so I didn’t have a lot of time to write a post. But I’ll be back next week! In the meantime, for those of you in the US, enjoy Independence Day! And for everyone: enjoy these lovely pictures of fireworks: And finally…don’t…

So many thanks!

I know this is horribly delayed, but I wanted to acknowledge and thank Lauren at A Novel Idea (formerly A Novel Place) for nominating me for the Liebster Blog Award and Erica at I Broke My Glasses Again for nominating me for the Beautiful Blogger Award. I’m new to this whole “blogging award” thing so…

Ah, and finally, an image that caters nicely to my OCD.

Some Changes

Dearest followers, I’m guessing some of you have noticed that I’ve been incessantly messing with my blog layout these past few days. I think I’ve got it basically where I want it, so I should be calming down soon, but I want to thank you for your patience and apologize for any confusion I may…

World Stats?!

Sorry if I’m a bit behind the times on this one, but I just discovered on my stats page that I can see WHERE in the world my views are coming from! How cool is it that I’ve had two views from Vietnam? I’ve had like 5 from Ghana, a few from Colombia, quite a…
