Your Voice, Your Vote

Every election day is essential for the survival of democracy, but today feels particularly important. The United States is standing at a threshold, and we need every person to speak out as to the direction s/he wants the country to take. Today’s elections will have very real consequences for the future of this country, for…

Other ways to occupy my time

It may not sound like I have many hobbies or time for much beyond attending dance practices and competitions or chauffeuring Holly throughout three different states, and really, I probably don’t when compared to others. However, the one hobby I do have is that I cross-stitch. (I don’t count reading as a hobby because, well,…

Suck it, 2016

The end of the year is always a time for reflection and retrospection. It is the chance to look back on the year and remember the highs as well as the lows, to view your personal and professional growth, and review your progress on your goals. I have been doing that and have come to…

Saturday Goodies

I’ve got nothing this week other than a few bookish odds and ends. I mentioned last week, Armchair BEA is back on, and now we are even on Facebook! Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter as well. Why yes, I did see The Hunger Games on its opening day. I’m still blown away too much…
