Reading Like a Kid

I remember reading a lot when I was younger. I gobbled up books one by one, reading whatever took my fancy. Most of them were children's classics, cozy tales with female protagonists. Little Women made me want to be a writer. The Secret Garden inspired me to sketch the plans for my own secret garden, complete with a … Continue reading Reading Like a Kid

What am I Doing?

When I was a teenager, I was awkward. Really awkward. Painfully awkward. I had a hard time talking to people and making friends. I was shy. I was insecure.

Rambles of a College Student

Three weeks in, and so tired. It's cold, my coffee's gone, and I didn't sleep nearly enough. (Lunch is in an hour, so that's a plus.) The wheel in the sky turns over and over. Day class, night class, eight am's. Reading, writing, do again. Oh the Humanities. Three weeks in, and so tired. "Spring … Continue reading Rambles of a College Student
