An Indecisive Person’s Guide to Summer Reading (Or Why I Don’t Read Books Anymore)

I do read, just not with physical books. (I prefer to sleep with them under my pillow and absorb the content through dream osmosis.) Not really, but now that I just thought of this, I’ve decided that’s what I’m going to tell people when they ask. For the past 6 months or so, I’ve been…… Continue reading An Indecisive Person’s Guide to Summer Reading (Or Why I Don’t Read Books Anymore)

Book Club Minutes: Meeting #3 (Or When Did Everyone Get So Busy?)

So one of the worst thing about being in your mid-20s is that everyone is suddenly so dang busy!

Reading Not-For-Pleasure (Or How I Aged 50 Years Overnight)

So I figured my first hobby post about reading would be about my newly-created (and still somewhat imaginary) book club. Unfortunately, even though we chose a book (and it’s sitting on my nightstand right now), I still haven’t quite mustered up the enthusiasm to dig into it. Don’t get me wrong – I love reading…… Continue reading Reading Not-For-Pleasure (Or How I Aged 50 Years Overnight)

It’s Happening! (Or How I Discovered That My Friends Are Pretty Amazing People)

So I’m only 2 and a half days into this endeavor and it’s already working! (Prepare yourself for a lot of exclamation points in this post. I’m super excited.) When I was writing last night, I was struggling to create an interesting post and was starting to worry that I’d gotten in over my head.…… Continue reading It’s Happening!
