Stress. This last summer has been a whirlwind of ups and downs entirely built on stressful circumstances. At least, that’s how I’ve felt. A few weeks ago, I completed my MLIS degree—thank goodness—officially ending my school career. No matter what anyone says, I vow that I will never get my Ph.D. Of course, I said… Continue reading Wise Words #2: Living in the Now
I have a feeling that "March Madness" will be the perfect words to describe the atmosphere of this next month. But this sort of madness has nothing to do with sports. Instead, I'll be mad with school and with preparing for my big test at the end of the month...which I have to pass to… Continue reading Celebrate National Reading Month!
Awhile back, I wrote a guest post for the Nerdy Book Club blog about some of my favorite books to read for story time at the library. Unfortunately, I could only list the top ten books, but there are a lot more that I'm going to share with you today. Since writing my guest post,… Continue reading My Ultimate List of Children’s Books
Though homework is calling out to me, wanting to be completed as soon as possible, I am intentionally stifling the cry in order to write this blog post. Believe me, doing homework is an easy thing to delay--though sometimes not wise. But don't worry, I still have plenty of time to focus on school in… Continue reading Wise Words #1: Removing Myself, Inserting God
I've recently realized a pattern in my blogging habits--the more I have to do, the more I want to blog. When I first started my blog (nearly three years ago!!!), I was also starting graduate school. As if I wouldn't already have enough to do, I added blogging to the list. That first month was… Continue reading The Blogging Cycle
It seems that Valentine's Day is the event which will resurrect my blog. Only, my blog wasn't dead...just hibernating for a little while. I've written a lot about Valentine's Day in the past. For example, I wrote about how much I love Valentine's Day. Another time, I wrote about mine and my sister's nerdy Valentine's… Continue reading 7 Lovely Love-Songs for Valentine’s Day
Guys, I'm a little (or a lot) excited today because I wrote a guest post--my very first guest post--for the Nerdy Book Club blog, and it was published TODAY! It's so exciting to see my name posted in places other than on my blog or on the top of school assignments. The blog I wrote… Continue reading My First Guest Post! ~Nerdy Book Club
It's nearly half-way through October, and I haven't mentioned a thing about Halloween. This year has sped by, and it's so shocking to realize that Christmas really is just around the corner. I love Halloween and autumn and will enjoy the pumpkins, the autumn leaves, and the Halloween candy, but--for me--Christmas is the light at… Continue reading Happy (Almost) Halloween!
Since sharing one of my favorite poems with you all last week, I've dug out some of my own poetic works to reread and reminisce. I am not a great poet, by any means, but I do have a few poems that I wrote in my poetry classes during college. Most of my poems are… Continue reading Walking Down Poetry Lane
*** When I was younger, I shared a room with an older sister who must have had at least two shelves full of books. I was jealous, since I had only a small stack of books which I lined up on my desk. My goal was to have as many books as her one day.… Continue reading Precious books and a glorious afternoon
