Poetry Corner is here again, and I have a lovely one to share today! Today's poem is written by Grace Noll Crowell, someone I had not heard of until writing my January blog post, and this is my third poem to share by her since then. I'm loving her style! If you can't tell from the… Continue reading Poetry Corner: The God-Given Library
Some of my blog posts are planned out--for example, the one I wrote at the end of the year about my favorite reads from 2017. Others are more spontaneous, born from my thoughts during the day. This post is of the latter type, and four different occurrences have brought it about. First-- I moved to… Continue reading Creativity in Fiction and Life
It's funny what you might find hidden on the shelf at the library. During the first few weeks at my new job, while perusing the literature section, I spotted an old poetry book, which probably hadn't been checked out for a long while. After glimpsing through a few of the poems, I found that I… Continue reading Poetry Corner: To the Passing of the Year
Aaaaand...I'm back--after a crazy couple of weeks. Two weeks ago, I moved into a new apartment in a new town, and I'm still trying to get all my things situated. One reason the unpacking process has taken so long is because I darted away to North Carolina shortly after moving in, and I stayed there… Continue reading Travelling, New Sights, and a Hobbit Heart
This week, I'm going a new direction on my blog by offering some *hopefully* useful interview tips. Why this topic, and why now? Well, I got a job, and I went through a lot of interview preparation to get it. So, since I'll probably be leaving the world of interviews behind for a while, I… Continue reading Five Interview Tips You Won’t Find Everywhere
See the stack of books pictured below? That's my current to-read list. What's more, most of them are library books and due within the next month. What's more, I'll be moving and starting a new job within the next month and a half, even though I'm buried in books. As you see, I have a… Continue reading A Bookworm’s Dilemma
With Banned Books Week coming up at the end of September, I wanted to unearth a blog I wrote a couple years ago about how the library can celebrate. Find my old post by clicking here! In this post, I share a few ideas of how libraries can decorate for Banned Books Week and bring… Continue reading Banned Books Week Approaching
One of my weird side obsessions is taking personality quizzes. If I see one that looks slightly fun and interesting on Pinterest or other social media, I’m all over it. I’m sure that my family and friends are tired of getting all the quizzes I send them. At least, they’re not as enthusiastic as I… Continue reading My Obsession with Book (and Personality) Quizzes
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!
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!
