Related to that Buzzfeed “article” about things that are never quite the same after college

The last time I was in my college’s library, we sat in one of the second floor alcoves. He was working on his student teaching final portfolio and I was writing my last paper for that accursed Brontës seminar. I had no interest in that seminar. But it was a reading seminar rather than aContinue reading “Related to that Buzzfeed “article” about things that are never quite the same after college”

An origin story of sorts

“How did you find LHU?” I’ve been asked and have tried to answer that question quite a few times. LHU went on my radar because of a simultaneous BA-paralegal certification program. There were only so many programs that offered that in the country, and fewer that I would be remotely interested in. It wasn’t untilContinue reading “An origin story of sorts”

Vividly I recall my sophomore American Lit. class being forced to read The Crucible aloud over the the course of weeks.

Liam and Lucy (Yes, those are their real names) furthered my world view just from the stories they told me about their home life. That sensation, paired with my recent binge on graphic novels and gearing up for Script Frenzy, inspired me to readContinue reading “Persepolis”

This better be the only rotten apple in my book crop. My method for selecting books had failed until this. Amazon likes to suggest books for me, based on other books I have viewed. In turn, I will read a summary of them, check if they are available in a library within my county, andContinue reading “Anything But Ordinary”

Ghost World

Let the summer begin! Maybe this was instilled in me from the summer reading program at my childhood library, but no matter the reason, I read with a goal in mind during the summer. I reached 25 books last summer, and this summer’s mission is 40 books. Good pacing for now… Yes, like most movies,Continue reading “Ghost World”
