Somehow, there's a debate on whether or not you should reread books you've already read. Honestly, until I started this blog, I had no idea that people didn't reread books. (Well, I knew my roommate didn't, but I figured that's just because she's weird. Kidding, you know I like you, Sarah.) I've got a shelf full of … Continue reading Five Reasons You Should Be Rereading Books
Y'all. I've never had great luck with giveaways before. (I once won a Twitter giveaway of The Other Normals, but I never finished the book. Oops. Should probably go back and try it.) This time around, I won a copy of Biketopia: Feminist Bicycle Science Fiction Stories in Extreme Futures. Look at that title. Look at that title. … Continue reading I Won Things!
I know it's really late on a Wednesday, and I realize I didn't do my normal recipe review today. It's been a really hectic day. I wanted to do a few updates, though.

Even though I was stuck in a small room with no windows most of the time (the "temporary" office for us "temporary" interns, you know), I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. For the first few weeks, I focused on … Continue reading Internship Update: It’s Over!
I decided to change a few things around for my #TheReadingQuest challenge. Mostly, I saw this book on the shelf at the library where Mom works and changed my "Book With a One-Word Title" to Illuminae instead of Magyk. I read it all in one day, so I guess I can go ahead and check that book off … Continue reading Book Review: “Illuminae” by Kaufman & Kristoff (#TheReadingQuest)
Today is my twenty-third birthday. I'm not too excited to be celebrating it, so be prepared for a long downer post. I went out shopping with my mother this morning. It's usually what we do on someone's birthday: go out on a bit of a birthday shopping spree. We didn't go to as many places … Continue reading Happy Birthday?
This August marks five years since I first moved into my freshman dorm, just over a year since I moved into my first apartment, and just under three months since I've settled into my second apartment. During the four years I spent in the dorms, I learned a lot about things I loved that I … Continue reading College Life: What You Won’t Find on Dorm Recommendation Lists
Original recipe from The Art of Comfort Baking. (There's a lot of dead images, but don't worry about it. The recipe is still readable.) This is a recipe I came across several years ago when I was on a "Mom, let's try a new recipe every week this summer!" kick. (Spoiler alert: that didn't happen. … Continue reading Recipe Review: Baked Penne with Chicken & Sun-Dried Tomatoes
