September Wrap Up Part 2

Tendonitis be damned I managed to get some reading done in the last half of the month. Let me tell you, it's not easy holding open a book when moving your thumb at all causes shooting pain. Books I've read that I'll be posting full Thoughts/Post on: Upright Women Wanted by Sarah GaileyI will cover... Continue Reading →

Thoughts : Buddhism: An Introduction to the Buddha’s Life, Teaches and Practices by Joan Duncan Oliver

I knew next to nothing about Buddhism. Pretty much the base level of pop-culture references plus a few fly-away facts I'd picked up while studying Japanese in college.

November & December Haul

   I managed to unhaul two bags worth of books in my recent ‘catalog my books’ project. I’ve stopped buying books new unless I’ve tried it (library checkouts, samples online) previously. The used books though, that’s where I hit a hole. These are usually things I’ve heard about or sound interesting or I’ve already read.... Continue Reading →

Weekend Reading 11-24

     I never know if I should love a Holiday week or hate it. For starters, it's a holiday week so hooray for time off! But I always have a slump in mental health over the holidays. I need a lot of structure to keep me feeling productive in my day to day and... Continue Reading →
