Motivational Monday – Read To Know More

You’ve probably heard this a lot, which is why I won’t delve into it. The reminder wouldn’t hurt though… A book will teach you a lot and also take you to places you’ve never been.

A Quote a Day: Live Through Another’s Experience

First and foremost, MY APOLOGIES FOR THE SILENCE! (Okay, the caps was rude, but I really meant it for emphasis.) It has been too long! I had a creative block and just like most people tend to do I was getting comfortable with it! But here I am, once again. So, on with today’s quote……

A Quote a Day: Challenge accepted!

“You should never read just for “enjoyment.” Read to make yourself smarter! Less judgmental. More apt to understand your friends’ insane behavior, or better yet, your own. Pick “hard books.” Ones you have to concentrate on while reading. And for god’s sake, don’t let me ever hear you say, “I can’t read fiction. I only…

Mirror Mirror: The Stranger Within

Have you ever been in a bad place? Have you ever been on the verge of loosing your mind, feeling an urgent need to throw a huge fit? You feel like running, just running as fast as you can, to nowhere exactly. You want to run until you feel you’ve left it all behind you….

343 days left. Where do I see myself on day 211 of oh-so-wondrous year 2014. Well, by day 211 I would have turned 23 (Oh my! Did I just reveal my age? Or didn’t I? ***evil grin***). At 23, what would I have done? What would I have achieved? Well, this would be the first…

22 Days Later

Just like everyone else, I made a few resolutions. 22 days later, I’m wondering whether I’m keeping up with them. 5 things I need to…

My First Step

Wow! Time sure does fly! Forgive me for using the cliché. This would be my first post on this blog. The thing is that I started it some time in the middle of last year. All that time, and I never did a single thing with it. All because I was afraid. What of? You….

“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.” –Joyce Carol Oates When you read, you get to learn about the human: their feelings, thoughts, reasoning… Hell, you even learn about yourself!

Just a thought: What if we spoke like Shakespeare?

In sooth, I know not why I am so sad It wearies me; you say it wearies you; But how I caught it, found it, or came by it, What stuff ’tis made of, whereof it is born, I am to learn, And such a want-wit-sadness makes of me, That I have much ado to…

What I’m Reading: Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld

The Run-down: Prep is about the hopes, fears and experiences of a teenager in a prep school in Massachusetts and the world she longs to fit in. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
