So it’s been a HOT MINUTE since I’ve posted anything (sorry!) and even longer since I’ve done any kind of a tag. So I’m bringin back one of my faves: Library Loot Wednesday! The basic premise is, post up what you’ve got currently checked out (even ebooks and eaudio!), and see where you are next week! (This mostly started as a way to hold myself accountable when I had like, thirty books out at a time.)
I went to school originally to be a filmmaker. I had so many ideas that I wanted to see on a screen and not just in my head. But, real life, relationship issues, and an unsupportive advisor lead to me giving up my dream of being a badass indie chick making the festival circuit.
Hi, hello, I promise I am indeed still here! Continue reading “Whoops…”
This might end up being a monthly thing for me now! (At least till I can get my timing for stuff figured out!)
Yes, I know it’s a bit late in the game for me to say what my goals are, but hey, I at least have them!
So. It’s been a minute since I’ve written up just an update type post. But why not go ahead and do it now at the end of the year!
Growing up, I was always the kid who finished reading first. I was a speed reader, and could tell you exactly where on a page a phrase would be. And as I’ve gotten older (I feel ancient, I swear), my attention span has all but disappeared.
Enter: reading challenges!
“National Poetry Month each April is the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of readers, students, K-12 teachers, librarians, booksellers, literary events curators, publishers, bloggers, and, of course, poets marking poetry’s important place in our culture and our lives.
While we celebrate poets and poetry year-round, the Academy of American Poets was inspired by the successful celebrations of Black History Month (February) and Women’s History Month (March), and founded National Poetry Month in April 1996 with an aim to:
- highlight the extraordinary legacy and ongoing achievement of American poets,
- encourage the reading of poems,
- assist teachers in bringing poetry into their classrooms,
- increase the attention paid to poetry by national and local media,
- encourage increased publication and distribution of poetry books, and
- encourage support for poets and poetry.”
Which is all well and good! I’m here for it. But…honestly? I hate poetry.
