Introducing The Reading List

I have decided to create a Classic Reading List. The first book on the list is The Count of Monte Cristo.

Each book was chosen because I have had difficulty reading it in the past. This one I struggled with because it makes me sad. I liked Edmond too much to read about his misfortune. 

But it means something to my mother, and I’ve always wanted to read it. 

Let’s make this a read along. If you would like, I will post a review of my thoughts on the first ten chapters by Wednesday. Feel free to reply with your own thoughts, and we’ll keep each other motivated.


A Random Thought

It’s much harder to strike out on your own. I’ve been writing fanfiction here and there for about two years. I get more recognition for the sparse stories I wrote about other people’s characters than what I’ve come up with on my own.

I don’t really care about likes, I just want someone to give me constructive criticism. That’s why I’m sharing my stories after all. I want to grow as a writer.

But I guess if forging your own path was easy, it wouldn’t be so exciting.


Well I feel much better today. I don’t know why. I’ve got some tea here, maybe that’s helping my mood?

I guess it all boils down to my feeling like a failure. I don’t know why today is different, though. I haven’t really accomplished anything since yesterday.

The cat demands my attention. Good bye.

The Novel

So I’m working on a novel, it’s getting put up online as I write it. It’s a lesbian high school romance. I’m not very good at writing, but hopefully it makes some one smile. 

One of my short stories got a reaction. That kind of made my day. I got into the chiropractor’s. Then I crashed. I still don’t want to get out of bed.

Insomnia Returns

So, it is currently 3:14 a.m. here in the middle of nowhere, Kansas, and I cannot sleep. I’ve been writing since midnight, I think, and I just cannot stop. So, I got a wordpress. This should be fun.

I’ve been meaning to get one to start documenting my upcoming adventures. I’ll be graduating high school in a few months, and everything is about to change. It should be a fun little experiment to document everything as it happens.

Upcoming Adventures Include:



Emily’s Wedding (I’m the maid of honor!)

Moving to Germany with Emily to get a free university education

So, nothing major, right. Ugh. I’m really pumped, but super terrified. I’ve been practicing my German, but I’m having trouble making the words stick. I can say “I like/love you” and potatoes and that is sadly about all I’ve managed to grasp. I figure I’ll take a year off to get familiar with the language before I jump right into school. But that’s something to worry about later. Emily’s wedding is a first priority. I’ve already got my dress, but it’s a little tight. I’m trying to lose ten pounds. It is surprisingly easy, actually. I just cut out the Dr. Pepper and I’m dropping weight like crazy.

Well, this little late night ramble is coming to an end. I will be back soon to update you on my soon-to-be adventures.
