Read: Persepolis (#1)

“Persepolis” made the list, because it was a book that a friend of mine had to read in college. I had never heard of it before, but it sounded like it was an interesting book. The friend who read it, wasn’t really into reading, but she said it was a really good book and she enjoyed it. I held on to this for quite some time, and I don’t remember how I was reminded of it, but it was brought to my attention at one point, and I decided to add it to my list. I have to say, that … Continue reading Read: Persepolis (#1)

You Are What You…

We’ve all heard the phrase, “You are what you eat.” Clearly eating doesn’t truly define us. I can eat a healthy salad one day, and a greasy burger the next. It doesn’t mean I’m confused, or uncertain, or bipolar. In today’s world, more weight (no pun intended) is put on what we eat. We want to eat healthier, we want to eat smarter, we also want to eat cheaper. Everyone is stuck on this health craze. And that’s all fine and dandy. Go and eat your apples and gluten free carbs. But I think there is more to this sentence. … Continue reading You Are What You…

The Collector (#28)

One of the books to read on my list is The Collector by John Fowles. Rumor has it -and by rumor I mean actual history– that there were men who murdered women based off of this book. So, when I heard this, I became intrigued. Another friend of mine read it, and felt that he really understood the reasoning behind it. It’s been on my list for a while, but I never really got around to it. Well, this year, it made it to the list! It was a quick read, I want to say it only took about 3 … Continue reading The Collector (#28)

What Everyone Wants to Know

I’m reading a book that is on my birthday list, and as I’m about half way through it, I think, “I wonder how this ends.” And then I began to think, that’s the one thing everyone wants to know. “How does the book end?” “How does the movie end?” It’s the most criticized part of everything. “I hate how it ended.” “The ending sort of left you hanging.” No one really wants to know how things all began, they want to know how it ends. You would think people would be interested in the beginning. Do you want to know … Continue reading What Everyone Wants to Know

Preacher: Gone to Texas (#19)

The first graphic novel I’ve decided to read is: Preacher: Gone to Texas. I was first introduced to this while in college. It was part of my senior seminar. I was only required to read volume one, and it really stuck with me. For starters, I’ve never read a graphic novel, and second, it was a very interesting topic. There are 66 volumes, along with a few ‘specials’ regarding the characters mentioned in the story. It was really fun to read. I was surprised actually. I’m not really used to looking at pictures, and having a story told in that … Continue reading Preacher: Gone to Texas (#19)

28 Before 28

Here it is! The BIG REVEAL for this year! There was a lot of thought put in to this; I wanted this year to mean something to me.

Read: One for the Money 7. … Continue reading 28 Before 28

27 Before 27: Recap

It has been an incredible year, not only because of my list, but also because of the external events that have taken place. I will admit, I didn’t complete it. And I’m kind of sad, because this is the second time I’ve done it. The first time, I didn’t complete everything and now, I’ve done the same. But, I have a new list coming – which I will get to – and I hope I can be better with this coming year. Okay, let’s start: 1. Night at the drive-in – completed – see post 2. 31 Days of Vegetarian … Continue reading 27 Before 27: Recap

Read a Biography (#11)

As part of my list (that seems to be taking forever to complete haha) was to read a biography. The reason this made the list was simple: I’ve never done it before. I’ve always been weary of them because I never thought they would be interesting. I mean, MY life isn’t all that interesting, why would someone else’s be? Turn’s out… they actually are! I chose to read Dick Van Dyke’s My Lucky Life In and Out of Show Business. I must say, I definitely want to go back and re-watch all the episodes from The Dick Van Dyke Show … Continue reading Read a Biography (#11)

Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk (#23)

As part of my list, I wanted to read Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris. I have read a few other books by Mr. Sedaris including, Me Talk Pretty One Day and When You Are Engulfed in Flames. Both were really great and laugh out loud funny. I definitely want to eventually read his others as well. This one consisted of stories about animals and their interactions with other animals. There’s a reason why we have a food chain and this is pretty much proof of why that is. If you were to put two animals together of a different species, there’s going to be … Continue reading Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk (#23)

Rosetta Stone

Decoding and understanding people and even yourself is one of the most confusing things on this planet. For example, I hate having 22 passwords to remember. Furthermore, I hate having to remember that some of them require capital letters, one symbol, one lower case letter, and one number. When I make all my passwords the same to remember them, I hear the same warning, “Then someone can break into all of your things!” Well, if they can break into my things, then can they tell me what the password is because I thought it was what I originally had but … Continue reading Rosetta Stone
