This Year’s Reading Goals:

So I definitely didn’t get to do much reading last year since I was so busy working all the time. Like I do every year, I set myself a goal of reading 50 books and last year I didn’t even come close, I barely made it halfway. This year I will have a newborn baby occupying my time, but I won’t be working anymore, so maybe I’ll have a lot more time to read! Here are some of my lists so far, if anyone has any good suggestions, let me know!

Some books I want to reread this year:
-Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass (Lewis Carroll)
-Sookie Stackhouse Series (and all offshoots that go with it) (Charlaine Harris)
-The Hunger Games series (Suzanne Collins)
-The Chronicles of Narnia series (C.S. Lewis)

Series(es?) I started and never finished and want to this year:
-The Dark Tower Series (Stephen King)
-The Lord of the Rings Series (J.R.R. Tolkien)
-The Game of Thrones Series (George R.R. Martin)
-The Books of Ember Series (Jeanne DuPrau)

Other books on my To Read list for this year:
-Saint (Ted Dekker) (which I’m working on right now!)
- Under the Dome (Stephen King)
-Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children (Ransom Riggs)
-World War Z (Max Brooks)
-Slaughterhouse-Five (Kurt Vonnegut)
-John Dies at the End (David Wong)

I think that’s probably about 50 books right there, so if I read all those, I guess I’ll be pretty close to my goal for the year anyway!

This basically sums up one of the biggest problems with the United States’ schooling system


This post has been featured on a 1000Notes.com blog!

This is something I have felt so strongly about ever since I was a young kid in school!
This is why I want to send my kids to one of those schools that doesn’t focus so much on standardized testing and instead focuses on interpersonal skills and hands-on experience and learning through doing and just more real-life applications of things in general. They are kind of considered “radical” or whatever right now, but hopefully in a few years when my first kid starts school (well, like four years I guess since she’s not quite around yet…) they’ll be considered more normal. My biggest annoyance with our school system is that they go off of a child’s age, not their skill level, which doesn’t make any sense at all. I understand it’s important for kids to be around peers their own age and all, but kids learn at different levels and in different ways and to force kids to be at the same level with every other kid in their class just because they were born within a few months of each other is just stupid. Some kids get pushed too hard and end up falling behind because they can’t keep up so they just give up and then some kids are bored and stop trying because they aren’t being challenged anymore and learning isn’t fun in either of those situations.
I just really hope that someday there will be a major overhaul in our system to try and fix our educational system because it’s not really what I would call “broken” but it could definitely use some serious repairs…

I wasted a few minutes trying to remember what episode of Doctor Who this related to and then realized it was about Titanic…

I wasted a few minutes trying to figure out why Rose and Jack would be in the Titanic episode when that’s season 4.

I tried to click the reblog button in the picture.



Whovians are a mess.

I can’t stop fucking laughing

I’m fucked up because I thought about Doctor Who too, and I don’t even watch the show. Tumblr what have you done to me…. 


Thanks tumblr and Doctor Who, I definitely wanted that scene to make me MORE SAD than it already did!

The perfect way to CAPTCHA how grammar nerds feel about this. After searching I could not find the original artist to credit their work. If you made it, please let me know so I can give credit where it is due. 

This test should also be required before being allowed to make smaller versions of yourself…

Any Interest?

I’m thinking about starting up an art/craft/hobby blog sometime soon because I won’t be working full time (or maybe at all) for too much longer now that I’m almost five months pregnant and I’m afraid I’ll get bored with nothing to do. Maybe trying to maintain a blog regularly about the crafty stuff I work on will both give me something to occupy me and also keep.me motivated to finish the projects i start… Basically I’m just trying to find out, though, if anyone would really even be interested in it? I know there’s lots of art blogs out there, would it be worth it to put another one out there or would people just ignore it?  I put things on here occasionally but don’t really care if anyone ever even looks at it, but if I posted my art, I would hope for feedback and stuff. So yeah, anyone’s ideas or comments about this would be welcome!

merindab asked: psst, you might be able to order my book at Hastings now, I noticed the paperback is on barnes and nobles website, I haven't tried to order it in a store yet. And I still need to see about a signing.

You should TOTALLY do a signing!! I finished the book a couple weeks ago and haven’t seen you at the store lately to tell you. It was AMAZING! And if you don’t do a signing, I would still love love love it if you would sign my copy, so someday when you’re super famous I can brag about having a signed first printing!!!
