What I’ve Been Reading This Week

I subscribe to lots of things--probably too many--and as such whenever I go on vacation (or don't feel like reading things), I develop a huge backlog of reading. While I was cleaning this week, I'd take I-can't-stand-it-one-more-minute breaks that I told myself were productive because I was clearing out the back log of feminist newsletters, … Continue reading What I’ve Been Reading This Week

Throwing Things Out or My Journey with the Konmari Method

I live in a very small apartment. It's adorable and close to everything. About a hundred years ago, this building was a Basque boarding house. Every apartment is different and a little bit special. I've very much enjoyed living here except for one thing--we have too much stuff. To be fair, we are middle-class Americans. … Continue reading Throwing Things Out or My Journey with the Konmari Method

My Holiday Book Haul

I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful family. Even though the holidays were really hard this year because of my Papa's health, it was still wonderful to take the week with my fiance to see all my family and so many friends back in Portland. I miss them already. For Christmas, my family does … Continue reading My Holiday Book Haul

Ten Things You Can Throw Away Right Now

Life during NaNoWriMo is a little messy. The whole house slowly builds up to disaster levels, making it very difficult to get work done. When the mess gets to me, I wander around (looking for ways to procrastinate) and find ways to feel like I'm making a dent without spending tons of time cleaning. So … Continue reading Ten Things You Can Throw Away Right Now

Apple Spice Cupcakes with Honey Frosting for Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year, and celebrating the holiday is all about finding ways to invite sweetness and good things into the coming year. It's a wonderful part of fall, and it always reminds me that new beginnings don't happen only once a year. In my family it's always been a fairly low-maintenance … Continue reading Apple Spice Cupcakes with Honey Frosting for Rosh Hashanah

Boise Event: RAW Signature: March 24

I know the majority of my readers aren’t anywhere close to Boise, geographically, so I’ll keep this brief, but I thought I would see if anyone living close by might be interested.   I am participating in an art show put on by RAW, which supports artists in all types of mediums from performance art, … Continue reading Boise Event: RAW Signature: March 24

Happy New Year! 16 Things I Want to Accomplish in 2016

I hope everyone had a wonderful (but maybe not too crazy) night last night. Now that we've all rung in the New Year, it's time for some reflection on last year and the year ahead. In a way, I'm not sad to see the back of 2015. It's been an intense and fairly stressful year. … Continue reading Happy New Year! 16 Things I Want to Accomplish in 2016

My Christmas Tree Made of Books

My Nana sent me a picture of a Christmas tree formed entirely from the contents of someone's library. Naturally, I had to make one myself. I even have some advice for you if you want to make your own. I wasn't planning on having a Christmas tree. We usually celebrate the holiday with my parents, … Continue reading My Christmas Tree Made of Books

Thank you to BooksaRica for nominating me for this book tag! I think this one looks like a lot of fun, so we'll just hop to it. Books with Titles that Begin with Each of Your Initials I took all of these from my Goodreads TBR (which at 425 books is unnaturally long, I know) A   … Continue reading My Life in Books Tag
