Since I got promoted back in May, I’ve had the luxury of taking an hour lunch every day at work, which I didn’t really like at first because it just means it’s thirty more minutes that I have to be “at work” rather than at home or somewhere else. It’s nice because it means I … Continue reading

The Book Loft in Columbus, Ohio

The Book Loft in Columbus, Ohio

So, I’ve been having a passionate love affair with books ever since I bought my first Goosebumps at the school book fair in second grade.

It’s a convenient way to upkeep my Facebook friends but I hope no one has ever noticed … Continue reading

harry potter and the end of my childhood

But I’m not ashamed, because what Harry Potter has meant to me is something completely unique and awesome, something that could never be ruined for me by someone … Continue reading
