Reading & Writing Living In A Library

Living In A Library

If you could spend the rest of your free time in one place, where would it be? For me, it would be a library. Libraries are the places where I feel honestly at peace. The larger the library, the better. There is no better place to be than where the whispers of human knowledge are …

People Do Not Understand How Much I Despise Religion

I disagreed with my boyfriend the other night. It wasn’t significant, but it was important. It will likely turn into something more serious when we reach the actual moment of decision. We were at a party on New Year’s Eve, and he commented (I forget the context) on our future children being baptised. I was …

Happy New Year – My Plan for 2018

In the closing days of 2016, I made a naive assumption that 2017 would be the best year of my life. Have you ever done a similar thing? Naturally, I was wrong. 2017 would be a mixed bag for most of the year until I reached November 2017. That is when the year took a …
