The books that made me a reader

How did I go from owning only a handful a of books to owning over 350? Even better, how did I manage to actually have read the vast majority of those books? I think every reader has that one book, or that one series that made them reader. As far as I can remember, I have always liked to read. Reading has been encouraged to me from a very young age, and especially when I was a kid I was usually reading something. A funny story, the Harry Potter series was not yet completed when I was young, and everyone…

Decluttering 101

I’ll admit it.. I am a horribly messy person. Especially when I am busy, my entire room just seems to become such a cluttered mess.

It’s finals szn! How to ace that final paper

Finals season is upon us again and that means that a lot of us will be spending most these days studying hard and working on those last few papers. Love it or hate it, writing is something that we all have to do in college. I personally love writing papers as long as I can write about a topic I am passionate about. My creative writing is… subpar. However, my academic writing is usually fairly strong. Some of you might not know it, but I am a huge government nerd, and I love writing about the intricacies of international relations,…
