This week’s topic is Books I’d Recommend To Someone Who Doesn’t Read X. X can be any category you pick so I am choosing Comics/Graphic Novels. The terms comics and graphic novels have sort of become interchangeable over the years, even though technically I think they’re a bit different. Comics generally come out in serialized form (like once a month, once very two months, etc.) whereas graphic novels are created to… Read more »

Hello 2012: Goals for the New Year

Hello 2012: Goals for the New Year

Happy New Year, friends!  I am not a big celebrator of New Years. I don’t like big crowds so I hate going out NYE but I do like fireworks and the possibilities that each new year brings. 2011 wasn’t a great year for me but I’m putting it behind me and am looking forward to bigger and better things for 2012. I don’t really believe in resolutions but I do believe in goals. They may seem like the same thing but to me, a goal is something that I can strive for and hopefully achieve, whereas I feel like I… Read more »
