Years ago, before the boy who recommended my favorite books married someone else, he told me to read this one over Christmas break. The main character was everything I view myself to be. And there are women of power, grace and pain. A beautiful scene where someone learns to love a child. 

And tonight I watched the movie and I cried three times. It wouldn't have been as good without the book, but it was beautiful and moving and I wanted to text the boy. The one i always counted on my back burner. But I couldn't. And I didn't. And I thought. 

Well isn't that the point? 
Learning to love someone else when you realize the one before wasn't enough?

Choosing a Book

Which do I read first? The one that will keep me up tonight or the one that will make me laugh?

Get Yourself a Friend Like Kyle

I was having some technical difficulties, so obviously the next question was how am I supposed to get married? Because melodrama!

Wouldn't be a birthday ride without this lady and her muddy muddy paws.

When you give your phone number to someone on mutual and see the dreaded green arrow. Texting android users is the worst. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHEN YOU ARE RESPONDING?!

Literary train of thought

How Democracies Die lead to The Plot Against America which lead to Brave New World which lead to The Feminine Mystique which lead to The Handmaid's Tale which lead to my current book The Bell Jar. Read by Maggie Gyllenhaal. Maggie Gyllenhaal!

Were you aware that the protagonist in The Bell Jar is five ten?
