2017 Resolutions: How did I do?

Last January I made this list of my top ten bookish resolutions for 2017... and now the time has come to see how I did! I've completely forgotten what my resolutions were, so this should be an interesting trip down memory lane. 1. Read 24 books. Done! Somehow the stars aligned this year and I actually… Continue reading 2017 Resolutions: How did I do?

December is... done?! Where did this month (and YEAR) go?!?! Decembers always tend to be whirlwinds of celebrations, seeing friends and family, and frantically trying to wrap everything up before the new year comes around once again. In case you're curious, here's what I was up to in December: In December I read a total… Continue reading DECEMBER 2017 | Wrap-Up

Looking Back on 2017

For the past few years I've made one of these posts reflecting on the concluding year. After reading what I wrote at the end of 2015 and 2016, it hit me just how much has happened in 2017. I got accepted to study abroad for an academic year at Oxford University. My friends and I… Continue reading Looking Back on 2017

NOVEMBER 2017 | Wrap-Up

Happy December!! We are now in the middle of my two favorite months of the year: chilly November and festive December (though my November was also incredibly festive!).

SEPTEMBER 2017 | Wrap-Up

September was a blur. I nearly had to do a double take when I looked at a calendar the other day and realized that it was nearly October. Between preparing for Oxford, moving to Oxford, and living at Oxford, it feels as though this entire month has been one transition right after another. It's a relief to… Continue reading SEPTEMBER 2017 | Wrap-Up

AUGUST 2017 | Wrap-Up

August has always been one of my favorite months of the year. I love the feeling of transition that it brings, mostly because for the majority of my life it has meant starting an exciting new year of school. This year my academics are starting a little later (I'm coming, Oxford!) but August nevertheless brought… Continue reading AUGUST 2017 | Wrap-Up

JULY 2017 | Wrap-Up

July was a blur of hot days, air-conditioned office spaces, lakeside reading, and time spent with friends and family... not a bad way to spend the bulk of summer! Here's what I was up to this past month: In July I read a total of 9 books: Hard Times by Charles Dickens North and South by Elizabeth… Continue reading JULY 2017 | Wrap-Up
