So here I am. One day after turning in my dissertation, my final project for university, and it’s been relaxing. I’ve done all the things I’ve wished I could do back when I had to be studying and writing, and it’s been just one day and I’m already sick of it. Continue reading
Y’all I have a thing for books. For Christmas all I wanted was books even though I’m running out of room on my shelves for them all, because there’s so many out there that sound amazing and I want to read them! Continue reading
It happens occasionally doesn’t it? The past creeps up on you and the enemy uses it to remind us of how ashamed we should feel and how condemned and unworthy we are. Let me just say two things.

Hi there, it’s Madeleine.
I had a bit of an interesting morning yesterday, and just figured I’d write out what happened and my mini revelation here.
