One of my favorite texts I could possibly receive goes something like this: Are you free this weekend for a road trip?
So you can imagine my delight when that very message popped up on my phone from some dear friends on mine from high school. Since all three of us live in different states and have very different work schedules, it’s pretty rare that we all have a free weekend at the same time (in this case it was MLK day on the Monday) so this was not to be missed.

Due to college overseas, I had never been home for a snow in North Carolina since my family moved here in 2014, but that all changed a couple weeks ago!
This time I was home and got to properly enjoy over ten inches of snow! Continue reading
It’s approaching y’all. The Christmas season is almost here! Sheesh it goes by quick. I know some of y’all might cover your ears and talk about how “it’s not even Thanksgiving yet,” and that’s okay I’ll repost the links to this post on December 1st for ya. Continue reading
I finally got around to visiting Oxford for the day! This was huge for me because I had heard Oxford is a great city to visit and explore if you are a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien or C.S. Lewis (raises hand super high rather energetically). I went to several different spots that I had heard mentioned beforehand, as well as a few new places that didn’t hold any particular literary significance to me, but were interesting and fun all the same.
1. The Eagle and Child Pub
After a rather crazy week I decided that Friday would be the perfect day to just take a break from busyness and do nothing for an entire day. So here is a little list of my favorite five necessities for a successful day of nothing 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
I came home from England to the US for Christmas yesterday! *happy dance* I haven’t been home since the first week of September and I must say it has been a very long three and a half months. Continue reading
Howdy! I haven’t been on the blog in a few weeks, sorry about that. Normally I try to have a post every other week, but the end of term is rapidly approaching and with it is Continue reading
This weekend I went to London with these wonderful girls, Ros and Viki, and some friends of ours from church. Having previously visited most of the touristy places I had wanted to go on our last London trip in June of 2015, we focused on spending more time in certain places instead of traveling to as many as possible. I only had one location request. The one place I hadn’t visited last summer when we went was Blackfriar’s Bridge and all I needed was one picture. (After reading The Infernal Devices it was a major bucket list destination. I didn’t need to stay super long but I had to go see Jem’s favorite place in London and get a picture.) So naturally we ran across four lanes of traffic to get it, and then ran right back to jump in the car again. Continue reading
So I might have a slight notebook addiction. I guess this could be assumed since I’m doing a Creative Writing degree, but I’m in my second year and I still haven’t taken my laptop to a lecture or seminar once. I always handwrite everything in a notebook first. I just really like the motion of writing everything by hand. Clicking away on a keyboard is fun and all but doesn’t compare to thick ink on fresh paper. Continue reading
