2017 Reading Challenge

Do you have what it takes?

2017 Reading Challenge

2017 has officially begun and that means a fresh start (and goal-setting). If you are an avid reader, you probably know about Goodreads Reading Challenge, where account holders can set a goal of books they hope to complete by the end of the year. I read 14 books in 2016, beating my goal by two! Well, this year, add another level to your challenge by picking books that match the following prompts below! So, I’m calling all bookworms, English majors, Goodreads account holders, and folks who want to start reading, but never had the motivation-let’s do this!

1. More than 500 pages

2. A book that became a movie

3. Published this year

4. Has a number in the title

5. A recommendation form a friend

6. True story

7. Pulitzer Prize winner

8. Nonfiction

9. Only based on the cover

10. A memoir

11. A book you can finish in a day

12. A book set someplace you want to visit

13. A book that you own, but haven’t read

14. A play

15. A banned book

16. A book you started, but never finished

17. A book written by your favorite author

18. A book written by an author you have never read

19. A trilogy

20. A book from a nonhuman perspective

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents.

That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
