My Summer Reading List

A few books that peaked my interest

My Summer Reading List

I've always been an avid reader and this summer is no different. With everything happening in our country right now I think it's even more important to add some relevant reads to my list this year.

1. A Unified Theory of Happiness by Andrea F. Polard, PsyD

2. How To Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi

3. Five Days by Wes Moore with Erica L. Green

4. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

5. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

6. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

7. It's Kind Of A Funny Story by Ned Vizzini

8. Falling Toward the Moon by r.h. Sin and Robert M. Drake

9. We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach

10. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

11. Loving Vs. Virginia: A Documentary Novel of the Landmark Civil Rights Case by Patricia Hruby Powell

This summer I hope to be able to read most if not all of these books along with a few others that I find along the way because while I think it's important to read for pleasure, I also think that we as a society need to make sure we are educated on sensitive subjects such as mental health, abuse, sexuality, and racial tensions. If I could recommend anything for a person it would to be find books and movies about each of these subjects or written by someone who has some authority on the issue to better educate yourself on a subject you may not know well.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
