Gratefulness: Public Libraries

ME: How many books have you read this year? LIAM: (checks reading log) 138, but I haven’t logged a few. Growing up, the local library, A.V. Sorensen, was where my friends and I would play basketball. It’s not where I went to read/check out books, or do homework. There was often reading associated with homework, so I didn’t fill my spare time with reading... Continue reading

Apparently, I Hate Paul Harvey and Farmers. I Blame Politicians.

Brand … Continue reading Apparently, I Hate Paul Harvey and Farmers. I Blame Politicians.

The Constant {LOST Recap Flashback}

When the show LOST was on the air, I was a fan of the show. During the last season, I would write recaps on each episode. I would pour my own thoughts into the tiniest details presented during the show. It was a lot of fun to write them. Since the show ended, I've kicked … Continue reading The Constant {LOST Recap Flashback}
