write or die.


one of my goals for this year is to complete a novel i've been working on for several years. + when i say "working on" what i really mean is thinking about + wishing for. i have neglected my writing + creativity for far too long. i just discovered write or die this weekend which has really been a fun tool to shake the cobwebs out of my head + get me started again. i'm going to write for at least 30 minutes a day + see what happens...

current heart throbs.

i have been reading these books.
i read twilight this summer + was not impressed but my students love the series, so i decided to create a book club at my school focusing on it. consequently, i have nearly finished all the books. i'm halfway through the last one. i find them shallow + definitely meant for teens but i'm enthralled by the story. it is quite dreamy, for the most part, if you overlook the annoying stuff. i wouldn't mind a (good) day in the life of bella swan, flying through the trees with a handsome vampire who had the power to keep me beautiful + alive forever.

also, this song has been on my mind lately. i really love perry's pig tails!
