New to the List: Maus, Parts I and II by Art Spiegelman (A novel set during wartime) Ok, so I know that Maus is technically not a ‘novel’ (rather a graphic novel, but I say it counts). It is broken into two parts and it is probably one of the most heartbreaking things I have […]Read more "2017 Reading Challenge: January"
I meant to get this out before the end of January, but better late than never. The first month of this New Year seemed to fly by, and pass painfully slowly all at once. The last ten days of January have seemed a little surreal, and it is still hard to believe all that has […]Read more "Personal Goals Updates: January"
Hello, 2017 2016 was a crazy year (and I am sure that 2017 will be just as crazy), but if I have one hope for this New Year I hope that it is a more productive year.

R. Martin; got a little more serious about photography; graduated from grad school), I feel I didn’t really accomplish much […]Read more "‘Tis the Season…and other General Announcements"
It seems like it was only a few weeks ago that I was celebrating the first moments of 2015 surrounded by fellow volunteers and many friendly Haitians in a small club in the mountains of La Vallée. Where did the last fifty-one weeks go? So much has happened in those weeks that seemed to disappear […]Read more "Goodbye 2015"
Ok, it had been a while since I have posted an update on my 2015 Reading Challenge progress, but in my defense I just started my last term of Grad school (only 45 days to go)! But I managed to read about three book in the mean time 🙂 New to the List: Someone by […]Read more "2015 Reading Challenge: Update"
It has been a while since I have posted anything that wasn’t related to my progress on completing the 2015 Reading Challenge. Of late, I haven’t devoted much time to photography, blogging, travel, adventure…really anything outside of the academic world. But my second to last term is finally coming to an end and now I […]Read more "For the Love of All Things Nerdy, New Pictures, and General Life Updates"
