September and Such

September! What a month, school's started and fall is supposed to be coming. (It hasn't. It wasn't even cold the day I took this picture with my hot latte and sweater. I just like to walk around pretending the leaves are changing colors and the weather is below 70. You feel?) Not much has occurred in... Continue Reading →

I had never seen anything like the fine gold and deep blue of the theater's ceiling. The theater had been built in the jazz age, it was evident in the geometrical patterns of ivory, gold, and bronze lining the ornate walls and roof.

Each shout and... Continue Reading →

Review: 1984 by George Orwell

I've been putting off this review for about a month now. My thoughts upon finishing it were rather scattered and my emotions disturbed, so I needed some time to sort my thoughts and feelings regarding 1984. 1984 is downright disturbing. As I told my mom, I felt like I needed to take a shower after reading it... Continue Reading →
