I didn’t know what I was getting myself in to when I ordered The Ocean at the end of the lane, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved it. I’ve been told by friends/family for years now to read Neil Gaiman’s books, but never really found the time, nor want, to do it. I was a fool, and you are too if you haven’t read The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Continue reading “Book Review:The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman”
Not much has happened in the past week, besides the fact that I was sick all last weekend– aka why there is no normal blog post this week. I have a couple ideas cooking, but found myself unable to really sit down and write down my thoughts. So, instead of writing, I spent my time on (you guessed it) Pinterest.
Pinterest has everything. I somehow never grow bored, and while most of the recipes aren’t great, or the DIY’s are failures, the website itself is addicting. So, that’s why I’ve started pinning some of my blog posts to Pinterest. So, if you’d like to follow me there you can do so here, and if you just want to see my blog posts, you can follow this board only.
Next week (probably Monday) there will be a new post!

A land of both ice and fire, Antarctica is known to harbor one of the harshest environments on Earth. It is the only continent to have zero permanent residents, as well as a treaty between over 53 countries. A treaty enacted to preserve the integrity and history of this lonely island. As stated by Jon Krakauer, “Antarctica has this mythic weight. It resides in the collective unconscious of so many people, and it makes this huge impact, just like outer space. It’s like going to the moon.” Continue reading “The Secrets of Antarctica (Part One)”
