Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
I've enjoyed checking in with everyone over the last couple of weeks, and it's been wonderful to read a few books for pleasure, even if I was unimpressed with some of those novels. But the summer session is starting up, and this will be a very busy semester for me, as it's my capstone course and things are crazier than ever with my job. I'm so close to completing my degree that it seems real to me for the first time. So I will be mostly absent until the end of August. I hope to see you all then!
