Confronting the Classics

Confronting the Classics
Mary Beard
Audible // Amazon // Goodreads

I bought this book on the recommendation of Jean/BookishThoughts. I love her reviews so I thought I’d take the leap and try one of the nonfiction books she recommends about Classics.

So far I’ve only read the Introduction. It took me about a week to actually get through. It’s very dense and the writing is definitely academic. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it. I’m definitely going to push through the next chapters and challenge my normal, casual reading style.

I’ll let you know how it goes!

Where I am in 2016

It seems like every time I turn around life has already changed and I’m running head first into a new adventure with little plan for once I get there. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Earlier I was thinking about it, I’m always relaunching something be it my YouTube or my writing career or this blog. I’ve come to and gone away from blogging so many times in my life. Each time I’ve been in different places, often physically in a different place but even more so in mentally and emotionally different places. It only seems appropriate to jump back in to blogging with sharing where I am now, in April of 2016.

Physically I’m currently in Orlando, Florida. I live with three roommates near Walt Disney World and have the privilege of working there five days a week as part of the Disney College Program. My husband is back home in Shreveport, Louisiana. We’ve been married for one interesting, difficult, wonderful, bizarre year.

Emotionally and mentally, I don’t think I’ve ever been in a better place. In the past several months I’ve cut ties with toxic people, rekindled relationships with those I’d grown apart from, and made some wonderful friends. I’ve obviously gotten married, moved 14 hours away, and started working at a job I love. My anxiety is present but I’m handling it and doing more living than I’ve ever done before.

This year my goal is to write things I want to write, get to know my wonderful new home (Disney & the Orlando area), and get to know myself a little more every day.

2016 is shaping up to be an interesting year.
