I read the story “A Jury of Her Peers”, which is a great story that I really enjoyed. For what it has to do with me, I think it’s being underestimated by other people, or like people think I couldn’t notice important details. That’s what happens to Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters in the story, […]Read more "What’s This Got to Do With Me?"
One more. How much will it cost me, for just one more? A single life, a single mortal soul. Surely, it’s not too grand. How much will it bear me, how much will it strain my heart, to know I’ve taken another? Tick, tock. I do not have enough time to pause and ponder. I […]Read more "Suspense and Word Choice"
Hey everyone! I really liked the stories, I think they give really interesting insight onto what the Victorian Era was like for women at this time. There are many things that can make people feel trapped. I experience it a lot, and it’s not a fun feeling. There are things like mental illness, friends, family, […]Read more "“Free!

So it’s about time I start organizing and just focusing on the small improvements. I take harp lessons, and it’d be a good idea for me to start really practicing every […]Read more "Small Improvements and 1% Gains"
I started this year off by reading The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. I’ve been meaning to read it for years now, but I haven’t really gotten around to it. I’m so glad I started reading it, though – it’s so good! I didn’t doubt that, of course, as it had lots of popularity especially […]Read more "What I’ve Been Reading"
I walked back and forth at the rear of the crowd, unable to push my way through a sea of people. I could hear the man’s voice, booming throughout the square, bouncing off the walls and ground. But I couldn’t see the owner, even as I stood on my toes and peered between shoulders and […]Read more "I Can Use Figurative Language"
The year is 2094. A woman opens her eyes, and a screen appears in front of her face. “Hello!” it chimes. It gives her a list of different meals. “What would you like to eat for breakfast this morning?” She sits up with a sigh and selects a dish; fruity pancakes with spiced eggs and […]Read more "What will the future be like?"
