Re: The Most Satisfying Success

I think I'd have to say my most satisfying success (though this year has been huge in a lot of ways) was the time during a Quidditch game I got my first (and only) hit. Quidditch isn't my forte on here by a long shot, and I usually go into games praying I can at least know something, even if I don't...

Re: Howl's Moving Castle, Chapters 16-21

I found myself audibly going "ooh" "what?" "OH!" through the entire last few chapters of the book. Granted, this stretch of the book was probably the longest stretch of continuous reading of the story that I had. I agree with Shiloh here, I'd love to read it over again and read it in larger chunks. ...

Re: Howl's Moving Castle, Chapters 1-5

I got all the way through Chapter 4 almost forgetting that she was cursed into inhabiting an elderly body. Then reading Chapter 5 last night, I kept thinking wow, did she become a snot who doesn’t listen to or respect anybody quite quickly. But then again, I think she feels like she has the opportun...

Re: Opinion Question #3

I feel like I would love to have Neverland as an escape, but would not like to stay there. Given the high stress of adult life, I think the escapism would be lovely after a bad day. "'Hey, I'm going to take a weekend in Neverland to hang out with the mermaids and pirates" sounds like an AMAZING vaca...

Re: Your Book case

At my new house, we just bought a bookshelf from someone in the neighborhood. The top two shelves are full of books, and the entire bottom half is filled with board games. Eventually I'd like to have two shelves for more space, but this one is fine for now. Of the books I do have, one shelf is devot...

Re: Favorite Month of the Year

This is a tough one for me. My siblings and I were all born in April, and I love that it's spring and all of the wildlife has started to regenerate from the gross, ugly winter. I love that it starts getting lighter out at night so that you can go for walks after work in the nice weather. BUT I love ...

Re: Musical Statements

I think the beauty of art is that it's always an expression of the artist. A LOT of Pink's songs have very powerful, poignant messages and I love her for that. I know I have artists I enjoy just for fun, entertaining songs, and others that I love to listen to because of the power of the message. I t...

Re: Weird Food Habits

I thought of another one! I've grown up with prepackaged containers of chocolate pudding from the grocery store that comes with a vanilla layer in the middle (so the pudding goes chocolate/vanilla/chocolate). I eat one layer at a time and am very careful to make sure that I don't overscoop and get t...

Spring Break

I'm on spring break this week, as happens every year in the life of an educator in the United States. Someone asked the question today "what are you doing tomorrow?", and I honestly don't know. The only plans I had for the week were to get my wisdom tooth pulled and then drive to another state to vi...

Re: Favorite Dr. Seuss Book

I read a TON of Dr. Seuss, but for some reason, one of my favorites was always "The Foot Book". I think I enjoyed that it was rhyming and poetic. It was always an easy read and I loved the images describing the opposites. I think it might have been one of the first books I read all by myself as a ch...

Re: Fish in a Tree: Chapters 13-25

I definitely think people fit more than one label at a time or transition between labels without knowing it. I also think labels aren't always necessarily what people think they are. My favorite part of this section is where Albert tells Shay that the sweater she thinks of as the color of "royalty" ...

Re: Fish in a Tree: Chapters 1-12

Okay, so first I have to say...as an educator, I am in love with this book. As I think about Ally, she reminds me of one of my students. She seems to have a bad attitude and doesn't open up to many people, but that's likely due to the fact that she doesn't feel that anyone will understand or appreci...
