QOTD: Work hard and read Mindy Kaling’s ‘Why Not Me’

As I’ve previously mentioned, I’m in that limbo state of uncertainty that comes with searching for a new job in a new city. I often get asked by well-meaning family members and friends what it is exactly that I do all day. When this happens, I often hesitate for a few seconds trying to figure out what to tell them. Because to be honest with you, some days I’m more motivated than others and don’t work hard enough. At least a few times a week I go through job posting sites and apply to any jobs that even remotely resemble …Keep Reading

It’s mid-March and almost springtime! I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by. However, I do kind of love how close my birthday is getting with every passing day. As any young person with access to wifi, I spend quite a bit of time (too much time, perhaps? nah…) browsing the Internet and catching up on my favorite sites.

I read a quote by Natalie Goldberg recently that I hope to use as motivation for this blog once I get my feet wet, so to speak: Write what disturbs you, what you fear, …Keep Reading

#danikate QOTD - Steve,

Hi. My name is Danielle, and I am a Reader.

I am a Reader. It’s not just about loving the look of books on a shelf or casually reading in a comfy chair on a rainy day. Being a capital “R” reader is actually part of who I am as a person and deeply affects the way I process things and live my life. I know I’m not the only one. In fact, there’s a whole community of us on the Reader spectrum who rely on books as a way of life and fulfillment. There are so many moments over the past 20 plus years that I can look back on …Keep Reading

How an INFJ feels about reading

This is perhaps the most accurate thing I’ve ever read about my love of books and reading… INFJs are often very passionate about reading. They enjoy all types of reading materials, whether that be an imaginative fantasy story, a serious non-fiction book, or even researching in depth information online. They enjoy the feeling of being engrossed in a good book and love the time alone to take it all in. Books are a big part of the INFJs life, and a big part of who they are. They also love researching new subjects online and absorbing as much knowledge as …Keep Reading
