Thoughtful Thursday: A Tweet Challenge

Thoughtful Thursday: A Tweet Challenge

Thoughtful Thursday was inspired by Reading is Fun Again. I recently purchased the book 642 Tiny Things to Write About, compiled by The San Francisco Writers’ Grotto, as a way to challenge myself and keep the spirit of Thoughtful Thursday alive. Feel free to join in.   Boil down Hamlet, Shakespeare’s longest play to a tweet. Power-Hungry Uncle. Mad Prince. Drowned Girlfriend. Poisoned Mother. Death consumes all. Fortinbras for the win. Now tweet the plot of the original Star Wars Luke, Leia, Han and a Wookie go on adventures to save the galaxy, I think. Not really sure, I watched Star Trek. #LiveLongAndProsper Tweet the story of your life…so far. Former Minnesotan becomes a master organizer from Iowa. #storyofmylife Tweet your day, so far. Have you done this? How about that? When will you do this? What about that? NOTHING IS EVER ON TIME! #mylifeismadness Twitter 5 Facebook 0 Google+ 0 Pinterest 0 StumbleUpon 0

Thoughtful Thursday #01: Bad to the Bone

Thoughtful Thursday #01: Bad to the Bone

Reading Is Fun Again hosts Thoughtful Thursday. Each week, readers are invited to share their thoughts (either in comments or their own blogs) about various bookish topics. Everyone is welcome to join. Question for September 11                  See Upcoming Topics Who is one of your favorite antagonists/villains of all time? It’s been over a year since I read Gone Girl and I honestly still believe that Amy is my favorite antagonist of all time. Gillian Flynn crafted a fine thriller that kept me turning the pages wanting to find out who-dun-it. Amy was masterfully crafted to get your blood boiling. The book still gets my riled up when I think about how I felt at the end and how much I despised Amy. In fact, I still despise her and curse Flynn under my breath for toying with my emotions like a bad girlfriend (or boyfriend). So, here’s to you, Amy Dunne, may you get all you deserve and more. You certainly have a special place in my heart. Twitter 1 Facebook 0 Google+ 0 Pinterest 0 StumbleUpon 0

Thoughtful Thursday: My Childhood Aspirations

Thoughtful Thursday: My Childhood Aspirations

A couple weeks ago, Feature & Follow asked for questions they could use. I came up with a pretty extensive list and with the start of school for many and news that NASA is developing a new rocket, this one has stuck with me. When you were in grade school, what did you want to bewhen you grew up? Why? At one point, I wanted to be a nurse. And then in grade school that shifted. We started studying space and we followed Christa McAuliffe‘s journey through the NASA space program. My dream changed. I wanted to be an astronaut. I stuck with the dream of being an astronaut a long time. As I grew older, I discovered that math and science were not my strongest subjects in classes. And then I realized that there was no way I could survive some of the training that astronauts endure. Heck, I can’t even ride a roller coaster without freaking out. So I focused on the fact that Christa was a teacher and pursued that. While, in the end, I didn’t end up in the classroom, I have worked in the Education field for 14 years now. It wasn’t a traditional path […]
