10 Things I Want to be Remembered For

Someday, I will die. I hope to go peacefully as my grandpa did, lying on the couch in his sleep. I don’t want to be as young as him because he never really got to know any of his grandkids but still, peacefully in my sleep. At the end of my life, I hope someone […]

A Danny with 1000 Books He Loves

You want to know what book I love? Me too. I’m looking at my bookshelf and I’m trying to decide which one I really love the most. My eyes keep jumping from dust jacket to dusk jacket and I I keep thinking with every new cover, this is the book I love. But I love so […]

Spending Money

I sat down in the teacher’s room today during my break to get some reading done, but I was interrupted almost immediately by my school’s director, Yulia. She beckoned for me to follow her to her office (which was weird because she has excellent English). She wanted to show me this: That’s right, the books […]

The Death of the Starks

Sometimes I wonder if George R.R. Martin is the only person who’s rooting against the Starks. Last night I finally finished A Dance with Dragons, the fifth and most current book in The Song of Ice and Fire series. For those of you unaware, these are massive books.

A teacher

It feels like I’m cheating the system. Read over this blog post. Or read this excerpt from it: Summer is a funny time of year for a Peace Corps TEFL volunteer. Classes are over, and with the exception of camps (which we aren’t required to do), there really isn’t a lot of organized work for […]

Mr. Hurd, say no more

Finished another book, thought I would review it quickly in order to sway you. A SpineHolder’s Manual by Neil Hurd It is an interesting story as to how I came about this book. It was an early night at work this past semester and I was walking home in the rain. As I walked up […]

His boring ass life

Alright, I know I said I would write a little a few days ago but I never got around to it. It isn’t that I have been busy, I just have been doing other things. I think I will start this one off with the first book review of the summer. My Boring Ass Life […]

Doodling the life away

I just wrote that I am doodling away my summer. Now, while that is far from the truth because I am doing far more than doodling this summer, it wold be great if it was true. Much less stress if I could draw, maybe sleep and eat. It is currently two weeks into my summer […]
