Book Review: Dancing on the Edge by Han Nolan

This semester I'm taking a class on adolescent literature. I didn't really need the class, but a professor I really admire is teaching the course, and I wanted to take one more of her classes before I left undergraduate studies for good. We've read a few books already such as Harry Potter, Ender's Game, Fruits Basket, and Redwall. I've gotten a... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Dracula by Bram Stoker

I've been taking a Gothic literature class this semester at FSU. It's been an interesting class, and so far I'm enjoying the stories we're reading. We've read Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and many others so far. Sadly, Dracula was not apart of the readings we were doing because it's pretty long and we have to cover...

What Happened on March 29th?

In order to get myself going on the paper I should be working on, why not do a little today in history? Let's get started! In 1638, the Europeans established a permanent colony in Delaware.

Dealing with only one of them is a nightmare. Some people can identify with one or the other, but will empathize... Continue Reading →

So let's take a look at what happened today in history shall we? In 1774, Great Britain passes the Coercive Acts against Massachusetts. They were... Continue Reading →

What Happened on March 26th?

So, here we are on my second day of looking at events that occurred on each day. Let's explore, shall we? In 1799, the French conqueror Napoleon Bonaparte captured Palestine. Before he became king of France, he led a raid into the Holy Land where he was defeated, with a quarter of his force was... Continue Reading →

What Happened on March 25th?

During my time at FSU, a favorite professor of mine would start her classes with informing us on what happened in history on that day. I always found it interesting to put things in perspective that way, and to learn odd things that I don't know (but could help me if I played trivia!) So,... Continue Reading →
