Reading is the the way most time passes in the trome – I’ve read so much since I moved in. Don’t tell elementary-school-self, she’d be bummed.

The Boys in the Boat has been a sure favorite. If you really knew me you’d know that my favorite genre [movie or book] is sports-oppression [think: Invictus].

Check out this one part…

“The team effort – the perfectly synchronized flow of muscle, oars, boat, and water; the single, whole, unified, and beautiful symphony that a crew in motion becomes – is all that matters. Not the individual, not the self.”

Which, I read something similar to, elsewhere  …

“Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning : don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.” – Romans 12:3-5




  A college dude recently told me that I seemed like a flora kind of girl. I had to tell him I didn’t know too much about that, but that I’ve always wanted to know more. 
If my love for yellow-orange-red willow reeds counts for anything, then, yes, I am a flora kind of girl.
