The Marvelous Month of May: Favorites, Reviews, and Wrap-Up



A lot of things have happened this month. It's been marvelous. Marvelous, from Old French "merveillos" meaning "causing wonder."

What I've Accomplished

  • I was in a production of Hello, Dolly! I played Rudolph, the headwaiter.

  • Educational philosophies. I could talk to you about this for hours.

  • Owl City's instagram posts

  • HOW WARM IT IS.

What I've Read

  • Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. A book about the importance of books? Yes. Dystopian, classic, has a creepy tone. Definitely worth the read.

  • The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. I re-read this for my blog launch giveaway, and loved it. Nostalgic. Wonderful.

  • From the Mixed-Up Files of Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg. Some Saturdays are made for curling up with a Newberry medal winner. A comical, wonderful book for a wonderful day.

  • Storybound by Marissa Burt. This book got better and better the more I read. By the end, I was in love with its story, and dying for the next one!

  • Sense and Sensuality by Ravi Zachariah. A really interesting concept. Worth the read.

  • Some Thoughts Concerning Education by John Locke. I'm a nerd when it comes to educational philosophy. I read this for my education class. I could go on and on about the good ideas and bad ideas...but I don't think that would be too interesting.

Goals for June

  • Finish my year's work for my leadership training. Don't stress about it, but do it.

  • Finish sophomore year.

  • Read a book about apologetics.

  • Ride my bike to the lake.

  • Learn cross-stitch?

  • Learn more about Jesus.
