Welcome to my inner world

My brain has always been full of ideas and interests. In high school, I participated in band, the school paper, the speech and drama team, and a variety of academic competitions. I took piano lessons. I enjoyed all of my classes, English and math and science. When I went to college, I decided to major in journalism because I enjoyed it so much, but also because I felt it would give me an opportunity to still investigate and learn about a variety of topics as I wrote about them (or edited what other people were writing). I still love to learn about almost anything, and reading and book reviewing has given me a great way to delve into tons of topics. I feel I’ve become somewhat specialized in a few areas, and I have a few particular interests I feel particularly passionate about enough to blog on. So this site will be the umbrella for the various topics I’d like to address, which will include, for the time being, books, beauty and self-image, mental health, home and family life, and then just whatever else I’d like to share. Feel free to contribute to the discussion by commenting.

  1. You are to be commended for such a fresh, honest approach to your thoughts and feelings. I’m amazed at how much ground you have covered in the last few days. It seems that our life path’s have been parallel in a lot of ways so I’m looking forward to our back and forth correspondence on things.
    Talking about books worth reading, we were in church in Park City last October and the teacher used some thoughts from a book that particularly interested me so I gave each of our children a copy for Christmas. Since you like reading so much, you might want to read “The Anatomy of Peace” by The Arbinger Institute. I have the book if you would like to borrow it.
