March Reading List

April 2, 2019 cassie 5 min read

March Reading List I finished nine books again this month, missing that goal of ten by one. Boo. But I’m not beating myself up because I’m going on a trip soon and will be in the car for about a week straight, lots of reading and writing time to catch up on. But otherwise here is my list! I started with some series that I had been reading the previous month and I added some new titles, including non-fiction. I also included…

Captain Marvel – A Feminist Reaction

March 26, 2019 cassie 4 min read

Captain Marvel – A Feminist Reaction So one would say that this isn’t something that I would typically write about, but honestly I haven’t been able to think of anything else since I saw the movie. Twice. Why am I so enamored with Captain Marvel? Well for one, I love action movies. And for two, I see myself in her more than any character I have ever seen.  So let’s dive on in and try something new. WARNING: THIS POST MAY CONTAIN…

30 Things Before Thirty – Recognize Your Opportunities

March 21, 2019 cassie 3 min read

Recognize Your Opportunities In this 30 things before thirty post I talk about a not so fun topic, weaknesses. Now some companies that I have worked for use the word “opportunities” when it comes to weaknesses or failings, which I also believe is a nicer word and have adopted in my life. So how do you figure out your opportunities? And what opportunities am I talking about? We’ll get into it! Reflection I have done a lot of self-reflection in my personal…

30 Things Before Thirty – Embrace Change

March 5, 2019 cassie 4 min read

30 Things Before Thirty – Embrace Change Change! I’ve talked about it multiple times, especially in this series, so I thought that I would give it it’s own post. How at any age, once you start embracing change instead of rallying against it, can be fruitful instead of painful. But what can be so good about it? And what if it isn’t necessarily change that you would have picked for yourself? Well there are ways to work around that too. Change I’ve…

February Reading List

February 28, 2019 cassie 5 min read

February Books This month I did this post a little differently. I wrote each section right after I read the book, which should have been a no brainer before. This ensured that my opinions were fresh for each entry. I didn’t do that last month so when it came time to write the post, I racked my brain for each book to remember things I liked. Not that they weren’t good books, but I just have a pretty terrible memory. That being…

Girl Boss?

February 26, 2019 cassie 3 min read

Girl Boss? The term Girl Boss has gotten quite the press lately. Besides the title of an excellent book/ Netflix special, it’s also become a movement. If you’re not a fan of the phrase due to its connotations of diminished aptitude due to gender, I totally get that. But what it doesn’t reduce is the fact that women all over have taken, earned, and gained more power and motivation thanks to motivational female speakers everywhere. So why am I introducing or referring…

My Favorite Book Series

February 19, 2019 cassie 4 min read

My Favorite Book Series If you look at some of my monthly reads in my January post or keep up with me on Goodreads, you’ll see that I love book series. I think that was ingrained in me in childhood with Goosebumps, The Boxcar Children and The Babysitter’s Club. Now, I gobble up series in a months time, most of them mystery or suspense. But surprisingly, I do have a favorite series. The Gretchen Lowell/ Archie Sheridan series by Chelsea Cain. Introduced…

30 Things Before Thirty – Love Better

February 14, 2019 cassie 4 min read

30 Things Before Thirty – Love Better I titled this just simply love better because I think in my almost thirty years on this Earth that not only did I learn how to love, but I learned (and am still learning) how to love in the best ways possible. Love I’ve been through many ups and downs with love as many people have, but I’ve learned a lot of the downs I experienced could have been avoidable. A lack of communication, breakdown…

Favorite Coffee Table Books

February 12, 2019 cassie 4 min read

Coffee Table Books I saw this topic on a list of book blogger idea posts and actually thought it was a fun idea! Book blogging would be a good niche for me, but find myself struggling to stay on course. I think I’m still figuring out this blogging thing. If you guys have any advice, that would be amazing! Otherwise, we carry on! Coffee table books! Do you have any on your table? I find that generic coffee table books that have…

30 Things Before Thirty – Responding to Negativity

February 5, 2019 cassie 4 min read

30 Before Thirty Responding to Negativity Negativity! We all have experienced it, been the perpetrator of or have seen it on social media. This is something that is mostly unavoidable. Unless you were to put yourself in a bubble! So instead of telling you how to avoid it or “ban” it from your life, I’m going to tell you how to change your response to it. I’ll also talk about how negativity induces stress and how to turn your negative thoughts into…
