How To Make an Informed Political Decision

I've considered writing this post for a long, long time. I always stopped myself for some reason or another - not wanting to ruffle feathers, maybe, or trying to steer clear of such an emotional topic.

If you only read one of my blog posts ever, make it this one

*I've never used my blog for this purpose before, so I hope you'll forgive me - thanks in advance for taking a few minutes to read through this.

Throwback Thursday: The Nutshell Version Turns 1!

GUESS. WHAT. After the next Hunger Games movie comes out, they're going to start releasing prequels so the ADVENTURE ISN'T OVER YET. (In unrelated news: I have the literary and cinematic maturity of a 13-year-old girl.) That's not actually what I was gonna say, though. Guess what else! That's right - this week marks my one-year… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: The Nutshell Version Turns 1!
