Jane Eyre – Book Review (5 stars)

When I started reading this book, I found it supremely boring (no don’t kill me yet, hold your horses), and it was a struggle to keep at it. In fact, I would have certainly DNFed it, if not for the fact that I was buddy-reading this book with Bookish Muggle, and I really did not […]

Fitness 2016: A Look Back + Fitness 2017: A Roadmap

If you have followed this blog for the last year, you have likely read my blog post(s) and endless ramble about wanting to adopt a more healthier lifestyle.
