Hi internet! I worked almost every day in October and this is what I did: Ran a DIY terrarium program, set up a book art maker station, ran another colouring and zentangle program for teens, interviewed Andrew Pyper on stage, attended OLA’s annual RA in a Day conference in Toronto, participated in 2 staff training… Read More What I Loved #14: The Demonologist, Scandal, and Night\Shift
School is back in session! And that means so are my 7:30am shifts. As I readjust to driving in with the sunrise, I reflect on all the fantastic books I’ve read this summer. My currently reading list is getting hazardously long, especially now that the Giller Prize longlist was announced (yay Andre Alexis and Heather… Read More What I Loved #13: The Martian, The Rook, Camping, Still Alice
It’s been awhile since I’ve pumped out a What I Loved post: I’ve been busy!

We broke some horrifying temperature records in Kitchener-Waterloo this week, and I’ve been coping with a large pile of excellent novels. Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson: Crazy, creative, disturbed, kept me up all… Read More What I Loved 9: Psychological Thrillers, Selma, Girl Talk
What I Read Quirk by Hannah Holmes. Ever since finishing my degrees, I’ll admit it, I’ve (kind of) missed studying. I’ve missed pouring my energy and brain power into learning new things and bettering myself. Sure I do that on the job, and in my spare time, but it hasn’t really felt the same.
