There’s work to be done, and I want to continue to grow as a person by continuing to educate myself and putting action to my words while showing my support. That’s why I made sure to take the time this month to support black authors and educating myself with the following books.

What My Hobbies Say About Me

I’m truly blessed to have the privilege of starting a new job right after graduation. One of the questions that I was asked while in the interview was, “What are some hobbies you do in your free time?” While I’m pretty sure my answer to this question is not the reason I got that job, I wanted to focus on it since this month is National Hobby Month.

Reading List: Summer 2020

Originally, this was going to be a list of beach reads that I recommend. However, Florida has recently become an epicenter for COVID-19, so I’m not sure when the next time I will want to go to the beach will be. The result is that I have included more than the typical light beach reads (but those are fun, and I’ve included them as well). If you’re looking for a new book, perhaps you’ll find something once you finish reading this post.

To All the Boys I Loved Before Book Review

This past Christmas, my sister gifted me a copy of To All the Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han. It was a series that I had been wanting to read for a while, especially since Netflix turned it into a romantic comedy that everyone was instantly obsessed with.
After reading it, I can see why. The sentiment that the book is better than the movie remains true in the case of this book. I found myself laughing and crying as I read.
