• September Classic Literature

    Yikes! I’ve been pretty busy with editing my own book, and totally forgot to schedule September’s blog post. It’s been crazy, but…here it is.

    This classic is one of my all time favorites too!

    Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

    Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson is perhaps better known for his other famous work: Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde. Treasure Island, however is one of his classic tale of treasure hunting and pirates, way before Pirates of Carribean.

    I read this book when I was a young adult, and then later actually read Stevenson’s biography in college. He seemed so lost with writer’s block, until he came across a story idea from a map his stepson drew for him.

    Treasure Island is an interesting story told through a teenager by the name of Jim Hawkins. It’s not just a story about pirates, but a fascinating and adventurous story that is filled with many themes. Some of the them are: greed, deception, lies, bravery, endurance, and trust.

    I hope you’ll pick up this classic and enjoy reading it!

  • L * O * V * E

    What am I listening to on my playlist?

    A little of Led Zepplin…

    A little of Nirvana…

    and then there’s this one from DJDS- a Lana Del Rey cover of Love.

  • The Less I Know The Better

    This is one of my favorite songs on repeat. It’s a favorite because I’m such a big fan of Tame Impala’s music.

    I normally do not post music with swear words, so I need to warn ahead. There is one word in the last two verse. I wish there was a cleaner version to this song, but since there is one swear word I think it can be an exception. 🙂

    The song begins at 1:10 if you want to skip ahead.
