Cozy Up To Fall With These 3 Inspiring Self-Improvement Reads

My mother used to bring me and my three siblings to the library almost every week in the summer. We used to live for this until she implemented one specific rule: only two ‘candy’ books- the books we burned through as quick as candy- easy, thrilling, children/teen genres, fiction, and/or super short reads.

It’s helpful but it’s deadly- when used by those who are truly cowards, hidden under loads of layers, somehow boasting heaps of might and power. It’s something turned from humility to louder, louder, LOUDER.

Birthdays and Birthmoms: what I wish she knew

Today I turn 20. Just one more year to add to my short stack, right? Well, now that I think about it… not really.
