Book of the Week 4/22 – 4/28

So I haven’t actually finished a new book this week (end of the semester = no free time), but I can say that I’m dead in the middle of The Odyssey written by Homer.  I started this book last January and have yet to finish it.  Normally I only read one book at a time, and …

Quote of the Week: Fear of Failure

“What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?” – Unknown I saw this while stumbling through random sites last night and I had to stop and consider it.  Every so often you find a quote that fits your life so well that it’s almost as if it finds you.  This …

Books of the Week 4/15-4/21

A Night to Remember by Walter Lord Last weekend was the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, and as a serious Titanic-ophile, I decided to make an event of it.  I watched the 1957 movie A Night to Remember with my boyfriend at the exact time it sank (translated to the Eastern timezone though) …

My Library

I love to read. I have been reading since I was at least four years old, and I haven’t stopped since.  My room at home is a collection of bookcases and shelves that are all double-stacked.  My dorm room, which of course is rather tight to begin with, is full of piles upon piles of …

Who is Mother Lorelai?

Look at this list, and see if you can figure out whether it was Rory or Lorelai who did it: Sleeps through fuzzy alarm clock alarm Throws a tantrum when her mother shows up in the principal’s office Begs for coffee at the diner counter Dresses in shorts and cowboy boots Makes jokes during awkward …

Share Our Strength: The No Kid Hungry Campaign

Once again I’m choosing to detour from the usual Gilmore Girls analysis, but if you ever read my posts, this is the one you’ll want to sit down and pay attention to.  I want to tell you about an organization called Share Our Strength and their No Kid Hungry campaign that is fighting to end …

The Gellar – House Project

the gellar-house project « discipletonone. I stumbled upon this post relating Paris Gellar to Dr. Gregory House.  Both are extremely intelligent, cynical, sarcastic, and direct.  It would be an interesting match up.  What do you think?

Welcome to Paris

“You’ll never beat me. This school is my domain and the Franklin is my domain. And don’t you ever forget that.” – Paris Where do I begin with Paris?  It’s almost intimidating to write about her.  Like Rory, she’s remarkably intelligent, driven, and is used to being at the head of her class.  She, too, …
