On Reading and Learning

TL;DR – No book read, was ever in vain. Setting the Harry Potter series aside, and as much hate as I might get for it, even the Twilight series, I have not read or enjoyed much of the fantasy genre in my life so far (another recent exception being The Kingkiller Chronicles which I’m reading […]

It’s Okay To Be Happy

This post will probably end up being quite heavy and personal. TL;DR – it’s about my seemingly strange fixation with feeling sad.
