Fried to Frozen: Month Three (and a half)

By on January 5, 2019

Wow. Time flies when you are on exchange. I’m sitting in the library while I’m writing this, simultaneously working on my final papers, studying for an exam, and procrastinating. And all I can think of is that I am leaving Alaska so soon. Like in four days.  I’m so excited to go home and see […]

In 2019, I want to begin as I mean to go on, to be intentional with my choices involving Reading Whale.

Fried to Frozen: Small Fish, Big Pond

By on November 29, 2018

Coming from a school of around 30,000, it was a huge adjustment to learn how a small school functions. Even before coming to Alaska, I realized how different UAS would be when there were only four classes I could sign up for that would fit into my requirements back home. And in getting here, there […]

Fried to Frozen: Month One

By on September 22, 2018

Last week, I was studying in the housing lodge near my apartment when I got distracted by screaming. I looked up and saw a crowd of people running up the walkway, yelling indecipherable words, causing a whole lot of hubbub. I thought to cause that much excitement, there must be something really cool going on–that […]

Review: A Darker Shade of Magic

By on June 12, 2018

A Darker Shade of Magic is the first book by V.E. Schwab that I have read, but I definitely know that it will not be my last. This novel pulls you in with compelling characters, easy banter, and an innate sense for adventure. Instead of being cliche, Schwab’s universe is unique and multicolored (no pun […]

Soundtrack Suggestions: Me Before You

By on May 28, 2018

Everyone has a book that makes them ugly cry. For me, and maybe even you, it’s Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You. This book breaks your heart into a million pieces and then steps on it (continuously, if you consider the now two sequels to the first novel). If you are like me, you need a […]

Fried to Frozen: What it’s About

By on May 18, 2018

Big announcement time! I, a content resident of the southeastern United States, have decided to take on the Alaskan wild for the fall semester. Why would I ever trade humid heat for frigid tundra, you might ask? The answer is: I’m not entirely sure. I do love winter weather, the mountains, and the great outdoors, […]
