I’ve been thinking about bucket lists lately. I’m still pretty young – I’ll be 32 in February. But I feel very aware of age and what sort of things you’re capable of at different ages. Take for example my change in activity and exercise – I’m grateful that this is a change I made in my 30s while my body is still young and not later in life when it might be harder. I may be young but that doesn’t mean I’ll always be capable of all the things I want to do. My Nana is nearly 93 years and looks damn good for her age but she still obviously cannot do a lot of things.Continue reading
The Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly challenge post previously hosted by The Broke and Bookish and now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. You can follow along for each weekly post here. This week’s post is all about extraordinary book titles. It seemed like a very open ended subject so I decided to go with ten book titles that felt magical and full of possibilities!Continue reading
What I learned after last year’s distractions cost my hockey team our entire season? No more screwing up. No more screwing, period. As the new team captain, I need a new philosophy: hockey and school now, women later. Which means that I, Hunter Davenport, am officially going celibate…no matter how hard that makes things.Continue reading
Every year, October 11th is celebrated as National Coming Out Day. This day is always beautiful to me because not only do I see so many people taking the brave steps to come out but I also see so many allies reaching out and letting people know that they are safe to come out to.Continue reading
I came out on National Coming Out Day in 2012. Actually, to be fair, I came out the day after. I think I was inspired by the beauty of the day and I finally came to terms with the fact that I’d been hiding my bisexuality for awhile. Its been seven years now and I am confident and proud in my sexuality. National Coming Out Day means a lot to me.Continue reading
I used to be really obsessed with going to book events – signings, release parties, festivals, red carpet premieres for the movies and so on. I would take entire days off, get in line early and all of that. I loved being one of the first people in line and being in the front seat. I loved collecting signed books, taking pictures with authors, making friends with people at events. And its not that I don’t love any of those things but I do infinitely less events than I used to. Just this week alone – there was a Leigh Bardugo event in Glendale on Tuesday, a Marie Lu event on Wednesday in Los Angeles and a Jennifer L Armentrout event in San Diego tomorrow. A few years ago, I would have been at every single one, no problem. Now, I skipped every single one of them. Here’s why.Continue reading
I’ve been sick twice in the past week. Last week, I was hit with a sudden upset stomach that kept me out of work for a day since I couldn’t be far from the bathroom and the past two days, I’ve been achy, shaky, congested and frustrated with a sore throat.
And I’ve watched nearly two full seasons of The Vampire Diaries for the millionth time.Continue reading
