What I've Read:

Popery (Catholicism/Spirituality/Religion):

Pens:

  • 25 Resources To Jump-Start Your Pen Addiction (The Gentleman Stationer): This is a great article exploring different resources and information about fountain pens. Have you been interested but not sure about pens? This is for you. 

InCoWriMo: It's February and that means that it's International Correspondence Writing Month. If you don't know what that is, these links will give you all you need to know to participate in this gloriously analog celebration. 

Paperbacks (Books and Writing):

Life in General:

Things to make you smile:

Education:

  • Why academics need to get moving (The Guardian): I know from personal experience how easy it is to get out of the habit of moving when overwhelmed by the work of academia. This article serves as a great reminder that academics need to be in motion to do well in the field (and well in life). 
  • Paying Graduate School's Mental Toll (Science Magazine): This.is.my.life. Really, though, almost every person in my PhD program struggles with anxiety or depression. I know a lot of academics who struggle with this or with other emotional/mental problems. But there is almost no support for graduate students in this. I'm glad this article is raising the visibility of the problem. 

  • What Ivy League students are reading that you aren’t (Washington Post)

Simplicity and Minimalism:

  • On Borrowed Dime (Minimal Millenial): As a student who is deeply in debt, this speaks to me. 

Farming, Food, Health, and Nutrition:

What I've Written: 

  • Read my review of Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
