Life & Love (and some hates)

My favorite painting of all time
     Normally I try to avoid writing about myself. One, because often times I can find it very narcissistic and two, I seriously doubt anyone would really care about my personal life. So, the basis of my blog isn't necessarily writing about myself, but moreover my general opinion about the world and the media. From Downton Abbey Confessions, movie reviews, defense posts (Cosette, Frodo Baggins and Jane Foster) and most recently exploring the historical content of holidays (Redeeming St. Valentine's Day. And wait until you read my St. Patrick's Day post!!).

     On this day though, I'm really bored. Alright the truth is I'm...actually running away from doing my homework, which consists of---
  • reading two history chapters 
  • taking two history quizzes 
  • writing a letter to the editor of a newspaper for English
  • studying for my English mid-term 
  • doing my math homework. 

   Yeah, I'd rather be blogging. Then I got an interesting idea of taking the pins that I have from my Life & Love Pinterest board and using them in a Blogger post about my personal interests in life. I mean if you really want to know about my interests you can stop by my Pinterest page, but oftentimes that's not the same as really writing down who you are as a person.
