Just an example of the kinds of things I find interesting.

If you’re here because you followed that “link in my bio,” WELCOME!
If you haven’t followed me on Instagram (@desertmichelle), just…why?!

I realize that what I read isn’t all that interesting to most people. Some of what I post can be a tad…dramatic. It’s just the way I am, naturally impulsive and reactive. I lead with my feelings. I’m not all that academically intelligent, but I try my best to study and understand.

The truth is, I’m not “qualified” to write about anything other than my perception of the world around me, my experience. That’s just what this blog is, a collection of my processed experiences.

My goal here is to share what I’m learning, as I learn it. They are mostly my reactions and feelings, my personal connection to what I’m reading, a sort of virtual book club. I read a wide gamut of genres, from philosophy and sociology to memoirs and classic novels. I just love to hear other people’s points of view, their story, and reading “does it for me.” It’s HOT, ok?!

In a perfect world, I’d sit with you over coffee and cookies and talk about what we’re reading for hours. In lieu of that, you’ll have to put up with my rambling, my astonishment/dismay, and my emotional outbursts sprinkled with my own brand of humor in written form.  If you stick around, you’ll also find some short stories and articles about my own experiences: relationships, parenting, homeschooling, and social media exploits.

I’d love to know if you’ve read the books I’m reading and what you thought. If you have more resources, opposing or alternative viewpoints of the same subject, PLEASE direct me to them. I’d love to add them to my list!

If you’re anything like me, you’re here because you long to “virtually” connect with open-minded people, to peruse through someone else’s thinking, and maybe see what makes another reader tick.

That being said, on with the show!
