A Book That Takes Its Time: A Creative Adventure in Mindfulness | Astrid Van Der Hulst, Irene Smit, Editors of Flow magazine
post image

The last couple months have been busy; I finished my college education with an internship this summer to finally earn my diploma, I accepted my first full time salaried job, and I have moved back home (and have finally got settled in!!). I also have been in a HUGE reading slump, I‘m listening to many audiobooks, but it‘s just not the same as reading an actual book. Hoping to find my way out soon 😊

wanderinglynn Congrats on all your milestones! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🎉 2mo

I was early to volunteer at the Children‘s Museum for their St. Patrick‘s Day celebration, so I got some coffee and am listening to an audiobook waiting in the parking ramp. This book is getting good!!

I‘ve started to read a passage or two from the Bible before I go to bed. So far I‘m enjoying it, and it‘s been a good habit to get into.

The Glass Castle: A Memoir | Jeannette Walls

For one of my classes this semester our semester long project is to (attempt to) take 20% of our time (not when sleeping) and do something we enjoy, I obviously chose reading. I will say being a busy college student with a job and volunteering on the side, it is quite hard to read the 2.5 hours a day, but I‘m trying and that‘s all that matters 😊

pocketmermaid Wow - that‘s an awesome project! I love it. 9mo

This bachelor Monday consisted of being in the car for over 5 hours, an interview and obviously all things bachelor. I (more or less) grew up watching the bachelor and bachelorette with my mom, and now I use it as an excuse to hang out with my friends and drink wine on a Monday night. While I thought I knew everything about the bachelor franchise, this book has proved me wrong. If you have ever watched the show, I‘d highly recommend!

Spending the day filling out internship applications and listening to my newest audiobook. I‘m finding myself getting very distracted by the book!! While I‘m not fully finished with the audiobook I would recommend it, unless you are already terrified of droughts/natural disasters that is.

First audiobook of the year in the books. Like most other Nicholas Sparks books there was romance, and drama, which is exactly what I was hoping for. On to the next book on my list!

My semester is winding down, I can count the number of projects, quizzes and exam on my two hands!! With the winter break coming up I‘m finding myself to be very much in the holiday spirit. Listening to winter/Christmas themed audiobooks seem to be making me even more in that spirit!!

These books bring back so many memories for me. My second grade teacher had a box full of Boxcar Children books under her desk, but only students at a certain reading level could read them, and I was one of those students. Looking back, the box of books is probably what got me into reading. #memories #gratitude30

SassyBookworm I loved The Boxcar Children too! Such a great series!! 13mo

While I‘m sure the colors this challenges creator has in mind were the colors of fall. Unfortunately for us Wisconsinites, those colors are almost all gone, and snow is even beginning to fall for some! No snow yet for me, but it‘s a cold gloomy day, so some bright colors and tea were much needed. #color #gratitude30

I started listening to this last night. So far I love it, actually I love it so much I‘m thinking about buying a paper copy to keep.

britt_brooke I really enjoyed this! Such a sweet, cute read. I listened to the audiobook as well and appreciated the PDF that came with it. The physical book is beautiful, though. I took a peek at it at B&N. 13mo
Halechr I‘m listening to it on Scribd, so I don‘t have the PDFs, and I feel like I‘m really missing out! 13mo
Lea I bet listening is interesting. I‘m reading a library copy and I can totally hear her voice as I read. 12mo

There are so many things that inspire me. My parents never fail to inspire me to live my best life. I also find so much inspiration out in nature. These two things help me inspire me everyday, especially as I am working through my classes 💕 #inspiration #gratitude30

I‘ve never done a photo challenge before, but when I saw the prompts for #gratitude30 I decided to go for it. I‘ve been stressed out and overwhelmed with school and work lately, and have been forgetting all the good that I have in my world, and this challenge will help remind me a little😊

The first prompt is #Home. I‘m pretty grateful that I have two places to call home - both surrounded by beautiful nature, and amazing libraries.

Read the book, now to compare the movie that just came out on Netflix.

TheAnitaAlvarez The movie is cute, but I missed some stuff from the book that I loved 1y
Halechr I would agree, as always I loved the book more than the movie. 1y
