This week I finished a great non-fiction book.
When I began reading The Radium Girls by Kate Moore, I got a little annoyed by all the names and personal information. “Get to the science stuff and what happened!!”
But soon I realized that I wasn’t just reading any old science/history book.
This book introduced the radium girls not as a general concept, but as people. As I read each name, I got to know each girl– her dreams, her hopes, her love, and ultimately her death.
So what I thought would be a book filled with data turned out to be an emotional, powerful read. Such an amazing book! 🌟
Otherwise the week was filled with finishing up my classes and rolling around in bed with menstrual cramps and Buffy the Vampire Slayer 😁
I did make a decision to have no-internet March! Except for classes and the blog, that is 😉 It’s hard having to give up cute pics, like the spagoote dog I found 😂 but I think it will be a good experiment to see how my life changes without constantly checking my phone.
He is so cute!
That’s about it for this week. I start new classes tomorrow, so I’m excited. And I’m not rolling around in pain anymore, which is also quite exciting 😏
