Happy National Voter Registration Day, Tumblr.
The number one way of celebrating it? Registering to vote.
Every year, millions of eligible Americans neglect to register, which means that millions of important voices are utterly silent on Election Day. Don’t be one of them. There’s basically a 100% chance that something you care about is on the ballot, something you don’t want to be quiet about.
So be one of the loud ones. Register already. It’s an easy form that you already know all the answers to. No excuses.

Apparently I got the anniversary edition of THE LONE RANGER AND TONTO FISTFIGHT IN HEAVEN. The introduction was great and I had no idea he was responsible for the film Smoke Signals. I’m only four stories in but I’m already really happy this was on my to read list.

Finished BLOOD, BONES, AND BUTTER by Gabrielle Hamilton yesterday morning. I was assigned this years ago to read for a book club meeting that I never made it to and therefore, never read the book. It’s been hanging out for awhile.
I’m not sure why, but the personal life details caught me extremely off guard. Some passages felt so intimate and personal, that I felt like a voyeur into Hamilton’s life. It was enjoyable, but I almost wish there was less personal reveals and more focus on working in kitchens, or international travels. Although her personal life and food life are so intertwined, I’m not sure how she could have done that really.
I’m definitely going to have to eat at Prune at some point now. Maybe for our next special occasion. 
If you enjoy memoirs or have dreams of being a chef or owning a restaurant, give this a read. 
I also never realized the cover image was an upside down chicken until today, which makes sense after you read the book why this is on the cover…I thought it was an oyster for the longest time. 
GoodReads Rating: 3 stars (I liked it.)

But Tumblr’s register to vote banner makes me really, really happy.

If you’re eligible to vote in the US, make your voice count!

Grrr. Grinding my teeth from group project frustrations and it’s not even 9 yet.

Finished BLOOD, BONES, AND BUTTER this morning. Review to come once I get a moment. Today’s been a bit weird.

Personal info wise I'm pretty awesome, occasionally funny, and frequently getting lost.

I live in Brooklyn and recently left the book publishing world after six years to finish up my MBA and work on my writing.
