My college recently endorsed this challenge "Live Below The Line" where for 5 days you try to survive on just $1.75 a day, for 5 days. In our modern society of fancy clothes and automatic doors its easy to forget about the little things, food, water, life. I think we should all experience what 1/3 of the world's population lives through each day.
Heres the idea, spend only a $1.75 a day for 5 day. Are you up for the challenge? …Continue

Fellow nerdfighter Eliose Pearson has started an awesome project called the Project for Fiction (punning on Vlogbrothers' Project for Awesome.) The main point of the Project for Fiction is to get together a group of young writers to collaborate on an awesome multi chapter piece of fiction.
I'm super exited about it and can't wait to get to work on it. If any one is interested, use the link bellow.
P.S. I will also be posting this on…
Today marked my 20th video, and my midpoint in my 3 month vlogging journey. So, to give a treat to the 32 awesome subscribers that actually like my videos and watch them, I decided to make one video every day in the rest of July.
In addition to awesome increasing strategy, I've also decided to allow my subscribers to come up with a challenge/punishment to do for every 50 subscribers I have. Likely, I will hit 50, considering…Continue
I was at my little brothers birthday the other day and while I my father, his brother and their wifes sat around the coffee table and chatted. Somehow, as these things often do the talk quickly turned to family history, then a off hand comment caught my attention: "The man I am named after is probably long dead." probably?
As it turns out my great grandmothers brother went out of the country, to the Americas, among other places, he was in written contact with his sister for some time…Continue

I would like to start off by saying that this book was no where near as enthralling as Looking for Alaska. The book started off rather quickly and then started to pander off. I would have to say that the best part isn't even the ending. The best part of the book, in my own opinion, was the first half of Part Three. That's a moment where you get to see a lot of personality in the characters. Up until that point every character in the book just seemed flat and unrealistic. They seemed as if…Continue

So the New Year is just about upon us and I think that this year I'm going to do a bunch of new things, starting with the 100 Book Challenge! I'm going to read a few books before the year is over so since it is so close to the turn over I figure I might as well count them. I am not going to list them all right now, since I don't really have 100 books off the top of my head I want to read so instead I will keep updating my blog with the ones I have read, am reading, or that I intend to…Continue

Because really, with a title like that...who could resist? Anyways, updates on the 100 book challenge! Also, one must note that if I don't remember a character's name, I will probably make one up and include a note about the character so as everyone else can identify them.
Harmony (Project Itoh): I seem to be into the whole perfect/imperfect society books lately. Haha. This one was surprisingly good, with a totally twist out…Continue

Well, over the last couple of days I finished The Masuda Affair, The Maze Runner and The Last Little Blue Envelope. I found all of them very good, though Maze Runner and Blue Envelope were my favorites out of the three.
So The Masuda Affair (I.J. Parker) ended up not being a mystery…Continue

Last year, my goal was to read 100 books and I managed 145. That's pretty much my limit, so this year's goal will be 150 books. I will update my list here as I go along. Any recommendations would be wonderful and very welcome!
Other reading goals include reading some of my OWN books, reading books off of the 1001 Books To Read Before You Die List, reading books by GLBT authors or about GLBT issues, reading more non-fiction books and reading 'women's studies' type books.…
With a new year comes a new challenge!
I, Katie, will be reading fifty books in the year 2010. (I wanted to make it more, but with me going to college this year, I thought I'd lighten the load.)
Since I am reading less books than I wanted, I thought I'd make this challenge a little more interesting.
I. Want. To. Vlog.
I do not make New Year resolutions, but I would like to make more videos. So I am going to try to make videos about the books that I read…
