Saturday is for studying

Because I am so good at adulting, my life now revolves around finishing Anne Applebaum’s Pulitzer-Prize winning “Gulag” (and not the laundry like I probably should be). I am literally only 45 pages into her unnaturally enthralling prose and I can already tell this will be a book that changes a human being; that will change…

Narrowing research
