Music Monday: Fatima’s YMCA Work Out Playlist

I started going back to the YMCA with the following wellness goals in mind: Prevent weight gain. Clear the mind. Important in creativity. Manage stress. Get my conditioning back and start running again. Adding movement to go with modifying food after hibernating all winter. Why the Y? I have one downtown and use it after … Continue reading Music Monday: Fatima’s YMCA Work Out Playlist

Top 10 Book Lover Struggles

For the record, I have struggled with all of it. I especially excel in number 9, losing my bookmark in my sheets. Too bad there 9a doesn’t exist, that’s leaving the book on your bed and somehow sleeping on it. That actually happened one night.

While I enjoy Goodreads, the Savvy Reader 50 Book pledge has shelves to customize and colour code, badges for various reading milestones, and allows for audiobooks as well.

Just a word of warning. I tried opening the red, full-story, bar and got nowhere. The original source is the New York but even this excerpt from Longreads gives people a glimpse into Carla Hayden and the work she does at the Library Of Congress.

I learned my mind was Teflon at the time while memorising a monologue for the class but helped me get out of some areas … Continue reading Finding My Funny
