I read Allegiant last week and I swear I was going to do this whole post on it but I forgot and now the moment has passed. Anyway, I kinda see why people might have been upset by the ending- I think Veronica Roth could have easily done it differently and it still would have made sense- but I was satisfied with it. Now I'm reading Of Triton which is the sequel to Of Poseidon by Anna Banks. It's a fun read.
Still plugging away at EPONINE. It's been slow going, especially since I had a computer/iTunes problem last week which took up my Thursday and Friday revising time. I have a feeling this is going to be a long revision because I have a lot of work to do, but I keep telling myself that's okay, it's not like I have a deadline.
What Inspires Me Right Now
On the weekend I read a very disheartening online article by a woman who loudly admitted that she looks down on wives and mothers. I couldn't get the article out of my head so on Monday I wrote my response here on my blog. I linked it on Facebook and Twitter and got a lot of positive reactions to my post. Not only did writing this response and getting positive feedback help me to let go of what that woman said, but it was amazing to hear all of the women out there who want to buoy each other up instead of tearing each other down, no matter what we choose to do in life. Now that's inspiring.
What Else I've Been Up To
It was my brother-in-laws 40th birthday on Monday, so on Friday night we had dinner at The Olive Garden (love their bread and salad) and then saw Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit which was a great movie, very edge-of-your-seat. Then on Saturday night we played games and had Chinese food at their house. I lost bad at Wizard but kicked butt at Settlers of Catan, winning both games we played. Woot woot! (I'm a tad competitive. But just a tad.)
