Settling In

Reader's Thumbprint

I'm not going to lie, it has been very tough adjusting to this semester.  But now that I am finally settling into a routine, I am going to be posting more!

For me, this semester is all about self discovery and planning my future.  Law school is probably going to be happening, but I am okay with that.  Maybe even a little bit excited.  I am currently taking a class called Race, Crime, and Law that has won me over to the legal side of things.  Plus all the good jobs require a JD, so it is definitely in the cards for me.

This semester has also been a semester of non-stop reading, which is a good thing to practice for law school.  Last semester was full of Greek literature which I loved, but definitely got sick of by the time that finals came around.  That's probably the number one reason that I was glad to have winter break:  it gave me time to rekindle my love of reading.  Along with a book by Agatha Christe and a book on psychopaths, I read Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar.  It allowed me to appreciate a book in a way I had not been able to for a long time.  I'm really looking forward to the summer for the same reason.  That is not to say that the books that I'm reading this semester are not amazing- Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow contains some of the most important ideas for my generation- but it will be nice to lay in the sun and read a book at the pace of a normal human being.

Do you have any great books that bring you back to your love of reading?

Meet The Author

I'm Madysen, born and raised in Nebraska but now living out my dreams in New York City. I moved here to go to Columbia, but living in New York has become so much more to me. This blog is a space where I can share my experiences of reconciling my midwestern upbringing with the life I live in the city. But even bigger than that, this blog serves as a space where I can try to understand where I fit into the larger social world, where I want to go in life, and how I want to go about pursuing all of these endeavors.
