BOOKS AND BLOGGING PHILOSOPHY

Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!
Well, I've made it 18 months now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

If I could do it all over and go back to college, I would still like to go to Young Harris College(now that it is a 4 year college) however, I would major in Occupational or Physical Therapy. I have been trying to go back to school now to do this but it is much harder now. My passion changed from Art after my father was diagnosed with brain cancer and became paralyzed on his left side.

I'd do pretty much what I'm doing now. I'd go to UNC-Chapel Hill and study American Indian Studies. The only difference is I'd add an Anthropology major to the mix as well. Then I'd go to graduate school, like I'm planning to do anyway.

PS Cute bunny!

Katie Amanda said...

I love what I do, but I would also have loved to be a dog trainer specializing in bully breeds. I would also have loved to start an animal rescue. Maybe some day..

Linda Kish said...

Stanford medical school

lkish77123 at gmail dot com

Stephanie Huff said...

I love my current career (school psychology) and I am just getting started in it, so if I was to go back to the beginning of college I am not sure I would want to major in something other than psychology. If I was, I would want it to be library science or English (with the plan to be an Editor). As to where I would go? I loved my undergrad and had a great experience there, but if money was no object, I would probably go to some big city.

Kim Reid said...

I would take time off from college to travel overseas - Thanks!

Flo said...

Travel! Semester abroad, semester at sea, go all around Europe while I'm still young enough for hostels.

BookAttict said...

If money was no object, I'd totally be a perpetual student! First I'd go to Paris-Sorbonne University and study languages -- a bunch of them -- with PLENTY of foreign exchange enrichment programs.

Then maybe a degree in philosophy, writing, then art history and probably an international business degree and international law...at which point I'd probably be around retirement age, so I could relax...and travel some more!

Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
