Happy New Year 2016!

Happy New Year everyone!

Well, the new year has rung in and I’m eager to get out here and get all my challenges complete. This week went well – no glitches at work, hung out with some laid back friends for New Year’s Eve, that kind of stuff. And I don’t work today! YAY! (I work the weekend, but having a holiday in the middle is wonderful.)

Studies: I finished the first two chapters of my EMT book in anticipation of January being a very full month for me. If you’re interested in checking out my short notes

Favorite Books of 2015, in no particular order:

I note an interesting pattern here, which I’ve never seen before – 4 of the five are non-fiction. Also, White Trash Zombie jumped in there even though I hadn’t really expected it to be all that great. Who knew?

  1. Happy New Year Rachel.

    It is interesting that your favorite books of the year were non – fiction. I read a good amount of it myself. When I make my own personal lists of favorites I tend to keep the fiction and non fiction seperate in my mind.


  2. Yeah, there actually weren't 5 fiction books that really stood out to me. The only other one that popped when I read through the list was The Girl with All the Gifts which was a “literary” zombie novel.


  3. Happy New Year! I had a low key one too and it was nice. I liked your post on creationism- as a Christian I'm probably more sympathetic to that view than some, but I think it's complicated. 🙂 As a young person I really struggled with evolution vs religion, and I don't pretend to have it all figured out. LOL.

    Have a super week.


  4. Oh, I loved “Little House in the Big Woods!” I know a lot of people found it dull because there isn't much of a plot, but I loved the “slice of life”-ishness of it.


  5. I haven't figured it all out either, but I don't believe they are mutually exclusive. Just because there's a God does not mean there is no evolution. I'm not sure what the big deal is, honestly. The Bible is one big parable, in my own opinion.
