First off, I was on the Blog Council last week, so I’ve known we were going to do this prompt for almost a week a now. And ever since I knew about the prompt, I’ve been fighting the knee jerk reaction to do one of my favorite athletes, musicians, or entertainers. Continue reading Seinfeld
By now you’ve read, seen, or at least heard about the hit movie and best-selling book Gone Girl. In short, it’s a mind twisting story about a seemingly happy couple who begin to fall apart until the beautiful wife, Amy, disappears on their 5th wedding anniversary. The novel takes unimaginable turns and leaves the reader wanting more and more, myself included. I would even go so far as to say author Gillian Flynn is the one person I can think of right now that I would want to have dinner with. Continue reading The woman behind Gone Girl
What do you think it would be like to leave your mark on the world in a way that even far after you are gone your literary works are so respected and well-known by many people? What would it be like to contribute something so timeless to the world? After reading those two questions you must think I know everything there is to know about F.

During a dinner, the three broad questions that I’d ask him are: “Tell me about your youth…your school years, and India.”What are the small day-to-day things that make you successful”” and “how do you inspire and manage?”
I read “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” when I was sixteen- a junior in high school- and read about Maya Angelou’s life up to the same age. Our world’s were so dramatically different from one another but I was still able to empathize in many ways with 16 year old Maya Angelou. The experience of reading this book left me a awe of her accomplishments and so full of respect of the richness and beauty of her words. Continue reading A Lifetime’s Worth of Questions: Dinner with Maya Angelou
This is not the first time I have come across a question like this. Throughout my education, I have answered this question many times, but have never felt fully satisfied with my answer. In the past, I have felt obligated to provide answers that include people like Rosa Parks, F.D.R, and Abraham Lincoln. While surely dinners with these individuals would be monumental, I feel obligated to pick someone who I feel more of a personal connection too.
