It is an illusion that youth is happy, an illusion of those who have lost it; but the young know they are wretched, for they are full of the truthless ideals which have been instilled into them, and each time they come in contact with the real they are bruised and wounded.— W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage
About me:I am 28 years old, have been married for 7 years to a ridiculously smart Oracle guru, and I am a stay-at-home-mom to a four-year-old little girl who is sweet/ fun/ wild/ smart/ exuberant/ difficult. I have two bachelor's degrees, one in history and one in literature, and have finished the second year of my masters in library science. If I could choose any job in the world, I would like to get paid to read all day; maybe to give my opinion, but mostly to just sit and read all day long. I love to read. I also love to write, and find that I communicate much better with the option to edit and revise first. I am a Christian, and I love the Lord with all my heart.
