OSHA records obtained by Bloomberg document burning flesh, crushed limbs, dismembered body parts, and a flailing fall into a vat of acid. The files read like Upton Sinclair, or even Dickens.

Relationship status: Married

Favourite colour: Red

Pets: None–I’m allergic to cats, and my dad being allergic to dogs, we won’t get one because his allergies are severe enough he’d never be able to stay with us when visiting. I’m not really an animals-in-my-house person, though I don’t mind animals in other people’s houses.

Last song you listened to: Fanfare For The Common Man. Baby was screaming in the car, and music generally calms the savage beast, and that was the last thing on my playlist.

First fandom: The Scarlet Pimpernel, which had this tinytiny obsessive fanbase. I was fourteen, and it was great.

Hobbies: writing, reading, drawing, baking, running.

Currently reading: Eek. I just finished two books, but I haven’t actually started another one. I do have The Jungle by Upton Sinclair checked out of the library though, so that may be next.

Chickening out of tagging, because I think a lot of my mutuals have already done this–but if you haven’t, feel free to tag yourself! :)

There is one kind of prison where the man is behind bars, and everything he desires is outside; and there is another kind where the things are behind the bars, and the man is on the outside.

Alright, I saw these photos in this post, and I just wanted to reiterate what I wrote on that post so that more people would have a chance to see it! I’m still looking up some of the other ones whose titles are a bit harder to make out, but let’s take a look at some of these…

1. GREEN (Enough said)
2. Frankenstein (Also enough said)
3. And Then Tiger Told the Shark is a novel full of golf stories. Why does this matter? Well…Anyone remember a golf course?
4. Wide is the Gate is a novel in a series by Upton Sinclair, and in this, one of the main characters, Trudy, supposedly loses her husband, Rudy, when he isarrested by the Gestapo. She doesn’t see him die, but is convinced he is dead. Sounds like another character we know who’s arrested by awful officers and presumed dead.
5. Black Spring. The info on this book was a bit vague, but as far as I could tell, the author who wrote this is known for exploring humanity and, more often,sexuality.
6. A Brief History of Nearly Everything. As far as I know, this book is unrelated.
7. DUSK And a Voice Singing. Okay. We all know a certain blonde who sings at dusk, once seen singing in a funeral parlor to a lonely country boy.If I find more relevant titles, I’ll alert you!!!

6. A Brief History of Nearly Everything. A brief history of nearly everything could possible be hinting that Beth will return, but with memory loss and she gets a brief history about who she is and who her family is and everything that has happened.

7. DUSK And a Voice Singing. Okay. We all know a certain blonde who sings at dusk, once seen singing in a funeral parlor to a lonely country boy.

In the first picture, I’m just going through my APUSH syllabus and highlighting the To-Knows for this next unit!

The 2nd picture is me filling out my reading schedule for my next book for AP Lang and Comp, which I created myself!

Before I go to the park to hangout with a friend, I’m reading The Jungle by Upton Sinclair.

Study Tip: If you use printables like the amazing ones from theorganisedstudent or strive-for-da-best , like me, put them in protective sheets so you can just write on them with Expo Marker instead of having to reprint!!!
