Take a hike: gleaning insight from books and NPR articles

I'm bored. Nothing impresses me anymore except documentaries and a few books and some things that make me cry (i.e. the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert). If I hear one more time about 50 Shades of Grey and what a wonderful book that horrible book actually is, I will probably quit my job and unfriend EVERYONE and just become a hermit.

I did finish reading a memoir last week that I really enjoyed, though. It's called Unorthodox and it's about this girl, Deborah Feldman, in Williamsburg who is a Hassidic Jew and gets married off at the ripe old age of 17. But it has a happy ending because she goes to college, writes a book, leaves her husband and takes the baby with her. The book came out earlier this year and she's only, like, 26. Super interesting.

Equally interesting, I read this article today on NPR that talks about how nature hikes could unlock your imagination. Need to start incorporating more nature hikes into my life probably.

Impress me. Give me something to write about. Or take me for a hike. I want to be more like Deborah, minus the Hasidic roots part. And the baby. 

That's all.
