I attended The Ring of Steel Theatrical Swordplay program

I learned some interesting tidbits about the martial arts used in sword fighting, like how a broadsword can be used kind of like a quarterstaff! It was cool to learn some of the history and technique behind sword fighting. It gives me some perspective on the fight scenes in Game of Thrones!

Read "What Happened To Goodbye"

What happened to goodbye by Sarah Dessen — I'm a big fan of Sarah Dessen's books, and this one didn't disappoint. If you like YA novels with realistic characters, family issues, and a little bit of romance, you'll like this book. Dessen's books are always my go-to for beach reads or airplane trips.
