Compel (kəm-pěl')(verb):To exert a strong, irresistible force on

What compelled me to start this blog? To be honest, my motivations are unclear, even to me. As an English major my life revolves around literature and in it I find solace. This will be a place to explore literature as an extension and at times, a distortion of life. Beyond that, there are a lot of things I don't know. I don't know what I want to be when I grow up and I'm not sure I'm ready to get married. I don't know how to curl my hair or paint my toenails. I don't even know what I'll have for breakfast tomorrow.

One thing I do know it that I really hate the word blog and after this post I will avoid the word as if saying and/or typing it will infect my readers with Ebola. I need a place where I can say stupid things (reread the previous sentence for an example) and know that I have the right to express any irrational emotional outbursts without fault. In words I find comfort and in that search for comfort I write.

There will be book reviews. There will be poems. There will be rants. There will be pictures. There will be politics. There will be many things,life and literature, most of all.
