Update On Life

I am halfway through Tara Westover's memoir, Educated, and I'm simply appalled by the life she has lived as a child. I can't wait to finish it! I've been so preoccupied with work, and well. . . life; I haven't had much time to write or post anything on here. But I'll get back to it, eventually. Happy Friday!

Update 08/16/2019

While I sit here at work waiting for my boss to finish up a last minute bid, I can quickly give a short review on this memoir. This book kept me up at night, even after I put it down - it unraveled thoughts and emotions that haven't surfaced in years.  As much as the words on the paper caused me pain and agony to read, I couldn't look away, I couldn't stop reading. To say the least that Tara had a rough life, is an understatement, it's  not the right word to describe what she endured. At the end of it all, she's a survivor. And through education she learned to look at the world differently, with her own eyes, not her fathers, not her brothers. She not only educated herself, she was able to accomplish so much more than someone who has the privilege and is fortunate enough to attend an establishment that offers some sort of education.
