About the Blog

After a year of blogging at my World of Warcraft specific blog (A Healadin's Tear), I decided that I had enjoyed the facet that blogging had added to my creative mind and even though I relinquished playing that game and in turn blogging about it, I found myself unable to leave the community that I had unearthed in my experience. Another healthy benefit of leaving the online gaming community is that I rediscovered my love for reading. It isn't that I had completely abandoned reading, but going into college when it was about reading what I had to and then I found the game, I sort of grew addicted to other things instead; I had nurtured a great love for books in high school. Anyways, when this blog started it was to be a personal blog about a variety of things in my mundie life but instead, I found myself lost in the world of book blogs constantly and I knew that is what I wanted this to be. After a few encouraging conversations, I took the leap and made another topic specific blog but one I feel compelled to share for potentially, the rest of my life.

About the Author

I am a twenty-something college graduate who has finally found what she wants to do with her life. On top of the standard be a loving wife and mother, I want to be a librarian. Not a school librarian, but to serve public libraries and reach people of all ages who desire to expand their reading passion. Right now my day job is in fact working at the library in a position that is called a Library Assistant. I deal strictly in circulation of the books. This means that I get to get books into the hands of people who enjoy them EVERYDAY! The one facet that is a snag in the position is that it is adult books, so I don't get to read much of the books I handle personally but I get to learn about new releases and it is a founding reason this blog may feature some adult literature now! I have been a blogger for a while now and in fact, mentioning reviewing blogs in my interview was a star, unique point that helped me get this job. I hope to go to graduate school for Library Science and move to a big system that can afford teen services, I would say it is more than hope, it is the end goal!

Other Eclectic Facets of Life:
  • I am in love with the mythology of the Phoenix. I believe that for all the darkness that consumes us, we are reborn into beauty. My personal quote after supporting a life-changing decision for my baby sister: "It is in the face of great adversity that we grow to be the person we are meant to be".
  • Some of you may actually know me as Tarinae, my internet handle that I adopted from the World of Warcraft community, but I do love that name. You may like to know that my real name is Leila. Regardless of which name you wish to use, you probably cannot pronounce either correctly, it's okay though, it happens :)
  • In my current weight loss venture I have lost 35 pounds. A pant size, a shirt size, and more!
  • Recently, I have been gaining more and more personal growth and insight and in my own way, I feel it is a journey to find my true name. I can never deny that I have a lot of growing left to do, but it is progress that matters; the destination with no journey is worthless and my life is always a journey.
  • I am a GEEK! I love Dungeons & Dragons, Munchkin, Dominion, anime, and so much more about geek life.
  • I am an email addict! Plain and simple.
