Letter writing is the only device for combining solitude with good company.
— Lord Byron 

The struggle of having family/friends around the world and trying to figure out the right amount of postage for a letter. Let me tell you, it’s a right ol’ bitch! 

My roommates have already begun discussing Halloween costume ideas and so I thought I should probably start thinking what I want to go as. I haven’t worn a costume (or gone out for the holiday) in like four years so I feel a bit rusty at coming up with ideas. But so far I have thought up Rosie the Riveter or a 1940s look (I just want to wear victory rolls… okay?), or dressing as some fairy or floral goddess (?) so I can wear a flower crown. What do ya’ll think? I just want to look pretty for the holiday…. suggestions?

Harvard Uni has a open collection of diaries, journals, and memoirs by women from 1800-1930. So excited to peruse the site while I try to find a topic or individual I want to research for my Work in America history class. Looking for a fantastic primary source to work with which will further my understanding of what life was for a collective or singular women in history.

Do you ever suddenly think about a book from your childhood yet you cannot remember all the exact details or the author or name? I’ve been searching for the last half hour for a book my parents used to read to me as a child. I believe that it took place in Paris (although this may be wrong), it was a picture book with a fair amount of text, it was about a daughter recounting her childhood (in particular how she wishes she could see [or dance with] her father again), and I believe it may have been based off of a song. This is so very little to go on, but does anyone even have a clue which book it might be?
