Getting to Know Phi Alpha Pi: Meet Lydia

Lydia Bennet is one of the most iconic silly-girls in all of literature. I imagine she could fit so many roles in modern romance stories.

30 Days of Wikipedia: January Wrap-up

I know, I was suppose to do this post over a week ago.  I was busy being sick and everything got thrown off.  My 30 days of editing Wikipedia are over.  It was far more difficult this year to do just 30 days than it was last year to do 100.  I think it wasRead more
