Get your Greek on!

"If my life is going to mean anything, I have to live it myself."
- Rick Riordian, "The Lightning Thief"

No high school curriculum is complete without a large chunk of Greek mythology. Why, why? Tell them that it's human nature. These stories are AMAZING, even Simon Cowell would say they're "currunt". The appeal of how gods came into being and how heroes battled monsters is still relevant today. I love how immortal gods seem down-to-earth human because they battle with the same things as we do, like sibling rivalry, love, revenge etc. The Illiad and The Odyssey are good places to start, but there's also the Percy Jackson and The Olympians series which I'm currently obsessing over! Vampires are so dead.

In other news, Bend & Snap is featured in this month's Belle de Jour Gazette, the online newsletter for the cash cow planners. Yehey! Meanwhile, I'm trying to brace myself for another looming Monday with a slew of errands, appointments and the cliched blues.

One very grande, very strong, very caramelly latte please.

Goodnight, world!
Love, Risa
