Welcome to my blog, I post book related stuff, advice, and a few other random things I come across. I live in the United States and I’m out of High School. My name is Athena, but I’m not actually greek. I have a dog named Zeus who is currently around eleven years old.
I love pets and I plan on becoming a vet tech once I get out of college. I also hope to have more pets when I get older, but I don’t plan on having more than I can handle. I’ve been around dogs all my life and I used to have cats when I was younger. I ride horses too every once in a while. I haven’t had any snakes or birds, but I’ve handled them before and I like both of them! I’ve had fish for a few years, I currently have two females betas -ones a koi and I think she’s super pretty. I used to have guppies, but they breed so fast that they began to inbreed before I had time to get more so they all become infertile and passed away a while ago.
I’ve read plenty of books over the years and I plan to read at least ten this year. I love crime novels and thrillers. I used to read romance when I first started reading outside of school, but lately I’ve moved away from that. I also like books about animals and prehistoric life, such as A Dog’s Purpose and The Clan of the Cave Bear.
I like having discussions with people about books and I hope that soon there will be plenty of discussions on the blog.
Update November 2018:
So…. I’ve stopped going to college, I realized that getting a job as a vet tech is going to be a lot harder than I thought and the money just isn’t worth it. My dog passed away a few months ago and its still kind of hard on me. If I’m being completely honest I’m not sure who I want to be. Sometimes I think about my future and my mind just goes everywhere. Will I ever get my own house? Will I ever have a better paying job? Will I have to go back to college? Will I ever be somebody?
I think I just need to focus on one thing, but I just don’t want to miss a better opportunity. I think its about time I used this blog to be real. Sometimes I’ve written things to make myself sound enthusiastic, but I’m really not. I write it hoping that afterwards I will be, but that just hasn’t happened yet. I don’t know, maybe I have a lot more things to work through than I originally thought I did.
Update February 2019
I’m excited to announce that I’ve found a job where I’m able to sustain myself. I love it because the hours are consistent and it gives me plenty of time to write without feeling tired. I look forward to writing more and reading writing the other people here on wordpress have. Thank you guys so much for the support you’ve given over that past few years. 🙂

[ Smiles ] Lovely! I am all for reading about book!
I LOVE your honesty on this page. It’s hard when you realise your dream job is not going to work out (for whatever reason) and it’s so easy to put a happy face on blogging and the attached social media. I think what you’re doing with your updates is great, and I’m looking forward to reading some of your other posts! 😀
Thank you so much!
