Review: Knight's Tale

Knight's Tale Knight's Tale by Geoffrey Chaucer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Interesting tale of love, chivalry, honor, and Greek Gods interfering. I found it neat how it all works out with Palamon getting Emily in the end, though Arcite wins the joust. In class, we discussed how Palamon is a symbol of the contemplative life and Arcite is a symbol of the active life, a tie-in with previous book we read, The Cloud of Unknowing: With the Book of Privy Counsel.

Review: Prologue to Canterbury Tales

Prologue to Canterbury Tales Prologue to Canterbury Tales by Chaucer Geoffrey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting. My literature teacher discussed the hidden meanings and astrology in the prologue which I found very facinating.

Review: The Man Of Law's Tale

The Man Of Law's Tale The Man Of Law's Tale by Geoffrey Chaucer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of the best stories from Canterbury Tales and one my my favorites. (I haven't read the whole of Canterbury Tales, because for Literature class we were just supposed to pick a story to present to the class.)

Long Time, No See!

Hello readers!

Oh my goodness, my last actual post was in July! No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. :) Here's a quick summary of what I've been doing.

July: I went repelling with CAP and later went to the Ohio Wing Encampment. I had an awesome time at both. Follow +CAP Cadet's collection Civil Air Patrol for more on that.

And just side note, +CAP Cadet  and +Catherine T. Mohs are the one and same person, me! The +CAP Cadet was my first email and +Catherine T. Mohs is my current email that I use more often. I also switched my blog name from theprincessofrandomness.blogspot.com to catherinetmohs.blogspot.com.

August: I was gone all August. Where was I? Beautiful, wonderful, South Korea! Visiting, relatives, going places, and having lots of fun. My cousin, +I Dont know, whom I got to know really well, will tell you that I had fun. :p I miss all my family already. Also, my grandpa passed away while we were there. It was a blessing in disguise that we were in Korea when it happened. So, please keep him and my family in your prayers.

September: A week after I got back from Korea, BAM! Back into school. trying to get over the culture/time change, juggling a full school schedule (I'm a junior now), and prepping for the PSAT. I had my hands quite full. It was a stressful first three weeks, but I've got things under control now. I hope. :D

So here, I am now. I hope to write more often, but I'll have to see how things go. Signing off for now! Have a beautiful day everyone!

Review: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondō
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting read, but definitely not for everybody. There are some concepts in this book that I agree with and will use, but then there are some ideas she has that work better for small Japanese houses and I wouldn't even dream of using.
