Hope. I try to fill myself with hope every single day, along with wonder, determination, and other important things.

In April 2009, in honor of the theme of hope at readergirlz, Hope, I published a series of posts in which I asked various people:

What's your definition of "hope?"
What makes you hopeful?


I have posted their answers at both my blog, Bildungsroman, and the readergirlz blog.
