Welcome to Global Interests, a place where I share details about every post, series, update, and happening on 12 and Beyond.  Feel free to browse around, and be sure to check out this month’s post calendar (found on the sidebar) to find out when each post releases.

Thank you for visiting 12 and Beyond!

French Connection

New French Connection Logo

French Connection has been a series from the very beginning: posts in which I share my knowledge of the French language with you. Since the beginning of 7th grade, I’ve been taking French at school, and I share my knowledge from class with you in each edition of French Connection. Whether it be vocabulary, verb conjugations, or French culture, you can find it here. You can also study the information you’ve learned through my Quizlet account, which you can access from the “Quizlet” page above. French Connection is not meant to be used as a way to learn French, only to present you with extra knowledge that I’ve learned about the language. See this month’s post calendar to find out when the next edition releases!

Hooked On Books | Book Reviews

New Hooked On Books Logo.png

Every so often, I release a book review for one of my favorite reads. In my book reviews, I go in-depth with each book and discuss my opinions and some pros and cons that I found while reading. I discuss some of the most monumental parts – and others that I found important – of each book, and thus with each review I do tend to spoil, well, the entire book- so beware! Check out the category “Book Reviews” in the sidebar for a complete collection of book reviews from 12 and Beyond.

Word Wise

Unlike most of my other posts, this series releases daily only on a page. Visit here (the Word Wise page) to access a new vocabulary word, every day. This year, my focus is on providing advanced vocabulary words that you can use in your daily conversations. Also, if you would like to view words from previous years, feel free to visit the “Word Wise” category found in the sidebar.

In Tune

New In Tune Logo

Music is something that defines me. Every other week, I select a song from my Apple Music listening that has moved me in a unique way and highlight it in a special biweekly post. I try to highlight a variety of songs, from pop music to my nighttime Soothing Waters radio. Discover a new song by browsing through the “In Tune” category, or look out for a new edition every other Tuesday!

When I release something outside of my normal posts, it could be about anything.  These posts can range from personal posts, writing pieces, to my views about the world around me. Look out for the logo on the left on the post calendar (found in the sidebar) to find out when a special edition will release!
