WARNING – this will be long. If you intend to read it all, I suggest you go get yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee 😉
Despite what people might think when reading my blog, I’m actually not a hair-and-makeup kind of girl. Sure, I like playing around with makeup, but that’s mainly because I’ve always been fascinating by everything that can be created and altered – paintings, drawings, collages, rearranging the furniture in the living room… It doesn’t really matter what it is, I just see most things as a blank canvas that I can’t leave untouched.
I definitely can leave my face untouched, I actually like the way I look most of the time. Yes, I definitely feel ugly and disgusting at times, but most of us do. But for most of the time, I like my face. I mean, it’s my face, you know? It’s hard not to like it after so many years 😉 Hell, I once went to the store in my husbands t-shirt and boxers – and nothing else. Because that’s how little I care about people’s opinions. But after getting sick, I started feeling really ugly and like I just HAD to wear make-up, which is why I ended up with owning so much.
I also ended up with a lot of unread books, which is what my point of this (already long) post is. I’m not an omg-my-nail-broke kind of girl. I’m the I’ll-just-read-one-more-chapter-oh-look-it’s-morning kind of girl. Or well, I was. Being sick takes its toll on you and everything fun you used to do just goes straight out the window when you need help to just sit up. Luckily, I’ve been feeling better and better lately, and although still sick, I can do things again and I feel like doing them, most of all. I wear out quickly and I have a son who demands a lot of attention, but I still manage to do a little work in my Wreck This Journal or, occasionally, read.
Yesterday I did what I always do – read Harry Potter. I’ve read the first four books many more times than I think any of your would ever guess 😉 (maybe I should make it a giveaway or something – the one who guesses, wins). I won’t tell you since it sounds like bragging, but I really love Harry Potter like a crazy person. The 5th I’ve only read twice and the 6th once, but it came out in the middle of exams and moving out for me to focus on books. This of course made me think that I should probably start reading some more. I miss it. A lot, even. When you usually read 5-6 books a week, reading two books in two years is cause for crying. I’m just having so many issues with deciding what to read or when to do it, that I can’t seem to get anywhere. So I choose Harry Potter, like I always do.
I have a Goodreads account (which I haven’t used for ages) which I’m thinking about trying to remember again. I think it’ a nice way of keeping track of your book and what you’ve read and want to read. Plus, I like buying new books and using the scanner because I’m a child 😀 Feel free to add me if you wish.
Also, I should really get my Wreck This Journal uploaded soon – it’s not finished yet but 90% of the book is done and it would be fun to show you guys.
How often do you read? What are your favorite books – or on your “to read” list? I could always use some inspiration 😉If you need anything, write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
