On sad days, I feel write-y and I hope no one reads what I write (even though I put it out publicly) or, if you're here, reading this, I hope you don't judge me for it. DEPRESSION! Now that I have your attention/have managed to turn you away, let's talk about the absence of happiness … Continue reading PG 13 content
Home is a foreign place Attempt at working on my thesis not 2. We did a funny shitpost about books and reading so I guess it must be either time to talk about fandom or super poignant stuff (work through those issues). (yay. My commentary is much genius) (I don't know. I just wanted to … Continue reading yay. Procrastination (Exhibit B)
I have a pretty major review for my final project next week. So obviously I'm doing other stuff. yay. (huehue. I can totally do this. SUPERCONFIDENCE. and caffeine) Let's talk about ruining books by writing things in them. Or as the intellectuals will tell you (pummel you over the head with) annotations. And sure, I … Continue reading Procrastination (exhibit A)
I probably wouldn't choose this quote to start talking about the book I'm going to be talking about, but here we are. (And also, that is very poignant advice so we might as well go with it). If you aren't familiar (and once I tell you what book we are talking about, you should have … Continue reading Let us be elegant or die!
Once I'm dressed, I open my closetRummage through the shades of sameness.Which go with all my other clothes ---on most days. I find one in the back, crumpled upI haven't seen it in a while.Its mustiness suffocates me;I keep it for another day,Only because its beige fits stillI try one on that makes me look … Continue reading Which one will it be today?
Yes haha. I made the cringiest New Years joke you could possibly make. But it is the last 50ish hours before the Earth does what it has been doing for the last 4.543 billion years. The internet is full to the brim with end of year lists and posts about how 2018 was the literal worst. … Continue reading See you next year
I took too long to read this book. Far too long. Had I read it in a month (like I normally do with most college work) I may have enjoyed it more. Or maybe, the reason I ended up liking it so much is because I read it this slowly, coming back to it in … Continue reading Am I still dreaming? A review of Number9Dream by David Mitchell
You hit shuffle on your playlist. You hear a familiar tune, but you can't quite place it yet. You haven't heard this song in ages, not since you were 12, or 14, or maybe it was 16. And you're smiling, because it reminds you of when you first heard the song, all those years ago … Continue reading All that we are will remain in the past
To the people who will read this (and apparently there's quite a few now) Please. Turn away. There's no light-hearted talk of books or TV here today, no heartfelt scrawl about a difficult day. All there is is apathy, and weariness, at a month gone horribly wrong. I've talked about my bad days before, I've … Continue reading tired
Lol JK. It's not really an ode (like I'm talented enough to write one of those!) However...I do want to talk about all the books that I am currently "reading" and am yet to read. So, a few days ago I came across this article which argued that having more books than I had time … Continue reading An ode to the books on my nightstand
