Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week they want us to talk about ourselves … ten whole new facts about me … that’s not going to be easy, but here we go!
I don’t have Pokemon Go
I feel like that’s the most important topic at the moment and I also know that you are probably being like “Whaaaat?” and I get it. How did I escape the frenzy? Well, it’s not out in my country yet, so I am not saying I will never get it, but I can’t right now. But even after that, I would probably only be able to play it outside 2 days of the month, because by then I’d be all out of mobile data. How do people just run around all month long with that?
When I was younger I preferred big books …
I obviously don’t anymore or what else would this statement be about? With my busy reading schedule and all the new releases and sequels and whatnot, I just start groaning whenever a book is more than 350 pages long. I am not saying that long books are bad, not at all! Yet, I can’t help but want to get through it quickly, even when I adore a story.
I’m obsessed with obsessing
Whenever I truly like something, I am ALL IN! Mostly I can’t stop thinking about it and then I need to express that somehow. I have been known to crochet or sow figures that looked like characters from shows. Or I just paint them … that’s also an option, although not one I have been using lately. Here’s a look at my little Sherlock:
I don’t use bookmarks
I like how they look and I would definitely collect them, but I don’t like to use them while reading. I much prefer post its or index cards, because then I can randomly take notes (of the book or something else entirely).
Love/Hate relationship with Hardcovers
I LOVE how hardcovers look, but lets face it, they are super impractical to take to work or wherever else you need to go. They are heavy, don’t tend to be very flexible and I am like immensely scared to destroy their beauty somehow. Also, major con is that they are way more expensive than paperbacks. Still, I am kind of double happy whenever I do receive a hardcover.
If I could meet any author …
… who wouldn’t have guessed that it’d be Pierce Brown? I am so very predictable in that regard. However, all my fangirling aside, if for whatever unrealistic reason (since this is just a dream scenario anyway), he wouldn’t be available, I’d like to meet either Morgan Matson, Cassandra Clare, Tahereh Mafi, Ransom Riggs, Rainbow Rowell, Sarah J Maas, David Levithan or John Green … Did I mention that I was also really bad at making decisions? They all seem like such cool people, but sometimes I am not even sure Pierce is real … just look at him!
I want to be a writer, but …
… but I suck at staying consequent when it comes to writing and editing. It’s not even that I doubt my skills (well, only half the time), but TIME! BRAIN CELLS! I don’t seem to have those very crucial things. I don’t know how others do it. I seem to have no organisational skills whatsoever when it comes to my private life.
I love getting mail!
Any kind of mail! (Except for bills and advertisement) My close friends know this and remember to send me postcards or letters whenever they are away. I tried to bombard my American friends with them after leaving from my exchange semester, but I never really got anything back. People either aren’t patient enough or they don’t want to pay for the 2 dollar stamp … I don’t know and I am not even saying that I am very good at writing letters. But man, do I love to receive it and therefore I try.
I collect notebooks
I love them so much! They are always so pretty and then I HAVE TO HAVE THEM! But … I am always scared of writing in them, because what if I don’t like what I wrote and then the notebook is messed up? However, I do have a Little Prince journal and a TARDIS dream journal (because people will confirm that I have the weirdest dreams).
I never expected to love blogging so much!
This may sound stupid and like I am running out of ideas … which I am, but lets not stray from the topic. I started blogging and in my mind I was only going to do it for a couple of weeks or months max and now we are here, three years later and I can’t even imagine life without it. Sure, sometimes there is the not so nice pressure, but generally I just love it and most of all because of the people I met here. I talk to so many of you on a daily basis and not just about books either, but about life happening. It’s such a comfort to have you all! ❤
