I sat through a reading of Today in the Taxi from the author today and I came to the conclusion that I need to read this with my own eyes as well. He was very articulate and answered questions beautifully.

Hi #romance! I know you love reading and writing novels - but I'm curious to know... Do you love playing romance visual novels/otome games?

i was lamenting that my Ultra Extra Fine nib was not fine enough. i have discovered the magic of writing with the nib upside down 🙏

another life update:

i have always admired the work of librarians. my original plan for life was to become a librarian. for a couple of reasons i chose to go into software development instead.

i really regret it. while i do like coding (and like the money that comes with it), i feel like it should have just been a hobby that stayed a hobby.

in the fall i'm going to go back to school to get a BA and after that, my MLIS.

my mom texts me about what my cat is doing when i'm at work, it's very cute

You can just be a girl if you want. It’s okay. Or a boy, or something else, or no gender at all. You’re not too old, or too young, or too much, or not enough, or trespassing, or appropriating, or causing trouble. It’s okay. Really.

But the important thing is: do what you want, not what you think you’re allowed. Find the joy and follow that. You can experiment and you can change your mind. That’s okay too.


idk if i believe in it but i like to have fun with the idea of quantum immortality. every time i have a near death experience im just like, "nice, i just created another timeline"

“The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist; a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain.”

― Ursula K. LeGuin

spent the day slowly moving stuff from my condo to my parents and dealing with admin things. hopefully i can finally relax and do some reading 📚

living alone has been a good experience. i will definitely miss it. but sometimes life throws other priorities at you.

life update: i will be moving back in with my parents once my lease ends. technically, i have already been living with my parents for about a month now but i've been waiting out my lease.

it's mostly because of financial reasons and because my parents are getting to that stage of life where they cannot work and need an extra pair of hands around the house. i also just want to be there for my parents as well.

my Bookwyrm, Goodreads AND my written reading logs are all horribly out of date. the plan for this morning is to update them until my family wakes up
