  1. Ahh that sounds so lovely. I like the idea of teaching, but could not do it. I think it's a vocation. Go and enjoy your holiday!
  2. I felt bad about how quickly I went from caring for two sick dogs (awake at 3am, awake at 6am, permanently on edge and worried about who was home to look after them when I was working, clearing vomit off the floor, cleaning the garden, organising medications, dealing with family who didn't pull their weight, nearly had a nervous breakdown from all of the above) to sleeping in and not missing all the shit. I felt so guilty for being grateful for not worrying. I promise you're not a terrible person. When someone's been ill, it's a relief for everyone when the burden of care is lifted. Enjoy your time! You might find it hits you at a random time. Grief is weird. It's not a straight line, it's a squiggle.
  3. Ayyyy enjoy! I finished The Well of Ascension this morning. It's part of the Mistborn series; I really liked the first novel but this one had a bit of middle book syndrome. I reckon I'll give the next (final?) book a go, though.
  4. Oh my goodness I just melted a bit. Does this site still have emojis? 🥰 I am still on Lolita, but I took a lil break to read half of Maggie Stiefvater's bibliography plus her newest, Mister Impossible, which I think will haunt my bones until I am 80. Not sure how I feel about that. That's a lie, I love her work. Yes to the audiobook voice thing! I looked up voice actors/narrators for a potential audiobook for The Princess and the Dragon, funnily. Amazon/Audible has this bank of voice samples you can choose and filter through, like 'British Northern Irish accent,' 'flirtatious vocal style,' 'erotica genre.' Quite weird but a fun research experience.
  5. Hahaha that is Eurovision in a nutshell. Does the best singer get through? No? Does the most dramatic? ABSOLUTELY
  6. I haven't seen it at all! I am so bad at following TV. I did make a bingo/drinking game a few years ago that my friends and I used when we had a Eurovision party, but I've missed the last couple of years (the one before the pandemic? I don't even know). I'll have to catch it, it's bonkers.
  7. It's really normal to feel normal for a bit, then hate yourself for feeling normal, and feel weird again. But yeah, you do realise who the great people are when you experience a bereavement. It's a good litmus test for who's in it for the long haul, friendship-wise.
  8. Thank you! I am feeling a bit more human today. Not a lot more, but I'll take it. I hope you're doing okay, Sonia.
  9. That's so interesting - I've never tried an audio book but am planning to with the Iliad because I've tried reading that and it just... didn't happen. Reading it turned out to be a good cure for insomnia. Nodded right off. I think having it narrated would help me keep track. It's all about what works for you and your brain, though. Some stories will work better in certain formats than others for different people. Ahh I hope you like TRC! I'm doing a reread at the moment - Lolita needed a little holiday - and it's like having a hug from a friend.
  10. Thank you! I am so tired ahaha. And also stressing about all the adult life and money stuff I'd put off when I was working on the final parts of the diploma. Does anyone want to buy some books and/or help me organise some cupboards?!
  11. Cough cough I handed in my final assignment (It might not be finished, I might have to resubmit work but... I get some time off wooo)
  12. That sounds like a hug in a book. Jane Austen is just so... cosy. Still on Lolita. It's still gross.
  13. Okay if you read the Shiver series you have to read Maggie's other work. Its a rule. Also everything that comes after Shiver is so, so much better in so many ways. I'm reading Lolita and... it's not something I'm going to forget any time soon. It's slow going, a bit because my brain is full from college and a bit because it is frequently disgusting. Brinn, do you read/listen to audiobooks? You might find them easier to focus on than printed words/ebooks?
  14. Ahaha it's terrifying to get a message from someone who seems to know you, but you have absolutely no idea who they are
