It's such a shame and waste for me to just hoard books..enjoy hunting them and owning them, yet, making no time to actually finish reading. Sometime, I get excited for a new magazine for half an hour, browsing for another 15 minutes, then..never actually finish reading it until the new magazine excitement happen all over again. Some other time, I stack some books and reading them (two or three books in a row) all together at the same time.. (strange, I know.. and pointless.. but, talking of guilt and desperation like a pro book hoarder!)..
It's pretty ironic actually to feel a bit guilty~ reading feels like wasting precious working time, when it actually can be enriching and refreshing. At the end, I realize: it's not about having time to read. It's more about making time to read. If I can have the time to browse the internet aimlessly..bloghopping for one or two hours, I can make time to read.. that's what I'm trying to believe.
So, this last two months of 2013, I decide to challenge myself with #ReadEveryday. It's simple. Everyday, I have to make time to read (a thin book if it will be a very busy day, a medium book if I have two hours off, a thick book when I feel a bit more ambitious, and a magazine if I had a challenging day). The genre will be varied, but, my goal is to finish reading some books and magazine I've started reading long time ago in November and read new books in December. It couldn't be that hard, right?
I've always been so obsessed in collecting moments, memories, and the unseen. It might be a bit late for me to actually find the joy of using Instagram..yet, when I start..I just can't stop! For me, it's like a keepsake for my collections of days and moments.. a visual diary I choose to share, and also.. a way for me to rediscover myself every now and then. You see.. after 5 months of marriage, my IG shows me how domestic I can be (one thing I didn't expect before the wedding day, really..).. how much I'm into dessert and obsessive baking night; and how my life revolves around my loved ones, all the hideaway places, art, more food, books, friends, nature, and a bit of fashion.
