It’s 6pm and since Friday night, I have yet to study. I’m seriously getting lazier by the minute. And yet, I have dreams that I won’t be able to achieve if I’m being such a sloth.
I’m way too lazy to type the summary here when it’s easily available on the internet. Sometimes when I read reviews of books on Goodreads, I see everyone start off their review with the summary and then sharing their thoughts, which is the part that I wanna know – whether people love or hate the book. I don’t need thousands of people telling me the summary, it’s the first thing I read on Goodreads before I scroll to the reviews section.
So back to what I wanted to share.. I finished this book on my way home from work 2 days ago and the ending was beautiful. I absolutely adore these two beautiful women – Isabelle, who is rash, rebellious and loyal to her country and people; Vianne, who just wants to protect her family even if she needs to keep her head down. I felt like I embarked on this journey of pain, sadness and grief with them and mind you, I teared up at the end. Teared up in the bus. During peak hour when there were so many people. Uh huh..
That’s one book down and I’m still deciding which book I should go for next!
I’ve created another account for myself on Instagram. I’m getting depressed by the day, comparing myself to people around me (well, technically, they’re not around me anymore). Being on Instagram to keep up with the latest jokes, celebrity news and anything to take my mind off things, yet seeing “updates” from the people I follow just makes it hard for me. But I still wanna be on it!
The best solution to this problem is that I create another account and get updates and follow accounts that I want to. No seeing those happy relationship posts or which cafe is trending now in KL or friends getting together on a Friday night. None of this includes me so why bother.
But of course, if it’s snowing out there or having a picnic in Governor’s Island, yup, that’s going on my story in my original account.
Because Instagram/social media is here for us to show the world that we’re happy. Even though deep down inside, we’re not.
