Such rainy days remind me of the time we were in school and school used to randomly call a holiday mid week for the rain. The pure joy and excitement we used to feel that time will never match with any other feelings. I miss those times of being innocent.
With this nostalgic feeling, Good morning 💝
I have failed to understand the battle between fiction and non-fiction because being a fiction fan myself I do understand the importance of reading non-fiction as well. While non-fiction is categorized as being closer to reality, I've read many a fiction ones that seem not far at all from the sphere of reality. On one hand there's brilliance in the form Murakami and Kafka, on the other hand there's heartbreaking beauty in Paul Kalanithi's and Anne Frank's life tale. What you read is who you are, that's all I know.
What's the worst thing that's ever happened to one of your books?
This is my last Northanger Abbey pic! 😢 Fun fact: I was sitting on the frame of a shipwreck high over the beach when I took this one! And as you can see, I had a little disaster on the page corners...my water shoes leaked in my bag and got the book all wet...it dried but it still isn't the same 😪

#ourclassicsummer : Mrs. Dalloway: difficult to read. I really struggled getting through War and Peace...even though it was on audio! I also struggle with Shakespeare; even though I generally don't have trouble with old-fashioned wording or anything, Shakespeare is SO HARD. And War and Peace is just sooo long. What book have you struggled to read?
I'm temporarily emerging from my post-chemo/subluxed spine funk, to say: There are very few things that would warrant the embarrassment of looking at my 2011 twitter account. The idea that for 22million of us could loose our healthcare is one of those things. Guys, I tweeted at my senators because there is a healthcare vote TOMMOROW and I can't face the results knowing I could have done the slightest bit more. I'm just as pessimistic about this whole democracy thing as the next millennial in line, but as a patient, as a caregiver, and as a future doctor, I can't find it in me to be apathetic about people's lives. Please, please, please, contact your senators, tell them to #voteno
