In the show Gilmore Girls, when Rory said, “I just want to be sure that I see…something” when Headmaster Charleston asked her why she wanted to be a journalist, I really felt that.
For the last six months or so, my mind has been an anxious mess bouncing between two thoughts: I’m gonna be 22 and have decades of youthful experiences in front of me and I’m turning 22 and I can’t believe I still haven’t done this and I still don’t have that.
Why did turning 22 hold a special meaning for me?
This happens, right? We come across a quotation by Sylvia Plath, Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, Anaïs Nin, or any legendary figure in fact, and we read it and think—that’s it—that’s the truth. What they said hits some part of us that finds relatability with that thought, and coupled with their literary prowess, we take their thought as a true fact about life. We internalize it.
After challenging myself to read 30 books in May, let’s say that I calmed down a bit.
I read 3 books in July and 2 in June and I’m not unhappy with that at all! I spent all of May prioritizing reading and that was great, but since then, I’ve been focusing on other things, reading only when I feel like it and am sucked into a book.
Hi everyone! How are you all doing?
March and April were very long months for me, especially March. A lot happened in my personal life. My last semester of college is over and I have my final exams in May. I didn’t read that much in the last two months and among the books that I did read, many were for college. The highlights were the lighthearted romance books I read from this list that got me through these tough months.
Hi everyone! So, I’m quite new to the world of Korean dramas, Her Private Life being only the third one that I’ve watched. But I can honestly say that I’m firmly invested in this wonderful world now, thanks to my friend Hargun (who has some amazing posts on k-dramas on her newly launched blog – do check it out!) who loves all things Korean.
Hey everyone! Enough has been said about how 2020 was so I’ll spare you the obvious. Reading-wise, I had a pretty good year. My reading list for college was amazing this year and some of those books turned out to be my best read. I had the opportunity of reviewing many amazing books by debut/indie authors. Perhaps the achievement I’m most proud of and grateful for is kick-starting my career as an editor.
