    ...Семь дней тому назад, Вздохнувши, я прости сказала миру, Но душно там, и я пробралась в сад Взглянуть на звезды и потрогать лиру.

    Анна Ахматова, “Ночью...” (отрывок), 1918 г.

    "Maybe we're all full of an empty plain but then with every memorable moment, good and bad, there's another tree planted. Then another then another then another. And maybe we convince ourselves that, as we become increasingly tangled in the mass of trees and divots that are us, life is about looking for the clearing, the bit where all of it breaks. But maybe that's the secret. Maybe the secret is that it never breaks. Not really. It never breaks, and the only think that's really gratifying is pressing the bark against your face and delighting in the thought that this is me, and this is real, and this is true. Just lying down in the undergrowth, in a wood made of all of you, of every joy and every terror, and saying this is me, and this, and this. The difference between feeling lost and feeling fine isn't a change in circumstances, it's a change in behavior."

    - "The Things We Don't See", Savannah Brown

    Next I read Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere.

    I am sad to say…I didn’t really enjoy this. I REALLY WANTED TO. I was pretty hyped up with all the reviews but the plot of the book couldn’t hold up my expectations (too predictable). The world building is cool though. I thought I had attempted to read this book something like 10 years ago but it was completely unfamiliar until I got to the floating night market bit and I was like oh I remember this!! Perhaps the story is not my cup of tea…although I really enjoyed How the Marquis Got His Coat Back! It was a very fun read, I liked it much more than the main novel, surprisingly. Also! This is the first hard copy book that I’ve finished reading in a while so there’s that.

    #i read this #neverwhere #I promise I actually liked the next book I read #currently wondering if I should be writing all these on goodreads for proper record instead tho….

    It’s hard selling my friends on Destiny because it’s currently at a state of “Well, you just Had To Be There I guess”

    #not D1 tho that’s enjoyable with its campaigns and DLC #but getting a D1 player caught up into D2 will take days of watching d2 trailers and let’s plays and reading lore to get the slightest clue #of what’s happening currently #it’s very TV show like with each ep dropping weekly #but after the season of the shows over they delete the past couple seasons so you’d have to #watch let’s play to catch up #Destiny 2

    #ps seriously do not feel you have to read it #I get it #I am suuuuper fucking picky with fic myself and often abandon stuff #live your life #ladybug emoji#askbox #honestly kind of wish I had my current writing skills when I started #it would likely be a much better story #but it feels like betrayal to rewrite what has already been done #if that makes sense

    I literally can’t stop reading. I find myself diving into fantasy worlds as an escape. I finish one book and immediately pick up another.

    Man my day has been just horrible. Other than having a pretty nice job interview mostly everything else has just sucked.

    Maybe it hasnt sucked idk but it really feels like it rip

    #vent #kohga has been a bad boy #i accidently dropped an entire bottle of fabric softener and it broke while i was trying to clean up after Kohga #and in general i just feel like shit about my current situation other than kohga and all of that. #oh and i just have been struggling with general depression issues #and i cant help but feel guilty as well for like... getting mad at Kohga when he does some bullshit #and i also feel like i am a failure and i feel guilty for all my struggles because i feel like kohga doesnt deserve it #which he doesnt but i also put him so far ahead of my own needs so i dont think he really notices... #and i am scsred about asking mom or anyone else in my family for help because i barely even want to admit to myself that i have issues atm #why am i even whiting this #you peobably shouldnt be reading this #dont worry about me i will be fine #i always end up fine #somehow
