19 This is the genealogy of Isaac, Abraham’s son. Abraham begot Isaac. 20 Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah as wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan Aram, the sister of Laban the Syrian. 21 Now Isaac pleaded with the Lord for his wife, because she was barren; and the Lord granted his plea, and Rebekah his wife conceived. 22 But the children struggled together within her; and she said, “If all is well, why am I like this?” So she went to inquire of the Lord.
23 And the Lord said to her:
“Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; One people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger.”
24 So when her days were fulfilled for her to give birth, indeed there were twins in her womb. 25 And the first came out red. He was like a hairy garment all over; so they called his name Esau. 26 Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.
27 So the boys grew. And Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field; but Jacob was a mild man, dwelling in tents. 28 And Isaac loved Esau because he ate of his game, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
Esau Sells His Birthright
29 Now Jacob cooked a stew; and Esau came in from the field, and he was weary. 30 And Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his name was called Edom.
31 But Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright as of this day.”
32 And Esau said, “Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?”
33 Then Jacob said, “Swear to me as of this day.”
So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. 34 And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright. — Genesis 25:19-34 | New King James Version (NKJV) The Holy Bible; New King James Version®. Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson. All rights reserved.

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. 6 And God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters." 7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. 9 And God said, "Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear"; and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called He Seas; and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth"; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind; and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. 14 And God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth"; and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. — Genesis 1:1-19 | Third Millennium Bible (TMB) Third Millennium Bible, New Authorized Version, Copyright 1998 by Deuel Enterprises, Inc.

1 Then turning we took the road to Bashan: and Og, king of Bashan, came out against us with all his people, and made an attack on us at Edrei. 2 And the Lord said to me, Have no fear of him: for I have given him and all his people and his land into your hands; do to him as you did to Sihon, king of the Amorites, who was ruling in Heshbon. 3 So the Lord our God gave up Og, king of Bashan, and all his people into our hands; and we overcame him so completely that all his people came to their end in the fight. 4 At that time we took all his towns; there was not one town of the sixty towns, all the country of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan, which we did not take. 5 All these towns had high walls round them with doors and locks; and in addition we took a great number of unwalled towns. 6 And we put them to the curse, every town together with men, women, and children. 7 But we took for ourselves all the cattle and the stored wealth of the towns. 8 At that time we took their land from the two kings of the Amorites on the far side of Jordan, from the valley of the Arnon to Mount Hermon; 9 (By the Sidonians, Hermon is named Sirion, and by the Amorites Shenir;) 10 All the towns of the table-land and all Gilead and Bashan as far as Salecah and Edrei, towns of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 11 (For Og, king of Bashan, was the last of all the Rephaim; his bed was made of iron; is it not in Rabbah, in the land of the children of Ammon? It was nine cubits long and four cubits wide, measured by the common cubit.) 12 And this land which we took at that time, from Aroer by the valley of the Arnon, and half the hill-country of Gilead with its towns, I gave to the Reubenites and the Gadites. 13 The rest of Gilead and all Bashan, the kingdom of Og, all the land of Argob, together with Bashan, I gave to the half-tribe of Manasseh. (This land is named the land of the Rephaim. 14 Jair, the son of Manasseh, took all the land of Argob, as far as the country of the Geshurites and the Maacathites, naming it, Bashan, Havvoth-Jair after himself, as it is to this day.) 15 And Gilead I gave to Machir. 16 And the land from Gilead to the valley of the Arnon, with the middle of the valley as a limit, as far as the river Jabbok which is the limit of the country of the children of Ammon, I gave to the Reubenites and the Gadites; 17 As well as the Arabah, with the river Jordan as their limit, from Chinnereth to the Salt Sea, under the slopes of Pisgah to the east. — Deuteronomy 3:1-17 | Bible in Basic English (BBE) The Bible in Basic English is in the public domain.

Reading ‘Frankenstein’ by Mary Shelley, the 1818 text 📖🕯🪟
This might be the BEST book I’ve read yet this year! To say it’s been a pleasant read would be misleading.. It’s terribly devastating and utterly gut-wrenching. ‘Frankenstein’ is NOT what old Hollywood made it out to be.
“Remember that I am thy creature; I ought to be thy Adam, but I am rather the fallen angel, whom thou drivest from joy for no misdeed. Everywhere I see bliss, from which I alone am irrevocably excluded. I was benevolent and good; misery made me a fiend.”
This classic follows Victor Frankenstein, a college student studying philosophy and anatomy in Germany. He excels in his studies, and obsessed over his scientific discoveries. Piece by piece, Victor constructs a monstrous body and is appalled when it comes to life. He is sicken and horrified at his attempt to play God, causing him to flee his dorm where the awakened being inhabits. The creature has a mind and a soul of its own, and now is lost in an unknown world that antagonizes his very existence.
I’m over halfway through this book and amazed by Mary Shelley’s writing. She is brilliant and genuine, and I am thrilled to have finally read her work! Hoping to read more of her books this year <3
“she was immersed in all beauty of mystery.”
i love when little kids are like "whats your THIRD favorite animal??? mines a hyloxalus poison dart frog !!!! do you want to hear 4 facts about them???" like heck yeah dude tell me your frog facts!!! /gen
i dont know why i’m obsessed with learning things about fnaf despite genuinely not caring about the franchise or characters or story 😭

I don't think reading is harder now than when I was in middle school, I just think the books were shorter back then and that's why it felt so much easier to read them quickly.
That 345 page book you read eight times between fifth and eighth grade looks like a "long" book but it's 65000 words with an immense font size and you're wondering why it's taking you longer to read a piece of classic literature™ which has 100 fewer pages but 107K words. Of course it's going to take longer.
I know this is just my own problem but I'm just going to point out here that I've started to feel a bit old.
Like... I'm really not supposed to be here and talk to people. Somehow I feel kind of... intrusive? Nosy? I don't know though... Truth is that sometimes I'm just paranoid, it's my family's treat unfortunately. My mom is, my granpa (mom's father) is an ultimate version of paranoid.
It's just that lately I've discovered that more people I know from my beloved fandom(s) the more I feel like an outright fossil.
Like I maybe should leave you people discuss things in your age group and retreat to mine..? But where is such place?
Or maybe it's just time for me to finally grow up and stop living partly in Arda of the First Age or any other fictional world.
(Breaks my heart though.)
I FINALLY GOT IT 😁📖❣️
And it arrived early 💌😊
An older couple I clean for had a really old Shakespeare book, I really wanna open it and look at at it. They have so many old books all over the place.
Only 170 pages until I’ve finished the seventh book of the year
