What’s something that you wish you knew earlier in life, that would have saved you time and heartache and energy?
πŸ“š
#ad with the valentine’s day getting closer, i think we should remember that it is ourselves who we should love before loving anyone else, and this comes from someone who used to believe that only by hating yourself could you change the things that you hate about yourself. i have it written in my diary and it made me sad when i read it recently, sad for the person that i used to be, even though it was that person who was strong enough to fight through it and see the light. i wish i knew then what i know now – about other people, about myself, and about the things that really matter.
πŸ“š
that’s why i chose this particular t-shirt from @redbubble. there’s a social pressure when v day comes along to express your love and it is always focused on your romantic interest. and while this is ok, we shouldn’t forget about ourselves and about the fact that if we don’t love ourselves, all the love in the world doesn’t matter. i put a link in my bio for you to check the other things that i got from #redbubble (this one, if it’s easier for you: rdbl.co/elizabethsagan-v19). you can use code v19-elizabeth for 15% off your entire redbubble order, good from january 15th to march 29th. feel free to check the rest of their stuff too, as they collaborate with artists from around the world to create all kinds of nerdy, weird, geeky and fandomish stuff.

What's something that pisses you off?
πŸ“š
the bookshop where i used to write changed its policy and now they are super strict when it comes to food/drinks that you bring from outside and it saddens me because if i am to stay here 10 hours per day i can't only buy their stuff because i'd go broke. okok, i understand the policy, i'm not bitc*ing about capitalism, but i would like to find a nice place where i could stay and write and eat without being forced to buy only from them. i would buy from them to be nice, but not all the food and drinks that i need for a whole day. there's a cafe in my city where you only pay the time that you spend there - it was like $2 per hour last time when i went there, but that means $20 per day and that means $100 per 5 days and it adds up, man. first world problems, right?

Who would win if aelin would fight feyre? (possible spoilers in the comments for those who haven't read koa).
πŸ“š
i'm reading the fork, the witch and the worm by c. paolini. it's cute. i hope i'll finish it tomorrow cause it's basically james' christmas gift so i can't just take it with me back home :))
πŸ“š
sometimes i have so many things to write in the caption that i'm almost hitting the character limit and i'm wondering if people are really reading my long a*s captions. sometimes i don't have. sometimes i'm feeling like an anxious worm that's all over the place and just wants to hide under the blanket. this is one of those days. maybe it's the weather.
πŸ“š
this is a re-creation of a pic that i took months ago but never posted because i didn't like how it turned out. now i like it.

Caption this pic. make it funny. my favs will get a shoutout.
πŸ“š
sometimes i ask myself why do i read. why do i love it so much. why do i feel the need to stare at symbols on paper and hallucinate. if you erase the book from the image of someone reading, what's left is a human standing motionless, his eyes moving constantly from left to right. idk man, weird. it's not about getting more clever or learning how to use words better. that comes after. the main reason is the story. when i went to law school i thought it would be easy peasy because i knew i liked reading. but when a book doesn't offer me a story i stop enjoying reading. but why do i feel the need to know more stories than the real world has to offer?
πŸ“š
because that's how it is :)) but sometimes i'm thinking about it and i'm thinking it's so weird. like when you're looking at a random word that suddenly looks and feels strange. i had a moment like this recently with get. get. did get always look like this? :))

What fantastic creature would you like to exist in the real world?
πŸ“š
for this pic i partnered up (#ad) with the guys at @redbubble who sent me this cute t-shirt that depicts my relationship status. did you know that in the middle ages people believed that they could lure unicors by using maidens as a bait? it worked so well that the unicorns became extinct. don't you believe me? have you seen any unicorns lately? joking aside (even though the first part is totally true, just look it up), if you want to check the other things that redbubble sent me to celebrate the upcoming valentine's day (insert sad music), you can check this link rdbl.co/elizabethsagan-v19 (it's also in my bio if you find it easier) and you can use code v19-elizabeth for 15% off your entire redbubble order, good from january 15th to march 29th. feel free to check the rest of their stuff too, as they collaborate with artist from around the world to create all kinds of nerdy, weird, geeky and fandomish stuff.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how f***ed would you be if you'd suddenly wake up inside the book that you're reading?
πŸ“š
i wanted to post for the past 2 days, but i went out on friday (which always comes as a surprise for me) and on saturday i had a 4.5 hours long phone conversation that got me out of a bad mood. i still have no laptop :)) and i'm halfway through the eye of the world and i realise this is not sustainable. i have to read something else between the wot books or else i'll get tired of it, not because it's not good (it is), but because at this pace i'll finish the series in june and won't read anything else for the first half of 2019.
πŸ“š
anyway, i'm super unproductive lately and it's killing me. gotta go back on the track. and i failed giving up coffee (again), because i can't. i was feeling terrible and i wasn't productive!
πŸ“š
meanwhile, we got the second snow of the year. and i wonder if it's because i had this pic ready.

What the best book/series that you've read? the absolute best.
πŸ“š
so you know i'm reading wheel of time. i don't love it. i respect it. i respect and admire the fact that rj didn't give an eff when he wrote it. do you know how it feels? it feels like a retired old man with nothing else to do but a story to tell sat down at his desk one day and started to write what has probably been on his mind for the past 30 years. did he give an eff if the story started too slowly and the readers might get bored? no. he wrote as if he never planned to publish it, as if he was free of all the fear that comes with writing a book, because it feels like he wrote it for himself. he took his time to show us everything. and it feels great. it's really, really great. it's not my jam, not anymore, but it's great.

What's something that you're proud of doing?
πŸ“š
so yesterday i was asked what i'm proud of doing and i said i'm proud that i learned to love and accept myself. well, another thing that i'm proud of is being part of the @savedbythepage anthology by @jdnetto, an anthology created by readers like you and me who wrote about how they were "saved" by books. well, after reading the book i must honestly say that i was ashamed of my little story. compared to other stories that i've read, mine was unworthy, dull and dry. there were some personal stories that truly shocked me. but even so, i'm proud i had my part in it. so, well, read it, but don't read it for my story πŸ˜… there are way better stories out there.
πŸ“š
but to summarise, i talked about how i forced myself not to read fiction anymore, because i was told it's useless. and i tried to convince myself i was going to read "serious" books, but i never did. so for a few years i basically stopped reading. how s****d is that?! and then james and i met in college and i finally started reading again because of him. he made me read percy jackson. and then some other books. thanks m... damn, sarah j. maas, how can i use the word "mate" now???

What's your first read in 2019?
πŸ“š
eeeh, happy new year and all that! my first read of this year will be the wheel of time series. i've read the first 3 books many many years ago. i dnfed the 4th one because i was dealing with a huge reading slump and because my copy of the book was off-putting: the quality of the pages s****d and the spine was rock hard (when you have a 1000 pages book that's not good). i pondered whether i should start with the 4th one or re-read (you know i don't like re-reading) and chose the latter. now i'm 150 pages into eye of the world and i'm loving it (kinda - we'll speak about this later)! i love when an author takes his time with the worldbuilding. for me, that speaks passion. it feels as if he isn't writing for the readers, but for himself, as if the world could end and he would still write because this is what his soul seeks. and since i barely remember what happens, it doesn't feel like a re-read either. i also like the writing style - it's different, it forces you to pay attention.
πŸ“š
my only problem? i'm not a high-fantasy geek anymore, at least not of this kind of tolkien-esque setting. i still love it, but it's not the same as it could have been years ago.
πŸ“š
i'll read wot as fast as possible and one after the other to avoid losing my interest. january and february are all booked :))

What's the best book that you've read in 2018?
πŸ“š
last post this year, cause i don't think i'll post tomorrow. and yes, i plan to read wheel of time next year πŸ˜… these days have been a blur and i'm feeling weirdly agitated and nervous, as if i forgot to do or think about something. a bit anxious. i don't feel like i'm carpe dieming enough and i feel the moments slipping through my fingers. weird, i know. i feel like i'm not ready or prepared, so i can't come with a worthy last caption. but it's ok. it's not like it's that important. i hope you have fun and i hope you're enjoying yourself and reading good books and all. see you in 2019 πŸ€—
