So it’s the first day of college and there are people handing out bibles everywhere

I think it’s a part of the Christian idea to help those who “need it most”. You’ve made yourself clear that you do not accept God, and they feel morally obligated to “save” you. This is merely an explanation of their actions, not a justification of said actions.

So they see me as a challenge

No they see as an asshole, and they figure the more bibles you’re given the pissier you’re going to be.

At least I’m not a fandom blog 😂😂😂

SEE. THIS IS MY PROBLEM WITH ALL THOSE RELIGIOUS PEOPLE. THEY JUST CAN’T GET A HINT. I am not generalizing here, just to be clear. You know who you are, the ones I am pertaining to.

They all preach about peace and harmony and all that crap and then they do things like this. They hate on atheist, agnostics, and anti-theists because we “disrespect their belief and their god for refusing their lessons”. But that’s what they actually do to us, too. They cannot make peace with the fact that we have a different belief. That for us, their gods don’t exist.  It’s a fucking double standard. When we say that we don’t believe in religion or any god, we don’t mean that we need an intervention so you can somehow bring us “salvation”. We couldn’t care less.

What is so difficult with RESPECT MY BELIEFS AND I’LL RESPECT YOURS. It’s a simple idea. And this is not only applicable with religion. It can be used in terms of race, sexuality, gender, etc. Maybe if we just let other people be, our world would be a better place.

Day 29 : Chapter

If I could tear away and burn one chapter from a book, this would be it. This part of Veronica Roth’s Allegiant destroyed me. I was so at lost and in denial of what happened that it took me three more days just to finish the remaining chapters. I seriously did not expect what happened in this chapter, and I am still not in peace with it.

A message from Anonymous
IF YOU LIKE HOPELESS BY COLLEEN HOOVER, YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO FOR THE LOVE OF A DAUGHTER BY DEMI LOVATO. LOVE YOU.

I am not familiar with this song so I looked it up and listened to it. And holy crap, it’s like it was specifically written for the book itself! Damn. Thanks, anon! :D

"But it’s a sad truth in life that when someone has lost a loved one, friends sometimes avoid the person, just when the presence of friends is most needed."
Lemony Snicket (ASoUE 1 : The Bad Beginning)

I still cannot believe that he was the young Tommy in Never Let Me Go. I feel so fucking old.

Day 28 : Quote
"I am tired of trying to hold thing together that cannot be held, trying to control what cannot be controlled. I am tired of denying myself what I want for fear of breaking things I cannot fix. They will break no matter what we do."
—Erin Morgenstern (The Night Circus)
I love this quote so much. I think in a lot of ways, it is relevant to everyone especially those who live in their world of comfort, so scared of doing or getting what they want for fear of failure.

1. Who are you? 

I’m Bernadette, though most people call me Badz. I’m 21 years old and I am a licensed Physical Therapist from the Philippines. If it’s not obvious yet, I am a bookworm and I have been reading books since I was 4 years old.

2. What do you look like? 

image

I currently look like this. Forgive my face. Yes, all the wild hair and bright-colored lipstick. Haha.

3. Who are some of your favourite authors and books? 

Let’s keep this short. So some of the books I love are the Harry Potter series, The Book Thief, The Night Circus, Catcher in the Rye, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Lunar Chronicles, South of the Border West of the Sun, and of course, A Series of Unfortunate Events. 

As for authors, I love Tahereh Mafi, John Green, JK Rowling, Lang Leav, Erin Morgenstern, and Haruki Murakami. 

4. Where is your comfiest reading spot? 

image

My bed, of course. It’s a bit messy right now because I am reading. I usually toss and turn or sit up or do crazy positions while I read. I just can’t keep still.

5. Have you read A Series of Unfortunate Events before? 

Yes, I have. I read the series twice before. Both times while I was in high school.

6. What are your thoughts on the movie adaptation if you have seen it?

I’ve watched and I actually enjoyed it. I just hoped that they made one movie per book and continued with the other books.

7. How are you reading the books? Hardcover? Paperback? Kindle?

I am reading it on my Kindle. Sadly, the ones I read before were from my school’s library. I have yet to own the series for my self.

8. How did you obtain these unhappy tales? 

I don’t own them yet, which is such a disgrace, but I am planning to buy the whole set soon.

9. Are you updating your progress anywhere else? 

Yes, on Goodreads.

10. What are you hoping to get out of this readalong? 

I want to see how I would react with the story now that I am older. The last time I read it was 6 years ago and maybe today, I’ll be able to understand the story deeper and get more out it than last time. I also want to be back in Lemony Snicket’s brilliant world.

It’s September 28 here in our country and that means it’s the start of literatureloveaffair and thebooker's A Series of Unfortunate Events Readalong.
This week is allotted for the first book in the series, The Bad Beginning. And what better way to read it with a nice cup of coffee-double dutch float. It feels so surreal reading this series again after a long time. Last time I did was way back in high school, which was 6 years ago. I hope you guys join the readalong. Wish me luck!

Day 27 : Favorite Villain
Lord Voldemort aka Tom Marvolo Riddle
For me, he is worst and most vile villain of all. He is the epitome of evil and he does not have an ounce of conscience at all. Most villains have their own back story, an explanation of sorts as to why they became what they are. But Lord Voldemort is different, he is pure evil. I cannot see a sliver of good in him no matter how hard I try. And that is why he is my most favorite villain of all.

"It’s okay, I’m used to it."

I feel bothered every single time I hear this phrase. No matter what context, no matter who said it, I feel sad because I always think about what could have happened to that person for him/her to settle for something he/she clearly doesn’t want. I don’t know if it’s just me or what, but this phrase has a very negative and heavy connotation, like whatever the issue/thing that kept happening was, it resulted for that person to just be all resigned as if it’s normal and there’s nothing more he/she could do about it.

I am $50 away from that The 1975 concert ticket. Ugh. I need money. UUUUGGGGHHH
