25 June 2017

The allergy + post-plane ride respiratory infection combo is REAL right now, but I’m sitting at a sunny table outside Panera drinking Early Grey tea with honey and eating a long-awaited black bean soup bread bowl (see: me drunkenly crying over bread bowls at a party a few days before I left).

My main plans today are to get dinner with my friend Hannah and, mostly, to stay out of my dad’s house (the source of all my allergens).

I told y’all I’m reading Slaughterhouse-Five which is the BOMB, so here’s a list of all the books I read while in Greece that are v perfect for summer reading:

  1. Action: A Book about Sex by Amy Rose Spiegel — it is, as the name implies, a book about sex, but is the best of its kind and feels like the world’s best older sister is having a chat with you.
  2. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami — as recommended by Queen Patti Smith. It’s a beautiful, dreamy fiction/fantasy novel that unfolds gradually as life unfolds, making its mysticism so, so real. 
  3. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut — duh
  4. Too Much and Not the Mood by Durga Chew-Bose — a beautiful book of memoirs and essays that I heard about from the @rookiemag podcast, which I also highly recommend!

If you have any summer reads to recommend, shoot them to me in a message. That’s all I’ve got for now.

Stay tuned for a big, big post about my trip (so also shoot me questions you have about my trip so I can answer them). I will have a new phone TOMORROW finally !

ashtraysonfire  asked:

My love! When your traveling do you take food with you or do you buy some along the way? And what are some essentials you carry with you?✨ have a beautiful day

hello again beauty :) it all depends in each circumstance & how i am travelling… this time i was hiking & camping through moutains and would spend a few days without passing through villages & so no access to buying food so i would buy & carry it with me but i don’t usually, i just buy or harvest along the way. 

as for essentials, again it depends on what i am doing but :: sleeping bag, tent or hammock or just a tarp on the ground, a few clothes (not much at all ~ 2 or 3 pants, 2 or 3 tops, 1 warmer sweater, 4 underwear, 1 pair of warm socks, a headscarf…). as for toiletries : bamboo toothbrush, clay toothpaste, a tiny jar of coconut oil (or something moisturizing ~ shea butter, etc.), a bit of natural soap & a tiny bottle of lavender essential oil or any other essential oil i feel the call towards. sandals or boots, depending on what i am doing. a journal and a pen. my lil bag of medicine (rapé, rapé applicator, shipibo cloth, agua florida, palo santo, a clear quartz crystal or any crystal i feel the call). a pocket knife. a lighter. iphone. wallet (with money and id card and debit card). a light & small container for food. a needle & thread. phone charger. power bank. & not much else, and most of these things i only need because i camp most of the time :) if i was staying in hostels or so, i wouldn’t bring half of these things and could easily only have a very tiny backpack with a few clothes and toiletries.

what i miss the most when travelling is my guitar :) i wish it wasn’t such an hassle to carry it & hike with it… but makes me appreciate it a ten thousands more when there is a guitar around or i am reunited with mine hehe! blessings <3

Weekly Reading List #25

Hello there!

Originally posted by yourreactiongifs

It’s Sunday again and I’m glad to finish my Weekly Reading List for you! It’s not that short this time, especially because some fanfictions are multiparter. I hope you gonna enjoy them!

Unfortunately it’s a busy time for me right now due to work and my honorary office (is it called like that? I hope so). That means I don’t have enough time to work on my “Favorite of the Day”-series and that’s frustrating me a lot. I just hope there will be light at the end of the tunnel soon, because there are a lot of good fanfictions I like to show you! And I’m thinking about writing some fanfics on my own, but there isn’t really much time for that now. Maybe I should hurry up and find me a new job, a job with regular working time and free weekends… but even for writing a job application I need time… vicious circle.

But thanks to you and this amazing writers there are a lot of small things to cheer me up and I hope they do it to you, too! Until next week!

Sunday Seven

Today was about as close to perfect as a day can get. It was hot and sunny, and I got to spend it outside playing in the dirt. Also…I did NOT get a sunburn anywhere!

I drove into town around 1:00pm to water the community garden. I did NOT get stuck in traffic. It was smooth sailing there and back.

I took my camera with me when I went to community garden. Almost all of the photos I snapped were of bees. It’s great to see so many of them! I didn’t get around to uploading them to my iMac for processing yet. I didn’t even bother to look at them in the LCD screen when I got home. I hope they turned out okay.

My peppers are flowering, which always gets me a little excited, but I’m even more excited this year, because I’m growing varieties I’ve never tried before. A YouTube gardener from Norway sent me the seeds.

My potatoes and bush beans went in the ground today, which means, I’m officially done with seed planting. I still have some transplanting left to do though.

Even with all the time I spent outside doing stuff today, I hadn’t met my step goal by mid evening, so I grabbed my iPod and had a dance party for one in my bedroom. I’m now at 16,439 steps. I quit dancing at 9:55 when the song, “Every Breath You Take” came up in the shuffle. I really like that song, but, since it was the last thing I heard before bed, I’ll probably have stalker dreams all night.

I need more days just like today. I must find a way to make it happen.

Monday morning edit: I did, indeed, have stalker dreams all night.

Great Horror Movies you Probably Haven’t Seen

There are a ton of well known horror movies out there that get all the credit, however, there are also a slew of horror movies that barely get any recognition and are just as, if not more, compelling than those that are well known. Here’s a list of horror movies that I think are worth a watch. 

1. Vacancy

A Man and his Wife are traveling and their car breaks down. After being forced to rent a cheap motel room with crappy slasher movies, they soon realize that those movies aren’t movies at all.

2. Hush

A deaf woman lives alone in the woods to maintain a solitary lifestyle. Though when a killer shows up at her window, she has to fight to maintain that silence.

3. The Caller

After Mary moves into her new apartment, she begins to get calls from a strange old woman who seems to be confused about the last occupant no longer being there. Though, as a Mary soon finds out, this isn’t just a confused old woman.

4. Husk

A group of young adults get lost in the middle of farm country during their road trip. Attempting to find a way back to civilization, they decide to venture into the cornfields to try and find the farmer that owns and tends to the land. Little do they know, the owner isn’t exactly human.

5. Nothing Left to Fear

A Pastor and his family move to a small Kansas town in search of a fresh start. Though, little do they know, the religious folk there aren’t exactly your typical Christians.

6. The Tunnel

A Journalist’s career is on its last leg and she needs a powerful story to pull her out of the gutter. After a clean water initiative to take water from abandoned train tunnels underground, proposed by a political party during the election cycle, all but disappears from the papers overnight, her and her film crew go to investigate why.

7. Funny Games

After arriving at their lake house, a family trying to have a nice vacation is held hostage by two sadistic boys who make them play increasingly disturbing games. 

8. The Midnight Meat Train

A photographer in New York City is struggling to get the recognition he desires until his friend introduces him to an art gallery owner. After showing the gallery owner his pictures, she insists that if he wants to be recognized his pictures of what New York City is truly like need to be more shocking and provoking. Taking her advice, he hits the streets late at night and captures a picture of something he wasn’t supposed to.

9. Pathology

Have you ever wondered how someone would go about committing the perfect murder? So have a group of up and coming doctors who use their medical expertise to play a rather disturbing game of “Guess Who?”

10. The Borderlands

A group of Vatican miracle investigators go to investigate yet another supposed miracle. Little do they know, this isn’t just another routine debunking expedition.

Endearing Qualities:

Aries: “I can be argumentative towards someone I care for but if someone else does it towards them then that’s just not on.”

Taurus: Expressing affection through physical goods, whether that’s preparing food, baking goods, or seemingly random gifts. They can find that generosity communicates more than they could in words.

Gemini: Their short attention span. Even in times of hurt and anger, if they can find something to be curious about, they can shift into a new experience, much like distracting a child. And I don’t mean that in a patronising way. They morph their reality.

Cancer: The warmth and care they often show to those that are vulnerable, almost like an openness despite their reservations in new situations. They balance assertion and softness admirably as a cardinal water sign.

Leo: Naive idealism. They just don’t get maliciousness and cruelty. Pride and pettiness, sure. But the former has no justifiable place in their world.

Virgo: Their willingness to see themselves in the context of everyone else, to work in a team, to embrace that their part, no matter how small, is a cog in the workings of a whole system. They can appear rather ego-less in this context.

Libra: The ability to romanticise everyday gestures or situations, a way of adding a sense of art and intrigue into the otherwise ordinary to others.

Scorpio: How they draw meaning from most everything. Nothing is just a surface matter for them, but something for them to consider, scrutinise and draw as much information from as possible. They look for depth, a rich existence.

Sagittarius: Their sense of humour. Their happiness radiates from them, and they can find lightness in difficult and troubled times, which in turn, spreads to others.

Capricorn: The sweetness they add into things in subtlety. Outright displays of affection are unlikely, but they find ways to express it in other ways.

Aquarius: Their awkwardness when it comes to “heavy” topics or one to one interaction. They can often deflect this with humour and intellectual topics to talk about, once again putting them in their element.

Pisces: The extent they can go to for the sake of pleasing others from a place of kindness is extensive. They can be one thing and say one thing to one person, and change for another, reaching maximum connection to the person in their immediate company. They are accommodating individuals.

Books you should read because I LOVE THEM

Dedication: For @kissmybruisedknuckles who told me to make this because she’s too lazy to make one lol

1. Strange The Dreamer - Laini Taylor

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

2. The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notices plastered on lampposts and billboards. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within these nocturnal black-and-white striped tents awaits an utterly unique, a feast for the senses, where one can get lost in a maze of clouds, meander through a lush garden made of ice, stare in wonderment as the tattooed contortionist folds herself into a small glass box, and become deliciously tipsy from the scents of caramel and cinnamon that waft through the air.

Welcome to Le Cirque des Rêves.

3. Unwind - Neil Shusterman

The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child “unwound,” whereby all of the child’s organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn’t technically end. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state, is not enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape and to survive.

4. Cinder - Marissa Meyer

Sixteen-year-old Cinder is considered a technological mistake by most of society and a burden by her stepmother. Being cyborg does have its benefits, though: Cinder’s brain interference has given her an uncanny ability to fix things (robots, hovers, her own malfunctioning parts), making her the best mechanic in New Beijing. This reputation brings Prince Kai himself to her weekly market booth, needing her to repair a broken android before the annual ball. He jokingly calls it “a matter of national security,” but Cinder suspects it’s more serious than he’s letting on.

5. This Savage Song - Victoria Schwab

Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city—a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent—but he’s one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who’s just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it. But Kate discovers August’s secret, and after a failed assassination attempt the pair must flee for their lives.

6. The Darkest Part of The Forest - Holly Black

Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.

Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. At the center of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.

7. Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

8. Daughter of Smoke and Bone - Laini Taylor

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grows dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherworldly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”, she speaks many languages - not all of them human - and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.

9. Illuminae - Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

BRIEFING NOTE: Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more

10. Legend - Marie Lu

What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

11. Angelfall (Penryn and the end of days) - Susan Ee

It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back.

Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.

12. Caraval - Stephanie Garber

Remember, it’s only a game…

Scarlett Dragna has never left the tiny island where she and her sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval—the faraway, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show—are over.

But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt-of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.

13. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkin

Mara Dyer believes life can’t get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.

It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed.

There is.

14. An Ember In The Ashes - Sabaa Tahir

Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free.

Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear. It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do.

15. The Darkest Minds - Alexandra Bracken

When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America’s children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they could not control.

16. The Wrath and The Dawn - Renee Ahdieh

One Life to One Dawn.

In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad’s dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride. Shahrzad is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph’s reign of terror once and for all.
