library sci

I got my hearts desire, he thought, and there my troubles began”


I had a love / hate relationship with this book. I fell in love with the scfy adaption of this, and it made it very hard for me to read the book. Finishing the first book, I think the show did alot better job, but that could be only because I watched the show first. I definitely recommend you read this, it’s like Harry potter:adult version.

I found this note inside this book that I randomly came across and have been wanting to read while I was exploring this awesome library in the city.

First, this note is so touching and is such a good & wise message to just randomly find in a book (I don’t know if this has anything to do with the book though, but still appreciate the message). Second, the library has 4 levels and incredible scenery of the city! And there are plenty of study spaces, so I think I’m going to spend some more time there studying. 😄



So woke up this morning to find the house totally out of power and the burglar alarm stuck on, so took refuge with one of my housemates in the library until the landlord had everything fixed. Ended up getting tons of work done, and now have made Sunday Library Study a regular thing- spent today revising for my Algebra and Combinatorics exam tomorrow, wish me luck!!

Book Recommendations Please

Hey hey,

Looking for a book to read with some specifications:

- Interesting
- Fiction
- Nothing sappy
- No bloody vampires (no pun intended)
- No zombies
- Interesting (because it’s worth mentioning twice)

Other than that, I’m pretty easy going. I’m well-read, so I’m open to books that have varying levels of language. Plus, if I don’t understand something, I’ll just look it up. That’s the best part of reading something new.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Hope you’re happy and well!
Have a fantastic week!

PS: I don’t have heaps of followers so it would be lovely if some people could reblog this. It would mean the world to me and you’re welcome to message me about following back. C:

April 7, 2016 // [3/100

I’ve been taking a break from my regular/required/real schoolwork and attending a conference on campus about voting/collective decision-making. The conference has been fascinating – in my four years, one of the most academically inspiring events I’ve partaken in; I feel reaffirmed in my hopes about grad school. Anyways, it all took place in this warm room in the Quadrangle Club.
