“It is not so that the good detective should act, eh? I perceive your thought. He must be full of energy. He must rush to and fro. He should prostrate himself on the dusty road and seek the marks of tyres through a little glass. He must gather up the cigarette-end, the fallen match? That is your idea, is it not?”

His eyes challenged us. “But I - Hercule Poirot - tell you that it is not so! The true clues are within - here!” He tapped his forehead. “See you, I need not have left London. It would have been sufficient for me to sit quietly in my rooms there. All that matters is the little grey cells within. Secretly and silently they do their part, until suddenly I call for a map, and I lay my finger on a spot - so - and I say: the Prime Minister is there! And it is so! With method and logic one can accomplish anything!”

- Agatha Christie, Poirot Investigates: The Kidnapped Prime Minister

anonymous asked:

do you like reading books? if you do, do you have any favorites?

Okay I’m feeling #exposed because yes, I love reading books, and even was an English major back in the day, but lately (and by lately I mean for the past few years) have really been slacking in the book department, especially fictional works..

But some of my forever faves are –

  • Literally anything by Oscar Wilde. My book of his complete works is my all-time favorite, and whenever I’m brave/committed enough to a design I plan on getting a Wilde-inspired tattoo. 
  • House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski, which I fully acknowledge is not for everybody and is a bear to get through, but there is seriously nothing else like it. Best/worst read alone in your home after losing power in a hurricane. 
  • The Secret History by Donna Tartt
  • Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
  • A Separate Peace by John Knowles (although tbh I haven’t read this one since high school so idk if it’s still one of my faves but it holds a v special place in my heart.)

If you’re open to non-fiction, some of my recent faves are –

  • And the Band Played On by Randy Shilts
  • Why are all the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? by Beverly Tatum (seriously I think this book should be required reading for all white people, I actually gave my copy to my mom to read because she was really struggling with understanding everything that goes into systemic racism/white privilege and it was really helpful to her.)
  • Quiet by Susan Cain, shout out to the introverts
  • Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W. Loewen (highly recommend for all Americans tbh, breaks down some of the most common historical myths that are still taught in American schools)

I’m sure I’m missing a bunch but that was just off the top of my head. But I really do need to read more so if anybody has recs, please send them my way!!!

acca 13 // jean and nino

i swear i only started watching this anime on a whim and yet here we are……. really enjoying it so far!!!

I succeeded in forcing myself to get up at 6am and go swimming today! I fell off that wagon hard almost two years ago, in terms of going regularly. It was so, so hard to do, but I did it!!! I didn’t swim very far or for very long (half an hour), and I’m ashamed of how hard I’m feeling it already. Pulling myself out of the water, I was like, oh right, the jelly-leg feeling. My fave. Lol. I’ll get better at this, though!! Small steps. 

My other little step toward general better health and habits this week was realising that I don’t need to take sugar in my coffee. I’m pleased - this one was easy, actually! 

If you’re feeling stuck, the most important thing to do is to take a single step forward. It doesn’t have to be impressive. It just has to be something that puts you into motion again. :) 

The boys are my friends dragging me out of my house.

And Lydia is me not wanting to go out and being upset that I have to wear jeans. Arg I hate JEANS!!!

I didn’t notice but Liam was like, “where do I go”? He’s so adorable.
