New found hobby

Well, it seems that my new hobby would be competing with long-held past time – which was sleeping – especially when I’m riding the jeepney during my trip from home to UPLB everyday and back: READING books,  that is.

I was never into books, really. Just seeing how those words, but not just words but plenty of WORDS, crowd themselves up into each of the pages of any book make me drowsy and after a little while – lithely travelling through the realm of the subconscious. My desire to go into my 2nd most pleasurable state(sleeping, for me) is so strong that only using the computer can stop it, which apparently is my most pleasured state. UGH. What exactly am I talking about!!

Moving on, this is such a drastic change for a person like me who used to LOATHE letters-printed-in-pages-bound-together-wrapped-with-a-cardboard-thing. NOW I CHOOSE TO READ RATHER THAN TO SLEEP, and take note: to READ while inside the jeep. I’m definitely proud of myself to be able to resist from sleeping the fact that the place I loved to sleep the most is while I am INSIDE MOVING VEHICLES.

So much for the blabbering.. I created an account at shelfari.com where I keep track of the books I’m reading, I’ve read and I’m planning to read. The site’s really cool and interactive with all those flash shelves moving left and right. HAHAHA. And oh, THE WIDGETS!! I included mine at the bottom part of this post.

Hey, I would like to acknowledge Rachelle for giving me the gist of Twilight which also served as an encouragement for me to read the book, making it the first ever NOVEL I have ever read since.🙂
