Hello, friends! I decided to start something new on Yellow Eccentricity called #ThoughtfulThursday. This is the time every Thursday where I post a little something special, may it be a list or just something that I think would be interesting to get out there, like an “A Day in my Life” post, because I told you guys that I am extremely busy.
This week, I am going to be talking about the different places in which I read. Now, unlike most people, I don’t have a specific area where I do all of my reading. It really depends on how I’m feeling in that particular moment, and that’s what I am going to talk to you about here.
In the car
Whenever my family decides we’re going to go out to dinner, or that we’re going to go to a family member’s house, I always bring a book with me. On Christmas, we had dinner at my cousins’ house, which is roughly an hour away from where I live, so I brought The Hobbit with me in the car, and read it in their house all the way up until dinner. It posed as a great conversation starter – The Hobbit is a classic – but it also made people think, “She’s reading, don’t bother her,” which is something that I’m starting to really appreciate during family functions nowadays. So, I always bring a book with me in the car. No matter how short the drive is, it’s always there with me.
In my bed
I have a loft bed, so there always seems to be a book of some kind up in the corner somewhere. Sometimes, whenever I actually get into the bed before 10:00, I’ll read about 50 pages of my book, just so I can. Reading late at night also helps with staying tired: if you find that you can’t go to sleep at night, read. It really helps.
In my living room
This location is more of a summer of 2016 thing. My living room is pretty drafty. It’s easily the coldest room in my house, and there are large windows with blinds on one wall. It’s the perfect summer reading area. I’ll sit on the couch, open up the blinds, put on some music and start reading. The walls are bright yellow, so that adds to the feel of happiness, and makes it seems like a pure, mainstream “Instagram” moment. 😉
On my little chair/sofa thingy
In my room, I currently have a turquoise sofa sectional. It is supposed to be the corner of the sofa, so there’s literally a square in the corner of my room that I like to sit on with lots of pillows. I’ll try to insert a picture of it later, but it’s where I do a lot of things now. For example, I’m currently writing this post on this little thingy. Honestly, I have no idea what to call it, but it’s a matter of time before it becomes one of my main reading areas for the winter. Especially when I start having (hopefully) snow days!!
On the go
Tying in with bringing my books with me in the car, I bring these things everywhere. For example, This past Friday I was in this String Fest event where I went through rehearsals from 10:00am – 5:30pm, and none of my friends participated with me. Before my day started, I thought, “Hey, maybe I should bring a book with me,” and that was very honestly the highlight of that trip, so thank you, Heartless by Marissa Meyer.
Thank you guys so much for…
- Giving me the opportunity to do things like #thoughtfulthursday. If I didn’t have even the smallest following, I wouldn’t be striving for such greatness right now. And,
- Reading this post to the end. I really appreciate it.
Until next time:
Yellow Eccentricity ❤
