Humans and bloggy people! I have news! 😀 I finally got a bookshelf! Hoorah!
I was so excited to assemble this thing. SO. EXCITED. It was hard work. But I did it. Of course, using a handheld screwdriver, my hands h.u.r.t. so badly, but I think it was totally worth it 😀 It took a long time (and eventually, I went to the library and to the grocery store to give my hands a break XD), but I absolutely adore it.
This is the finished result ^.^ It was crazy arranging my books on a shelf, since they’ve pretty much been anywhere other than a shelf since leaving the store. My very first shelfie 😄 (Does a shelfie have to include myself in the photo as well…? I’m not very educated in the art of selfies/shelfies.)
So, the top shelf has random trinkets and such, since I don’t want it toppling over and am not able to mount my new piece of furniture to the wall. I tried to put more books on the bottom to stabilize it, but most of my heavier books are books I’d like to see on a regular basis -.-
On my second shelf, we have my wonderful J.K. Rowling collection, a few books I’ll be reading during the Bout of Books 10, and some other library books. I also have a random Rubik’s cube, lol. Remember those? I also have my HP magazine cut outs, which I made back when it was a full-blown obsession. Not that there’s anything wrong with obsessing over your favorite books 😀 I also have a deck of Harry Potter cards (which have never been used—just admired by myself and a few of my other HP fan friends). Funny thing is, I don’t really like change, so the cards have never gotten shuffled or anything. As in, they’re in the exact same order I got them in… *awkward*
Next shelf! We have my favorite books that will always be cherished, a part of my collection that really got me back into reading for fun. I have my large Lauren Myracle collection, and some other middle grade/YA authors whom I love. I also have, yes, a High School Musical book. You will never believe how many times I reread that, just because it was slightly larger than the other books I owned. Good times! I also have my (reluctantly small) Rick Riordan collection and my incomplete THG collection D:
In the corner of the third shelf, I have the very pen which I used to take notes on The House of Hades… woooow. I think my plan was to use the same pen to write my notes for The Blood of Olympus… Weird thoughts.
On the next shelf, I have my Veronica Roth collection, as well as two Divergent magazines. I have my Bloodlines and Vampire Academy there, too, and some Cassandra Clare in there!
At the very bottom is a mixture of my older childhood books and books that I haven’t read yet. I’d put them in a more desirable location, but, like I said, I want my shelf to stay grounded.
IT WAS SO EXCITING! I had to stop myself from rearranging the books when I hadn’t even finished putting all the books on there. Le sigh.
That’s all about books! Now for my random thoughts on technology 😀
I got a new phone today, which was fun. A tiny bit more advanced than my last one. I know touch screens are all the rage for phones, but I have yet to own one. Oh well!
I also wanted to show y’all this:
Okay, so the laptop on the left is my current laptop, a Toshiba. The laptop to the right… well, funny story. It’s one of Toshiba’s “laptops” from 1995 that my mom purchased for $1,300. Yes. No joke. And the thing’s heavy. It even used a floppy disk! LOL, we had those lying around somewhere in the house for a while. I used to love using that thing for solitaire and minesweeper and for typing like this: lsdkfjs dkfjsdkfj sdkfj kdsfjisfjksdfj seirdfdkd 254672 6686561861787. It was the bee’s knees when I was a kid 😄 Anyway, my current laptop was only $300. So, you could say that Toshiba has evolved in technology and prices!
Do you own any pieces of old technology? Do they still work?
Anywho, that’s all 😀 Good luck to those who are participating in the Bout of Books 10! I hope you meet your goals!
