The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else's cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same #name you call God - if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That's what I think.

I haven‘t been the best about keeping up with #bfcr4 updates, but I‘ve been good about cheering on my #runningonreading team!

Fitness/Health:
I‘ve kept up with my personal training 2x a week & I feel pretty good— I leg pressed 140lbs on Thursday! Got this sweet water bottle at the Sleater-Kinney show last Friday! Mom snail-mailed me an article about thyroids so I did some light reading, too.

Books:
I FINALLY FINISHED PRIORY OF THE ORANGE TREE!!

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 sounds like you had a good 6-weeks 5d
Caterina Amazing!!! Congrats on finishing that tome! And I love the water bottle 😍 4d
BarbaraJean Great job on all of this!! Especially Priory of the Orange Tree—that is no small feat!! Congratulations on a great challenge—so glad to have been on a team with you! 4d

1. Does anyone remember pogs? After that, Pokémon cards were all the rage (where my other ‘90s kids at?!)
2. Yeah - we had Jump Rope for Heart every year at school
3. Rugrats
4. Cheese, I think ? Oooh I also liked Dunkaroos, but my mom was really strict about sweets so I only got to indulge when dad did the grocery shopping ?
5. No, I took my lunch to school
6. School bus ?

Mehso-so

*Heavy sigh* I think I feel a little disappointed, a little ripped off.

There were some great characters here, but those great characters were pushed aside in favor of two relatively dull characters. Characters I‘ve read before over and over again. For a story that opens with such promise, I‘m disappointed with the delivery. I wish the story had focused more on Tané & Nayimathun & the land of Seiiki. Or even The Priory!

??

hermyknee The Priory is a great setting filled with intriguing characters. The book is called The Priory of the Orange Tree after all—but an over abundance of time is spent setting up and developing characters in Inys leaving the great characters and storylines in the south and the east underdeveloped. For its length, the book had a hard time focusing. By the time epilogues for each character/storyline rolled around, I skipped all but one. 😕 (edited) 1w
Soubhiville I agree. I was pretty disappointed in this book. 1w
hermyknee @Soubhiville I‘m glad I‘m not the only one - I feel like ours is a fairly #unpopularopinion 1w

hermyknee @Bklover for a book with dragons on the cover, there has been very little dragon action. And she spends most of the time on characters that hate dragons. And the prologue or whatever starts out so cool and promising with my favorite character and dragons and blood and plague, and then I get squat for the next 70% of the book. 😑 2w

My anxiety has been through the roof lately. It‘s super high and every day feels like a marathon. I really appreciate @JoScho sending me this book! I spend a lot of time in my head thinking about what a trash human I am and feeling like crap—recounting every single thing I‘ve done wrong in my life, but these doodles are pulling me back out.

“Anxiety, by its very nature, is irrational.” (page 97)

JoScho Hang in there. Anxiety is an ugly bitch. I woke up Monday just eaten up with it. No good reason but no talking myself out of it. Sending you love 🖤 2w
That-Bookish-Hiker I spend A LOT of time in my head too. The only time I am not is when I am reading which is why my “books read” number is high. Otherwise my brain will take me to something I did 15 years ago and something that happened the day before. I‘m sorry you are dealing with this. 2w

Slow progress is still progress, right? I don‘t know why this book is taking me so long— oh wait! Yes I do! It‘s super effing long. Don‘t get me wrong, I‘m enjoying it, but I generally don‘t get too far each evening before my eyes droop and I find I‘ve fallen asleep on myself 😋

Maybe I‘ll be able to make a dent joining #LitsyPartyofOne this weekend?! I won‘t be able to jump in until Saturday evening, but I‘m looking forward to it anyway!

But I‘ll read for a good 30 minutes and only make 1% progress - I guess that‘s the hardest part, I can‘t actually see the progress I‘m making because I don‘t have the physical book. There are pros and cons to reading on kindle, for sure. 2w

Yes. All the yes. I‘ve already put on the “keep fucking going” bracelet, pinned the “Living the Hoodie Life” pin to myself and slipped on these adorable “snailed it” socks!

I‘ve been introverting all day and I love it.

Thank you, @JoScho !!! I‘ve got so much love for you, girl! 💖

AmberWB I bought myself a cuff bracelet last school year that says (in tiny letters, because my kids can read 😁) “unfuckwithable”. It has truly kept me going some days! 3w
JoScho Yes girl you “snailed it” 🖤 3w

My characters tend to be more #dynamic because they're reaching that point in their lives where their old way of being is breaking down. They're conflicted by the idea that they don't know what's next. You could call it Kierkegaard's leap of faith, when you get tired of sort of reinventing yourself on a very superficial level.
- Chuck Palahniuk

The end of that quote tho. I feel it. 🖤

All right, guys. We had a door decorating contest this week for Red Ribbon Week. My door is so cute - we made Frankenstein‘s monster and wrote “Don‘t experiment with drugs!”

But, this. This is the door nextdoor to me and my goodness there is one talented artist in that class. It scared the s*** out of me when I walked down the hall this morning!

I knew I had to post it here, to be appreciated by all of you ♥️ #losersclub #stephenking @DGRachel

Reggie There was this thing about A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 being banned in Germany because of the drug use but a survey later found out that the drug use in ANOES 3 was more deterring of drug use than a lot of other programs. Lol 3w
hermyknee @Reggie I can‘t handle horror but ANOES had me scared to sleep, period, as a child 😳I can definitely see the drug use and subsequent horror to be a deterrent 2w

I‘m speechless! Megan, you‘ve outdone yourself. This is such an incredible, special, heartfelt package! 🖤 All of the books sound like fun, the candle is beautiful and it smells great, coffee, bookmarks, book sleeve, crystal necklace (I‘m wearing it today!), but most of all, this painting you created of Nico and Charlie (my familiars) is THE BEST THING EVER! I‘m crying. 🖤🖤🖤
