Facebook

I just deactivated my Facebook account. I'm still debating if I'm going to delete it all the way yet or not, but so far this is freeing. :)

I should start updating this journal more often to make up for it.

Prettiness and Insomnia

So through my random explorations on Tumblr, I came across this quote, and felt like sharing because I quite like it:

You Don’t Have to Be Pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilisation in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female”.

This is one of my favourite songs to listen to when I have insomnia. Which is why I'm posting at 4 in the morning. For those who don't speak French, it's about the rain at night. It's kind of a love song.

Books

My book on Celtic and Norse mythology just arrived, moments before Amazon emailed me to tell me Bill Peet's autobiagraphy, which I ordered the other day, just shipped. I think I need to stop impulse buying books on Amazon.

But also, Eeeeeee! :D
