    I'm still processing how Featherstonehaugh is pronounced Fanshaw.
  4. Too Much Internet

    One of my five resolutions for the new year is to only use the internet for one hour per day. I chose this because, for too many days since my school years, I lose myself in loading several different webpages in a nonstop consumption of media. I wondered if it was having an impact on my mental well-being, and after last night I think that's definitely the case. I've been saving the last two hours of the evening for some reading, writing or anything else that doesn't involve sitting in front of the computer. However, last night I fell into my old habit and, once I went to bed, I couldn't fall asleep as I was thinking too much about several different things. Not deep thoughts, but buzzwords in a sort of ethereal cloud, related to the news and videos I watched. I was even a bit anxious, because I couldn't turn off my thoughts and I couldn't conduct them to a conclusion. I know that this constant need for new input is happening to other people my age, it's why me and so many of us grab the smartphone without reason. I wonder if a similar issue of anxiety, or inability to fall asleep, is happening to others.
  5. Carpe Diem

    I never grasped the concept behind this expression. I think it means to focus on the present and give little thought to what may come after, but doesn't that compromise the idea of delayed gratification, which we're told to follow in order to achieve something meaningful in the future?

    @muggle not so, when I hear a frog reditt reditt, does it mean I'm near a bookstore?
  7. Shelving books

    I arrange the books by size as well, and then by color and author, according to what feels best.

    Taken from a FB group: Why am I wearing a t-shirt with Agnes Grey on it? ..... Because I just like novel tees.

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good and for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only. I wrote all of that from memory and you'll have to take my word for it
  12. I still haven't read the original book, sorry. I enjoyed the first episode, more focused on the period setting and the personal drama of the main characters. Let's see what comes after.
  13. What are you listening to?
