They Call Me Bookworm

I was short in budget and I sold around half of the total amount of my books for the past 2 years. But I’m happy to say that I have no room left for all my books! I have two big bookshelves and I was so sad for about a year when I sold many of my books, but not anymore. I bought again some of them at used bookstores. I have got some very good books, books from my childhood that can easily buy at many bookstores.

I love second-hand bookstores, but the local used bookstore here just closed. It’s kind of depressing. That local library has a perk section and I’ve been getting many books there, paperback books and teen fiction books. I like to have hardcover books but I don’t want to pay full price of it. My old local used bookstore was great since they had so much hardcover books. I'm thinking about getting another book shelves, but I have no idea where I should put it.

My Best Friend Is My Sister

I know it’s lame to mention any member of your family as your best friend. But, it is true for me. I would never consider my sister to be my best friend 20 years ago because we fight like cats and dogs. The moment she became my best friend came when I was on my final year in college and she just started college. We rent the same boarder room. We get to do everything together.

Although our time together is short because I found a job, I still remember those days. We watched the same movie and eat a lot of stuff together. I got to the point that we would grow old together and rent an apartment together. Maybe, because we are away from home and get to the big city alone. But, my sister appreciates me more and so do I. The good relationship last until present day. I am comfortable with my sister now.

Why I love Instagram

Ever since I got my new smartphone, I immediately made an Instagram account. I love how easy it is to post stuff about my day and I wouldn’t have to explain it anymore because the picture says it all. Instagram also makes catching up with my friends more fun because I get to see how their day went via their image postings. Of course, I see to it that I don’t flood other people’s feed with my photos—I try to limit my daily posts to one or two photos so that my followers won’t feel the urge to unfollow me!

I can also do online shopping with the help of this brilliant app! I follow a lot of online shops and browse through their items when I’m bored. You’ll be surprised at how many shops you’ll find on Instagram—some sell food, clothes, accessories, some even sell furniture and cars! I can definitely say that Instagram is my one-stop-app for catching up, sharing, and exploring!

Celebrating Through A Timepiece

My friends called me the Scrooge. Compared to them, I don’t live lavishly, and as much as possible, I did not touch my salary. But that was not because I was cheap. The big reason was because I had a student loan to pay at the time, and my salary had no room for other miscellaneous spending. Last month, my wife and I were finally able to pay it off.

To celebrate, she got me this brand of watches. I have always wanted one, but due to the debt I owe, I always put it off. Well, not this time. Because I am officially free from debt, I can now wear my timepiece proudly. I am thinking of getting another one next month, not for celebration purposes, but just because I can.
