“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.” ― Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park
I bought this book mid January or February-ish (?) but I wanted to set a goal for myself (I wanted to clear my subjects first haha) and the prize would be finally reading this. A few days ago, I finally got the hang of reading this and holy shit what fucking plot twist is this sorcery I do not understand what the fuck
Eleanor & Park (Rainbow Rowell) ★★★★☆
Eleanor is a read-headed, shy girl who comes from a dysfunctional family. Park, on the other hand, is half Korean and lives a better life compared to Eleanor. They both met on the school bus and eventually became friends through Park’s comics and mixtapes. To be quite honest, I like this better than TFIOS (though TFIOS is a tear jerker) because it actually depicts about real life issues and the likes. Would I read this book again? Hells yeah I would. It’s definitely a good read and I would 100% recommend anyone to read it.
Also, I plan to email Rainbow Rowell (if I ever find her mail on the internet, at least) because I have a heck load of questions to ask and I’ve already cooked them up in my brain 3 nights ago whilst I couldn’t sleep and it’s 2 AM.
We recently went to Batangas since it’s holy week and the whole family wanted to relax from the city. I did quite enjoy our 3-day stay since we went everywhere and elsewhere, hung out with our relatives, not to mention I got to reflect on my life albeit. My cousin and I skated along roads and streets near our house and pass by the mini forest the family owns as well. I think that this is, by far, the best stay we’ve had.
The universe has been good to me recently minus migraine.
I recently graduated high school which, I believe, is the end of dogma and also so I can runaway from the cringe fest prom pictures that is my caked face. The ceremony was long as f; I didn’t cry awe yiiiis.
A few days ago I posted my face with Finn the same day I got him. 2 days before graduation, my cousin and I decided to skate and I was really excited to show her my ~sk8ter moves~ (thanks youtube!) then I fell off and landed on my left side — leaving me with a scarred ankle, an inch long scar on my thigh, and a scratch on my palm. Oh well
I also compiled all the excess videos of me and my friends and organized my video thumbnails because I’m sort of OC like that. After holy week or so, we’ll start shooting for a short film we’ve been meaning to do for a friend a few months ago.
One question mark isn’t enough so basically ?????? means I’m questioning life and it’s meaning and I need to find a summer job so I can (somehow) support myself, give something to church, and help my mum in the smallest way as possible.
Lastly, I forgot to add this on the photo above but I signed up for the Media Ministry in my church so I’m pretty much the tech person editing videos, pictures, and leaflets during and/or off service. My mum also joined the teaching ministry and she started last Sunday.
That’s all the interesting things I could think of right now haha :)
