hellanne: (by Heidi Systo)

don’t insist, it’s not the books you read, it’s how you read them. Now go read Animal Farm. I’m currently reading The Shining, but for some reason I can’t get past the tenth page. Maybe I’ll just skip it and go to the next one on my reading list: Alexis Ohanian’s Without Their Permission. I know you’re not reading this as those two photos are way more interesting than my nonsense, but hey, you can’t blame me for trying…

After four sunsets and sunrises, the spirit, too, was gone. It was simply a body.

So I learned to hold my tongue and to turn my features into an indifferent mask so that no one could ever read my thoughts. Do my work quietly in school. Make only polite small talk in the public market. Discuss little more than trades in the Hob, which is the black market where I make most of my money.
