Omona, do you enjoy solitude?

I can either live in a super busy city or in complete solitude with just wifi and cat. maybe when I'm older I'll find some place in a small quiet ass town where I can have a garden and never have to leave my house unless it's for essentials.

Learning to take time alone for myself has seriously saved my metal health and I've gotten way better at saying no when I really don't have the mental or emotional energy to do anything. Self-care ya'll!

I think I enjoy having both the buzz and energy of a big city (well, I guess that's relative but not a small town at least) and also having a getaway into solitude, whether it's on the countryside or my own apartment, it's a nice balance.

Tho I think I get a bit too comfortable in my solitude, I should work on being more social as well because isolating yourself isn't good either even if it feels safe :

I can read all day, most days. lack of regular solitude makes me an emotional, unpleasant person.

how are you feeling after these episodes? have your reproductive organs imploded?

I wish I was as diligent of a reader nowadays as I was when I was younger, but I just can't find books that hold my interest that long anymore. I also go crazy without my regularly scheduled quality-alone-time.

Lol this is more an asmr experience than an ovary-imploder, I do enjoy looking at him in his lil cardigan drinking tea(?) and talking about books and sounding all smart :')

Also, as someone who works in a bookshop, this is perfect. The Vasconcelos one is a classic but I'm still surprised to see it mentionned here.

I'm positively surprised, the books that've been mentioned so far seem quite good or interesting at least. Jinyoung's not called the bookworm of the group for nothing! :)
(tho he's not the only one but he's definitely made it his brand now lol)
