"Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there’s a tomorrow. Maybe for you there’s one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it.
But for some of us there’s only today. And the truth is, you never really know."

Had a bit of a rough morning so I’m indulging in some sweet treats today: books (as if I need more) and ice chai (my love, my darling, my summer savior).
When I stumbled into B&N wandering aimlessly, I saw this cover on a stand alone kiosk in the aisle under “new paperbacks”. I couldn’t resist!! Braden, aka kryptaria, was my first foray into fanfic.
Her Northwest Passage (go:AO3. Read it now, I’ll wait…) was the first one I read where I thought “holy crap, that’s good! And it’s on the Internet, free!?! Maybe this is a published author with an online pen name?” Well now that thought is true.
I had to buy it. A real paper copy since I’ve only read her on my tablet screen so far. There’s just something so amazing to me about watching someone who seems very much like you (normal-ish, job, family, day to day life, read: not famous/wealthy/connected) take a hobby or skill that they do on the side for pleasure and make something tremendous and tangible from it. I love those successes. So if she sees this know, one of those book sale numbers in Connecticut was me!!
K, done gushing about a stranger I only creepily follow on the Internet. I promise I haven’t made a shrine in my closet or refrigerator poetry to her. Yet. *cough*
I have a book to read now. Kbye!
Hahaha! I’m in love with this song! Body posi, good sound, sass x 1,000, and a fun video to boot. My new jam.
