When I first made this blog, it was titled ‘Confessions of a Bibliophile.’ I titled it that because I wanted it to sound like Confessions of a Shopaholic or Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen which are both movies I love. However, I didn’t really confess…anything? At all. Ever. xD Though I have a new title now, I thought it would be interesting to do a post confessing things I have never admitted before (related to being a bibliophile of course!)
I couldn’t think of anything to post and this was the first thing I thought of. Quality content always, am I right?
I almost cried when a friend who borrowed my copy of Prisoner of Azkaban tore a bit of the cover.
Sometimes, I act like I’ve read a book even though I have no clue what it’s about.
I wrote my first “book” when I was 7. It was written, illustrated and published by moi. It was titled ‘Adventures of Carly, Marlee and Darcy’ (I was very creative with the names.) I tried to convince my neighbour to buy it for ten rupees.
For a long time, I used to use long words that I found in books while talking to people in school. Basically, I was a pretentious little shit.
Once, when I couldn’t think of what to write for a story writing assignment, I got “inspired” by a book that I had read (aka wrote the story in my own words). My teacher loved it. But I felt kind of guilty so I told her it wasn’t original. She was really, really disappointed.
I absolutely HATE it when someone borrows a book for a very long time, returns it only after I ask for it a million times and say “I didn’t get the time to read it” when they return it after like 28329 years. :]
When I was 8, my best friend and I decided to make our bookshelves into libraries because together, we had a lot of books. We thought it would be a great way to make money and even had a bunch of “business” meetings. Nobody wanted a membership.
In fourth grade, a story I wrote came out in the school newsletter. For a month, I introduced myself as a journalist. *facepalm*
My friend and I created a magazine in the 3rd grade highlighting our ‘problems’ as 8 year olds and how we could fix them. We both got certificates for it xD
So that’s all of my ‘confessions.’ Nothing scandalous at all haha 😛 All you found out is that I was an ambitious 8 year old!
I’m sorry for sort of disappearing for a bit. My phone stopped working this week and I had so many of my drafts and blog post ideas saved on it but they weren’t backed up. On top of that, my laptop had gone for servicing so I couldn’t really write anything. Now my laptop’s back and I’m going to remember all the things on my ‘blog post’ list and this time back it up!!!
Hope you’re having a lovely week ❤
