Okay-so my hair obsession has continued. I am now regressing and thinking maybe I should just bob it even shorter as a buffer zone in between a pixie cut.
Also-I have finally made the big leap and purchased a Kindle e-reader (gen 3). I haven't received it yet-the photo above is from Amazon. However, I am sooo excited to get it. I never thought I would get one, because of my dislike for all things techy (heh-but I also bought an Ipod not too long ago too). But I think it's okay to embrace the new, while still keeping in touch with the past. What I mean is, with my Ipod, I use it for it's portability (teaching yoga classes, plane trips ...), but I still love my record player and cd's in my car. The same goes for my books. I LOVE my books (I was an English major-I work at a bookstore, am certified to teach English in high school, not to mention my library stints). That said, my books own me. I have no space in my house for anything, because I have so many books-and I can't part with them. Each and every one of them remind me of the time period when I read the book. For example-Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone-I had braces, wore mini braids in my hair, phat pants, worked at the local library as the Teen Reading Programmer, first season of survivor (where I ate corn on the cob as I watched every episode), and had numerous boy troubles.
My expectations of the Kindle:
- Spend less money on books
- Read More
- Less weight to carry around (since I bring at least one book to work with me, sometimes more)
- Less space for traveling
- Will relieve some space issues in my house
Anyway-I feel slightly nerdy about this e-book thing, and at the same time I also feel moderately hip.
