*Sighs deeply* I seem to be getting less and less reading-friendly this week, despite picking some great books and spending my free moments (like when I'm eating lunch) watching Bout of Books videos and other stuff from my favourite BookTubers. IT SHOULD BE SO INSPIRING, but then the second I switch off and go back to my book I end up drifting again... Oh well. Two more days, might as well make the most of it! :)

Today #insixwords: The opium trade is HISTORICALLY MASSIVE.
Notes: Okay, so, not such a bad day after all. It took me a while to get motivated, but I read a chapter of The Day of the Triffids over lunch and then this afternoon knuckled down and got stuck into the rather shocking more recent-historical chapters of Opium. So many jaw-dropping statistics and clandestine authority alliances, it's been quite the surprise... Anyway, technically my entire stack of library books is due back on Monday, so that's a good incentive for me to crack on with it, just in case it won't renew come Monday morning. My sister spent a while slumped in my room like a dead bumblebee, eating my Christmas chocolates and playing on her phone, so that hindered progress somewhat, but I didn't mind really! Also, I finally passed that Candy Crush level I've been stuck on. So there's that. And I watched the final episode of Masters of Sex, which was nearly two hours long but well worth it. Quite a productive Saturday, all things considered!
Quote of the day: "'You've got to grow a hide,' I told myself. 'Got to. It's either that or stay permanently drunk." - The Day of the Triffids
Sooooo, THIS IS IT, DUDES. One more day to go! ARE WE FEELING STRONG? Ready to read the shit out of Sunday? *waves pompoms enthusiastically* WE CAN DO IT! :)
