What I really don’t like in life is labeling. Now, I think we people are pros at labeling each other whether it’s because someone looks certain way or because of their interests. We put each other in a small container with a label on it thinking that this is who we are but I think people are so much more than just a label. It always amazed me how we’re able to label beautiful blond girl as a bimbo or a person with glasses on as a nerd. A person is not just one thing. We are all the shades and much more. Now, I don’t hate the label bookworm because let’s be honest, I am one, though it always drove me crazy how that term was always connected with negative meaning and certain myths that are sometimes not even true.
For some reason, there’s this myth about people who love to read that they are ugly or rather that girls who love to read don’t use make up. That’s big stupidity in my opinion. I know lots of girls who love books as much as make up. I adore books, they are my babies, but I also like to experience with eyeshadows and lipsticks are my weakness. I don’t know when or who created this myth that bookworms have to wear big glasses and baggy jumpers. That’s such a stereotype. And even if someone wears glasses and baggy jumpers, what’s so wrong about it? I mean, big jumpers are really cozy, I’d live in them forever.
Again, I don’t think a bookworm has to be necessarily shy. I am, but that’s my personality and it has nothing to do with the fact that I love books. Some people may love knitting and they can be shy as well. I also know bookworms who are extroverts and go party every Friday so here you go stereotype, right in your face.
Did you see the amount of characters a bookworm meets while reading a book? Now, multiply it with a hundred books in a year. I bet that’s more than an average person meets in real life. Now, in all seriousness, I don’t think we are lonely people. Bookworms make friends among each other. Did you see bookstagram or blogosphere? There are great numbers of people who love reading books and they become friends because of this. We are definitely not people who sit at home all day doing nothing, talking to no one because we just read books. We have lives, guys!
Being a bookworm apparently means we don’t exercise, we are not healthy because we just sit and read. Well, let me destroy this myth. Many bookworms actually enjoy running or other forms of sport and they actually live healthy lifestyle. This one just makes me mad because it doesn’t make sense… none of these make sense. Who created them? I want to find him and show him what books can really do.
Ha, ha, ha. That was a good one. Oh… that wasn’t a joke? Well, what can I say… maybe that this myth can apply to anybody? I mean, I am a big joker. Let me show you.
Do you know what an ocean told the other ocean?Nothing, it just waved.
I imagine you’re now laughing out loud and your tummy is hurting from it, am I right?
Excuse me, how can you speak so badly about my babies? They are not homeless things, they live in lovely bookshelves and they know how to behave. They don’t do any mess in my room. Yes, they like to collect dust because they think it’s fun to play with it, but other than that, they are good babies. They are the jewels of our room. Not only they are excellent companions for long winter nights, but they also make our rooms beautiful! How can we repay this?
Now, this is not true either. We can talk about weather or about the stupidity of some people. We can talk about the Supernatural show and how I haven’t seen any episode of the new series yet which is tragic. We can talk about many things it just happens that one of them is the new book I’m currently reading and I’m totally obsessing over the hot male character and I just want to share my enthusiasm. Is that so bad? Also, I’m hoping to convert you to bookaholism.
I mean, who doesn’t? Yes, we may buy copious amount of books but we are investing our money into something magical and beneficial for our soul and I don’t think that can be considered as wasting money. We educate ourselves with books, we travel through different worlds, we experience the craziest things you can ever imagine… for that price, I think it’s a bargain. But people who love games are wasting their money too, girls waste their money on makeup and clothes, we all waste our money for something so give us a break human.
First off, why should nerd have negative meaning? Someone’s a slacker, someone’s a nerd. Do what suits you. I don’t care if I’m a nerd because yes, I’d like to be intelligent, I’d like to think that books made my brain huge because you know what? Intelligence is sexy.
Said the person with his smartphone glued to his hands and eyes never leaving the screen? Yeah, thanks. Can you believe that people told me not to read the book because it’s rude and I should pay attention to the guests in our living room because I only see my distant family once a year but most of them are playing some stupid game on their phones. Why is book so much worse than the phone? I at least am doing something beneficial for my brain and soul instead of scrolling mindlessly through the facebook feed. Urgh.
