My current favorite author is Sarah J. Maas. She's been a huge influence on my own writing. I also love Ursula K. Le Guin, George R.R. Martin, Marion Zimmer Bradley, and Tamora Pierce. All fantasy authors of course.

Fatty gained weight, bc she can't control her fat face.  Stupid cow.  I was tiny, and nearing perfection.  Then I went and fucked it all up, gained weight, got even fatter.  I'm gross.

I am old fashioned, I like Mary Higgins Clark.  She is not the greatest and her novels are predictable but I like her. 

 

I recently read, 'We Are Okay" by Nina Lacour and was blown away.  I had checked it out from the library and half way in I knew I wanted to own it so I bought it immediately. 


Weight: 

SW: 161 (from DR APPT 2/22/18)

CW: 155.4 153.4  153.2 152.8 150.8  148.6

148 147 146 145.6 145 144.4 146.2 144.8

143.2 142.00 (on 3/20/19)  *** Received a compliment today that my face looks thinner and I am "looking good". 

141 (on 3/22/19) 140.6 (3/23/19) 139.6 (4/19/19) 138 

5/14/19 = 140.2 (had a back slide but starting new job and will get back on track).

7/21/19 = 141.8 (ACK)... I can never stay under 140....7/26/19 138.6  8/3/19 136.6

 

8/5/19 136.2

 

Highest weight: 178

Lowest weight: 110

"Stable" weight: 135-140

 

Goal = 115 pounds (I want to match the BMI of someone I know).

OMMFFG right?? ugh I wrote my thesis on him and still loved him which is saying something lol

KAFKA On the shore omfg what a book it's soo good. And I just finished 1Q84 and I loved it soo much. I actually haven't read the elephant vanishes but im super excited to!
 

My faves are definitely kafka and 1Q84. Sputnik Sweetheart was also super good. I also read his nonfiction book, Underground: the tokyo gas attack which was a super interesting read as well!

 

have you had a chance to read his newest book, Killing commendatore? I just ordered it and I'm so excited. I'm definitely gonna add the elephant vanishes to my order as well :D
