I’m going to be nice and not bore you into details of my job/internship searching.
Basically… I’m nearly done school, I just need 4 months worth of work experience related to HR before I graduate. Sooo… I’ve been applying to HR jobs (despite not having experiences) and applying to internships (which I found out there’s more account and engineering internships than HR).
Ugh, this reminds me of those months of being unemployed. However, getting a part time retail job is much easier than getting an entry-level job to start your career.
Anyways, to make this a fun post, I’ve stolen been tagged by Becci and her reading habits tag. And… as someone that looooves books, how can I pass up a books tag?!
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
This is going to sound odd… but I read in the dark, on my bed. It’s probably bad for my eyes (who cares, right?) but it keeps me focused on what I’m reading without falling asleep. I love reading in my bed but I fall asleep (even if it’s a great book!) because the bed’s just too comfy. When I’m dedicated to reading my book, then I’ll read it in a somewhat uncomfortable chair just so I won’t fall asleep. But, I do get a lot more reading done on my chair than on my bed.
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Bookmarks! I won’t fork out even $2 for a bookmark so most of mines are given when I purchase the book or if they’re just free. And by free, I mean… it’s a bookmark with an advertisement on it. I cannot fold the corners of my pages because “harming the book” makes me cringe.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter or certain number of pages?
I tend to stop after I’m done the chapter, UNLESS I’m forced to stop midway because of: 1) I’m on public transit and it’s my stop to get off, 2) I’m in class and break is over or someone talks to me, 3) I’m just so tired, I know I’m going to doze off in five seconds.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
Nope. I might have a drink occasionally, but I usually just sit and read.
Do you watch TV or listen to music while reading?
Nope. TV and music (and even people talking) interrupts my trains of thoughts/visualizations of the texts when I read. I can block out people’s voices, but I can’t block out music and TV. Especially the television!
One book at a time or several at once?
I used to be a ‘one book at a time’ girl but ever since I started Hitler, I began to read other books just to get a break from the massive book. I honestly didn’t know how big Hitler was (I have the ePub file) so when I realized I was getting tired of reading non-fiction, I turned to the hopeless romantic books for a break. Ever since then, I’ve been reading 2-3 books at a time and surprisingly still managing to keep track of plots and characters!
Reading at home or everywhere?
Everywhere else. I love reading at home but to be honest, I’d rather play the Sims or browse the internet than read my book. But, if I’m elsewhere, like at school, transit, etc., I’ll read nonstop.
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
In my head… who still reads out loud?!
Do you ever read ahead or skip pages?
Noooo! I may have done this back in elementary but not anymore. I don’t like spoilers.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
Not going to lie, keeping it new :3
Do you write in your books?
Here’s one of my deep dark confessions: I used to write fanfictions. And if you search hard enough… there’s some scattered across the internet. #insertembarrassedemoticon #pleasedontsearchforthem
