date a girl who reads
I recently learned about this series of articles about which women to date and why.
Why You Should Date A Girl Who Reads
You Should Date An Illiterate Girl
Date A Girl Who Writes
A bunch of stereotypes and tropes if you ask me. I've had a library card since before age 12. I don't sniff old books because the mildewy scent can trigger a migraine. And, no non-dairy creamer for me. Give me butter!!
Besides the sexist nature of these articles, I appreciated the focus on intellectual pursuits.
I love to read, but lately I'm having a hard time focusing. I'm not sure if it's because I picked books which aren't suitable for my mind or if I'm finally succumbing to the millennial disease of too much input / distractions. I sure hope it's a temporary situation because I miss all my friends (old as well as yet to be discovered) in my books.
