This list makes me feel a little more accomplished with my reading habits, but the sad reality is that I just happened to have read a lot of this list by chance. In the grand list of books to read, my numbers would be appalling.
It’s so unbelievably self centred and attention seeking when people make a point of telling you they are upset to make you interested but then don’t tell you whats wrong when you get worried about them. It’s rude. If you’re going to worry someone about your state of mind, and pretend that you value their support and advice, at least have the decency to reply when they ask whats going on. It makes me so disinterested in your life, it’s like crying wolf and so many people I know do it. If you don’t want my support, don’t come to me and make a specific point of telling me how bad your life is. So many of my friends deserve my time and attention, and I’ll give it to anyone who genuinely wants it.
yea sure sounds great :)

Good evening people of tumblr. My name is Lyvia Alexandra Aylward-Davies, I am 21 years old living alone in Greenwich, South East London. I am not very tall, I am an illustration student and I work on and off as a teaching assistant at a school. I am a Christian but I’m struggling to find a church I’m happy with in my location. I have a pet snake called Pythagoras, and that is probably the most interesting fact about me. My father is a renowned geneticist and embryologist and my mother is a psychotherapist. I’m lucky to be sane and childless, all things considered. That’s me.
