If I were a librarian, this is the kind of outfit I would wear to work. :P I'd spend all day sitting among musty old tomes and enjoying their aroma. <3 Haha. I've always liked the smell of old books. *shrug*
I've talked to my partner about this on a number of occasions. I think there will always be a place in society for books. He thinks that physical books will soon become a thing of the past and that everything will be digital. That may be true. If so, I rue the day, to be honest. :F I mean there are obvious benefits to digitizing books, but I guess there's still something artificial and sterile about the whole thing. I can't bring myself to read anything on a Kindle. I won't even read a book on my phone.
There's just something about being able to hold a book; feel the pages between your fingers as you turn them; hear the crinkle of the pages in the spine; etc. It's hard to explain. All I can say is that I've loved books ever since I can remember. I was always tucked away in my bedroom reading a book when I was a kid. My books were such a comfort to me. I could pick them up at any time and immediately be someplace else. So, I find not being able to read a book, because I've run out of battery life to be just bizarre. Heh. You'll never have that problem with a physical book. If you drop it, it won't shatter. <3
Anyway, I've always been kind of stuck in the past about certain things. Books, video games, clothing. The older the better. Hehe. Ah, speaking of that! I managed to wear a mostly vintage outfit! Huzzah! :D
As I was walking down the sidewalk with my partner, a woman on her bike took notice. She said that I looked as if I was from the 40's. Then she explained that she was doing some sort of photography project for a class and she asked if she could take my photo with her vintage camera. I didn't have any problem with it. So, she went into her backpack and took out a portable tripod. I thought: 'Woah. This lady is prepared.' Haha. So, yeah. I ended up getting my photo taken twice. I was so nervous. I couldn't breathe. Can you believe it? I take photos all the time, but when a stranger did it, I was like: o_O
I'm a goober. >_< Haha. Anyway, I'm curious about how the pictures turned out on her vintage camera. I hope she gets a good grade in her class, too. Hehe. Yep. OK, I'm done yappin'. See you next time!
