ravenlee But why is Celia so awful too? Do she and Rosy share a brain, so if Rosy is using all of the will and stubbornness then Celia has to be a doormat? I mean, I think James is being a jerk, but Celia encouraging it…ugh. Everyone sucks. 1w
Addison_Reads @ravenlee "everyone sucks" describes how I've felt through most of this book. ? 6d

A day late here... but here are my photos from the last decade for #MayBeNow #PartyTime

This is the decade I started using Goodreads to track my reading, and Litsy talk to and meet more readers. My niece and nephew both graduated from HS, I chopped off my hair (now it‘s growing longer again), I added in some of the movies and TV shows I was obsessed with. If I take out politics and the larger societal surreal mess, it wasn‘t a bad decade.

Cinfhen I‘m loving these collages....and yesssssss to Big Bang Theory 🙌🏻 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Great photos! Who‘s that other person?? 🤪 (Oh, it‘s me ... making a cameo.) 💕 3y

BarbaraTheBibliophage @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Go us! That was a fun night! 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BarbaraTheBibliophage Yes, that was The Color of Law, such a great book....it‘s so weird thinking about how packed it was that night now. I saw they are posting their author events online now...it‘s a shame because I know they were planning on having Madeline Miller sometime this year and I world have loved to see her in person. 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Riveted_Reader_Melissa They are doing events on Crowdcast. Madeleine Miller was on a couple of weeks ago. I think there‘s probably a replay! Found it - https://www.crowdcast.io/e/circe (edited) 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BarbaraTheBibliophage It was online and I STILL Missed it 🤣 I‘ve even been checking their emails regularly to see who was coming up each month. I‘ll see if I can find it online, still disappointed I couldn‘t get my book signed in person though. 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Frustrating! I follow them on FB but you can also set up a Crowdcast account so you get notifications. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BarbaraTheBibliophage I will definitely work on that tomorrow, I should be catching tons of author events while everything is more open and online, but somehow I‘ve been less engaged there. 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Another good one happening over the next few weeks is the Gaithersburg MD Book Festival. That‘s on YouTube. 3y

#MayBeNow #partytime @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB
My 2010‘s have been mostly about chasing my tail after these two yahoos, lots of trips to Disney and Chicago - two of our favorites, watching the Cubs finally win the World Series, running (and walking) many 5k, forging countless relationships on social media with like minded people who knit, run or read - people that I struggle to find IRL because...I‘m a happy introvert 😂

Cinfhen Fabulous photo and who needs more ?? #TrulyBlessed ♥️ 3y
peaknit @Cinfhen AMEN 😊 I feel like I have an overflowing cup honestly, I keep IRL friends balanced at a small number so I can try to be better with those I enjoy rather than spreading out thin among too many I don‘t. (edited) 3y
JaclynW I agree with @Cinfhen ! 3y

#MayBeNow #PartyTime | The 2010s were quite a whirlwind!

2010 - moved to Wisconsin 🧀
2012 - had our first son 🍼
2013 - moved to Utah ⛰
2014 - had our second son 🍼
2015 - moved to Tennessee 🪕 and made a permanent (I think) home

PS. I miss my super short hair.

BarbaraBB The short hair is cool but I like the long hair too 😍 3y
squirrelbrain Wonderful pictures! ❤️ 3y
TheLibrarian Both look good on you! I love short hair except during a pandemic... 3y

britt_brooke @BarbaraBB Thank you! 🥰 3y
peaknit Are you in Milwaukee? NVM I can read lol! Love the short hair, I can‘t grow mine out! Gorgeous collage👍🏻 (edited) 3y
britt_brooke @squirrelbrain Thank you! 💚 3y
britt_brooke @TheLibrarian Thanks! 🥰 I love your hair! I was always bad about getting it cut often enough, but I loved it. 3y
britt_brooke @TrishB Thank you! 💚 3y
britt_brooke @peaknit 😉😉 We really miss Wisconsin, except for the winters, of course. And thanks! 💚 It took many frustrating tries - and years - to get my hair shoulder length, lol. 3y
TheLibrarian @britt_brooke Aww thanks! I‘ve been bleaching my hair for years so I have to stay on top of the hair cutting game. Right now my roots are really showing 😱 3y
britt_brooke @TheLibrarian I feel like that should just become a new trend at this point! 😂 3y
peaknit I‘ve made my hairdresser promise me she will not let me say I want to try growing it out. Ever. Again. 3y
Cinfhen Fabulous photos xxx I like the addition of the eyewear 💚 3y
Cinfhen And the solar eclipse was SUCH A BIG DEAL that I can‘t believe I totally forgot about it 🙊 (edited) 3y
britt_brooke @Cinfhen The eclipse was one of the neatest things I‘ve ever seen! We were in the line of totality. Took my breath away. 3y
JaclynW Great pictures! Busy decade! I forgot about the eclipse too. It was cool. I'm glad you have found your forever home. I live just north of Salt Lake City (and have all my life), so at one time we were close! 3y
britt_brooke @JaclynW Utah is so beautiful! We lived in Holladay for 2 years. I miss the mountains. 3y
DebinHawaii Fabulous collage. Love the black and white too! 🖤 3y
JaclynW @britt_brooke Utah is pretty great! I love the mountains too! It's one of the things I miss most when I travel to other places. Holladay is a nice area. I'm glad you enjoyed your time here.😊 3y

I‘m more of a rocker but I checked the Hot 100 Billbiard songs from 2010-2019 and picked songs I could bike to for today‘s playlist. #partytime #MaYbeNow @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB

DieAReader @peaknit Any chance you would share the link? 🧐😉🎶 (edited) 3y
BarbaraBB I‘d like that too. I love the songs I see so far! 3y

I‘m sure I missed some, it was hard to find what was actually released in the last 10 years! I found the main theme was strong women: Lizzo, P!nk, Kesha, and Roar by Katy Perry will forever symbolize 2016 for me.



britt_brooke Royals made my cut, too! Great list. 💚 3y
Cinfhen I almost added Royals!! I played that song over & over and who could forget Miley on that wrecking ball 💕💕💕 3y
BarbaraBB This list brings back memories to a time and a world that seem so far away now!! 3y
DebinHawaii Excellent list!! 😍 3y

I find the older I get the less new stuff I listen to as I like my old comforts! Like the other Mums of my generation, this is very influenced by my kids ❤️
#partytime #maybenow

britt_brooke Muse 💚 3y
Cinfhen Thanks for sharing, it was worth waiting for 😊🎶🙌🏻 3y

Velvetfur I don't even know most of those songs, haha! I like Linkin Park though, and the few Bat For Lashes songs I've heard 👍 3y
Caroline2 I was dancing round the kitchen, emptying the dishwasher to Bad Guy the other day. 😆 Tune!!!! 🎶 💃🏻 3y
Cupcake12 This is so similar to my fave songs at the mo...my daughter has introduced me to Billie Eilish...Bizarre but brilliant 🎧 🎵 3y
Bookjunkie57 As I spend time letting my teenaged nieces and nephews pick music we listen to I definitely understand why my dad called my music noise. 👵🏾👵🏾👵🏾 (edited) 3y
BarbaraBB You did it! Thanks ❤️. Indeed Billie Eilish comes from my kids too but Muse and 21 Pilots, Numan and Linkin Park that‘s you of course 💕 (edited) 3y
DebinHawaii Adele! 😍 3y
batsy Nice to see Muse in there! And Diamonds is one of my favourite Rihanna songs 💎 3y
karasu13 The 1975 and Placebo are excellent choices! 3y

Cinfhen Such a great list....I think you‘re gym enthusiasm shines through!!! I like the Alt/Rock vibe ✊🏽❣️Thanks for sharing....I‘ll be listening to this one 🎶 3y
britt_brooke @Cinfhen Nailed it! Most of these are from my cardio playlist. 🚴🏻‍♀️💪🏻 And alternative sucked me in back in the 90s and has been my favorite since. 🤘🏻 3y
BarbaraBB Love the alternative vibes and Florence of course ❤️ 3y

batsy I think Drumming Song is one of my favourites by her. And I love the Bird and the Bee! 💜 3y
britt_brooke @batsy I was absolutely obsessed with her first album! And I loooove the Bird and the Bee‘s Hall & Oates covers. 3y
DebinHawaii Love The Bird and The Bee! 😍 (edited) 3y
Billypar No matter how much it was played the song Royals never got old for me- that made my list too. 3y
britt_brooke @Billypar 100% agree! It‘s rare that I don‘t get tired of a popular song. Royals is so catchy and chill at the same time. 3y
vivastory I have Macklemore & Lorde on my playlist 👏 3y
britt_brooke @vivastory 🙌🏻 I tried to look at your list, but the link wouldn‘t work for me. 😩 3y
vivastory @britt_brooke I fixed it. I forgot a letter 😬 3y
britt_brooke @vivastory Yay! Nice list. Regina Spektor. 💚 Her song “Better” is one of my all-time favorites. 3y
