Thank you @Eggs for the tag :D https://www.litsy.com/web/post/2628010
🎥 I do love going out to the movies! Cozily watching from home can be nice too though.
✍ Well, since I can't say reading (ha ha!), I'd have to say writing :) Which I guess is pretty similar, but hopefully it still counts!

The photo is from a colourful display of cloth-bound books in a nearby bookstore 📚

DO NOT ASSEMBLE.
For the journey is long and the road leads to darkness.'”

“‘Welcome to the Bureau of Supernatural Affairs.‘
An enormous hall greets us, and I gasp – it‘s filled with all kinds of strange sights. A flock of fairies twinkles past like floating Christmas lights (…). Witches zip by overhead on brooms (…). What in the world have I gotten myself into?”
