Day 04: Something that is part of your routine that you enjoy.
What is this routine of which you speak? I always enjoy teatime, and sleeping in, but I wouldn’t consider that a routine. I’m not a creature of habit. Teatime is when I desire another cuppa, and sleeping in can mean anything from a later Skype devotions to going back to bed after family worship.
The only real routine I have are precisely those: family worship with my family and devotions with David. Every morning, every evening unless prevented by uncontrollable circumstances. I used to whinge about taking the time out of “my day” or “my plans” for us all to gather and pray, sing, and read scripture as a family, but now it’s one of the things I most look forward to every day. It’s something to count on. Everyone puts aside their gaming, studying, or other activities to be together in the Word.
On a side note, I know that I missed two days of posting, but Monday really kicked my butt. I had a panic attack Sunday night, barely any sleep before my shift Monday morning, and then an emotional roller coaster of a day. Yesterday, I spent about three and a half hours total at my new doctor’s office, and today I’m getting blood work and x-rays done. So thus my excuses for missing my updates!
Favourite Book From a Series
Inkspell, of the Inkheart Trilogy. It’s been a while since I read the trilogy, but I’m fairly certain this was the one with the most nail-biting, heart-wrenching, tear-inducing storytelling and action sequences. This trilogy as a whole is incredible. It’s especially fantastic for a writer because it deals with characters coming alive and entering stories and delves into the thought provoking powers of creation that a writer has. I think the last book, Inkdeath, took the characters in directions I wasn’t fully satisfied with, and the first book, though amazing, wasn’t quite as dark and therefore not as epic in its triumphs.
Writing this makes me want to read the trilogy again.
A Song that Makes You Sad
Promise – You Who Came From the Stars OST
No one does emotional singing like Koreans. This one is especially gut wrenching for me because the context is someone who may have to leave the love of his life for an indefinite period because he’ll most likely die if he stays on earth, and he sings it to her while they sit by the fireside and talk about having a large family, and IT’S THE SADDEST THING EVER, OKAY?!?! And yes, that voice is the lead actor. Koreans. They can do it all.
The other song is Korean, too. Big surprise. It’s even sadder if you know Boys Over Flowers.
