Current reads & financial planning, a not-so-lazy Sunday morning. I painted my nails yesterday so I had to make sure and get at least one photo in before I wreck them as usual

If you're spending your weekend watching A Series of Unfortunate Events, make sure to check out my last blog post about my experiences rereading the series (link in bio)
Gregory Maguire work creates a fantasy world so rich and vivid that we will never look at Oz the same way again. I have always been interested in the Broadway musical Wicked so once I saw this book on the shelf I had to buy it. Plus the pages are green so it's an eye catcher.
Gregory Maguire crea un mundo de fantasía tan rica y viva que nunca vamos a mirar a Oz de la misma manera. He estado siempre interesada en el Musical de Broadway Wicked así que una vez que vi este libro en el estante tenía que comprarlo. Las páginas son verdes por lo que es un atrapa ojos.
Acabou o mistério! Wicked é minha leitura atual (mas li muito pouco. Culpa de Westworld).
Comprei na bienal de Minas Gerais (2016) e na época ele era lançamento aqui, mas a história já faz um super sucesso nos musicais da Broadway e agora em São Paulo (alguém assistiu?)
O livro traz uma nova perspectiva da Terra de Oz. Ele é mais focado na vida de Elfaba, a bruxa má do Oeste. A improvável amizade com Glinda (a bruxa boa) e quando elas se apaixonam pelo mesmo homem - se tornando rivais.
I had an anxiety attack yesterday. I did everything I could to get ready to go out last night to a TKE event with Andrew: I listened to good music, I took deep breaths...I changed clothes at least eight times. Nothing fit. My hair was terrible. My makeup was fab but I felt ugly and stupid and worthless. When Andrew gave me an out, I cried half my makeup off and changed back into a sweatshirt. Great, heaving sobs. I texted him that I was "a failure and a coward," and I meant it.
Y'all, this hasn't happened in a while.
Then I read this paragraph in Gregory Maguire's Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister this afternoon. Oh, to be a nail on the hoof of a horse! Something insensible and dull for a change. To not worry so much about myself and my place in the world.
This mental illness struggle is ongoing and requires vigilance. I have to take care of myself, remember to breath, and remind myself that I MATTER.
Guess what? You matter, too. #mentalhealthawareness#livingwithdepression#anxiety#literature#bookworm#gregorymaguire
