Inside Kimmy's Mind » Day Off!

Day Off!

I had last Friday off and decided to go on an adventure. I was on a quest to find a green skirt for my costume as well as making a visit to my public library so I can get a library card and start checking out books instead of buying books I have no intention of reading/keeping.

At the moment I’ve decided to check out audio and ebooks vs hardcopy books. I’m actually worried I’ll destroy a library book by accident. I’m not the kindest to my personal books whilst I’m out and about. Things spill on/tear/get folded while being lugged around in my bags so it’s not a safe place for books. I don’t mean to, but it happens.  But lately I’ve noticed that I purchase the book and then either finish it and don’t really like it enough to keep it, or don’t even like it enough to finish reading it. -.- Sad.

To make some attempt at keeping this cycle under control I knew I would have to combat it with getting a library card and start checking out books instead. We shall see how well this goes, but I plan on doing my best. While waiting for stores to open I shot some great photos of the area. I love my new camera! It makes me want to make more videos and take more photos. I take it with me everywhere on the off chance I will take a photo or vlog or something. It’s exciting and I love it.

The library finally opened and I was able to get that card. I recently found my first library card from when I was a kid. I remember when Mom took me to the library to get it too, I remember her signing the back for me in her beautiful writing. Sadly, I lost that first card and had to go in and get a new one. This one I have kept since then, it has my terrible scratch handwriting. Anyway, so now I have a Houston Library card and now I can check out books for free!

I’m still testing out my camera and trying to learn how it works and whatnot so bear with me while I learn. Do you have a library card? I read somewhere, someone had said they think libraries should be closed down. How sad! I hope that doesn’t happen.  Anyway, I’ll update again soon- but check out my you tube videos for more stuff. 🙂 If you want to.

Thanks for reading and commenting. <3

    Ahhhh, I nearly bought the G7X last June but opted for my DSLR instead! Can’t wait to see more photos and Youtube videos with it 🙂

    @Eena, I’m loving it! I really wanted something small body and since I’m still a photographer newbie I figured this would be better for me. No regrets!

    Glad to hear that you love your new camera! I bet your signature on the library card isn’t too bad! Dan and I actually found our first library cards a while ago. Turns out we bought got library cards on the same year as each other in like 2003 (we didn’t know each other in elementary school but we lived in the same town and went to the same library). It was a big coincidence. Hope you enjoy all the books you’ll be borrowing!

    I have an insane amount of love for my local libraries and am a vocal supporter of them – I hope your membership continues to bring you joy – and exciting new books!
