Blizzard And Smart Thinking

Hello Snowy People! 

For the last few days, the UK has been hit with pretty bad snow. It's been snowing on and off for days now and I swear it's closer to a blizzard than not. It's snowing insane! But it's very pretty. Like depressingly pretty. Beth and I really want to go to Japan and see it snow while watching cherry blossoms. Yes, we know it's not possible because cherry blossom doesn't happen in winter. Usually anyway. But hey, a girl (or girls) can dream! 


Picture of the view in front of my house again. Actually, it's from my room on the 2nd floor. Sorry for the blueness of the picture, it's the best I could do with editing. (I am awful at editing.) But it's better than how it originally was.


This is the back yard. The mini trampoline is just hilarious! You can see how insane the snow have gotten in the past few days. I was so tempted to go outside and scoop some up but I decided otherwise. It's so fricking cold outside. I had to blast the radiator to stay warm inside, with a hot water bottle and a hot drink. 

I am probably the only person who goes to Waterstones and go to the Smart Thinking section and look through the books in it. I found some really interesting ones but decided on 2. So I ordered them on Book Depository 2 weeks ago and they arrived a few days ago. Hooray! I don't have a clue why I am suddenly randomly into thinking books now. I do like seeing how things impact each other and changes but books.... still no idea why I would be into them. But it is interesting. I do have a whole list of books I have found and written down. However, I just got the 2 I was most interested in to start with.

I got The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell and Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman. 


I am currently reading The Tipping Point. I think I saw someone's blog post about it on the internet and how the book really changes how you see things, which got me really interested. My version of the book is a tiny bit weird because it's slightly smaller in size than normal paperback books, not that it makes a difference.

P.S. Any of you play The Sims 3? I just started playing it yesterday, since Beth gave it to me. It's so good! It's like the first game I have played on the PC in ages. I spent like 4 hours on it but it was totally worth it. So much fun!
