Taking up book reading

Post title self-explanatory.

I am not particularly extremely inclined to anything, though I just happen to know about anime more than an average person/anime newbie does and I happen to really love listening to music that I can talk passionately about my favorite artists. But for sure, the way I am now, I am not what someone you can consider a bookworm or a bookish person. It’s not that I don’t like reading, though I am too lazy to read too much texts.  I don’t read much books, much of that is because I don’t have plenty of books in my house and I don’t invest in books. I even felt proud of not being a reader.

A musical encounter

This little story happened last October 28th at the waiting area just outside Kalimudan Student Center (the sort of canteen in our university). It was just past 5:00PM when I walked on the path beside the said area. Suddenly, a beautiful melody played through the air. It came from the instrument I’ve long adored. The violin.

I turned to my left, and saw a female student, about the same age as me, sitting by the table alone. She was there, tapping her left foot to set the pace of the melody she played with her hands. Her graceful movements and poise was almost a rare sight in our institution. The sounds that reverberated tugged my heart and told me to stop.

Of course, her movement was not like this, but aaah, Sherlock ❤
