Who am I – CB

Well, hello there! πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—πŸ₯°

If you are on this page, reading this text, it means that somehow I grabbed your attention and you want to know more about me. Thank you for that! I put down a few words about me, thinking that if you know me a bit we might be able to connect and we could understand each other better.

When I initially started this blog I thought that I was going to write only about books. But in the meantime I realized that I have so much more to share than my opinion about books that I read. A few years ago I had a blog, which I deleted since, that was concentrated on books and life in general. I reached about 500 something followers and then…depression and anxiety hit me and I closed it all down. Some time later, when I started to feel better, I decided to come back online and since writing is part of me, this blog came to life. I still have a lot to work on, and I am far from 500 followers, but I know that this blog will not be closed down no matter what. Hence, I decided that a presentation page is needed.

So, who am I? If you read my blog you saw that my signature is “CB”. But who is “CB”? πŸ˜ŠπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

I am a 33 years old woman, living someplace in Canada, originally from Romania. I am a mother of beautiful 9 years old twin boys and even though I adore my kids I find that being a mother is the most exhausting thing I ever had to do in my life. Maybe because I can’t take a break from being a mother. πŸ€”πŸ˜œ

I love to read and write (obviously) and I also love to color and…sleep. 😏 For many years I was completely lost and I had no idea who I am or what I love and not love. I didn’t have a clue of who I was as a person which was very frustrating, and still is at times. By reading some books and articles about introversion, I realized that I am an introvert and somehow my life started to make more sense to me. Though I still get frustrated sometimes, because my way of being is so different from those around me, at least now I know that all the feelings and all my awkwardness are “normal”.

Some people might catalog me as being anti-social. I think I am just very selective with the people that I chose to be around me. Crowds and parties make me extremely tired and they give me anxiety. I can come to your party but, don’t feel offended if all of the sudden I pick up my stuff and leave. It’s really not you, it’s me. πŸ˜΄πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ˜Š

I don’t have many friends and if people stop talking to me I am not going to chase them. You see, I used to always worry that if people stop talking to me I might be alone at one point and I might miss them…until I realized that if they stop talking to me it’s really their choice and the best thing for me to do is respect their privacy. In the end I was always by myself in my hardest times and that only made me stronger. I don’t say that I don’t need people in my life, 😊 , I am saying that I’m ok if people decide to leave.

Books are my passion and those that know me well know that I ALWAYS carry a book with me. If for some strange reason I am not able to carry a physical book, don’t you worry ’cause there are some dozens…hundreds… πŸ˜…πŸ€·β€β™€οΈβ€πŸ“š of books on my kindle app in my phone. I don’t think that I have a specific favorite genre, I read mostly any type of book depending on my mood. What I can’t read though, no matter how hard I try, is books about and with detectives and crimes. I can’t!!!! If there is a detective involved, that’s it…don’t ask me why, it’s just the way it is.

This is it! This is who I am more or less. There are so many more things to say, but I might have to write a book about it and who might want to read a book about a book blogger?!

Fell free to say ‘Hi!’ and let me know a bit about yourself. If you have a blog let me know, I would probably love to follow you!

Thanks for reading! xoxo
