    I Am At a Loss...

      Am I just...odd? Am I too old? Am I, indeed, not old enough?  What is wrong with me? I really cannot get the concept of Harry Bloody Potter! Granted, I haven't read all the books...I really don't want to fall asleep that long...but what I have read has been pretty...

    Whatever Happened to Don't Judge a Book By It's Cover...

    I'm a Harry Potter fan or well, I was until the series finished. I started reading Harry Potter when I was ten years old. It taught me how to read and it gave me something, a world I could relate to, a world I could disappear into to avoid my misery of the real world. Now, you're...
