     I'm addicted. I can't go without reading, literature, fiction, research, spirituality, anything except the news. I'm nearly as addicted to reading as to writing. Weaving emotions into strings of words that make up the blanket of escapism. I love languages and I...

    Words To Me

    Words to me weave another world. They make it seem like I'm another person doing some amazing thing or living some interesting life. They pulled me in who knows how long ago and haven't let me out since. I'm addicted to books, and I'll never overdose.

    Do You Not...?

    I grew up in not the most ideal conditions for a person who becomes highly literate, but that did not stop me from not only getting good at reading, but burying my nose in a book whenever I could. I also learned how things worked, how to fix things, did chores, learned to take...
