    Gettin' Lazy

    ...before i used to read at least 4 books a week. Now i barely read one a fortnight and even get impatient reading that. I skip through to essential plot details and sometimes to the end, then i give up. i wish i could go back to enjoying reading again

    Just a Little Peek

    I do this when I really want to know what happens, but don't have very much time to read.  I tell myself that I'm only going to take a little peek to satisfy my curiousity, and then I'll put the book away.  But I always end up reading way more than I planned, and before...

    It's easier for me to pretend to be okay. Then it is to find someone who will listen and understand why I'm not okay. Something's are just too hard to say out loud to people
