This is all about Love.

"At the root of all evil is a heart denied love."
Nani Power, The Sea of Tears
As difficult as it's been, I'm giving in to love stories. After Twilight, well... I didn't think it could get better than that, emotionally, so I tried to avoid it. Now, though, I've been struck with a yearning for literature that touches me, and I'm okay with it not being... classic. Not all literature can be. Starting a new array of books, and have decided that this year will not be about movies for me; it will be about reading. I'm so happy reading, and nothing makes me feel more accomplished. It's such a rare feat.
There is something about books that has been lost to this generation. In my opinion, no one really reads anymore. At least, not at my age level. I think there is something missing in the school system that should be teaching us to read everything, not just the "assigned reading" of school, then growing accustomed to hating everything with binding.

I'm sad that my nights are now so full. All I want to do is sit on my bed reading. I have no desire at all to watch TV or movies. The afternoons though... it's my happiest time of day. Quiet. Bright. Free.
