I read a lot of books. Sometimes I have read an entire series more than once (and in some cases, more than twice). It started with my parents making me read Harry Potter instead of the 4 self-help books I had on my nightstand. Best therapy I've ever had was in that entire series, followed by the Twilight series, the House of Night series, and now starting the Feather series. I'm completely into anything that seems opposite from reality. If my reality is one that is painful, stressful, boring, or even great, I love to read these books. My life consists of many stress factors. The books I read keep my imagination going, which I feel keeps me young. (Don't argue this with me...it has to be why I'm so immature sometimes). They also clear my mind of the daily regiment of pretty much every little thing that I might be responsible for. Who can't love that?
So, with all of my reading I've done, I've also done a lot of writing. Clearly. Ultimately, I hope to write a novel of my own to include my own silly imagination and help others fall asleep with fun things on their minds at night. To start, I'm looking at having this fun little hobby published. I actually contacted a publishing company. Geez, if anything, I could have a bunch printed off that would be for just family and friends. Or, I can think bigger (which I always do) and think it can go beyond my loved ones. My brother is published in the science fields for some of the research he did at the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center. I'd like to be published, too, but without having to poke sharp objects at cute little pets.
Well, that's something I'm working on.
On another nerdy note, Farrah and I watch the Harry Potter movies... every... day. She is a huge fan. As am I. It, at least, has to be playing in the background. She wants it to be playing in my car, on our main TV when we get home, and now while Mike is out of town, upstairs in my room EVERY NIGHT. I don't mind too much because I love the movies, but it is getting to the point where she and I can both recite the lines. Now, that's silly. So, as I type this I'm watching the first Harry Potter with Farrah and when it's time for us to go to bed, we'll watch #2, #3, #4, and #5. That's what we do. Also, New Moon is coming out next week on DVD and I can hardly stand it!!!
