I don't judge a book by it's cover,I actually enjoy reading them.
“Why do I read?
I just can’t help myself.
I read to learn and to grow, to laugh
and to be motivated.
I read to understand things I’ve never
been exposed to.
I read when I’m crabby, when I’ve just
said monumentally dumb things to the
people I love.
I read for strength to help me when I
feel broken, discouraged, and afraid.
I read when I’m angry at the whole
I read when everything is going right.
I read to find hope.
I read because I’m made up not just of
skin and bones, of sights, feelings,
and a deep need for chocolate, but I’m
also made up of words.
Words describe my thoughts and what’s
hidden in my heart.
Words are alive—when I’ve found a
story that I love, I read it again and
again, like playing a favorite song
over and over.
Reading isn’t passive—I enter the
story with the characters, breathe
their air, feel their frustrations,
scream at them to stop when they’re
about to do something stupid, cry with
them, laugh with them.
Reading for me, is spending time with a

You can never have too many.”
Today I met an older man at work, he told me I looked at peace. It took me years to be who I am today and I’m only 22 years old. I got tired of being angry and wasting my energy on anger, its emotionally and physically exhausting. When I feel annoyed I ask myself is it worth the headache and if its not I let it go. Like the saying goes “Arguing with a fool proves there are two.” - Doris Smith . I have not been angry in such a long time, why am I going to get angry over something that’s meaningless. I have learned that if you do not react the way the person is expecting you they are caught off guard and they will change the way the continue to speak to you. In other words if someone is screaming at me, I will answer them in a calm matter and respectfully as I can, that person then takes a breath apologizes for their tone and speaks to me calmly. I noticed that most people expect for others to answer in anger and when they don’t they see they were the fool. Being calm isn’t always easy but I’m not going to jeopardize my emotional well-being over something stupid.
Just heard this band and completely fell in love with them. My new favorite band and their album is currently the soundtrack to my life. They are going to be huge. This is what music is supposed to be. My ears and soul are happy.
"In a world that changes everyday, It’s easy to get lost along the way. In a world that’s never as it seems, Where people try to buy and sell their dreams Where people try to buy and sell their dreams
Yeah, it’s just the way it goes. Maybe you die young before you’re old Yeah, it’s just the way it is”
“There are dreamers and there are realists in this world, you think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not the opposite is true. See the dreamers need the realists to keep the dreamers from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists? Well without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.”
"So if you’re out there I swear to be good to you But I’m done lookin’, for my future someone Cause when the time is right You’ll be here, but for now Dear no one, this is your love song” #someday #dearnoone
