Back To Basics

As a kid, I loved to read. I would sit and read on the library floor for hours and then go home and read some more. But as I got older, I made excuses not to read.

Piano (not really). Cheerleading practice. Friends. Movies. Parties. School (not really). Parties. Work. Parties. Gym.

Now I’ve come full circle. Reading has been a source of comfort and I can’t imagine my days without reading. I read before I go to bed, on weekend mornings while eating breakfast, and on breaks from studying. Maybe it’s because I live alone. Maybe it’s because I don’t have cable. Or maybe I’m getting back to basics and focusing on things that I truly love to do. I’ll take the latter.

Promises

Some people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them, I said.

Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That’s what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.

– The Fault in Our Stars

And that’s what I did. I kept my promise.
