Last week I blogged about how I want to have a class outside sometime before I graduate…and this is somewhat of a continuation of that blog. It might sound strange…and it kind of is. So first, there are a few things that you need to understand.
- I never have free time.
- I read so much for class that I am usually burnt out on anything in book form.
- Since I don’t have free time and I read a lot more than I would like to already, I never read books.
I know, this is really sad. I used to love to read…back in my Accelerated Reader days in Elementary School. Then school kicked it up a notch and I haven’t had time to read ever since. Sometimes I will read books over breaks though, like over Thanksgiving when I read The Help, or over Spring Break when I read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I really loved reading both of these….and it made me realize that I actually do like reading…so I should probably try it more often. Hence, my new senior year goal….to read a book on the mall.
Since I am so used to spending my only free time napping or watching TV, the first step will be to just read. Then, once I get into that a little bit more…I might be able to drag myself off of my futon…and I’ll go outside. I know, it sounds like a next to impossible task (and it really is), but I think that I can do it. At least once…maybe?? Perhaps if I just remind myself of how much I loved reading on the beach over break, then it will be easier. I can try at least, I guess?
