“Utopia- A place that exists only in the imagination and where everything is perfect.”
- I enjoy being alone, sometimes I go as far as believing I’m just like Madeline Whittier in the novel “Everything, Everything”. The only difference between myself and Madeline is that I don’t have a fatal disease, I just happen to have very strict and overprotective parents.
I’ve always been at home, haven’t traveled outside my province not even neighboring cities. So I’m not used to people as much. I recall this one incident in preschool where I was asked to stand up and say who my best friend was, I stood there for a good hour or two until my teacher gave up and told me to sit down. Entering my teenage years I found the best word I could identify with the most “INTROVERT” and it’s been that way ever since. Around the age of 14, I fell in love with literature. The first book I purchased with my savings was “The Sins Of a Father” by Jeffrey Archer. It took me two years to finish reading it, after that I bought more and more books. Currently I own 300. Novels and coffee are the only things I’d willingly spend my money on and I prefer buying them instead of borrowing from the library that way I get to keep them for the rest of my life and possibly pass them down to the next generation.
Then I got into writing, which has been a roller-coaster because I always have this feeling that maybe my writing skills aren’t good hence I’ve never shared anything I’ve written with a single soul till I decided to blog. This community is just so welcoming, honestly I feel at home here. I’m so thankful for the people who find my work interesting enough to follow me, like and comment on my stuff. I’m truly grateful…It makes me feel like I’m part of something, I belong.
