 I am sad that I haven't been able to come on LiveJournal lately. I would like to say that I have been too busy, but truth be told, I have been to sad and withdrawn to come on. I didn't want to make depressing posts. To be honest, I am not that interesting. I am writing this, listening to Demi Lovato's music and dreaming about the future at the moment. See, not interesting.
I have been incredibly withdrawn lately. I would just rather read my books and get lost in my thoughts. I have trouble trusting people, but I can always trust words. Books have never let me down, not once. All I have been doing is working and watching One Tree Hill. It's always the case. I'll probably be doing the same thing when I am 90. Hopefully without the working of course. I would like to learn a language or start yoga or Pilate's but I find it hard to get out of bed in the morning, let alone going out to find something to do. I know my friends are frustrated but I just cant find motivation to talk to many of them.
Does anyone have any ideas for books to read? I need something different. If you could help I would be enternally grateful.

Also, how is your life? Are you all happy? What are you doing with your lives. I may not have spoken to some of you before, but I would like to get to know you all. Send a private message to me or comment with the answers or just a little something about yourselves.

"I live in two worlds. One is a world of books. I’ve been a resident of Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County, hunted the white whale aboard the Pequod, fought alongside Napoleon, sailed a raft with Huck and Jim, committed absurdities with Ignatius J. Reilly, rode a sad train with Anna Karenina, and strolled down Swann’s Way. It’s a rewarding world, but my second one is by far superior. My second one is populated with characters slightly less eccentric but supremely real, made of flesh and bone, full of love, who are my ultimate inspiration for everything."

To have someone understand
I want so much more than they've got planned

Good, now that I have caught your attention I want to direct you all to a little problem I call change. I think I am turning into a girl. Okay, I am not explaining this well at all.  Most of you probably don't know me very well so I think I should start by explaning a little more.

I swear I was meant to be born a guy, I mean siriusly (see what I did there)...Anyway, yes, I am not girly in the slightest. I have never owned a Barbie Doll or a Baby Born. I, even at the age of three and four, prefered books, or playing in the dirt outside. I got into a lot of trouble when I was seven. It's quite a funny story really, well not so funny but I'm going to tell you anyway. Basically when I was seven I ripped the head of my sisters barbie doll/I told this girl at school that the reason I didn't have a baby born was because they give us a mother complex. They are the tools made by men to try and brainwash us into loving staying at home, feeding a kid, and looking after it. Yes, I was like that at the age of 7.

Anyway, I am the most un-girly (is that even a word) person you will probably ever meet. Lately, I am changing. I own a pair of high heels. I recently bought another pair of shoes (flats) with a bow on each shoe. I am wearing eye-shadow for the first time as I am writing this. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME? I actually care about my appearance now. Am I dying? Is the world ending? I don't like this change. For as long as I can remember I have always been the girl next door, or the tomboy girl next door who never wore skirts, and who always had a book in one hand and some kind of practical joke in the other. 

Sigh. What ever am I to do?
