mydreamsmydesires:

Most people seemed surprised when I tell them reading is one of my favorite things to do. There was a guy at my work recently who teased me for being a ‘nerd’ and told me I “needed to get a real life and hobbies” and that I should “stop reading books, what are they good for? to burn!” 
Obviously, he doesn’t understand that when I read a book, the people, places and adventures become real. They pop off the page and it’s like they are happening right in front of me. A good book is like a lost friend, once you find it you read it and become familiar with it again. Every problem you’ve ever experienced someone has experienced before you, and odds are one of those other people wrote about it.  Don’t ever underestimate the power of a book.
Back to the conversation with the guy at my work, I just went back to reading. I really wanted to look him in the eyes and say, “my love of reading is why I am in college and you are working a minimum wage job. My love of reading is what will afford me the lifestyle I want. My love of reading is why I am going to be successful in the future while you still work here getting minimum wage.”
But I didn’t, I went back to reading.

Perfection.

    I’ll be a story in your head. That’s okay. We’re all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh? ‘Cause it was, you know. It was the best. The daft old man who stole a magic box and ran away. Did I ever tell you that I stole it? Well I borrowed it. I was always going to take it back.

Does anyone else remember Wishbone? I used to love that show when I was a kid.
