I've started reading again. Not sure how long that's going to last. I know that I really really need to finish the growing stack of books that keep piling up over the years that I've haven't bothered to read--however that I feel inclined to still open the pages and read through the words that the author has written. Especially the books that people have let me borrow. Or somebody told me that I should read. Apparently one book comes in, and the next one. . . and well, they seem to come in threes until you're left with a three extra books on your pile; along with the others.

Once upon a time I was an avid reader, and a bookworm according to some people. If I had this many books to read, well frankly there probably wouldn't have been such a pile at the time because I did nothing but read. I would come home from school and read. I would make sure to stuff some sort of book in my backpack to read in my spare time. That was until I was introduced to a computer. Long ago, I had no such interest in computers. I knew of playing Nintendo games such as Donkey Kong and Zelda, among other games. But still no real fancy to them much. We also had a really old computer...I think it was an old Apple computer that we could play games on, but no internet and nothing like the times are now where the sky is our limit.

Books are becoming movies left and right now as well. What happened to just a simple book with words? Not to say that every movie out there based on a book is a bad thing--because it's not. 

Currently, I'm reading "Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief. Yes, in order to watch the movie that's coming out on the 27th--and I heard that the movie was really good-- I most often wait to rent movies so I don't have to go to some crowded theater and wish I was eating popcorn and candy. Instead I read the book first and wait for it to come out. Then I rent it, sit in the comfort of my own home and then decide whether I want to add the movie to the ever growing collection of DVDs.

SO... I haven't been here in awhile. More like I've left a very vacant LJ, but really I don't have much time to post here all the time any more, but once in awhile. There was a time when I would have, but already having a tumblr, facebook, twitter, and other things--even I'm getting stretched to my limit.

Many times I feel like a mind walking zombie staring at the screen, day after day. I'm definitely ready for a change. I feel like I'm always connected (which is good, don't get me wrong). And then again, I'm never alone. But you know that feeling when you're ready to get away from it all, but you still want to be right dab in the middle of it still? Yeah...I'm feeling that. 

I have done a clean up of my LJ. in the meantime. I won't be posting any more of my fanfiction on here. If you still want to read it, you can find me on fanfiction.net page as the  theonlyxception or on my website "A Twist of Passion" or even on my twitter especially devoted to giving you updates on my fanfiction and writings -- shapedchocolate.

 Thanks everyone!  :)
