Day Four: Favorite Book

My favorite book is Catcher in the Rye. I read it first as a teenager and didn't understand it at all. In fact i hated it. I thought it made no sense.
But then years later i reread it and loved it. When i first read it i was naive about things. After Semptember 11th happened i sunk into a depression. I was 16. I asked my parents questions about things like "would that happen near us?" and they answered "we don't know." After that day the world no longer felt safe and my parents didn't have all the answers i thought they did. I became disenchanted. At that point i reread the book and i related to Holden. I reread it ever couple of years and i always seem to find some new passage to love or a part that speaks to me differently than before.

I'm a day behind on my blog. I got sidetracked by LOST last night. Spent the night reading blogs and cross-stitching. Then today i got into a mood that made me miss my ex terribly. Somedays are worse than others. it's been a month already. Why can't i be over this?
I try to listen to upbeat songs. It feels more like im trying to brainwash myself into being fine.


  1. boys are bitches. i try and tell myself that if i wanted so much to be with the wrong person, it will be so much better when the right one comes along. i know i dont know you, and probably have no idea of how you are feeling, but i think i've been exactly where you are, and it's horrible. blogging helps, drink tea, buy nice things and smile if you can help it. it worked for me x

  2. Thanks it really did help me :) You are right about how much i have to look forward to feeling that way once the person is right for me. I really needed to hear that.
    I think one of the first blogs i read of yours was when you were talking about being brokenhearted and months later when it happened to me i remembered it.It's kind of what gave me the inspiration to blog about it as well.
