i haven't been blogging. have you noticed? i haven't been blogging because i've been in the depths of "my sister's keeper." i have been reading and reading and reading until my eyes became blurry. i think this is why i appreciate the written word so much. i leave my own little world and become part of another one. i become so close with characters that they become a part of me. i start to identify myself with them, and learn that in some ways, we are alike. i just finished the book about thirty seconds ago. for the past 20 minutes i have been crying. crying hard. like, really hard. you would think that something horrible happened to me, when in my own reality, something has. this book tugged at so many of my heart strings that i seriously don't think i'm going to be able to see the movie. i will not give anything away in this post, but seriously, i have a headache because i've been crying so hard and i'm starving because i've been sitting on my couch reading for the past 4 hours.
