Guys. I have news.
My lifelong plan to coerce my best friend, who is my complete opposite, to the nerd side has at last been successful. Within the last five minutes she has not only professed her love for Flynn Rider, she has also admitted to having read the first few chapters of The Philosopher’s Stone and IS PLANNING TO READ MORE. This… it’s huge guys. You have no idea.
I came into my library to do two things: 1. Get my new OS set up. 2. Separate my to-reads for 2012 out of the massive pile of books on my floor. Found myself lying on the hardwood floor reading The Philosopher’s Stone (yet again) and wondering how two hours had disappeared…

pallid-fire: I am not a polished writer by any means and I have no business in writing books. My words are too short and too simple to merit purchase. But I’ve got dust and I’ve got scars and if you give me your hand, I’ll write my story in your palm for you to keep.

My best friend is so awesome.
She is running towards her dreams and tackling anything that gets in her way. It’s an amazing and inspirational journey to witness. Also, she high fives trees. There is nothing cooler than that.

I just opened all my windows because it’s 70 degrees outside and feels like spring. Love. I’m going to try to get some writing done tonight because I’m having withdrawals. I will be happy when 2012 gets here because I’m ready to make some changes in my life and I feel like 2011 is kind of holding me back. Move along, move along!
