I remember when I was little, like in the sixth grade, I had a friend that was also my next door neighbor. She was one of my first nerdy/geeky friend (and I mean those terms in a good way lol), but anyway, she was writing a super cool story with chapters and everything and it was super long like Harry Potter in a series and everything. But anyway.. she inspired me, at the time, to write my own story and I remember it being pretty awesome lol. I never finished it and I don’t exactly remember what it was about but I remember the main character was this badass girl lol and she was called on to go on a mission or something and it also included magic and dragons and wizards and stuff?? I remember I had the characters drawn out too. I don’t know where any of that stuff went, the story was on a super old desktop with an old keyboard I loved because it was all clicky, but all that stuff is gone and probably the drawings too. Hmm.
Which one do you reach for first? Classics or new releases?
New(er) releases. I find the writing in classics more difficult for me to understand so it’s usually hard for me to enjoy the book.

Day Eight: I Cried… A Lot
Koizora by Mika. This is a Japanese book, based on a true story experienced by the author, Mika. I remember I was in class reading this book one time and it got to a really sad part and I was in tears lol. But yeah, it was originally posted on a mobile website, I believe, and then it got published as a book. Then it became a movie and then a drama series and manga series. I recommend watching the movie though if you can’t get to the book/read Japanese. The movie makes me cry every time.
One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.
