10 Random Thoughts You Get While Reading

Reading is one of the oldest and most treasured pastimes. Millions of people all over the world love a good book. Each one has the ability to bring you to a different world, time period, or location; and use it to escape and forget about reality for a bit. Book lovers everywhere know the thrill of holding a book, grasping the crisp pages between your thumb and index, smelling a brand-new copy, and being taken on an adventure. And with that, every book lover knows that with these adventures come a few weird thoughts.

1. Am I pronouncing that name right?

Whether it is a place or a character's name, there will always be a name in a book that we think is pronounced one way, but is completely wrong.

2. This would be a really good movie.

You can see the actors and actresses in your head, the visual effects, the places they go. You feel like you could perfectly direct this movie and make it both follow the book and be a big hit. Then, the book does get turned into a movie, and NEVER follows the plot or idea in your mind.

3. I do NOT like this character at all.

Most of the time, the worst character isn't even the antagonist. It's always one of the main characters or their friends. They always have a way of sabotaging things or just being a terrible friend.

4. Should I look this word up?

We have all had that moment - the moment where you reach a word and you don't know the meaning of it. You think "is it important enough to look up?" Usually, you can use context clues to figure it out, but it's always nice to search the word and add it to your extensive vocabulary.

5. If they don't tell each other how they feel, I am going to scream.

There is obviously tension and some great connection between the two main characters in a lot of books. But why does it take SO long for them to realize that and tell each other? Just say it and be together!

6. Just one more chapter.

That's a lie. "Just one more chapter" is the same thing as eating "just one more chip." The whole book will be finished and the whole bag of chips will be eaten.

7. Oh my gosh, why did you do that?!

The most annoying things in books are when a character does something so stupid without thinking. Some make decisions without advice that can get others hurt, and some characters admit their feelings for each other at the WORST timing ever. like, you had the entire book to tell them how you felt, why did you wait until they got into a relationship or right after their mom died?

8. Ugh, I really have to get around to doing those dishes.

It happens all the time. You get settled in, get a nice drink, sit down all cozy, then you realize that you need to get up and face the messes in your house.

9. I can't get comfortable!

If you sit up and read, your neck hurts. If you lay down, your arm falls asleep. There is never a true way to read and be absolutely comfortable.

10. I have to take a break...   *finishes the entire book*

Secondhand embarrassment, hating a character's actions, a character admitting their feelings for someone at a bad moment. Sometimes, you just want to take a break from being annoyed or embarrassed. However, you have to know what happens next, so you continue reading.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
