i am a mere teenager who finds happiness only in the world of reading and writing, but is too afraid to say so out loud.

i write about finding hope in the darkest of times. i write to spread the love and the courage of accepting yourself. i write to capture memories i will certainly forget, and emotions i will certainly never feel again.

"If you read what everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking." --- Haruki Murakami
