deathsticks: (52)
Bring on 2013, insert determined icon here. I am going to make it my year and put myself first. Part of it is learning how to say no!

I went a little nuts on the Kindle book sale, I think I bought over twenty books. One of the random books I picked up was 52 Small Changes: One Year to a Happier, Healthier You. The title is pretty much what I want out of the year.

I like the idea there is one goal a week. A small manageable one! Like Week One is to drink more water. The book explains why it's good but it's probably a lot of bullshit. I am going to ignore what I should be feeling and experiencing, and blog anything I find interesting!

Fault In Our Stars by John Green was in the sale. It wasn't why I picked it up though! Two awesome friends mentioned it in passing on Plurk. The book needs to come with a warning, it will tear your heart out. It won't do it because you are reading a story about a girl with terminal cancer. You will because of the descriptions on the world and her thoughts on how she and others see their places in the world. It's funny too, the book challenges you to laugh and look passed all the pain and look at the good things in life and how people try to protect each other from pain.

There is love, teenage angst, a washed up writer, a guy who smokes cigarettes without smoking them and hope.

It felt like losing your co-rememberer meant losing the memory itself, as if the things we’d done were less real and important then they had been hours before.
