Here's a true life fact about me: I'm pretty nerdy all the way to my core. I love dancing about, I love musical theater, and I love to read.
Reading has been something that I've done since I was little. I was pretty much never found without a book in my hand. In the car or in bed, I was reading. I didn't get carsick and I didn't let a little thing like darkness impede my ability to speed read through a book as quickly as possible. My mom eventually had to take the nightlight out of my room because I would lay awak through all hours of the night reading (although it was probably only 11 pm, it seemed oh-so-late in my younger mind).
In middle school, reading wasn't cool. And being cool was important. So I just...stopped. Stopped reading, stopped embracing that inner nerd who had served me so well for the first 11-12 years of my life. Instead, I embraced AOL and Snake.
