A lot of what I remember about being a kid is reading. I read as much and as often as I could and I cherished every moment of being taken into these fantasy worlds and becoming someone else for a few hours. I always said I was going to be a writer when I grew up. I remember reading when I went on walks outside with my mom. One eye on the road and one on the book. I’ve moved a lot since starting and finishing university and my current apartment is the first place I’ve brought my book collection. It’s not huge but it contains all of my tried and true favourites. My home finally feels complete with that collection here.
After finishing my bachelors degree and getting a full time job, my love of reading and writing were finally able to flourish. I have no more textbooks to read so I’ve been able to rekindle my love of reading and throw myself into all of the books that I missed out on during my four years in university. Reading and writing have now started taking up all of my free time along with my blog, Struggling 20 Something, where I post advice for new (and maybe not so new) young adults. I’m so excited to share my love of reading with all of you!
