Torch Confessions


Ever since I was in middle school I can remember reading books and being so into it, it became my life. I can’t just like something in a normal way, I obssess over it until I find something new.

A good example would be when “The Hunger Games” came out. I made my mom buy the books as soon as they were printed because I needed to know what was going to happen. I can still remember starting “Mockingjay” in the middle of the day and reading it until 2 a.m. and bawling my eyes out until I had to go to school the next day. I was completely infatuated with the series and dreamed of being “the Girl on Fire.”

Another example is my first boy band crush. I can remember watching One Direction on “X-Factor” and just falling in love. I had their posters all over my room, I had every magazine they interviewed in, I even read all the fanfiction I could find. I was convinced I was going to marry those five boys. I knew every single thing about them.

I thought that as I got older I would get over my fangirling tendancies, but it seems like I will be forever in a loop of day dreaming of attending different universes.
