School is in SESH you guys. It’s been a learning experience more than just in class. Here’s what I’ve learned. Gotta get over my own pride, but it’s the pride we all have as book lovers. We love hard and deep. We are unforgiving if people attack our favorite books because they have affected us. But sometimes hearing why people dislike books can change us for the better. They can’t take anything away from how YOU read the book. My textbook said “What we do with literature alters what it does to us.” Being open to discussion is hard, but so necessary.
Blogging has helped so much with this. I love reading different responses to my posts. I love reading blogs of different people going through different things. Their experiences become different experiences from me and I draw from all of them. It’s also taught me to be respectful of the writing of others. I like to think I am a good writer and because of that, I tend to get prideful and snotty when other people write. But blogging has mellowed me and let me accept the gifts of others. I admire so many of you so so much and wish I could write like you do! We all have different styles and voices and that’s why writing is great. Sure, these are stories we may have heard a million times but we have never heard them from YOU.
And in addition to all that, I love that you are all getting to know me through my words and vice versa. I feel most myself through my writing and I love that you are all getting such a deep peek into my mind on here. I try to stay always honest and open on my blog. My blog is my home, it’s my favorite corner of my house and I am so happy you all visit me every so often. Thank you for letting me get to know you and for getting to know me so kindly. Let’s all get together soon.
