But reading is different, reading is something you do. With TV, and cinema for that matter, everything’s handed to you on a plate, nothing has to be worked at, they just spoon-feed you. The picture, the sound, the scenery, the atmospheric music in case you haven’t understood what the director’s on about… The creaking door that tells you to be stiff. You have to imagine it all when you’re reading…

The world is most beautiful at 4 AM because people are asleep and nature is wide awake.

I give up. I don’t want to become a writer anymore. That’s what I decided last night. It’s been a long time since I have lost the passion and motivation I have for pursuing this dream of mine. Trying and pushing myself to do it is not working anymore. I just become more depressed.

Maybe someday I will try finding what I really want deep inside my heart but for now, all I want to do is find a decent job, save lots of money and be with the person I love in the future.
