Right now, I'm reading:
A little of everything. My focus and concentration is off,so I am having a hard time

My favorite story of all time is:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I know it's a children's book,but it is very well written and a great escape.

In bed I like to read:
Something that doesn't take too much concentration,like short articles.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
Getting my heart broken over and over. But,trying to trust again.
