I used to be an avid reader. I would everything and anything I could get my hands on. It was an escape from really difficult times. 


Like, I would read stuff like sociology books (as soon as I was able to read), Homer (when I was seven), Tolkien (middle school), but as I got older, I started using the internet more, and I started to not "have time" to read.


I started to realise as well, that I couldn't see as well, and that I couldn't focus as well (I wear glasses and have ADHD). 


I haven't read anything in ages, though I plan to read a book for a feminist reading group I joined soon.


I do find it so amusing that I read the Odyssey when I was seven, but couldn't finish the Illiad in high school. xD
