And Then came bigger books and bigger words
That’s feeling where like “ oh my god, are you serious” , when you get assigned a writing assessment. Where you know you're going to have horrible time for the rest of the week. Where your going to find something better to do then write your essay, you're going to procrastinate and end up doing it the night before when its actually do. Yeah that’s my life but twice as hard.
All my life I knew I had some sort of problem towards reading and writing. That something was wrong right in the middle. I just always kept it to myself.

She always told me that we are just like everyone else we just face a challenge. To me I hate feeling embarrassed and the feeling of people looking at me as if I were stupid. I know many people have the fear of sharing out their writing to the class but we all do. I honesty like writing. I can express my feelings. Jot down some ideas that come to me. It’s a wonder way of people getting to know you. I have unfinished stories somewhere in my bedroom from when I was about 10 years old. But I just couldn’t finish them, but know that I’m older I would love to add some more detail to them. Slowly as I grow older writing is getting easier but it seems reading is getting harder.
