But sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes we are sad but we don’t really know we are sad. So we say we aren’t sad. But really we are.
—  Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog In the Night-Time

in my english class we’re doing a literature circle and each week, we have to do a different role for analyzing the book. the book my group picked was the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.

this week i get to do Illustrator, which is exactly what it sounds like, so i whipped this up since my teacher told me i could go ahead and do it digitally if i wanted to. it’s very symbolism/plot heavy and otherwise not very interesting to look at if you haven’t read the book, i’m sorry, but at least it has tv/computerheads

people… people like that kind of thing, right

I wanted to go to sleep so that I wouldn’t have to think because the only thing I could think was how much it hurt because there was no room for anything else in my head, but I couldn’t go to sleep and I just had to sit there and there was nothing to do expect to wait and to hurt.
