It’s funny. I still feel like a little girl . I’m still looking around to check and see what other people are doing to make sure I’m not completely different; I’m still looking around for help, hoping for a quick nudge and a whisper of advice. But I can’t seem to be able to catch anybody’s eye. Nobody else around me seems to be looking around and wondering what to do. Why is it that I feel like I’m the only person who is confused and concerned about the choices I’ve made and where I’m headed?

Comments

Ever spent far longer than you’d care to admit writing a comment on someone’s fic? It could be just a simple compliment and yet it takes you 20 minutes to remember how to compliment someone and write it out. Then when you look at it you get this feeling of ‘oh god no this says I liked it but it doesn’t convey to the author just how much this fic has touched my heart!’. I know it seems ridiculous but these authors spend so much time creating such beautiful pieces of work and I can never find the right words to tell them how amazing they are. So to all the authors ,who I have had the joy of reading your work and to all of the authors who I have not had the pleasure of knowing just yet, thank you and you’re amazing.
