This sentence is made a million times better knowing that in maybe 45 minutes I'm going have boarded my plane and seen the sunrise and fly up to touch the face of the sun, Like Icarus

I used to love reading books irl but then I found wattpad so I stopped 😂 but now it's got to a point where I crave to read a book made out of paper and actually own the brook I'll love to read

I love my paper but fanfic doesn't come printed like that so I'll read whatever I feel like reading on a whim lol
