Tacie, what do you do during your free time?
It is a really simple question, asked by one of my teacher, during the break time. The first time that pops up in my mind was, wasting my time in the virtual world.
Unlike others, I don’t do sports, watch television. I seems to be doing nothing in life. That’s what I thought. Currently in the midst of the term break, I tried to do something. I go for something that is the easiest and closest to my heart — Reading.
I gave up reading when I was in college because I was struggling with my studies. I fear anything paper-like since I got so sick of studying. I refused to even read any magazines. No doubt, because of my busy schedule, I gave up entertainment such as television. I lost my social life, in the end, I lost the battle with my wits.
Nevertheless, I randomly picked up a book at the local bookstore and began reading it.

The urge to read is finally back.
