Normally, it would be aberrant for a fifteen-year old guy like me to have an obsession with newspaper.
You read it right! I have recently indulged myself on reading the Philippine Daily Inquirer in a daily-but-no-so-daily basis. I can’t help reading–that’s it. Once I held the paper in my hands, wait for an hour or two until I am done before chiding me for not doing other stuffs.
Paradoxically speaking, it comes to a point that I blame myself for wasting 18 pesos for the crap (o, now I’m dealing with something absurd here) counter to an hour of computer rental. The cost would even be for a Slurpee treat at 7-11, considering that the latter can freeze the hell out of one’s brain.
Oftentimes I boil down to frustration every time I find out that the paper contains a few sections. Not long ago had I learned myself that however thick or thin the sheets of paper would appear (make it handful, make it less) it wouldn’t affect the price! How silly of me!
Call me awkward or whatever you presume; what I know is that I love reading. My abnormality, which pertains to being afraid of reading that had preoccupied me for the past two months, is totally gone now. The aforementioned was quite ridiculous but then bear with it, adorable reader!
How I love reading! How then I wish you would, too!
