Distracted by the Twilight Saga

I just can't seem to get my ass in gear today. My kids are at daycare, the dog is asleep, the hubby is still away and I can' finally relax. But then again, I have a pathophysiology test and a practical nursing exam tomorrow. Am I studying? Absolutely not. Well, in between commercials maybe.

I don't watch a lot of t.v. anymore--there are exceptions of course. But today I just don't want to do a damn thing. Plus, I am a bit distracted. I went to see New Moon for the second time yesterday (I should have been studying yesterday too). The Twilight Saga tends to get me daydreaming.

I know most people will say they prefer New Moon to Twilight but I can't say I feel the same. New Moon was good, don't get me wrong, but it just didn't have the same effect on me as Twilight did. Let me explain. I used to watch a lot of t.v. and rarely read. Then comes along the Twilight movie. The trailer looked interesting so I went to see it on its opening day and I fell in love. I picked up New Moon book because I wanted to see what happened next, then moved on to Eclipse and finally, Breaking Dawn. These books sparked something in me that I haven't felt in a very long time and I have been reading fanatically ever since. I also started writing again, something I hadn't done since I was a kid.

Some people don't like the books and this is fine--to each his own. But for me it was like a first love, something I won't ever completely get over and will absolutely never forget. So if you haven't read the books I strongly encourage you to do so. They were life-altering for me.

So will I return to studying? I certainly hope so, but the odds aren’t good. I’d rather be writing.
