Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist: Review

So, the first book written by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn is my last one to read. Was it worth it? I have no clue. It’s definitely not my favorite of the three, but it’s a great book that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Nick’s desperately trying not to look desperate, and Norah starts off not wanting to lose her drunken friend. There’s a lot to be said on just that alone. The entire story is based around the night they meet, but what a night. It’s filled with everything that can go wrong from Nick’s ex finding them to them getting caught half naked by and elderly couple.

The story isn’t only about them though. It’s a lot deeper than just that. The story’s truly about finding that one person who doesn’t just drive you into a lustful fit, but the one who makes you feel truly and completely loved. No spoilers though. Just go read the book yourself to see how it all works out. I promise that it’s something worth looking into.


Your Smile

When I think about beauty, I tend to miss the point. I look for treats that aren’t truly physical. I compliment your laugh, your heart, the way you giggle, yet I still feel like I’m making things difficult. As I try to write to explain your looks, I stop to think and wonder. Is this true, is this real, or is it another thing to blunder.

At a moment’s notice, I think of you, and it all comes rushing in. If I say it aloud, I’m almost guaranteed to end up cuddling. I don’t need to worry about things that don’t truly matter anymore. For when the time comes, I’m right there, standing in your door.

You’ll come to me, and hold me close, not wanting for us to part. I’ll look down to you, kiss your cheek, and tell you that it’s just the start. You’ll look over to see the fact that I walked mile after mile. I’ll just simply shrug and hold you close before I tell you that it was worth your smile.

A poem about long distance relationships and the beauty that some people work dream about seeing.

Writing Setbacks

In everything out there, there are those who have the ability to do it, and those who don’t. Take gymnastics for example. Someone who’s missing limbs can’t really do things such as pole vaulting, so they don’t have the ability to do it, yet there are people who are missing limbs who are able to do it wonderfully.

I’m not supposed to be able to read, let alone write. I have ADHD, and as a whole, people who had it, aren’t able to sit down and read. I also have dyslexia, which means at times, I mix my letters and numbers up a lot. That’s the main reason I hated math in high school. Long numbers that I had to stare at, write down, and work with…bleh. Now, as a writer, I don’t have problems getting my stories out, yet I still have problems when I’m in a lull. I can’t write at times. My mind starts to wander even when there’s nothing for it to wander to.

Even with these troubles, I still go on to write. It may take me longer than most people, but I’ve proven that I can push myself hard enough to do things I never thought I could. I did NaNoWriMo. It almost cost me a few close relationships, but thankfully, those I love didn’t leave me when I was being an ass last November. It all paid off when I finished it. I’ve gone a long way in the months since, and I’m learning more with each day. I really should get back to posting on here, but working about 30 hours a week, working on scripts for my comics, trying to start edits on Daughter of Darkness, and keeping up with the great people in my life doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for blogging. I will try to get one update done a week.

Anyway, the point of this all is to explain that even with setbacks that make it nearly impossible to something, people will still do as they please. It’s not the setbacks that make it impossible. It’s all about how dedicated you are to it. If you’re willing to push through the impossible, even the sky isn’t a limit. There are exceptions to the exception though, but that’s life.

A Moment (Poem)

I look to you. I see you. I think of nothing but you. I want you. I need you. This is all I ask. A Moment. A moment of your time. A moment of your love. A moment of nothing but you. My dreams are all for you. Nothing out there will get me ready for that moment. Any moment with you. I need to see you, just for that moment. Let me be yours. Let me show you all the love that I have.

Just for a moment, let me have all of you. Don’t push me aside until that moment is over with. It’s just a moment, a moment you can spare. A moment you don’t need. It doesn’t have to be the best moment in the world. I just want a moment with you so that I can try to keep you for a time when that moment is forgotten.

For now, All I want is that moment. It’s what I live for, what I dream of, the only thing that matters in life. That moment and all the ones after are the most important part of my life, for my life doesn’t begin until that moment has passed.

Let me have that moment, so that you can have my love.
