Something I’ve missed greatly: reading for pleasure. Before starting my college career, I read quite a bit. I would still try to squeeze in a novel between sessions, but it wasn’t always easy. I enjoyed the breaks I had between classes and didn’t necessarily want to fill them with more reading. To get back to my bookworm ways, I recently picked up The Martian by Andy Weir. I’ve held off seeing the movie specifically because I wanted to read the book first. If I see the movie first, I won’t bother reading the book. Instead of focusing on the details in the book, I’ll be thinking ahead to what happened next in the movie and comparing it to how it plays out in the book. It really takes away the build-up.
