You need to read. I don’t want to be one of those parents who dictate what your interests are, but I want you to find some kind of literature and attach yourself to it. Reading fortifies your mind with a healthy imagination and curiosity. It’s one of the things you can do for yourself as a defense from the tons upon tons of misinformation that people are going to be feeding you. It’s a refuge that is always available to you. Even now, your Dad is reading a series of books that he read as a teenager. It’s some wizards and dragons stuff… might not be your cup of tea… but it puts me in a good place.
I’m also reading a history book. I don’t ever go long without trying to learn about another culture or country. Be curious about those things as well. The curriculum in this country doesn’t even lightly brush over history, and even my own country is beginning to lessen the importance of it. I don’t understand why people don’t want to know about people who lived before them. Sometimes, I really believe that people simply think that we world starts and ends with them.
But I digress.
Be curious. Never let what you know be good enough. Screens are nice, but the thinking has all been done for you. Take the time to let your own imagination build the worlds for your mind to retreat. You’ll find that your brain does a much better job than any film director.
Read, little lady. It will always serve you well.
