Growing Up In Our New World

I love this book. For the record, the book is called The Adventures Of Superhero Girl. It is hilarious, and I can’t stop reading it. You should read it. It is a great book. Seriously. But it also makes me think. What will I be like when I am older? Throughout the book, I see Superhero Girl’s triumphs and failures. And it makes me wonder… wonder who I will become.

So where am I?

No, not here.

No, not here.

About... HERE!

About… HERE!

That’s me. And as I read this book (not COMIC, BOOK. Get it through your head), I’m questioning my future more and more. Where will I end up?

 

Will I be someone who drags everyone down? Will i be a failure?

Will I be someone who drags everyone down? Will I be a failure?

Will I be out on a date, or left behind, without even a fuzzy, cuddly, cat?

Will I be out on a date, or left behind, without even a fuzzy, cuddly, cat?

Will I be alone, the butt of everyone’s jokes, with everyone laughing at me?

Will i be forced to NARRATE someone's life?!

Will I be forced to NARRATE someone’s life?!

Will I become evil?

Will I become evil?

Will I become a cynical 53 year old with a passionate hatred for hipsters?

Whatever happens, I'll try to remain strong.

Whatever happens, I’ll try to remain strong.

To call home.

To call home.

To do what is right.

To do what is right.

To do what is right for me.

To do what is right for me.

To cheer up my friends when they are down.

To cheer up my friends when they are down.

And to find my own place in the world.

And to find my own place in the world, wherever it may be.

Finishing Books According To Grover

Everyone who has read a really good book knows this problem. You find a really good book. You love it! You read until about you are 3/4 of the way through, and then you realize something very terrible. The book is going to end. And now you have a problem. You want to see what happens at the end. But you don’t want it to end. So you want to finish it, but you can’t! Then it will end. Grover understands.

This is at the beginning of the book, when you are young and innocent and do not realize the book will ever possibly end.

Then you realize the book will end. The problem begins here.

Then you have a great idea. The book never has to end! All you have to do is stop reading it.

But, of course, you want to finish the book. You can’t help but read some more and come closer to the end.

You want to stop, but you can’t. You have to finish reading. But you have to stop reading.

Now you are fighting with yourself. Half of you wants to finish the book, but the other half doesn’t. This is the stage where people start worring about you.

You go nuts trying to figure out how to solve this terrible conundrum.

Now you start to get really crazy. YOU CAN’T FINISH THE BOOK! So you start coming up with crazy plans, like a reward system.

And you just get crazier and crazier.

Then you finally figure out a gigantic, enourmous plan that is sure to fail, but you don’t care at all.

Then it does fail, you finish the book, and your world comes crashing down around you.

Finally your brain just utterly fails, and you end up crying in a corner because there is no more book to read.

But it is ok. You finished the book, nothing really bad happened, and there are other books to be read. Go find them! This is a good book. You should read it.
