The Journey to Actually Enjoying Reading and Writing Nowadays, I take pleasure in being able to read scientific articles and writing creatively. I can sit down on a bench and become engrossed in a novel that peaked my interest.

I read at a table in the afterschool program. I read just for fun and academics. It was a marvelous experience to plunge back into the vast world of books, and it connected me with my classmates because we would have a new topic to discuss on a weekly
