People say that TV and technology influence youth so much and so easily. But honestly all that garbage goes in one ear and out the other. But books, they transform the way I think, leave burned images in my brain. It scares me. I feel like I am the character to the point where I pick up their bad habits. Now all the time I chew on my lips till they’re raw, because a character in a book did it. I feel depressed when characyers are depressed. So happy when they are. And I just read a book called ”go ask alice” LSD trips, acid highs, and depressing lows fill my brain. Knowledge and experiences I’ve never gone through fill my brain and make me wonder. She, so addicted and trapped, her need for them makes my mind yearn for them. For drugs. Scary as hell it is. I’m terrified. I don’t know what to do. Imagine a book making me want to try out drugs? I know I won’t. But it worries me that one day a book will make me change too much. To a person I am not. I am scared, I am so impressionable. People don’t change me, technology doesn’t change me. Words written/typed change me.
