Keep your knee caps in the proper place please

Oh my God knees!

I can't handle things happening to knees. I was innocently watching So You Think You Can Dance and this girl dislocates her knee. Not only does she dislocate her knee but they show it in slow motion with her knee cap sticking out awkwardly. Apparently this happens to her often. I would be like can we get something put in my knees to stop this from happening?

I had a real life knee incident happen before me when I was a kid at overnight camp. I think I was 11 or 12. It didn't happen to me but it is burned in my brain forever.

This girl and I were running down the hill to the dining hall. She was a bit ahead of me. She tripped and rolled the rest of the way down the hill. I ran to her at the bottom to see if she was ok and she was very much not. Her knee cap was now in the back of her knee. I was probably more freaked out than she was. I told her not to look at her knee and don't move. At this point some counselors saw us and came over to help. Thank God because all I know how to do is not look at a messed up knee. I'm good at that.


I'm kind of freaking out (in a good way) after reading Unravel Me. If there is a love triangle I usually always able to pick a side and it won't change. After reading this book I think I've switched sides. I have never had that happen while reading a book. But besides that Tahereh Mafi has the most beautiful way of writing. It's like poetry, I love what she does with words.

“Loneliness is a strange sort of thing. It creeps up on you, quiet and still, sits by your side in the dark, strokes your hair as you sleep. It wraps itself around your bones, squeezing so tight you almost can't breathe. It leaves lies in your heart, lies next to you at night, leaches the light out from every corner. It's a constant companion, clasping your hand only to yank you down when you're struggling to stand up.”

On the non YA reading front I'm reading Sharp Objects and really enjoying that as well. I'm waiting for the twist. What will it be?!


Good news for me. I think stopping one of my meds for my crazy allergies has brought my raging appetite under control. I didn't realize that one of the side effects was increased appetite. I mean I'm sure I was eating Boston's supply of Sun Chips so this is good news for all.

I know this is not the most exciting blog post but just you wait until I write about my newly purchased granny cart.
