I don't talk a lot and i'm just alone most of the time. I'm sad and discouraged and thats just how it is. Im beaten down a lot it seems. A lot has been going on a lot of it is bad. Some is good but sometimes its hard to see that through the bad stuff. I'm not reading books fast enough, I’m just not good enough period. Thats how I feel. I feel like a complete failure in most aspects of my life. I start with good intentions but in the end its never good enough. I wanted to start to read the bible, i've never really done it, I grew up in church but honestly i've never really read chapters upon chapters and I probably haven't even read 1/8 of the bible. So the boy and I started a group on facebook. But now i'm way too intimidated by it and don't want to do it anymore. We haven't even gotten it off the ground. I just have nothing to say I don't have very many opinions. Everyone else knows way more tehn I do and what do I have to bring to the table? Nothing. I don't have friends if I talk to people its two or three people but honestly I haven't really talked to them in weeks and one of them I haven't talked to in months. I dunno I feel like a lost cause. And while this is all happening my blog is empty but it doesn't really matter. Not much does anymore. At least thats how i feel.

SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION:
In Angola State Penitentiary, a man is serving time for a crime he
didn’t commit. Riley Baxter is an eager reporter desperate for a story
to make a name for herself. When she stumbles upon the daughter of the
incarcerated man, Riley sees a little too much of herself in the teen,
and vows to help prove her father’s innocence.
At the same time,
Hayden Simpson has his hands full with keeping his little sister in
line, worrying about his job as Police Commissioner, and dealing with
his past emotional baggage. The last thing he needs is someone blowing
the lid off his emotional bucket. But when Riley Baxter storms into his
life, struggling to understand why God would let bad things happen to
good people, Hayden has no choice but to follow his heart.
Now, Riley and Hayden must work together to uncover the truth of the past . . . before someone shuts Riley up for good.
