Writer's block. This is terrible. On Mallorca all I wanted to do was write. Now I'm stuck just staring at the screen. I'm finally doing some original work. Scratch that, I'm finally excited about doing some original work and I know exactly what's going to happen next, It's just that Henry here won't really co-operate and I don't think its very healthy to be this cross with fictional characters, especially not fictional character that I made up and are therefore, part of my subconscious, in a way. I would go for a walk to clear my head, but its raining heavily outside, and it sounds like there's some thunder and lightning coming on (or the neighbours are snoring really loudly)

Well, I'd either have a mouse - in which case I wouldn't have to shrink it that much or a... a lizard. No, seriously. I have a huge fondness for them: my father has allergy to animal hair, so I've never really grown up with pets. I had rabbits when I was younger, but we had to sell them after a while. So, a lizard in my pocket. A talking lizard.

That would be so neat.

I'd like to be braver. I mean, brave enough not to just sit around with my hands in my lap. Brave enough to tell the people I don't like to get the hell away from me and brave enough to not care what's happening with me, because it's going to be alright in the end. I know. I've been there, too many times.

And please give me the -3,05 percent of my eyesight that I'm missing back. It's annoying walking into doors in the morning, when I don't have my lenses or glasses on. Seriously

My parents read 'Harry Potter' to me, but before that, it was anything by Astrid Lindgren, especially 'Brothers Lionheart' and 'Ronia, the Robbers Daughter'. But I have generally been surrounded by books all my life, as my entire family are all avid readers. I also got interested in legend such as King Arthur, Robin Hood as well as Norse and Greek Mythology very early on. I had a period when I was ten, where I read every single book I could find on Norse Mythology. Other than that, I read a lot of fantasy, especially series by Danish authors Lene Kaaberboel and Josefine Ottesen. After loving them, I quickly became a fan of Tamora Pierce as well, after I'd read her Song of the Lioness-series.

To be honest, I don't think it would solve a lot of problems. I, myself, am a very private person and I would not like someone else to know everything about me. A healthy relationship is also a lot about trust, and it's not always that you can automatically help what you think. A small example could be: 'do I look good in this?' and the first thing you think is 'no'. But after looking more, you might change your mind: now, if  the - most likely - female companion hears ones thoughts about this, she would perhaps get mad and an argument of some kind would ensue, thus not allowing said other companion to change his/her mind.

I think my whole point with this is, that our minds aren't made to be read. Our minds are the places we process things, connect them to other things, file them, store them to memory and each individual mind is too complex a place for any 'outsider' to read them. It's like, taking notes to a class or a meeting, most of the time, only you can find your way around them (unless of course they're nice and clean, and actual sentences, which my mother keeps telling me I should do, but short words are just more fun, and my hand-writing will never be pretty). If actual mind-reading between two emotionally-connected people should actually work, our minds would have to work differently, like, some kind of filter, so only (I hate this word) 'surface-thoughts' would show.

Of course, I admit it could also solve a lot of problems, but I honestly think it would start much more than it would solve. Whenever I meet a cute guy or girl, be it potential love-interest or just friend, I would love to hear their first thoughts about me, because I tend to make a fool out of myself with my clumsiness and weird humor. I'm always going away from a first meeting, thinking 'oh god, they're never gonna wanna talk to me again!' , but in the cases when they do, I always think about what I did right. It would be fantastic to know more about how your closest ones really saw you, and it would be amazing to be able to actually show some of my special people that when I say I find them sweet, beautiful, clever, smart and funny, I reallyreally do mean it. But still, I think privacy of mind is a birth-right and we'll have to work out our relationships in other ways.
