How I Chill

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Have You Never Been Mellow?.”

After a long day at school, I like to read for pleasure.  I usually bring one book at the beginning of the school year, Mom bringing up new ones as needed.  Sometimes I listen to music while I read.  Reading helps me relax.  I can forget about my own issues for a while because I’m focusing on someone else’s.  Eventually, I get back to my homework, but it’s hard not to lose track of time.
